Two First-Graders Suspended For Playing Cops & Robbers


This is getting absolutely insane. Now play will be regulated and approved. I suppose if the student where in a violent video game firing at a terrorist it would be ok? Actually, I guess it wouldn’t be ok unless he was either a cop or some other government agent. Welcome to a new Amerika, one where the only ones who can defend themselves, even in play, are government agents.

Just a couple weeks ago, a 6-year-old student was suspended for pretending to “shoot” another student with his hand and saying, “Pow!” He was playing of course, but the school officials were alarmed by the boy’s behavior and suspended him. In the assistant principal’s letter to the student’s parents, she wrote that their son “threatened to shoot another student.” After the parents secured a lawyer, they appealed the decision of the school, and the school overturned the student’s suspension.
