7 Year Old Suspended For Accidentally Making Gun Out Of Strawberry Pastry. Why Is No One Being Fired?
When do Americans say, “enough is enough,” stop accepting this sort of stupidity as part of modern living and start firing the people responsible?
A 7-year-old Maryland boy was suspended from school for two days for shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun, according to his father.
FoxBaltimore.com reports that Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, was eating a strawberry tart when he decided to shape it into a mountain.
“All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun [kind of],” Josh told the station.
…A letter was sent home with students explaining that “a student used food to make an inappropriate gesture,” the station reported.
We’re talking about a seven year old here, folks. He didn’t bring a gun to school. He didn’t bring a toy guy to school. He didn’t do anything dangerous. He didn’t threaten anyone. He just played with his strawberry tart and it sort of looked like a gun.
That’s it — and next thing you know, he’s suspended and a letter is being sent home to all the students.
The people responsible for this are simply unsuited to work with children. Fire them. Fire everyone in the decision-making chain. Fire everyone at the school who thinks it’s a good idea until a message is sent and these blockheads across the country get the message. Stop picking on small children because of your mindless, nutty anti-gun hysteria. Get over it already or find a new job!
