According to the Washington Post, a five year old boy brought an orange-tipped cowboy style cap gun in his back pack, and during the 10 minute ride on the bus, showed a friend the toy. The child was questioned for more than two hours without his mother called or present until he wet his pants.
“I have no problem that he had a consequence to his behavior,” said the mother, who asked that her name be withheld to protect her son’s privacy.
“What I have a problem with is the severity,” she said, and the way it was handled.
The attorney for the family has appealed the child's 10 day suspension, and is requesting that the child's record be expunged.
The mother was called by the principal at 10:50 a.m. and was told that her son had the cap gun and pretended to shoot someone on the bus. She said that both the kindergartner and his first-grade sister, sitting nearby on the bus, disputed that account.
The mother said the principal told her that if the cap gun had been loaded with caps, it would have been deemed an explosive and police would have been called in.
The child’s disciplinary referral said he was being suspended for possession of a look-alike gun.
The child’s mother is a high school teacher in Calvert who said she strongly supports the school system and loves the teachers at her son’s school. She and her husband, who coaches youth sports, are active community volunteers.
For the family, a major concern is the long period the 5-year-old was questioned without parental guidance or support. His sister was questioned, too, she said.
“The school was quite obviously taking it very seriously, and he’s 5 years old,” she said. “Why were we not immediately contacted?”
If you are the parents of children in a public school setting, or even many private schools, please do be prepared for increasing witch hunts against little boys. Little boys with imaginations and God-given desire to act out good vs evil in play and make believe, are suddenly the target of immense attack, at the hand of de-masculinized Marxist and Feminist controlled education systems. Walking hand in hand with the anti-liberty gun haters, the failing education system has no business taking care of our children.
In today's world, we cannot expect improvement in the progressive schools, as they are headed by the most Marxist individuals and groups, hell bent on indoctrinating the youth against God, family, country and distinguishing right from wrong at the very youngest ages.
Parents, guard and fully raise your children. This is not the time to allow those who despise all things good and innocent, to rule over your families and warp the truth God instructs us to instill in our children.
