first of all do not bring God or guns into this neither has anything to do with it but sure hope God does decide who the Dumbasses are why is it that the government thinks they know better how to raise our children but since they are mostly a bunch of jackasses Hello back to basics I got my ass beat when i was young and think most kids need one every once in a while i have 3 and they got theirs only when they needed it but the government now thinks this is taboo think they need to look at the deficit and other government shit and stay out of our lifes and any one that thinks different needs to put their big boy or girl pants on and get a life
Oh my God who are the jackasses i just want to punch them in the frigging face and then show them some real granades this is wrong in so many ways first we cant disiplin our kids but they can oh hell no tis world has went to hell in a handbaskett and the government is to blame DUMBASSES
Email received today from school that suspended 7yr old for playing soldier and throwing imaginary grenade- Don't have whole story until you read email :
I am writing in response to your recent email to the Thompson School District regarding Mary Blair Elementary School.
As a matter of practice, the Thompson School District does not comment publicly on matters of student discipline. In this case, however, the parent of the student has chosen to make this a public issue, and because there appears to be a great deal of misinformation in the media about this matter, we feel compelled to respond.
On February 1, 2013, a student at Mary Blair Elementary School was observed by a teacher throwing rocks at other children on the school’s playground. The teacher, following District procedures, escorted the child to the school principal, whereupon the student’s mother was contacted. Following a discussion with the student and his mother, the principal imposed a 2-hour in-school suspension as a consequence for the student’s behavior. The student was never removed from school grounds by the District.

I wonder if they would have suspendid him if he was pretending to be Obama selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels are selling tanks and weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood? ;-)
Just more evidence supporting home schooling. As if we needed more evidence.
The imaginary grenade goes right along with their imaginary curriculum.
the feminization of our little boys continues.
NO PLAYING ARMY! You must get in touch with your inner homosexual and go and play with the girls.
sheesh that's nothing I used to make missiles or grenades out of my empty milk cartons and sometimes I would even fill them with sand and throw in the air and watch it go splat on the ground...
He is only mimicking what he sees on TV. Holliweirdos need to be stopped from producing such violence. Stallone's new one "Bullet to the Head". Is he trying to subliminally tell people to commit suicide with that movie title?
This just in... 10 year old ARRESTED for "brandishing" toy weapon. The article indicates "no one was injured" but I'm quite certain the 10 year old will never be the same after going to Juvee in handcuffs. Here it comes peeps - kids first to set the tone, then the adults.
Anybody else here think newly registered gun owners are going to be the first ones on the list to get a knock on the door?
Is it just me or are all of the children being nitpicked white? Don't minority children play any more or are there 2 sets of rules....
It should be a make believe suspension to go along with the imaginary weapon. How did they know what kind of weapon was used and how many imaginary people died? The only dead things I can see are the brain dead school officials?
The anti-gun Liberals have created such a “gun paranoia” they are now applying school suspensions for the smallest of innocent infractions and this has the potential to leading to more troubled children down the road. By suspending 5 & 6 year old for pretend “gun play” is just nuts. Most 6-year-old’ minds aren't developed enough to understand why their idea of fun play might make adults upset. But by glorifying the incident and overreacting by suspending them from school, will now forever be a “ vivid memory” in those little heads. And it will not only become a lifetime memory for them but also for those around them and this is not a good thing. Had the incidents just been ignored in would have been forgotten within 5 minutes of play. Now had there been REAL evidence of a danger from a real weapon, the punishment is justifiable. But by glorifying a innocent situation, may be negative attention BUT its still attention all the same and by singling out 1 student will remembered by all. These situations have become way over blown all in the quest for political points and publicity, and it’s the children who are going to pay in the end.
And the fall out of these episodes is not going to be known for years. People will look back and wonder why and most will never admit they were part of the problem.
Look @ what we have learned from the children whom were victims of fires when they were young. If they were not given the proper professional help, some developed a fascination with fire later in their adult lives and became fire starters themselves.
As each day passes and we see more and more of these stories...more problems start to arise...as my grandmother would say..."they done gone and open themselves up to a big O can of whup - ass!"
Nice form kid. Fire the teachers and start over again. Put all the administrators in class on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights then make them disabuse themselves of the Law of Positivism and the idea of a "living Constitution" on pain of being fired on the spot for any
further violation of same.
Might as well ban children now and make it illegal to have children. They aren't allowed to have imaginations anymore which is pathetic and part of what is wrong with our culture. Infringe on freedom of speech but what about from of thought? This is ridiculous since it was only an imagination and NOTHING was thrown to take the place of the imaginary grenade. Heck he was only emulating soldiers.
Time to Sack up America....Every parent should attend their next School Board meeting and tell them to stand down with this utter BS and take action if they refuse..
The child's incarceration may be justified if the imaginary forces were gay. I can see officials labeling this a hate crime.
Did they find the pin? They need to be careful because it may still be intact!
The imagination of the adults in this case is more real than that of the children.
You just have to laugh because it's so damn stupid and maddening. These people has lost their flipping minds.
IDIOTS!!! And this is in my own back yard??? If anywhere should be OK with this kind of thing it's Colorado.
Look, let me preach to the choir here: one of these days, young boys like mine will grow up to walk the line and carry real firearms to keep dear old dad and all these liberals safe from harm.
The USA is a soap bubble of safety because we take the fight to the bad guys and blow holes in their deserts instead of in our cities. It's ugly, but that's how it is.
I grew up on a military base, myself, and playing at "war" was one of our favorite pastimes. I don't think our M-16 carrying parents had an issue with it. It's only in the soap bubble that people are free to think in such a lofty way that they forget the ugly truth behind their illusion of security.
[ed] PS: we are home schoolers and proud.
"No weapons, real or imaginary"
Thought police anyone? Seriously.
You know, hang on... they'll eventually throw every little boy out of public school, as I can't honestly think of any little boy who hasn't fought or imagined a stick to be a weapon of some kind at some point, ...and getting the kids outside public school is what we want.
Keep going on, guys! In fact, make that suspension permanent, district-wide. I also think you should completely ban anything with sugar or salt in it. If the kids eat anything with sugar or salt, you should send them home, permanently.
Home schooling and private schooling is the future, and I'm alright if they want to help push people in that direction.

Progress Monitoring of Prior Year’s Performance Targets
I live in the area where a five year-old told two friends that she was going to shoot them with her bubble machine. She was suspended - and before she was suspended - interrogated like a common criminal. The school officials claimed that they were just following the law. I guess the law didn't stipulate that you treat a little kid differently than someone older, and they didn't have the common sense to do so on their own.
Scoop, I'm with you. Fire these yahoos who come up with these foolish rules. Next thing you know they'll want to take babies from the womb to re educate them before birth. Evil must be stopped NOW!
Irony: the same people who insist that we should 'practice tolerance' are same people who insist on 'zero tolerance' policies and zones for things they can't tolerate (common sense, for example)
Ok, I've finally come to a conclusion as to why these people keep doing this. It's very simple, actually. They are not trying to influence you or me as to whether these kids did anything wrong. That will never happen. We know better and we realize these situations are ridiculous.
The targeted goal for them is to influence the kids themselves, either by the expulsion itself or by the fear of other kids that they will also get kicked out. It's indoctrination at it's fullest extent. Before long, the kids will be saying to themselves and to each other, "Hey, it's criminal to think for ourselves. We must think the way the handlers tell us to think."
This is very dangerous and should be attacked where it is being fought - in the minds of our children. We must double down to ensure that our kids are not influenced by this intimidation tactic.
