Hey teacher lady: Guess what? I just shaped my pop tart into an object that I'd love to show you. You'll be panting "bang bang" uncontrollably and maybe we'll even show it to the principal lady. And if you want to suspend me, you'll have to use leather straps. Really let's get together, I love just think idiotically dumb broads are the sexiest....
Two things: The punishment was too severe. What happened to teacher/parent conferences? Next, a small occurance is getting way too much attention due to the internet.
Absolutely ridiculous to suspend a child for shaping a piece of food like a gun!!! Come on you EDUCATED teachers and administrators... screw your heads on! Your lack of common sense is appalling! You are the ones who need to be suspended... for complete and total stupidity! Are you feeling ignored that much that you need to come up with some lame excuse to bring attention to your school??? SHAME ON YOU! I hope your Board of Education reacts to this charge with a reprimand toward YOU, not the child! What a waste of time for what is nothing more than a petty, completely harmless gesture! I am sick to death of hearing stories like this!
Yeah cuz hysteria on the part of adults always works. sarc/off now.
And so what if he said bang bang?!
Today's schools won't actually give you the grade you deserve because it might destroy your self-esteem and send you into 12 years of psychotherapy. But they will suspend you over nothing. These people are creating a generation that will suffer from free-floating anxiety or just reach the point where they don't care enough any more to keep trying for excellence.
Unfreakingbelieveable! Any moron "educator" that would react to something like this needs to be grabbed by the ear and marched out of the school and tossed to the curb. This is monster horse crap and people like this are NOT AMERICAN. Seriously - scaring a child over a play pastry - at worst? HOLY CRAP!
This idiocy is brought to you by the letter L and the number 7 (the assault version of the letter L).
i was just reading this morning..... in fla 3 teenagers were suspended for wrestling a loaded gun away from another on the school bus
Oh my gosh what will the next big threat be?
Snap,Crackle & Pop
Was this thing loaded? My gosh he could have shot someone's eye out.
Lock this kid up and throw away the key.He is a threat to society.He may come to school and harm someone with a fish stick.Give him twenty years hard time in a toaster oven.
He may have started with an innocent Pop Tart but he will graduate to more serious weapons.
Those evil toaster strudels.
I believe that we are going to have to have Congress put a limit of how many tarts come in a box. He could have made more guns and perhaps, well, um, that could have led to, well, absolute poptart gun chaos!
What a bunch of looney toon CRAP!!
I don't know myGB. Those Pop Rocks can be mighty explosive. Danged pop tarts. Who knew they could be so potentially evil.
Here's a story that got my feathers in a knot from my neck of the woods... http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/03/02/high-school-student-disarms-gunman-gets-suspended/
A pop-tart shaped like a gun is still a pop-tart. But then we are talking about that Orwellian regime known as the public education system.
The question is, will his parents send him back into this environment?
vasectimize this evil kid before he spawns. long live the teachers unions for picking up on things like this. What a joke we are becoming, its brutal.
edit: the teacher pro'bly wouldn't have had a problem with the kid if the pop tart had been in the shape of a fascist fist then held it up and said o for fuhrer.
Oh good grief! It is way past time for this insanity to stop, and school officials ought to be punished, severely, for this sort of overreaction. When I was a kid, my friends and I played cops and robbers, and pointed toy guns at each other, and said "bang" all the time. None of us turned out to be mad-dog killer types. This sort of behavior is NORMAL for a young boy! And if school officials can't tell the difference between it and a real threat, they have no business working around children. They certainly have no business scaring the crap out of a young boy for simply being a young boy.
He does look kind of scary in that picture. I probably won't be able to sleep after seeing this kids picture. Frightening child.
And these are the people we are allowing to teach our children? Seriously? People in this country need to get a grip on reality here.
As a new parent(daughter is 5 months old) I'm scared $hitless. I'm gonna do everything in my power to get her to a Christian school. I would be in serious trouble if they treated my child this way. I'm serious. I don't take crap from anybody. Problem these days the tyrannical government will come visit your home and interview and potentially take your kid. Department of Education is THE worst thing created by this government. They can change what they want in one generation. They get to the kids before their common sense kicks in.
I would be more scared of the NEA that continues to feminize the boys and brainwash them into obedient Marxist. If you can, send to a good private school or home school.
The goal of all this nonsense in the schools is to make an example out of one kid, so as to scare the $h!t out of everyone else. Then they, parents and children, will all tow the line and produce the proper narrative at the child indoctrination centers, used to be called schools.
There's been a story every week since the tragedy in Sandy Hook about an innocent young kid somewhere getting suspended for playing with imaginary guns. This $hit is ridiculous. Aren't educators taught in their college courses what is realistic to expect of children's imaginative play? Do they really expect such young children to comprehend gun violence and to never mimic what they see in cartoons? When has it become a good practice to ostrazice such young children for normal behavior and to make them feel terrible for something they are not mature enough to understand. I can't believe our schools are filled with so many f'g morons. I want to bit€h one out in person!!
I hope ten thousand second grade American young men show up at school packing pop tart Glocks on Monday. This kid is a hero and he's being martyred for the betterment of the rest of us.
Be ready to stand up and show your weapon when the time comes. Like this young American hero.
At first I thought these were isolated occurrences due to a few idiots posing as educators. But it is happening too often in too many locations for it to be just random idiocy. Now I think I know what is going on. What happens when you ostracize young kids for making any obscure reference to or likeness of a gun? It scares them. It makes them think guns are bad no matter who has them. And when they have convinced the next generation to be afraid of guns and to think of guns as evil, it will be much easier to get guns banned. That's their plan. Achieving a leftist utopia requires an indoctrinated society not an educated one.
Far, far more violent than a loaded Pop Tart are some of the lyrics from some of the popular songs.
What about this oldie from the Beatles:
"Joan was quizzical, studied metaphysical
Science in the home
Late nights all alone with a test-tube
Maxwell Edison majoring in medicine
Calls her on the phone
"Can I take you out to the pictures
But as she's getting ready to go
A knock comes on the door...
Bang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head
Bang, bang, Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead."
And that's just the first verse!
And speaking of Maxwell's Silver Hammer, the Superintendent of the Anne Arundel County Public School system, on whose watch this asinine disciplinary action is occurring, is Kevin M. Maxwell, Ph.D.
Maxwell's Silver Hammer indeed!
According to the Anne Arundel County Public Schools website, Dr. Maxwell's e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
And, while we're providing e-mail addresses, the members of the Anne Arundel County Board of Education also have e-mail addresses:
Sandy Blondell, the Principal of Park Elementary School, has apparently taken pains to not publicize her own e-mail address, but I would suggest the possibility that hers is email@example.com .
Guns are a no, no. ABCs are rather difficult. Colors -- we will wait till next year, but Sex the teacher's all have a college minor in so:
This is disgusting, talk about taking things too far. The father should talk to a lawyer and find another school, where the teachers and administrators actually have working brains.
I'm sure if he had turned it into a rubber they would of been fine with that..Seriously I don't know what we are trying to do to our children..Boys aren't suppose to think about guns, what are they suppose to dwell on..??? Every single elder in my family was playing guns from the time they were three..They are and always will be the Great Ones..whats left of them..All I can beg of these parents is to take back your schools , you are their bosses..
Ridiculous, or rather insidious. Teachers are being used to indoctrinate the youth to a leftist world view.
This is getting really STUPID
It is OK to teach - safe sex - gayness - Mexican History - Islam pieces - etc.
but pop tart guns are forbidden?
There is a military mantra - for males only
This is my rifle - This is my gun ---
I forgot the rest----
The rest? "This for fighting, this is for fun".
Of course, these days it would take some hand gestures for the left to figure out what the word 'gun' is is being used for. I can think of another universally recognized 'gesture' I'm happy to display to the left. ;-)
That was only used by the DI's on dummy recruits who forgot to call their weapon by its proper name. The dummies had to run in between Battalion formation of 4 companies repeating that phrase over and over again until they dropped from running between companies of exhaustion. That'll teach 'em. Gotta come up with something like that for these ignorant teachers and administrators. Let 'em run around the school for an hour saying: This is my country (pointing to the flag) this is Marxism (pointing to the textbooks) this is for honor (pointing to the flag); this is for toilet paper (pointing to the textbooks again). Make them do that while wearing a dunce cap.
