Kindergarten Girl Suspended Because of Hello Kitty Toy Gun

In the last couple of weeks we’ve heard stories of schools that have freaked out on kids for silly reasons. In one of the stories, two six-year-old boys were suspended for playing cops and robbers while using their hands as guns. In a different story, a school called the SWAT team out because a parent saw a child with a green gun. It turned out to be a Nerf-gun. The following story deserves to go into the Over-reaction Hall of Fame. A 5-year-old girl has been suspended in Pennsylvania for telling a girl she was going to shoot her. Shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty bubble gun. According to FOX News:

A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.

 

Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days for issuing a ‘terroristic threat.’ But her punishment was reduced to two days after her mother met with school officials and had the incident dropped to ‘threatening to harm another student,’ which apparently carries a lesser punishment.

 

“It’s laughable,” Robin Ficker, the girl’s attorney told FoxNews.com. “This is a girl who had no idea about killing or what happened in Connecticut.”

This is what happens when zero-tolerance policies meet anti-gun hysteria.
