A 5 year old Maryland boy was interrogated for over 2 hours by school officials and traumatized to the point of peeing himself, then suspended for 10 days after he was caught playing with a toy “cowboy-style cap gun,” according to the Washington Post.
What in hell is wrong with these school officials? The child is a 5 year old kindergartner for Pete’s sake! Are these adults that terrorize such a small child that damn stupid and unable to treat appropriately a child of this age? Every last one of them should be fired immediately as they are proving they have no ability to work with children!
Kids will be kids. Kids play cops and robbers, cowboys and indians and army games. Most of us did and the very, very vast majority of us turned out to be pretty good. Every parent out there should contact each and every school that harms children in these ways … flood these school administrators with emails, faxes, phone calls, letters and more. This has to stop.
Get involved! It could be YOUR child next if it doesn’t stop. We must remove adults with absolutely NO common sense from being around children. I don’t give a rat’s behind how smart they are … if they can’t treat a child appropriately then they need to be tossed out on their butts immediately — we need to show them what ZERO TOLERANCE means!
