    1st Grader Suspended for Making a "Gun" With His Hand!

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- Mid-Del parent Lydia Fox said Tuesday her 7-year-old son was suspended Friday for "fidgeting" in class.

    Fox said her son, Patrick Riley, who is in first grade at Parkview Elementary, was asked to go home after he formed a gun with his hand and started to pretend he was shooting at a wall.

    "Him (Riley) and a little girl were just getting bored at an assembly and doing some target practice at the wall," Fox said.

    Parkview Elementary said in an official statement that "a student has repeatedly used his hands to simulate a gun and act as if is shooting fellow students."

    School administration is in the crapper. Pretty soon you will get suspended for not liking someone.

    Nobody want to take responsibility for leading anymore. At one point in America a teacher or a principal would have made the decision that this was no big deal.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    They should have been happy, his gun has a max capacity of only 10 (fingers).

    Unless he used "both" hands. He would have been arrested, handcuffed and thrown into jail for that!

    Remember, he has toes as well.

    Only suspended? Not fingerprinted an photographed? Shouldn't we have him evaluated? Put a twenty four hour hold on him in a mental hospital? Seize his home computer to see what sites he has been going to?
    Sorry I got carried away there for a second.
