A 5-year-old girl was suspended from a Pennsylvania kindergarten after telling another girl that she was going to shoot her. The weapon she was going to use was a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles.

Mount Carmel Area School District officials questioned the student without her parents present, deemed the girl a “terrorist threat” and suspended her for 10 days, according to attorney Robin Ficker, who was hired by the family to fight the suspension.

The incident happened on January 10 as the preschoolers were waiting in line for a schoolbus.

Whatever happen to taking the toy away and putting it in a box of baned toys. That is what used to happen when my kids where young. They usually got them back at the end of the year. I think for kindergarten kid a suspension is really not going to drive home the lesson as well as they think it will.

From the title of this thread, I half expected to read about some poor kid dangling in a harness high above a giant stick of Wrigley's!

She is only 5 years old for petes sake... Kids love those silly bubble guns..  Becky has had a few of them from she was 4 onwards.. The little guns are annoying, I was forever telling her  NOT INDOORS!!  She asked her teacher if she could take it into school to play outside during play time?  The teacher laughed and said No, it would mess a lot of clothing..  But at least  her teacher didn't go bonkers over the idea of Becky wanting to take it into school...

But suspending a child as young as five over that?   That is mental..

Liberal political correctness run amok. You know what turns little kids into crazy kids and crazy adults? Not letting them be kids.

Yes ban em. You ever have a bubble burst on your eye? That's a pain no kid should ever endure. It's time we get kids inside a bubble instead of being near the dangers outside of it. How I wish my parents kept me from scraped knees and squirt guns. Oh the torment I endured.
