TALBOT COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — Is it child’s play or a serious threat of gun violence? For the second time in less than a month, a Maryland child is kicked out of school for using his finger in the shape of a gun.
No one is debating the importance of keeping children safe. The question being asked is what’s child’s play and what’s not?
There’s controversy at a Talbot County school after two 6-year-old boys were suspended while playing cops and robbers during recess and using their fingers to make an imaginary gun.
“It’s ridiculous,” said parent Julia Merchant.
This is the second time a Maryland child has been suspended for such play. Earlier this month, 6-year-old Rodney Lynch was suspended from his Montgomery County school after pretending to fire an imaginary gun more than once.
“Just pointing your fingers like this and then she did the pow sound and I just went like that and then I got sent to the office again,” Lynch said.
The school reversed its decision after Rodney’s parents appealed.
“They’re saying he threatened a student, threatened to shoot a student. He was playing,” said Rodney’s father, Rodney Lynch Sr.
“I do not believe maliciousness was involved here,” said child psychologist Dr. Joe Kaine.
Kaine says most 6-year-olds’ minds aren’t developed enough to understand why their idea of fun play might make adults upset.
“I can certainly appreciate that at school, that’s not a type of play that they are going to endorse and I certainly support that, but that’s where we educate the time and place for doing things,” Kaine said.
Oh, and read between the lines: obviously these two tykes were dragged off to the school-approved shrink’s office to have their heads examined. Just in case they were budding mall shooters you know. The nerve of the school system knows no bounds. I’m amazed the kids got back into school without a mandatory 6 month dose of Ridilyn to “calm” their “excessive” behavior.
People, it’s time to rise up and beat the lunatic leftists dead with their own weapons. Every single time they do anything you don’t like, sue them. Sue them, then sue them again next year. Sue them for this suspension. Sue them for the psychologist. Sue them for the trauma, whether it’s real or not. Sue them on general principle because everything they do, everything they believe, everything they strive for is guaranteed to be totally ass-backwards to what America is supposed to be.
Damn straight. Then stand in the courtroom counting your punitive damages award, and chant “bang bang, you’re dead. Wash your hands and go to bed.” just to rub their faces in it even harder.
This has been going on since Columbine - my son was suspended for saying ‘I’m going to kill you’ the day after - the next day the same school system suspended 86 more kids. It is a form of government control on the verge of tyranny.
Meanwhile in 1980ish my elder son took a (butter) knife to school and in the same year - hit a teacher - I was just told of what happened, a bit of kurffle from the usual social worker bs - but that was about it.
Bite Me - these people need to be neutered, removed from positions of power and most laws since 1964 - revoked, rescinded and repealed - to include the 16th Amendment, and the 26th - either you are an ADULT in all ways (including health insurance) or you aren’t an ADULT. The 22nd should be Amended to all Politicians in America from local to state to Federal - 10 year max - no retirement, no healthcare (other then what they purchase).
And what part of
do these morons not understand.

Remember when Good Ol Charley Bronson used that gesture at the end of Death Wish. I guess they will have to edit that out of the movie now.

Oh Looky Gang, Obama’s “Gun Rules for Dummies” is out and this nice man explains how Dumb they really are:
Ya think maybe those kids got the notion of shooting each other from movies and TV?
This is what little boys do. It’s how they are programmed by God.
Yeah well, nowadays they’re being re-programed by the left, who lets face it have control of the schools. Like, there are no losers in games, and boys should be free to show a feminine side which of course they learn they have after some loopy parents dress em as girls.
