Two First-Graders Suspended For Playing Cops & Robbers

Just a couple weeks ago, a 6-year-old student was suspended for pretending to “shoot” another student with his hand and saying, “Pow!” He was playing of course, but the school officials were alarmed by the boy’s behavior and suspended him. In the assistant principal’s letter to the student’s parents, she wrote that their son “threatened to shoot another student.” After the parents secured a lawyer, they appealed the decision of the school, and the school overturned the student’s suspension.

This very thing just happened again earlier this week to two other 6-year-olds in a Talbot County, Maryland school. A local CBS affiliate reported:

 “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.”

 And these gun control zealots claim that gun owners are the paranoid ones. They love to poke fun of us for thinking that our government will become tyrannical to the point that we’ll need only the most powerful guns to defend ourselves. How silly, naïve and paranoid we must be to think that our government would plan to completely oppress us once they leave us defenseless. Never mind the fact that this very scenario has played out many times in history, but America is different, they say. To say that America would ever follow in the footsteps of tyrannies of the past is un-American. Actually, the naivety falls on those that deny that such oppression would ever happen here as it has in many other countries.

They continue to call gun owners paranoid conspiracy theorists, while they advocate suspending first-graders for fashioning their hands in the shape of a gun.

And on Tuesday, a school went under lock-down because a teacher spotted a “suspicious” teen student wearing a black jacket, carrying a black back pack and wielding a neon green Nerf gun. A SWAT team was dispatched, the school was locked down and all the rooms were searched for this neon green toy. Finally, they spotted the toy in one of the lockers:

 “They eventually found the toy lime green and yellow lever action Nerf gun in a student locker.  Police did not make any arrests and the lockdown was lifted. School officials confiscated the toy gun and say it will be returned to the parents. Inspector Kenneth Lack says the heightened response was due to ‘an abundance of precaution.’”

 Yeah, and we’re the paranoid ones. That “abundance of precaution” that the Inspector mentioned is why we have the 2nd Amendment and why gun owners own guns. It was Thomas Jefferson who said, “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.”

    Teachers and school administrators should all be fired because they are pussys and cowards.

    • TxPatrick

      All? No good ones, Left? :-)

      • Retired Marine

        Tx, there are many good teachers out there, but they can’t buck the union. Go back to my idea of one room school house teaching, and get the good ones away from the damn unions. Our children would benefit greatly from a proper education. Time to teach the proper way, as the public school system is destroying our children. It has become and indoctrination tool of the state.
        If you really want to fix this country, make public schools die out from lack of parcipitation, and with it the unions.

        • TxPatrick

          I would not have made-it ,as a kid, in todays system. Dodge ball anyone?

        • Patriot

          Dodge Ball? Are you crazy? Someone could get hurt! :)
          Ah, what fun!

        • TxPatrick

          “Tag” and one would be a sex offender or busted for assault!

        • Patriot

          “Your it!” Good one. Forgot about Tag. What a hoot!
          Some of these teachers and administrators need to be introduced to Louisville Slugger to teach them a little respect!

        • TxPatrick

          Is “hide and seek” still legal, or is it labeled as ” stalking”?
          I`m getting alittle sad. :-(

        • Patriot

          Probably stalking and if it’s co-ed then it probably comes under the heading of sexual harassment! – Probably both! :)

        • TxPatrick

          “Paddy-cake paddy-cake”, no hope there either?

        • Patriot

          No, no,no! No touching! Molestation! :)

          What would they think about marbles? A weapon since they are hard Ceramics?

        • Patriot

          Marbles? Those would definitely be a no-go! Very dangerous indeed. :)
          You fan break a nail when shooting them. Or they could be flicked into someones eye.:)

        • Combat Veteran Seabee

          I loved dodge ball when it was time to play it!! That course reddish brown rubber ball! I will never forget it, as it was, NO,IS,memories of a much better time in this country!
          Schools in my time churned out educated kids with a brain, not followers of Doctrine!
          My third grade teacher, Miss Palmer, was my fathers, and my older brothers, third grade teacher! Say anything to you people? She was one of three spinster sisters that were teachers in the Yonkers, N.Y. public school system in the 50’s. And taught we were! Not so much today.
          In my time, in my early days of school, you got rambunckious, you got paddled, and you behaved for at least a couple of weeks! It didn’t kill you, or harm you mentally forever, it is just since the liberals have progressed their agenda that punishment is harmful! Hey libs! Look at what you have created! It is ON You Guys, not the God fearing, country loving folks like me!

    • Nottakenyan

      And they( administrators and teachers ) are told what to do by school boards made up of community citizens that are voted in by taxpayers in that district.
      So WHO is at fault?

  • lwayne

    Perhaps they should have played the game **Congressman** where they split the teachers lunch then eating it and then rifling through the other students stuff and spending the booty on their own personal wants. Teacher Union Thug is another good game where they take lunch money from all the students and pay off the teacher to get good grades for themselves and flunking all the students they don’t like.

    Do you have to be an idiot to be a school administrator anymore??? Looks like it!!!

    • Patriot

      “Do you have to be an idiot to be a school administrator anymore??? Looks like it!!!”

    How about “an overabundance of abject stupidity”!

  • dntmkmecomoverther

    ..and we let these same ‘edumakators’ teach our kids for 12 yrs…we truly are insane. Home school folks. It’s our only hope.

      they will be going for that next I’m sure.

      • http://www.facebook.com/danny.strunk.50 Danny Strunk

        They are already going after it.They started in the 90’s but the academical superiority of the homeschooled student has proven daunting so they are trying the usual liberal tripe of how the homeschooled don’t fit into their definition of socialization(indoctrination), racism,and the grand load of liberal fertilizer,homophobia.

      Just think what you are paying them to teach in college that is totally scarry and very damn costly

      • Combat Veteran Seabee

        I went to college in1970, I smoked a lot of pot, hash-hish, did acid, downers, et al! But I got my education. I stopped the “Tom Foolery,” when I realized that I was being a perfect target for Viet Nam with my bad grade point average. I went from a 2S deferment, to a 1A, so I enlisted into the Navy, after the lottery came out! The only lottery that I have ever won! Number 4! My father was a Navy Captain, so I wanted to continue the tradition!
        He was one of the original “Naked Warriors,” the UDT, and I followed by making it into the Navspecwarcom community in the early 70’s. Only 2 teams if you get my drift, I will no longer say more..
        Kids don’t get a real education anymore, it’s socialist indoctrination, I hear it at work and when I dispell their views, they are simply baffled!
        I crossed the line as a human, non socialist hippie in the 70’s! Yes, I believed then and NOW, Country and love of such!!! I will never give up my love for this country, and Oblowhole, you are on notice of late that you have pissed off the American Patriots of this country. Your days are numbered!!!

      Small areas, like a local neighborhood, could hire their own teacher, go back to the one room school house idea. We can then insure the students will learn what is correct, as long as we hire only good teachers.

      • jb80538

        Without teacher’s unions!

      • Patriot

        Your right as long as the teachers have good adult supervision of course! :)

      THIS WILL BE A REAL NEAT GAME WHERE THE COWBOYS GET TO DIP THEIR AMMO IN PIGS BLOOD AND SEND THE MUSLIMS TO THEIR UNHAPPY HUNTING GROUNDS (HELL/FIRE AND BRIMSTONE). THEY SHOULD BE VERY VERY UNHAPPY THERE. JUST THINK, TO AVOID ALL THIS, ALL THE MUSLIMS NEED IS CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND LORD. THEY ARE DEAD ALREADY WITHOUT CHRIST. ELDUMO MAY HAVE THE HONOR TO RECEIVE THE FIRST OF THE PIGS BLOOD—HE SHOULD BE THRILLED.

        I can save five hundred million dollars on Obama’s gun plan. Get the farmers to unload a load of hogs on the white house lawn, and a load of corn to keep them fed. This is how a red neck thinks. Don’t mess with them or the elderly.

          I thought Muslims couldn’t eat or touch pork?

        • Kent2012

          yes before you “dispatch” them you show them the pig and then jam some ham in their mouth, that disqualifies them for the 72 virgins and seeing Allallahallllah

          A burial shroud made from the skin of one large sow would be befitting.

          What 72 virgins??? There aren’t any virgins left in the muzzie world over the age of 12. If there are, it only proves they can outrun their brothers and uncles.

          Nah, let them think they’re going to have their “virgins”. One of the funniest headlines I ever saw was in the New York Times of all papers! It was one of the days immediately following the 9/11 attacks. In a HUGE font…probably three or four inch bold text with pictures of the hijackers below it read, “SO WHERE’S THE VIRGINS?”

        Reading the first half of your call for murder, how can you possibly claim yourself to be living a life WITH Christ? You are not only a terrible witness to your faith, but a deterrent to the Christian faith. It is because of hatred and hypocrisy like yours, proudly put on display, that the young generation is literally losing faith.

        • Patriot

          Gesh, lighten up. Ever hear of sarcasm or humor?

        • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

          It wasn’t humorous and it probably wasn’t meant as sarcasm either.

          And even if it was, I take the destruction of the Christian faith by haters and hypocrites very seriously.

        • Patriot

          To each his own I guess. I don’t know were you see any attack against Christianity or are you one who sees an slight behind every shadow?
          I don’t see any hatred either. Are we both referring to the same posting?

          I guess we can only blame ourselves,for not keeping a closer eye on the education system over the years.But we really need to get rid of this political correctness which has infected our schools.And return to what is morally right !

        • Patriot

          The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality

          Cap guns!?! We used bb guns :-)

        • W_R_Monger

          On hindsight that really wasn’t very bright. I still carry a few pellets with to this day…

        • catman

          Back in my day (and that’s one helluva lotta years ago) we were able to take our .22’s and ammo to school, providing you were in the 9th grade or above. We’d put them in the Boys Vice Principals office (he had a rack for them). After school we would then go to the range in back of the school and up against the hillside. Sometimes the BVP would bring a higher powered rifle to the range and let us shoot it. He even brought a handgun once in a while. That BVP was a Marine veteran of Okinawa where he was severely wounded and he was our hero.
          Do that today and the SWAT team would be all over you like horse poop in the pasture. Later on, we were able to put our guns in the cars so long as the car was locked and we were juniors or seniors.
          AND, this was in the Los Angeles City School district my friends.

          A little later later on (about age 10) I got a BB gun, but had I ever pointed it at someone, that would have been the end of it. In those days when we got BB gun or air rifle, we were given about the same training by Dad as we got for a 22 later on.

        • W_R_Monger

          These weren’t the hi powered pellet rifles of today and when we stepped up to .22 or a 410 the rules changed & you never pointed a barrel at something you didn’t intend to kill.

          I think cap guns were popular for a 20 years period following the end of WWII.

        • W_R_Monger

          We hunted bird a lot and getting pelted with shot was somewhat common when hunting in orange groves and such so getting hit by a pump bb gun wasn’t much different. Not as bad as a paint ball marker (gun, they don’t like calling them guns) set at 580 fps. That’s a 68 cal hitting short of mach 1. We used cap guns as well until someone fell off the honor system :-)

        • Patriot

          A delayed confession there W_R_Monger? :)
          They don’t like calling them guns? Don’t they fire a projectile? A little political correctness it seems. Paintball marker? Will have to file that one away :)

        • W_R_Monger

          After 17 yrs in the Army there isn’t much that’s not worn on my sleeve. Four of those yrs was spent as a Scout so I’m already on the guberment’s radar (list). I’ll tell you something “they” don’t want known, buy a black powder pistol and do some research to figure out where I’m going with this. A 45LC has more stopping power than a .45 acp ;)

          Also my paintball gun can go as high as 750 fps without chopping the paintballs, it helps if they’re frozen if you see where I’m going….

          I have plenty of posts if my validity is in question. I’m sure that you took the Oath when you enlisted (you sound like you have a few yrs in service under your belt) & like myself believes there is no expiration on that Oath.

        • Patriot

          Thanks for the info, I’ll check it out. I have no reason to doubt your validity.

          My last post disappeared.
          Basically I took the Oath of service and spent 13 yrs in Army aviation and the last 4 as an Army Scout, my Oath is still valid. You sound as if you have a few yrs of service under your belt and take your Oath just as serious.

          If you don’t already have one get a bp pistol… A .45 LC has more stopping power than a .45 acp.

          Finally a frozen paintball is as good as any other projectile, my pb gun can be turned up to 750 to 800 fps with no feed problems ;)

          If you have any questions of where I stand I have numerous post which can prove my validity.

          Also like you I’m on the guberment’s radar for multiple reasons…

          Gosh, I remember one of my favorite Christmas presents ever when I was about 8….a “Winchester ‘Shoot’in Shell’ ” lever action rifle. It was a replica of the real rifle, but plastic and much smaller. It actually “shot” a white plastic projectile that probably traveled all of ten feet…MAYBE! It was a blast playing Cowboys and Indians with my friends with that rifle. You know what…not one of us EVER misunderstood that for a REAL gun. None of us ever had an accident or intentionally shot anyone with a REAL gun. It was just fun play for kids! But today you can’t do that at all. First of all, the whole concept of “Cowboys and Indians” is politically incorrect…let alone the dreaded toy guns! I wonder if “Cops and Robbers” is politically incorrect? Am I violating anyone’s civil rights if I call them a “robber” if that’s what they did?

        Whatever happened to common sense you ask ???? Read on sir:
        OBITUARY
        Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of Common Sense who had been with us for many years. No one knows how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in beaurocratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valued lessons as “knowing when to come in out of the rain”, why the “early bird gets the worm” and that “life isn’t always fair”.
        Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies, (adults are in charge not kids). His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.
        Reports of a six year old boy charges with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, teens suspended from school for useing mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student only worsened his condition.
        It declined even further when schools were required to get parental permissiion to administer an aspirin to a student but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted an abortion.
        Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live as the ten commandments became contraband, churches became businesses and criminals recieved better treatment than their victims. Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a hot steaming cup of coffee was hot, spilled bit of it her lap, and was awarded a huge stttlement.
        Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his Wife Discretion, his daughter; Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
        He is survived by two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima Whiner.
        Not too many attended his funeral because too few realized or knew he was gone.

      When Osama was killed he was met at the gates of heaven by St. Peter who admitted him under heaven’s new “open admissios” policy. Minutes later George Washington, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and 69 other American founding fathers approached Osama and began beating him with assorted clubs, sticks, tire irons, etc. As Osama was on the ground crying out in pain, he called to St. Peter, “Help Me! Please help me! This isn’t what I expected in Paradise, where are the 72 virgins I’m supposed to have? ” St. Peter came and said, “Virgins? YOU expect virgins? After all you’ve done, you expect virgins? No, Obama, , err I mean Osama, I told you time and again, if you keep messing with America, there would be 72 “Virginians” waiting for you, not “virgins.” And while the Founding fathers continued to beat him, St. Peter continued, “And so now, here you are and here they are. Enjoy eternity Osama, you’ve earned it.” And then St. Peter slowly walked away, a big smile on his face as listened to the Patriot’s blows and Osama’s cries.

      I don’t think you will have to wait very long because I believe the middle east will be the starting point very soon.
      A person predicted this would happen back in 1969 and said there would be a third world war and the religious fanatics would suffer a great loss. Iran, for example believes it is their religious destiny to conquer but they will find just the opposite will happen.

      What did this story have to do with Muslims? Some of the replies come from people who think pork is regarded like garlic to a vampire. Actually, the Koran allows consumption of pork in dire, life-or-death situations. You guys should learn more about Muslims by talking with actual Muslims, instead of publicizing fantasies about killing them and sending them to hell.

          You do realize your a wacko, do you not?

          First off jerk, the actions of Eric Rudolph has no connection with Christianity! His acts are not the acts of a Christan, but I guess in your warped demented mind it is. You just exposed yourself! You are the one filled with hate and vitriol of all things American and good. You are a Muslim sympathizer. You are no Christian. I bet your an Obama Zombie as well! Don’t lie. Your thought process gives you away troll! Your words also have that stench about them!

          Have you noticed that if the Muslims aren’t trying to kill their betters, the Jews, they’re killing each other. I along with many other Americans, do not need to be lectured about what Islamic terrorist are or what the do. Of course I’m sure your looking at it from a different perspective. By the way, their number mean nothing! And, did you notice how millions of Muslims came out and denounced the 9/11 murderers? Many of us remember those a-holes dancing in the streets and throwing candy to their children. These are also the people that strap bombs onto their children and send them out to murder innocents.This is meant as a rhetorical question but you sound like a closet Ant-American Muslim!

    I admit it! I was guilty of playing cops and robbers. I also played WAR! And some of us got more sophisticated and found sticks that seemed to be in the shape of a gun. And many of us wound up being members of law inforcement and joined the military and served our country honorably. And none of us were suspended from school for our harmless play. People have gone on to call us “The Greatest Generation.”

      Pete, I think that you’ll remember those gun we made out of wood (one piece of wood for the handle, the other was for the barrel; a rubbuer band was attached to the rear of the “barrel”, a small of linoleum was inserted into the rubber band. You reached up with your thumb to release the rubber band, and zingggggo, there went the little “bullet”, the small piece of linoleum….oh what happy days those were!

      • ggswede

        Wow,brings back fond memories.Remember the Red Rider BB gun,or the Fox theatre on Friday nights,then yard work on Saturday morning,then the rest of the day free to do what you want ? Then Sunday school,and the family get together Sunday afternoon or evening ? Or how about the much loved trip to a certain uncle’s ranch out of town on Saturday,where you could play cowboys and indians in a huge barn full of hay ? And of course my Red Rider ,was right there with me ! Try it now,you’d have swat responding !

        • Carol J.

          I was 3 1/2 when I got my Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Then my Dad took me up on Berkeley Hill and taught me how to use it. He stressed that I was never to point it at any person. It was for target practice only when it was loaded. My brother got his the next Christmas. We were allowed to use them when playing Cowboys and Indians, wearing our Roy Rogers western clothes. The rifles were of course unloaded. Never got hurt and never hurt anyone.

        • ggswede

          Yep,my dad taught us as well not to shoot at ANYONE .With four brothers,we all had a Red Rider,but my choice for an outfit was the all black Hoppalong Cassidy outfit.Along with my white handled cap pistols,and of course my Red Rider.My uncle ,used to set us up a target practice area for the bb guns.Beer cans pop bottles etc.,with big bales of hay behind them to lessen the chance of ricochet .As time went on,graduated to high powered pellet rifles,then .22 rifles.None of us ever turned a gun on anyone ,until the war in southeast Asia…….as the Korean War Vet stated ” Oh what happy days they were ” !

        • ggswede

          It was one of the best gifts ever ! The awe of opening that package,and the feeling that finally I was on my way to adulthood,with all the responsibilities that went along with it.Of course my mom protested,the usual ” you’re going to shoot your eye out stuff “.But the gleam in my aunt’s eye’s ,and my Dad’s,gave me a certain feeling,that I doubt kids ever feel in this day and age.With the exception of my Grandson, whom I’m raising.He’s eleven,and you can sure bet,I’ve let him enjoy the same feeling even with his Grandma’s protests.And no,I don’t keep them locked away,he has them mounted in locking gun rack on his bedroom wall.And yes,he has the key.It’s all about responsibility and pride.My aunt,she was a special lady,she was part of a wasp squadron who flew new bombers to Europe during the second world war.

          Wow! a member of the Wasp Squadron! I’d say she was some kind of special lady!

  • ZACAL

    These teachers have been indoctrinated – which is what they’re doing with all students. As a young child we played cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians several times a month. The one thing we didn’t have was violent video games and gross violent movies. And last but not least – a society that has almost no morals. We got spanked, slapped sent to our room. Today these crazy progressive liberals want parents charged with child abuse. I judge people by the product they put out. We’re not getting much today.

    • Frederikahere

      I remember playing those “violent” games also. We also played gladiator using a metal trash can lid (remember those?) as a shield and a stick as a sword. No one was ever seriously injured, no one ever had the slightest inclination to go shoot up a school.

    • Patriot

      The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality

      • Tonto

        Yes, I agree there. And if that doesn’t work, they have recourse to drugs. Many parents are now being intimidated by TEACHERS, not Doctors, to use psychotropic drugs on kids that can’t be bullied by teachers enough to satisfy that mold they’re trying to force kids into. After reading the list of “school violence incidents” and the accompanying list of the drugs the perpetrator was on, I thought….”Just where is the line of acceptable stupidity crossed?” Can’t these morons see the drug/violence connection? Or, is there an acceptable level of collateral damage that is built into the agenda?
        Thank God the kids that I’m connected to are now, and have been since drugs were advised, homeschooled. That seems to be the answer if private schools aren’t affordable to the parents.

        • Patriot

          Ah, drugs! Am I missing something or was big Phara given a pass on school violence?

          I think we need to conduct serious research on big pharma’s role and the association if any between psychotropic drugs and societal violence.

        • Tonto

          The fact that somebody noticed enough and made a list linking psychotropic drugs and school violence and child suicides is meaningful. The link has been refered to on talk radio, and I would think that less brain dead parents would begin to pay more attention…..especially if they have a kid that has been “advised” to get medicated with this stuff. Happened in my family and Dad took the kids (all 3) out of the school system immediately. Happily, he’s death on drugs.

          My nephew, was prescribed ritalin a couple decades ago while in grammar school because they said he had ADD. A month or so later, he was caught with a gun and was firing it off in the basement while his parents were gone. Connection? I think so.

    Whenever I see articles like this I have to wonder about the intelligence of the school officials. I mean people who are supposedly in charge of our kids who have the inability to distinguish between reality and fantasy. Stopping such play and suspending the kids has never saved a life but it does put their judgment in question.

    I believe in the second amendment. It is the right of every citizen to own guns to protect their families from tyrants. With that said, why would a teenager bring a nerf gun to school? It is a toy, but I can understand a little bit of the paranoia that these teachers and faculty are dealing with. At our core, whether Democrat or Republican, we are all human beings. It’s easy to bash these school staff for being paranoid, but most of us are sitting in an office or at home somewhere away from a school where these heinous acts have recently been committed. We want to bastardize everybody and call them a left wing conspiracy theorist when in reality, people are legitimately scared. It bothers me how much hate and vitriol is found in these comments for people…human beings. We all have flaws and, admittedly, I don’t understand how the liberal mind works. Yet, honestly I read a lot of these comments to these articles and the hate and mocking make me upset. Let’s all grow up, show some decorum, stand firm in our beliefs and do it without hate and slanderous speech.

      If the sight of a nurf gun sends them into a paranoia psychosis they are in the wrong line of work. These individuals need to be called what they are. Sissified, left-wing loons!

If some of these left-wing liberal teachers would toughen up a bit we may have been able to save some worthwhile lives.
