Boys Suspended For Using Fingers As Guns
Dateline Maryland! What is the difference between child’s play and 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? That’s controversy at a Talbot County, MD 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. I don’t know about you, but I used to play cops and robbers all the time at recess, and I don’t go around killing people. What do you think about this? The right call or a major over-reaction?
