According to this, schools in Pennsylvania are now accusing FIVE YEAR OLDS of being terrorists, you guys.
I'm not making this up.
A 5-year old kindergartner in the Mount Carmel school district in PA told her classmate she was going to shoot her with her pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soap bubbles. Naturally, the school went completely batcrap crazy and decided to suspend the little girl for ten days for making a "terroristic threat."
After the parents of the girl tried to reason with school officials, the punishment was reduced to two days' suspension and charges reduced from terror threats to merely "threatening to harm another student." Because as you all know, toy guns that blow soapy bubbles are VERY VERY HARMFUL. Just look at how ominous that gun pictured above is. *shivers*
The girl's parents have hired an attorney by the name of Robin Ficker to fight the suspension, because in today's America, this is what reasonable, common-sense people have to do to fight the evil of political correctness, which is TOTALLY THE FAULT OF LIBERALS. You will never convince me otherwise.
Robin Ficker said of the case, "It's laughable. This is a girl who had no idea about killing or what happened in Connecticut. What parent that you know would want their 5-year-old questioned about making terroristic threats without them in the room?"
And you know what's even more ridiculous? The little girl didn't even HAVE THE TOY GUN WITH HER, when she apparently threatened the other child with TERROR. Still, her teacher saw fit to call her out in front of the whole class and tell everyone that POLICE may get involved with the case. Of course, this reduced the 5 year old to tears.
And that, clever and competent readers, makes me want to punch every school official that was involved with this moronic decision RIGHT IN THE FACE.
