A pencil is a weapon and don't you forget it (Virginia)

Resource: http://www.opposingviews.com/i/society/crime/7-year-old-christopher-marshall-suspended-pretending-pencil-gun
he did what and they gave him a two day suspension for that; get out of here. Yep and here is what they said; a 7 year old Christopher Marshall was using a pencil as a gun and making (gasp) gun noises when they were in school and the teacher overheard it and freaked out and sent him to the office and called his parents.

The school spokesperson said "Some children would consider it threatening, who are scared about shootings in schools or shootings in the community. Kids don't think about 'Cowboys and Indians' anymore, they think about drive-by shootings and murders and everything they see on television news every day."

Christopher’s day said (Paul Marshall) : I think the school overreacted, “When I asked him about it, he said, ‘Well I was being a Marine and the other guy was being the bad guy.’ It’s as simple as that.” (sounds like he is just acting out the evening news, after all we are in a war. Sorry spokesperson NO drive by’s here)


A new memo went out to the school staff in respect to this incident: all pencils will be as dull as the staff for safety reasons… have a good day
