Give Me A Break

Last spring a five year old boy was suspended from freakin kindergarten at Templeton Elementary School in Riverdale, Prince George’s County, for violating school rules. What rule you ask? This one:

Prince George’s school policy states that students can be suspended for bringing to school weapons, instruments that can be used as weapons or instruments that look like weapons.

Take a close look at what this kid had in his backpack, to the left of this text, and consider if anyone could have had a valid belief that this looked like or could, except under circumstances that would include shoes and backpacks, be used as a weapon.
