"Parents Furious After Young Boys Suspended After Playing With Imaginary Weapon"

No sense of balance or just an attempt to scare young children when they are playing with imaginary guns so that they won't think that playing with guns is fun?  From Baltimore:
Some parents on the Eastern Shore say school officials there went too far in disciplining a couple of six-year-old boys. Derek Valcourt explains the boys got into trouble for bringing an imaginary weapon to school.
What started as a recess game of cops and robbers at a Talbot County school turned into a controversy after two six-year-old boys were suspended for using their fingers to make an imaginary gun.
Many say a suspension is going too far.
“It’s ridiculous,” said Julia Merchant.
And it’s not the first time. Earlier this month, six-year-old Rodney Lynch was suspended from his Montgomery County school after pretending to fire an imaginary gun more than once. . . .

Little boys play cowboys and indians, policeman and robber, and army men like little girls play house and husband and wife and getting married and with dolls.

Punishment for that behavior is wrong.

Markie Marxist sez: "Of course, they had to be suspended! They were acting like future NRA members, and we Marxists have zero tolerance for that! What if they grow up to vote Republican?! That's intolerable!"

The most bothersome thing I see here is not the game, but the social engineering of our children.

It seems that brainwashing is far more important than our freedoms.
