More on 10-year-old boy suspended from school for pretending to shot an arrow when the rules talk only about "replica or representation of a firearm"
"Horton characterized Johnny's transgression as "making a threat" to another student using a "replica or representation of a firearm" through the use of an imaginary bow and arrow," the statement said. . .So how is an imaginary bow and arrow a "replica or representation of a firearm"? Equally troubling is how the student got suspended.
According to the institute, Jones was in the front of his fifth grade classroom on Oct. 14, when fellow student playfully rolled a folder into a tube and acted like he fired a shot at Jones. Jones, in turn, pulled out a pretend bow and arrow and acted like he discharged a bow. One classmate saw the exchange and informed a teacher. The teacher took the students into the hallway and the school's principal contacted Jones' mother, the statement said. . . .Are we really training small children to turn in other students for such trivial actions?
