Public School Suspends 6 Year Old for Playing Cowboys and Indians

By eaglerising   / 14 December 2013   


The age of crackpot zero tolerance nonsense needs to come to an end.

As a child, I played cops and mobsters, cowboys and Indians and army vs army.  If I was a child today I probably would have been locked up on someone’s terrorism watch list as would most of us over the age of 25.

What has led me to this belief?  Because the Imagination Nazis are out in force, goosestepping all over imagination and childhood play.  Banning toy guns apparently isn’t good enough for some “educators” like the South Eastern School District in Pennsylvania.


cowboys-and-indians2This school district has the tagline: “Providing Progressive Education to Strengthen the Global Community”.

With a motto like that is it any wonder that the powers that be suspended a 10 year old boy, Johnny Jones, for pantomiming a bow and arrow?

According to the Rutherford Institute, a civil liberties organization:


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.

 

First of all, that other classmate should be shunned for being some brown nosing twerp who ratted out their classmates over NOTHING.

If the kids in question were disrupting the class and being a nuisance and were being disciplined for that, that is one thing.  For a playful action between two friends that took no more than a few seconds that the teacher did not even witness, they are suspending the boys and threatening expulsion.

The statement from Rutherford Institute explains that Principal John Horton told Mrs. Jones, that under the new weapons policy her son’s actions could justifiably lead to his expulsion.  Horton characterized Johnny’s actions as “making a threat” to another student using a “replica or representation of a firearm”.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

At least he wasn't suspended for being a racist.

Wonder what they'd do to a six year old who jumped off something and yelled "Geronimo!!"...............execute him??
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I send a copy of these kinds of things to the Superintendent of the school system where I live with subject being "good grief."  I want him know all the stupid stuff going on the country so he can "head it off at the pass."  Oh oh, that term is about cowboys! Was that a no no? :silly:

I don't know how many times I "killed" my friends and classmates, or were killed by them, in games of Cowboys & Indians, Cops & Robbers, or good old fashion war.

I probably fired more fake bullets than most soldiers fired real ones during WWII.

They sent the wrong kid home. Should have called the parents in to investigate why they are raising a weenie

The kid who ratted needs to have his ass kicked.

That's the best way to handle a rat infestation in your school.

Actually, the entire school board that enforces these ridiculous suspensions should be placed into wooden stocks in front of the school.

And then the bushels of tomatoes brought in for the students.

Oh Oh, I got my son a  Fort Apache play set for Christmas. Best remind his to keep his mouth shut about it at school or face expulsion.

The school did this kid a favor, he'll have a few less days to be indoctrinated by them. It's time to cut and run from the public school system, at least in districts like this one.
