    I didn't see this posted yet.....this is just crazy! They're going a little overboard with this shit...they are 1ST GRADERS!!
    When we were kids it was always Cops & Robbers, or Cowboys and Indians! What's wrong with these people?

    First-graders reportedly suspended for using fingers as ‘guns’ while playing cops and robbers
    In a move parents condemned as excessive, two 6-year-old boys at White Marsh Elementary in Trappe, Md. were reportedly punished with suspension for allegedly ‘shooting’ each other with imaginary guns.

    Stephen Grafton said he is upset that his son was removed from school for pretending to shoot a gun during playtime. He thinks the school's staff missed a valuable teaching opportunity.

    And once again the re-education gulag marches on.

    How many children over the years have played cops and robbers and how many went on to shoot up schools or theatres? Hello idiots in the public school system, get a freaking clue!

    One of the outings my children look forward to is nerf-gun battles with other homeschoolers.

    How long will folks keep sending their children to these indoctrination camps...

    Holy cow, I can't believe this story is on here. Steve is an old friend of mine who graduated HS with me. I read this in the paper the other day, it's ridiculous.
