What used to be called imagination is now called "A Level 2 look alike firearm", and will get your 10 year old a 3 day suspension (external - login to view)

(CNN) -- Ten-year-old Nathan Entingh doesn't understand why he got suspended from school for three days.

According to his father, Paul Entingh, one moment the boy was "goofing off" with his friends in fifth grade science class, and the next the teacher was taking him out of the classroom invoking Ohio's zero-tolerance policy.

The offense? Nathan was "making his fingers look like a gun, having the thumb up and the pointed finger sticking out," said Entingh, describing the February 26 incident.

more fun from the handholding politically squeamish crowd:

Heavens to Murgatroyd, it was only 60 years ago we took our cap guns to school and played Cowboys and Indians at lunch time and believe it or not, not one kid at school was killed!

Are there any adults in the teachers profession are there any adults on the
School Board? This is not only stupid and a bully tactic its a huge waste of
money patrolling the grounds making sure no one makes the deadly gun
finger trick. Do these people know how silly they look in the eyes of the public?
Besides guns are part of the society and in the constitution.
They want children to stay in school, yet school is not a place young people want
to be anymore.

When we went to school we were taught to be smart, nowadays the kids are taught to be stupid, which I suppose is not surprising when you look at some of the examples! - What kind of society is it when Kids can't play Cowboys & Indians and are afraid to touch door handles? Or eat Peanut butter?
