Gun hysteria results in death. Of common sense

I’d write “only in America”, but the sad thing is that this isn’t an isolated incident.  Basically, kids are being used to make a political point

A 7-year-old Maryland boy has been suspended from school after biting his breakfast pastry into a shape that his teacher thought looked like a gun.

Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, said he was trying to nibble his strawberry Pop Tart into a mountain.

“It was already a rectangle and I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top and it kinda looked like a gun but it wasn’t,” Josh said. “All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun kinda.”

When I got to this point of the article, I was looking at the web site, and around the page, to see if this was a piece of satire.

Nope.

But when his teacher saw what he had done, the boy says she got “pretty mad” and he knew he was “in big trouble.”

Josh’s dad was called by the school and informed that his son had been suspended for two days.

“I asked if was any one was hurt, they said ‘No’,” B.J. Welch said. “I would almost call it insanity. I mean with all the potential issues that could be dealt with at school — real threats, bullies, whatever the issue is. It’s a pastry.”

The school sent home a letter with every student informing parents that: “A student used food to make an inappropriate gesture.”

Who are these teachers and school administrators?

Why isn’t anyone telling them to stop acting like fools?

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
