Boys Suspended for Playing with Toy Guns at Home

Why are we jeopardizing this young man’s education? I remember when my brother and I were kids and we had kumquat wars on our bikes (BTW getting hit by a kumquat from a speeding bike hurts,,, I mean really) and played demolition derby in out neighborhood canals with our small motor boats, We even skateboarded on sidewalks and yes, our neighborhood kids would have toy gun battles all over the neighborhood. These terrible “dangerous delinquents” grew up to wonderful mothers and fathers, business owners, doctors, lawyers and very constructive members of society. Today kids can’t run through the neighborhood playing because they can get in trouble for just being kids. I guess its probably better to just have then stay home isolated and playing video games. This school’s attitude DISGUSTS me.
