First-Grader Suspended for Brandishing Finger Gun

Once again we see that zero tolerance = zero intelligence:

OKLAHOMA CITY - The mother of a first-grade boy disciplined after making a gun gesture with his fingers while at school says the district overreacted.
Lydia Fox says the principal at Parkview Elementary called her earlier this month to say her 7-year-old son had misbehaved during a school assembly by pretending he was shooting a gun.
Fox says the principal told her the boy would be placed in in-school suspension for the rest of that day and threatened a longer suspension if it happened again.

At least the boy has learned a valuable lesson — that the grownups are insane.

Next: noise violations for teenagers playing air guitar.

Maybe violent movies are to blame for the miscreant's crime.
