COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –A boy received a week’s suspension after a teacher spotted a toy gun during an online class, KDVR reports. On Aug. 27, 12-year-old Isaiah Elliot, a Grand Mountain student, was in his online art class when he allegedly flashed a toy gun across his computer screen. It was neon green and black with an orange tip. On the side were the words “Zombie Hunter.” According to the sheriff’s report, the teacher said she assumed it was a toy gun, not a real gun. When the principal found out, Isaiah was given a five-day suspension. The El Paso

Comments:

A lot of these public school teachers must have been educated by the East German Stasi patrol.

Man... when I was a kid I had this toy gun that was made of metal, weighed about a pound and a half, and this was about... oh... a quarter of a century before anyone thought of putting an orange tip on a toy gun. The stupidity of the left never takes a break. it just gets worse and worse.

This kid was in his OWN HOME. When I went to high school all the guys myself included, had shotguns hanging from gun racks in their pickup trucks during hunting season. Ammo was stashed under the seat. The hunt started after the last class of the day. Nobody got excited about it.

This is a good thing. This chid will never ever trust a teacher or police again. He will never trust the goobernment to do what is right. He will, in essence, become a true believer in limited goobernment. This is how to change the attitudes of the young.

In high school everyone had a shotgun in the window rack of their pickup. Almost everyone also carried a folding knife in the building. You never knew what you would need out for in shop or Ag classes...

Snowflake principle. The teacher said she knew is was a toy--sounds like a nerfy-kinda thing. Best to homeschool. Principle and teacher are a parental team...probably give the nerfy toy guns to their kids and no one is the wiser. This gestapo stuff is really getting out of hand!

6, I was in high school from 1970 - 1975 at Druid Hills High School, about a mile from the Emory University Campus. The rule was 'No blades longer than 3 inches'. Every now and then the assistant principal would show up with a ruler and give someone's knife a check. 3" or under, he would say "you're good to go". NOBODY was ever stabbed. Handguns would get you in trouble. We had maybe 2 people bring a handgun to school and they rightly caught hell for that. But you could take your sliced cheese, or toast, or finger and fashion an Uzzi if you wanted to. The left had not yet had sufficient iterations of their layers of insanity and inanity to have elevated anything that makes one THINK of a gun as if it IS a gun. The left's stupidity, speaking of knives, is like reverse Damascus steel. They keep rolling their wrong-headed BS into itself, beating it down with illogical rantings and ravings, then folding it over again and again, each time adding more ridiculous BS into it, and each time they do this... their intellect and critical thinking skills become increasingly dull to the point of being absolutely devoid of reason. 'Thinking themselves to be wise, they became fools...'

Public School Gestapo. What a farrago of nonsense. 5 day suspension? Why not just expel the kid? Get him out of the school system. Don't let him get educated. He does not deserve an education. For that matter, why not just kill him? Serves him right. School system is just too weak to do what is needed. My G_d, he might even defend himself when the State comes to punish him for his thoughts. And we can't have that. The State will tell you what you can do. The State will tell you what to think. Always the State. The noble, glorious State. The Incorruptible State. Yeah. Right. The State is coming to put'cha all in chains.

Suspend a kid from a closed school’s online classes and then what? Lock him in a closet? I can’t believe that because someone is on an internet call to a home that gives them any control over what is in that house. What if there’s a copy of “Mein Kampf” on a bookshelf behind a child or a family heirloom musket or sword? I hope some lawyers chime in here. Public schools are out of control.

Parents need to make sure the their home computer camera is situated in a way that only the student's head and shoulders are visible, and not give the teacher a panaramic view of the room at home. A bonus to this is that a parent can sit off camera and observe/listen to any potential propaganda the teacher may be inclined to share.

When I was a kid, the 6th graders brought their shotguns and .22 cal. rifles to school, so they could go small game hunting as they walked home after classes. Brought them on the bus, along with ammunition and turned them in at the Principle's office for safe keeping till the end of the day. A toy gun is not a threat. The Principle needs suspended, without pay for five days to consider his insipid bow to political correctness.

If the police showed up to my house under those circumstances, I would not let them enter and invite them to get the heck off of my property unless they had a warrant. A lawsuit for harassment against the teacher should be filed.

If the parents don't sue the jackbooted principal, they invite more of the same for themselves and everyone else. I would be at every school board meeting, every school night, every public event involving that school board and that police department. Also make sure the 'social welfare' crowd is involved as well. FTA - The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office was also asked to do a welfare check at the boy’s home without notifying his parents beforehand. We are at the mercy of hidden cowards.

My school in Upstate NY had a champion rifle team (as in you could earn a high school letter like any other sport) and kids would bring their guns from home, in a soft gun case, onto the school bus. Being out in the country and being more mature in the 1960s than the general population of today, we all knew not to play with the gun on the bus or anywhere else. We understood it was not a toy. (BTW, the bolt was always removed during transport).

IN HS for a few weeks a dozen or so of us, maybe two dozen, carried "bean guns" which looked exactly like a Walther PPK, in black plastic. You poured the butt full of dried white navy beans and the system would feed them and fire them out straight for about 10-15 ft. Not hard enough to even be painful on bare skin. We had bean gun fights in the hallways between classes until the rolling and slipping mashed beans became a mess and slipping hazard and the teachers ordered "no more bean guns in school"....so we complied and that was that. Having a pocket knife in one pocket and a realistic looking handgun in your other pocket was no big deal in 1969 in central Fla.

The damned principal needs a 5 day suspension for stupidity..even if it was a toy gun, 'flashed' across the screen, that boys home and computer do NOT in any way constitute a threat...these freaking bed wetting 'educators' are really beginning to tee me off...Homeschooling is the only answer. I used to have a cap gun way back when, you took the cartridges out, took them apart, inserted a round cap and put it back together and fired it...LOTS of fun and it 'killed' a lot of Indians in it's day..wankers...just stupid wankers..

Recently I came across a bunch of pictures of my sisters and brothers as well as a lot of kids from the old neighborhood. We had about 60 kids on our street and our house in the middle of the block was usually the gathering point. I decided to share the pictures on my Face Book page because I'm "FB friends" with most of those kids today who are scattered, literally, across the world. Some of the pictures were of us preparing for The Fourth of July parades,(lots of flags and bunting on display) our picnics, plays, and one was of our front yard with dozens of bikes, complete with banana seats, sissy bars, and a bunch of kids just hanging out. What I failed to see was that two boys were holding toy guns, the same "cowboy guns" that all of us had at that time. All of my neighborhood friends loved them and commented, about their own memories, a couple jokes about how much times have changed for kids in this country. Every comment was positive. Face Book pulled the post and sentenced me to FB jail for violating their "violent" content rules. George Orwell was a true prophet.

Reply #6 is right. In the 1950s I once asked the HS principal to let me borrow his car during lunch to go home and get my shotgun and shells so I could go hunting with a teacher and several other students. I asked to leave in his trunk till after school. He let me borrow his car and the only admonition was, "Don't forget to give me my keys back before you leave. I don't have a spare."

I had a cap gun during my tom boy years; those transparent pastel water pistols were also popular. We took them to school and when the teacher's back was turned we'd shoot streams of water across the room. Now we need to caution kids not to point their finger guns at others.

My wife is a teacher, and this week was filled with computer meeting after computer meeting. The running of the bulls has nothing on the running of the mouths from what I heard this week on the speaker from her computer. If I heard the terms racial injustice and Covid-19 mentioned once, I heard it a thousand times. It got to the point I couldn't take it anymore and made my feelings known verbally a little louder than I was supposed to, when somebody on the other end asked if somebody wanted to speak. My wife quickly waved me away, and I left the house. Marxists have completely taken over our educational system with PC culture. No dissent is allowed.

Incredibly stupid. The teacher should have kept her mouth shut and the principal should be fired for incompetence. About twenty five years ago, I gave a demonstration in Tae Kwon Do and self defense at a middle school at the invitation of the parents of one of my students and her teacher. I used a toy gun to show a few disarming techniques. This was before all of this anti-gun liberal madness began but it was mentioned later that the principal was not happy with having a toy gun at school but I was not contacted about it. During my childhood, kids running around the neighborhood with cap guns, cowboy hats and bows and arrows with suction-cup tips was a common sight in every small town across the country. When did the mass hysteria take over?

(Tweets/Videos) “The crowd of protesters gathered in Ventura Park at around 7 p.m. with plans to march down to the Portland Police east precinct.

Victor Davis Hanson was on with the Hon John Anderson AO, the former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, to discuss the upcoming 2020 election. The interview was excellent throughout but the key points were made by Hanson at the end of the interview when talking about the upcoming election at the 9:35 mark: We are going to wait and see what happens in November to finish and there’s three or four things that we don’t know what’s going to happen. Either the virus is going to wane. If it wanes by November, Trump will be elected.

There’s pin-demonium brewing at American Airlines. Top brass at the nation’s largest commercial jet carrier is facing turbulence from within after it announced that flight attendants are now allowed to wear Black Lives Matter pins on their uniforms while on duty. The move has irked some of American’s white New York staffers, including those who have spouses or relatives who are cops—because they consider the BLM movement divisive and anti-police, saying it promotes or condones violence.(Snip) “I am completely disgusted at the fact that we can’t show support for our GOD, our COUNTRY, our LEOs but when it comes to BLM

Hillary Clinton was always her own worst enemy on her quest for the White House.(Snip)She’s still at it, saying that Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances, apparently knowing he’s about to go under. Ranting in that same horrible, nails on a chalkboard voice, warning about the “Russians,” still pumping the very same disinformation that she paid for — and failed with — in 2016. But what’s really funny about the video is Bill’s face —

The Grandpa Badfinger Turgid Poll Lead Fact Check Test is this: Do you know anyone who has gone from supporting Donald Trump in 2016 to supporting that basement-dwelling commie puppet weirdo in 2020? I know zero people. I don’t mean “practically zero” or “a few.” I mean zero. Nil. None. That blank is emptier than the space between Gropey J’s ears. Now is this scientific? Am I denying science again? You know, the science that has Trump ahead in the polls that tended to be more on-target in 2016 and a dozen points back in the mainstream media outlets’ polls that invariably support the mainstream media outlet’s political agendas? That science?

I feel no schadenfreude for the grim future awaiting a young woman named Clara Kraebber, though I do hope for the sake of the rest of us that she ends up in prison. Far too many people, many of them young, college educated, and from affluent backgrounds, have become intoxicated from the brainwashing they received in the course of their “higher” education, and feel free to unleash their inner-Shiva by engaging in destructive riots, somehow in the cause of racial harmony, or maybe sheer revolution. Young Ms. Kraebber is no dummy.

Major League Baseball opened this year by kneeling for the anthem and standing for Black Lives Matter. Though, despite the apparent belief that our sports-starved nation’s hunger for baseball would outweigh the league’s social justice activism, the ratings have been in the basement. According to the numbers, baseball has joined the NBA in struggling to get sports fans to tune in and watch games.

The Biden campaign promoted what is being called a “dangerous conspiracy theory” about a potential coronavirus vaccine on Saturday, suggesting that the vaccine may not be safe due to it being rushed for political reasons ahead of the November elections. Speaking to CNN’s Dana Bash, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the vice presidential running mate of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, claimed that Trump may muzzle scientific experts and that the president was acting out of desperation. “Do you trust that in the situation that we’re in now that public health experts and scientists will get the last word on the efficacy of a vaccine?” Bash asked.

Black Lives Matter protesters screamed in the face of white elderly outdoor diners during protests in Pittsburgh on Saturday, disturbing new video shows. Cellphone footage shows the crowd taking over the outdoor dining space with one person even approaching the older couple's table before drinking their beer in front of them; another smashed a glass from a table. One protester tells the diners: 'F**k the white people that built the system.' He adds: 'F*** 12'; a reference to police. Others eating at the restaurant pick up their belonging and leave after demonstrators call them an 'embarrassment'. The demonstrations are in response to

Were lockdowns a mistake? To that nagging question, the answer increasingly seems to be yes. Certainly, they were a novelty. As novelist Lionel Shriver writes, “We’ve never before responded to a contagion by closing down whole countries.” As I’ve noted, the 1957-58 Asian flu killed between 70,000 and 116,000 Americans, between 0.04 percent and 0.07 percent of the nation’s population. The 1968-70 Hong Kong flu about 100,000, 0.05 percent of the population. The US coronavirus death toll of 186,000 is 0.055 percent of the current population. It will go higher, but it’s about the same magnitude as those two flus,
