Kid(KINDERGARTEN, mind you) shows friend his cap gun.
School officials at Dowell Elementary School in the town of Lusby
proceeded to question the five-year-old for over two hours before
finally calling his mother, whom The Post also does not name.
The principal eventually called the boy’s mother at 10:50 a.m. By
that time, the five-year-old had wet his pants (which the mother called
Major-level stupid, right? But wait, there's MORE!
The Post explains that the principal — Jennifer L. Young, according to
Dowell Elementary’s website — told the kindergartener’s mother that
things would have been even worse had the toy gun been loaded with caps.
In that case, the school would have regarded the plaything as an
explosive and called the police.
Jennifer L. Young, you're a fucking idiot. And a disgrace to the profession of teaching. I don't care what the effing regulations say, you could have handled this a LOT better. Instead, you've terrified a little kid and screwed with his life. Considering the PROM, probably forever.
The 10-day suspension is officially for possessing a look-alike gun,
notes the Post. If the suspension is not lifted, the kindergartener
won’t be able to go to school the rest of the year. The suspension will
also be part of his permanent academic record.
