    The worst thing is that the neighbor who called the cops said that she knew that it wad a toy, but found it "disturbing". The police should have told her to go pound sand. Since when do the emotional states of idiots constitute criminal intent in third parties?

    And the two kids were basically expelled for the rest of the school year BTW. They have a hearing in January to decide if it's permanent. Schools not backing down on this one. Just another step in the process of conformity by public schools.

    The kids were shooting at other kids while waiting for the bus to pick them up. I know the stop is on private property and all, but it happened in a situation where the school has a legitimate stake in the safety of the kids.

    Bull. The kids were shooting toys on private property. The school has no authority there. Can a school suspend my daughters if I take them to a gun show? Can it suspend them if I bring them to a pistol range and teach them to shoot? How about if I take them hunting?

    If we allow schools to dictate the conduct of children while they are in their parents' care, then the schools are no longer acting in loco parentis, the parents are acting in loco scolarum, with the assumption that scolarum trumps parentis.

    Thing is they weren't at a gun show. They were ten feet or less from the school bus stop. The parents should have made it clear not to be playing with those so close to the bus stop.

    At the same time, bus stops are everywhere. If we allow the public schools to dicate what goes on near all of them, then we're giving them jurisdiction over a whole lot of ground.

    Another thing to consider is that the schools are considered to be responsible for the safety of the students while in their care (legally speaking). So, the next question is whether the schools are responsible for safety of the kids while at the bus stop. (Because if they are, then they've failed more times than I can count).

    I can sort of see the school's point and at the same time, it's making people feel like they're not free anywhere. It's also ruining lives.

    I'm sorry noony but that's bullshit. These schools are getting out of control. Are they going to
    start asking kids if they have toy guns at home??? These assclowns need to be slapped down
    and the parents need to demand the school officials be fired. WTF is wrong with people today??
    Have they lost all common sense and replaced it with PC????
    May the FORCE be with you!

    According to the article, it appears some of the kids did go too far in how they played, but as mentioned before, it's a home issue. It shouldn't be a legal issue or a school issue. They're turning into Nazi Germany.

    It is felonious assault to shoot someone with a pellet or bb gun, if the parents of the kids who were shot had decided to file charges. It happened while waiting for the school bus, so the school has an interest in the matter.


    It's not about playing with a toy gun, it's about assaulting another kid with a pellet gun-it might not be a deadly weapon, but it's still a weapon that can cause injury. Schools can't tolerate that type of behavior from the students.

    A question was asked in the comments: Had one of the kids been kissing another kid in the yard, would it violate the school's sexual harassment policy?
