from the Daily Sheeple:

finger gun

A 10-year-old boy was suspended for three days last week for pointing a “lookalike firearm” at another student.

The lookalike firearm was the boy’s FINGER.

That’s right – Nathan Entingh, a fifth-grader at Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in Ohio, was suspended for pointing a finger gun at the back of another kid’s head.

The suspension letter referred to the finger gun as a “level 2 lookalike firearm”, which is a ridiculous Orwellian-sounding term for something completely harmless.

Nathan said other kids have gotten caught playing pretend gun games at his school, but weren’t suspended:

“I was just playing around. People play around like this a lot at my school.”

But the school district isn’t playing around – they have no tolerance whatsoever for such shenanigans.

Jeff Warner, the district spokesman, told The Columbus Dispatch that Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year, and everyone should know the rules by now. Nathan put his finger to the side of the other student’s head and pretended to shoot “kind of execution style,” Warner said.

“The kids were told, ‘If you don’t stop doing this type of stuff, there would be consequences,’” Warner said. “It’s just been escalating.”

Warnings included three newsletters sent home with kids, Warner said.

The boy’s father, Paul Entingh, pointed out that no one felt threatened, as the other student didn’t even see Nathan make the gesture. Paul says it’s the adults who are acting childish in their response to typical 10-year-old behavior:

  1. Control by the government needs to start from school. Government needs to enforce that the power in control is to be obeyed without question. Hitler knew this and started the youth corps. They would even turn in their own parents. This is why they want to eliminate home school for they have no control over how the child is raised. Look at what the government has done for our education. They praise and reward meritocracy and the people who cant think for themselves. We continue to spend more and more money on education and we have plummeted in our education level. The only ones that benefited on this money is government control and teachers unions. I know that if we dont remove this government this country is lost, Your choice people get off your dead center and do something. I am providing information to the senior center and lining up people that will need a ride to the polls this November. I am also going to the group meetings that have elected the despots that have raped this country and work for their removal.

  2. So is a pop tart that had a few bites taken of it so it kinda, sorta, if you turn your head just so and squint also a “level two lookalike firearm”? Or is it a level three…or one? Where would one obtain a copy of the scale used?

    My uncle was stationed in Korea-area during the “conflict”. When he got home on leave after 11 months away, he found his new (soon to be old) wife pregnant. He said his pen must have been mightier than he’d realized.

    But not being a total idiot, he knew his pen wasn’t capable of doing the necessary deed. I would have expected administrators in our educational system to know that a finger–no matter how positioned–cannot perform any function as a firearm. Have they never seen an actual gun?

    Who knew! Millions of guns have been sold along with billions of rounds of ammo and all any of those buyers needed was…their fingers!

  3. These schools that have totally lost the purpose of their function need shut down and every teacher fired and their degrees and certificates removed. They are nothing but a bunch of NAZI control freaks anymore and have just become another arm of obaMAOs SS. Get rid of them all. We have at least 3 generations now of our youth Indoctrinated into Fascism and Communism. And this is HOW our government does it. Control the youth and their minds, in particular, and you control society for 25 years. PER generation. And the schools have been used this way since the 1960s.
