7-year-old suspended for biting Pop Tart into gun shape

It’s beyond political correctness and into utter insanity when schools suspend children for biting their food into shapes that look like guns.

Park Elementary School second-grader, Josh Welch, 7, was suspended for two days for biting his Pop Tart into what his teacher thought looked like a gun.

“All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun [kind of],” Fox News Baltimore reported Josh said.

If the story could get worse, it would have to be that the Baltimore school actually sent a letter home with the children explaining, “a student used food to make an inappropriate gesture,” Fox reported.

    Did the 7 year old have a concealed carry permit? If not he could have faced charges for mor serious than a two day suspension.

    How is this not terrorizing children?It is the school bulling the kids. The parents should sue the school for scaring their child with undue stress. Poor kids have to fear how they eat.

    This is wrong in so many ways. The degree of ignorance shown by the school district is shockingly unfathomable! This is a whole new level of enstilling fear into people, "be careful of the way you eat food children! For if you are not careful little ones you may find yourself in a sticky situation where the food you were so carelessly eating, unaware that yes a mountain can also be a gun. Misshapen food can be perceived by somebody else as offensive so children you need to think of others, before you take a bite examine your food first. Even with a magnifying glass if you feel necessary. Children this will ensure you offend nobody, even better swallow your food whole" says the note the school sent home. But now that my rant is finished my main point is I don't think the school realizes how many possible lawsuits it just created. The suspended especially. But, also, any parents of a child who now feels unsafe can sue. Wrongfully enstilling fear is durable. Good luck assholes.

    I am too old to even begin to fathom this lunacy

    I am curious as to what logic one would use to defend the schools choice of suspending this poor child. Maybe as a joke poptarts should make gun shaped pastries. :p

    I think school administrators should have zero tolerance for idiots on the faculty!

    This story is but one example of why our sons didn't attend public schools.

      The Park school is a private school, man. Something that may have been relevant to include in this article because this would NEVER happen in City Schools.

        It is happening in public school all over the United States.

    Is schools had a zero tolerance for stupid the whole school board would get sacked so that's not going to happen. This is indeed why kids should be home schooled. That way they actually get education.
