Post Principal kicks girl out of school for having....a paper gun?

http://foxnewsinsider.com/2013/01/23...other-furious/

"Melody Valentin, a fifth-grader in Philadelphia, was removed from class for pulling out a paper gun in school. She said that her grandfather tore the piece of paper and she had it in her back pocket. When she went to throw it away at school, a classmate saw it and notified administrators.

According to Valentin, the teacher ridiculed her and staff members searched her in front of the class. “He yelled at me and said that I shouldn’t have brought the gun to school and I kept telling him it was a paper gun but he wouldn’t listen,” she said. Dianna Kelly, her mother, is furious with the school."

It's come to this, eh? Far left gun phobic loons have turned the country into what you can see there. On top of killing infants, traumatizing young children is now part of the deal.

People like teachers at that school - You're part of the problem. People are paranoid over an issue that the media has built up and embedded into the minds of nutcases out there.

I care because it shows how utterly ridiculous that the gun debate has become. Additionally, it shows how out of touch and mentally warped this principal is, and many others who somehow find their way into a position of responsibility. Education is supposed to be a priority in this country? Not with idiots like him/her and the staff at that school. Numerous schools have seen similar nonsensical issues. Aren't you one of those "intellectuals" who is open to bash similar people for lacking the brains to see the falsehoods behind religion and their teachings in schools?

Also - you were addressed in the thread about Cuomo.

The "throw a kid out because of a paper gun" extreme is just as stupid and nonsensical as the "lets arm every teacher" mentality. So I agree with you.

This has been happening for at least a decade. Public school teachers can be extremely reactionary beings.

In 1st grade, I cut my hair with some safety scissors. I got paraded through no less than 10 classrooms and the main office with my teacher and principal going on and on about how stupid I was. Then I was suspended for two days.

My brother decked a white boy in his class. Got a warning. Pushed a black girl in his class after she made fun of him. In-school suspension for two days, during one of those days he had to go to an anti-racism class.

I had a friend who brought home lunch to my high school. One day he brought a bagel and some cream cheese. He also brought a plastic knife (the kind that couldn't even cut through a piece of paper) to spread the cream cheese. Teacher day him, he got suspended for a week and referred to the police.

Yeah, teachers can be pretty stupid. I totally believe that OP's story could happen.

While I didn't graduate from one, I did go to a public school for part of my education and no, there really weren't any "retarded" teachers or administrators.

I mean look at this:



That is not even recognizable as gunlike, there's no way someone out of the blue decided it was a paper gun and a student needed disciplining. Unless that person was having a mental breakdown or something.

It seems there is a lot to this story not being told, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of it is based on a lie the kid told.

Is this surprising? My high school had a strict no weapons policy. Some of the deadliest items to make it onto the "weapons" list were toenail clippers and squirt guns. The penalty for bringing either one onto school property was an automatic week long suspension.

Cool story bro time:

Went to the bathroom during one of my classes and walked in on some younger dude taking a **** in a hand soap dispenser. I told the janitor who then told some administrator, and she yanked me out of class to accuse me of being the one who shat in the soap dispenser. Told me they were going to DNA test the turd to prove I was the one who did it. Stupid ***** even accused the janitor of changing his story when he told her that I was the one who called it in and not the ****ter himself. Almost got suspended for a week over the whole ordeal.

She eventually went on to become our school district's assistant superintendent.

High school taught me never to talk to authority figures because they're often too good at being stupid to understand what you're actually saying.

Was the principal fired?
