6 Y.O. Gets Detention and Forced to Apologize for Bringing Tiny Lego Toy Gun on School Bus

Lego GI Joe toy gun confiscated by school in detention of six year old

“PALMER, Mass. (WGGB) — A plastic Lego sized gun caused a disturbance on a Old Mill Pond Elementary School bus Friday morning.
Mieke Crane is the mother of the six-year-old kindergarten student who brought the gun on the bus.
‘I think they over-reacted totally. I totally do,’ said Crane.
Another student on the bus saw the toy and yelled to the driver.
‘She said he caused quite a disturbance on the bus and that the children were traumatized,’ said Crane.
The school sent home a letter to parents of students who take the bus explaining what happened. It stressed no gun was on the bus and there was never any danger.
The letter also has photo of the toy showing it’s actual size, which is slightly larger than a quarter.
‘I could see if it was you know, an air soft gun or some sort of pistol or live bullets or something. This is just a toy,’ said Crane.
She is upset with how her son is being disciplined. She says he had to write an apology letter to the driver, has detention on Tuesday and could be temporarily suspended from the bus….”
Here we go again.  Government overreach and the oppression of six year olds by adult Marxist bullies who wastes taxpayer dollars worrying about quarter sized Lego toy guns rather than teach our children how about the U. S. Constitution or to read write and do addition.
And to say that students on the bus were traumatized is well, being a bit over dramatic don’t you think?
In the meantime, no one is concerned about how this six year old was traumatized by the overzealous pc police?
We have not heard a peep about that.  H/t TheBlaze.
