Suspended for Playing Guns

A 6-year-old Maryland boy was suspended from school for forming the shape of a gun with his hands and saying “pow,” a lawyer for his family said. Robin Ficker said a boy, a student at Roscoe R. Nix Elementary School in Silver Spring, was given a one-day suspension from school with a conference planned for when students returned from winter break for the pretend shooting a week after 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Assistant Principal Renee Garraway sent a letter to the boy’s parents saying the child had been warned. “Your son … was involved in a serious incident,” Garraway wrote. “(He) threatened to shoot a student.”
