Enough of This Madness!

From Charlotte, NC

A 5-year-old boy was reportedly suspended from school after making a gun gesture with his hand on the playground.

His father, David Hendrix, was furious when he found out his son was issued a suspension for the gesture.

“He was playing army on the playground,” Hendrix told WBTV. “I just felt like the punishment was way too severe.”The boy was issued a one day in-school suspension from his kindergarten class at Pinewood Elementary School.

Hendrix wanted the issue resolved and met with the school principle who did not want to drop the suspension, so he pressed further.

“I requested an immediate meeting that night with him myself and the school board, at their pleasure, anytime that night. And at that point they decided it was not worth the effort, not worth the headacheand dropped everything right then and there,” Hendrix told WBTV.

In the school’s handbook, there is no mention of punishment for making a ‘gun gesture’ with your hand, WBTV reported.  Calls made by WBTV to the school went unanswered.

    Excellent! But can we get “principal” spelled correctly? Just saying… Thanks!

    Just like the six year old boy who was suspended for kissing a girls’s hand. They were trying to decide whether or not to charge him with sexual assault. Give me a break!

    Kinda reminds me of when I got detention for mouthing a word. It was a Christian school so I wasn’t super surprised at the time, but still.
