Pennsylvania girl, 5, suspended for ... pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles.
Fox News ^| January 19, 2013 | Edmund DeMarche
A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.
Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days for issuing a 'terroristic threat.' But her punishment was reduced to two days after her mother met with school officials and had the incident dropped to 'threatening to harm another student,' which apparently carries a lesser punishment.

5-Year-Old Suspended, Labeled a ‘Terrorist Threat’ for Threatening to Shoot Friend With Toy Bubble Gun

A 5-year-old girl from Pennsylvania has been suspended after telling a friend she was going to shoot her with a pink toy gun that spits out bubbles, the Associated Press reports.
The kindergartener was waiting for the bus at the time, and did not have the fake gun with her.
PennLive.com has all the unbelievable details:
Elementary school officials learned of the conversation and questioned the girls the next day, Fickler said. He said the girl did not have a parent present during the 30 minutes of questioning.
The result, he said, was that the student was labeled a “terrorist threat” and suspended for 10 days, Ficker said. The school also required her to be evaluated by a psychologist,[attorney Robin Ficker] said.
“This little girl is the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania,” he said.[Emphasis added]
The family’s attorney helped reduce the punishment from ten days to two, but the school is keeping the incident on the girl’s record. It has apparently been modified, however, to say she intended to harm another student.
Ficker told The Daily Item that school employees have become “hysterical” since the tragedy at Sandy Hook, and while we need to address genuine issues, there’s certainly a line to be drawn.
“You can’t make light of what happened to this girl either,” Ficker argued.“The incident goes on her permanent school record. She has been branded a troubled person. But she was suspended for her words. She had no gun. She had a bubble-making machine.”
The girl’s mother added:“All I know is what my daughter has told me and she said she was told she could go to jail, which is a very traumatic thing for a 5-year-old to live with.”
School officials said on Friday they weren’t at liberty to discuss disciplinary actions.

Instead of only telling teachers to report all threats of violence, each board of education department need to give a mandatory training session (giving by someone who knows what they are doing) to teachers to instruct them on the issue of threats of violence by students.
Btw ..... a teacher reported a five year old threatening to shoot a pink bubble gun at another little girl, and the school suspended the little girl? Jeez! And you guys want to arm these kind of teachers with loaded guns in classrooms?
But it was very lucky the quick-thinking teacher apprehended the dangerous shooter before she could actually use the bubble gun.
