Pennsylvania girl, 5, suspended for
threatening to shoot girl with pink
toy gun that blows soapy bubbles

Fox News, by Edmund DeMarche

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/19/2013 6:44:00 PM

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. "It´s laughable," Robin Ficker, the girl´s attorney told FoxNews.com.

Comments:
This is a "terroristic threat" and Al Qaeda are just activist militants, or whatever. Be very afraid for your children. Nothing could scar a little girl more than being put through the criminal justice system at this age. [Even Catholics don´t say a five-year-old is ready to "reason," like in go to confession.]

These nit wits are supposed to be teaching our children. They have no difficulty talking about "situational ethics" which is basically a lack of ethics but are unable to see what that situation really is. Thia is madness, our schools have falllen down the rabbit hole.

I think they have the wrong terrorist. Whichever school official who made this decision is the terrorist. Don´t you just wonder how incredibly stupid you´d have to be to do something like this? The lawsuit should continue even if the school caves.

Unless the parents and taxpayers step in, this idiocy will only get worse. I would love for one of these faceless administrators to face some hard questions, but it will never happen. "We can´t comment on these actions because of privacy concerns". Fire them now.

She cannot be rehabilitated.

I recommend a government-run foster home.

Many years ago I had a student (1st grader) put his finger up against another student´s head and "shot" him. The chilling thing is his older brother had recently been shot in the head during a drug deal gone bad. I called him over and told him to knock it off and get busy with his work. The principal did talk with the parents telling them that perhaps the child needed to talk with a professional about what happened to his brother. They said thanks but no thanks. That boy was in and out of trouble his whole life and is currently in jail, again. I had a BB gun as an 8 year old, played cops and robbers and cowboys and Indians and have never felt that I would lose control and kill someone. This little girl didn´t do anything wrong. She should have been told that bringing toys from home is not permitted and let it go. They are making a situation where there doesn´t need to be one. Dare I say it, their over reaction is over kill.

#6, from the story

"A school official overheard the remark and searched the girl´s backpack and did not find the Hello Kitty gun, he said."

She did NOT have the gun..it was at home.

Just think about it: five days a week you send your precious children to be controlled, taught and "protected" by these lunatics! These "Adults" are incapable of thinking like normal adults. they are nothing but hysterical, brainwashed, liberal goons!

Children cannot have a childhood in America anymore. They must be programmed, brainwashed, and labeled by Big Brother. Those children who do not conform will carry a terrorist label throughout life. Scary. Very scary.

A major part of what is wrong with America is highlighted in the phrase "the girl´s attorney."

She is five years old. And she requires an attorney because, in some important respects, certain school officials are less grown-up than she is.

My opinion for what it worth..... ... This school official needs to be fired due to being insane. No sane person would accuse a five year old of being a terrorist for blowing bubbles from a Hello Kitty toy.

Remember folks these are the dedicated "educators" who determine which kid is a "learning disability" and most parents will believe it. It´s all the parents fault by the way.

Mothers: Stay home. Live on less. Care for your children. Homeschool them. If they must go to school (which is not a good idea), go to school with them and monitor the heck out of everything that goes on there. Otherwise, your children will be just some more confused, uneducated, unsocialized lost adults. We already have more than enough of them.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

   

 



 
GM to seek court protection
against ignition lawsuits

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government. In a statement emailed to journalists, the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, as the group is formally known, accused the military of torturing prisoners and killing 50 militants during the ceasefire.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
