Schoolchildren Nationwide Pointing Their Fingers, Saying 'Bang' in Hopes of Being Suspended, Expelled

It started with just a few bad apples in kindergardens and first grade classrooms.

It accelerating into an epidemic of schoolchildren pointing fingers, pencils and chalk at one another in the hopes of being suspended from school.

"Bang! You're dead!" said one fourth-grader, Brantley P, when asked about the recent phenomenon.

Another student, 10-year old Hunter S, was equally vocal. "I don't want to go to school anymore! Pow pow pow!

"Pow pow pow pow!" he added with a barbaric yawp.

No teachers were available for comment as they were all out in the recess area rounding up ruffians and putting an end to this nonsense.

Could they lock us all up??

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

Watch the movie Fortress

Just get the prisoners to build a bigger prison to hold more prisoners to build a bigger prison to hold more .....


First, kids understand the difference between games and real life. They are also smart enough to figure out how to get out of the public school.

How many kids can they punish or suspend for making gun gestures? What will the public school classrooms teach if they're empty.

It's an epidemic.

I'm telling you...

Laugh or cry?

The issue is where the "finger pointing" can lead to! Oh, yeah, sure. First it's just harmless finger pointing. But next it will be a... Pop Tart!

Suspended Seven Year Old makes a subtle, but key, distinction that (adult) authorities in Maryland and across the nation are failing to note: "It was already a rectangle. I just kept on bitin' it and bitin' it and tore off the top of it. It kinda looked like a gun. But... it wasn't." That is, the CHILD was able to distinguish the difference between REALITY and FANTASY. The father of the child rightly calls what happened INSANITY. The video clip is rightly titled POLICE STATE.

...Or pencils - as with these two suspended kindergarteners!
"But in each of these cases, parents argue that the school administrations are taking their policies too far by punishing innocent children who are simply using their imaginations." http://rt.com/usa/boys-pencil-gun-point-118/

Yes, there is the LIBERTY issue. Also the issue of the traumatizing effect on children. (I was happy to see that the parent of one of the innocent kindergarteners "punished" him with ice cream!) Furthermore, as a country we need our homes & schools to be FOSTERING CREATIVITY, NOT STIFLING IT. The imagination of children is fostered through such things as storytelling, reading chapter books (w/o illustrations), and engaging in lots of CREATIVE, FREE PLAY.

See the (depressing) Executive Summary of Tough Choices or Tough Times - The Report of the New Commission on the Skills of the American Workplace. (We're in trouble, folks!) In analyzing the major problems with today's education system (bottom line they say it's so bad it should really be dismantled and started from scratch), here's just one of the multiple times the panel cites the importance of creativity. In this case, it pertains to [Step Four] the need to "Develop standards, assessments, and curriculum that reflect today’s needs and tomorrow’s requirements" Emphasis mine.

"On balance, they [today's tests] are designed to measure the acquisition of discipline-based knowledge in the core subjects in the curriculum, but, more often than not, little or nothing is done to measure many of the other qualities that we have suggested may spell the difference between success and failure for the students who will grow up to be the workers of 21st century America: creativity and innovation, facility with the use of ideas and abstractions, the self-discipline and organization needed to manage one’s work and drive it through to a successful conclusion, the ability to function well as a member of a team, and so on."

Now I've got to re-watch this scene from Pink Floyd's The Wall:

It could be their survival instinct kicking in

How many of us, knowing what we know of the government school system's methods and goals, wouldn't have done something this harmless, just to get out of harms way.

I understand how that homeschooling isn't an easily affordable option to many, but if my son or daughter were to willingly use this ploy to escape, "the Borg", I'd be careful not to hastily fault them for their suspension or expulsion. This might actually be a sign that they still have enough self-respect and survival instinct to take measured actions to avoid real or perceived threats.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Survival instinct... Indeed, that's the minimum you can wish them to keep.

Even kindergarteners can figure out what statist adults cannot.

I was expecting this to happen sooner or later. Lol. Leave it to kids to point out the ludicrous behavior of these "adults" in charge. The recent AP kid is a perfect example of a harmless innocent kid being punished by the system for doing absolutely nothing wrong.

Aside from the names, this is real. This is actually happening.

They are armed with military assault- style digits!

We must increase security and have stricter regulations to prevent mentally-ill people from obtaining fingers. Call the Nancy Pelosi hotline ( or shine the Rabid Bat light into the sky to call her ).


What I think is ridiculous is that people really think having 10 fingers is necessary. You don't need 10 fingers to type!

End The Fed!
