    Judge Upholds Suspension Of Boy In Pastry Gun Incident

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. —
    A major blow for a father trying to clear his son’s name. The suspension of a seven-year-old boy after he chewed his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun has been upheld by a circuit court judge.

    The student’s father, B.J. Welch, took the matter to court in hopes of having the suspension reversed and expunged from his son’s record.

    Anne Arundel County Schools reacted to the ruling by releasing a statement which said, “We have believed from the outset that the actions of the school staff were not only appropriate and consistent, but in the best interests of all students.”

    Welch family attorney Robin Ficker lamented the ruling and pointed out there was “no violence, no real weapon, no ammunition.” But the suspension will now “be on [Joshua’s] record in school… every time he goes into a new grade.”

    JFC, is a complete lack of common sense the major prerequisite for being a public school administrator these days?

    It's unbelievable that this was ever an issue to begin with. But to think that such a stupid decision could actually be reviewed and upheld is proof that the whole system needs to be burned to the ground.

    If he was a Muslim he could've sued the school and gotten an invite to the white house.

    Wahh, my kid has a mark on his permanent record. Jesus Christ kids get suspended all the time. It's not like registering as a sex offender.

    Those who can, do.

    Those who can't, teach.

    Those who can't teach, administer.

    I took a wooden gun my father made for me to show n' tell. Today my father would be in jail and I'd be in reform school. I miss the old days.

    During hunting season, some seniors came to school with rifles in the gun rack of their trucks. My buddy Mike got a new shot gun for Christmas. Mike's dad and the school principle were friends. First day back from Christmas break, I drove past Mike and the principle, who were checking out his new gun in the school parking lot.

    so this father fought a 2 day suspension for over 3 years--seems a little out there
    and the school claims this boy was involved in 20 or so incidents at school prior to this suspension

    I was in the 4th grade and went fishing with my buddy. Monday I get to school with my 2" pocket knife we cut worms with. The teacher took it after I explained why I had it and said if I wanted it back, my mom would have to come get it. It's probably still there! (early 70's)

    Today, the school would be locked down, swat team taking me down, and 500 TV crews. Nobody has any common sense today.

    I think common sense was pretty much thrown into a landfill ages ago.

    I guess people feel the need to be offended by everything now.
