Patrick Timoney, a 9-year-old student at PS 52 in Staten Island, N.Y., was in the school cafeteria Tuesday playing with LEGOs when he was taken to the principalâ€™s office and threatened with suspension. One of his toys was a LEGO policeman that holds a 2-inch plastic gun. The school has a no-tolerance policy when it comes to toy guns.
â€œ[The gun] was so little,â€ the boy told WNBC. â€œI wouldnâ€™t really think that the principal would cause a lot of commotion just for a little gun.â€
More rabid Hoplophobia and absence of common sense. :screwy: :screwy: :screwy:
