Should A 5-Year-Old Be Punished For Asking To Play With A Bubble Gun In Class?
We'll tell you why a 5-year-old girl was forced to undergo a psych evaluation after wanting to shoot a bubble gun with her classmates and what her family wants to do about the situation.Playlist
Have things gone too far? Or do we need to take every threat this seriously? A kindergartener was suspended from school for 10-days because she "threatened" a classmate with a Hello Kitty bubble gun. She didn't have the "weapon" on her, but caught administrators’ attention after suggesting she and a classmate should shoot each other with bubbles.
The school deemed it to be a "terrorist threat." The 5-year-old was forced to undergo a psych evaluation, which found the little girl was normal and not a threat to others. The family is planning to sue to have the incident removed from their girl's record.
What do you think: How seriously should schools take perceived 'threats?' Are we at the point where you can't be too careful - and even a 5-year-old shooting bubbles needs to be suspended?
