Kansas girl hauled out of school in handcuffs after making “finger gun” with her hands

From NY Post: A 12-year-old Kansas girl was hauled out of school in handcuffs and charged with a felony — for making a finger gun with her hands, according to reports.

The unidentified Overland Park youngster made the gesture during a class discussion last month in which another student asked which classmates she would kill if she could pick five, sources told The Kansas City Star. (Why is this conversation part of any class discussion?)

She shaped her fingers like a gun — something routinely done in kids’ games — as she pointed to four of her classmates, before pointing her hand at herself, the paper said.

The girl and her classmates were initially sent to their principal at Westridge Middle School. But a school resource officer recommended she be arrested and called police, the Star said.

Officers then hauled her out of school in handcuffs, arrested her and charged the child with a felony for threatening, the paper said. She was later released to her mother and is due in court next Tuesday.

“I want to be very clear: The arrest of this student was wholly unrelated to any district policy,” Shawnee Mission School District spokesman Dave Smith told KSHB. “It was a municipal police department decision, and our policies don’t impact police department decisions.”

Court records claim that on Sept. 18 the girl “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities,” the Star said.

The pupil — who could face as much as a year at a juvenile detention center — is now living in California, the paper said.

Her grandfather, Jon Cavanaugh, insisted the girl did not have access to real guns and “was just mouthing off.”

“I think that this is something that probably could have been handled in the principal’s office and got completely out of hand,” he told the Star. “I’m really worried about my granddaughter’s future.”

Overland Park police told KSHB that “each case is thoroughly investigated before any arrest is made and a charge filed.”

“Ensuring the safety of everyone in a school, or community, is a top priority and requires constant vigilance,” the force said in a statement.

“I’m really worried about my granddaughter’s future.” I would, too! What prompted the girl to do that? The 12 year old child must have been under a lot of stress. I don’t know that handcuffs and a year in juvenile detection will help the girl, it will for sure bring an indeleble embarrassment but intense psychological and psychiatric assistance will help her in the long run.

You seem as delusional as the lunatics who did this. The real crime was allowing such a violent and anti social discussion in the classroom.

Clearly it is all intended to stigmatize the very thought of a firearm in the minds of our young for the purpose of instilling a life long message of fear and unrealistic danger at the mere sight or presence of a firearm, in effort to completely erase the specter of the true U.S. citizens’ hand, chance, and thought, in subduing government over reach and ultimately, just complete oppression.

What was once just thought of as fun and games is now prosecuted as crime and terror; all brought to us by their numerous continuous staged and/or false flag shootings.

Yet more evidence that the Left are bat-sh*t insane.
What Westridge Middle School should have done is to inform the girl’s parents of her pointing the “finger gun” at herself, which may be indicative of suicidal thoughts.

Yes, absolutely. She was aending a pretty clear message to anyone with an IQ above room temperature. The thought of self-harm had obviously crossed her mind. But instead they arrest her because GUNS BAD. Un effing believable

Old hag redder than red, 82 y.o. Hanoi Jane arrested on steps of US Capitol Building protesting climate change. When is she going to croak like her drunken pot smoking brother?

Homo Shep Smith, gone, no longer at FOX, probably will go to venom infested, CNN and badmouth POTUS. Maybe too many complaints about him. No great loss, bye bye queer!

Class discussion?

Where was the teacher in all this? The bathroom?

Why wasn’t the student that asked the question arrested?

Caught in the culture war and clearly unarmed. This nonsense is nothing but propaganda on steroids. Every normal family should remove their children from the indoctrination camps.
