School suspends 7-year-old for shaping strawberry pastry into ‘shape of a gun’

DailyMail: A seven-year-old boy was suspended from  school on Thursday after biting his breakfast pastry into a shape that his teacher thought looked like a gun.
Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park  Elementary School in Baltimore, said he was trying to nibble his strawberry snack into a mountain. But when his teacher saw what he had done, the boy says she got ‘pretty mad’ and he knew he was ‘in big trouble.’ Josh was suspended for two days.
Josh’s dad was called by the school and  informed that his son had been suspended for two days. The school sent home a letter with every student informing parents that: ‘A student used food to make an inappropriate gesture.
Josh, who suffers from attention deficit  hyperactivity disorder and enjoys art classes, told Fox  45 that his actions were innocent. ‘It was already a rectangle and I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top and it kinda looked like a gun but it wasn’t. ‘All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun kinda,’ the seven-year-old recalled.
The boy’s dad found the incident ridiculous.  ‘I would almost call it insanity. I mean with all the potential issues that  could be dealt with at school, real threats, bullies, whatever the real issue  is, it’s a pastry.., Ya know?’ he said.
The school refused to comment due to privacy issues. The boy’s father said the school claimed Josh had said ‘Bang! Bang!’ while holding the pastry, according to Fox News. Josh denies that his food art was ever meant to be a gun.
I would call it insanity. Reason ∞ to home school.

  1. The teachers in this country have gone bonkers just like our government. This is ridiculous. You’re right home schooling is the answer, until the guv’mint outlaws that.

     
  2. All the father had to say was it was the shape of a penis, sorry for the confusion. From offensive to hero.

     
  3. Also, that kid looks like a hardened criminal. It’s a good thing that that teacher was on the ball. Who knows? The next day the kid could have chewed his pastry into a “nookular” bomb and laid waste to the whole town. Great work, teach, you headed off a disaster. You’ll probably get a Nobel Peace Prize for your unselfish act. What the hell, if O’Bomba got one so should you.

  5. OMG! …and we have people like this “teaching” our children???

     
    • More like policing thoughts and trying to control behavior.

       
    • “All violence is wrong”… even thoughts of violence… even by accident… so people can be totally dependant upon a nanny state to protect them (when it’s not tyrannizing them). Ever wonder why caring, non-violent left/liberal educators never seem to punish bullies or stop them from hurting folk whom they punish for defending themselves?

       
  6. The Left’s PC has gone past a threshold to become Madness!

     
  7. This is just another expression of the Singularity of the Stoopid that the left has created.

     
  8. The people in charge of Park Elementary School in Baltimore neeed to be drug tested!

     
  9. Since when does a triangle look like a gun . Obviously this so-called artsy-fartsy teacher is not the sharpest knife in the drawer . And also obvious , she must have failed geometry miserably . Kudos to Bart , your response was my 1st thought ! With a little variation .

     
  10. It was my understanding he went looking for bullets earlier that morning but found Home Land Security bought up all the raisins ….2 billion to be exact.

     
  11. Baltimore… liberal hellhole like Chicago or Detroit. Kid was probably on ADHD meds just for being male, too.

     
  12. i think the problem is that we’re seeing pandemic levels of mass galloping paranoia among “educators” at all levels. the obvious cure is a dose of common sense, but those afflicted seem remarkably resistant to that remedy, fiercely rejecting attempts to apply it.

     
  13. The world has gone mad. The school is offering counseling to the students, just in case they were traumatized by the pastry gun!

  14. That is a triangle; it doesn’t particularly look like anything… Maybe with some imagination, this could be another apple lawsuit
