One wonders how the minds of these school officials work.
The Daily Item: January 18, 2013, Mount Carmel: A 5-year-old kindergartner who told classmates she was going to shoot them, and then herself, with her pink bubble gun, was grilled for three hours by Mount Carmel school officials without her mother’s knowledge, then suspended, a family attorney said.
The girl was initially kicked out for 10 days in what the school categorized as a “terroristic threat,” according to the kindergartner’s mother and confirmed by the family attorney. That suspension was reduced to two days and labeled as a “threat to harm others.”
It would take a Lewis Carrol or an Edward Lear to do justice to these ombliferous soldiers in the war on terror.
There was a toddler from Mount Carmel,
Who armed with a bubble gun did go;
But she was put to the rack,
And forthwith had to pack,
To be sent off to Guantanamo.
(with apologies to Edward Lear).
