    We had a 3 grader here in the Sacramento area sent home because he had Star Wars underwear on. Apparently last week he was spotted by a teacher "monitoring the bathroom." She saw them and sent him to the office. His parents were called and he was sent home. Sort of creepy to have a female teacher monitoring the boys bathroom, but either way it was ridiculous to send the kid home. The schools excuse was "anything that promotes violence will not be tolerated by the school district."

    My son was sent home 2 years ago for wearing a shirt with a hunters silhouette with a deer on his back and his bow in his hand, the shirt said "Those who Sneak eat." The shirt "violated the schools anti weapons policy" I asked them if they were going to read Julius Caesar in class....the principle asked me to leave to office.

    @SavageMazx Yeah...it's getting crazy like when kids are sent home for wearing shirts with the U.S. flag on it, star wars etc.
    Do you and you son bowhunt? If so, GREAT. My son and I have spent many good days afield bowhunting. Fortunately my son's H.S. principal was a hunter.

    @Medicinebow I grew up in North Eastern Nevada, where every pickup had a gun rack with a rifle in the rear window, when you didn't get in trouble for having a pocket knife, when we made rifle stocks and cross bows in wood shop along with clocks and magazine racks. Hunting and fishing was a way of life. Those were the good old days.

    @SavageMazx I hear you. Fortunately, it's still my way of life. LIfe is at its best when i'm afield with a bow or on a high mountain stream with a fly rod. I enjoy that almost as much as I enjoy being married. My favorite place on Earth is Wyoming...and i've been to a lot of places on this planet. I have the clock my son made me on my fly tying desk !

    @Medicinebow I have traveled all over the west, loved WY. Did two projects in the Tetons. Spent the night in Dubois, Green River, Jackson and just about every other little place there. Really liked Sheridan as well. What I like the most was the people I met in the places I stayed. One of my favorites was watching the sunrise near Hells Half Acre. Being in the wild places of the West really reminds me of what a beautiful nation we live in, and meeting people like those I have shared coffee and whiskey with reminds me of what made thus nation's great.

    PS I spent 6 hours in a white out on Tugwotee pace. That was not as much fun.

    They should have never have 'dispended' him. The kid was just being a kid. Think of all the stuff we did growing up watching the Three Stooges after school every day.

    @PNWest I still to this day laugh out loud at that clip. If she had called him that, he probably would have locked her up and thrown away the key....

    "Buck Russell: I don't think I want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer, or a sillyheart. And I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I'm coming looking for you!
    [of Anita's mole]
    Buck Russell: Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam."

    This is why this world is going to crap...we can't even let the children of this world learn to play without being punished...imagination is replaced with indoctrination.

Another Ring to Bind Them..PS remember there is an educational Drone with your name on it B +}

    This is just out and out liberal stupidity. Man, I thought the right wing had cornered the market on stupidity and now this. I can't even find words to say it any other way. STUPID.

    My friends and I used to play war on the playground all of the time. It was good fun. I'm surprised that this boy has enough imagination to create his own game about saving the world. Better nip that in the bud fast or he might not make a good drone.

    We spend years and money (books, videos, etc.) Cultivating a child's imagination. We want them to be active and imaginative in their play. Then, when kids are bring kids, some idiot pulls a stunt like this. Ridiculous!

    The child was simply using his imagination,what a truly ridiculous decision,and i suppose the people who santion this are "educated" or maybe even experts !!!

    When my son was in fourth grade he grabbed my jacket before school cause his ride was waiting. When he put his hands in the pocket at lunch he found some bullets from my trip to the shooting range. When I was called to the school (my son asked to talk to the principal) I explained and the principal said "well, credit me for SOME common sense." No freaking media, no democrats wanting a kid arrested or suspended...a school official with half a brain. My kid is in med school now. You paranoids will soon be hoping this honors student will be the one operating on your prostate.

    Where would a grade 2 student learn to "play with a grenade". Has anyone interviewed the parents about this? Guns are tools not toys.

    @Knightmare Having grown up with Chuck Jones take on the Cold War (Coyote was the US) I realised it was just silly entertainment and not to be taken seriously.

    The violence instilled in our youth every day by the violence on T.V. and these killing video games are producing children who have no conscience and view killing as a game. There should be steps for children not to bring any pretend weapon to school. They need to be taught the respect for such weapons and with such fear about weapons today it has to start with instruction at home. School is no place for these toys.

    Monstrous and abusive STUPIDITY- but then this is part and parcel why our kids aren't competitive against other nations education-wise. We are obsessed with political correctness rather than a practical curriculum.

    The only message being sent when schools overreact like this is that adults in power are intolerant petty power mongers who don't know a thing about play..unless it's with dolls.
