Waiting in line for the bus, a Pennsylvania kindergartner tells her pals she's going to shoot them with a Hello Kitty toy that makes soap bubbles.
In Maryland, a 6-year-old boy pretends his fingers are a gun during a playground game of cops and robbers.
In Massachusetts, a 5-year-old boy attending an after-school program makes a gun out of Legos and points it at other students while "simulating the sound of gunfire."
I played "Cowboys and Indians" when I was a kid. I was always the Indian because frankly, the headpiece was the bomb. We played "Cops & Robbers" sometimes using our fingers as a gun. That didn't mean that we had the desire to go rob a bank. They were games. We used our imaginations and could be anything we wanted to.
Political correctness has destroyed our children. It is taking their innocence away with every "zero tolerance" rule put into effect. The kids grow up so fast in today's society, let them be kids while they can. Stop dragging these children into issues they do not have the capacity to understand
Zero tolerance may have started out with good intentions but it warped into something that defies common sense.
