WHAT. 5-Year-Old Girl Suspended For Threatening Classmate With Pink ‘Hello Kitty’ Bubble Gun

A Kindergarten student has been suspended for 10 days after threatening to shoot another girl with her pink bubble gun, posing a “terrorist threat” to her central Pennsylvania school.
Her parents have hired a lawyer, who says the little girl “is the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania.” It all started when the child allegedly said she wanted to shoot her classmate, and then herself, with her pink “Hello Kitty” bubble gun. Her mom and dad took on an attorney in part because the kid didn’t even have her bubble gun with her at the time she made the comment.
“This logic, which was not said in malice, came from the mind of this beautiful 5-year-old child who was playing with her friends, whom she hugs every day,” the lawyer told Daily Item. “And this shows how hysterical people who work at schools have become since Sandy Hook…The incident goes on her permanent school record. She has been branded a troubled person. But she was suspended for her words. She had no gun. She had a bubble-making machine.”
Before going back to school, she had to meet with a psychologist, who allegedly decided whether or not she was still a danger to her classmates.
What’s even worse is that the young girl was allegedly told she was going to wind up behind bars, according to her mother:
“All I know, is what my daughter has told me and she said she was told she could go to jail, which is a very traumatic thing for a 5-year-old to live with.”
It’s understandable that schools are still shaken up about last month’s horrific shooting, and kids have to know that shootings of any kind aren’t joking matters, but can we all agree that a 5-year-old probably isn’t a “terrorist threat”?!
