You can’t make this stuff up.

A 13-year-old girl was suspended for one day from Wamsutta Middle School in Massachussetts because she brought a butter knife to school. She needed the knife to cut the pear packed in her lunch because she wears braces that prevent her from simply biting into the fruit.

Morgan LaPlaume told WXFT-TV that the principal spotted the deadly weapon on the lunch table and hauled her miscreant behind into his office.

“As we were walking to his office I asked him and he said you are not allowed to have knives in school, and I said I was using it to cut my pear, I wasn’t harming any other student, and he said I know, but it’s the policy,” said the deceptively pixie-like Morgan.

As the mothers of hardened criminals often do, Morgan’s mom, Melissa LaPlaume made excuses for her little felon.

“It’s a butter knife, she has braces, there was no intent at all there,” LaPlaume said.

Yet she broke the rules of the school, which presumably does not provide plastic knives with school lunches or at least gets around the rule by providing combination fork-knives, or “knorks.”

This is just the latest in what seems to be a rash of incidents where school officials have had to step in to stop students with murderous intent.

For instance, there was the recent incident where a student on a school bus was thankfully suspended after preventing a football player with a loaded gun from shooting a teammate. If he hadn’t been suspended, who knows what dastardly deeds the student might have moved on to commit — stopping a bank robbery or pulling someone from a burning car, perhaps.

Then there was the 7-year-old who chewed his toaster pastry into the shape of a gun (he said it was a mountain, but the teacher knew better). What a devilish mind to sneak a weapon past school metal detectors like that!

And let us not forget to sing the praises of the school officials who locked down all the schools in a Pennsylvania county because a medical office worker calling a high school student to confirm an appointment heard on the child’s voicemail greeting the phrase “shooting some people outside of the school” and heroically ratted the kid out to local police. The voicemail message actually turned out to be the theme song from “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” and the lyrics actually said “shooting some B-BALL outside of the school,” but let’s not muddy a tale of bravery and quick thinking.

This is a frightening trend across this country. Children with easy access to stuff that paranoid (I might even go out on a limb and suggest “liberal”) adults find scary are rampaging out of control, creating a climate of fear.

Something needs to be done, and it should follow the pattern of gun control efforts, which have historically been so successful.

We need to start making our schools child-free zones. Kids need to be restricted. Not all kids, just certain ones, such as those who talk, chew gum, eat lunch, wear braces, stand up for fellow students, use high-capacity magazines or who just move around too much.

People who don’t want to keep kids out of school to protect other kids just don’t have a heart and must be Nazis. Owning a kid is like owning a gun, and as Dianne Feinstein pointed out, that’s like child pornography, which means all parents are perverts. … Maybe we should just ban people from giving birth.

Of course, the Supreme Court’s about to do that, in all likelihood, with its forthcoming gay marriage decision, which may hinge on the feelings of all the millions of kids with gay parents, if justices’ questions are any guide.
We’ve got to do it to the children — er, for the children.

5 year old Threatened with Suspension for Making a Gun out of Legos
A five-year-old boy has been threatened with suspension after he used Legos to build a toy gun at school.
Video at link...
Joseph Cardosa, attends an a after-school program at Hyannis West Elementary School, on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Teachers gave him a written warning for play-shooting some of his friends with the toy gun.

His parents say they understand that teachers are parents are on edge after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, but argue that school administrators are taking things too far.

Joseph Cardosa, 5, was told he would be suspended for two weeks if he makes a gun at his after school program again

Disciplined: Joseph Cardosa, 5, was told he would be suspended for two weeks if he makes a gun at his after school program again

Joseph's mother Sheila Cruz said the school is over-reacting

Is this a gun: Joseph's mother Sheila Cruz said the school is over-reacting

'Kids are taught, "Here's a squirt gun, this is fun," so this is fun to him... he's running around playing,' Shelia Cruz told Fox 5 Boston.

Ms Cruz said teachers should have spoken with her son an re-directed his playing to a non-violent scenario.

'We were running around and we were shooting... we were jut pretending,' little Joseph said.

Teachers sent Joseph's parents a letter warning that if he play-acted with a toy gun again, he would be suspended for two weeks.

Suspension, Ms Cruz says, is excessive.

'It's not like he's designing a machine gun,' the mother said.

School administrators across the country have heightened sensitivity to any playing that involves simulated violence

Cracking down: School administrators across the country have heightened sensitivity to any playing that involves simulated violence

Teachers disagree.

Principal Kathi Amato said in a statement to Fox 5: 'While someone might think that making a Lego gun is just an action of a 5-year-old, to other 5-year-olds, that might be a scary experience.'

Ms Cruz admits that her son has been reprimanded once before for making a finger gun.

Since the December 14 massacre in Connecticut that killed 20 first graders, school administrators have been very sensitive to child making references to guns or shooting - even during play.

A five-year-old girl in eastern Pennsylvania was suspended after she said she was going to shoot her friends with her Hello Kitty bubble gun.

A fifth grader was suspended after she pulled out a torn piece of paper and said it was a handgun.

Where does the insanity end?
California Elementary School Holds Toy Gun Buyback

An elementary school will hold a toy gun exchange Saturday, offering students a book and a chance to win a bicycle if they turn in their play weapons.

Strobridge Elementary Principal Charles Hill maintains that children who play with toy guns may not take real guns seriously.

“Playing with toys guns, saying ‘I’m going to shoot you,’ desensitizes them, so as they get older, it’s easier for them to use a real gun,” Hill said.

At Saturday’s event, called Strobridge Elementary Safety Day, a Hayward police officer will demonstrate bicycle and gun safety, and the Alameda County Fire Department is sending a rig and crew to talk about fire safety.

Fingerprinting and photographing of children will be offered, with the information put on CDs for parents to use, if needed, in a missing child case. All youngsters attending will be given a ticket to exchange for a book, Hill said.

Every child who brings a toy gun will get a raffle ticket to win one of four bicycles, Hill said.

Hill said he got the idea for the toy gun exchange from a photographer, Horace Gibson, who takes students’ school pictures and who expressed concern about the spate of shootings of young people by police in Oakland.

Hill said police are rightfully fearful of being shot when they encounter so many armed suspects, and there have been cases nationwide where police mistook a toy gun for a real one.

More and more children being arrested for trivial things…
#1 At one public school down in Texas, a 12-year-old girl named Sarah Bustamantes was recently arrested for spraying herself with perfume.
#2 A 13-year-old student at a school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently arrested by police for burping in class.
#3 Another student down in Albuquerque was forced to strip down to his underwear while five adults watched because he had $200 in his pocket. The student was never formally charged with doing anything wrong.
#4 A security guard at one school in California broke the arm of a 16-year-old girl because she left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning up some cake that she had spilled.
#5 One teenage couple down in Houston poured milk on each other during a squabble while they were breaking up. Instead of being sent to see the principal, they were arrested and sent to court.
#6 In early 2010, a 12-year-old girl at a school in Forest Hills, New York was arrested by police and marched out of her school in handcuffs just because she doodled on her desk. “I love my friends Abby and Faith” was what she reportedly scribbled on her desk.
#7 A 6-year-old girl down in Florida was handcuffed and sent to a mental facility after throwing temper tantrums at her elementary school.
#8 One student down in Texas was reportedly arrested by police for throwing paper airplanes in class.
#9 A 17-year-old honor student in North Carolina named Ashley Smithwick accidentally took her father’s lunch with her to school. It contained a small paring knife which he would use to slice up apples. So what happened to this standout student when the school discovered this? The school suspended her for the rest of the year and the police charged her with a misdemeanor.
#10 In Allentown, Pennsylvania a 14-year-old girl was tasered in the groin area by a school security officer even though she had put up her hands in the air to surrender.

#13 A police officer in San Mateo, California blasted a 7-year-old special education student in the face with pepper spray because he would not quit climbing on the furniture.
#14 In America today, even 5-year-old children are treated brutally by police. The following is from a recent article that described what happened to one very young student in Stockton, California a while back….
“Earlier this year, a Stockton student was handcuffed with zip ties on his hands and feet, forced to go to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was charged with battery on a police officer. That student was 5 years old”.
#15 At one school in Connecticut, a 17-year-old boy was thrown to the floor and tasered five times because he was yelling at a cafeteria worker.
#16 A teenager in suburban Dallas was forced to take on a part-time job after being ticketed for using foul language in one high school classroom. The original ticket was for $340, but additional fees have raised the total bill to $637.
#17 A few months ago, police were called out when a little girl kissed a little boy during a physical education class at an elementary school down in Florida.
#18 A 6-year-old boy was recently charged with sexual battery for some “inappropriate touching” during a game of tag at one elementary school in the San Francisco area.
#19 In Massachusetts, police were recently sent out to collect an overdue library book from a 5-year-old girl.

The parents of 9-year-old Gage say he has been suspended from school indefinitely after a teacher believes he was pretending a toy was a gun. Gage brought the toy into school at Creative Montessori Academy in Southgate and was showing it to a friend before school hours when a teacher says Gage pointed the gun at his friend and said “bang, bang.”
Add it to the list..

Students Suspended Over Pellet Gun Facebook Photo

Parents have slammed school officials for violating “freedom of speech” as two Massachusetts students were suspended for ten days each after uploading a photo of themselves holding pellet guns to Facebook.
The students, aged 16, from Middleborough were pictured holding the Airsoft guns, toy replicas that fire plastic pellets, while wearing formal dress intended for Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School’s homecoming dance.

The picture was taken at one of their homes, not on school grounds or during school hours.

“We wanted something unique and different instead of using flowers like everyone else. We were like, ‘let’s use something we like to do on the weekend as a prop.’” said Tito Velez, one of the students, adding “Here we are, one photo is getting us almost expelled.”

The school superintendent claimed that the action was taken because it caused a “disruption,” after someone reported the Facebook image to school officials.

“It has nothing to do with free speech. Their behavior caused a significant disruption in the school,” said Superintendent Richard Gross. “We had our homecoming event on Friday and following that the students were looking at Facebook and, of course, it caused a tumult in the building.”

In the same breath, however, Gross cited recent school shootings, noting , “You have Newtown, you have what just recently happened. This happened right on the heels of what happened in the Pacific Northwest.”

The father of Jamie Peirera, the other student pictured, called the action “ridiculous,” adding that “basically it’s a toy gun.”

“It wasn’t done on school property, it was done in the house. It’s nothing to do with school or scaring or whatever it is. This is like making a molehill out of an anthill. I don’t think it’s right at all. Getting a day off or a warning is more than sufficient than going to this extent. That’s my bottom line,” he said.

Peirera also took umbrage at the fact that he was not contacted before the teenagers were called in for questioning by school officials and police.

“When I asked if I could call my mom they said, ‘No,’ and they were doing it for me and then they had a police officer come talk with me,” Jamie Peirera told reporters.

“We were brought into separate rooms and then questioned by a police officer without parental consent there,” Pereira said.

“They took me to an empty room, searched everything I had on me, my bag, my clothes,” Velez said.
