It’s been three years since a little boy took bites out of his Pop Tart to make it look like a gun. Harmless, right? Wrong! When seven-year-old Josh Welch showed it to his teacher, he received a two day suspension. It seems that taking four bites out of a Pop Tart is disruptive behavior. And believe it or not, that little suspension goes on Josh’s permanent record.
Josh’s parents have been fighting the suspension in court for the past three years. In a decision by an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court judge, Josh was disruptive and the suspension stands. Josh’s parents will be taking the case to a Court of Special Appeals. Aren’t we just a little too paranoid? I can’t think of any mass shootings involving Pop Tart weapons, can you?
Chicks on the Right reports:
Three years ago, a 7-year-old boy in Maryland was suspended from Park Elementary School after chewing his Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun. I’m guessing he went “pew pew” or something too.
A psychopath in the making, clearly.
His parents appealed the two day suspension. Now it’s three years later, and we have an answer. An Anne Arundel County circuit court judge determined the boy was being disruptive and upheld the suspension.
Yeah. I’m sure that’s the reason. What about the kids who turn their bagels into planes at breakfast? Are they equally as disruptive too?
