From Political Outcast:
The Virginia Beach City Public School district is saying that the students aren’t actually being expelled; they’re being given “long-term suspensions.” Whatever the case, the students won’t be allowed back to school for the rest of this semester and even until June of next year. There will be some hearing in January to decide if these students deserve longer-term suspensions.
These “suspensions” were prompted by an incident a couple weeks ago when a few friends were playing with their airsoft plastic pellet guns in one of the boys’ front yards while they were waiting for the morning bus to come. A “concerned” neighbor called 911, even admitting to the operator that the guns were toys, but that they made her feel “uncomfortable.” Local news media reported that ironically, this concerned neighbor’s own son was among those kids playing in an airsoft gun war. That particular 911 call was made on September 9th.
A second 911 call was made three days later by another concerned neighbor. That time, police notified the kids’ school of their actions, and school officials investigated the incident and unanimously suspended the three boys involved who were playing with the toy guns: Khalid Caraballo, Aidan Clark and a third, unnamed friend. The other three kids involved who were not playing with guns were not suspended. Those suspended were charged with “possession, handling and use of a firearm.” On Tuesday, school officials changed the charge to “possession, handling and use of an airsoft gun.”
But by all accounts, the kids weren’t playing on school property. They weren’t playing with their guns on the school bus. They were in Caraballo’s front yard. So why did the police feel like they had to notify the school? And why did the school feel obligated to get involved with something that should have remained a private matter?

How long before they start suspending students who hunt or whose parents just have firearms? Because if the school can suspend kids playing in their own yards with toy guns what will stop them from expelling a kid who goes hunting with a REAL gun.
There is an entire bucket of fail in this story. This neighbor should be shunned for her busybody interference and deep seeded gun hatred. The school and police should be ashamed of their actions and for any trauma they may have caused these kids.
The victims here, the three kids suspended, should be glad that they get out of the indoctrination camp for at least a year and perhaps can learn from this ordeal about the truth behind the curtain in regards to many public education institutions. That truth being many “teachers” and “schools” are not their to educate but rather indoctrinate.
This is a prime example where the school, through it’s actions is trying to insinuate that guns are somehow inherently bad and that if you have anything to do with them you will be punished.
Let’s hope these kids grow up knowing that it wasn’t they who were wrong, but the over reaching gun hating oligarchy that runs public schools.
