Mass. school threatens to suspend 5-year-old for Lego gun
Playtime in school turned problematic for a 5-year-old Massachusetts boy who made a toy gun out of two Legos.
Joseph Cardosa is part of the after-school program at Hyannis West Elementary School on Cape Cod. His parents received a letter a few days ago that said Joseph had received his first warning for using toys inappropriately, and that upon a second warning, he will be suspended from the program for two weeks. Josephâ€™s parents, Shelia Cruz and Octavio Cardosa, say the school is taking things too far.
â€śItâ€™s not like heâ€™s designing a machine gun,â€ť Mr. Cardosa said....

This principal really has a screw loose for believing that it would be a scary experience to the other 5 year olds just to view a gun made out of Lego blocks.

Really? Here is something scary but of which I'm pretty confident.
This silly principal, who apparently considers a "gun" made of two Lego blocks dangerous, would be one who voted for Obama. The president wants F16s and Abram tanks sent to Egypts radical Muslim Brotherhood. F16s and Abram tanks are offensive weapons. Assault weapons if you will. But this principal is clueless and if he or she were able to see any mental dots, he or she wouldn't be able to connect them.
