Kindergartener interrogated over cap gun until he pees his pants, then suspended 10 days


In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in a school setting, a kindergarten boy has been suspended from school for 10 days because he showed a friend his cowboy-style cap gun on the way to school.

The incident happened on Wednesday morning at about 8:30 a.m. on a school bus in Calvert County, Maryland, reports The Washington Post.

The kindergartener had brought the toy gun because his friend had brought a water gun the previous day. He later told his mother than he “really, really” wanted his friend to see it.The suspended boy had acquired the menacing, plastic, orange-tipped weapon at Frontier Town, a western-themed campground with a water park, mini golf and the like.

School officials at Dowell Elementary School in the town of Lusby proceeded to question the five-year-old for over two hours before finally calling his mother, whom The Post also does not name.

The principal eventually called the boy’s mother at 10:50 a.m. By that time, the five-year-old had wet his pants (which the mother called highly unusual).

The principal told the boy’s mother that the boy had simulated shooting someone on the bus with the offending novelty. However, both the boy and his older sister, a first-grader, say the principal is not telling the truth.

The Post explains that the principal — Jennifer L. Young, according to Dowell Elementary’s website — told the kindergartener’s mother that things would have been even worse had the toy gun been loaded with caps. In that case, the school would have regarded the plaything as an explosive and called the police.


  1. The detention center er, school has a web site... Oh. My. Fucking.Ghod!!!! Check out the commentary about "P.B.I.S." They say a pledge every morning to behave, not the pledge of allegience evidently. If Jennifer Young had done that to MY kid, I would have hung her from the damn flagpole. All I can picture in my mind about this place is a bunch of terrorized little kids in little commie uniforms, chanting Oh Bah Ma, and other commie platitudes. If all the schools in Maryland are like this we are in deep deep trouble.
