Boy Suspended for Finger as Gun

Well, this seems a little unnecessary. A school in Ohio suspended a 10-year-old boy for three days because he pointed his fingers in the shape of a gun and directed it at another student. ”I was just playing around,” said Entingh, a fifth-grader at Devonshire Alternative Elementary School. “People play around like this a lot at my school.” The child who had the “gun” was pointed at didn’t even notice it; a teacher did.
