    Cool 1st Grader Caught With Squirt Gun Back In School

    District Will Remove Incident From Child's School Record

    POSTED: 9:25 am CDT September 21, 2006


    Squirt Gun Terrorist Tawann Caskey

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Was it an overreaction or a safety precaution?

    Either way, the Kansas City, Mo., School District has overruled local school officials.

    The district overturned a 10-day suspension for a 6-year-old boy who brought a plastic squirt gun to school.

    "They made a good decision. Everything is OK," said Daniella Womack, whose son Tawann Caskey was suspended.

    On Monday, the first grader was suspended for bringing a two-inch plastic squirt toy to school. Womack said a school official told her that the gun was a weapon and that a girl saw it and reported to the teacher that Tawann had a weapon. That caused the school to suspend the child for a mandatory 10 days.

    Since Tawann was suspended on Monday, the first-grader's story has caught the attention of many across the country. Community activists voiced their opinions on the issue.

    "I think we went overboard with the gun-in-school thing. These people should use common sense," activist Mark Porter said.

    The school district stands by its policy -- automatic suspension for bringing any toy to school that looks like a weapon.

    "The code of conduct, as it stands for this school year, will remain," said Phyllis Budesheim of the Kansas City, Mo., School District.

    The boy's mother said that she lost her temporary job because she had to stay home with Tawann. But she said she has found another job and can start working when Tawann goes back to school Thursday.

    The district also said it would remove the class IV offense from Tawann's school record.

    These stupid zero-tolerance policies that the democrats always push for have removed common sense from our schools. Could you imagine if we let the get away with that crap with our country's policy's? I weep for our future. My only hope is I'm dead and buried before this country completely turns to crap.

    When we don't vote or take part in our communities decision making process, the hippies win.

    Jenna? What?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
