Political correctness has spun out of control once again, claiming it’s newest victim — an innocent 5-year-old girl.
ABC 11 reports:
A local mother is outraged after her 5-year-old daughter was suspended from school because of a stick that resembled a gun.
It started Friday when her mother got a call from the principal about a playground incident. Caitlin explained that she and her two friends were using their imaginations, playing “King and Queen.”
In this case, Caitlin was the guard protecting the royals and picked up the gun to imitate shooting an intruder into the kingdom.
Hoke County Schools said Caitlin posed a threat to other students when she made a shooting motion, thus violating policy 4331.
Caitlin Miller, 5, was suspended from kindergarten for playing with this stick.
“Hoke County Schools will not tolerate assaults, threats or harassment from any student. Any student engaging in such behavior will be removed from the classroom or school environment for as long as is necessary to provide a safe and orderly environment for learning,” the school system says.
Miller says Caitlin was alienated by her friends and teachers as a result of the suspension. She hopes that the school will issue some sort of apology to her daughter.
Here she is her first day after the suspension and her holding up a picture of the “stick gun”:
