Two Six-Year-Old’s Suspended For Playing “Cops And Robbers”


If you thought “zero tolerance” was bad before, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Maryland is fighting (and winning) a war against pre-teen boys and their imaginations…

TRAPPE (MyEasternShoreMD)— Two 6-year-old students were suspended Thursday from White Marsh Elementary School, according to one boy’s parents, for using their fingers as imaginary guns in what one parent calls a “childish game of cops and robbers in the school yard.”

“This is easily the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard of,” said Army Staff Sgt. Stephen Grafton, the father of one of the first-graders. “This, a completely harmless act of horseplay at recess, was by no means an offense that warranted a suspension. It was a pair of 6-year-olds playing with imaginary pistols, one of whom has a father who is charged by the United States with using firearms in his defense.”

The suspension in Talbot County comes on the heels of another Maryland student, also 6 years old, who was suspended from Roscoe R. Nix Elementary School in Silver Spring. This child was removed from his school for one day for aiming his finger at another student and saying “Pow.” The student’s parents hired an attorney, and the school reversed the suspension decision and removed it from his school record.

As someone who grew-up playing, among other things “smear the queer” and “warball,” it’s a safe bet that I’d be in a re-education gulag somewhere were I to be a child today…
