Simply stunning! When it comes to this story it’s another case of authorities being ‘Stuck on Stupid!’ All one can do is shake your head in disbelieve at this outrageous incident that took place in her classroom and elsewhere later that day…there’s no other way to look at the situation!

You have to wonder if those in charge that proceeded to harass this little gal, even have two brain-cells left to rub together that are in any kind of working order whatsoever!

See what you think. – This is via FN:

The School District of Philadelphia is defending its decision to scold and search an elementary school student who pulled out a paper gun in class.

A district spokesman said the school acted swiftly and appropriately when 5th grade student Melody Valentin allegedly told classmates she had a handgun on her, MyFoxPhilly.com reported.

Melody and her mother, Dianna Kelly, deny she ever used the word “handgun.”

According to Kelly, Melody realized she had the paper gun with her and put it on her desk while preparing to throw it away. Melody’s grandfather, a marine specializing in firearms reportedly gave it to her the day before.

A classmate spotted the piece of paper and contacted administrators.

“He yelled at me and said I shouldn’t have brought the gun to school and I kept telling him it was a paper gun but he wouldn’t listen,” Melody told MyFoxPhilly.com.

Fernando Gallard, a school district spokesman told MyFoxPhilly.com the district acted within its guidelines in responding to the situation, and cited another case where a handgun was recently found in a backpack in another school.

Kelly has kept Melody out of school to avoid harassment and said she will now have her home schooled.

So friends, what do you think about Melody and her dangerous paper gun? Heck, she’s right in there with the dangerous Bubble-Gun Girl that’s on a ‘terrorist watch list‘ don’t ya know!

Don’t know about all of you…but I, for one, am glad her mom’s going to home school her. – Our schools and those in charge in many instances seem to be the real terrorist threat to some of their students…especially the very young that they’ve been preying on themselves!

Leave the kids alone…let kids be kids!

  2. You can get a paper cut from a paper gun, very dangerous. BAN paper guns!

  3. Any parent that sends their children to this school are stuck on stupid or just looking for a babysitter. With this type of policy the kids are not learning anything productive. Parents should all make paper guns and go in a throw them at the principal. Asinine
    people!

    Earlier today I was thinking about something and that is whether teachers are finding students harder and harder to teach these days.

    Then, I see this post and realize that their jobs are not only tough, but impossible, when truly idiotic things like having to discipline a student for an l-shaped piece of paper occur.

    While I have no sympathy for asinine guidelines in our education system, I might have some for any teachers who went into their line of work dreaming of bright faces and bright minds. It’s sad that the dream is dead and gone.

    Perhaps the next time a young person thinks of being a teacher they should imagine themselves as parents (if they are not already), and prepare to home school their children. To me, there are few more noble things to do than to pull that double duty. And in today’s climate, it might make those acts downright heroic.

    • Heroic indeed. Sad thing about all that is many of the parents these days have to work and wouldn’t have the time to home-school. Isn’t it grand what our society has devolved into?

      Btw gal…did you happen to get the two suggestions about your ad problems here yesterday on the Victory thread?

    Yes, and my laptop wants to block the downloads so I’m going to keep working with it until I find something safe. Meanwhile, I’m endure. 😉

    And yes, home schooling is not possible for many parents these days but private school is worth giving up a car for if at all possible, in my opinion. It’s easy for me to spout my opinion because I lack children but it’s atrocious what’s going on in public schools these days. It used to be simply the lesson plans, revisionist history, and general indoctrination. Now, it’s things like threatening students for saying they’ll blow bubbles or crumble up a piece of paper.

    • Totally agree with you here…the federal govt. and the teachers unions that are now in our public school system and have been for decades now… have completely destroyed something that once worked just fine…thank you very much. – Sad day in America.

      Btw…since you use a laptop I know nothing about them, but that seems weird you can’t download and install adblocker, heck…that’s been around a long time now. I used for IE and now FF…no problems, but it sure as heck solves the ad problems everywhere.

      I did the google ad blocker and installed and all my problems are over.

    It’s a good thing that they are able to home school instead of having to leave their child in a PC indoctrination center/loony bin. Here’s a home schooled kid…

    If you’re a sports fan, you’ve probably heard of football quarterback Tim Tebow. Besides being an outspoken Christian athlete, Tebow is a homeschool graduate. Although he did not attend public school classes, he played on the Nease High School football team which won the 2005 State Championship. In his freshman year at college, Tim joined the Florida Gators, the team that won the National Championship in 2006. As the starting quarterback, Tim has been leading the Gators to victories ever since. On January 11, 2009, Tebow announced that he would return for his senior season at the University of Florida rather than making himself eligible for the NFL draft.

    Tim grew up in a close but competitive family and athletics have always been a big part of his life. At five years old, he was begging to play organized sports. Like his other siblings, he was homeschooled until college. Fortunately for him, in 1996 legislation was passed in Florida allowing homeschooled students to compete in local high school sporting events. This Florida law allowed Tim to play baseball, basketball, and football, and he received numerous county and state awards for each sport.

    Tim’s parents, Pam and Bob Tebow, have been called “homeschool pioneers” because they began homeschooling in 1982 before this form of education became popular.

    In addition to family values and character training, the Tebows focused on each child’s individual learning styles, interests, and goals. All five of the Tebow children went on to receive college scholarships.

    The Tim Tebow Bill

    Football season may be over for now, but Tebow is still in the news with an Alabama Senate bill named after him. Senate Bill 305, a.k.a. the “Tim Tebow Bill,” would allow homeschooled students to participate in public and non-public school athletics. Kentucky and Arkansas also have Tim Tebow bills in the works. Similar legislation is currently being proposed in the states of Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

    • Snake…

      I knew about Tebow being home-schooled. What I hadn’t heard about was this bill….what a great idea! Hope it spreads from state to state across this nation. Sure as heck looks like it’s on it’s way to doing just that!

      Good news indeed. ~

    It never ends with these people. The last statement in this definition certainly applies to this situation:

    Liberal – Used to mean : “Free from narrow prejudice; open minded, especially, open to the reception of new ideas or proposals of reform.”. Now means “Full of hatred for past Ideas, and completely intolerant of the people that still believe in them. Socialist.” Most liberal arguments basically boil down to “Shut up in the name of open-mindedness and free speech!”. The liberal observes evils in society, and then attempts to remedy the problem with an even greater evil.

  13. Both comical and pathetic…

    Professor Walter Williams treated this in his latest syndicated column, “Dishonest Educators.” He introduces the topic by talking about the fairly recent cheating scandals in places such as Atlanta, Philadelphia, Houston, New York, Detroit, and other large cities (in areas that, not coincidentally, also have high rates of vote fraud and other criminality). These are shocking instances in which teachers would commit transgressions such as reading answers aloud in class during the National Assessment of Educational Progress test. How did they justify this? Well, Williams quotes one teacher who told a fellow “educator,” “I had to give your kids, or your students, the answers because they’re dumb as hell.”

    I may have missed it but I didn’t see pink bubble guns nor paper guns on Whinestein’s list of banned guns. Surely if these weapons are so dangerous that we have to traumatize six year old girls because of them’ they should be banned.

    I’m not a parent but if I was, I would do anything to keep my children out of public indoctrination centers.

  16. Speaking of firearms, looks like Douche Bag Harry™ is on the horns of a dilemma…

    Democrats may stand in Obama’s way on gun measures

    At issue are Obama’s proposals to ban assault weapons, limit ammunition magazines, crack down on trafficking and require universal background checks. Leading the charge against those ideas is the National Rifle Association. The group wields enormous power to rally public sentiment and is a particular threat to Democrats in pro-gun states who face re-election.

    The political concerns of Democrats create problems for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who has his own history with the NRA.

    The powerful gun lobby endorsed him in previous elections, but stayed neutral in his most recent race, in 2010. Even before Obama announced the gun proposals this month, Reid told a Nevada PBS station that an assault weapons ban would have a hard time getting through Congress. That comment irked Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., author of such a ban.

    “Clearly it wasn’t helpful,” she said this past week in reintroducing her measure. But Feinstein’s original assault weapons ban was a stern political lesson for Reid and other Democrats. Its passage as part of President Bill Clinton’s crime bill in 1994 was blamed for Democratic election losses that year after the NRA campaigned against lawmakers who supported the legislation. When the assault weapons ban came up for renewal in 2004, Congress, under pressure from the NRA, refused to extend it.

    Reid has pledged action on gun measures. “This is an issue we’re not going to run from,” he said. But he’s under pressure from all sides.

    All eyes are on these dozen or so Democrats, some of whom face re-election in 2014. That includes Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.

      Dingy Harry ain’t gonna have much to do with this. Too many dems up for reelection…including our insidious POS from MT, Baucus. – We will never get rid of that phony liberl bastid…ever!

But I do know that unless there is SWIFT and SERIOUS reform in our educational system, that there is no way in heck they’ll be going to public school. No way, no how!
