    These zero tolerance laws are fucking stupid.

    Seriously, have some common sense. The kid didn't throw any physical object, just like making a gun with my hand isn't an actual fucking gun. The kid should be allowed back in school and the administrators should be fired for being retarded.

    I used to drew bunch of military jets shooting giant evil robot, which was my bunch of teachers. I even wrote their names on the robot and my friends on the jets. I didn't get suspended and I'm fine today. America's schools are getting worse and paranoid than before.

    Totally gay, can't even play war anymore. We use to fight and pretend stuff all the time if we couldn't get one of the balls from gym to recess.

    Man I loved playing War or Cops and Robbers when I was in grades 2-5.

    I used to have the best Stick ever. It doubled as a rifle and a sword.

    The handle part was curved in a way it could be used as a sword handle or the butt of a rifle.

    Indeed, war games and stuff like that were awesome!

    I dual-wielded two sticks, that started decently thick at the base (wrapped tape around the base of both swords to make handles!), and thinned out towards the front while curving slightly! And then we had massive acorn wars (And special grenades, from using walnuts instead of acorns, acorns were just normal ammo)

    On topic:

    That's just ridiculous, and to the rule that both play and real weapons are banned, I'm not sure how an imaginary grenade would fall under that rule.

    I remember in like grade 4 we were doing a medieval unit and we had to make ourselves a bristleboard/plywood shield and then draw a coat of arms on it.
    After we handed them in and got the shields back me and like 4 friends went and had ourselves a pine cone war. It was in october so all the trees were losing their leaves and we found like 200 pinecones on the sidewalk between our houses (we were like 10 houses apart from each other) and we were there from after school to dark just throwing pine cones at each other and block them with our shields.

    We made a little wall from some wood one of them had in their backyards and we tried to knock it over with just the pine cones by throwing all at once. Can't remember if it worked or not.

    An imaginary grenade is neither. It doesn't even exist outside of this little boy's mind.
    rules are rules. zero tolerance means zero tolerance.

    Fortunately school is one of those areas where "individuality" in dress code should be suppressed. It serves nothing other than to distract students from a study environment and to raise a generation of sluts.

    Umm okay? How my peers or I dressed had no effect on the study environment. Largely the peers had an effect on the study environment.

    Back OT though, sad to see that students are now being punished for the use of their imaginations. The insane games and scenarios my friends and I used to create were identical to ones mentioned throughout this thread, we're no worse off for having played them. Hell, it fostered our imaginations and allowed us to explore our minds.

    And the person who did that was a grown adult.

    Shit if I was younger in public school, I'd go to school pretending to throw an "imaginary" grenade whenever a new game came out or I just didn't feel like going Honestly public school now a day is a joke, I've been teaching my younger brother who's in 7th grade more at home for math then he learns at school and I'm getting him started with coding(things like simple minecraft mods etc.).

    Or, Maybe the kid could just not pretend to throw a grenade or let it be known his imaginary action is intended to play at blowing people up, seriously people complain about stuff like this when a system is doing something, but then have nothing but complaints when it does. I think the punishment was right. The only thing that is over board is our need to project and be so damn violent all the time.

    He's in 2nd grade, there's no logic with a little kid. They act out what they see and hear, so suspending him is the right option when he doesn't no what's going on? Wtf? Seriously some people don't want kids to think for themselves and have an imagination, but rather be robots and do mundane shit all day. Maybe let kids be kids and stop fucking babying them and they'll learn to think for themselves and educate themselves rather then being a follower.

    Wow, how retarded. Funny, I grew up playing cops and robbers, and "war", and cowboys and indians, and all sorts of other games with weapons both imaginary(pointed fingers going "bang!") or play(waterguns and water balloons), as did the kids I grew up with. Fascinatingly, none of us went on to become murderers. Imagine that...or don't, lest ye be suspended.
