(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A 12-year-old boy from Colorado Springs was suspended from school after a teacher spotted a toy gun during a virtual class. The teacher reportedly witnessed the boy pick up the toy and move it from one side of the room to the other during class.
On August 27, local media reported how Isaiah Elliott of Grand Mountain school moved the toy during an art class, and when the teacher saw it “flash” across the screen, the school principal was informed.
The principal then decided it was appropriate to suspend Isaiah from school and, if that wasn’t enough, chose to call the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.
A child with a toy gun who moved it in his own home was reported to police by his teachers. Just think about that.
Isaiah was reportedly suspended for five days, and the sheriff’s report suggests that the teacher wasn’t “certain” it was a toy gun. The police report said that it was an airsoft toy cunt that had black grips and shot BB pellets. It was also green on one side and emblazoned with the words “Zombie Hunter.”
Sounds like an obviously fake gun, no?
Weirdly, there was an almost identical incident with an 11-year-old boy who attends Bell Middle School in Golden, which is a town to the west of Denver. After finishing a quiz, the young boy started playing with an Airsoft pistol in his bedroom. A teacher didn’t notice at the time but later on, when viewing the recorded class footage noticed the boy “posing with what looked like a toy gun” for a few minutes. It resulted in the boy being suspended from school for four days.
Want to know something even crazier? The sheriff’s deputy wrote for the Elliott case that the “seriousness of the situation” was expressed to the family and that the young boy was told it could “lead to criminal charges in the future.”
“I reiterated the importance of being present and paying attention to his education classes while doing the online learning curriculum,” the deputy added.
A spokeswoman for Widefield School District 3 also defended the Elliot case saying that they “follow board policies and safety protocols consistently.”
