High School Student Suspended For Having A Picture Of A Gun On His Laptop

Via The Daily Caller:

Yet another student has been suspended for having something that represents a gun, but isn’t actually anything like a real gun.

This time, Daniel McClaine, Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School in Tan Valley, Arizona, made the mistake of setting a picture of a gun as the desktop background on his school-issued computer.

The picture shows an AK-47 lying on a flag, reports KNXV-TV. The gun isn’t his, McClaine assured the ABC affiliate in Phoenix. He found it on the Internet and liked it, partly because he is interested in serving in the military after graduation.

A teacher reportedly ratted McClaine out after noticing the Soviet-era rifle on the computer. McClaine originally received a three-day suspension.

    In an era of insanity wherein the Associated Press is so biased as to change ‘shotgun’ to ‘assault rifle’ in a news report -- what else can we expect.

    When several first grade kids are expelled from school in the Peoples Republic of Maryland, for pointing their fingers and shouting ‘Bang’ while playing cops and robbers — what else can we expect.
    (Good news was – They didn’t shout ‘Bang Bang’ or they might have been charged with having automatic weapons…)

    Thought control. The student was suspended because of his “wrong thinking”, admitted by the school’s administration.

    1984 anyone?
