Student, 7, Suspended For Tossing Imaginary Grenade Into Box Of Pretend Evil

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Colorado mother said her 7-year-old son should not have been suspended from school for throwing an imaginary grenade into a box of pretend evil.

Mandie Watkins said her son, Alex, a second-grader at Mary Blair Elementary School in Loveland, was suspended from school when he threw the imaginary grenade -- which was not represented by a real, physical object -- into a box while playing a game he called  `rescue the world.`"



Little Alex, in training to be a Superhero, tossed an imaginary grenade into a box of pretend evil, and for trying to save the world he was suspended by his dastardly principal.

It must be emphasized that Alex didn`t throw a rock or any other object to represent the grenade, the grenade was 100% imaginary.

Alex didn`t aim his imaginary grenade in the direction of students or the principal, his sole goal was to destroy a box of pretend evil.

School administrators should have given Alex an imaginary scolding, a pretend suspension, and a very real hug for his noble ambition of trying to save the world from evil.

But I`m sure that if a teacher or a principal hugs a 7-year-old student it violates tons of rules.
