4-Year-Old Preschool Boy Suspended
for Bringing Shell Casing to School

By Jenn Jacques. March 23rd, 2017

A Collinsville, IL family is learning just how harsh zero tolerance is in today's schools.

Kristy Jackson says her 4-year-old preschool son Hunter is growing up around guns, and sadly, that's having a detrimental impact on his education. Jackson said when she went to pick the boy up at his school, Tuesday, she learned he'd been given a seven-day suspension.

"I was met with a stone-faced teacher who said that my son had a shotgun bullet and I was horrified, thinking 'where could he have got this?'" Jackson said.

Turns out it wasn't a shotgun bullet, it was a .22 casing the boy acquired on an outing with his grandfather, a Caseyville police officer, who is teaching the young boy about hunting and responsible gun use. Jackson said her son didn't tell anyone that he had innocently picked up the casing and put it in his pocket that day.

"He's cried about it and he doesn't understand why his school hates him," said Jackson, whose Facebook post on the incident has gone viral. .......

We have written in the past about absurd zero tolerance at schools but here we see another example that defies belief. Seven day suspension? One has to wonder just how this innocent event can possibly present the slightest threat to the safety of other preschool children. It is this paranoia about anything remotely ''gun'' that continues to show just how some schools have policies that are beyond narrow minded and bigotted. Instead, we should be seeing children taught early about firearms safety and the Bill of Rights.
