Middle school student suspended for ‘liking’ photo of toy gun on Instagram

 

[ Note that this boy’s “like” on social media did NOT OCCUR while the student was on school property or while using a school computer, but — tellingly — while the boy was at his own home, away from school, and in the evening…  The fact that the school system is SPYING on children is repulsive and outrageous….  The “principal” of the school made a statement that was full of grammatical errors and fawning political correctness propaganda.  Disgusting! ]

 

TRENTON, OH (FOX19) –

An Edgewood Middle School student was handed a 10-day suspension for “liking” a picture of a [toy] gun on Instagram with the caption “ready.”

The parents of Zachary Bowlin posted a picture of the intended suspension notice which read, “The reason for the intended suspension is as follows: Liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.”

“I was livid, I mean, I’m sitting here thinking ‘you just suspended him for ten days for liking a picture of a gun on a social media site,” father Marty Bowlin said. “He never shared, he never commented, he never made a threatening post… anything on the site, just liked it.”

The picture in question is of an airsoft gun, and according to the students’ parents, their child didn’t comment on the post but simply liked the picture.

“I liked it, scrolling down Instagram at night about 7, 8 o’clock I liked it,” Zacahry said. “The next morning they called me down [to the office] patted me down and checked me for weapons.”
