Wow. Just, wow. Apparently now it is a crime to “like” a photo of a gun on social media. If that’s the case, the police will be coming for me any minute because I “like” the heck out of gun photos and articles all across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Sue me.
What is the opposite of ‘Gun Fever’? Whatever it is, that’s the liberal idiocracy that is being spread! An Ohio seventh-grader was suspended, yes suspended, for TEN DAYS! Why? Because he simply ‘liked’ a photo of a gun on Instagram…..The only liberal argument I could even fathom against him doing this is that it could mean that he was “violent” (even though thats a very flimsy argument in itself) but here’s the thing, it was an AIRSOFT GUN! My brothers were the same age as him, and possibly even younger, when they got their airsoft guns. What is the problem?
Not only was this unfair to him, but this is now affecting his education. He may be given work to do at home but being out of the classroom for ten days can have extremely negative effects on his grades.
Daily Wire reports:
Zachary Bowlin saw the photo, which was succinctly captioned, “Ready.” He “liked” the photo, prompting Edgewood Middle School to suspend him.
The boy said, “I don’t think I did anything wrong. The] next morning, they called me down and, like, patted me down and checked me for weapons. Then, they told me I was getting expelled or suspended or whatever.”
The school sent a note to Zachary’s parents stating the reason he was suspended was “liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.” His father, Martin Bowlin, snapped, “I was livid. He never shared, he never commented, never made a threatening post … [he] just liked it.” He added, “My wife called and said he’d been pulled in to the office, and he was being suspended because he liked a picture on Instagram that his friend posted of a weapon, of an airsoft gun. It was 10 days suspension with the possibility of expulsion. I’m like, ‘For liking a gun? Did he make a comment or threat or anything?’ And it’s like, ‘No. He just liked a picture.’ I’m like, ‘Well, this can’t happen.’’”
Martin Bowlin also commented, “I mean, I figured he’d cleaned his gun and was ready, wanting to play and stuff. The young man that posted it and my son, and probably four or five other kids, play airsoft in our field. So I pretty much knew what it was about. So I really wasn’t concerned.”
The superintendent of Edgewood City Schools, Russ Fussnecker, informed WXIX, “I assure you that any social media threat will be taken serious, including those who ‘like’ the post when it potentially endangers the health and safety of students or adversely affects the educational process.” He also stated, “When you’re dealing with school districts nowadays and there are pictures of guns, regardless of the kind of gun it is, it’s a gun. And there are certain images or words, I can’t determine if that’s playful or real. And until I can get to an investigation, I have to look into it, those students have to be removed.”
I bet same officials that suspended him will be the EXACT same ones to call his mother to complain that he is behind on school work from where he was suspended for 2 weeks! SMH
