SUSPENDED for pointing a finger??

A Michigan boy reportedly has been suspended from school for curling his hand into the shape of a gun and pointing it at another student.

Erin Jammer, said her son, Mason, was just playing around when he made the gesture Wednesday, the Grand Rapids Press reported.

"I do think it's harsh for a six-year-old. He's six and he just likes to play. Maybe what you could do is take his recess away. He's only six and he doesn't understand any of this," Erin Jammer said.


Eight year-old Christopher Kissinger from Jonesboro, Arkansas was suspended from school last week for pointing a chicken finger from the school's cafeteria at a teacher and saying "Pow, pow, pow." The boy received a three day suspension.

The Jonesboro School District has a zero tolerance policy against weapons, and the chicken finger apparently violated that policy in this incident.
