    I fully encourage every person who hears this story to send an email to the spokesperson jsheard@gips.org... try to keep it more professional than what I'm going to send them.

    The boy's name is hunter, and he signs his name by making gun-shapes out of both hands, with his index and middle finger crossed. The school says this violates their no-weapons policy.

      I have never heard of anything more ridiculous in my life! I watched the video, and in no way does it resemble a gun. Even if it did, it's his name, not a weapon. I'm wondering if they will now change the policy to include "you can not make a "gun" with your hands.
      The school officials are making themselves look like idiots.

        I know, I"m so unbelievably outraged at this, the people in charge should be fired, scorned, and driven out of town.

        I sure hope bullying a deaf 3-year-old makes them feel like important people.

    School boards can be among the most obtuse and riduculous forms of "government" out there. On par with homeowners' associations for blatant abuse of power by small-minded, misguided, sick and twisted keepers of an imaginary flame.

    What comes to my mind is the head of the school board's name must be Dick.
    I wonder how he is able to "sign" that -- and not be arrested for indecent exposure!
    lol

    Last week we had a principal denying a diploma to the class valedictorian.
    What can they possibly think of next???

      Yeah, they  can be ridiculous.

      My hometown high school a few years back wanted to get rid of all the technology classes. They said that students could still take the home-ec classes, because 'they would still have computers in those rooms'.

      Half the students showed up to the next meeting in protest... sorry, but 'I took a sewing class in high school' doesn't look too good on a resume for a software engineer.
