Oklahoma First Grader Suspended For ‘Offensive’ Hand Gesture

An Oklahoma boy got in trouble during an assembly at Parkview Elementary when he made a simple hand gesture. No, not that one. The first grader just made the childhood symbol for a gun, pretending he was shooting. This is something we, at least guys, have always done. My kids make the gesture hundreds of times a day — like a nervous tick.

The boy was placed on in-school suspension and threatened with more severe punishment should he repeat the gesture.'

  1. Unfortunately, children copy what they see adults doing at home or in public. So, anything surprising here?

    I saw a video of one child on Youtube swearing and using the f-word, the chikd was about 4 or 5 with tattoos or drawings on his face. I saw another video of a baby girl smoking a joint.

    Where does or from who does an innocent child learn all these things?


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
