School Will Not Back Down Over Five-Year-Old Girl’s Bubble Gun “Terroristic Threat”
Attorney accuses district officials of “stonewalling”
Jan 23, 2013
A school that suspended a five-year-old girl for “threatening” class mates with a Hello Kitty bubble gun will not back down on the issue, refusing to retract a statement describing the girl’s actions as “terroristic”.
As we reported last week, the incident occurred on January 10th, when the girl, whose identity is being protected, declared she was going to shoot other children, and then herself with a pink toy gun that fires bubbles composed of a harmless soap solution.
School officials reportedly categorized the incident as a “terroristic threat,” and labeled the girl’s actions a “threat to harm others.”
