PostSubject: Second grader suspended from school for 'saving the world'   Wed Feb 06, 2013 3:48 pm

A 7-year-old Colorado boy has been suspended for pretending to throw an imaginary grenade, even though the child claims he was just trying to save the world from evil.

Second grader Alex Evans was spending last Friday’s recess on the school playground when he threw a pretend grenade at an imaginary box that he said had something evil inside it. The boy imagined saving the earth this way, by killing the “evil forces” that the imaginary box contained. When the made-up grenade detonated inside the box, Evans pretended that it exploded.

But even though the boy was just letting his imagination run wild, administrators at the Mary Blair Elementary School in Loveland, Colo., suspended him for breaking a school rule: “No weapons, real or play.”

Even the school principal seemed to understand the fictitious nature of the boy’s imagination – indicating that there is nothing more serious to the story – he proceeded to send the boy home.

“He threw the pretend grenade at an imaginary box that had something evil inside,” read the principal’s account of the story.

“I pretended the box, there’s something shaking in it, and I go pshhh,” the boy told Fox 31 Denver.

When the boy’s mother, Mandie Watkins, received the call about her son’s suspension, she disagreed with the administration’s actions and both her and her son expressed confusion about the ordeal.

“He is very confused. I’m confused as well, so it makes it hard for me to enforce these rules when I don’t even understand them,” she said.

“Honestly I don’t think the rule is very realistic for kids this age,” she added, explaining that punishing kids for trying to save the world will just cause further bewilderment.
