The world is crazy, I tell you.
When my son was about 10 he started drawing tanks and fighter jets. Eventually he started rendering them in 3D modeling tools. Now he’s started a college education geared towards become an Industrial Design Engineer. I wonder if he would have pursued that had he been persecuted for his earlier sketches?
(and it doesn’t even look like a freaking gun to me!)
A 13-year-old boy has been suspended for three days by an Arizona public school because he sketched a picture that resembled a gun, something school officials said they “absolutely” believed could pose a threat. According to a report by KPHO-TV in Phoenix, it’s not the type of greeting the Mosteller family expected when they moved from Colorado Springs to Chandler, Ariz., a few weeks ago. “My son is a very good boy,” Paul Mosteller told the television station. “He doesn’t get into trouble. There was nothing on the paper that would signify that it was a threat of any form.” The principal at Payne Junior High School kept the actual drawing, and officials with the Chandler Unified School District declined to release any information about the situation.
