Ripped from the Headlines – Aug, 2012
Are you ready for a serious dose of STUPID? I am so outraged by this article. The parents of a 3-year-old little boy who is deaf and relies on sign language to communicate was being told by the Grand Island Public School District in Nebraska, that the sign for his name violates their weapons policy by looking too much like a gun.
I just don’t even know where to begin or who is so paranoid to let this affect a toddler and his family. After an out pouring of support from the community the school district has decided that the toddler did not have to change his name. All this commotion occurred before the crazy paranoia that has swept over the country in relation to guns both real and imaginary.
Thank you ACLU for stepping in and ensuring the school district didn’t violate the protected relationship between parent and child.
I just can’t believe how idiotic some people can be to back pedal and claim they aren’t forcing a name change now.
