5-Year-Old Was Suspended for Playing With a Stick that Looked Like a Weapon at Recess

Do you remember when you were a child, you’d point your finger and pretend it was a gun? My boys would do the same, flicking their thumb as the “gun’s” trigger.

Now I can just imagine a bunch of school children during recess, playing tag and chasing each other around the playground.

Five-year-old Caitlin and her two friends were playing “King and Queen” at her school in Hoke County, North Carolina.

“I was the guard,” Caitlin said.

Do you think she deserved to get in this much trouble?
