A stick figure with a gun earned second-grader Kyle Walker, 7, a one day school suspension this week in Dennis Township, New Jersey. He was cited for violating the school districts zero-tolerance policy on guns, according to his mother, Shirley McDevitt. Kyle had apparently showed the drawing to another child on the school-bus. That child went home and talked about it with his parents, who in turn complained to school officials.
A photocopy of the drawing reportedly showed two stick-figures, one of whom was pointing a crude looking gun at the other. The boy had also written what appeared to be the word “me” above the stick figure with the gun, and another name was scribbled above the other figure in the picture.
