A 7-year-old child allegedly shot a Nerf-style toy gun in his Hammonton, N.J., school Jan. 18. No one was hurt, but the 7 year old now faces misdemeanor criminal charges.
School officials alerted cops to investigate the incident which led to the police (with prodding, no doubt, by the school’s zero-tolerance policy by the – cough – administrators) charging the 7-year-old with possession of an imitation “firearm” in school – a misdemeanor and a minor juvenile offense in New Jersey.
I am still wondering just who are the idiots here. i count at least three, maybe four, could be more.
Oh, that “gun”? Something like a Nerf gun, that shoots soft ping pong balls. Oh yeah, real dangerous weapon there. Glad they called the cops. Wonder how many showed up and what their reports looked like.
