A 5-year-old girl was suspended from school earlier this week after she made what the school called a "terrorist threat."The wonderful thing about zero-tolerance policies is that they relieve school administrators of the responsibility for exercising any kind of personal judgment at all. Kind of makes you question why you even need these lumpen-bureaucrats.
Her weapon of choice? A small, Hello Kitty automatic bubble blower.
The kindergartner, who attends Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Pennsylvania, caught administrators' attention after suggesting she and a classmate should shoot each other with bubbles.
Welcome to Mt. Carmel Elementary School - and please observe that it's a "wisdom-free zone".
