Pastry: The New Weapon of Choice

What has happened to the teachers and adults in this country when they react this way: "A seven-year-old boy in Baltimore was recently suspended from school because he was reshaping a breakfast pastry to look like a mountain. Apparently he's a creative kid. Nothing wrong with any of that except for one hair-trigger teacher who thought the reshaped pastry (hang in there with me, I did not make this up and you read that right) looked like the shape of a gun. And if that weren't horrible enough, she claims the child said the words (prepare yourselves) 'Bang. Bang.' At that point, it was all over for this little seven-year-old. Suspended!"
Read the rest of the article, too, to see another example of the increasing lack of common sense.
