Things like this happen all the time.

Schools have a zero tolerance policy for all of this stuff. It's retarded but that's the policy.

An art teacher noticed Isaiah, who has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, playing with something on the virtual screen and sent Elliott an email at 10:17 a.m. notifying her that Isaiah had been distracted during class by an “assumed toy gun,” Elliott says. Elliott immediately responded, assuring the teacher that it was, in fact, a toy gun and that she would speak with her son about the incident.

Should have stopped there.

Reno is right, this has happened to multiple people lately.

Yeah, I don't see this as having anything to do with race.

I would think with the current mood in this country and if your child were black, this could very well have turned into a disaster.

So calling the cops on white kids is fine, but for black (sorry, Black) kids it's a potential disaster?

Now who's being racist?

"I would think with the current mood in this country and if your child were black, this could very well have turned into a disaster."

Possibly, but it didn't. And that would be a separate issue anyway.

The school should apply these types of actions equally across race. There doesn't seem to be evidence of anything else happening here.

The fact that the school overreacted is another separate issue.

Why are the police being sent for a "health and wellness check" not a social worker?
