Third graders suspended for tiny action figure toy guns

I always enjoy it when people do stupid stuff in my fiancee's hometown:

Spokane, WA — Three third-grade boys who brought tiny action figure toy guns to school received one-day suspensions for violating the Spokane School District's zero-tolerance weapons policy.

District officials said the suspensions Tuesday also were given because the 2-inch-long GI Joe toys violated a policy against bringing toys to school.

"They don't need toys during the school day. If kids are playing with toys, they are not attending to school," Bemiss Elementary School Principal Lorna Spear said.
