Newtown fall-out: 5-year old girl suspended from kindergarten for Hello Kitty bubble gun


by Clifford F. Thies

Fox News is reporting that a five-year girl has been suspended from kindergarten for threatening another girl with a "Hello Kitty" bubble gun. A lawyer for suspended girl said "It's laughable."

From, "Pennsylvania girl 5 suspended for threatening to shoot girl with pink toy gun"":
A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl who told another girl she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty toy gun that blows soapy bubbles has been suspended from kindergarten.

Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days for issuing a 'terroristic threat.' But her punishment was reduced to two days after her mother met with school officials and had the incident dropped to 'threatening to harm another student,' which apparently carries a lesser punishment.

"It's laughable," Robin Ficker, the girl's attorney told "This is a girl who had no idea about killing or what happened in Connecticut."
Hold on a minute. Hello Kitty may seem like one of those excessively cute things that is soo-o Japanese. But, here in America, there's no telling what other thing one thing will lead to.

The website "Hello Kitty Hell" has been tracking the progress of the overly cute logo, and Hello Kitty guns are only start of it. Being a respectable website, we cannot even mention all the twisted twists to which it has been switched. But thanks to the intervention of the kindergarten authorities, there's no telling what kind of depravity an innocent little girl has been saved from.
