    Unbelievable!! This is just wrong, wrong, wrong!


    Morales said her son was inspired to honor the military after striking up a friendship last summer with a neighbor in the Army.

    Banning the hat "sent the wrong message to the kids, because it wasn't in any way to cause any harm to anyone," she said. "You're talking about Army men. This wasn't about guns."
    AGREED! Go Mom!

    looks like they are altering policy

    And Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio,former head of the Rhode Island National Guard
    presented the kid with a medal,and told him he did nothing wrong.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100619/...rmy_hat_banned

    COVENTRY, R.I. – The superintendent of a Rhode Island school district that banned a second-grader's homemade hat because it displayed toy soldiers with tiny guns said Saturday he will work to change the policy to allow such apparel.
    Ken Di Pietro said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that the no-weapons policy shouldn't limit student expression, especially when students are depicting "tools of a profession or service," such as the military or police.
    "The event exposed how a policy meant to ensure safe environments for students can become restrictive and can present an image counter to the work of our schools to promote patriotism and democracy," Di Pietro said.
    David Morales, an 8-year-old student at Tiogue School, made the hat after choosing a patriotic theme for a school project last week. He glued plastic Army figures to a camouflage baseball cap. But school officials banned the hat, saying the guns carried by the Army figures violated school policy.
    The decision prompted criticism of the school and support for Morales. On Friday, the boy received a medal from Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio, the retired head of the Rhode Island National Guard. Centracchio said Morales should be thanked for recognizing veterans and soldiers.
    "You did nothing wrong, and you did an outstanding job," Centracchio told the boy.
    Di Pietro said Centracchio met with school officials and asked them to change the policy, and Di Pietro agreed to work with the school committee on a revision. Di Pietro said the incident obscured the district's strong support for the military.
    He noted that Coventry schools sponsor one of only two Air Force Junior ROTC programs in the state.
    "Coventry Public Schools has a long history of support for the military and for instilling patriotism in students," he said.

    It's worse that zero intelligence, it negates intellect that people attempt to use regarding said issue. I read a post not long ago here where someone brought up how asinine the concept of "zero tolerance" is regarding cases like this, and how another equally stupid phrase is sometimes used to attempt it's justification. that would be:

    "We need too err on the side of caution"

    As if making a mistake (too err) on purpose is even possible. A mistake is not intentional. Acting with caution should imply that you've gone through extra effort to ensure no mistakes are made, let alone intentional ones.It's no surprise that the same incompetent dip$hits use these phrases in conjunction with one another. When there were a rash of highly publicized school shootings the knee jerk leftist reaction was to adopt a "zero tolerance" policy. As if the occasional shootings beforehand were tolerated, but now we need to be so intolerant that even the sight of a miniature plastic replica of a weapon should have punitive ramifications is almost as absurd as the idea that you can make a mistake on purpose.

    This is liberal logic illustrated my friends, when we had tolerance for weapons, school shootings were very rare. Somehow we've gotten away from that and developed a tolerance for things that should pi$$ us off.
