A Nebraska family is fighting tor
their deaf son' s rig ht to continue
using his own name after school
officials told them it was
inappropriate and must be
changed.
Th ) Hunter Spanker Th resews Hunter Spa nger has been told
USES a type assign language his signed name looks too much like a gun by
Signing Exact English (Set) to school " ciaos. (. earn)
communicate and signs his name
by crossing his [nalex finger and mkettle finger and then wagging his
hands.
Drawing upon a policy that forbids "any instrument that looks like a
weapon," Grand Island Public School board officials say that Hunter' s
name looks too much like a gun gesture to be used in school.
It' s a symbol. It' s an actual sign, a registered sign, through Set," said
Spanker' s father, Brian, to KOLN in Grand Island, Nebraska "HE' S deaf,
and his name sign, they say, is a violation of their weapons policy"

I want to go visit this school, not to protest with everyone else, they all have that taken care of.
But I want to see a kid during recess playing cowboys and indians with his friends make a gun gesture with his hands, and then get drop kicked in the face out of ******* no where by a grown man in riot gear, maced while unconscious, and dragged away in a police cruiser to undergo psychiatric evaluation and interrogation to figure out the motive behind the murder plot he was were suggesting on the playground.

"When asked why he made a gun threat toward Abdul on the playground, 6 year old Michael responded through tears, 'is c-cause we were playin' and he w-wa-was a indians'. Leading investigators to suspect a racial motivation, and dispatch officers to search Abdul's home for evidence of terrorism as a precaution. More details soon."

We weren't aloud to hug because of herpes.

This is an actual reason why.

If you mean cold sores (a form of herpes), I could maybe see it (though someone would have to have an outbreak to cause an issue).
If you mean genital herpes, I hope the police were aware that enough students had herpes that this was an issue.

This same thing happened with me about a drawing a drew.   
I drew the Headless Horseman, as I had just watched the episode of Scooby-Doo with the Headless Horseman on it. Literally. That was the reason, so it was essentially a guy with no head on a horse, with a pumpkin head in his hand.   
Got my mam called in because I was drawing "disturbing" artwork.

America, where you can own a gun, but can't imitate a gun with your hands

A small city, within America, which can make it's own rules. Making a gun gesture with your hands isn't a law, just a rule, the kid can break it all he wants. This is what happens when you let liberal douchebags have power. People get so caught up in voting against the other guy, whether it's republican or democrat, they don't actually pay attention for what the candidate they just voted for, wants to do.
