The story that follows may be inappropriate for those bothered by graphic brutality.
After a shocking “act of violence”, an 8 year old boy from Florida has been suspended from a school that must be reeling in terror over the sheer magnitude of an event that could have been so much worse.
The deceptively innocent looking little delinquent, Jordan Bennett, ran amok on the playground and terrified witnesses have alleged thatÂ he pointed his finger like a gun and said “pow pow.”
Although Harmony Community School in Osceola County may never be the same peaceful idyll it was before young Jordan’s crime spree, his mother defends him.
His mother, Bonnie Bennett, said she’s worried her son will be labeled as violent with the suspension now on his record.
“He didn’t threaten violence. He didn’t utter words that were inappropriate. He made a sound and used his fingers and that was it,” the boy’s mother said.
The school considered it an act of violence, though the school’s code of conduct does not say anything about prohibiting students from pointing their fingers like a gun and saying “pow pow.”
On the boy’s suspension report, a member of the faculty wrote that Bennett was suspended strictly for “pointing and shooting invisible guns.”
The school district told WFTV that, due to student confidentiality, they cannot comment on individual cases. (source)
According to a spokesperson for the school district, Harmony Community School does have a strict code of conduct “thatÂ prohibits students from playing with invisible guns.”
