Boy Disciplined For Waving Gun Shaped Pizza At School
If the shape of food in schools can lead to trouble, then lunch ladies may need to eliminate the hot dog!
A 10 year old elementary student was disciplined after he allegedly waved a gun shaped pizza around at fellow students during lunch. Some say he made threats while the young boy claims he just pretended to shoot the pizza slice into the air. Even if he did make threats the only thing that is going to shoot off of a pizza slice is grease!
Nicholas Taylor was forced to each lunch alone at a “silent table” for six days and sent to gun safety after the incident. Taylor’s mother Lynn calls the punishment “absolutely ridiculous” and goes on to say, quote:
“The kid across the table from him said it looked like a gun so he picked it up and started shooting it in the air.”
However according to the mother, he was just playing and never threatened anyone. Rutherford County School spokesperson, James Evans disagrees. Evans said, quote:
“He’s being punished because some students reported he was making some threatening hand gestures, that he was shooting other kids at the table and they reported it to a teacher, the student didn’t tell him the truth about it so he got silent lunch for six days.”
Shooting what at other kids? A pizza slice. For more on the story check out the video below.
