Chicago school suspends 11 year old for voluntarily turning in broken toy gun « Hot Air: "Another heartwarming story from the Windy City, where their spiraling gang violence problem and unsafe conditions have led them to a strict “zero tolerance” policy for anything that even resembles a gun. (Of course, this apparently only applies if the person holding it is a licensed, law abiding citizen… or a child.) At Fredrick Funston Elementary School, children are searched when they arrive for classes in the morning. One student remembered at that last moment that he had a toy gun in his pocket from the night before and attempted to turn it in to the security officials conducting the searches. Things went downhill from there."
