Adventures in Zero Tolerance: Boy expelled for using airsoft gun in his own front yard [Darleen Click]

That it is a toy makes no difference, as the woman who called 911 said, seeing a boy point a gun makes people “uncomfortable”.

A seventh grade Virginia Beach student previously suspended for shooting an airsoft gun has been expelled, has learned.

During a hearing Tuesday morning, Aidan Clark was expelled in a unanimous vote. The fate of Khalid Caraballo remains unknown at this time. […]

Khalid’s mother, Solangel Caraballo, thinks it is ridiculous the Virginia Beach City Public School System suspended her 13-year-old son and Aidan because they were firing a spring-driven airsoft gun on the Caraballo’s posted private property. “My son is my private property. He does not become the school’s property until he goes to the bus stop, gets on the bus, and goes to school.”

The bus stop in question is 70 yards from the Caraballo’s front yard. […]

A neighbor saw Khalid shooting the airsoft gun in his front yard. She told the dispatcher, “He is pointing the gun, and it looks like there’s a target in a tree in his front yard”. located the 911 caller and spoke to her. She confirmed Khalid was taking target practice using a zombie hunter airsoft gun to kill the zombies. There was also a net behind the target to catch the plastic pellets.

The caller also knew the gun wasn’t real and said so, “This is not a real one, but it makes people uncomfortable. I know that it makes me (uncomfortable), as a mom, to see a boy pointing a gun,” she told the 911 dispatcher. […]

Khalid said he will never do this again. “It’s terrible. I won’t get the chance to go to a good college. It’s on your school record. The school said I had possession of a firearm. They aren’t going to ask me any questions. They are going to think it was a real gun, and I was trying to hurt someone. They will say ‘oh, we can’t accept you.’ ”

If the gun-grabbers can’t gut the 2nd amendment head-on, they’ll use whatever tools they can grab to demonize children with pop-tarts, pointy fingers, drawings or the private play of toy guns. And what better threat than one’s permanent school record.

  1. As disturbing as the blatant attempts at indoctrination of the “guns bad” meme are, what’s worse is that a public school district believes it has the right to regulate what happens off school premises in the student’s own home. This is yet another attempt to eliminate parental authority and transfer “ownership” of children to the state.

  2. And those Fascists go rolling along…

  3. This is outrageous! Why on earth would a neighbor all 911 over a toy gun? Why on earth would the school get involved with a legal activity done on the student’s property? What the hell happened to this country?

  4. The Commiecrats at work.

  5. Hmmm, he looks vaguely like the merely potential son of someone well-known . . . but for the intervention of an unfortunate brain-lesion, I just can’t seem to remember who.

  6. Gladys Kravitz ought to be cited for calling 911 over something she knew and said herself wasn’t a real gun.

  7. – Can’t wait until “baggers” actually do announce open season on Progtards.

  8. couple zombies trundle down the street bitch Gladys’ll be singing a different tune right quick

  10. – “Heh, yes-sir-ree Jake, Ahm agonna bag me some Progtard critters this season.”

  11. Public shaming is key to correcting these damaging societal behaviors. Notice how well shame, stigma and disgrace keep welfare usage down, and sexual deviancy, divorce, and unwed pregnancies at very low levels?

    Wait…oh, those stigmas are all but gone, aren’t they? So, what’s keeping our society from becoming a vulgar cesspool comprised of humans who are but animals and proud of it ?

  12. What indeed serr8d? Any ideas? Something to do with pride itself, maybe?

  13. So, what’s keeping our society from becoming a vulgar cesspool comprised of humans who are but animals and proud of it ?

    That ship has sailed, my friend. Your family and friends might retain the trappings of civilization, but American society as a whole is pretty much down the drain.

  14. Aidan’s mom should march over to the bitch’s house, armed with a coffee cake as a diversion. She can then engage in chit-chat about how all of the neighbors have expressed concern and tut-tuts about all of the liquor bottles in Mrs. Kravitz’ trash. Aidan’s mom could sigh and say innocently, “I’m not a busybody, but, well Gladys, and I say this out of concern for the children . . . ” and proceed to state the case that compelled her to call CPS the other day after she saw Gladys (“bless your heart”) driving erratically while the kids were out playing.

    Two can play at this.

  15. listening to the bitch’s 911 call is really really disheartening

    “Please have someone contact me please to let me know what was done or if somebody just talked to his parents…”

    she should be fined for misuse of 911 cause this wasn’t an emergency was it?

    nope. No it wasn’t.

  17. The world’s gone mad……’s wasn’t a real freakin’ gun! Wow…just wow. But leigh, you’re onto something there with your suggestion.

  18. Two can play at this.

    I like this.

    Let’s start shadowing that shrill harridan until she has to take out a restraining order on all of us. If they want to go Alinsky on us, then let’s see how they like it when we push back twice as hard. Any time the music is too loud? Complain to the cops. Any time she leaves the driveway? Report her erratic driving. Raised voices coming through the window? Call CPS.

    Hell, let’s start the ball rolling by calling our favorite paragons of racial virtue to hold a press conference stating that the stuck-up white woman never would have called 911 except that the young man was black, and she couldn’t handle the idea of an armed black man. Get Spike Lee to bring in a film crew!

    Sauce for the goose, baby!

  19. I’ve had neighbor’s like Mrs. Kravitz, Squid. The only way to handle them is to be reasonable as hell while threatening their base of operations.

  20. My tactic was to commiserate with the poor cops who kept having to respond to the BS complaints. Create a track record and get them on your side.

    Then and only then speak directly to the problem, calmly, seriously, and firmly. If she makes another call because you “intimidated” her, the cops will respond of course — but they won’t take her any more seriously.

  21. All of which leaves out the fact she did misuse 911 and should be penalized for it.

  22. An interesting reflection, via Insty.

  23. Tar. Feathers.

  24. Uh…tar paint, once the tar and feathers are worn/solvented off.

  25. I think a forehead tattoo might actually be warranted, here.

  26. When society at large begins to resemble a prison, no one should be surprised that prison-like phenomena begin to appear in society at large. I mean, if you heard one day that Lois Lerner has been found mysteriously shiv’d on a city street, will we be surprised?

  27. Only that it took so long and that she wasn’t run down by car first.

  28. she died like a dog in the streets

    it was cause of what she did at the IRS on all them people

    folks here don’t take too kindly to fascists but still we was all pretty shocked

  29. – Sometimes the bullshit just doesn’t fly.

    – My only complaint is how long it took for the church to finally act. It only encourages the fucking Progtard bitches when that happens. Personally I think that she, and any others in the Dem party like her, should have been excommunicated right from the git-go the first time they expoused their Progressive positions. No mercy for willful sinners.

  30. No mercy for willful sinners.

    I disagree. The willful sinner should be encouraged to mend his ways and return to the fold. Only after the most patient shepherd has lost hope should the sinner be separated from the means of salvation.

    I do not blame the Church for exercising restraint for so long. It is a very grave matter. Besides, 30 years is just the blink of an eye, where the Vatican is concerned.

  31. The willful sinner should be encouraged to mend his ways and return to the fold

    At which point he is no longer a willful sinner.
