The title is a “grabber” but it is also accurate. Here is Simon Black’s report:
Last week in the Land of the Free, a five-year-old girl in Pennsylvania was labeled a terrorist threat.
Fortunately for the citizens of Northumberland County, local authorities managed to detain this nefarious kindergartener before she could exact her villainous deeds on thousands of innocents.
Authorities were tipped off after someone overheard a conversation between the girl and one of her classmates in which she mentioned plans to shoot people… with a bubble gun.
Administrators at her local elementary school questioned the girl alone without her parents for 30 minutes. She was then labeled a ‘terrorist threat’ and sentenced to a ten-day suspension.
Most of us probably believe this stupidity is the best we can hope for from government. I certainly do. The problem is not their stupidity which is expected and unavoidable. The problem is that they have the power to exert this stupidity over others.
