Airsoft gun ‘like’ on social media gets Ohio student suspended

May 9, 2017

An Ohio middle school student was suspended last week after he “liked” another student’s Instagram photo showing an airsoft pellet gun and the caption, “Ready.”

The parents of Zachary Bowlin, a student at Edgewood Middle School, received the 10-day suspension notice Thursday, which accused Zachary of “liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence,” a local Fox affiliate reported.

“I was livid,” father Marty Bowlin told the station. “He never shared, he never commented, never made a threatening post, anything on the site — just liked it.”

Mr. Bowlin said Zachary and his friends like to play with airsoft guns often.

    USA is utterly flooded with criminal illegal invaders and nothing, nobody cares. Heck, but the Law has to be “enforced upon” an unsuspecting student by a very
    stupid teacher “dutifully following the rules”……..

    Now if this had been a picture of a muslim beheading someone I’m sure nothing would have been said at all! But they only use knives and swords and not shaped like a gun! Our SCHOOLS MUST BE CLEANED OUT, FAST!

    Fire the officials for discrimination or for just being idiots.

    Apparently those at Edgewood Middle School are too stupid to understand the Second Amendment. Why are they being trusted with teaching students? The administration at Edgewood needs to be suspended.

    I realize we’re only talking middle school here, but don’t laws apply to students also? I mean here in the US doesn’t someone have to be guilty of actually breaking a law in order to be punished?
    To punish someone who has done absolutely nothing wrong seem just so wrong. Simply “liking” a picture of what was obviously an airsoft gun is in no way an example of breaking the law.
    In fact the only possible law broken here that I see is an over overzealous, out of control liberal school official who doles out punishment when there is no crime.

      If you’re liberal you’re innocent until proven guilty, If you’re conservative you’re guilty until proven innocent! Its the ultimate hypocrisy! Besides how stupid to target a middle schooler over something like this!

      You have to begin shaming the gun-toting, bible-reading, God-fearing Americans that obama hated while they are in middle school in order help them grow up politically correct and toothless. Fight the good fight, Mom and Dad; see that justice is obtained for your son. I wonder when nail guns will be outlawed? How about glue guns? Insane.

        Gun shaped toast? Pointing a finger and saying ‘bang?’ Being deaf with the last name Hunter?
