School Suspends, Psychoanalyzes Kindergartner for Wanting to Play With Hello Kitty Bubble Blower
Her weapon of choice? A small, Hello Kitty automatic bubble blower.
The kindergartner, who attends Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Pennsylvania, caught administrators’ attention after suggesting she and a classmate should shoot each other with bubbles.
“I think people know how harmless a bubble is. It doesn’t hurt,” said Robin Ficker, an attorney for the girl’s family. According to Ficker, the girl, whose identity has not been released, didn’t even have the bubble gun toy with her at school.
The kindergartner was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation during her 10-day suspension, which was later reduced to two days. The evaluation deemed the girl normal and not a threat to others, Ficker said.
The suspension comes one month after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, which has created a heightened sense of alert at schools across the country.
Sure, laugh now. But we all know Hello Kitty bubble blowers are a gateway to school shootings.
Today she’s playing bubbles with her Hello Kitty bubble blower. Tomorrow she’s wielding two AR-15s, M1911 strapped to her hip, taking out some classmates for beating her in hopscotch.
It’s a slippery slope, folks. Slippery. Slope.
