Students Suspended, Face Expulsion Over Air-Soft Gun Usage On Private Property

Yet it’s extraordinarily difficult to terminate tenured teachers who commit crimes. Where’s the Schoolkids Union when you need them?

(WAVY) A suspended seventh grade Virginia Beach student will find out soon if he is expelled for the rest of the year for shooting an airsoft gun.

Like thousands of others in Hampton Roads, Khalid Caraballo plays with airsoft guns. Caraballo and his friend Aidan were suspended because they shot two other friends who were with them while playing with the guns as they waited for the school bus.

The two seventh graders say they never went to the bus stop; they fired the airsoft guns while on Caraballo’s private property.

Aidan’s father, Tim Clark, told what happened next lacks commons sense. The children were suspended for possession, handling and use of a firearm.

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 law in Virginia Beach is somewhat contradictory regarding whether or not it is illegal to fire an air-soft type gun, but, regardless, the police aren’t bothering with the matter. The school, though, has suspended the boys and they faced an expulsion hearing Monday. At what point did common sense die in this country in favor of hysterical morons?

    it died long ago my friend. Long Ago.

    It died back when playing “Cops and Robbers” or “Cowboys and Indians” died out as being not politically correct.

    Back even before chicken fingers were deemed Weapons of Mass Destruction.

    Probably shortly after prayer and the Pledge were removed.

    But then again Teach, it is not common sense that really died, but the massive infusion of leftist liberal nanny-pants people in to our normal way of life.

    This incident was called in by a busy-body neighbor who over reacted to kids playing around before school. That was reported to the school, and then the school over-reacted and expelled the kids for possession and use of firearms.

    During a hearing Tuesday morning, Aidan Clark and Khalid Caraballo were given long-term suspensions in a unanimous vote. The suspensions will last until June, but a hearing will be held in January to determine if they will be allowed back in school.

    Despite the fact that the 911 (really? 911?) knew that the gun was not real, she called 911 because she felt uncomfortable seeing a “boy pointing a gun”.

    LIBTARDS. When you elect libtards, expect behavior like this folks.

  2. Unfortunately, the Libs are teaching the opposite of common sense since they control the majority of the education system
