Ohio Boy Suspended For Pointing Finger Like Gun

(Columbus, OH) -- A fifth-grader in Columbus, Ohio says he was given a three-day suspension for pointing his finger like a gun. The "Columbus Dispatch" reports the school principal wrote in the suspension letter that the ten-year-old pointed a "lookalike firearm" at another student. The boy says he was "just playing around." A spokesman for the school district says the boy put his finger to the side of another student's head and pretended to shoot "kind of execution style."
