Toy Gun Suspension

A 5-year old in Massachusetts was reprimanded and threatened with suspension over a LEGO creation. The young man made a gun out of LEGO pieces that honestly didn’t even resemble one. I understand why this may have upset the teacher, but I don’t quite get the 2 week suspension of a 5-year old. I mean, really dude, it wouldn’t have been easier to talk to him or better yet get his mom to talk to him?
