In Loveland, Colorado Alex Evans, a 2nd grade boy, was suspended from Mary Blair Elementary School for throwing a fake grenade while playing by himself during recess. In a game he called ‘Rescue the World’, the 7-year-old stated that he was pretending to be a super hero while he was saving everyone else from the end of the world. Well unfortunately for Alex, having an imagination is against school policy. A fake grenade breaks one of the schools ‘absolutes’ — ‘no fighting, real or imaginary; no weapons, real or imaginary’ according to school rules.
Alex couldn’t believe his luck : “I was trying to save people and I just can’t believe I got dispended.” – “I pretended the box, there’s something shaking in it, and I go ‘pshhh.’”
