Kansas Schoolgirl Arrested, Charged with Felony for Brandishing Finger Gun

Kim Treacher – PJ Media Oct 10, 2019

One of the nice things about a moral panic is that it frees up individuals from responsibility for their own actions. If everybody’s panicked about some supposed social ill, it’s okay to do very silly things because you’re just trying to protect people. Whether the boogeyman is global warming, or explicit song lyrics, or violent video games, or whatever else you’re convinced is dangerous, your righteous indignation is justifiable. And if it’s about guns? Dude, panicking about guns is pretty much mandatory. They don’t even need to be real guns. These days you can freak out about toy guns, bubble guns, cookies in the shape of guns… even finger guns! The important thing is that you’re protecting the children.

Mara Rose Williams, Kansas City Star:

A 12-year-old Overland Park girl formed a gun with her fingers, pointed at four of her Westridge Middle School classmates one at a time, and then turned the pretend weapon toward herself.

Police hauled her out of school in handcuffs, arrested her and charged the child with a felony for threatening…

According to Johnson County District Court documents, on Sept. 18, the girl “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities…”

A person familiar with a more detailed incident report spoke to The Star on condition of anonymity. The person said that during a class discussion, another student asked the girl, if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be? In response, the girl allegedly pointed her finger pistol — like the ones many children use playing cops and robbers.

That’s a big no-no. The first rule of gun safety is to treat every gun like it’s loaded, even the one that’s literally just your thumb and forefinger.

Seriously, though, how is this a police matter? It’s a 12-year-old girl, armed with nothing but her finger. Are we going to force kids to wear mittens year-round so they don’t accidentally shoot somebody?

  1. Personally, I’d have a real hard time sending this poor child back to be educated by idiots.
    Picturing a Barney Fife perp walking her in cuffs, the afore mentioned idiots talking in
    hushed tones – somebody please homeshool this kid!
    Somebody shoulda been adult enough not to be this crazy.

  2. In the USA of today a child was playing out front of the house
    on a tricycle with a coloured water pistol, a police car came by
    shouted at the boy on the tricycle then shot him dead

  3. Yet more proof that the secret world government (((“deep state”))) is composed entirely of raving lunatics.

    If Humanity is to survive, we have no other option but to disempower these insane, inbred sub-Human creatures-of-the-devil by any means necessary.

  4. The United States unfortunately has run amok and this is clearly not an understatement. We are dealing with complete idiots in power and I mean COMPLETE IDIOTS !!!!!

  5. The world laughed when the ” hope and change” pervert Obama became president, it was no laughing matter
    and when CIA whistleblowers said small boys were smuggles into the White house for Obama to ” play with ”
    my husband wihspered i told you do

  6. A society run by phsycopats and the idiot’s ruled, don’t understand why nothing works?? The jewish shit-show: retard-o-mania of America/western world.


  8. I think we are missing the point. Aside from the obvious ridiculous charges on this young girl, why was it EVER OK for a teacher to pose a question like that? Seriously? If you could kill 5 people who would it be? That teacher, principal and school board should be fired.

  9. When your child starts nursery or pre school, the teacher is the spy in the room
    Anything a child says can be tesited to infer something racist, sexist or fattist,
    Teachers have to keep notes on this, which is kept in the headmasters safe.
    A recent case at my grandsons school where a squabble over the ownership of a pencil,
    meant the 7 years old child who argued with a coloured boy, was interviewed by staff and a police woman, and the police later that day called at the boys home to question his parents, and searched the home for any racist material.
    The boy who was in such trouble wasa white Christian boy
    the black boy involved was not questioned or had no home visits
    This shows the horrific racism of our authorities
