Funny story. I was a school resource officer at an elementary school. The school faculty found a plastic, red and orange toy gun in a 4th graders book bag. The school was frantic because they had a "zero tolerance" policy on weapons on school grounds. They wanted the student suspended and came to me to "do something" about it. This in spite of the fact that the gun was clearly a toy and couldn't shoot a projectile. I told the principal and staff that a 4th grader having a plastic toy gun in his book bag is not a crime. However, to pacify these emotionally unstable educators I told them I would just write an "information report" and they could handle it administratively. I called my sgt ( a liberal former school teacher) just to advise.
