A week after the Newtown shooting, a six-year-old student in Maryland pointed his finger like a gun, said "pow" and his school suspended him. His parents filed an appeal this week to have the incident removed from his record.
The family of a 6-year-old Silver Spring boy who – a week after the Newtown, Conn. shooting – was suspended from school for pointing his finger like a gun and saying "pow" wants the incident stricken from the child's record.
The family's attorney filed an appeal Wednesday to ask that the incident be expunged. The attorney, Robin Ficker, said the boy had no intention to shoot anyone.
