FLORENCE, AZ –  A high school student in Florence said he has been suspended because of a picture of a gun.

Daniel McClaine Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School, said he saved the picture as his desktop background on his school-issued computer.

A teacher noticed it and turned him in.

The picture shows an AK-47 on top of a flag.

McClaine said the school initially suspended him for three days Friday.

Since the laptop belongs to the school, the district policy states students are prohibited from “sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures,” and cannot access, send, create or forward pictures that are considered “harassing, threatening, or illegal.”

McClaine said he read the guidelines but does not consider the picture threatening to anyone.

“This gun wallpaper does not show anything that’s violent. It’s not showing anybody getting shot in any way. It’s just a picture of a gun. It’s nothing — nobody getting shot, nobody getting it pointed at them, it’s nothing,” said McClaine.

    The American flag is more offensive to the liberals than the guns that are used to protect that flag.

    One of my boys got suspended one time for a 2 in. jack knife he wore on a necklace. So I went out and bought him a t-shirt with a foot long jack knife all opened up to wear to school.

    Rebel I say!

    Slowly, as liberties are taken from students, and parents fail to revolt, schools will be nothing more than the indoctrination centers they hope to be!

    Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia flag. Commie gun. Earrings.

    Piss on this emasculated Che-mart douche-bag. His folks raised a Useful Idiot, or a sleeper waiting for a lit fuse.

    Meanwhile the majority of the teacher staff has kiddie porn on their computers.

    And they breathe a sigh of relief.. “Ahhhh.. Attention diverted.”
