A five-year-old Maryland boy was interrogated until he wet himself and suspended for 10 days after school officials caught with playing with a “cowboy-style cap gun,” the Washington Post reports, citing the child’s family and lawyer.
School officials interrogated the boy for two whole hours until he “uncharacteristically” wet his pants, the boy’s mother said. He’s “all bugs and frogs and cowboys,” she said.
“I have no problem that he had a consequence to his behavior,” said the mother, who has requested anonymity to protect the boy’s identity. “What I have a problem with is the severity,” she said, adding that the school’s handling of the situation was unacceptable
