Kindergartner Suspended for Telling Teacher He Had a ‘Bomb’ in Backpack

A 5-year-old kindergarten student in California received a one day suspension after he told his teacher he couldn’t take his backpack off because it had a bomb in it, and if he took it off the bomb would go off.

Now his parents are speaking out, claiming the punishment is too severe for a five year old with an active imagination and are hoping the suspension doesn’t have long lasting consequences for the child.

Does the punishment fit the crime?
