Cincinnati, OH — In what can be described as a decision made in a society driven by fear, a 7-year-old boy was suspended from school for three days for pretending to shoot an imaginary bow and arrow.

The boy, who returned to school today after receiving his punishment, formed an imaginary bow and arrow and ‘shot’ it at his friend. The two boys were engaged in a ‘dangerous’ game of Power Rangers when they were spotted by the teachers who saw something and said something.




According to WLWT, the boy’s parents, Matthew and Martha Miele, told WLWT their son was playing a game of Power Rangers at recess on Thursday when it happened.

“I think he’s a good principal. I just think a bad decision was made,” Matthew Miele said of Principal Joe Crachiolo, who handed down the steep

“I didn’t really understand. I had him (the principal) on the phone for a good amount of time so he could really explain to me what he was trying to tell me,” Martha Miele said. “My question to him was ‘Is this really necessary? Does this really need to be a three-day suspension under the circumstances that he was playing and he’s 6 years old?’”


The parents pleaded with the school to apply a bit of reason to their decision but were met with the following statement from the principal.

“I have no tolerance for any real, pretend, or imitated violence. The punishment is an out of school suspension.”

“I can’t stop him from pretending to be a superhero. I can’t stop him from playing ninja turtles. I can’t stop him from doing these things and I don’t think it would be healthy to do so,” Martha Miele said.
