AN eight-year-old boy violated his Rhode Island school's no drugs and weapons policy after wearing an army hat he made to honour the US armed forces.
WPRI said David Morales made the camouflage hat as a school project but when he wore it to class, Tiogue School officials told him it violated their policy that prohibits students from bringing drugs or weapons to school.
Officials at the Conventry school said David violated the policy because he had stuck toy soldiers holding guns to the hat.
The Morales family disagreed with the policy but said they would respectfully obey the rules.

I remember a few years ago I read about an american(sic) student being suspended because of a Che Guevara belt buckle.
But the sooner our young boys aren't indoctrinated by macho-militaristic role models the better.
Same goes for turning young girls into consumeristic(sic) prostitutes.
That is all.
