Attorney Robin Ficker says Mount Carmel Area School District officials labeled the girl a “terrorist threat” for the bubble gun remark, made Jan. 10 as both girls waited for a school bus.

Ficker says the girl didn’t even have the bubble gun with her and has never fired a real gun. He says she’s “the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania.”

School district solicitor Edward Greco tells ( ) officials are looking into the case. He said Friday school officials aren’t at liberty to discuss disciplinary actions.

  1. 5?
    starting young.
    she doesnt need a lawyer, she needs the address of this site!

    if the government is going to start alienating & victimising people at 5 then good – they wont have anybody over the age of 4 that trusts them anymore!

  2. If you have children in public school, do them the biggest favor you ever could and get them out before their brain turns to s**t. Don’t expose them to abuse from obviously deranged and retarded school administrators and teachers.

  3. And I’ll bet you thought it couldn’t get any crazier than the boy suspended for pointing his finger at a classmate!!
