Guess the State, or Are Schools Now Child Abuse Factories?

This surprises me for a few reasons.

1.) Trenton, Ohio is hardly the place where one would expect people to overreact about a toy gun.  I wouldn't think they'd overreact to a real one, either.

2.) He "liked" a photo of a toy gun.  To quote the school-abused kid's father, “He never shared, he never commented, never made a threatening post … [he] just liked it.”

3.) I would think Trenton would have more pressing things to worry about than the photo of a toy gun.

I mean, this is a small city.  Given their crime statistics, it seems they have a problem with real violence.

Oh, look.  The administrator who is so concerned about a kid "liking" an electronic image of a toy gun boasts of bringing his own, real gun to school.
