(Scroll down for video) A little girl was kicked out from school and threatened with jail after she talked about using a toy Hello Kitty bubble gun, according to press reports in Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania elementary school allegedly suspended the 5-year-old girl for making a terroristic threat after the girl told a friend that she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty bubble gun.
The unidentified kindergartener was initially suspended for 10 days at the Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County.
"This girl is the least terroristic person in Pennsylvania," Robin Ficker, a lawyer for the family of the girl, said.
Ficker said that the girl did not even have the toy gun, which blows soap bubbles. The kindergarten student's family is now struggling to reverse the primary school punishment, which reduced the time of the suspension to two days, from the child's record.
The child received a psychological evaluation because of the suspension. The evaluation found that the child poses no threat to others, Ficker said.
"I think it's pathetic when young children cannot play or get in such trouble for using the wrong words," he said.
The boy's mother, who was not identified, said that her daughter has been devastated since the suspension.
"All I know is that my daughter has been told that she could go to jail, which is very traumatic for a child who is just 5 years old," the child’s mother said.
