Students Suspended For Holding Airsoft Guns In Photo Taken In Living Room

Two Massachusetts high school sweethearts—Tito Velez and Jamie Pereira—are suspended from school after posing with Airsoft toy guns for a photograph at home before attending a homecoming dance last week.

Pereira and Velez are students at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School. The photo was taken by Velez’s father in their living room and then posted to Facebook.

According to NECN.com, Pereira said, “We took [the pictures] with the Airsoft guns because that’s our hobby, and we wanted to include them.” But school officials argue that the photo caused “a disruption at the school.”

School district superintendent Dr. Richard Gross said he didn’t have a problem with the Airsoft guns, and he understands free speech. However, he “takes issue with the caption below the photo that reads ‘Homecoming 2014.'” He added: “When you tie that to a school event, that’s something to be concerned about.”

Velez defended the couple’s photograph on CBS Boston, explaining that the guns are toys that shoot plastic pellets. Yet Dr. Gross said the entire homecoming dance would have been canceled had police discovered the photo prior to the start of the event.

The suspension may last as long as 10 days, although the superintendent says there will be a hearing to consider reducing the punishment.

MY TWO SENSE

After I take photos of family or other functions, I always title it with descriptive words so that years later, when I feel nostalgic, and look at pictures of times gone by, I’ll know when and where the shots were taken.  I don’t see the difference here.  Gross claimed that had the police known about the photo, they would have shut down the dance altogether.  I tend to believe that as Massachusetts is a state in which Islamic terrorists live and torment Americans whenever their paths cross.  That state is like a third-world country, surrounded on all sides, by states of the United States of America.  Massachusetts’ state legislative body leans so far Left it lies on its side, and it continues to rotate.  Here’s a thought, I wonder if Dr. Richard Gross is a racist!?  Hmmmmmmmmmm . . . .

BREITBART BIG GOVERNMENT “VIDEO: MACHINE SWITCHES VOTES from REPUBLICAN to DEMOCRAT IN IL” by JOEL B. POLLAK


Video: Machine Switches Votes from Republican to Democrat in IL


Video has emerged from Illinois of a “calibration error” that causes voting machines to switch votes from Republican to Democrat. The video, posted on YouTube, purportedly shows voting machines in the public library in Moline, IL registering votes as Democrat when the Republican is clearly the intended choice.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YtbqebpV9vY

Several voters in Rock Island County have already claimed publicly about similar problems with local voting machines in early voting. One local voter, Christina Kirk, told local NBC News affiliate KWQC 6 last week: “When I went to cast my vote and touch the screen for my Republican candidate, the Democrat candidate was the one that would pop up with my x, even though I pressed the Republican candidate.”

The YouTube footage is the first visual report of the alleged problem with the voting machines. The error appears to occur when the voter’s finger is slightly off center in the Republican box, which appears below the Democrat box. It is apparently still possible to vote for the Republican candidate, and it is possible for a vigilant voter to correct the mistake and vote again, but a voter in a hurry might easily register a mistaken vote for the Democrat by mistake and fail to notice. The problem seems to recur throughout the ticket of races. (No test involving a voter trying to choose the Democratic candidate and selecting the Republican instead is shown.)

Former Rep. Bobby Schilling, who is running for his former seat in a district redrawn by Democrats after 2010, has held a press conference to tell reporters he that has heard many similar complaints throughout the county. The complaints mirror those of voters in Cook County, on the other side of the state, where GOP state representative candidate Jim Moynihan tried to vote for himself and the machine cast his vote for his opponent.

The Cook County Clerk’s office told non-profit monitor Illinois Watchdog that the voting machine experienced a “calibration error” that “improperly assigned” Moynihan’s vote. A similar calibration error seems to be at issue in Rock Island County. Schilling claimed last week to have received “17 calls of people saying the exact same thing.”
