Aiming for success: Not for this unlucky pupil
An American schoolboy has been suspended after he fired an IMAGINARY bow and arrow in class.

The 10-year-old is said to have violated the school's zero-tolerance policy on weapons.

"Here's how ridiculous it is," defence attorney Jonna Spillbor told Fox News.

"If we're going to punish this poor kid for pretending to shoot a bow and arrow, let's ticket his parents for parking their unicorn in a fire zone."

The Rutherford Institute, a civil rights group, have backed the youngster branding the action as "senseless."

"We all want to keep the schools safe," president John W Whitehead said on the Huffington Post.

"But I'd far prefer to see something credible done about actual threats, rather than this ongoing, senseless targeting of imaginary horseplay."
