Regarding the June 15 Metro article “Calvert won’t expunge record of boy with cap gun”:
I guess that the Calvert County school officials who permanently stigmatized a 5-year-old for bringing a toy gun onto a school bus forgot their own childhoods. When I was a kid, my friends and I spent our time playing cops and robbers, soldiers, or cowboys and Indians. We ran around pointing fingers at each other (or a toy gun if we had one) and shouting, “Bang! You’re dead!” That’s what little boys do.
