Special Needs Middle Schooler Suspended for Cartoon-Like Drawing of Bomb

Drawing a picture of a cartoon-like bomb on a piece of notebook paper and showing it to other kids was reportedly enough to get a special needs student in South Carolina suspended.

Amy Parham said her son Rhett was suspended from Hillcrest Middle School, even though she says administrators conceded the drawing was non-violent in nature and posed no threat to students.

“They actually reiterated to me they knew he was non-violent,” Parham told WHNS-TV. “They knew he was not actually having a bomb, creating or making a bomb.”

“But that they could not go with out making an example of him and take some type of action because they were worried about their perception,” she continued. “Perception is actually the word he used. Perception is reality, and parents might think you have a bomb or [might be] violent.”

According to Parham, Rhett, who is autistic, made the drawing over the weekend because he is a fan of the video game “Bomber Man.” When he took it to school he showed it to some of his peers, he was reported to the school administration and eventually suspended, she said.

Here’s the terrifying picture the student drew.
