Ohio Student Given 10-Day Suspension Over ‘Gun’ Photo He Never Even Posted

Seventh-grader Zachary Bowlin saw a picture of an airsoft gun on Instagram that he thought was rather cool, so he “liked” it. That action led him to receive a 10-day suspension notice from Edgewood Middle School in Trenton, Ohio, for “liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.”

Zachary was suspended – despite not being on school grounds, it being outside of school hours, and him not even commenting on the post.

As reported by WBRC-TV, Zachary didn’t understand — and his dad was livid. Zachary said he was even patted down at school the next day:

“I liked it, scrolling down Instagram at night about 7, 8 o’clock I liked it. The next morning they called me down [to the office] patted me down and checked me for weapons.”

Zachary’s dad, Marty, was understandably upset:

“I was livid, I mean, I’m sitting here thinking ‘you just suspended him for ten days for liking a picture of a gun on a social media site.

He never shared, he never commented, he never made a threatening post… anything on the site, just liked it.”

However, the story does have a better ending.

After a talk with the Bowlins, the suspension was lifted. The school then sent an “all clear” email to parents:

“Yesterday evening school officials were made aware to an alleged threat of a student bringing a gun to school. We act on any potential threat to student safety swiftly and with the utmost importance.

This morning, the alleged threat was addressed and we can assure you that all students at Edgewood Middle School are safe and school will continue as normal. Thank you.”

Superintendent Russ Fussnecker told WBRC-TV that the school board “has a ‘zero tolerance’ of violent, disruptive, harassing, intimidating, bullying, or any other inappropriate behavior by its students.”
