A 12-year-old boy was suspended Thursday after a gun keychain barely larger than the size of a quarter fell out the student’s backpack at a Rhode Island middle school.
The seventh grade Shawn Feinstein Middle School student, Joseph Lyssikatos, said the small toy he won at an arcade fell out of his backpack before a classmate picked it up and starting showing others, according to WCAU-TV.
“This boy was the one waving it or showing it to other kids. Not Joseph. Joseph wasn’t doing that so why weren’t both of them reprimanded,” Bonnie Bonanno, Joseph’s mother, told WCAU-TV.
