Rhode Island: Keeping The Country Safe From Toy Soldiers Since... (insert date when idiots redefined political correctness to exemplify abject stupidity)

RI boy who made banned toy soldier hat gets medal

 EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – A Rhode Island boy whose school banned a hat he made because the toy soldiers on it carried tiny guns was awarded a medal on Friday for his patriotic efforts.

Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio, the retired head of the Rhode Island National Guard, gave 8-year-old David Morales a medal called a challenge coin during an appearance on WPRO-AM's John DePetro show.
Centracchio said the second-grader should be thanked for recognizing veterans and soldiers.

"You did nothing wrong, and you did an outstanding job," he said. "We can only hope that kids of your caliber will continue to defend this country."

Centracchio also gave David a certificate that allows him to call himself a brigadier general.
David was assigned to make a hat last week for a project at the Tiogue School in Coventry. He chose a patriotic theme and glued plastic Army figures to a camouflage baseball cap. But school officials said the hat ran afoul of their no-weapons policy because the Army men held tiny guns."

Not one to criticize, cough, but we reallyreally need to keep these school "officials" as far away from  children as possible. Before they crank out many more ObamaCarters and the country makes the fall of Rome resemble a water balloon fight in comparison.
