Can you get arrested for driving without a licence for playing with Hot Wheels?


Because in Virginia a kid can get arrested for brandishing a weapon for possessing a toy gun.

A 10-year-old Alexandria boy was arrested after police said he brought a toy handgun to school on Tuesday, a day after he showed it to others on a school bus.

The boy, a fifth-grader at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said.

He was also suspended from school, and Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Morton Sherman said further action is being considered, including expulsion.

    Obviously that 10 YO was truly evil for having an actual physical object to brandish.

    But this 7 YO is obviously far worse by tossing a pretend grenade at a pretend box full of pretend evil forces.
    (Clearly his greatest sin was in recognizing evil as evil.)

    When I recall how about 30 of us played Army every day at elementary school recess with full assault pointed finger pistols and full auto imaginary rifles and submachine guns, plus grenades, and cannons! I just shudder at the terror we maust have inflicted on our fellow classmates and the teachers daily. How it is that we were not arrested and thrown in the darkest dungeon and our school wiped out by madmen I’ll never understand.
