Young Boy Brings Toy Gun to School, Suspended for 2 years

It all started a year ago, when then 7-yr-old Samuel Bargos was playing with a toy gun with friends and put it in his back-pack. He then accidentally left the toy gun in his back-pack when he left for school a few days later. A teacher found the toy gun and young Samuel was suspended for two years.
The school board said they would admit Samuel into a correctional school for problem children who have been expelled located in Hallandale Beach.
The parents refused and believe their son has already paid for his mistake enough. Samuel has since been home-schooled, but his parents want him back in public school.
"I can't sit here and allow them to send my kid to a school where students have committed actual crimes," Burgos said. "He hasn't committed a crime."
With all the stress and confusion, Samuel Bargos has fallen back emotionally and will most likely have to repeat the second grade.
