Political Correctness Sucks...Won't Someone Please Think of the Children?
This is yet another classic example of how insane things are getting in our society in regards to reactionary knee-jerk reactions to the problem of violence - a school puts a ban on the game of "cops and robbers".
I played cops and robbers, a lot of people did. Nice, upstanding people who never went on to murder anyone or go on serial-murdering sprees. It's true that I'm no pschologist but I'm pretty sure that if your kid grows up and goes postal on someone or becomes a hardened felon, "cops and robbers" isn't going to be the cause.
More likely you're a bad parent, he's on crack, the kid's just a psycho or he went to a crummy school where the staff is worrying over idiotic things like this instead of raising test scores.
