MOUNT CARMEL, PA – A 5-year-old Pennsylvania girl raised eyebrows at school when she said something about wanting to shoot “bubbles” at a friend. According to her parents, that playful comment, referring to a Hello Kitty bubble gun, lead to three hours of questioning without parental consent and a ten day suspension.

The girl’s parents aren’t happy.

For their part, the school is saying the media may not have completely accurate information, but they are not providing a different account.

At this point, the girl’s parents apparently want her to switch schools, but it reportedly says “terrorist” on her transcript, and that doesn’t go over well.

It sounds to us like there are some holes in this story.  Maybe someone’s bubble will burst soon.
