Eight-Grader's Fancy Hair Cut is a "Gang Symbol" to School Administrators

Jay Cowell of River Road Middle School got a fancy haircut with a star, which he said is "for God and all the stuff he made on the earth."

But the school officials saw it differently, and declared the his haircut a "gang symbol" and suspended the eight-grader until he got it all shorn off.

Did the school do the right thing? Or are they just being a fuddy duddy? http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/weird/Boy_Suspended_Over__Gang_Symbol__Haircut_All__National_.html [Flash clip]

well sweetie they did give out imformation(before school began) on what the school expects the children to wear and to not wear, and they made sure the parents knew that if their child walked into the school doors with any gang related signs anywhere on their body they will be suspended!!!!!!! so actually thats their warning right there!!! Plus the school principals were being fair and gave MANY STUDENTS up to THREE DAYS!! to take away or make it disappear somehow sooooooooo THERE WAS NO EXCUSE @ ALL YOU FEEL ME!!
