NEW YORK — A 14-year-old New Jersey schoolboy — whose dad and stepdad are in the military — was suspended for five days because he drew a “patriotic” stick figure of a U.S Marine blowing away a Taliban fighter, officials said yesterday.
?”He’s been punished for the drawing,” said Tinton Falls school superintendent Leonard Kelpsh. “We felt it was highly inappropriate, and we took it very seriously.”

Scott Switzer, of Colts Neck, was sent home last week from Tinton Falls Middle School after a teacher saw the image on a computer and described it to the principal.

Scott, who turned 14 Tuesday and was headed back to school Wednesday, said he was unjustly disciplined for his sketch of “a war scene.”

Remember kids – this country was founded on war, our greatest victories were using war to defeat evil enemies, we call our soldiers heroes – but for G-d’s sake – Don’t Draw That!!!!!
