“Good evening. From our National News Desk, our top story tonight…”
“A 5-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten on Monday for bringing a bubble gun, a popular plastic toy sold at stores across Colorado, to Southeast Elementary School.”
“The girl’s mother said she was shocked when she got a call from the school telling her she needed to pick up her daughter and take her home.” “It blows bubbles,” she told Security News.
Live report: “The school is sticking to its guns, calling the toy a safety concern and a classroom distraction. In a statement released by the school, the school noted its zero tolerance policy to ensure safety:
“The bringing of weapons, real or facsimile, to our schools by students can not only create a potential safety concern but also cause a distraction for our students in the learning process.””
“And in local news…”
“A grown man in blue jeans and tee-shirt and with a five-o’clock shadow was not removed from Ross Clothing Store Monday for bringing himself into a woman’s and girl’s dressing room.”
Live report w/voiceover: “I was in the dressing room, when we heard a man’s voice,” said Lisa Stickles, who says she quickly told a manager.
“She went inside the dressing room, came right back out and called me to the side and told me… he was representing himself as a woman today,” Stickles said.
Reporter: “A customer service representative with Ross would not comment on the alleged incident but said they do not discriminate against the transgender community; adding, customers may use changing rooms that apply to their gender identity.
Video: “What about me? Or my feelings?” said Sickles. “The manager told me that if I felt uncomfortable in the dressing room with him there… I’d have to wait until he’s finished.”
Reporter: “Sickles said she waited, and was shocked when she watched the man walk out.”
Video: “He was in no way dressed as a woman,” Sickles said. “He had on jeans, a t-shirt, 5 o’clock shadow, very deep voice. He was a man.”’
