Definitely an overreaction. I know some of us are still a bit sensitive about the Sandy Hook shooting, but I don't think a suspension was warranted. It's not polite to do that sort of thing, so I would have just explained to the child why it's wrong and gotten them to pull their card (it's a small disciplinary action for those that don't know, definitely not as severe as suspension). But yeah, they definitely overreacted at this. Plus, you have to consider that not all children know about the incident. While some parents explained it to their children, some didn't want their children to know or worry about it, so I'm guessing he's in the latter group, and even if not, this was still taken too far.
