Bomb Picture Controversy
An autistic child suspended for bringing a cartoon drawing of a bomb to school, will not be expelled or charged by police.
The decision came this afternoon after a 2 hour meeting between the boy's parents and Greenville County school officials. Rhett Parham was suspended from Hillcrest Middle School on Monday for bringing a drawing to school of a bomb from a video game he plays. Parham's parents say Rhett would never hurt anyone, but that his disability makes it difficult for him to be understood.
The school has teacher workdays tomorrow and Friday, so Rhett will return to school on Monday.
