Snapchat pic of airsoft gun gets student suspended, arrested

A picture is worth 1,000 words?

That’s old.

Nowadays a picture is worth a suspension from school.

At least for a Connecticut high school student who posted an image of a toy gun on his social media. On his own time, and away from school.

“I didn’t want to put any words and someone misinterpret it as a threat so I figured I posted this picture on my own time, on my property,” Zach Cassidento told WTNH radio.

Cassidento, a senior at Amity High Regional School, immediately was suspended.

And then he was arrested as a juvenile.

It was an image of an “airsoft gun,” on Snapchat, the report said.

“The words ‘have a nice day’ with a happy face is part of the gun’s design. The senior told News 8 his hobby is playing with toy guns and he thought posting the picture was harmless,” the station reported.
