School drops sexual harassment claim against 6-year-old who kissed girl

Amid a tidal wave of negative publicity, a Colorado school system has let a 6-year-old boy return to school and said it won't classify his kissing a girl on the hand as sexual harassment.

The story of first-grader Hunter Yelton made national news and spurred outrage this week after word spread that his school near Colorado Springs suspended him for the kiss and accused him of sexually harassing the girl.

On Wednesday night, CNN affiliate KRDO reported that Canon City Schools Superintendent Robin Gooldy met with Hunter's parents. The superintendent then changed Hunter's disciplinary offense from "sexual harassment" to "misconduct."

    Wow, who is the insane liberal in charge of these blogs? You can't say "t h o u g h t", not even when you replace the o with a zero. Liberals are truly insane weirdos, Satanic insanos. Why is thinking for yourself bad, oh "free thinking liberals"? WEIRD. Maybe the moderator is demon possessed.
