TEXAS -- A boy in Texas was suspended from school all because of his Hobbit 'one ring.'

The suspension happened after Kermit Elementary School officials say 9-year-old Aiden Steward said he could make a classmate 'disappear'.

School officials called it a threat.

Aiden’s father says the family had just watched the most recent Hobbit movie, and that's what inspired Aiden’s imagination.

In an e-mail, his father wrote: "I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend's existence."

The school has declined to comment.

    SMH. Now a days it seems like these schools will suspend a student for anything and everything. What happened to the days when you had to do something awful to get suspended.

    Will there ever be an end to the mindless PC mentality of school administrators, who prove again what dolts they are when common sense should rule.

    In order to suspend someone for making a threat, the threat should need to be credible in the first place. Of course, that would require logical thinking, something that’s in extremely short supply these days.

    I knew this had to have happened in a Red state. I’m sure he would have been OK if he just brought his dad’s gun to school instead.
