BUNKER HILL, Ind. -- Maconaquah Elementary School in rural Indiana suspended four fifth graders over allegations of gang activity.

Officials say it started with a fight between a few students who called themselves a "gang."

District officials say some students even had a made-up gang symbol scratched into their skin.

The students could be expelled for the rest of the school year and more kids could face discipline.

The town of Bunker Hill is in the central part of Indiana and has a population of less than 1,000 people.

    I think their parents need to give them an online view of the gang members in Illinois prisons, and at Cook County Jail, monitor what their watching on tv, and playing on video games. It all looks “KOOL” until you make it reality. A bunch of 5th grad er s in a town of 1000 trying to form a gang is a very scary notion . Wake up parents.
