A 13-year-old boy in North Carolina was reportedly suspended after he drew a picture of stick figures holding guns and knives.

Roseboro Salemburg Middle School in Sampson County suspended the unidentified seventh-grader for two days over the doodle, which portrayed one stick figure holding what appeared to be a rifle and another carrying two large knives.

James Herring, the boy’s father, was surprised his son was suspended for “just expressing himself.”

“I see a guy in a race car souped-up. I see a tower that he built. I see him holding his gun; he’s a deer hunter. I see him with a magician and I see him as a Ninja Turtle … nothing violent,” Herring told WRAL.
