A South Philadelphia elementary student was searched in front of classmates and threatened with arrest after she mistakenly brought a “paper gun” to school, yet another example of the hysteria sweeping America’s school system in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre.

Melody Valentin was given the “paper gun,” which amounted to little more than a sheet of A4 paper with a corner torn off, by her grandfather before she put it in her pocket and forgot all about it.

When a school administrator found the piece of paper, Valentin was verbally chastised in front of the whole class and, according to her mother, even threatened with arrest. Valentin was also searched as the other children looked on.

A FOX 29 video clip shows Valentin crying as she complains of her classmates calling her a “murderer” as a result of the incident.

“I’m waking up at three o’clock in the morning and my daughter’s in the bathroom crying, she’s saying I’m having nightmares, I’m having dreams that he’s chasing me down the street,” said Dianna Kelly, the girl’s mother, adding that the administrator stood over her daughter threatening to call the cops and have her arrested.

“He yelled at me and said I shouldn’t have brought the gun to school, but I kept telling him it was a paper gun and he wouldn’t listen,” said Valentin
