MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. – Two high school students say they’re facing expulsion over a photo posted to Facebook.
Tito Velez, 16, and his girlfriend, Jamie Pereira, are shown holding air-soft guns in a homecoming photo they posted on Facebook last Friday, according to WCVB.
Airsoft guns are replicas, which can fire plastic pellets, and are intended to be non-lethal.
Velez said they wanted their photo to be unique and use something other than flowers.
“This isn’t dangerous; you can’t kill someone with it,” Velez said. “We didn’t shoot anyone. We were pointing them at the floor. Everything was on safe, no batteries, they never left the house. We never took them to school. That’d be stupid.”
But when the teenagers put a caption on the photo, relating it to homecoming at their school, Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School, it connected the air-soft guns to a school function.
