Did he play a role before the gun was presented? Maybe talk the guy into bringing the gun then got scared at the last second?
Assuming he's innocent because he did good in the end is naive. If anyone in this knod of situation is told to stay home for a few days, why is he different?
Wouldn't most kids see it as a reward? A couple days off school to relax?

The article is too lacking in details. There's obviously more to it. And I have always been of the opinion that school suspensions are never looked at as punishment by the students receiving them.

depends on the student, my brother missed only a total of a 1/2 a day of school, ever, he would have seen it as a punishment. my oldest daughter would have seen it as a punishment as well, we had to force her to stay home when she was sick.Jay Shrewsbury

Look at it this way, if he were an adult at a job, he'd probably be given a couple days off work to relax and process the whole thing. Why wouldn't you do that for a student as well? And, as mentioned by someone else, if he did go to school the next day, he probably wouldn't be able to concentrate at all and could potentially distract others from learning not just himself. Do you want to take learning away from those other kids too?
I think the only thing wrong here is calling it a "suspension". If he did no wrong, I'm sure his record will reflect that and this "suspension" will not be seen as disciplinary.

My bad. I get you now.
If his parents have any decency, they won't sue. That's just teaching that you only do things to get things.
