Counseling for kids who saw pastry

Here is the latest crazy zero-tolerance story from the public schools:
As you know if you have been following this dramatic story unfolding in Brooklyn Park, Maryland, seven-year-old Josh Welch has been suspended for two days after he allegedly fashioned his breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun.

Besides suspending the 7-year-old boy, the school is offering counseling to the others:
Dear Parents and Guardians: ...

If your children express that they are troubled by today's incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week. In general, please remind them of the importance of making good choices.
I doubt that any of the kids were bothered by the pastry that was eaten into the shape of a gun, but they might very well be harmed by the counseling. The attitude of these school officials is much more horrifying than the pastry.
