Eighth grader Jared Marcum wore a shirt that featured the NRA logo and a hunting rifle. The shirt didn’t violate school policy, which specifically bans clothing that features profanity, violence, and discriminatory messages, but says nothing about guns.Emphasis mine.
When Jared arrived at school, his teacher demanded that he remove the shirt. He refused. His teacher then had him removed from the class room, he was suspended, and then arrested and charged with obstruction and disturbing the education process.
All for wearing a NRA T-Shirt that says “Protect Your Rights.”
Suspension? Removal from class? This kid, in fact any American kid, ought to take it as a badge of honor in this context. But...arrested? ARRESTED? For wearing a damn T-shirt? What country do these people think they're in?
Any cop who would make this arrest doesn't deserve to wear a badge. Period, blanket statement, don't give me any "I was just doing my job" bullshit, I'm not gonna hear it. This is wrong, and if you don't know that, you're on the wrong side of...well, everything.
If you have children in Publik Skool, move Heaven and Earth to get them out of there. This crap is only going to get worse. Jared, God be with you and yours during these trials.
