Another fine product of our public school system, I suppose. On Thursday, there was a bit of a dust-up at Logan Middle School in Logan, West Virginia, which was probably overshadowed by all the other news taking place. 14 year old Jared Marcum went to school that day as usual, but things quickly took a turn for the worse.
When 8th grade Jared Marcum got dressed for school on Thursday he says he had no idea that his pro-Second Amendment shirt would initiate what he calls a fight over his First Amendment rights.
“I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don’t see a problem with this, there shouldn’t be a problem with this,” Jared said.
It was the image of a gun printed on Jared’s t-shirt that sparked a dispute between a Logan Middle School teacher and Jared, that ended with Jared suspended, arrested and facing two charges, obstruction and disturbing the education process, on his otherwise spotless record.
Let’s take a look at the horrible, offensive shirt which caused such a disruption.
It’s a rifle and an NRA logo. As the article goes on to point out, school dress code policy has restrictions on clothing with images of violence, racism and the usual list of prohibitions, but there is nothing about images of guns. His father, Allen Lardieri, had to leave work to rush over and pick his son up and is now trying to figure out how a kid with a perfectly clean record is suddenly facing criminal charges over a shirt. Meanwhile, after three days passed, the school still has nothing to say.
Welcome to the police state of amerika.
