@blackcatseye: His Dad had to get him from the police station (Sherriff`s Office?) NOT school.

There`s quite a big difference, even if it wasn`t "jailing" by a Judge...

A tshirt? come on- no obscenity maybe- but after that it is ridiculous. Uniform, standard over here, saves a bloody fortune and puts paid to rows like this. starts a few more mind, but generally uniform is sensible.

This is wrong because if the school officials were pro-gun this wouldn`t be an issue. The whole thing reeks of bias.

Arrested? No. Suspended? Maybe? The fact that they are walking NRA advertisements is a bit annoying. Pushing an agenda much? But I sense there is more to this story. What did he actually do? They are not going to throw you in jail for simply sitting there and refusing to take off your shirt. He did something else.

I agree, Sue the heck out of those teachers. False arrest, infringement of civil rights, and on and on. This idiots, who apparently control our children`s education, need to be stomped on hard by the legal system.

This is the same kind of idiocy that causes a kindergartner to be sent home for pointing his finger to make it like a gun when playing cops and robbers. If you can be offended by a shirt, then drat you. I`m not a gun fan, but there was absolutely nothing wrong with the shirt. Kinda funny that the message the shirt portrays is why he got in "trouble." Still wondering what the basis of the arrest was though.

Obviously, the school has the power to send him home or even suspend him for wearing inappropriate clothing, and what clothing is "appropriate" or "inappropriate" is entirely subjective opinion...But how on Earth did it go from "inappropriate attire" to being ARRESTED unless he physically assaulted or threatened someone? You don`t get ARRESTED for wearing inappropriate clothing to school. They just send you home.

Liberals ruin everything they touch. Is it any wonder why more and more people are home schooling?

I think in order to teach children, you should at least be smarter than a child.

I used to (in 1980) have a t-shirt with the band "War" on it. It was the cover of one of their records.
Geez some people got so upset! Hippies...


(note: NOT this exact picture, just a big star and the stylized "WAR" logo...)

What? You like WAR?
Um, yeah!
War kills people!
What? They`re harmless!

Wait, Logan School has a statue of a soldier carrying a rifle?

But this guy has a picture of a rifle and gets arrested?

Ye-ah! That makes lots of "liberal" sense!

On a side note: I couldn`t see this unless I turned "compatibility mode" off. Weird eh? First time I can recall that happening.

If the school`s dress code policy doesn`t prohibit it, then he has every right to wear whatever he wants.

That begs the question: Should a school ban images of weapons, or the NRA on clothing? Just because one bleeding heart, liberal, f*cktard teacher got butthurt about it? HELL NO! You know what, I don`t like unicorns and rainbows! Let`s ban those on clothing too.

Absurd.

So, back to school dress code. I think it should be uniforms. You`re there to learn. Express yourself on your own time. Problem solved.

I do like the comparison crakrjak made between students and prisoners.

Neither of them are afforded many rights. Difference being the prisoners lost theirs when it was proven they committed a crime. The students lost theirs because they are bastards.

crakrjak - He`s kinda right. I was a bit of a punk in high school, and I know for a fact that much or our "unalienable rights" we enjoy as citizens do not apply at school.

For example: We have the right against search and seizure with out a warrant (or in some cases probable cause). On school grounds they don`t need probable cause let-alone a warrant. They simply need "reasonable suspicion"...which basically means the fact they want to search you is reason enough to search you.

@spbm02

If you want to cite a source and tell us to `deal with it` I might suggest you read the source yourself. The rights of students may be modified in a way that makes it less than the adult general public but nowhere does it state that they have no rights at all.



Jersey vs TLO


As far as the t-shirt goes the school I think was out of line and they have been increasingly so for some time. I need more info about the `disturbance` that led to his arrest though before making any kind of call on that part of it.

spbm02: "TLO v. New Jersey. Students dont have rights on school campuses."

Bullsh|t! Schools are not prisons and even prisoners have rights in prison.

Arrested and charged with what? Did he get out of hand and need to be arrested? More info is needed. He was NOT arrested for wearing a t-shirt.

But I`m torn, I don`t think kids have the same rights as adults. We weren`t allowed to wear t-shirts to school at all. He doesn`t have a right to do whatever he damn well pleases. Life Lesson: Sometimes the boss gives pooty orders and you suck it up and do it anyway. In this case the boss is the teacher.

Send him home certainly to change...then deal with the parents storming into the school to whine about how "ikkle Jared`s rights are more important than the school`s rules". Even if they don`t specifically say no guns on T-shirts surely SOME common sense has to prevail. Speaking of common sense surely the school could of dealt with this is a calm and logical way and not just go for banhammer and arrest for doing something silly.
