Charge dismissed against student who refused to remove NRA shirt
 
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/06/28/charge-dropped-against-student-who-refused-to-remove-nra-shirt/


The West Virginia eighth-grader arrested after refusing a teacher's demand he remove a National Rifle Association T-shirt he wore to school won't face criminal charges after all.

Jared Marcum, 14, was charged with obstruction following the April 18 incident after police who were called to Logan Middle School school said he refused to stop talking. The case generated national headlines, as Marcum's family and attorney, Ben White, claimed the demand that he remove the NRA shirt violated his right to freedom of speech. On Thursday, Logan County Circuit Judge Eric O'Briant signed an order dismissing the charge.

Kudos to the kid. He showed more bravery in his stance than many men on a stage with teleprompters.

That was an easy one for the judge. Let's hope a lot of othwer young folks will follow his example.

let's chalk one up for the good guys! we see from this, that it's not just about our gun rights, but our right to free speech as well that are under attack by the liberals. and at least the judge saw fit to use some common sense.

and if that teacher was offended by a T-shirt that promoted a respected organization that is fighting for our gun rights, then so be it.

Good for the kid for standing up to that scum bag teacher, shame on the teacher. Is a teacher allowed to criticize a students political beliefs like that. A student can be asked to change their clothes if they are inappropriate, that's bs, I'm pretty sure it's inappropriate for a teacher to punish a student because they do not agree with their beliefs.

I'm a native West Virginian and would NEVER have thought that I would see something like this there. Just goes to show that the antis are creeping in everywhere.

A Federal Civil Rights law suit against the teacher and the school district should get the attention of the anti's.
