We first brought you coverage of this story back in April, and as shocking as it was, I’d assumed we’d pretty much heard the end of it. In case you missed it, here’s the short recap:
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.
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.
By the end of the story, Jared was back in school and his parents were working with local authorities to get this incredibly stupid exercise in oppression off of his record. That should have been the end of it, but apparently the local powers that be are planning to take this situation to its illogical extreme.
