14-Year-Old Refuses To Remove NRA T-Shirt, Faces 1 Year In Jail
AUTHOR Kristin Tate
A middle school student in West Virginia was suspended after he refused to remove the NRA t-shirt he was wearing. 14-year-old Jared Marcum is charged with obstruction of an officer. Prosecutors have moved forward in actively pursuing the charge the middle schooler could face up to a year and jail and a $500 fine if found guilty.

America has left the building.
Demand a jury trial.
The world is insane, when I was 14 I was shooting .22’s in the range in the high school basement.
If his tee shirt read “Abortion - Protect your rights” he’d a been lauded as a hero.
and they let Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Rodham Clinton wear those pant suits
And sometimes you have to crush the stupid barstids that came up with rules that try to abrogate the 1st and 2nd amendment.
And, of course, ignore and flaunt ignoring those rules.
It's messy and harsh, but freedom works like that.
These eff'in liberals keep pushing and nudging. Remember their names. If they do not back off and start respecting our God-given rights, then they will see the free exercise thereof.
Check! Absooolutely! In this country now, anything the right supports is “illegal” but when it comes to the left anything and everything including murder is “your rights”.
Does “mrconservative.com” have a problem with FR such that only one-sentence excerpts can be posted? Not that the full article said much more.
Apparently, peasants aren't allowed to interrupt the King's Men anymore...
Statist pigs hard at work.
but he's a juvenile. He wouldn't get "a year in jail" if he murdered someone. Why would he for wearing a dangerous T-shirt?
Won’t stop talking = obstruction? lol.....has the officer ever heard of freedom of speech?
Wow. I don’t think this will fly.
The author is a freakin hottie!
The cop is a very small man consumed with his own self righteousness
Charged a kid with obstruction because he wouldn’t stop talking???
LOL! You are a pathetically small man...ere, person.
No it does not. The poster could have posted the entire article.
In the case of an article that must be excerpted, we can post up to 300 words or 1/2 of the article, whichever comes first.
The only exception I know of is articles from the AP. JimRob has requested we keep those excerpts to 100 words.
He’ll get a deferred judgment and no record.
He should have been completely left alone, of course.
On the other hand the cop is WAY outta line about harassing some kid for his T-Shirt graphics, especially 2nd amendment stuff. The cop should know way better. Search the kid for a gun or knife, OK. Search him for a un-PC T-Shirt? The guy needs to find a real beat.
File counter charges : violation of civil rights under color of authority . Basically charge the school officials with civil rights violations & play it up in the press .
We are losing this country, quicker than I ever imagined..if we dont fight for our freedom we wont have anything left
Man, would I love to be on that jury!
A lot of mindless bureaucrats would be facing at least that much jail time!
Even kids have the right to ignore truly stupid cops who make up code sections prohibiting whatever he/she/it arbitrarily and capriciously wants to define as an infraction worthy of an arrest.
Those cops, by definition, slipped through the cracks when satisfying basic psychological requirements for the job, and should be doing something else.
Unfortunately, once they engage you (most seem to be pit bulls who just lock on to a victim) the only proper resolution is to go see the judge (with all the baggage the judges carry for the cops).
Should be shown to kids at least once per year.
Cops can shoot and kill you without any oversight/retribution.
If you don't want to commit suicide by cop, it's best to treat them with initial deference. If you want to go up against someone, pick someone higher up the food chain.
The problem was created by the school administration calling in the police in the first place. The NRA is a legal business much like IBM, XEROX, etc. The teacher would not have acted the same if the boy was wearing an IBM shirt, I’m sure.
That’s okay! I don’t prefer to see Nancy Pelosi in a dress. Hillary Clinton either!
Schools are becoming freak shows. It would be comical if it weren’t damaging so many promising lives.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
They wouldn’t do a thing if he had a burglar’s tool and stolen jewelry and marijuana paraphernalia.
