WOW!

We just don't have any common sense in this country anymore.

This kid is just 14 years old we're going to destroy his entire life in favor of politically correct idolatry.

I am so sick of free speech only being defended in cases where progressives are involved!

We can keep taking it up the wazoo or we can stop them. That is where we are at.

Why would a Middle Schooler go to jail, even juvy, for not taking off his shirt? Why were police even involved? He is an American citizen, even if he is a kid for crying out loud, not some terrorist from Russia that gets free bed, bread and education.

We’re rapidly approaching the Fourth Box. The Tree of Liberty needs a serious “watering”.

The adults (teachers and law enforcement) behind these kinds of police state actions have lost their grip on reality.

Are they going to start throwing kids in mental hospitals for bringing a pickle, a Slim Jim or a candy bar to school in their lunch? After all - they can be pointed at others just like a finger or a pop-tart.

We are only a step away from the attitudes in the past that led to frontal lobotomies.

We are dealing with authorities out of control at ALL levels!

We need to take names and go after them in the courts.

I think the trial should go through.

I think a jury will stick it to the cop(s), the judge and the system.

Why should a kid be afraid because of a T shirt ?

We are well into an era of political crimes defined by the regime and punished accordingly.

"We need to take names and go after them in the courts."

And how best to get them INto court than to have them on court record.

This is a situation where the Virginia legislature needs to immediately impeach and remove this judge. Then fire the prosecutor and charge him with civil rights violations.

If we want to take back this country, we need to start on the local and state level and vote conservatives and patriots into office who will protect us from creeping fascism.

In fact, some of you FReepers would make fine legislators on both the local and state levels.
