Posted on 06/15/2013 6:26:40 PM PDT by servo1969
In April 8th grade student Jared Marcum was SUSPENDED and ARRESTED for wearing a NRA T-shirt to school.
Local law enforcement officials confirmed Jared Marcum was arrested over the T-shirt. It was offensive. WOWK 13 Charleston, Huntington WV News, Weather, Sports
Now it looks like Jared could face up to a year in jail. Guns Save Lives reported:
According to a report by WTRF the prosecuting attorney is moving forward with that charge and a judge is allowing the case to move forward. Fourteen year old Jared Marcum could face up to a $500 fine and up to a year in jail (well seriously hope that isnt a real possibility) if found guilty.
According to the report, the arresting officer alleges that when Jared refused to stop talking he hindered the officers ability to do his job and that is where the obstruction arrest came from. Im guessing a 14 year old kid who felt intimidated was trying to explain himself, but lets throw him in jail for good measure.
Sounds like somebody wants to teach him a lesson. A lesson called tyranny.
This is complete b/s. Our government is totally out of control at every level.
We, (That’s right) Us, the American People let reckless violations of constitutional rights happen without some kind of revolt? Sickening, absolutely sickening! This country will never recover from the level of tyranny we have reached.
Failur to properly grovel before the police. A half decent lawyer will have the charges thrown out on the grounds that it is his 1st Amendment right to wear an NRA shirt.
If there were true justice, The arresting officer and the District attorney would be looking at jail for the taking of constitutional rights under color of law.
Yeah the kid is in the eighth grade and by today’s standards is automatically a smart-mouth.
What more can I say that won’t get me banned...
School Administration = the last refuge for despots & dictator wannabees.
Yes it is Jim. Still think we can take it back via the ballot box? I don't, and I say that in the most sober and somber of ways.
I wonder if the teachers are carrying Common Core to the extreme?
Possibly a year in jail for wearing a NRA tee shirt and trying to state his case to the officer. Yikes. This is beginning a complete control of the citizens/what you do/or say/can or cannot wear. I hope to goodness, those jurors take only a few moments to throw the charges out. Some of these prosecutors seem to come across as having a grudge out for everyone or playing politics and or over zealous with the power.
Impossible. WE are over the tipping point. Illegal aliens are being flooded into the US every day to help keep the ballot box stuffed to the left. Everything is, certainly, out of control!
The arresting badgemonkey, the DA who filed these
charges as an act of intimidation and the quisling
blackrobed pirate who failed to dismiss it the moment
he saw this case ALL need to swing....and a new rope
really isn’t needed. They don’t warrant even that
This story might cheer you up a bit, Jim:
Yep, that's my opinion. Only one thing that's going to turn things around in my view ......... Not that I look forward to that one thing actually happening, I just hope when it happens it's over quickly.
He has a right to talk; throw the cop and the DA in the can for life.
>> “If there were true justice, The arresting officer and the District attorney would be looking at jail for the taking of constitutional rights under color of law.” <<
So if a total breakdown in law and order ever occurred, both the cop, attorney and judge along with any vocal contingent might just be some the first eliminated.... Just say’n these folks would deserve the appropriate compensation. All the movies of fallen regimes have this type of “equality” served on the corrupt former rulers....
Brainwashing and conditioning, not for this rebel, but for the other kids. When they get older, many of them will never join a gun club, shoot at all, or vote RKBA.
And imagine when they get drafted! The soldiers they will be fighting have grown up chanting hate prayers and throwing rocks at tanks, while these kids have been taught to cower when seeing a picture of a toy gun (from a distance).
> This is complete b/s. Our government is totally out of control at every level.
It seems that 0 is really trying hard to accelerate the demise of the U.S. this term. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. If 0 isn’t the Anti-Christ I bet he has his cell phone number.
A picture of a gun is not "violence."
It's lawsuit time.
Obviously he should have worn an NRA T-skirt!
Looks like an opportunity to teach an overreaching government a lesson, but it will take grit and guts and prayer.
To scaredy pants greenie veggie eaters it’s violence, but most of the violence done with these guns in the USA is to pieces of cardboard!!
The prosecuting attorney is a dick. Sorry if that language is offensive, but this entire case is offensive and no other term springs to mind that more aptly describes the prosecutor.
Great idea... I would even buy clothes typical of the 1776 time period and mount a copy of the Bill of Rights to carry...
HELLO TEA PARTIES!!!
In earlier years we would say what’s so offensive about his being a detective? :-)
Yeah, he is acting evilly.
The prosecutor better be careful.
This is Logan County, after all.
A friend of mine is from there. She said it’s no big deal for someone to “disappear” because they aren’t liked much.
Lots of violent history there, from the Hatfields and McCoys to Blair Mountain.
I think I heard the NRA gave him a lifetime membership....unless that was some different odious case.
Yes I do. I’m pretty close to this courthouse (Wheeling). I’d be more than happy to join a group of those minutemen.
This is ridiculous!
It was said (70’s) “power to the people”
You just gotta be there.
If you don’t own a gun, buy one. Get lots of ammo. Learn how to shoot it.
The reality is starting to confront me that I might have to die for my nation.
Never thought of it that way.
You’re absolutely correct sir.
They are the folks that stay hidden when duty calls...
...while a picture of mass murderer Che Guevara would not be.
Yet, the Supremes said we cannot execute anyone that age for murder.
I guess we have our priorities right. /sarc
And the idiots at the school who called the cop.
There’s two postings on this but neither names the other principals in this case ;The school administrator,the arresting officer, the prosecutor, and most importantly the judge.
Now on the reporting of such items current media practice is to not mention the principals but the defendant and the charges. Partcularly if it’s a conservative issue and the principals are “libs” enforcing a “liberal” issue. Note the quotation marks for the term should be socialist. Not “liberal”.
If the principals were conservatives against a “liberal” cause you bet their names would be plastered all over the place. Time to turn the tables and get the names of these “perps” out on the street...
Arresting officer? At the most, the kid broke the school’s dress code (and that is highly questionable). But since when is breaking a school’s dress code an offense for which one can get arrested? That’s not any kind of civil statute. Let’s say this kid went willingly and quietly with the officer who arrested him. What would he have been charged with then?
I’m sure that Obama would prefer to see the young boy get hanged.
Did they swab his DNA?
He could have mowed lawns to pay the $500.00 fine, BUT....
“Illegal aliens are being flooded into the US every day”
that’s not a possibility anymore/sarcasm;)
If it was an Occupy whatever shirt, everyone here would cheer his arrest.
America is long gone. If you are young - leave. It’s over.
“The tree of liberty must occasionally be nourished with the blood of patriots,When shall it begin?”
Why isn’t the NRA providing a first class attorney for this kid??
The NRA may win skrimishes but it will eventually LOSE ( Big time!)
Answer: Because the Marxists control the schools, and every other major cultural institution. In one generation the voting booths will be flooded with citizens indoctrinated to fear and hate guns and to viscerally hate conservatives. And...conservatives let them every day they send their children into government schools.
Yuri Besmenov was a prophet and most conservatives are asleep!
pictures of guns in school are not illegal.
these administrators need to be fired. any administrator under zero tolerance save-me-from-thinking policies need to be fired.
1) Fraud, more fraud, and spineless Repubs that ignore it.
2) massive illegal immigration that are soon to be voting citizens.
3) Schools! The schools in this nation are stuffed to the brim ( K-12 through graduate school) will teachers trained by Marxists in their Marxist run colleges of education. In one generation the voting booths will be flooded with them ( even if your child is “deprogrammed”
