14 Year-Old Boy May Face Year in Jail for Wearing NRA T-Shirt to School (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | 6-15-2013 | Jim Hoft

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 (we’ll seriously hope that isn’t 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. I’m guessing a 14 year old kid who felt intimidated was trying to explain himself, but let’s throw him in jail for good measure.

So, basically they're charging him with obstruction because he wouldn't shut up when the police told him and the prosecuting attorney has decided to push it.

Sounds like somebody wants to teach him a lesson. A lesson called tyranny.

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...

Agreed, welcome to the USSA. I'm afraid i'm seeing the results of a question I asked for "craps and giggles" back in 1983 with I was 17, then it turned into a serious discussion, "what if the US became the USSR and the USSR became the US. What if we ever became the Evil Empire?" It was just a "what-if" exercise but it sure looks like it's coming about that way. BTW, I keep thinking back to Pogo Possum, "we've met the enemy, he is us." B-( It's sad. B-(

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.

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
much respect.

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....

   Failure to properly grovel before the police.

  10 years ago, I made some sarcastic remarks in front of an unhinged police officer who wanted to search my car after a seat belt violation - and whammo - two officers jumped on top of me. Later, they even stated that they had to be careful after 9/11 (maybe since I looked so like a middle-eastern terrorist with my red hair and all)

  PS: they found some Alfred Hitchcock Mystery magazines and a bunch of golf balls in my trunk.

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).

A blog linked to the school dress code:

A picture of a gun is not "violence."

Does anyone else envision a network of citizen patriots from coast to coast (who already exist!), ready to respond, like Minute Men, in particular locations where incidents such as this occur, and give a loud voice to the authoritarians,
be they teachers & principals, employers, cops, judges,
CPS, Park Rangers, wherever egregious denial of our Constitutional
rights takes place. In this instance, suppose a thousand peaceful,
law-abiding citizens descended upon that police station to
ask questions. We would need be orderly, polite, respectful:
classy. I just don't think anything short of massive appearances
at each of these locations will result in a reasserting of the Constitution.

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.

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?

He is being prosecuted for an Orwellian thought crime.

The NRA may win skrimishes but it will eventually LOSE ( Big time!)

Why?

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!

Three reasons you are right:

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”

Yuri Besmenov was a prophet and conservatives are asleep.
