The kid should counterattack:
18 USC 142 -- Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
and
42 USC § 1983 - Civil action for deprivation of rights
Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.
Seriously, overreach needs punished; it's not an accident and it's not harmless.

Good, their whole case was bullshit based on the teen’s failure to properly grovel before the school cop.

Agree..... Malicious prosecution is a common law intentional tort, while like the tort of abuse of process, its elements include (1) intentionally (and maliciously) instituting and pursuing (or causing to be instituted or pursued) a legal action (civil or criminal) that is (2) brought without probable cause and (3) dismissed in favor of the victim of the malicious prosecution. In some jurisdictions, the term “malicious prosecution” denotes the wrongful initiation of criminal proceedings, while the term “malicious use of process” denotes the wrongful initiation of civil proceedings.

Add the teacher that started the whole ruckus, the principal, and the DA who wasted taxpayer money. Sue them personally and professionally.

Charges dismissed against teenager at center of NRA shirt controversy....

UPDATE:

Initial reports say that the charges against Jared Marcum have been dismissed.

I hope so! Its been a tough week for conservatives, Christians & patriots so far. Losing the 2 SCOTUS gay rulings (RAT bastards), seeing the Senate & traiterous RINOs voting to give 11-30 million or so illegal aliens amnesty, and seeing Zimmerman getting railroaded in a trumped up monkey court trial...Whew!

I hope the report above on the teen NRA T-shirt is true. We don't win very many legislative battles or especially court cases any longer, so it's nice to get a bone thrown our way, now & then.

It also took a cop willing to make the arrest. Two things I can’t fathom in this situation: A kid being arrested for a suspension related activity, not involving violence and property damage. A cop that doesn’t deal with a mouthy kid (according to the charges) by putting him in a room by himself and calling a parent.

Charges dismissed. Well I would hope so. I hope the parents are getting ready to file a lawsuit for a lot of money.

Bottom line is they thought he’d cave and plead out. This is done all the time. Ronnie Earl from Austin got Kay Baily Hutchison indicted and dropped charges about an hour before the trial was to start.

Zimmerman refused to cave. Paula Deen caved immediately.

Actually they got the word that folks from across the state of WV were going to converge on their little community on Friday to support that young man. Me thinks they got a wee bit scared. W.Virginians are not nice when they get riled up, and they were plenty riled by this offense against common sense.

We are at a point in America where we are going to have to organize and fight to save our Liberties. We are under assault on all fronts. This is war and we will need to garner our troops for the battles ahead.

Let's face it -- the only 'crime' this kid committed was not bowing to arbitrary and abusive 'authority'.

Everyone responsible for his unjust prosecution need to be canned and sued into the poorhouse.

In the end, only taxpayers fund this crap. I wish they could sue the responsible parties and make THEM pay rather than taxpayers.

Kudos to the press on this one.

Charlos is cute.

These people need the sanitizing light of day put on them and one of the best tools is video.

And the kid should now sue. Unless conservatives start pushing back with litigation for violation of their civil rights the weenie bureaucrats will keeping using the state apparatus to squelch all opposition and dissent.
