Middle School Student Arrested, Suspended After Argument With Teacher for Wearing NRA T-Shirt
As many courts and cases have demonstrated, school children donât have full rights to free speech while attending school. The argument and subsequent arrest demonstrate that the student was being disruptive.
An eighth-grade student was suspended and arrested after getting into an argument with his teacher about a National Rifle Association t-shirt he was wearing.
CBS affiliate WOWK-TV reports that Jared Marcum wore an NRA t-shirt that displayed a gun to Logan Middle School. A teacher questioned Marcum about the shirt, which ultimately led to his arrest and suspension.
âI donât see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a T-shirt, especially when policy doesnât forbid it,â Allen Lardieri, Jaredâs father, told WOWK.
