14 Year Old Student Jared Marcum May Face Year in Jail For Refusing to Remove NRA Shirt in School


Good grief, we can’t seem ta arrest any one at the IRS for illegally targeting conservative organizations or any one at the Justice department for AP or James Rosen-gate, but the some how we are able to jail a 14 year old for freedom of speech.

We had previously reported that 8th grader Jared Marcum, who attended the Logan Middle School in West Virginia had been arrested, suspended and faced charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with the image of a firearm and the words “Protect Your Right” printed on it to school. School officials actually called the police on this kid for wearing a shirt to school and expressing his “freedom of speech”. This is still America, right? But now we learn that the case has not been dropped and that Jared Marcum could face a year in jail. HUH? As stated at Guns Saves Lives, how on Earth have these charges not yet been dropped? This entire incident was caused by an over-reaction by school officials and now it has gotten so far out of control that it could lead to an American citizen expressing their Constitutional rights.

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.

According to the report, both the prosecuting attorney and police refused to comment or answer any questions from reporters regarding the case.

When did this country get so screwed up? Does anyone think he would be facing the same predicament if his shirt was “anti-gun” or maybe if it was pro-Muslim” or pro “illegal immigration”. Weasel Zippers says, STOP THE INSANITY!!! When will some one in authority use an ounce of common sense and just drop the charges?

      thank goodness he didn’t have a poptart with him, or a tea party membership card in his pocket. the fascists would have had him shot at dawn.

      The citizens need to go to the school board and demand some people be removed from their positions.
      The school policies need to be known by all parents and tax payers. If there is conflict with constitutional rights, then they need to be changed.

      The anti-gun nut cases have gained control of the school systems. In my day, guns were at most high schools for training in shooting.

      Most if not all, of the school and mass church and theater shootings were brought about by people who where taking or withdrawing from drugs given by doctors to control a perceived mental condition. Get rid of the drugs.

      this is proof that this country is under siege by the communist left. arm yourselves because the IRS is already armed and training to kill innocent Americans who do not bow down to the likes of obama and his thug army.

      I agree with Super Dave and The Texas Grandfather.
