    I wonder what else happened here that isn't being reported. I commend him for standing up for his beliefs, but I'd like to hear what all went down. Pretty uncommon to arrest a kid for a shirt. I'll be interested to hear more about it.
    Thanks,

    Erik

    Should be unheard of, but recently it seems to be acceptable our "politically correct" era in light of the kids being suspended from school for throwing a pretend grenade or cocking a pretend pistol etc.
    What do gooder"politically correct"liberals fail to realize is that the inclusion of the first word {politically} in the term "politically correct" generally eliminates the possibility of the second word {correct} from ever happening


    Another thing the politically correct mindset has done that Kind of baffles me is when they try to claim certain murders are more egregious because they were comitted against a class of people that meets their definition of a "Hate Crime" Isn't murder by its very nature kind of the ultimate "hate crime" regardless of who the victim or motivation is?

    Since this is a minor child I don't think L.E. or the school will be giving us much info as in "nothing". Then in all probability the lawyer for the boy is keeping the lid on parts of it. I admire the kid's guts. It takes nerve to stand up to a teacher. The one thing that I read that got my attention was the info that the boy had not been called on this in his previous classes that day. I'm totally on the boy's side in this ( at least with the info that is available now ).

    Funny you should make that comment. Tonight I was at our local "Aggie Muster" and one of the old ags was telling the whole group about when he was at A&M and how he lived in the Camel Jock dorm. Another attendee is a friend of mine and a local politician. I suggested to him that if that story continued he might have to leave so that he wasn't associated with such a blatant flaunting of proper sensibilities. Common term back in the day. Totally un-PC now. Really funny!!

    What is interesting to me and another who left a comment on the MSN article is...when you really think about it...who or what did more disruption to the education of the class...the T-Shirt or the Teacher.

    Seems to me the shirt had no way to actually interrupt anything...if it were not for the teacher I am sure the class would have carried on...business as usual.

    IDK...maybe I am to simple minded, but if you arrest one for disruption shouldn't the other be arrested as well.

    Good for the kid to where what he feels he wants to wear to school. However, I would guess that was not the main reason for the issues that got him in trouble. I would think the teacher said something to the student and the student in turn said something back. from there it escalated into where it ended up, with him being in trouble.
