Boy suspended from school for wearing an anti-Obama tT shirt.
An 11 year old Colorado boy was suspended from school for wearing an anti Obama T shirt. When told to choose between suspension from school or changing the shirt or turning it inside out, he chose suspension.
The boy's father is now suing the school, saying that his son's rights of freedom of expression, under the first amendment have been violated. The school claims if the boy was allowed to wear the shirt it would have been disruptive to school activities. In looking at both sides of the coin, I can see where it could have been disruptive for the kid to wear the shirt, but what is more important... violating the kid's rights or possibly disrupting the school's activities. The legal question would be, does the first amendment protect the rights of an 11 year old minor or not?
