West Virginia teen now facing year in jail over NRA T-shirt

A West Virginia eighth-grader who was suspended from school for refusing to change his National Rifle Association T-shirt faces up to one year in jail and a $500 fine after being formally charged with obstructing an officer.

Jared Marcum, 14, appeared before a judge Monday and was hit with formal charges that carry a maximum $500 fine and up to a year in jail. The Logan County Police Department initially claimed that Marcum was arrested April 18 for disturbing the education process and obstructing an officer. His father said that officers even went as far as threatening to charge Jared with making terror threats.

"In my view of the facts, Jared didn't do anything wrong," Ben White, Jared's attorney told WTRF. "I think officer Adkins could have done something differently."

Arresting officer James Adkins claimed that Marcum’s refusal to talk obstructed his ability to do his job, while White argued that Adkins never made reference to any violent acts or threats in his petition.

<quoted text> What is it with you republicans that hates democrats so much, but love to travel back in time when your Republican party were the democrats? Hence the phrase " Southern Democrats!" Nowadays, republicans claim turf of most southern states so, just how do you propose that happened? When do you propose that happened? Why did it happen? Why, how, & when did the switch in party lines happen DB? Answer those questions, then you'll realize you're actually talking about the republicans in disgust!
As for the double standard you hold & expect me to also have for the president. It's just that, a double standard! You're still harping about 4 Americans killed in hostile territory &, reapply had no business being there. Anyway, you zip your lips when it comes to the 13 embassies attacked & dozens of people killed under the blind eyes of GWB! Why the double stranded DB?
With me?
I hate the Democratic Party because it built itself on lies and treason, sabotaged the United States during the Cold War, invented a system of lies to dupe the entire country with, helped the communists in their attempt to end our existence, spit on Vietnam veterans, invented a system of lies to slander them with,... I could go on for a long time here.
Why do I hate Democrats? I don't hate all Democrats. I only hate the Democrats that are knowingly trying to take over the country and end the existence of the constitutional republic. I don't hate the Democrat dupes that are ignorant of who they are following and what they are doing.
But, that's history. Let's talk about today.
I hate the Democrats for collapsing our economy for political purposes.
I hate the Democrats for sabotaging the United States in the war the Arabs started on 9/11.
I hate the Democrats for planning a large-scale war against the American people.
I hate the Democrats for putting terrorists in the White House.
I hate the Democrats for importing who knows how many terrorists from Saudi Arabia.
I hate the Democrats for being pathological liars.

... I could go on for a long time here....

You know, the Muslim Brotherhood is at war with the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood has a full-time presence in the White House.
What are the odds that there are treasonous offenses being committed now in the White House that are hanging offenses? Do you think that's possible?

If there are treasonous offenses punishable by hanging being committed in the White House, what are the chances that those people ever plan to leave the White House?
I'll tell you. None.

The unions are just strong arms of the Democratic Party and liberal administrations.
Teachers' unions set the tone in public schools and there are more liberals running the show.
But Carol, didn't you just blame the administrators for problems in the schools? Last time I looked they weren't union. In the system that my wife works at the city government is Republican and they've allowed the school superintendent to rack up expenses by hiring more administrators and cutting back on teachers.

Wrong you vomitous cretin! Wal-Mart keeps their prices low because they buy their goods from countries that pay slave wages and subject their workers to unsafe working conditions and pay their own workers such crap wages that most of them are eligible for food stamps.
Costco also sells goods for low prices and their workers are unionized. This country's economy was at its best when union was more of the norm than the exception before Ronald Reagan cut the legs out from under them and the middle class.
You're an idiot!
Walmart keeps prices low by buying in bulk and negotiating aggressively. Their Bounty towels and Pampers diapers come from the same mill in Pennsylvania as the Bounty towels and Pampers diapers in any other store.

The majority of Costco stores are NOT unionized.

You need discipline.
So what is your idea of discipline when you aren't allowed to do anything that might make the student or their parent mad and they don't particularly care about your efforts to discipline them because they know they have the upper hand?

Please tell me how you would deal with a 16-year-old who has never had to deal with any consequences in his life and cannot be removed from your classroom.

I'm listening. In fact, I'm all ears.

The theory used to be behavioral problems became the parents' problem if they didn't want their child to have a warm fanny.
If parents had to leave work and take care of their own undisciplined children or figure out what to do with their child after they were suspended for a few days, there'd be a heckuva decrease in disciplinary problems in the public schools.
I guarantee it.
Sending kids to "detention" to get out of the classroom IS a reward.
Anything to get away from you could be considered a reward, IMHO; therefore, I intend to reward myself for the rest of the week. You sound so old; just what were your method classes?

Putin is a real president who has to go on stage with an obvious fraud putting on a clown act holding up a sign that says "We're sorry" in one hand and holding out a tin cup in the other hand.

Oh. So the IRS holding up the approval for conservative groups and rushing through approval for Obama groups was, how did you put it, "subject to the same scrutiny and only progressive groups were denied tax exempt status."
I'm betting you got that information from Rachel Maddow or Chris Matthews... really credible sources you have....

The easiest way for any government agency to deny an application is through endless delay, not immediate rejection. Once denied, then the applicant can take the government to court.

The NSA programs of acquiring broad amounts of telephone and Internet data have drawn support from both Republicans and Democrats, including the leading members of both parties on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein and Saxby Chambliss. While some in the GOP, such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are standing by their principles, others such as Sen. Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appear to trust Obama only when it suits their agenda.
In a statement, Chambliss says that these "lawful intelligence activities must continue, with the careful oversight of the executive …" This is surprising coming from the same man who believes that President Obama was misleading the American people: "What Susan Rice said was exactly what President Obama told her to say … They were about ready to throw her under the bus." He later added, "I do think that there were some politics involved in the message that the White House wanted to send."
Sen. Graham has even gone as far as to attack Rand Paul for criticizing the White House: "I see the threat to the average American, radical Islam coming to our backyard trying to destroy our way of life. He sees the threat (from) the government that's trying to stop the attack. I'm more threatened by the radical Islamists than I am the government agencies who are trying to protect us."
So is Paul or Chambliss right? Let's look at the rough numbers:

US civilian deaths by al Qaeda:~3000

US military deaths by Bush/Obama:~7000

Hmmm, one of those entities is more than twice as dangerous to Americans as the other.
