Preston Middle School

This school's resource officer has charged my son with a misdemeanor for making a statement about the president and the school. He was talking with other students and the teachers were saying he could not say those kind of comments. During lunch, the kids were saying that they think that the president is a terrible president and they did not want Obamacare. They said some Obama jokes that the teachers did not like. My son said fine, "If I cannot kill Obama, then I might as well bomb the school." He was mad that the teachers were telling them what they can and cannot say, so he said this. I did not think that this was the smartest thing to say. This is what ultimately got him the misdemeanor ticket. My son is also a special education student at this school. He will say some really stupid things sometimes and the school knows him very well. He has never harmed anyone or ever damaged any property. I think that the officer has unfairly punished him. The school has suspended him in addition to the ticket. Please let me know what you think.
