One Duval County parent tells WOKV his son doesn’t even know what his constitutional rights are, so he’s shocked a teacher told the ten-year-old to write a letter on his willingness to give them up.

“That sentence talking about giving away freedoms for safety and security- that bothers me,” says Aaron Harvey.

He tells me his 4th grade son was told to write a note reading "I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure" following a lesson led by a guest speaker at Cedar Hills Elementary School.

A teacher goes through old lesson plan asking what constitutional rights the kids would give up in order to stay safe. Right wing fanatics, or as you call them, childish morons, jump up throw on their tri-cornered hats and grab their Gadsden flags just a little too late......

You missed your chance with the gentleman that gave us the Dept of Homeland Security!

They suffer from ostrich syndrome Batch. Of course, don't tell them you are not going to allow them to crap on police cars or legalize pot. Then they pull their heads out of the sand to throw 2 year old temper tantrums.

King Obama's Dept of Homeland security is buying up all the ammo. I wonder why?
