No, not really. I find it ironic that the organizers of the original march complied with the letter of the law as it was, but this group didn't. I have no use for racists, whether white or black.

Whats wrong with being proud of your own race?? But Al is a hater. But I do forgive him. God will too. I forgive Jesse too. These 6 young men need to grow up, and be men, not thugs.

Just to set the facts straight - the tree was cut down long before the march took place. As far as why the second group won the courts, I have no clue. I am not an expert in Constitutional law. They evidently felt that not being allowed to carry firearms in the city limits or in a school zone was a violation of their Second Amendment rights.

The tree was removed by a contractor to make way for the new academic building. I believe that he sold it or pieces of it on e-bay. The previous building was destroyed by arson a week or so prior to the fight. Secondly, the constant stream of people coming onto the campus to see the tree were creating a potentially unsafe environment on the campus. The firearms issue was with two individuals from Tioga who were not part of the Nationalist Movement. However, Justin Barker was expelled because he had a .22 rifle behind the seat of his truck about three weeks before school was out in 2007.

I was told in law school, that if a gun was visible then it is legal. What is the intent?
