all the while, in pretty much every other classroom in the same school, there's the kid with his pants hanging to the ground and a fat chick wearing spandex that looks like the threads are gonna pop and take out someones eye but that's ok lol

How would you feel Dan, if someone said you should not be allowed to express your FREEDOM OF SPEECH. It is all the same.

Hey puke? What's up with that KY? What do you think Rules are for? They apply to everyone and I support the right of people to express themselves, and the 2 amendment. However, I do not believe wearing a shirt or clothes that may be disruptive in school is they way to get your point across. You remember RFA back when we went, and anything disruptive meant a call home. Don't get me wrong some of those clothes the girls wore were hot, but it can cause problems in a classroom. I can tell you from personal experience in a classroom it does not take much to set people off. That's all I am say. Maybe I could have said it better before, but having had the experiences I had in a classroom just pisses me off, and they of course blame the teacher. No doubt they could have solved the problem better, but shit happens.
The Teacher should lose his job for violating the 14 year old boy's CIVIL RIGHTS. You Teachers live in a fantasy world.
When I was in school we were taught about the Constitution and Bill of Rights. WHAT ARE YOU TEACHING NOW?

Do you not teach your child to respect adults? Or do you leave that for the adults to handle? Must be you come from from a place where children are seen and not heard!! If we don't teach our children then who will? Our trusty government? I don't think so I have never believed in guns as far as pro or against but if my father and fathers fathers were asked to give all to defend this country and its freedoms. Then you bet ur azz I expect the government to protect those same freedoms allowed me by our constitution!!!! Now I am proud to I am an American. And part of that is protecting our selfs from all enemies foreign or DOMESTIC!!!!!

We still teach the Constitution, and as an added course we also teach Social Behavior. You actually attended School? If you did you must have slept through Civic, American History, and Government classes. Because if you had paid attention you would understand, you don't have the right to violate others rights, or follow what rule you want the hell with the rest. You need to get a grip, and I don't mean on the apparent little head you use for thinking.

It appears an anger management class may offer you some help.
I do not believe you or other teachers have the right to violate others rights, such as the 14 year old wearing a popular T shirt.
It is time you and others of your ilk stop pretending to be supreme beings, remember YOU work for ME.

most people i know who own a gun are men, and men who hunt on a regular basis. i have NEVER met anyone who said that they own a gun for protection and in fact i would say that a very large number of people own a gun simply to feed their ego or because they think it's cool.

The 2nd amendment was written over 200 yrs. ago when a gun was as important as a car is today. A gun was needed to hunt food, defend the land that the owner staked, and protect him, or her selves from thieves, angry native Americans, and soldiers from the other side. No good person is going to loose their guns!
Well maybe you just need to Google Amherst NY then. State Police and DHS under scrutiny of NY Senator for illegal confiscation of a War Veterans guns.

Their response. Honest Mistake.

Hey bigger idiot. Read the article. Even the School admits there was no rule for that shirt. It was a liberal teacher trying to force his agenda on a student. It is happening everyday in America.

To quote Larry Elder

Instructors stress America's imperfections and teach that racism, sexism and homophobia remain major problems in America, that America is an imperial power that dominates the world, that "Bush lied, people died" on the Iraq War, that Abu Ghraib represents our American "military culture of abuse," which explains why so many foreigners "legitimately hate America,"

And our Society is the way it is today.

I read the article, and I will agree the incident was blown way out of context. If the school has no dress policy then the teacher was in fact wrong in what he did. Our adminstration gave us a written dress rules, as well as rules concerning cell phones. My assumption is all schools have the same rules governing dress. I never brothered my students on what they wore, and in some cases the things they wore went against my personal belief's. However, learning was more important to me than what they wore, and having them in class was more important.

Great point, I wanted to post something about how the world views America because of our foreign policy. The American government likes to think it has the right to stick its nose into everyone else business. Like I have said before these countries and cultures we are doing this to are alot old countries than ours we are only a nation in existence of about 240 years dictating to cultures and countries who have been in existence for 1000's of years. Its no wonder why they look at us with great contempt. They actually refer to us as the Police, thats why you see when they stormed the Embassy in Egypt I believe it was over the past year the protesters had A.C.A.B. slogans and signs they hung on the Embassy walls outside. Many Americans commented on Yahoo's article on this in disbelief and asked what does this mean? One guy said this must be a global consensus about us. He couldn't believe it was that wide spread. Because the article stated the ACAB slogan was at other rallies against America and American foreign interests. If we as a nation would just mind our own business and stay out of these other countries affairs I dont believe they would be coming at us like they have been. Just my personal opinion and I think many others who can see whats really going on. I dont think any culture or human being has it in their nature to want to just kill and terrorize other human beings as a whole. They usually need a good reason for such actions. Just my own opinions on this. I dont believe in violence unless you are protecting yourself or family. Sometimes you have to do a little thinking of your own. Sure its very sad and very disheartening to see people getting hurt, but come on why are they doing it? And why are we sending soo much money to help these other countries? To gain leverage and gain favor for our own interests. If we have all this money to give away to these other countries from tax payers dollars then we should be helping our own people first. Look at all the budget cuts and the sequester.

I am pro American Citizen and the protection of American citizens and our freedom and liberties. Could thing we are separated by these other countries by 2 oceans. Because I think if they could get to us easier they would. I think the government only lets us know what they think we can beleive to cover their own agenda.

Exactly my first thought when I read the story. Stupid parents. The kid is 14!

True patriot at 14? Give me a break. How stupid parents are to instill this in his head. Who bought him the shirt and allowed him to wear it to school? He's 14 not away from home living at 28. That's what he gets and I hope his parents will wake up. Believe in what you will buy stop forcing your nonsense on your children. Especially with all the killings at schools going on. I have a 13 year old and would never let them wear that or force it on them. By the way I do own guns not against this at all.(just not for children)
