14 Year Old Who Refused to Remove NRA Shirt May Now Face 1 Year In Jail

Sheer lunacy!
Suspended and arrested after refusing to change his NRA shirt. Today, 14-year-old Jared Marcum appeared before a judge and was officially charged with obstructing an officer.

A $500 fine and up to a year in jail, that's the penalty that Jared could face, now that a judge has allowed the prosecution to move forward with it's obstructing an officer charge against him.

"Me, I'm more of a fighter and so is Jared and eventually we're going to get through this," Jared's father Allen Lardieri said.  "I don't think it should have ever gotten this far."

The Logan County Police Department initially claimed that the at-the-time 8th grade Logan Middle School student was arrested for disturbing the education process, obstructing an officer and Lardieri says that officers even went as far as threatening to charge Jared with making terroristic threats.

  1. Any commentary I could make regarding the administration that hates free speech, the cops who threatened to lie on the kid and the judge who allowed this Kafkaesque travesty to proceed, would be--to put it mildly--unfit for this family-friendly blog. Imagine a whole lot of "@'s" and "*'s" and "#%&!!'s" and you'll get the picture.
