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."

We've reached the comic book reality of Judge Dredd

The cops *are* the law. Endemic police misconduct combined with insane laws which make frivolous annoyance of a cop into a serious crime, combined with nearly universal prosecutorial abuse, and judges who credulously convict on no further evidence but assertion by a cop. With the rare exceptions of the jury trial with fully informed jurors on the panel and equally rare responsible and honest judges, the "justice" system has become a complete farce.

When there are merely "still some good ones left" that is an indication that the system is hopelessly broken. The exceptions should be the lunatics, instead the exceptions are the sane people in positions of authority.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

This will be thrown out...no jury would convict

...and Charlo Greene is easy on the eyes. :)

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Disarm the police

They can't handle a teen without going gangster and abusing the charging process.

The judge needs to lose his job for pissing away tax payer money on a malicious and ill-conceived prosecution.

Incompetence and malfeasance.

For goodness sake.

Anybody who knows this kid and his parents, please arrange an interview with Alex Jones. Alex can at least get this national exposure, as well as educate them on the law, as he's more familiar with the law than I'd say the vast majority of lawyers!

Seriously? They are charging

Seriously? They are charging him with obstructing an officer on the basis that he didn't stop talking? And a judge is wasting his time with this case?

Well if everything else didnt make you suspicious lately, maybe this should. Because it seems the first amendment is out and people are being prosecuted on things as stupid as talking.

And no, before someone brings it up, I'm not saying he should be disrupting the class. From what I have gathered on this case, no one complained about the shirt but a teacher. And he wasn't arrested for talking in class. He was arrested for talking in the presence of a police officer.

I thought it was the opposite.

Didn't the reported say he "obtructed" due to him NOT talking? Either way, it's silly.

But Alex Jones is crazy. This stuff doesn't happen in America. Blatant 1st Amendment and 2nd Amendment violations don't happen here.

This just makes me sick

besides the ridiculous charges against him, he is a child.... this is nothing more than a power trip.

That's ridiculous.

Somebody should charge the police with obstructing justice.

WW II 1942 ~ High School Girls Shoot Rifles in School Hallway.

1942. USA High School Hallway Target Practice.

August 1942. High school girls train to defend their school. Two students from Roosevelt High School in Los Angeles, under the guidance of the Victory Corps, are shooting a rifle.

“Educating kids on the constitutional roots of the right to keep and bear arms.” ~ For Immediate Release ~ April 12, 2005

Arizona has enacted a gun-safety bill for children that breaks new ground. Worth one credit toward a high school diploma, the course requires students to safely discharge a firearm at a target to pass. American high schools used to have firing ranges in the basement, but the tradition began fading in the late 1960s. Gun-rights proponents believe that training and education leads to increased safety and responsible behavior...

Thanks for the addition to my "chicks 'n' guns" photo file.

Yes, obviously a staged shot (lighting effects &c...), as the instructor would otherwise be advising shooter that she should relax her face a little more. It's easier to just FOCUS through your aiming eye and ignore the other than to give it the extra attention it requires to hold it shut.

So now we must obey police on our wardrobe choices?

And "not answering questions" is "obstructing an officer"?

Google is government.

Should charge brickwalls and fireplugs as well.

They will also not respond to questions.

Failure to "Respect my Authoritah!"

that has been going on, compliments of an out of control Obama administration gone wild..

Don't these government

Don't these government employees have anything else better to do than go after a 14 year old kid over a t-shirt?

Are they that bored?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Well they are tax feeders.

So their jobs are pretty much useless.

they should file a civil

they should file a civil rights law suit for about 100 million dollars for violating his right of free speech.


There are documented cases already, I don't know the name but you can find them, that already state that students don't have the right of freedom of speech in schools. I can't remember the court case, but our local history teacher covers it as a court case in his Government and economics class. So this family would lose, big time and then have huge legal debt.


How did my above first comment get voted down?!?! For what reason. This up down vote crap has got to go. It's so ridiculous. All I did was state that these cases already exist and that since the president is set, this family would probably lose. I'm not saying I think they should lose, that I want them to lose or that it would be right if they did, just that this is how our messed up system works! Ugh.

Voted down probably because your are wrong.

Partially wrong anyway. I know this because I met with ACLU attorneys over my son wearing a "Legalize Marijuana" shirt at school. IF the speech is disruptive to the learning processes THEN it can be restricted.

The case you should look at is Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District. It was decided by the Supreme Court in 1969.

Even though the ACLU was willing to take the case we chose not to move forward with it because the lawyers felt it likely my son would be surveilled. At 15 I didn't feel I could ask him to make that sacrifice.

I seriously

I seriously doubt it was because I was "partially wrong". People just love the power of the up/down vote. I was stating the reality. And if in the Tinker case (I appreciate you giving me the name) people's first amendment rights to freedom of speech are infringed, how am I wrong? You know how people twist things, they'll make the case that this kid's shirt was a distraction because it yadda yadda yadda. There is no justice if the constitution isn't respected and it's not and justice is virtually gone in our country.

Then challenge those court

Then challenge those court cases as well. (assuming this was a public school)

Students are required to attend schools, and they are run by the government agencies. Therefore they cannot demand any student to give up his rights.

And go figure, they wanna say you dont have your first amendment right in the place you are supposed to be taught about it.

I'm not

I'm not saying it's right. I teach in a Factory School (My pet name for public schools), I know it's crazy. But what you really teach them, is this, "You don't really have rights, the government gives them to you and can take them away when they deem it appropriate".

Unless we're going to bring God back into the equation and say that we humans have essential dignity as image bearers of the God of the universe, then essentially, what I've just told you the school teaches is correct. But God, by any name other than naturalism will never be allowed back into Factory Schooling. He gums up the works with ethics and moral imperatives, rights etc. Naturalism can't give us rights, nature is "red in tooth and claw" as the poet said, and thus, those with power have and the rest have not.

I advocate a religion/ethics class as mandatory for all students in factory schools, because that would achieve or work toward creating good citizens, not what we're getting now, which is good worker, drone bees.
