What started off as a routine harassment from a middle school teacher to a student over a t-shirt he was wearing has turned into an embarrassing and infuriating abuse of First Amendment rights in West Virginia.
First, school officials suspended 14-year-old Jared Marcum because he was wearing an NRA shirt.
Then police arrested him because he had argued in the principal’s office that the shirt wasn’t breaking school policy.
This week, prosecutors tried to keep him from speaking to the media through an emergency gag order, which they said would serve in his “better interest.”
But Logan County prosecutors Christopher White and Sabrina Deskins are the same people trying to convict him on a charge of obstruction, which could land him in jail for a year, so they are the last people looking out for his better interest.
