    Student expelled for writing a poem about the Newtown shooting

    This literally makes me feel sick to my stomach, I guess we gotta give up our free speech rights too.

    No free speech or free artistry anymore, becuase if you make a poem that isn't even that controversial really, it's apparently a violation of the zero intelligence anti violence policy.

    Perhaps it is considered an "assault poem"

    Several thoughts in no particular order.

    I guess free-speech don't count in Conn.

    It mayb be blessing in disguise for her to be kicked out of a government school.

    Sounds like teachers and administrators don't understand teenage angst; which is pretty stupid for a school employee.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    But the contents of the poem prompted the school officials at the Life Learning Academy on Treasure Island, San Francisco, to suspend her.
    SF USD is hot on the case. I'm sure they will be sure to respect this kid's rights.

    The poem was found in a personal notebook of Courtni's by a teacher, reported
    4A violation plain and simple. There should be a Oakland lawyer that would take on this case and he should get a hefty 60% chunk of taxpayer change.

    Courtni looks like she has brain power, empathy, and understanding, and the ability to think outside of a structured box, school's can't have that.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Those who don't like the second amendment certainly will not like the first.

    I was recently called the equivalent of a baby killer for merely using my 1st amendment rights by an admin agency.

    And I have been called a terrorists, sovereign citizen, etc...just for using my 1st amendment rights in relation to 2nd amendment issues.

    And the same goes for your 4th amendment rights ... say "hey, you cannot do that!" and you'll be branded a baby killer.

    I got a poem for this school board...right below..waiting for my Pulitzer (they gave one to craphead Obamalama right?)

    Our country has been slowly sliding into fascism for decades, while the girl's plight saddens me, it does not surprise me. Hopefully the courts will vindicate her.
