A West Virginia school egregiously violated a teenage boy’s civil rights — and now his Mom is making them regret it.

His high school was supposed to teach kids about the Constitution. Instead they violated his rights under the 1st and 14th Amendments — by punishing him for expressing support of the 2nd Amendment.

Tanya Lardieri  is suing the Logan County Board of Education for violating her teenage son’s constitutional rights after he was charged and suspended for wearing an National Rifle Association T-shirt to school.

Lardieri filed the lawsuit in federal court on behalf of her son, Jared Marcum, who was charged in 2013 for disrupting the educational process and obstructing a police officer after he refused to turn his NRA T-shirt inside out, EAGNews.org reported.

A judge later dismissed the charges, but the school still forced Jared to serve a one-day suspension.

“The shirt was an un-alarming olive green tee shirt bearing the NRA logo, which is the letters ‘NRA’ in black, the words ‘PROTECT YOUR RIGHT,’ an image of a hunting rifle and the officials NRA logo which has an eagle and two cross firearms,” according to the lawsuit, obtained by the Charleston Gazette.

The lawsuit names several school board members, the school district superintendent, several teachers and staffers at Logan Middle School, as well as the principal and the school itself.

Jared was waiting in the lunch line in the school’s cafeteria when he was physically stopped by school secretary Anita Gore, who placed her hand on his chest and prevented him from moving forward, The Logan Banner reported.

The lawsuit says Ms. Gore told Jared that he had to turn his shirt inside out or face suspension. After the teen refused, teacher David Burroway hauled him off to the principal’s office by his arm, according to the lawsuit, The Logan Banner reported.

The teen was later charged with obstruction of justice because he refused to keep quiet after the officer ordered him to stop talking.

The family is seeking $200,000 in compensatory damages and $250,000 in punitive damages for alleged violations of Jared’s First and Fourteenth Amendment rights, EAGNews.org reported.

    Who was the piece of crap cop that actually performed the arrest? We are ever moving closer to a police state where the government even restricts our thoughts.

      Yes the miranda rights state, “you have the right to remain silent”, it does not demand that you remain silent.

  • Marcia Rippie Williams

    Right up the ole butt hole, sue their asses to hell and back.

  • USN Veteran

    Suing the school board only means that taxpayers will have to pay, & the school administrators get away scot free. What should happen is that she sue them individually, & demand that they are fired.

      Couldn’t agree with you more. And by the way, thank you for your service

      They should take it one step further: sue the individuals, and give the net proceeds to the NRA defense fund. It’ll help prevent stuff like this from happening again, and stick it to the gun-grabbing liberal teachers that started this in the first place.

      I agree with the concept you present. I however believe that schools being able to create and enforce their own rules is a major problem.

      If the school isn’t sued then they can do this again. There must be a line drawn.

      I would sue them, do not settle out of court, and make this an open statement to all school systems that they cannot continue to be their own judicial systems that can violate any right they so chose.

      If the tax payers have to pay then guess what when those board members are up for reelection they will be looking for new jobs.

      • USN Veteran

        I don’t know about that town, but where I live, my friend is on the school board & isn’t paid anything, & in the next town over, they get $50 a month just to pay their expenses to show up at the meetings. Being on the school board isn’t a real job, so if they vote those people out, so what? They just have more free time & the taxpayers are still stuck with paying for that lawsuit.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? A KID WEARING AN NRA T-SHIRT FACED DISCIPLINARY ACTION AT HIS SCHOOL?? This would have been an UNTHINKABLE act in all previous generations of Americans. It was something that we learned was commonplace in the Soviet Union and other collectivist hellholes around the world. In addition to the Board of Education lawsuit she should sue EVERY INDIVIDUAL involved at the school.

  • Wiggle D

    The school officials and the officer should be hit with a rifle butt….In face, from a cannon.

  • Hows_That_Change_Working_ForYa

    This is an prime example of Limp Wristed Liberals forcing all Americans to cave to their policies. Sue them individually and make an example out of them once and for all.

  • Paul MacKay

    If his shirt was in violation of the schools dress code then it’s in violation of the dress code.He was given the option to turn it inside out but instead he chose to make a point. Rules are rules and he broke them. Quite the sense of entitlement on the part of that kid and his mother.
