8th Grader Suspended Over NRA T-Shirt Could Get Jail Time

Washington DC - -( In April Breitbart News reported that West Virginia 8th grader Jared Marcum was suspended for refusing to take off an NRA t-shirt he wore to school.

And details now indicate the 8th grader could face a $500 fine and up to a year in jail for obstruction charges.

Fox News reports that on June 13 Marcum appeared before a judge “and was officially charged with obstructing an officer.” Moreover, the judge has allowed “the prosecution to move forward” with its case against Marcum.

Logan City Police officer James Adkins says that Marcum refused to quit talking when asked to remove the shirt. The officer said this hindered his ability to do his job.

Marcum’s father remains confident and stands by his son:

“Me, I’m more of a fighter and so is Jared and eventually we’re going to get through this. I don’t think it should have ever gone this far.”

Marcum has to appear in court again on July 11 2013 if his attorney can’t get the charges dismissed before then.

      This is beyond anything you can dream up. The Judge should be immediately removed from the bench. The police officer should be fired, and the school district should get new board members immediately. This is where the local people should be taking over their community and using some common sense. A ‘T’ shirt, that shows the NRA as apposed to a shirt with J Cuvera on it.
