Even students have free speech rights

Yesterday U.S. District Judge Patrick Duggan ruled that Dearborn High School can’t stop one of the students there from wearing a t-shirt that says Bush is an international terrorist. It was Bretton Barber getting kicked out of school earlier this year that first brought the t-shirt to my attention, and got me to buy one for myself, so I’m especially glad to see that the judge decided to uphold his right to free speech.

    Once you limit in any manner a freedom of any sort- that is, allow someone or some group to limit a freedom that exists- you effectively give them the momentum to take away future liberties. The freedoms that the First Amendment to The Constitution provides do not stop at the school house gate. Because one is in a position of power does not mean that he/she should think that he/knows what is fit for everyone to view. The more that we know about one another, the better chance we all have of surviving this thing called life!
