It amazes me that things like this can even happen.

When I was in school, administrators had more sense than to involve the police in such a stupid incident, but I guess times have changed.

In my day, the principle would have suspended me for three days and called my dad who would have kicked my ass all the way home and them some.

School rules trump the constitution, meaning that student's can't have free speech. They can't bring in firearms. Can't bring in alcohol. Can't wear racial hatred clothing or contraband.

He didn't have free speech while on school grounds.

I do not believe he was arrested. The police were called, but he was not arrested... big difference!!

I think this threads title should remove Arrested, as it may be untrue.

I did call the Breckenridge MN District Superintendent. Due to student confidentiality issues he was unable to discuss this incident specifically . He was very professional, and concerned about this matter. He only became knowledgeable of the You Tube video when he received a call earlier today from someone attacking him about this incident.

As a parent of three teenagers, I know there is a whole second side of this story that we have not heard yet. As a Minnesotan, I will keep an eye on this issue and update accordingly.

For now, being only able to hear the student's side of this incident... I will support the young man and his story of the school over reacting by calling in Law Enforcement for what should have been a simple issue of adult Professionals being able to handle and "cool-down" a 14 year old kid.

In the comments section of this video... the OP of the video has stated that all punishments against him were dropped.

This kid should be on ATS...
Before this incident happened, he had a Ron Paul folder confiscated for being "disruptive", had to take off a 9-11 truther t-shirt he was wearing, and he holds discussions about 9-11 during lunchtime...


Sounds like an ATS member to me! I bet he scares the heck out of the adults at his school.

Just curious, I'm also in high school, anyone got any ideas how I can arrange a screening of TERRORSTORM or ENDGAME?


I take A.P. US History, and I can say the textbooks are about as one-sided as they get. Unfortunately, the majority of my classmates fail to recognize that. I just want to do my part to expose the New World Order, and, as a high school student, would like to do my part by screening a documentary. Any ideas how?

I hesitate to write this, as I believe that the speech of the young should not be deafened, but there is no right to free speech in school. There are restrictions because it is a structured environment. And it sounds like he was interrupting an investigation into a fight, and was told to butt out.
At that point he then starting saying "nu uh , I don't have to shut up!, Nuh uh!"
Claiming his first amendment rights. Um, we aren't allowed to speak free in many areas, duh.

This is why parents and faculty and school boards exist. to help bring these problems to a logical arena, not some 14 yr old mouthing off. Good for him for his lunchtime free speech, as that is a forum for free time, but boo on running his mouth in this situation.

Young people are so rash...

When I was akid this happened to me regularly. I was so self-righteous and passionate about perceived injustice that even though I was correct on principle, my inappropriate behavior outshined my original point.
Kids can be obnoxious. And I used to play the lawyer card, just for an excuse to rattle the system. Kids aren't dumb. Just inexperienced. some of my social demonstrations that resulting in concrete punishments weren't lost on my peers.

whats funny is that he actually thinks he can stop the police state

but i have had my own problems with the school system so i can sympathize

like a few months ago, some kid was getting arrested outside my school during lunch, the principal was there and she told me and some of my friends to go back to school or we would be suspended. So i asked her - "you can suspend us even though we aren't on school property or on school time?" and she said "yes". of which i said, "we'll see about that". That night i checked the Ontario education act 1993, section 36 which states that a student can only be suspended on school grounds during a school activity (or school time). The next day i went up to her told her this and told her not to make up false rules just because she was head of the school. And i never talked to her again.

the point is although im young im not very rash and i took the situation slow, with patience and it turned out stably solved so...

Alot of people are saying well he doesn't have free speech while on school grounds.

Ahh make them think they don't have a right to free speech while their young right? Gotta keep them in line right?

when they leave school they are supposed to be aware and responsible people who are capable of taking their fate into their own hands....

NOT

being powerless makes people hysterical, no matter the age. i agree that it is worrying, though, so i can understand.
