These armbands were banned by the principals and the school board, with the punishment of suspension until the student was willing to take the armband off. Knowing this, The Tinkers came to school with the armbands, and were suspended. When they tried to appeal to the U.S. District Court and the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, but the court was first turned down and
Four killed, nine injured. They were simply trying to make a difference. In early 1970, following President Richard Nixon’s address regarding the American invasion of Cambodia, students across the nation decided to get involved. One protest, in particular, at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, turned into a violent protest due to the presence of guards and police, along with other figures of authority. Because it resulted in the loss of the lives of four innocent protesters on May 4, 1970, the open fire of the Ohio National Guard on Kent State University students was not justified.
They feel a sense of guilt and shame that holds them back from saying anything and we see this is the Mepham High School Football case. In the Mepham High School Football case there were three upperclassmen who lead the hazing attacks and were charged as minors on counts of aggravated assault and involuntary sexual intercourse. Also, the whole coaching staff was fired for knowing signs and not taking initiative of the behavior that lead to this case. This all started during training camp when one of the upperclassman called one of the freshman a “pussy”, “faggot”, and “cocksucker.” The freshman’s mom told head coach McElroy, so the coach replied “Okay, I’ll handle it.” From that moment on, the upperclassmen stopped calling the freshman “faggot” and started calling him “tattletale boy.” Another day at practice, the upperclassman approached the freshman while he was drinking from a water fountain. “Who do you think you are?” said the upperclassman, according to the freshman
The football team of the high school appeared “to have been ground zero for the scandal.” This resulted in a forfeit of their Friday game and a parental meeting to address these shocking events. These parents talked about the problems that are being exploited to the public and the lies that are being told. It is said that the children will be prosecuted with misdemeanors and the adults could be getting sexual offender charges depending on the photos they have acquired. With that being said, over 100 students could end up with misdemeanors because of their actions. Law enforcement does not know if this is a good prosecution because most of the student involved sent pictures of themselves.
A student “TLO” was caught smoking cigarettes in school, she was confronted by the school’s vice principal, who forced the student to hand over her purse. The vice principal then searched her purse, found drug paraphernalia and called the police; the student was eventually charged with multiple crimes and expelled from the school. Her lawyer argued that the evidence should not have been admissible in court because it violated the student 's Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. The Supreme Court decided on January 15, 1985 that the Fourth Amendment does constrain the actions of school officials, and that students have a legitimate expectation of privacy when in school. Yet TLO’s sentence was ultimately upheld
Other incidents at college spurred protest by students Additionally, in October, the Legion of Black Collegians was disrupted by a drunken white student as they were having their meeting. The drunken student is said to have voiced a racial slur when asked to leave the meeting. Then, in that same month, the Concerned Student 1950 group gave the school a list of demands. This list included them wanting Wolfe to apologize and be removed from office, as well as wanting more wide-ranging racial awareness and insertion of a curriculum that would be overseen by minority students and faculty. Speed of Wolfe resignation surprised many Many were surprised that Wolfe stepped down so quickly, as he had put out a statement saying he wanted to have an ongoing dialogue to address the issues on Sunday.
Recently in asu，there was a threat of armed students, as a student at the school I am very panic. I think this is a very serious issue for all teachers and students. No government law allows or disallows weapons on the grounds. Twenty-six states boycott the practice, with an
Unless you are convicted of a crime, you shouldn 't be punished. After 9/11, “hundreds of Arab, Muslim, and South Asian men were rounded up...and held for weeks without charges” (Eroding Liberties). After 9/11, hundreds of people were punished for someone else 's actions. This is completely unjust and unfair. It’s similar to a classroom situation when an anonymous kid acts up and won 't confess so the whole class in punished.
I. Issue: Morse vs. Frederick, 2002; Frederick, a high school senior, hung a banner saying: “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” at a school supervised activity. Morse, the principal, suspended him for 10 days saying the banner promoted illegal drug use to those attending the school supervised activity. Frederick sued Morse saying his First Amendment rights were violated. Issue: Does the First Amendment allow public school to prohibit students from displaying banners with messages promoting use of illegal drugs at school supervised activities?
Police brutality is at its peak. In recent years police men have killed a number of innocent civilians. On July 17, 2014 one such case is Eric Gardner died in Staten island, being one of those civilians who sadly have been killed by a law enforcer. Another example is Harming students and by standers has also appeared recently, on October 27th 2015 a police officer in a high school class told a student to give him her phone and she refused. Resulting in him viciously grabbing her and throwing her (while still sitting at the desk) and slamming her on the ground and sedating the student.
They got abused and didn’t get treated. If anyone had any diseases they would have to die. Even having diarrhea could be a life and death issue. Norman was taken to a commander named Ojara, where he was told that they were going to write his name. However insane Ojara commanded four teenagers to beat Norman constantly for no appropriate reason.
After 9/11, Muslims became the target of religious discrimination and racial violence. Even though the attackers were Islam Extremists, individuals still discriminate against Muslims who live in America. For example, recently, a Muslim fourteen-year-old boy was handcuffed and escorted out of school in Texas after bringing his homemade clock to school. In an interview, the teenager said that his classmates called him “ISIS boy” and that his teachers told him he couldn’t pray at school. Donald Trump, a Republican candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election recently made a statement proclaiming that he would restrict all Muslim people from moving into America.
