New Re: Are you really this dense?
"The students don't completely don't lose their first amendment rights when they are in school."

Yeah, they pretty much do.

New What was that about "it's a free country", again?
New Couple of issues with this
First, these are generally children under the age of consent. As such, they are under the protection of the school.

So, are your children allowed to say anything they want to you or any other adult. Say, would you allow them to tell your mother to go get $#*(Q&d? Or would you want to limit that speech?

Different on a college campus...

New Dude, not only is 18 over the "age of consent"
(as if that has anything to do with this), 18 is also over the age of majority; the guy who displayed the sign was officially an adult, able to vote, and able to get shot all to hell in a war manufactured by the guy he most likely didn't vote for.

"It's hard for me, you know, living in this beautiful White House, to give you a firsthand assessment."
George W. Bush, when asked if he believed Iraq was in a state of civil war (Newsweek, 26 Feb 07)
New Ask it another way
had the boy been injured, would the parents of that boy sued the school for failure to protect him while at a school sanctioned event?

If there was a reasonable expectation that this event was held by the school on behalf of the students then it is not a speech issue because the administration has the right and indeed the duty to control the environment and was within their rights to suspend him for policy violations.

The rest was a nice rant but completely irrelevant.

New Begs the question of his Majority
Were he a 50 yo perpetual grad student in Biz-Ad..
(perhaps on a field trip to apply the Michelson-Morley technique (to see if money really has any velocity, after-all)) and choked on a pretzel - would his academic retinue be deemed in loco parentis, too?

50 ~= >'18' for all legal purposes.

Besides, as to these litmus decisions -- the creds lost by the USSC in the '00 Election-nullification only hinted at the next rash of 5-4 redefinitions of the Constitution. Now if all 3 branches of Govt. + the pathetic remnants of the 4th (Estate) also drop below 30% in these tiresome polls, we may achieve perfect consistency, at last -

Nobody listening to anyone. A Nation of W-clones. I can hardly wait.

New This is a litmus decision?
I'm surprised they even took it.

Student, at a school event, deliberately (by his own admission) provokes the school administration with a sign that he considers a joke and they don't.

He lost.

He should have.

New Litmus only in the sense that -
should an unbroken stream of reversals of minor issues ensue, converging, betraying a pattern asymptotic to some Major Reversals, now being brewed -- then we shall have the full measure of the degree of sophisticated lying within the BushCheney/Rove-picks' {hah} 'testimony' before Congress.
