STUDENT REVOLT: Ohio Teen SUSPENDED for Refusing to ‘WALK OUT’ During Gun Protest
A teenager in Ohio made national headlines this week after he was suspended from his local high school for refusing to participate in the nationwide anti-gun ‘walk out’ demonstrations; saying he preferred to remain “non-political” and opted to stay indoors in a designated “study hall.”
According to MSN, the student told teachers he would prefer to stay in the building during the protests; adding he “wasn’t taking sides” as the country’s teens staged mass demonstrations to pressure lawmakers to enact stricter gun control measures.
Hilliard High School senior Jacob Shoemaker reportedly told teachers “school isn’t the place for politics.”
Shoemaker’s decision prompted his immediate suspension from the district, with administrator’s claiming students couldn’t be properly supervised during the protests.
“The district says it’s responsible for students’ safety and they can’t be unsupervised,” writes MSN. “Jacob’s citation for not following instructions was shared online by a friend, prompting a flood of messages to his father.”
Shoemaker’s suspension comes amid reports of other incidents during the protests, with students in Tennessee trashing an American flag during the demonstrations and jumping on top of police vehicles.
STUDENT REVOLT: Teens ASSAULT Trump-Supporting Student During 'WALK OUT'
A student carrying a pro-Donald Trump flag was physically assaulted during their school’s ‘Walk Out’ protest of the nation’s gun laws Wednesday, with local police confirming the incident and saying the un-named individual suffered “minor injuries.”
According to CBS Minnesota, two students confronted the Minneapolis teen when they noticed the ‘Trump’ flag, approaching the President’s supporter along with six other students as the school observed a seventeen-minute ‘moment of silence’ to remember those killed in the Parkland, Florida shooting last month.
“Six other students joined in the confrontation, taking away his flag, damaging his camera and inflicting minor injuries,” writes CBS. “Police say a school resource officer intervened, and is investigating the attack.”
News of the assault comes as other instances of violence were reported throughout the country during the student protests.
In Nashville, Tennessee, a large group of students trashed an American flag during the nationwide demonstration, with teachers and bystanders idly standing by.
No arrests in either incident have been made.
