Anti-gun-control video project gets H.S. student suspended

Is this what we've devolved into? I know New Jersey is messed up, but damn.

A high school senior says he was suspended and ordered to undergo a psychological exam for completing an anti-gun-control school project he was assigned.

Manville school officials ordered a student who made an anti-gun control video to undergo a psychological evaluation before being allowed back in class, according to a report.

Frank Harvey said a Manville High School teacher instructed him to create a video arguing against gun control for a junior college readiness class last year, according to News 12 New Jersey.

Harvey produced a video that provided examples of people who used guns to defend themselves from home invaders, the report said. His video also displayed anti-gun-control political cartoons.

The teenager ran into trouble when he mistakenly left the thumb drive with the project on it in a computer in the school library. Someone found it and turned it over to the school administration, who then contacted police.

Manville police cleared Harvey but district officials suspended him and said he'd have to undergo a five-hour evaluation before being allowed back in school because the teacher said she didn't recall giving him the assignment.

Harvey and his mother refused, according to News 12. He's since withdrawn from school and is pursuing a GED.

School officials refused to comment to News 12.

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.
