Avery Doninger and Free Speech
U.S. District Judge Mark Kravitz ruled that Regional School District #10 could punish Avery Doninger for what the judge agreed was "vulgar and[or] lewd" speech (the use of the term douch-bag). It won't last long.
... And if the Doninger incident was not an opportunity to teach instead of an opportunity for reprisal then none exists. The idea that school administrators earning significant 6-digit incomes can't resolve a dispute about a concert is a clue to the region to take a harder look at what's going on in that school district.
As a citizen, former educator, and critical thinker, it appears that Avery Doninger was first abused by the school in significant, unconstitutional ways.
Connecticut's judicial branch of government needs a scrubbing. An independent citizen review needs to take a hard look at what is going on. Connecticut once one of this nation's finest courts and today the quality of rulings gives every impression that the courts have become a political whorehouse from the Supreme Court of the United States right down to the local levels.
The agenda of these new politically greased courts seems to be to deny students any right to speak out. This has little to do with freedom of speech or cyber-bullying or any such nonsense. This is about growing a docile citizenry that will not protest its own growing subjugation to forces that no American should ever genuflect to.
The same breath of God that informs our ears is the breath of God that children speak. The God that informed our Constitution called our rights inalienable.
What is the story of the money-changers in the Temple of the New Testament if not a child's eternal contribution to his culture. Who has the right to negate that today?
... If voices can be silenced then some will never speak before they die. Who has the right to deny that soul and who is to say who this world's chosen messengers can be? If the soul is a narrative then these are stories that must be realized in open speech.
