Charge dismissed against Jared Marcum for wearing NRA shirt
Jared Marcum was a very bad boy according to West Virginia authorities and school officials. He dared to wear an NRA shirt and got suspended for it. Then he was threatened with jail for one year for refusing to remove the shirt. Now, after all the backlash, the charges against Jared Marcum have been dropped. West Virginia is the state that kept Democrat Robert KKK Byrd in the Senate for 50 years, and elected Obama rubber stamp Joe Manchin who just recently discovered that Obama is conducting a war on coal. So I wouldn’t expect anything less from this Democrat state.
Jared Marcum, 14, was charged with obstruction following the April 18 incident after police who were called to Logan Middle School school said he refused to stop talking. The case generated national headlines, as Marcum’s family and attorney, Ben White, claimed the demand that he remove the NRA shirt violated his right to freedom of speech. On Thursday, Logan County Circuit Judge Eric O’Briant signed an order dismissing the charge.
Marcum’s mother, Tanya Lardieri, told WOWK that she was overcome with emotion after signing a dismissal order relating to the charge. The boy’s father, Allen Lardieri, said the couple is just glad Eric’s legal troubles are behind him.
“It should have come sooner but it’s done and we don’t have to have that concern anymore about him having a criminal record,” Allen Lardieri told WOWK. “I’m just glad that it’s over. His mother is glad it’s over.”
