Teach Your Children Well - II

Michael Coviello attends Hasbrouck Heights High School in New Jersey.

Michael was sent from school for violating a school district policy.

Michael was “livid” and thought “his rights were being violated”.

Michael and his mother said they "forgot" about the school policy.

Michael’s antics at school the next two days were enough to earn him a seat in the principal's office "immediately"

"The entire protest was Michael's idea. My husband and I did not approve of this," Michael’s mother said. "We warned him that he would get into trouble.”

Laura Coviello, Michael’s mother said she spoke with schools Superintendent Joseph Luongo, who explained district policy.

Michael continued his “protest” and on the third day, Principal Peter O'Hare told Michael his behavior was disruptive.

Michael was given a note to bring home to his parents explaining that he was barred from continuing his “protest”.

That's when Laura Coviello contacted the ACLU.

"If Michael wants to protest, then he should have that right," Laura Coviello said.

After that, Michael continued his protest everyday.

Last week, the Coviellos, an ACLU representative and school administrators crafted a compromise

"This is the right outcome," ACLU attorney Jeanne LoCicero said in a written statement. Michael protested a "senseless, discriminatory school policy," she said.

What was Michael Coviello “protesting” and what “right” was the ACLU defending?

Fausta has the answer.

The ACLU, there when our right to uncover our knees is violated!

I have two words for Mrs. Coviello and her family. BIRTH CONTROL! I would hate to see this kind of stupidity passed onto future generations! Maybe this woman should stop attacking the school and start attacking herself for being a lazy parent and letting Playstation, MTV, and internet porn raise her child for her. You did a great job Mrs. Coviello!

The Asians are kicking our asses. Taking our jobs, both manufacturing and back office and this kid's parents are worried that he have a right to protest? The Chinese and Indians must just laugh their asses off when they see this stuff.

The right to protest injustice is established and it is our divine duty to practice it intelligently. No justice is ever minor and no injustice is ever too small.
