“Confederate Kids Have No Rights The Courts Are Bound to Respect”
Today Chief Trial Counsel Kirk Lyons of the Southern Legal Resource Center announced that the Supreme Court will not hear a case involving Candice Hardwick, who ten years ago was sent home for wearing a t-shirt to school with a Confederate flag. He is apparently quite upset about the court’s decision given his firm belief that his client has a rock solid case.
I have to say that I am very disappointed that we have been deprived of the opportunity to hear Kirk Lyons argue in front of the highest court in the land. As for precedent, Lyons argues that this “case is a lot like the Dred Scott decision.” He goes on to suggest that, “Confederate kids have no rights the courts are bound to respect.” Oh, what fun.
