2.9.11 Founder and President of The Rutherford Institute John Whitehead
joins Coy to discuss the Patriot Act. Today on Charlottesville Right Now, Whitehead poses the question: Are our schools becoming police states? He tells some fascinating stories about students who have been expelled from school for ridiculous reasons, including one boy dismissed for drawing a picture of his military uncle in action and another boy thrown out for bringing a LEGO police officer to class because the officer’s miniature plastic gun was judged to be a violent weapon. Also, be sure to check out The View
-that’s right, The View
- next Tuesday morning when Whitehead will be a featured guest on Oprah’s television program.
