Charlottesville–Right Now: John Whitehead joins Coy Barefoot

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.
