One Student SUSPENDED for Not Walking Out During Anti-Gun Protest

One high school senior in Ohio refused to submit to the peer-pressure of participating in Wednesday’s nationwide “walkout”, to protest guns, and stayed in class instead.

The Hilliard Davidson High School senior, Jacob Shoemaker, didn’t want to pick sides of this debate. Instead of applauding Shoemaker for having an independent thought, the school punished him with a suspension.

According to the Associated Press, the senior claimed divisive politics did not belong in the schools of America and refused to take sides on the issue.

The story of Shoemaker’s suspension went viral after his citation was posted on social media, allegedly by a friend.

“Student refused to follow instructions after being warned repeatedly by several administrators,” the letter said. “Student not permitted on school property.”

Via IJR: School district spokesperson Stacie Raterman said official policy prohibited school officials from leaving Shoemaker unattended in the building for “security reasons,” 10TV reported.

While Shoemaker said he didn’t expect for his actions to generate so much attention, he is prepared to accept the consequences of his decision.
