I take exception to the June 11 article Principal pulled from post after comment on Texas Police.
The article says that the school district said that Alberto Iber’s Internet posting was “inconsistent with our expectation of common sense behavior that elevates the dignity and humanity of all, beginning with children.” What dignity were these young people displaying that needed to be elevated?
If “judgment is the currency of honesty”, how does the expression of an honest opinion lead to the allegation that Iber did not exercise good judgment?
While we do not have to agree with the others’ opinions, they are entitled to their First Amendment right to freedom of speech, even if those opinions are unpopular, and that right should be defended. I’ve grown weary of “group thinking,” political correctness and the silencing of anyone who does not agree with a particular group.
Never miss a local story.
