KKK T-shirts Catch Eye of ACLU
A response to controversial t-shirts in a western WIsconsin school district has drawn the attention of civil rights advocates. The Wisconsin ACLU says it will investigate how The Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau school district handled the situation at the end of the school year that involved several students wearing KKK t-shirts. Those students will apparently face school discipline and maybe criminal charges for the t-shirts. But the ACLU questions whether the students' civil rights were violated. The group says the students' "expression of their religious or political beliefs is constitutionally protected." The group also says just because the t-shirts were considered offensive that alone would not give the school grounds to punish kids for wearing them.
