8 year old Konner Vanetta was
recently told by the Weld County School System that he was not allowed to wear
Denver Bronco Quarterback Peyton Manning’s jersey to school because the number
18 is associated with gangs.
I say again, a third grader is not
allowed to wear a football jersey to school because of a number on it.
When asked what other numbers the
School System bans, they came up with “13, 14, 18, 31, 41, 81” because, well, I
guess gangs are in to numerology?
There are so many fucktarded things
going on here that I feel I need to break it down.
ban things that gangs wear to show their affiliation, presumably for some
reason, not one of which I can muster up enough energy to give a shit thinking
WHY? If the gang members are all
wearing shit that says “Hey, I’m in this gang!” wouldn’t it make it that much
fucking easier to keep an eye on them and their illegal activities?
Also, where did MY rights (or
Konner’s) go here? Right out the fucking window for no good reason.
Do you also skim their math tests
to make sure you avoid “gang related questions” such as “What is 9x9?”
might actually be on his test… BECAUSE HE IS EIGHT FUCKING YEARS OLD!
If you think a third grader is in a
gang, you’ve got bigger fucking problems to deal with than what he is or is not
wearing to school on that particular day.
I am begging the entire school
system of Weld County to please read David Carradine’s unreleased manifesto
entitled: “How To Jerk Like A Boss” and follow the instructions.
