I’m Not Sure It Was a ‘Gang-Style Clothing’ Crackdown

Student Forced To Remove “Gang-Style” Gators Shirt
Two Osceola County parents said their son was humiliated at school when he was suspected of wearing “gang-style” clothing. Saint Cloud Middle School said only a handful of students were searched last week when they got a complaint.
The parents told Eyewitness News, if their son was wearing low baggy pants or a bandana, by all means he should have been sent home, but he wasn’t. He was wearing a Florida Gators t-shirt.
Robert and Sara Crosby can’t understand how their son could be connected to gang activity, especially by wearing a Gators t-shirt.

I’m sure it was just a simple gut reaction to the picture on the shirt. Like the way our dogs never have to poop during a walk until they’re in front of a lawn with a Gators flag flying. Then it’s bombs away ~ no stoppin’ ’em. Like it’s a mission and a mandate. (In all fairness, it’s the exact same reaction when they spot FSU colors. ‘Animals are dumb and colorblind’. Yeah, right.)
So Mom and Dad ~ cut the school board a huss and put the kid in Spongebob. He shouldn’t pay for your questionable loyalties, errors in judgement and downright offensive taste.

    So what, are they Purdue fans? 😉

  2. I did use the word ‘questionable’…

  3. John says:

    I meant your dogs. Purdue fans?

  4. Whoa doggy ~ thought you were talking about the schoolboard.
    No. I think the family jingle goes “P U Purdue, I love I U”.

    I had a suite mate at Rosem-Hosem whose parents were IU fans. He was accepted both at Rose and Purdue. His parents told him that even if he attended Purdue, they’d still root for IU.
    Of course, you could always split the difference and attend med school at IUPUI.

  6. Which is where all the nurses in the family got their degrees.
