An Inclusive Litany

8/29/01

A federal appeals court overturned the expulsion of a Little Rock junior high school student who wrote a provocative rap that described plans to rape, sodomize and kill a seventh-grade classmate who broke up with him. The court ruled that the boy's rap was not a "true threat," and was thus protected by the First Amendment. An official for the school district said that if necessary, they'd make the same decision again in order to prevent "another Columbine."
