11-Year-old Suspended for T-Shirt

In this CNN video, an 11-year-old is suspended for refusing to take off an anti-Obama T-shirt in school. Spurred on by his father’s political stance, the plain white T read, “Obama, a terrorist’s best friend.” In an interview the father said, and I quote, “They [the people at the school] need to be slapped around a little.” Doesn’t look like the T’s gonna catch on like they hoped.

What do you think about this story? Should the kid be allowed to wear the shirt? Or, should the father be given 100 hours of community service for Obama’s campaign, making home made T’s?
