18 year old Chris Borg was suspended last week by the dangerously dimwitted and wildly overpaid government educrats who run the Hinsdale Central High School.

Bruce "Pencil Neck"Law
He was suspended for wearing a T-shirt which depicted a long gun and the web address of a pro-2nd Amendment organization.
Some eagle-eyed Hinsdale High hall monitor espied the politically incorrect T-shirt and immediately judged it to be "unsafe and disruptive."
Then the chief school hall monitor, one Kimberly Dever, who shakes down the taxpayers for $130k a year and also goes by the title of dean, told Borg he had to turn the shirt inside out or be suspended. Borg said "nuts" to that blatant violation of his free speech rights and was suspended for a day.
Then the Grand High Hall Monitor, one Bruce (Pencil Neck) Law, who hauls down a cool $155k a year and also goes by the title of Superintendent, upheld Borg's suspension.
He said it was OK to ban expressions "when it's offensive, when it's predicted to be offensive, when it promotes drugs, alcohol, violence."
|Would this T-Shirt be banned?|
I wonder if there is any conceivable T-shirt on today's market that could not be predicted to be offensive, to somebody, somewhere.
Does Hinsdale High ban Malcolm X T-shirts? Mexican flag T-shirts? Che Guevara T-shirts? American Flag T-shirts? How about the popular "Don't be a Jackass" T-Shirt with the Democrat Party logo?
We're guessing only the latter 2.
So anyway, with the support of his dad, who admires his principled stand, Borg is appealing to have the suspension removed from his record. For this, the arbiter is the school's principal.
But if that fails, there is also the possibility of a court challenge to Hinsdale SD 86, with the backing of the legal arm of the Illinois State Rifle Association.
BTW, Hinsdale High School has assigned Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper as required summer reading.

and Thought Policeman Kimberly Dever
According to the American Library Association, that is in the top 10 most challenged and banned books in the US for its "Sexism, Homosexuality, Sexually Explicit Offensive Language, Religious Viewpoint, Unsuitability to Age Group, Drugs, Suicide, Violence."
I think that one can reasonably predict it to be offensive to somebody, somewhere. So crack hall monitors and offensive expression censors, Kimberly Dever and Bruce Law had better get out the flame throwers and commit that tome to the ash heap.
George Orwell's 1984 is also on Hinsdale High School's summer reading list. Dever and Law would do well to expand their feeble minds by reading it.
Below is a complete list of the names and salaries of the teachers and administrators of the Hinsdale High School system.
They were garnered by the Family Taxpayers Foundation via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. They are the latest available (2012) figures and will be updated as new data becomes available.
Note that in most cases, these salaries are for a mere 9 months work. An astonishing 58% are hauling down more than 6 figures a year for these 3 season gigs. You can get further data on the individual government school employee by clicking on the individual payroller's name:
