On Monday, an Illinois middle schooler was told that his U.S. Marines T-Shirt was "inappropriate" to wear in school and that if he didn´t take the shirt off, cover it up, or turn it inside out he´d be suspended. The shirt Middle schooler Michael McIntyre, 13, wore to school featured a pair of crossed M16 rifles beneath the word "Marines." The boy´s father, Dan McIntyre, feels that the teacher objected to the depiction of the rifles and that is what sparked her demand that the boy take off the shirt.
