Kirsters Baish| One student at a high school in Minnesota joined his fellow classmates on Wednesday to participate in the National School Walkout. This particular student was targeted and removed by his school’s principal because he was holding up a sign that read, “Guns Don’t Kill People, People Kill People.”
Kenny MacDonald was the first to upload the video to Facebook. MacDonald is a student at New Prague High School in New Prague, Minnesota. The video is short and doesn’t show what happened before or after the principal targeted MacDonald. In his post, MacDonald wrote about what happened saying, “Kids at our school today walked out, in honor of the 17 students killed in Florida. Students held signs that said, ‘Arm our teachers’ they had two signs. A student walked out without saying a word peacefully put up his sign which said ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’ he was escorted off the property by our principal and threatened to be put into a police car. This violates the first amendment and makes me sick that they can do whatever they want. Please make this go viral”
The video had been viewed roughly 300,000 times in just a few hours of being posted. It had been shared more than 17,000 times. It had taken in thousands of comments. People were angry and disgusted over the blatant attack on free speech and the clear political indoctrination in public schools across the country.
