Valedictorian’s Mic Gets Cut When He Starts Talking About Free Speech [VIDEO]
This is the season for high school speeches. Looks like another student stepped into it.A North Texas high school silenced its Valedictorian’s microphone during his speech, prompting questions over his free speech rights. Students attending the Joshua High School graduation say Remington Reimer’s microphone was cut off, right when he began to talk about the Constitution.
“He just said, he was talking about getting constitutional rights getting taken away from him,” Colin Radford, a Joshua H.S. graduate, said. “And then he said, just yesterday they threatened to turn my microphone off, and then his microphone went off.”
Reimer, who was accepted into the Naval Academy, had his speech pre-approved by the school district. More info in the video.
