He Couldn’t Hand Out The Constitution. Now He’s Suing.

by Ashe Schow, Daily Wire:

A student whose college refused to allow him to hand out the U.S. Constitution is continuing his legal battle with the school.

Kevin Shaw filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles Pierce College in March 2017, which survived a motion to dismiss from the community college earlier this year, and is now in the discovery phase, according to The College Fix. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) assisted with the lawsuit.

Shaw had attempted to hand out Spanish-language versions of the Constitution in order to recruit new members for the right-leaning student group Young Americans for Liberty. He was told he could not hand out the documents unless he was in the school’s free speech zone, and only with a permit. He says they also threatened to remove him from campus if he refused to comply.

“When I attempted to hand out copies of the Constitution that day, my only intention was to get students thinking about our founding principles and to inspire discussion of liberty and free speech,” Shaw said in a statement released by FIRE. “I had no idea I would be called upon to defend those very ideals against Pierce’s unconstitutional campus policies. This fight is about a student’s right to engage in free thinking and debate while attending college in America.”

Pierce College had a tiny free speech zone, which equated to the size of an iPhone on a tennis court, according to FIRE’s calculations.

Shaw’s lawsuit received a Statement of Interest from the Justice Department last fall, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions mentioned the suit at Turning Point USA’s high school leadership summit in D.C. on July 24, 2018.

“Last March a student filed suit against Los Angeles Pierce College, alleging that it prohibited him from distributing copies of the Constitution outside of the designated ‘free speech zone,'” Sessions said. “How big was this free speech zone? 616 square feet — barely the size of a couple of college dorm rooms. Outside of that space, students did not have freedom of speech. The student sued and we stepped in on his behalf in the case.”

"The police force is a vile and toxic dept- run by the Govt. From condescending attitudes, to violent brutality. They do it all, It's a one stop shop. They will even publish attitude themselves, just to rub it in.   "
