Kids naturally want to test boundaries and see where the limits are. Carlos most likely wore the shirt to be funny and to see if he could get away with it. He took it off when asked and that should have been the end of the story. The car search was permissable because it was on school grounds - and yes AHS should have signs posted stating that cars may be searched at any time. We don't know many factors and should not be so quick to judge this family. If Ms. Espinosa has a 215 card she is legally allowed to have (herbal) medication in her car. She is right to protect her son from unjust laws in a zero tolerance system. I am glad there are attorneys like Peter Martin who will take on the system to fight for our student's constitutional rights. The comments insinuating that Carlos is/would be a date rapist are offensive, disgusting and ridiculous. He is just a kid. My daughter attends AHS and is saddened to see her peer go through this mess.
