Two Jacksonville Students, Wearing Obama Shirts, Asked To Leave Clinton Rally

Two high school students at the Hillary Clinton rally yesterday were asked to leave, for what some say was because they wore Obama t-shirts during the rally.

Deputy Chief Paul Spring from Jacksonville Police tells us the t-shirts had nothing to do with the citation.

Police say a teacher asked an officer to step in when an argument between the two students and the teacher got heated.

Spring says, the two Northside students, 18 year old Shatonya Bailey and 17 year old Marisa Head --didn't follow instructions to leave, which is why they were removed from the rally and charged with failure to disperse.

    I am the shatonya Bailey this article is referring to. This is not that full story of what happen. It was more then a teacher and i arguing. Or even the obama T-shirt I was snatched from the bleachers by a police officer after asking him what i was doing wrong. No one asked why i had the t-shirt, the t-shirt wasnt even mine, or for that matter on my body. I had it in my hands. I was stripped of my freedom from speech and it was not right. Im not a diruptive person, I just wanted to be heard and treated as a human being!!!!

    The T-Shirt wasn't the issue, the face on the shirt was a threat...These girls wearing Obama t-shirt to a speech was sometime very small. for example, Duke player goes to a UNC game, sit on UNC side with DUKE shirts on, are they going to ask them to leave. this is a very small problem, they should've allowed them to stay,maybe they would've left wearing a Hilary t-shirt

    Im with Anonymous from April 27th. Whomever will stop these people who ABUSE the welfare, social sercuity, medicare, system etc. Has my VOTE... I am tired of working my A** off for some of these people whom can but will not work to get all these services. Now given there are those out there that need and deserve help but Im referring to those who DO NOT need them but find ways to falsify documents to get the services. I know a man now that is capable of working but because he knows how to work the systems gets a check every month therefore he doesnt have to work. This is unfair and which ever candiate can put a STOP to this has my VOTE...

    "didn't follow instructions to leave, which is why they were removed" Riiight - kinda like being arrested for resisting arrest. These facists are *everywhere* - including inside "progressive" organisations. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

    what happened to freedom of speech? I know there were Hillary fans at Obama's rally in Greenville. If you can't take the heat....quit hillary!!!!

    So presuming that the reason for leaving was that there was a "heated argument," one must ask why only 2 of the 3 people in this alleged heated argument were asked to leave.
