A teen in Houston Texas, Marche Taylor, was arrested at her prom for making a fuss. What was this fuss you ask?
School officials deemed Taylor’s prom dress inappropriate and refused to let her into the prom citing school dress code. Taylor became angry, and understandably so, demanding why she was going to miss her prom over a dress? She even offered to cover up, but was still refused. When the argument escalated, someone called the police, and you guessed it…she was arrested.
Here’s the photo of her being escorted from her own prom…in cuffs.
Why not just let her cover up? Why not come to some reasonable compromise? Why go right to the ‘Brute Squad’?
This is another example of the continued and often unwarranted expansion of police power, coupled with an astounding lack of common sense at the hands of school administrators – not to mention a gross violation of freedom of expression.
What exactly was the ‘dress code violation’? No mid-drift showing?
Its okay for a young lady to show a bare back but not a bare belly? Bare legs are fine, but too much arm is a no no?
You mean to tell me that it is okay for Miley Cyrus (aka: Hannah Montana) to pose semi-nude in Vanity Fair at age 15, which is a violation of state and federal law the last time I looked, but not okay for an 18 year old to wear haltar top and mini skirt to a dance?
Maybe Marche Taylor should try to score a Disney contract so she can wear whatever or as little as she wants.
What next, boys getting arrested for wearing their tie around their head during the prom while their dancing? Hey, thats a violation of dress code too.
Only in Texas.
