Larry Yarrell, the Tech principal, said school staff were trying to help Young by suggesting that he "tone down" his accessories.
"If you wear female apparel, then kids are kids and they're going to say whatever it is that they want to say," Yarrell said. "Because you want to be different and because you choose to wear female apparel, it may happen. In the idealistic society, it shouldn't matter. People should be able to wear what they want to wear."
I can just imagine the lawyer for the school district banging his head on his desk repeatedly when he reads this.
Coaching tip, Mr. Yarrell, if you're going to be grossly negligent in a situation that escalates into a student bringing a stun gun to school...or could potentially become worse if the kid hadn't had the stun gun...you probably shouldn't go bragging about how you were aware of the situation and chose to blame the victim.
