A group of second grade students protesting the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner staged a demonstration outside their Massachusetts school on Friday.
The 20-odd group of students, aged 7 and 8 years old, held signs that read ‘Honk if you want justice’ and ‘Please don’t shoot me, Ferguson’ and chanted on the sidewalk beside Alma Del Mar Charter School in New Bedford.
The school says it was the students’ idea and so they set them free to conduct their protest. Uh huh.
Even in the most liberal state in our nation, political protests dreamed up and conducted by second graders is improbable at best.
