Louisiana State Attorney General Jeff Landry announced today on Facebook that his office will investigate into possible constitutional violations in relation to the suspension of a 9-year-old Louisiana student who was suspended for moving a BB gun behind him while on a virtual classroom video call.
”I am alarmed by what appears to not only be multiple violations of both the State and Federal Constitutions, but also blatant government overreach by the school system.“ Jeff Landry said. “I have begun investigating this matter and plan to take action in defense of this young man and his family and all families who could suffer invasion of their homes and constitutional rights.“
The student is a resident of a school in the Jefferson Parish district, which suspended him for 6 days.
Landry says he thinks it is “absurd“ for anyone to conclude that a student‘s home is school property through a video conference.
This is developing and more details will be released throughout the investigation.
