Neil Gorsuch's opinion regarding a 13 year old student-clown who repeatedly burps in class - gets arrested
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has written 800 opinions as a US appeals court judge. Buy the burp-clown case might reveal more about Gorsuch than almost any other.

So a kid intentionally burps in class, distracting his classmates and the PE teacher.

Teech sends the burper into the hallway. The student continues to pop his head around the corner.

Instead of sending the student to the vice-principal's office, the teacher calls for a police resource officer. He arrests the teen. The boy spends an hour in juvenile detention before being released with no charges filed against him.

His mom sues and the case ends up before the Appeals Court.

Siding with the minority, Gorusch voted in favor of the mother.

"The majority took 94 pages to justify the position that the officer was reasonable in believing a 13-year-old boy violated a New Mexico statute making it a crime to “willfully interfere with the educational process of any public or private school” (N.M. Stat. Ann. § 30–20–13(D)).

"Gorsuch, however, took less than four pages in dissent to explain that a reasonable police officer should have understood that arresting a 'class clown for burping was going a step too far.'”

The people that wanted to jail a 13 year old for burping need to be jailed. God forbid we hold the parent accountable for anything, even grounding the kid from his cell phone.

Would it be fair to say that 90% of us have done something in middle school or high school that could have merited a spell in juvenile detention if the majority's opinion in this case were the law of the land?

Gorsuch stood up to the police state mentality.

Great point.

Grounding from cell phone is perhaps the greatest punishment a teen can have these days.

Back in the sixties there were no cell phones. I got paddled for whispering in class one time. It was at Gonzaga high school in DC. Father Hocking. Bastard. He took his sister to his high school prom when he went to Gonzaga. You don't live that down. I would have gladly given up my cell phone instead.
