INJUSTICE: High school student suspended for asking Miss America to the prom

Oh, I’m sorry I thought this was America. Where free speech is protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. But apparently asking Miss America to the prom is an offensive gesture that can and will be punished. Every day in the Spring high school students are begging celebrities to go to their prom because occasionally a famous person accepts the offer and the media picks up on it. However if you do the same at a school assembly you will not only get rejected in front of everyone, but also suspended. This is the case for 18-year-old Patrick Farves, a Pennsylvania high school student who had the cojones to get up in front of his entire school and ask Miss America to the prom (Like asking some basic chick from your crummy school isn’t stressful enough, now you’re going to ask Miss America). Not only did he politely ask the beautiful Nina Davuluri to his prom, but he also presented her with a flower. Davuluri laughed and said, “Thank you,” and Patrick danced back to his seat. Now the Central York High School senior is being suspended for three days and this offense will go on his “permanent record.” Apparently school officials got wind of Patrick’s romantic scheme and warned him not to disrupt the event. Hopefully this doesn’t discourage Farves from asking even hotter, less scrupulous celebrities to his senior prom, like Evelyn Lozada.
