In this article, we read of Patrick Agin, whose photo will not be allowed to be published as his senior photo in his high school's yearbook. It shows him posing in a mail shirt and carrying a <*gasp!!!*> sword.

This violates the school's "zero sense tolerance policy" regarding weapons.

The ACLU is involved, and one of the points being made is that the school's policy is inconsistently enforced:
The complaint says there is nothing in the weapons policy that would apply to the picture Agin submitted. It also says the weapons policy is arbitrarily enforced, noting theatrical plays at the school have included prop weapons and that the mascot — a patriot — is depicted on school grounds and publications as carrying a weapon.

You know, I don't think he's wearing that mail properly.
