A Kansas teen recently posted a comment on twitter about Gov. Sam Brownback and has been targeted and demanded for an apology. It says right in the Constitution that any American citizen has the freedom to speak their mind. Was that not what she was doing? I understand people getting mad if she maybe threatened him or his family, but what she said was completely non-threatening. I feel like the principal of her school is just embarrassed and wants the girl to apologize just so he can rest peacefully at night. Freedom of speech is an amazing privilege and right we get here in the United States. Let her exercise it. I really hope she stands her ground on this one and protects her rights. Jake Bartel, Rocklin
