‚ÄúHe tells me that ‚ÄėWe‚Äôre going to issue you a criminal trespass warning,‚Äô‚ÄĚ she recalls the officer as saying. ‚Äú‚ÄėThe principal is scared of you and she doesn‚Äôt want you on the grounds.‚Äô I ask for what? And he asks, ‚ÄėWere you in the Army?‚Äô and I said, yes. He‚Äôs like, ‚ÄėDo you have a concealed weapons permit?‚Äô I said, yes.‚ÄĚ
