School tells youth to drop sword
Patrick Agin has begun learning the art of making chainmail A 17-year-old US student who enjoys re-enacting medieval battles has been banned from wielding his favourite sword in his graduation yearbook. Portsmouth High School in the US state of Rhode Island has asked Patrick Agin to submit a new photo after he first posed in full chainmail and armour.
The school rejected the photo, saying it contravened a strict zero-tolerance policy on weapons.
In response, the Agin family is suing the school for restricting free speech.
