10-Year Old Disciplined for Visiting 9/11 Website

Courageous youth stands up to accusation of viewing 'terrorist' information

Aaron Dykes & Alex Jones/ Jones Report | November 8, 2006

A fifth grader named 'Mark' reported to Alex Jones' Infowars TV show by phone that he had been sent home with a disciplinary report for visiting 9/11 Truth websites such as Infowars.com.

The 10 year-old Steiner Ranch Elementary student-- in Leander I.S.D. near Austin, Texas-- says that he was browsing such sites during his Computer Lab class period when a fellow student informed on him-- as though he were doing something wrong.

"He just ran up to my teacher in front of the whole class, saying 'he's searching terrorist stuff about 9/11'.

His teacher was "all shocked" and said, according to the student, "Mark, you shouldn't have been looking at conspiracy theory websites."

Mark certainly did not think he was doing anything objectionable or 'terrorism' related.

"I was just searching the government websites which tell the truth-- which they think is a conspiracy-- and I get in trouble for it," the fifth-grade student told Jones on his live TV show.

The student was sent to the Principal's office to face disciplinary measures. Steiner Ranch Elementary Assistant Principal Amy Moore was reportedly surprised that the school's IP filters hadn't blocked the sites.

"They should have," student Mark reports his Principal as saying.

He says that his principal checked the web history in his school web account, and was 'surprised.'

"I was going to websites that tell the truth about 9/11. She thought it was all a conspiracy; I confronted her," Mark said. "'No, it's all the truth,' you know. Bush-- and its not just him, a lot of other people-- and they're just trying to cover it up."

The assistant principal then told the 10 year-old, "Don't talk back to me" before sending him to sit in the hall and later back to class.

"He came home, and I couldn't really be mad at him," his father, who also spoke to Jones during the television program, admitted. "I just told him he should stay on task."

Though Mark did nothing against school rules, he was treated otherwise. His classmate tattled on him; he was sent to the principal

According to the Steiner Ranch Elementary Student & Parent Handbook, students are restricted from accessing websites considered to be abusive, obscene, sexually oriented, threatening, harassing, damaging to another's reputation, or illegal. It is also against the rules to 'attempt to circumvent content filtered according to the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA).'

However, the school makes no attempt to stifle political content, news media or public information on government activities-- which would violate American rights to free speech.

So, by that yardstick, this student did absolutely nothing wrong, yet was subjected to scolding and accused before his peers.

This is part of a chilling pattern in our society, not only in regards to free speech, but in the right to pursuing alternative views and research information.

What's wrong with our

Schools turned to prison; mindset of tyrranny

Relevant Transcript:

Mark: Yeah, There was this discipline report I got at my school. I had looked, I had went on to your website and my principal, you know I just went onto Infowars and stuff about 9/11and my principal said, "I can't believe the filter didn't pick that up."

And they said it was inappropriate, and they were saying it was conspiracies. It was crazy.

AJ: Sure, what school was this in Austin, if you don't mind my asking?

Mark: Steiner Ranch.

AJ: A spy saw you do more details

Mark: A friend, well, not even a friend, somebody else in my class--

AJ: A fellow thought criminal, yes.

Mark: He walks up to my teacher, yelling, "He's looking at terrorist stuff."

AJ: Sigh* That's what I thought. And so, he said you were looking at terrorist stuff. As a member of the youth league, he denounced you to big brother. And then your teacher decided that it was serious enough to send you down to the Principal's office?

Mark: Yes.

AJ; And this was a good lesson for the rest of your class. What, were there 22 or so.

Mark: Just about.

AJ: And so they all got a lesson that you were visiting on the school computer-- something that said something about 9/11 and so it must be terrorist.

Mark: Yeah

AJ: And will you describe what happened at Steiner-- middle school did you say?

Mark: Elementary School; 5th grade

AJ: 10 years old? Tell me what happened? Go through it for us.

Mark: I was just searching the government website which tells the truth which they think is a conspiracy and I get in trouble for it.

Mark: He said-- he [the other student] just ran up to my teacher in front of the whole class: "He's searching terrorist stuff about 9/11, and this, that and the other." And the teacher was all shocked and said, "Mark, you shouldn't have been looking at conspiracy theory websites."

AJ: But that wasn't enough, she needed to report you.

Mark : she sent me down to the Principal's Office--Amy Moore-- She said, "I can't believe the filter didn't pick it up. It was supposed to." She was just surprised to see me going there. I confronted her with the truth and she said, "Hey don't talk back to me." cause she was just scared to -- know you-- face the truth.

AJ: So when you just said this was the truth, she said 'don't talk back.'

Mark: Yes

AJ: You talk back like that any time you want to. Weak minded people like that who think you've done something wrong when you talk about 9/11 being an inside job. You said it was a government site-- were you looking up something like Northwoods?

Mark: No, they wrote down a couple of them.

AJ: Oh, she said they were gonna lock those down?

Mark: No, they got these websites from going into my profile.

AJ: so they blocked some of them?

Mark: They got into my profile

AJ: They were looking at what you had visited. You have to be watched and-- I understand, it's part of the new freedom. What did you say to her when she said you were talking back?

Mark: I said I was going to websites that tell the truth about 9/11. She thought it was all a conspiracy; I confronted her: I said, 'No, it's all the truth,' you know. Bush-- and its not just him, a lot of other people-- and they're just trying to cover it up. She said, 'Don't talk back to me.'

AJ: Well, I'm very proud of you. You say your name's Mark?

Alex Rocks!

Three months before 9/11? I found archives going back to May 1, 2001. That's over four months. But what does that matter, anyway? AJ has had a TV show for 12 years and a radio show for almost as long. What have YOU done?

what have i done? here is my

what have i done?

here is my reply email from barack obama regarding the pentagon strike video i sent him

Dear Frank:

Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns that all available footage of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon may not have been released.

I agree that the government should be as transparent as possible in releasing information about events that affect our country, but I recognize that in some instances the need for transparency is trumped by national security interests. I am sure you are familiar with the report issued by the 9/11 Commission. It provides the public with a strong compendium of information about the tragic events of 9/11.

Again, Frank, thank you for writing. Please feel free to contact me in the future with issues of concern.


Barack Obama
United States Senator

lets see, i also busted tom toles of the washington post for plagerizing a white suprecist website, his dr rumsfeld political cartoon was ripped off from the white aryan resistance website

i was the only one who busted the media for covering up the 9-14-01 israeli downing of 2 syrian migs, 3 days after 9-11.

they did not report this incident until 2004, and then claimed the date was wrong


israeli prior knowledge, they wanted the usa to invade syria first, but they may still get thier wish

i do find it odd

also that he "predicted 9/11" I think is odd.

I don't like that he runs a business selling 9/11 truth

I think he's way too bombastic and turns off a lot of folks.

that said, i found out about OKC bomb coverup from his site, nowhere else.

honestly not sure what to make of him.

Yes, and did anyone read this transcript CAREFULLY? This looks REALLY, REALLY scripted to me, like something straight out of AJ's imagination, right in line with the funny-sarcastic lines he's always pushing.

DZ you need to put fucking IP's for "anonymous posters"

It's really getting old. Yeah jones never says anything about illegal immigration, lmao. Anyone who has listened to the show for 5 mins would know that is bullshit. Seriously DZ, put up people's IP's if they are not registered. You will see the hit and run disinfo disappear.

Thank God Alex Jones stepped in to put these "educators" in check!

Students WILL NOT visit websites that may offend our glorious

Bush Führer!!!

Isn't that

just the saddest thing. Ignorance and fear. This is what we are teaching our children. Brilliant.

I feel really sorry for that

I feel really sorry for that kid being aware of all this f*cked up shit at such a young age, but I suppose it's a good thing that even 10 year old kids know what's going on.

I had a related thought this morning...

two kids, maybe 11 and 12, saw my building 7 sign and were reading it so I told them a little (not everything) to pique their curiosity. It does suck to be the bearer of bad news, but it also takes character, so good thing we truthers are around, because most people haven't yet found theirs.

I'd buy my kid a new bike

plus her own laptop.

Lily was 2 and a half on 9/11 and I didn't shield her from the tv coverage well enough, I'm sorry to say. She called it the "yucky show" and for about a year afterward, whenever we saw a police car or fire truck she'd say "yucky show." I had to make a big deposit to the future-therapy savings account for that one.

her and everybody else,

her and everybody else, casseia :) grinning & bearing
