"Red Flag" By Other Means

Interesting parallel to the proposed "red flag" laws here.

A Colorado teen has been told he cannot return to school until authorities hold a “threat assessment hearing” after he went target shooting with his mother.  Nate Evans, a junior at Loveland High School in Loveland, Colorado actually got a visit from police after he posted video of his plinking with his mom Justine according to the Colorado 2nd Amendment group Rally For Our Rights....
 Huh?  What??

Quoting the "Rally.." people:

[The mother] immediately contacted the school assuming she could easily clear things up, especially since the police had already assessed the situation and realized no one had done anything wrong or made any threats.  She was wrong.  The school not only refused to provide her with more information about the “threat”, but they refused to provide Nate with schoolwork so he doesn’t get behind.  A “threat assessment hearing” has been scheduled for Thursday morning at 10am at the school admin building where Justine will be allowed to defend her son against SEVEN school officials who will be in attendance to, as she was told, “make their case”. ...
OK.  We have an anonymous tip describing a target-shooting kid as "a threat."  He is not allowed to confront his accuser(s).  He is not allowed to return to school and in addition, is not allowed to keep up with his school assignments pending "trial" by a bunch of administrators.

He was "red-flagged", friends.  Somebody has a grudge (or there is a melted snowflake out there) and they screwed this kid right to the wall.
