Vegan Students Suspended

From member station KCPW in Salt Lake City, Beverly Amsler reports that vegan students in Utah are being suspended for wearing tee-shirts with vegan mottoes. Vegans are people who don't eat or use products made from animals. The students say they're promoting a healthy lifestyle. School officials say they're promoting trouble. The school claims they're in a gang, but the students lawyers say their free speech rights are being violated.
