How does calling the police over a perceived legitimate safety concern = inhibiting free speech?

What would have happen had he actually been a risk to other students safety and she not had done everything possible to prevent it? Personally I believe it is better to error on the side of caution when it comes to people life, but that may just be my bleeding heart coming out again.

How do you know for a fact that she did not perceive his statement as a threat? Are you a mind reader or are you the teacher in question? Because those are the only logical reasons (I can think of) you could assert you claim as a fact. Have you ever considered giving someone the benefit of the doubt?

How was the student’s right to free speech prohibited? He had to answer some questions to the police for security reasons, but that is a fact of the dangers of the world we live in and not a free speech issue.
