Lawrence King’s Parents Sue School, Make Us Go “Hmmmm”


Slain gay teen Lawrence King’s parents are making it hard to be sympathetic.

The family filed a lawsuit last week against the 15-year old’s school district for “failing to enforce a dress code, which allegedly spurred Brandon McInerney to shoot King in the head last February:

The parents and brother of 15-year-old Larry King filed a personal injury claim against the Hueneme school district seeking unspecified damages.

The claim, filed last week in Ventura County Superior Court, says administrators and teachers failed to enforce the school’s dress code when King wore feminine clothing and makeup to school.

At the time of his death, King lived in a nearby youth shelter. He had been removed from his parents’ home six months before, but no details have been released on what exactly went down. It seems to us the parents may not be angels in all of this.

Besides, is there a dress code saying boys can’t wear makeup?
