Smyrna teenager told to remove Jena 6 shirt

A local teen wore a shirt showing support for 6 young men being railroaded in Louisiana, but found that the high school administrators said it was "disruptive".
Dani Super, a Smyrna High School sophomore, wore a T-shirt supporting the teenagers at school.

"I just want to support these boys," Dani said.

She said she wasn't trying to cause any trouble.

"I just wanted to help," she said.

Dani and her mother were surprised when school officials asked her to change the shirt.
More information on who the Jena 6 are can be found here.
