Hot Springs National Park, AR asked in Constitutional Law and Education Law for Arkansas

Q: Do I have enough for a civil suit?

My son took mega death hot sauce to school and got suspended for 3 days for subversion because other teenagers tried it and got sick. I asked for the item back and the school said it was confiscated and used a police officer to stop me from taking it. My son did bring the hot sauce but did not force any one to try it.

A: They have to intend to permanently deprive you of the hot sauce in order to violate your property rights.

I have no idea if they can suspend over hot sauce or not, but it sounds ridiculous.
