It’s now unconstitutional for a high school coach to require boys to get decent haircuts

What? How does government have anything at all to do with this? Our police state is getting out of control.
Check it out:

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled earlier this week that the haircut policy of the head boys basketball coach at Greensburg High School is unconstitutional.

The coach, Stacy Meyer, has previously maintained an unwritten policy mandating that boys on the basketball team keep their hair above the ears, eyebrows and collar.

In lower court testimony, Meyer said he has enforced his policy because he believes it promotes team unity and projects a wholesome, clean-cut image for athletes.

There has been a similar policy for the boys baseball team at the south-central Indiana high school. The boys track team and the football team have no hair-length policies.

Crucially, as it turns out, no girls sports teams at Greensburg High have formal or informal policies concerning hair length.
