Recruiters on campus, but not Activists

Students are keeping recruiters on their toes. Especially if a recruiter crosses the line into harrassment, name-calling or lying. Intro:

Paul Waters-Smith, 17, said military recruiters call students sissies and say things like "It's time to be a man" to try to get them to enlist.

On top of the harassment, recruiters target the weak and "promise things that will never happen," the Pine View High School senior said.

Waters-Smith was one of nearly 20 people who urged the Manatee County School Board on Monday night to let groups on campus to counter the messages of the recruiters.

"We are targets for our very lives," Waters-Smith said. "This is unacceptable. We will not be lied to anymore."
