So who is gullible enough to believe that the posters would get moved out of general public view if the SRO's had not confronted the students?

No one. The article makes it pretty clear that the reason they were moved is because the SRO's and students were getting into debates about them in the hallways. Had the posters been anodyne, they certainly would have stayed.

While the SRO's did not march into the hall like jackboot thugs and destroy the posters, they really have no business trying to confront students about their education projects while on duty as an SRO.

I wonder if that's true. Neither students nor SRO's give up their First Amendment rights at the schoolhouse door. Absent some rule, an SRO would be just as free to get into a discussion with a student about a poster in the hallway as another student would.

I don't know - it seems like the point of putting up the posters in the hallway was, in part, to promote discussion and dissemination of the ideas that the students had about the underlying work to people who weren't in the students' class.
