Student Suspended for Removing Mexican Flag from a Prominent Place in His School

It is time we put a stop to this unpatriotic nonsense. Just a day after the incident in San Francisco, we hear of this story:
Local School Suspends Student for Removing MEXICAN Flag

Yesterday, a [News Radio 740-KTRH] listener’s son was offended that his school, Klein Collins High School, displayed the Mexican flag prominently. His mother called to complain, and the school wouldn’t return her call. The student took the sign down.

The school pitched a fit, reviewed the surveillance tapes, found the student, and suspended him for 3 days. AND he has to pay for the flag. In light of the SF story of students sent home for wearing the AMERICAN flag because it offended the Hispanic students, I thought you’d like to know about a story closer to home.
. . .
You realize, I assume, that if a student removed – or even burned – the AMERICAN flag, they wouldn’t do anything about it, I’ll bet. Story at KTRH, Houston.
The Related California incident:
A handful of California students got an unexpected lesson at their high school this week: Don't wear your stars and stripes on Cinco de Mayo.

Five Morgan Hill, California students were asked to take off their American flag bandannas and turn their T-shirts inside out after students complained, according to NBC news in San Francisco. Read More at nydaylynews.
