    To me, this story screams the standard "zero tolerance means zero thinking" problem that has taken over our schools. I remember way back in high school, cheap laser pointers were classified as a weapon. Bringing a weapon to school means immediate expulsion! *sigh*
    dude, they specifically said "racial tensions" what other group of people in the US could possibly be "offended" by the US flag?

    blacks?
    jews?
    hispanics?
    whites?

    please enlighten me as to which "race" is most likely to be offended or, more likely, which "race" the school officials are the most afraid of "insulting" if it is not muslims.

    LOL - on the flip side, how is banning the flag - telling students they can't fly the flag because it might offend others - going to reduce racial tension???

    I mean, assuming you're neutral, and you know you're going to piss one side off either way, it makes sense to allow what every other school in the nation allows.

    That is, assuming you're neutral.

    If I were the boys parents I'd have called the school and stated he will be exercising his right to free speech by displaying his flag, he will not have any further issues over it or there will be lawsuits filed to remove all offenders from their positions, his record cleared of all "behavioral charges" related, and monetary damages.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Any of the above, depending on circumstances?

    It's weird to see people so openly broadcast their prejudice.

    idea Re: School Makes Boy Take American Flag Off Bike

    .......... A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property......
    That is the school's "excuse".

    I doubt it was "some students". I doubt it was "any students".

    I believe it was faculty. Some politically cross-eyed faculty, that cringe at kids who are proud of America. Safety concerns had nothing to do with it. For two months the kid had been "exposed" to the potential for negative reactions aimed at him and his bike and the flag. Not a peep.

    Sorry folks, but its some liberal idiots within faculty/administration.
