    In this instance, the boy was in error, should have voiced his complaint to the office directly.

    Also, surveillance tapes? Do a lot of American high schools have cameras now?
    Unfortunately this is becoming more prevalent in various school districts.

    Some schools carry monitoring to excess. Case in point. Lower Merion School District sued for cyber spying on students | Philadelphia Daily News | 02/18/2010

    Yeah. The student should not have removed school property without permission. I'm surprised they didn't charge him with theft.

    The student most likely should have not removed the flag. Who ever put it up should not have put up a Mexican Flag. Wonder if the school displays the Irish flag on St. Patty's Day, or any other nations flag on their holiday's. I would bet not.

    I've worked with schools that have high numbers of students from around the world...they fly many flags. No one seems particularly bothered by it.

    Ya know, if I was attending school in Mexico, I wouldn't expect them to put up a US flag just so I'd feel at home.

    Also, I wouldn't pitch a fit and be offended if Mexicans IN Mexico were wearing the Mexican flag on July 4th.... it would be in THEIR country and Independence Day is MY holiday, so WTF would I care?

    OTOH expecting US to refrain from displaying the US flag on Cinco de Mayo, or putting up Mex flags in public schools... I mean dayum, does nobody see how nuts this is?

    Why do WE always have to be the ones to worry about offending people? Why do WE always have to be sensitive? Nobody else seems to give a flying frack if they offend US in some way.
