re: #148 Locker

It’s not up to you to decide if a particular piece of clothing and situation is provocative enough to send a kid home or make a correction. It’s up to the person tasked with the job, the principal. His job isn’t to uphold someone’s constitutional right to piss of their neighbor, it’s his job to keep the peace.

This isn’t some random person or student picked on for wearing a flag. This is a principal spotting potential trouble and taking action. It doesn’t matter if it’s an American flag, Rebel flag, red or blue bandana or whatever. It’s about the context, the intent and the situation.

Show me something in the article that indicates that the kids wearing the American flags were going to cause trouble.
