searched and didn't find a dup. I have no words. What is the country coming to?

Colorado high school student wants an explanation from school officials after reportedly being told by security guards to remove American flags from his truck because they might make other students uncomfortable.

Jeremy Stoppel told Denver's KMGH-TV hhttp://www.ar15.com/forums/manageTopic.html?b=1&f=5#e received a ticket at Northglenn High School last Thursday for squealing his tires and subsequently had his parking lot pass suspended for two weeks. But he also was told by a campus security guard to remove two U.S. flags –– each 3-by-5 feet –– from the bed of his pickup truck.

"She said I should take my flags down. She said this is a school that focuses on diversity and she doesn't want anyone to feel uncomfortable," Stoppel told KMGH-TV. "How do you suppose anyone would feel uncomfortable in America with an American flag? That's where I'm confused."

I believe half of the student's story. The other half sounds concocted to deflect the truth of the first half.

Northglenn Principal Lindimore - "We have 'em in the hallways upstairs. So we promote flying of American flags."

One asshole rent-a-cop making the school look bad... Well, "worse." Northglenn has problems

Remember before 9/11 when this was the case? Where flying the flag was considered a political statement and after 9/11 everyone libtards and conservatives came together with flying old glory? We had a few good years of resurgence.

Oh, that pesky first amendment thing again...it's got to be stopped.


I'd just tell them to go pound sand up their asses or prepare to be sued on First Amendment grounds, and go about my business.


Nobody will EVER make me stop flying any US flag I choose to fly!

Looks like the body of the article reads "should" remove flags, whereas the title of this thread reads "Told to".

A small, but significant, difference. I'm not getting fired up over some dumbass security guard and an equally dumbass student.

I hope the courts lay the smack down on these people individually instead of making the "system" pay. The USSC has already rules about the 1A in schools.

Not familiar with how public schools handle things, huh? "Should" turns into suspension and expulsion, champ. Pay attention.

I certainly support the First Amendment rights of people to display whatever they want.

However, in my experience, the people that drive around in big trucks with flags in the bed are full blown retards.

Someone should make a flag that has written in... Urdu "Some liberal will approve of this, not knowing what it says, because they think by accepting it, they will appease someone."

It is my opinion that flying a U.S. flag on a vehicle is bad form.

He wasn't suspended, "champ". Even after he peeled out in the parking lot.

For diversity sake they should give out a few A's to the people that sleep during class and a few F's to the over-achievers. Just trying to keep up with the sensitivity logic.

"Should" is the key. It was a suggestion, not a demand or quoting of law.
