Wow. This is pretty stupid. Let's give teachers another across-the-board raise.
So here we have the Principal and the Vice-Principal of an American high school treating the Stars and Stripes as if it was a gang bandanna; even worse, the school administrators took sides in this imaginary US-vs.-Mexico gang fight by allowing the widespread display of Mexican flags on campus but banning (under threat of punishment) any display of the American flag.
NBC quotes a fellow student:
"I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day," Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. "We don't deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July."

A disturbing report from Zombie-- as it appears that some public school students in California have been reprimanded by the school administration for allegedly-- wearing American flag t-shirts in school. I know that you're surprised that they're not in jail, but if you can stomach the terrible details, I'll present them to you.
