From the “You did what……why???? department…..
According to this Yahoo!News story, Clint Straatman, a PE teacher at Minico High School in Rupert, ID, took a Mexican flag from a student…
because “white kids” might have hurt the 16-year-old.
But wait…..it gets better…..
He said he put it in a garbage can because he had no place else to keep it.
¡Muy, muy malo!
Camelo had brought the flag to school, as did other students, in celebration of Cinco de Mayo….
Straatman insists that the student, Froylan Camelo, was waving the flag in the gym and then never asked for it back. He feels that maybe the student’s ‘poor english skills’ caused a misunderstanding….
But Camelo’s version differs greatly…that he was in the locker room when the flag was demanded of him…that he was told “The problem is that we are in the United States, not Mexico” when he asked what the problem was…that when he asked for the flag back, Straatman asked “What, the U.S. flag?”
Camelo has been contacted by the ACLU….the district is investigating…you know, the usual….
From gym teacher to president, there’s a reason why some people seek positions of authority……the very reasons that they SHOULDN’T HAVE AUTHORITY!!!!
I don’t know whether to cry, or break something……….
