School Security Orders CO Teen to Remove American Flags From Pickup Truck

News

"She said this is a school that focuses on diversity and she doesn't want anyone to feel uncomfortable."

Jeremy Stoppel is man enough to admit that he deserved getting a ticket for squealing his tires in the school parking ticket. But he has a problem with the order that came down from school security -- no more American Flags. He told KMGH-TV:

"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 said. "How do you suppose anyone would feel uncomfortable in America with an American flag? That's where I'm confused."

Jeremy and his dad told the station they are looking for an apology:

"To me, she's just threatening him, hoping that she can just bully him so he'll just take 'em down and just put his tail between his legs and say, 'I'm done. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.' And that's just not gonna happen," said Dan Stoppel, Jeremy's father.

The principal is promising to look into the matter. Stay tuned.
