U.S. Flag – Dangerous To Your Health?

Apparently it’s now “too dangerous for students to wear an American flag” on their shirts to certain schools. In America. According to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

This case involves kids who were wearing shirts, with the U.S. flag as a part of the design,  to their high school in Morgan Hill, California – south of San Jose. According to the San Jose Mercury News, the five boys wore the shirts on Cinco De Mayo in 2010. There had been threats between Latino and Anglo students at the school before (but no real problems), but on that day, school officials told the five boys to turn their shirts inside out – or go home. So they went home and their parents complained to the school. The case has been in the court system since then. The 9th Circuit Court said Thursday in their ruling (that sided with the school), that safety concerns outweighed the students FIRST AMENDMENT CLAIMS! The parents say they’ll now take this to the Supreme Court.
