A teacher in Illinois is under investigation after stomping on the American flag.
According to DailyCaller, the teacher was using the flag as a pointer and a student thought this was disrespectful. Students say this caused the teacher to get very mad and stomp on the flag.
“He talked about it being the right to do whatever he wants. That’s why it was there so he could do whatever he wants, but we have no idea why he would actually take it down and basically start all this,” a student told Tristate Homepage.
After word on the flag-stomping incident spread, angry parents and community organizers protested outside of Martinsville Junior-Senior High School. They paraded with the flag up and down front entrance.
WTHI-TV reports that the school has placed the teacher on leave for the remainder of the school year. The teacher's name isn't being released.
