Those gangs recruit YOUNG in Denver
LOL. 18 also represents “chai” in Hebrew and is an auspicious number for Jews. He should call out the school district for being anti-Semitic :) God forbid a kid wears a jersey of the star quarterback of his city - leave it to an unaccountable bureaucrat to turn it into a problem.
Wow....there is a much bigger problem here than a third grader wearing a banned number...on a shirt ...
Too think parents actually send their children to a school were gang problems are so persuasive that three different numbers and their opposing positions like 18 and 81 are banned even in elementary school because they are gang numbers ???
Are you kidding me...? My children would have never set foot in that school...
Where are the public school officials? Where is the PTA ?
I know they are checking off their union membership cards...
I had a business in Greeley. The 18th street gang tagged (spraypainted) my building a couple of years back. Dirty little pricks. You have a town with a huge illegal population and gangs are a big problem. Good for the school, they should stomp on those gang members and anything associated with them.
If a school tried that here in Indianapolis the streets would be lined with torches and pitchforks. I think they used to send southside Indy kids home for NOT wearing Manning Jerseys...but on home games.
How come she wasn’t at the convention pimping Baraq?
She was working.
