CHAPIN, SC (WIS) -
At least one parent calls the actions of a Chapin High School English teacher disrespectful and unpatriotic.
The Lexington-Richland District 5 teacher is accused of throwing down the American flag and stomping on it in front of his honors English classes.
When Michael Copeland overheard his teenager talking about what her honors II English teacher did with the flag in their classroom, he pressed for details.
"He drew a couple of symbols, like one of them was a cross, and he said, 'What does this represent,' and everybody said, 'Christianity,'" said Copeland.
"Then he proceeds to take down the American flag, and said, 'This is a symbol, but it's only a piece of cloth. It doesn't mean anything,' and then he throws it down on the floor and then stomps on it, repeatedly."

Your hope is not the reality since obama has been president. My guess he will get a raise.
America sure is taking a lot of hits from the ungrateful piggies currently living here enjoying the good life. If they don’t like it, they really need to go look for a country to live in that suits their commie piggy lifestyle.
Couldn't agree more!
"There is a code of ethics for teachers that talks about professional conduct,
Though we're all guaranteed the right to free speech this teacher crossed that ethical line.
Now, Obama will have him appointed as Hagel’s right hand man since Hagel seems to think that the US is a aggressor/bully. I hope the parents protest this pathetic person ( to be fired) because he is supposed to be teaching the basics of education not passing indoctrination of his own beliefs/dislikes onto the students.
we need to bring back tarring and feathering
Bet they said to him “Well Mr. Smith you are the only one that has complained about this.” (parent intimidation training kicking in)
So how about Mr. Smith strolls down to the classroom and does to the teacher the same thing he did to the flag.
Now there is a good lesson to learn boys and girls. There can be consequences for actions.
This is a symbol, but it's only a piece of cloth. It doesn't mean anything.Hanging's too good for the a##hole.
I wonder how liberals would react if I were to desecrate the UN flag? With outrage, I’m sure.
Chapin High School NJROTC Ranks #1 in the Nation!
The Department of the Navy evaluated over 600 programs across the
country and Chapin High School was selected as
the 2012 Navy League Most Outstanding (BEST) Unit.
What would happen if a student-or anyone-threw a Koran,or an Islamic flag, down and stomped on it the same way? We all should start using these tactics and expect the same understanding and permission. DEMAND IT! One teacher? How about hundreds stomping the Koran in public?
Or burned a cross.....
No doubt about it, they’d have fits and go on about how wonderful the UN is.
Typical MSM - don’t name the teacher.
Probably more likely to become a regional director...
