A skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump by two 10th-grade students at Marshall High School provoked anger and dismay from the parents of a student who watched it unfold last week.
Harold and Melinda Bean said that in the skit, entitled The Assassination of Donald Trump, one of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cell phone as the other boy, portraying Trump, fell to the ground in mock death.
I dont understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning, he said. Though we understand she is apologetic, it does not make the situation right.
Perez said campus officials investigated the incident and found that the teacher didnt condone it and stopped the skit. But Harold Bean questioned why she allowed it to start once she heard the title.
Appropriate action was taken to reprimand both boys and their teacher, said Northside ISD spokesman Barry Perez. The parents, however, believe more should have been done, including suspending the two students.
Honestly I have run out of words to describe how angry I am and how shocked I am that theyre still in school today, Melinda Bean said.
Younger children using their hands to simulate guns on the playground have been suspended, she said, and this was far worse.
The teacher apologized Monday, Harold Bean said, but it wasnt enough.

Totally encouraged by the current anti-Trump mania from the left and the Dem party in general.
Fire the teacher, expel the students. Nothing less.
They told me if I voted for Trump, there would be calls to assassinate the President elect and they were right.
And the Media.
Would they ever do that about Barack? About a putative president Hillary?
They might want to look at why they are so mad at Donald. A lot of parochial applecarts are getting upset, true, but still....
Run the same play and install bammy’s name. We’ll see how “ok” it is.
Enjoy your jail sentences! They’ll love your role playing in prison.
Also... they might call this “The New Presidency of Mike Pence.” From their viewpoint that would take them from frying pan to fire!
seeing more.n.more articles w/the A word in association w/the name TRUMP....old saying: there are no coincidences??????
Gunny G @ Planet WTF!
Semper President TRUMP !!!!!!!!!!
The teacher and school administration that allowed this along with his/her school superior who condoned should be fired. Additionally, the two children should be expelled, IMO.
This is nothing but wanton hate that justifies harsh punishment. Frankly, it is incitement to criminality.
Could you imagine if this was done about the current potus? What the outrage from the left would be?
This is treason.
No more, no less.
So, a couple of kids openly portray shooting the president with a cell phone pretending it’s a gun, and another kid gets in trouble for pointing a Pop Tart at someone.
The extent of the anti-Trump movement in to the classroom is astounding. Once upon a time, educators would never have allowed such a thing. Seems like they encourage it now. Without remorse or repercussions. We got some work to do.
The headline should have been:
“Hatred of Trump Trumps Zero Tolerance”
Just to troll the left I think I need to make some creepy videos of kids singing songs about how Trump is gonna save us.
Threatening the President is a federal offense. Start enforcing it.
secret service need to talk to these people
Two weeks ago educators would never have allowed such a thing...
