    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican heritage celebration Cinco de Mayo, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on...

    Today’s Dariano v. Morgan Hill USD (9th Cir. Feb. 27, 2014) upholds a California high school’s decision to forbid students from wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The court points out that the rights of students in public high schools are limited — under the Supreme Court’s decision in Tinker (1969), student speech could be restricted if “school authorities [can reasonably] forecast substantial disruption of or material interference with school activities” stemming from the speech. And on the facts of this case, the court concludes, there was reason to think that the wearing of the T-shirts would lead...

    Three men were arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty on Friday after Morgan Hill police discovered a goat hog-tied in the trunk of their car, a police sergeant said. A patrol officer pulled over the car after the driver cut him off on Monterey Road near San Pedro Avenue, Morgan Hill police Sgt. Jerry Neumayer said. The driver, 40-year-old Ciro Paredes of Morgan Hill, did not have a driver's license, and the officer smelled alcohol in the vehicle, according to Neumayer. During a search of the car, the patrol officer found open beer cans and plastic bags filled with what...

    MORGAN HILL, Calif. -- Heated words were spoken Wednesday night at a packed school board meeting in Morgan Hill as parents railed against administrators in charge of the high school where a controversy over students wearing American flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo erupted last week. Wednesday will mark one week since a Cinco de Mayo incident at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill flared up into a national story when four boys came on campus wearing t-shirts with the American flag and patriotic colors. From what occurred at a public meeting of the school board Tuesday night, it...

But on Saturday, fueled by national media coverage of the incident at Live Oak High School, dozens of additional protesters appeared dressed in red, white and blueto express anger over the boys' treatment.

    California schools really do hate America. In California apparently you are a bad little boy if you wear to school clothing adorned with the good ol' Red, White and Blue. You get thrown out, in fact. At least that is what happened to several patriotic American boys that attend Comunidad Educativa Vivo Roble in California… oh, wait, that is the Live Oak High School in California. With all the dissing of America going on in California I thought the school had changed its name. Sorry. For the Gilroy Dispatch Lindsay Bryant reports that five young students of Live Oak High...

Around 10 a.m., the assistant principal told sophomore Matthew Dariano he had to remove his bandana, which is against school policy.

    POLL Should the display of an American flag be banned, even if a school administrator feels that display could lead to fights? No. This is a lame decision. Teach the kids what the flag means, instead of banning it. Yes. The safety of students comes first. Not sure, but of all things to ban, the American flag would seem the least 'incendiary.'

    Tensions are rising at a California high school where five students were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. More than 200 Hispanic students reportedly skipped class on Thursday and marched to school district headquarters while chanting "we want respect" and "si se puedes" -- "yes we can" -- the Morgan Hill Times reported. "We did this to support the Latino/Hispanic community," Francine Roa, a 2005 Live Oak High School graduate, told the newspaper. At least six Morgan Hill police vehicles traveled alongside the students, many of whom carried Mexican flags. No arrests were made related...

    Sure, it all makes sense. Why should American kids be allowed to wear T-shirts with the American flag printed on them in America? Thankfully one high school administrator was equally outraged and sent the offenders home for it. Five kids attending Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., decided to wear patriotic clothing (T-shirts and bandannas with the American flag on them) on Cinco de Mayo. Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez told them that the clothing was inappropriate for the holiday and to ditch the bandannas and turn their shirts inside out or go home. The kids chose option B....

    Let us grant that the four boys at Live Oak High School who wore American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo were not behaving sensitively toward their Latino classmates. Let us acknowledge that they were immature, even offensive, when they picked a Mexican national holiday to exhibit their patriotism. It was a more subtle message than the Border Patrol T-shirts that some kids tried wearing in the San Jose Unified District. But given our battles over immigration, it was not a wholly friendly message. Let us grant all that. It was still a mistake for an assistant principal to ask...

    Many dozens of patriots turned out this morning in Morgan Hill, CA. Waving US flags, holding signs, and listening to patriotic music, a lively group of patriots gathered at a downtown intersection earlier today. (My estimate of the mid-morning crowd size was 80-100.) There were people lining both sides of the street as well as a good number in the median strip. The drivers of many of the cars driving through flashed thumbs-up and honked their horns. Music is being provided by a Patriot Guard Rider on his motorcycle. He has been cruising through the area repeatedly for the past...

    The American Thinker ^ | May 08, 2010 | J.C. Arenas
    Mexican-American students at a school in Morgan Hill, California have feigned outrage because a group of students outfitted themselves in bandannas and t-shirts designed with the American flag on them on Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday. Unfortunately, these students have demonstrated they are more American than Mexican, even though they would like us to believe otherwise. Cinco de Mayo is not even considered a national holiday in Mexico, it's a regional holiday mostly celebrated in the state of Puebla, which means there are Mexicans, who actually live in the country, who don't necessarily celebrate it. Americans for some reason...

Officials at the school could not be reached for comment, but one student said administrators called the T-shirts "incendiary."

The five teens were sitting at a table outside during their brunch break around 10:10 a.m. when Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez asked two...

    A Cyber-Attack on an American City Bruce Perens Just after midnight on Thursday, April 9, unidentified attackers climbed down four manholes serving the Northern California city of Morgan Hill and cut eight fiber cables in what appears to have been an organized attack on the electronic infrastructure of an American city. Its implications, though startling, have gone almost un-reported. That attack demonstrated a severe fault in American infrastructure: its centralization. The city of Morgan Hill and parts of three counties lost 911 service, cellular mobile telephone communications, land-line telephone, DSL internet and private networks, central station fire and burglar alarms,...

Four AT&T fiber-optic cables in an underground vault were severed shortly before 1:30 a.m. along Monterey Highway north of Blossom Hill Road in south San Jose, police Sgt. Ronnie Lopez said.
