Four students today got suspended from Adolfo Camarillo High School for wearing their American Flag Headbands to the basketball game. The administrators said it could be viewed as "offensive" and they were asked to leave. After they stood outside in protest of the administrators, with pride for their country, they decided to run back into the game and the whole crowd began to shout "USA! USA!" In honor of the students. Then the students were forced out of the gym, suspended for five days, and not allowed back on school grounds.
I am not familiar with the rules at this particular school, but I know that every school I have been to does not allow bandanas for any reason because they are veiwed as gang related and offensive, no matter if they are patriotic or not. I think the fact that when the boys were asked to leave they stood outside in protest and then ran back into the game warrants them being suspended. Not because they were "supporting America" but because they went in direct violation of what they were asked to do. I doesn't matter if the crowd supported them or not.
