A student in Scottville is upset after he says he was banned from his high school for the rest of the year after displaying a Confederate flag...

In a Facebook statement, Travis Barrette writes:

"Today I was banned from Mason County Central School campus, for the rest of the school year for flying an American Confederate Flag. I cannot walk on school ground etc. But yet im not expelled so how am i supposed to do my schooling. Please everyone share this to have everyone aware that they will kick you out of school for using your Constitutional rights! They are fully ready and willing to violate your rights amended by our founding fathers. I guess thats what happends when you dont follow the politcal correctness of your school, and being patriotic following our heritage."

  1. I only want to throw firecrackers, but also throwing bombs. They threw firecrackers in order to attract the attention of others, confuse the enemy; throwing bombs is my real purpose. However, I can not tell you when I threw firecrackers, when throwing bombs. The game is to falsehoods, so just happy. If you feel pain in the game, it means you play the wrong.

  2. Well he wanted a reaction and got it. Though the school's response was somewhat extreme instead of using it as a teaching method that school grounds was not an appropriate place for it. Instead they may be creating another drop-out.

  3. Brandon, did you make any effort to confirm this? Or do you just consider anything posted on the internet to be true?
