    Since when can teachers confiscate legal personal property and throw it in the garbage?

    Since for ever. But he did not throw it in the "trash" he put it in the can because that was what was available, which leads me to believe it was an EMPTY can.

    Idaho, at least the Panhandle, is full of a lot of racist white people. The Teacher probably did save the kid from a beating.

    I'm sure the teacher would have behaved exactly the same way if the kid had an American flag. :rolleyes:

    He wouldn't have been worried if the kid had an American flag. Context is your friend.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't assume the Teacher is not also a racist, I am noting the fact that his actions were probably based on the REALITY of the situation in this specific case. But you liberal pin heads are free to pretend the real world and what happens in it does not matter.

    What does nanny state have to do with this incident? I don't see anything in the article about supporting people with handouts comprised of my tax dollars until they feel entitled to them and forget how to think for themselves.
