My questions is if he is not happy with America and the American people, rather than disrespect America in front of our CHILDREN, WHY DON'T YOU LEAVE America and go to a country where he can be happy with the government and their way of life.
Yes of course, he is being disrespectful to our flag and our country! The people who demonstrate hate, they need to move on. They don't belong here!
I just wish these Darn fools would find a country where they would be more comfortable and go! They probably wouldn't be happy anywhere.
Criminal penalties for certain acts of desecration to the flag were contained in Title 18 of the United States Code prior to 1989. The Supreme Court decision in Texas v. Johnson; June 21, 1989, held the statute unconstitutional. This statute was amended when the Flag Protection Act of 1989 (Oct. 28, 1989) imposed a fine and/or up to I year in prison for knowingly mutilating, defacing, physically defiling, maintaining on the floor or trampling upon any flag of the United States. The Flag Protection Act of 1989 was struck down by the Supreme Court decision, United States vs. Eichman, decided on June 11, 1990.
While the Code empowers the President of the United States to alter, modify, repeal or prescribe additional rules regarding the Flag, no federal agency has the authority to issue 'official' rulings legally binding on civilians or civilian groups. Consequently, different interpretations of various provisions of the Code may continue to be made. The Flag Code may be fairly tested: 'No disrespect should be shown to the Flag of the United States of America.' Therefore, actions not specifically included in the Code may be deemed acceptable as long as proper respect is shown.

I remember, in my American Government class back in 1974, my teacher took the American flag down from where it was hanging near the blackboard and he laid it on the floor in the classroom to make a point. I forget what point he was trying to make but it wasn't an attempt to disrespect the flag. He said he had been in the military and it was hard for him to even lay it on the floor so I knew he would never step on it. Recently I saw a photo on Facebook of firefighters removing the American Flag from a house to protect it from flames encroaching on the house in a wildfire. Some people understand what the flag means and some don't, (Colin Kaepernick).
Yes. Men and women have Died for this country, it should be shown respect, and he's only teaching children disrespect to are Flag, if he hates it that much leave America or just keep he's disrespect to himself. I would fire him myself.
Yes they should because they are teaching our children to be disrespectful to our country that flag needs to be retired now because the flag is to never touch the ground
The very Flag the teacher is stomping on is the same Flag that give him the right to do it. America is not perfect but America is the best country in the world, especially when it comes to freedom.
Definitely, this is total disrespect for our country and all the flag stands for. This idiot should NEVER be allowed to teach again.
Fired, disgusting excuse for a "teacher" is this what you're teaching?? Wouldn't want you anywhere near my kids!!! This is maniac behavior, he needs professional help!!!
