Regarding the Sept. 21 news article “History teacher who ‘stomped’ on American flag during class is suspended”: If you are young or don’t recall well American reaction to the Vietnam War, you will not remember American protesters of the war burning the American flag and spitting at American soldiers when they returned from the war. Just ask older veterans.
And now we are throwing criticism at a teacher as he demonstrates that in this country we have exactly the right to do such things. If we lived in Russia or North Korea we would not have that right and instead be jailed or worse. Is that what you would have the United States do?
You have every right to disagree with what the teacher did. But he has every right to do it, and evidently it was a very effective way to show students the beauty of the rights we have in this country.
