Just one more case of the liberal media trying to skew a story. Recently media outlets have been reporting about the arrest of an 11-year-old student in Lakeland, FL. They claim he was arrested for refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Here’s the truth on the matter.
The event started when a sixth grade boy refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. The black student told his substitute teacher that the flag was racist and that the national anthem was offensive to black people as he refused to stand.
The substitute, who is an immigrant from Cuba, tried to reason with the boy. When that conversation went nowhere, school officers where called to remove the disruptive boy from the classroom.
It was then that the boy refused to comply, threatening officers and teachers alike that he would have them fired. He even went so far as to threaten the substitute teacher with violence.
That was when he was arrested and charged with disrupting a school function and resisting arrest without violence.
Of course the liberal media would have you think this sweet cherub was simply trying to exercise his right to free speech, not making threats to hit people before he hit puberty.
