  1. These “stories” always leave out lots of detail:
    – What flags or symbols on t-shirts were “causing problems”?
    – What were the “problems” exactly?
    – Were the t-shirt wearers or others reacting to the t-shirts initiating “problems”?

    If someone gets violent and “triggered” by, say, an American flag then who is at fault? The t-shirt wearer or the “offended” person? If we let perpetually “offended” ppl control behavior of others it infringes on freedoms. Or is it school admin’s position to reward violence and ban any symbols violent students don’t like?

    I’m also curious if race is involved here. Media loves to report race in some stories but not others. Weird.
