    Everyone has valid points and opinions, but do your best not to personalize it towards each other. It is not helpful to you, them or any case you are trying to make. It surely won't move either party towards a compromise of understanding.
    Trying this nicely... everyone has valid points, don't turn this discussion into something it doesn't need to be.

    Indeed.

    Specifically, post number 25:

    Patrick: “Earl is probably a wanted felon hiding the the police.”

    I suppose it is easy to take the verbal high ground in discussions. Anybody can do it, and most do at some point - myself included.

    Sometimes the irony is so thick...it has to become funny. A former police officer - who by trade racially profiled - casting stones for calling a little prick a rat, and pointing out the "oh the horror" word of generalizing.

    Oh wait. It's the internet. Police officers and the racial profiling issues is only a generalization. I bet the police officers, ex police officers and current and former prison guards NEVER racially profiled anybody in their long careers.

    Hell, everybody does. The shambling stinking homeless mess of a human will cause a person to alter their course. So...that is an opportunity for someone to take the verbal moral high ground now in a discussion.

    Stating ones disgust about the obvious is simply ammo for a verbal moral high ground discussion.

    I think that HS kid is a little prick, and if there was any magical justice fairy that took orders from the generalizing mob of "fed ups" in our societies...I'd put in an order to punt his ass to Mexico permanently.
    DuckDuckGo is a leftist, Soros sponsored and financial contributor to the collective left. They are the proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. They present themselves as an option away from the corrupt Google, when in fact...they are only a contrived option that really just gives money, and takes money from our ideological enemies. Qwant appears to be an option. Spread the word.

    I realize liberals consider racial profiling a bad thing. They think profiling on any basis is a bad thing. In reality, it's called "playing the odds". Today, in Chicago, if a black man is shot on Saturday night, what are the odds that the shooter was another black man?

    Then there's the silliness of "driving while black". That's what the dickhead who was driving 20 mph over the limit in a school zone says when he gets a ticket. Now, to the reality. If I was in La Colonia at 2 a.m. and saw a new white BMW with four white yuppie kids in it I stopped them. Not because they were white but because I couldn't imagine any legitimate business they would have in La Colonia at 2 a.m. The same would go for a Ford low-rider with four cholos in the neighborhood surrounding the Country Club at 2 a.m.

    At the same time, I had good friends who were of Mexican descent. There were times I had to arrest someone in a Mexican bar and other patrons assisted me.

    Most kids grow up. As they grow they learn. Some don't. Most of the people I arrested were adolescents but most were well over the age of 21. How can you tell an adolescent? The first two clues are, "What about me," and "It isn't fair."

    So, the kids wasn't allowed to graduate with his class and that's fine. But, for some Canadian to whine that he should be kicked to Mexico, where he quite possibly has never been, is ludicrous. Not that it surprises me coming from one of them.

    Who cares what you think? I think he's a little prick, and, I would like to see his ass kicked to Mexico.

    I can say that, because I don't feel the need to portray a verbal moral high ground to anybody reading...you included. Especially you as a matter of fact.

    I agree with your appellation, “little prick.”

    Lest anyone consider that bigoted, my esposa is a Latina.

    Daily Bread expressed my thoughts perfectly.

    Mexico has never done anything noteworthy because its inhabitants don't produce , don't defend , have no honor , have no integrity .They come here because the tough work of building a successful country and the hard decisions on law and order and the backbone to maintain have been meticulously groomed and fought for in America .
    If won't fight for their land of birth - they won't fight for the beliefs this country is founded on .
    I'm tired of them coming here ,overweight , the best footwear and certainly not looking beaten up and complaining about how hard it is in their country . They come for an easy way out and the freebees.”

    Succinct...to the point.

    With the context of the millions who have ignored and violated our sovereignty and our immigration laws, Americans have a right to bear animosity to these invaders. They are NOT supposed to be here and that “little prick” can leave at any time.

    Hopefully, it does change, and we're allowed to wear whatever we want," he said. "I did what I had to do – represent, wear my flag and show my colors."

    He received a free education in America and “his” colors are the Mexican colors and he wore “his flag.”

    The”flag” of the United States is the American flag. Millions have fought and died to defend it.

Yes, he may have family in Mexico that his family in America helps support but that certainly isn't a reason to be proud.

    No, all the kids is doing is his parent's wishes. In your face America, he'll take all the benefits without the loyalty to the country that provided those opportunities. Opportunities his country he has an apparent love for never provided.

    I hope the school sticks to their guns but I doubt they will.
    Indeed!

    Trying to display the Mexican flag at his graduation is inappropriate and offensive in the current political and societal climate. But here's the bottom line from a common sense and old school pov. My HS principal would have him: you have a choice - wear what conforms to the dress code or you can't attend the graduation as a participant -you can pick up your diploma in the office afterward.

    On a personal note, the kid can go to Mexico if it's so bad here; perhaps he should get a bill for that "free" education the citizens of his state paid for. Kids do dumb things all the time. It's expected.

    i agree..if he earned his diploma, theres no reason he should not get it...

    he just hasnt "earned" the right to participate in a dog and pony show.

    he "earns" that right by following the dress code.

    nobodies making him do anything...he's refusing to comply..his choice.
