    I found this curious. The school being threatened even more (with a shooting) if they don't give the kid his diploma. Way to go!

    Are you trying to make a point? You ask me a question and answered it to the best of my ability. You ignored my answer and went to a question I asked.

    When I was fired by an incompetent police chief he said I had to come back the next day. I laughed and said, "You just fired me. I don't have to do a damn thing."
    "Well, I will have a letter for you."
    "If this the one where you say if I'll go peacefully you give me money? How much?"
    "$75,000."
    I laughed again. I leaned across the table and the coward backed up and I said, "The Irish have been fighting the English for 600 fucking years. I'll fight you till hell freezes over."

    Three years later the city wanted to settle. I demanded a public apology. When asked what I meant by public I said, "Television would work." They offered to double the money they'd give me, significantly more than $75,000, and give me my job back permanently if I would skip the public apology.

    I said, "No."

    The powers that were apologized on television. There was an English saying, "Don't fight with an Irishman or a pig. You'll get dirty and they enjoy it."

    Yes, I'm proud of being of Irish descent. Proud enough that I don't tell tacky Polish jokes or Jewish jokes or black jokes or Mexican jokes. Everyone has a right to be proud except Democrats, leftists, and dickheads.

    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.

    Fair enough. I will be a gentleman and attempt to honor this code. However, I will bite back when I'm personally attacked and labeled incorrectly and unjustly for my opinions--even though I refrained from doing so in this thread. I cannot promise to do so in the future with this individual.

    One thing, either way, is that FACTS are important. And actions always trump words. OTOH, not one of us is worthy to judge another, which is something learned the hard way.

    As for the OP, we shall see just how this plays out...

    Yup ! My point was they don't want to invest the time and energy and sacrifices to make their own country great - they want to live the good life off our backs . If they're so damned good that take some pride and commitment and make their own country good .

    Obviously, you have no knowledge or expertise regarding America's Latino community. You are a bigoted racist, with what, less than 400 posts on file?

    When you do some research on, oh, something like probable cause - a legal term needed to detain someone - instead of just saying he needs a psych evaluation, and is shooting up schools, perhaps some people will take you seriously. Meanwhile - to me you are just racist, with no life experiences relating to Latino's and probably, we will discover, not much else.

    You're generalizing just like him and you know it. We all do it at some point but most understand its because of the heat of the moment and in that context .

    That wouldn't go well up here on Long Island and we have our share of illegals on my block . There's 20 light poles on my street and there's been 20 American flags on brackets that we keep up and maintain 365 days a year . Virtually every American also flys their own Flag from the front of the house . A Marine/ Suffolk Cop moved in about 15 years ago and started the light poll flags and now we all maintain them and keep them displayed correctly . Even the Mexicans are putting them up now .
    I live in a great neighborhood .

    I agree, it was a reasonable action to take at a very organized and serious ceremony. But it is only a HS kid.
    Withholding his diploma at the graduation ceremony - fine - ok - that ceremony is over. But the kid earned a HS diploma and he should be given it now - the school has no right to withhold it from him since he met the criteria to earn it. If they are not giving it to him to punish him for his actions at the graduation ceremony, those school officials are bums.

    I actually dont mind most of them, they keep to themselves and don't bother you. They tend to travel in packs when walking but I think that is for safety.

    The work buses are all old school buses, on Sunday they all take them shopping.
    We don't have to move to Mexico when they are coming here.
