Principal to contact FBI after student throws U.S. flag


ESPANOLA, N.M. (KRQE) - A middle school principal said a student was misbehaving with his friends and took things too far. The student threw an American flag out a second-story classroom window. Now the principal says the 14-year-old needs to be held accountable, but some parents say the punishment is too harsh.

“I guess I can’t believe they’re going to take such extreme measures,” said Curtis Schattschneider.

Parents and community members in Española are surprised both at what a Carlos F. Vigil Middle School student did and the punishment he’s getting.

“I am trying to hold him accountable,” said Principal Robert Archuleta.

Archuleta said four students started throwing grammar workbooks and erasers out a classroom window last month. One of the eighth grader students took it a step farther by tossing an American flag out into the snow.

“He says, ‘Because I was just messing around,’ and he started to laugh,” Archuleta said. “Then the other kids were laughing, the kids that were with him. ‘There goes the flag.’ That was his last statement.”

The principal is a veteran. His father is also a veteran who fought in World War II.

Thirteen-year-old Cody Alicea was told by school officials he couldn’t fly an American flag on his bike…Not so fast, said his whole community! Watch what happens when a single American child is told to put his flag away because it may offend others.
