I heard this on the radio this morning, but I can't find any news reports about it, so take it with a big grain of salt. The story that I heard on the radio is that a local high school was playing a basketball game against a high school in Pueblo Colorado (I think that's about a 2 hour drive from Denver.) The local high school had provided a bus to transport kids to go watch the game. A couple of boys showed up wearing shirts that said "Border Patrol" on them, and were told that they could not get on the bus.
At some point the cops got involved, I don't remember why, but eventually the boys drove themselves to the game in Pueblo, and watched the game without incident.
According to the radio report, the boys were later suspended.
Here is a couple of articles on written by the school. One of them does mention the boys talking to the police, but it doesn't mention whether or not they really were suspended (not surprisingly - they wouldn't reveal that in a school newsletter I'm sure.)
Assuming that this all went down the way that it was reported on the radio, do you agree with the school's decision to not allow the boys on the bus, and then later suspend them?
To give a little bit of background, Pueblo CO has a pretty high hispanic population, which may or may not have led to the boy's decision to wear "Border Patrol" shirts to the game.
The argument that the radio commentator made was that the Border Patrol is an official law enforcement agency, so wearing those shirts should be no different than wearing a shirt that says "LAPD" or "Army Rangers" or whatever. Do you agree or disagree? Why or why not?
