A high school in South Carolina that barred students from bringing American flags to sporting events after they were allegedly used to taunt Hispanic students from another school, has since reversed its decision.
Local news station WNCN reported earlier this week that Travelers Rest High School Principal Lou Lavely had decided to bar students from bringing the U.S. flag to football games, because some students were accused of taunting Hispanic students from Berea High as the two schools competed against each other on Friday night.
"Any decision to not allow the American flag to be used in an improper 'taunting,' unsportsmanlike manner is first and foremost in the interests of promoting the safety and well-being of all in attendance at school events," Lavely explained in his statement on Saturday. more >>

"Donald Trump isn't a politician — he's a one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment.

It's the working class against the smirking class," read the book's description on Amazon. more >>
Legal experts are expressing concerns over the recently approved revisions to the American Bar Association's misconduct rule, which some critics claim creates a "speech code" banning criticism of issues like gay marriage and Islam.
Earlier this month the ABA voted to toughen the language of Rule 8.4, which covers the matter of what constitutes harassing or discriminatory conduct.
Paul Rothstein, professor with the Georgetown University Law Center, told The Christian Post that while lawyers "can be held to a higher standard than others," the revised rule is "overly broad and runs the risk of being interpreted in a way that will stifle legitimate discussion and activity that is in the public interest." more >>
