OUTRAGEOUS: AMERICAN FLAG DESECRATED AT MONTEBELLO HIGH SCHOOL
AS A FORMER RESIDENT OF THE WEST SAN GABRIEL VALLEY OF THE LOS ANGELES AREA, I AM DEEPLY SHOCKED AND AWED. SEE LINK BELOW. WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES. NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED.
In the meantime, Montebello HS staff deny that their students were involved in this incident. See below. In the bigger scheme of things, it really does not matter WHO did it. The fact that this act was perpetrated on a facility paid for by tax-payers is outrageous!
MONTEBELLO HIGH SCHOOL WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A CORRECTION
We have received many phone calls and E-mails about the reports that Montebello High School students put up a Mexican flag and took down the American flag this past Monday. MONTEBELLO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS DID NOT TAKE PART. Students from the El Rancho HIGH School District and the Whittier Union High School District took part in this action. Our Administration, Staff, and students do not condone this action. We hope this clarifies the situation.
