From the linked article on the KFYI web site.
Apache Junction school officials say much of the information on KFYI and other media outlets since the March 31 incident have included erroneous information. Here's what the district says happened:
About 6:55 am, more than an hour before the U.S. flag is raised on the flagpole at the NJROTC building each day, three Hispanic students tried to raise a Mexican flag on the pole. Before they could get it fully attached, three Anglo students approached, took the flag down, and handed it to the Hispanic students, asking them to take it away. A few minutes later, two of the original three Hispanic students returned and again tried to raise the Mexican flag. Before they could do so, the Anglo students took the flag, threw it on the ground, and one of them lit it on fire.
At that point, school security officers intervened, separated the groups of students, and called police. According to a district spokeswoman, all six students have been suspended, and will have to go before a school hearing officer to determine whether they will face further discipline. No hearing dates have been set. Two students, one from each side, were arrested. The Hispanic student was arrested for "interfering with an educational institution" and the Anglo student was arrested for "reckless burning."
It is interesting that neither the Apache Junction Unified School District nor the Apache Junction High School has any mention of the incident on their web page.
I haven't seen a press release from the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona either. Why does that not surprise me. They support the rights of long-haired, maggot-infested, FM-radio-listening, anti-Americans who want to burn the Stars and Stripes. Why not the ROTC student who burned the mexican Flag. Doesn't he have constitutional right to free expression? Or does the ACLU only support anti-American causes?
