Student says ‘ISIS’ in Pledge, gets pulled from high school

by AP  |  published on January 21, 2016

A Connecticut high school student has been pulled out of classes and reported to police for substituting “ISIS” for the “United States of America” during the Pledge of Allegiance.

“ISIS” is a term commonly used for the Islamic State group.

Lt. Andrew Cota says the 15-year-old student at Ansonia High School wasn’t charged, but the case was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security. Police say there is no danger to the community. Federal officials declined to comment.

    the way the young are going in blind to dangerous things … maybe the schools should pay close attention and stop harm before it grows…

    I don’t know why they earmarked this kid, nothing less than Obama has done in his support for the Brotherhood and his perpetual not calling ISIS and terrorist Jiahadest terrorists. I’m almost sure this kid does need counciling but most likely he’s the school clown and thought it would be funny and brash. Turning him over to the DHS is a little much. Oh well schools reap what they sew, the chickens are coming home to roost.
