According to Theblaze.com: “He said, ‘We’re having some issues. Some people were complaining about the flags in your truck,’” Robinson told WBTV-TV. He said the administrator said the flags could “possibly” be offensive, and told Robinson to take them down before coming back on the school grounds.
Peyton went on to explain that at some point Wednesday, a school official unscrewed the bolts that secured the flags to his truck and laid them in the bed “when I wasn’t even there.”
Later that same day, officials conveniently announced that flags such as Robinson’s are safety concerns. Superintendent Vernon Prosser told WSOC-TV the fear is that they could block the view of other drivers and cause a wreck.
As you can imagine, the senior, who himself had family members in the military, was not about to go gently into that good night. ”I was pretty mad,” he told WBTV. “I don’t see how it’s a problem. Nobody has ever complained about it before.”
