Publishers Notes: Salisbury News did not make a mistake in our original article. Perhaps this student, (and others) were not aware that another situation had happened, all of which are unfortunate.

A Viewer Writes: Gay Flags At Bennett High School
On Friday April 21st at Bennett high school students were threatened with suspension for having a gay flag wrapped around them. You reported that it was a rainbow flag which was false. One student has made a Facebook post which now has over 100 shares. We would love for awareness for what happened at Bennett high but we wish what you posted was true. Students were rudely made to break their oath of silence by talking to the admiration about how it was "teacher dress as student day not gay day" and their flag was taken. When a different student who owned the flag went to get it back they were told that they were offending other students and their for couldn't have it. That student was then pulled out of class multiple times during the day to be told how if it were a kkk shirt it would be made to be taken off also. They then told the student that if they were being threaten by other student why would they then still go around with their flag. The students, with the flag, through out the day had been called "faggot" and told "this is America the straight" and they were threatened with suspension and not they students who threatened them? This is the news we would like shared not the story you were told third hand. I was there and I was part of this all. Thank you.
