That the following story happened in Texas makes it all the more disturbing.
Fifty-three years ago this month, an American president was assassinated in Dallas, an event that left a scar on the entire state. However, memories fade, real American history isn’t taught, and the results are, in this instance, deeply troubling.
Kayla Brandon reports for Independent Journal Review:
According to the San Antonio Express-News, two 10th grade students at John Marshall High School acted out a “mock assassination” of the billionaire businessman last week.
In the skit, titled “The Assassination of Donald Trump,” one student “shot” the other, who was dressed as Trump, with his cell phone, causing the teen to fall to the ground “dead.” (…)
Marshall High School parent Melinda Bean told the Express-News:
“Honestly I have run out of words to describe how angry I am and how shocked I am that they’re still in school today.”
In fairness, the teacher isn’t to blame in this instance. All students were required to get their skits pre-approved, but these students changed their plan without anyone’s knowledge.
Instead, maybe we should ask what kind of messages these students are getting at home — and of course, from the media.
