  • I was so disappointed with the adults involved in this incident and so very proud of David Morales and his patriotism with regards to his hat honoring our soldiers. Today I was very happy to read that Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio gave David a medal for honoring veterans and soldiers. David also received a certificate that allows him to call himself a brigadier general. I hope the adults in charge of the Tiogue School have learned something from a second grader at their school. He shows far more wisdom than they do. David Morales deserves a heartfelt apology in front of the entire school. Will the administration "man up'' and do it? I hope that is the next thing I read in the paper about this little boy ... that adults can admit they made a mistake.

  • Educators as leaders without common sense. It's obvious and reasonable to expect this type of stupidity amongst our educators and their lack of patriotism since many are far left wing liberals who never served a day in the military and went to school on government grants.

  • A toothpick sized piece of plastic is not a weapon. By this standard all pens pencils and scissors should be banned as well...and if a student sticks out his thumb and forefinger he should be tackled by a swat team and jailed. How utterly ridiculous can a school administrator get.

  • The decision this school made regarding little David Morales' hat makes each and every school in that county and for that fact, the entire state of Rhode Island, look like a bunch of morons that have absolutely NO common sense.

    You should be ASHAMED!!!

  • Never heard of Tiogue Elementary before, but now I know it's a nutty Rhode Island institution that penalizes kids for harboring toy soldiers, something that kids have done since time immemorial.

  • As for the schools administrators stance of no tolerance regarding the cap which the young man made to honor the Us Military, I think Will Rogers summed it up best. "When ignorance gets started it knows no bounds."
    Let's enforce rules for what they are intended and that is to keep the children safe and unharmed. The tiny toys with their weapons posed no threat. The child is far smater than the principal in this case.

  • I served in the Air Force four years and I am honored that one of our younger generation wants to show his support for our soldiers in this trying times. (...) just made a bad decision with the hat, he should have worn full military attire including the weapon and then the principal would have had a legitimate reason to confront him. When I went to school, it was no big deal for students to have hunting rifles in their truck, provided it was in a gun rack and displayed it in plain sight. What happen did I wake up in Russia this morning?

  • I have been in education for over twenty years in a variety or capacities and I have yet to work with anyone as incompetent and outright dangerous to our system of education as these idiots serving as instructors and administrators of this school. With such bufoons in charge of educating our young, there is little wonder why our educational system is so poor. Not only should the instructor, the principal and the superintendent be terminated, there licenses to function as educators should be taken by the state. "Educators" like these give all of us in education a black eye. Our educational system will improve when we stop being politically correct and hire real educators instead of professional tree huggers and paper pushers.

  • You people should not be considered Americans. Guns helped gain our freedom, and unfortunately protect the freedom of worthless humans such as you. Wishing all those involved death and dispair.

  • I am a US Marine and a combat veteran. How can you teach this child not to respect and show no patriotism toward our HERO's. It is because of the veterans that we have the freedom we do. This action by the school board is appalling and outrageous. Maybe the school board should make a trip overseas and learn how to respect and appreciate the American Hero and the freedom that we have as AMERICANS.....

  • Are you kidding me? A plastic toy soldier? You really need to examine your priorities! By the way, it's the soldiers with the real guns that allow you to keep that school going! Why do we continually try to fool our children with pie in th sky "It's a Village" concepts?

  • My grandson is 4th generation military and has served time in Afghanistan. Son has served in Afghanistan, Iraq and Desert Storm. I find your ruling on this students hat absolutley rediculous. You're carrying your school policy way to far..I think the principal is having a God complex/ego trip...or whatever. How dumb on your part and a slap in the face to all our military that defend this country and our rights. As someone said...they don't defend it by holding hands with the enemy...they do it with weapons. But then, I suppose you'd rather have them try to shake hands with the enemy and got shot.

  • I am developing a zero tolerance for moobs that cannot distinguish viable threats from tiny plastic toys. What a way to engender feelings of patriotism and respect in a young child. You all need to remember that those he sought to honor have, by their sacrifice in blood, guaranteed his absolute right to freely express himself in word, deed, or symbol. Shame, shame upon you. If I could, I would slap you stupid-- Oh, I forget, you are already stupid.

  • Your leadership is seriously deficient in common sense. Your whole school district should be ashamed of itself for trying to make a political statement at the expense of child. A toy soldier is not a weapon. It is a toy, nothing more.

  • it is the soldier not the poet who gives us the freedom of speech
    it is the soldier not the minister who gives us freedom of religion
    it is the soldier no the reporter who gives us freedom of the press
    it is the soldier not the campus organizer that gives us the right to protest. that's right,all of you politically ignorant buffoons at the tiogue school. the same ones that you prevented a 8 year old from displaying his pride in them. orwell said"we sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm. i am a retired veteran of 26 years of loyal and honorable service to this country. after reading about young mr morales i wonder if it was all worth it. a word to the principal: we defeat our enemies with weapons. we don't hold hands with them singing "kumbayah".

  • As a Navy retiree I am apalled by the stupidity of this school's principal to ban a Patriotic hat designed by a student because it portrayed soldiers carying weapons. Why anyone would want their kid to attend this narrow minded school is beyond me!

  • they made a kid take a hat off that he made to honor soldiers, because the small army men on it had guns. This went against their zero tolerance policy. they went too far and should be more than ashamed.
