The mass refusal to stand for the pledge and American flag is reaching new levels of frustration.
One teacher took matters into her own hands with a student who chose to sit during the daily Pledge of Allegiance and has since been put on administrative leave. What did she do? Attempted to pick the child up and force him to stand for the pledge.
This is just a prime example of the mounting frustration most patriots are feeling over the new trend to sit or kneel through what should be a respectful recognition of our country and the men and women who have fought for the rights some seem to take for granted. The student and his parent maintain that recognizing the flag and country is a form of abomination to God. Is it going too far?
LAFAYETTE, Colo. — A teacher at Angevine Middle School in Lafayette is under investigation for an allegation she assaulted a student who refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, according to the Lafayette Police Department.- According to KDVR.

Dear Angevine Middle School Families,
I hope everyone is having a good evening.
I am reaching out to you tonight to let you know that we will have a substitute teacher working with some of our PE classes for the time being.
While I cannot share much information, following an incident today at school, Ms. Smith was placed on paid administrative leave. We are working closely with our partners at the Lafayette Police Department. We believe in due process and therefore ask that everyone respect Ms. Smith’s privacy at this time.
We are dedicated, as always, to supporting our students and ensuring that we have qualified educators working with them during their physical education time.
Thank you for your patience and support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Medina said in a statement that he could not discuss details of the incident but confirmed the school was working with police. He also said a substitute teacher would fill in for Smith.
FOX 31 reported the department was still conducting interviews and gathering information on the alleged incident.
The Boulder Valley School District has a policy allowing students to decide if they want to stand or sit during the Pledge of Allegiance.
