The kid’s father and stepmother are in law enforcement.
A substitute teacher went insane on Lucas Lillar, a 13-year-old 8th grader, because he wore a Thin Blue Line face mask.
The incident took place at California’s Lyman Gilmore Middle School in Grass Valley. Other students took video of it.
Lillar’s father and stepmother are law enforcement members.
This teacher sat behind Lillar in math class and tried to provoke an argument like a child:
TEACHER: “That’s not the American flag. That’s the new Confederacy flag.”
REPORTER (voice-over): “That’s the substitute teacher Amanda McCallum said provoked this verbal altercation in her son’s math class.”
TEACHER: “No, it’s black, white with some blue line in it.”
LILLAR: “Yeah, thin blue line.”
TEACHER: “Yeah, but it’s not American.”
LILLAR: “It’s American.”
Lillar said he has never had a teacher yell in his face before.
The school told Lillar and his family that the substitute teacher will not teach at the school again.
Superintendent Andrew Withers told CBS13 the district is investigating the matter, but that he can’t make more comments: “The California Education Code §44953 allows for the immediate dismissal of a substitute teacher. Our district expects all educators to perform their duties with utmost respect and professionalism.”DONATE
