Creston students disciplined for photo suggestive of KKK

Creston students disciplined for photo suggestive of KKK”

A group of Iowa high school students are being disciplined for posting a photo on social media depicting them burning a cross while wearing white hoods, according to WHO.

The photograph, which made the rounds via web-based networking media on Wednesday, demonstrates five individuals remaining in a field wearing white, pointed hoods, looking like Ku Klux Klan robes. One of the participants is holding a rifle with a scope on it, and another is holding a red flag that may be a Confederate flag.

Creston school administrators and community leaders called the photo embarrassing, but many people are questioning if the students should be punished because the incident happened off school grounds. Messerole said school authorities met with the understudies. None of the students have been identified.

Bevins told the Des Moines Register: 'That picture does not represent the beliefs of our school system, our parents or our community'. The school also will not say what punishment the students received.

"As a current student at Creston and a member of the football team, I would just like to make a statement". "I would say that picture does not reflect the values of Creston High School, our school district or our community whatsoever".

Creston Police Chief Paul Ver Meer told the Omaha World-Herald his department was made aware of the controversial photo, however, they have not been a part of the investigation. A person who answered the phone at the police department Wednesday afternoon referred questions from The Associated Press to Union County Sheriff Rick Piel.

Piel said there has all the earmarks of being nothing for law implementation to examine. "We've addressed the region lawyer, and we can't think of a charge".

Creston is a city of more than 7,800 about 70 miles (112.65 kilometers) south of Des Moines.

"I was nauseated", Cheers said in a telephone meet.

International Business Times could not find the post where the students would have shared the photo. "It's disgusting, I absolutely despise them for it now". Creston, he said, is a "loving" community.

"It's quite recently dismal that one picture can destroy our notoriety".
