Montebello Flag Incident II

The upside-down flag incident at Montebello H.S. now has an official apologist ... er, make that "official liar." From the Whittier Daily News:

In Montebello, officials sought to clarify Tuesday that no Montebello High School students were involved in an incident Monday in which an American flag was hung upside down, below a Mexican flag.

"We'd like to make it clear that at the time that incident happened, Montebello High was in lockdown and our students were inside the school," said Robert Henke, assistant superintendent of student and community services and spokesman for the Montebello Unified School District.

Really? All of them? Every last one? I wonder who all those high school aged students in the photo below are? (photo from Michelle Malkin's site) Just a bunch of nicely dressed day laborers from down the street?

We can find out, you know, simply by checking how much money the school lost yesterday on per diems not received because students were absent. It'll be a bunch, I bet.

How much better if Henke had apologized on behalf of the school district for the behavior of the district's students at Montebello High and announced that the participating students would ... hold your breath, this is a radical concept ... be punished.
