School Considering Expelling Students Who Taunted Native American Vet

That video that went viral over the weekend of students from a Kentucky Catholic high school taunting a Native American veteran may lead to some consequences. The school is considering expelling the students who were involved in the incident that took place on Friday.

In the videos, a big group of teenage boys are seen mocking a small group of Native Americans, who were participating in the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, D.C. Several of the boys are wearing Covington Catholic High School sweatshirts and one of several wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat gets in the face of Native American Vietnam vet Nathan Phillips.

After the videos went viral, Covington Catholic High School and the Diocese of Covington issued a joint statement that offered an apology to Philips and said they "condemn the actions."

The statement said, "This behavior is opposed to the Church's teaching on dignity and respect of the human person. The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion." (TIME)
