monkey see monkey do



A 17-year-old Houston student was booted from her high school after refusing to stand for the daily Pledge of Allegiance, a federal lawsuit charges.

India Landry had sat for the Pledge hundreds of times at Windfern High School without incident, she said. However, she was immediately shown the door by school Principal Martha Strother on Monday while in her office after declining to stand for the Pledge.

Administrators at the school had "recently been whipped into a frenzy" by the controversy caused by NFL players kneeling for the national anthem, according to the lawsuit. NFL players had recently taken action to protest some of President Trump's statements.

The lawsuit also charges that India was told after she was expelled that "if your mom does not get here in five minutes the police are coming."
