A Union Mine High School student is facing battery charges after an altercation in her classroom over a Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” campaign hat.
Cellphone video shows some of the tension inside this high school classroom.
The teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Jo-Ann Butler, after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the “Make America Great Again” hat.
She grabbed the hat off his head.
“That’s a racist and hateful symbol,” Butler said.
She is now facing two counts of battery, one against her classmate and one against her teacher who deputies say she slapped, as he escorted her from the room.
Butler says she made the scene to express her political feelings.
“Maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because it’s not cool the environment our classroom is in,” Butler said.
Her father says he does not approve of the way she behaved in class.
“Wasn’t handled the way I’d like it,” Chris Butler said.
What do you think folks? I think Jo-Ann Butler needs some jail time before she graduates!
