Lawyers involved after Iowa students pictured with burning cross, coach says

Iowa high school tight-lipped after armed students caught burning a cross in KKK hoods Iowa school punishes football players pictured in KKK robes with a burning cross

One of the students is holding a rifle with a scope on it, and another is holding what may be a Confederate flag.

Drake University Law Professor Mark Kende said in a previous interview that discipline by the district could be an unconstitutional overreach, infringing on the students' free speech rights, if they were pictured off school grounds and were not targeting specific people.

Jeff Bevins, the school's athletic director and assistant principal, declined to detail the discipline handed down to the students, who are minors, the Register said.

The photo, posted on Twitter and Facebook, shows the people in front of a burning cross.

Sources have confirmed the students involved were members of the Creston/O-M football team.

"This picture does not represent CCHS, our school system or our community. Makes me humiliated to be from this town". Students said they are saddened over the nature of the photo, especially given recent racially charged attacks in the nation, such as in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Charleston, South Carolina.

At another, he credited Kim for a brief pause in missile tests that ended days later. Trump said attempts at diplomacy with Pyongyang had failed over the past decades.


Administrators and students of the school are disgusted by the image, which the school became aware of on Wednesday. "I condemn those that are involved and think they deserve severe punishment, but let's be careful labeling this school and its community".

Austin said on the bright side are the classmates and staff members who have rallied behind Austin to give him support and love he needs as he works through this picture featuring those he called friends.

"But I can promise everyone that as a whole our football team and community aren't about that", he continued. I have always been proud of this student body. A person who answered the phone at the police department Wednesday afternoon referred questions from The Associated Press to Union County Sheriff Rick Piel. The actions made by a small group shouldn't represent the entire football team and community.

The Census Bureau says Creston, a city of about 7,830 about 100 miles southeast of Omaha, is 96 percent white and 1 percent black.

"I've never had to go through anything like that" said Kylan, 16.
