Awesome Video: Hundreds ride with Cody Alicea to show support for his U.S.-flag-decorated bike after school banned itTopics: National News, Political News and commentaries
Hundreds of American Legion Riders and fellow patriots escorted Cody Alicea to Denair Middle School this morning - all with American Flags on their bikes.
And a veteran brought Cody to tears when he gave him his Purple Heart hat during a rally outside Cody's school.
As one might expect, the school ended up backing down from its ridiculous unconstitutional decision to prevent Cody from flying the American flag on his bicycle:
[...] Though the district reversed its stance -- Parraz said he'd be happy if every kid in Denair had a flag on his bike -- the issue went viral on the Internet and newscasts.Hat tip - RightNetwork
Several national bloggers picked up on it and encouraged followers to contact the school district, one suggesting sending a million flags to Denair. State Sen. Jeff Denham, recently elected to Congress, offered to fly Cody to Washington, D.C. for his swearing-in ceremony in January.
The Denair school board held an emergency meeting Sunday to discuss a potential lawsuit from a rights group that has threatened to sue.
