Two students and teacher slapped on the wrist for skit about assassinating president-elect Trump

Two Texas high school students and their teacher participated a mock assassination of President-elect Donald Trump and walked away with apparently not much punishment.

The 10th graders from Marshall High School performed a skit titled ““The Assassination of Donald Trump,” for their English class in which one of the students made gunfire sounds from his cell phone while the student laying Trump collapsed, My San Antonio reported.

Harold and Melinda Bean, the parents of other students in the class, said pupils were required to submit scripts for their performance to the teacher in advance but that the two students in question changed theirs after it was approved.

According to a statement from Northside ISD the teacher had no idea what the students had planned and “stopped the student skit immediately when it became apparent that it was inappropriate.”

Northside ISD spokesman Barry Perez told My San Antonio “appropriate action” was taken against the students and teacher involved but that didn’t quell the anger of some parents, like the Beans.

“Honestly I have run out of words to describe how angry I am and how shocked I am that they’re still in school today,” Mrs. Bean said.

“I don’t understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning,” Harold Bean said. “Though we understand she is apologetic, it does not make the situation right.”

And even though the teacher stopped the skit after she heard the gunshots he questioned why she didn’t stop the performance as soon as she heard the title.

Pardon my language but I think that it’s a bunch of B.S. if they’re going to tell you the kids were stopped,” he said.
