Two 10th graders at a San Antonio High School are under fire for staging a mock assassination of President Elect Donald Trump.

According to San Antonio.com, the students called the skit, which they performed in an English class, “The Assassination of Donald Trump.”

“One of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cell phone as the other boy, portraying Trump, fell to the ground in mock death,” wrote the newspaper.

The student at San Antonio’s Marshall High School who was “shot” was even dressed as Trump, said Fox News.

The students and teacher were reprimanded for the skit, but some are calling for them to face stiffer discipline, including at least suspension.

Since Trump’s election, schools throughout the country have faced a variety of incidents as election tensions spill out into educational institutions. The incidents have ranged from Pennsylania students chanting white power in hallways to a student being attacked and beaten for expressing support for Trump.

An Ohio man was charged with a crime for saying he wanted to kill Trump on Twitter.

According to The New York Daily News, calls to assassinate Trump have filled Twitter since his election.

In the San Antonio incident, the school investigated and found that the teacher, who apologized, had not condoned the skit, and instead had stopped it, said the Express News. The students were supposed to present a summary of their skit, but they deviated from their original plan, the newspaper said.

Two parents of a student who witnessed the skit, Harold and Melinda Bean, spoke out to the San Antonio media to condemn the incident. They told the San Antonio Express-News, “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.” They questioned why the teacher didn’t stop the skit after hearing the title.

It was presented as art (which makes it not real) it is protected by the First Amendment. I suggest a reading of the the Bill of Rights, Bonnie.

the judge

Zachary Benson of Ohio faces five-years in prison for threatening to assassinate president-elect Donald Trump !
These students should be charged to the full extent of the law, for insinuation to assassinate the president elect.
The teacher as well should be charged as well for her involvement!
A reprimand is completely unacceptable!
If the teacher thought an assassination of a president elect was funny I see no humor in it.
The teacher should be fired immediately the children should be charged with terrorist threats !
This is complete civil disobedience buy both students and the teacher.
If the media does not stop in fanning the Flames of racism they too must be charged with inciting.
And legally held responsible for the deliberate conduct with forethought of their actions and the outcome of their actions.

If this was a mock assassination of our black ass mooselum president there would be hell to pay. This is a disgrace

the voice of reason

I just could not believe the article.

I have read 3 people . Conspired together! to gain media attention too (input subjectively)( in to The minds of others)( to attempt a assassination on Donald J Trump president-elect life).
I am correct right ?
Is this is acceptable ?

So I’m guessing no one’s actually called 911 ?
How we going to stop this madness ?We have hoodlums in our streets! Vandalizing federal! and state property! private property as well and if that’s not bad enough( rioters/ protesters ) attacking the elderly.

Who ! Ss telling them to continue their attack on helpless people ?
Now ! We have a teacher with students used inappropriate classroom Behavior in front of other students ! And ; Demonstrating bad behavior by any standards of School ethics codes !
There must be some kind of teachers guidelines to follow? Right ?
I am sure the Secret Service must take a report ? Do something ?
Under their titles to protect the president-elect ?

Forgive me if I’m wrong ,we do still have laws here in this country ?
Or not ?

Obama and Killary haven’t condemned these people. They are encouraged by the sore Democrat left liberals cause they lost big tI me. Get over it….your shit didn’t work this time.

Yes, I forgot, Donald was such an advocate for Obama these last 8 years . . . especially his birther obsession . . . and then there’s Donald’s campaign comment to his audience that if Hillary was elected, that they could always avail themselves of the Second Amendment . . . so, please, get a grip . . . and Hillary is a private citizen now, why should she be saying anything anyway? When I read comments such as yours, I double my prayers for America.

BTW, could you please provide some documented examples of these so-called “sore Democrat left liberals” that are encouraging this instead of mere rants and accusations?

Bonnie, you mean they continue to fight lies with the truth? Yes, I guess you’re right.

They didn’t threaten anyone. Big difference between Benson and this. But this figures. No-brains Trump supporters. All you know how to do is react. Oh yea, and “google it.” Trump supporters are filled with hatred and racism. And BTW, Hillary Clinton got more than 1M popular votes than this chump and they’re still counting. Point is, the protests, the riots, all the backlash that comes from this disgrace of a President-ELECT will be huge news because there’s so so many of them. It will get in the way of his Presidency, in every way. You will be so engaged and wrapped up in your wall, and your immigration laws, and your security borders, and your coal miner jobs, that you’ll never see that when the smoke clears, the man became one of the richest men in the world and used America to do it. His final word? Suckahs!

It was a “play,” the key word being “play.” Therefore, it was not a “threat,” as it was not a personal threat. Actors were merely conveying the playwright’s words. I did not support Trump, but find it sad and abhorrent that any students would conceive and perform a play about an assassination of a sitting or president-elect, as much as I might appreciate their fear of what the new president might do. However, I’m not about to give up my First Amendment rights anymore than I’m sure you are; therefore, such poorly considered and enacted art will continue.

As far as the media fanning the flames of racism, “news’ by it’s very name is supposed to be the unusual–that’s why it’s reported. So, if racism is unusual, which is what your writings seem to imply, then it needs to be reported.
