A Dinwiddie County assistant principal had two students remove American flags from their trucks. While parents, students, and some faculty members complained and believe it was to avoid controversy, school officials explained later they believed the flags to be a safety hazard for the students because they were obstructing the rear window. Still, to handle such concerns would be up to the sheriff’s department. Besides, as long as there are two side mirrors it is not illegal to obstruct the view out of the rear window. After 8News inquired, the school reversed its decision.
