Student Gets Detention After Calling Teacher ‘A Communist’ For Not Putting On USA Hockey

(CBS) A student at a Massachusetts high school received a detention for calling his teacher “a communist” — three times over — after she refused his request to turn on the Team USA-Slovakia hockey game in the Olympics last week.

The story was relayed to in an email.

It read, “My little brother goes to Walpole High School and on Thursday asked to watch the USA vs. Slovakia game during Spanish class. When his teacher said no he called her a communist. She gave him a detention for it.”

You have to admit, that’s about as good of a reason as you could have for receiving a detention. There’s nothing but respect for being patriotic.
