Vulgar disrespect for America has its rewards.
The South Carolina teacher placed on administrative leave after throwing an American flag on the floor and stomping on it was paid $85,000 as part of an out-of-court settlement in a case arising out of that incident.
The settlement does not include the salary that Chapin High School English teacher Scott Compton will continue to receive until June 7, according to The State. He continues to get paid although he was placed on leave in January and submitted his resignation on Mar. 27.
“Prior to his resignation, attorneys for Mr. Compton informed district attorneys that he had prepared a complaint for filing in federal court,” Lexington-Richland 5 spokesman Mark Bounds said, The State reported.
“Based on financial considerations related to anticipated legal fees to defend such a suit, the insurer made the decision to make a monetary (offer) to Mr. Compton. He accepted the offer.”
The taxpayers in South Carolina also will foot the bill for more than $31,500 in attorney fees.
Let me get this straight: This far-left douchebag used our flag for a door mat as part of a visceral anti-America ‘civics lesson’ and he gets a handsome settlement. Compton’s explanation, according to one of the students, was “there would be no consequences, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t mean anything.”
It does have a meaning, which is far beyond the capacity of assclowns like Compton to understand.
If there’s an iota of integrity anywhere in the American school system, he won’t even get hired as a janitor.
