"The classroom should never be a place where students feel that they are picked at, bullied, intimidated", Villon told the Los Angeles Times. Following the disparaging comment, he was sacked as the city councilman.
He said he would apologize if his comments hurt people, but that was not his intention. "They're not intellectual people.They're the freaking lowest of our low". "Your freakin" stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. "They're the freaking lowest of our low".
A CT woman who is a friend of Quinonez' family posted the videos on Facebook on January 26, and one of them has been viewed more than 6 million times as of Monday afternoon. Kelly is a former U.S. Marine Corps general. "Anything I said had nothing to do with their moral character", he said, LA Times reported.
"I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for", Kelly, who retired from the Marine Corps, told Fox News. He had been on administrative leave while the school board investigated. I think people in the military or students who look into the military are lower standing students. After he announced he would not resign from that seat, his El Rancho High colleague Raul Elias filed a petition to recall him from City Council.
He told reporters that the situation had been overblown and exaggerated.
"You taught me that I could be the best that I could be in school and in life without having to risk my life or to pursue what I thought was my only option". His fellow council members passed a resolution calling for his resignation. "The community does not like what he's said". "The City of Pico Rivera was founded upon the principles, values and sacrifices of many of our veterans who when called upon by our nation served with great pride and honor".
Salcido also repeated his contention that less successful students more often join the military, ABC 7 said.
Protesters lined the streets at a February city council meeting, which drew 500 outraged people.
The rant was apparently prompted by the student's U.S. Marines sweatshirt.
"The data is in, we don't have a good military", he continued. "Not morally, I'm not saying they make bad moral decisions, they're not talented people".
He also criticized military recruiters in public schools. "It's because you didn't take care of business academically because your parents didn't love you enough to push you".
A recent study appears to undermine Salcido's assertion that military service is a dead-end proposition. The school began receiving complaints from veterans.
The study evaluated a decade of data between 2005 and 2015, culled from post-9/11 veterans. "They're gonna leave my son an orphan".
