More about this "pledge line"

Regarding the video that I had posted on Saturday with some young men or I suppose boys in a black fraternity like pledge-line that was seen on YouTube over the weekend. Here's some more info that was brought to my attention:
A middle school teacher in Missouri was suspended Monday for putting a video on YouTube of his students chanting lines from Barack Obama speeches and wearing military fatigues. The video, called "Obama Youth -- Junior Fraternity Regiment," was posted by a YouTube user named "keepitwildtv" on Oct. 2. The school learned the video was on the Internet and took action against the teacher Monday morning.
This teachers probably should have kept it on his own time yeah. Perhaps even avoided using students at his own school as well.
