"The principal walked into the school and immediately started yelling at me for it, and told me to get outside".
He said he did exactly as Steve Lindsey demanded without a reply but that another student who witnessed the incident and stuck up for Kasey was issued a one-day suspension for speaking out.
The next day Kasey was called into the office and given the in-school suspension for violating the dress code which states: "When a student is attired in a manner, which is likely to cause disruption or interference with normal operation of the school, the administration will take the appropriate action.
