Covington HS promised a lawsuit in 48 hours

Where is it?

I would love a lawsuit but doubt hugely any will spring from the HS. Their apology stands to date.

Laura Keener, of the diocese, released the following statement:

"We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.

"The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement."

The Diocese knows these kids, watches their racist behaviors daily and has no trouble believing a tape showing their bad behavior. I've seen two videos of them trashing women that same day and the videos of them in blackface at ball games is disgusting in the 21st century. Their adult supervision is baffling ,send in a marine.

To date, the only "appropriate action" taken by the diocese is to hire a PR firm.

Nicholas Sandmann Statement

I'll leave it to others to poke holes in this kids explanation. What struck me was his claim that CCHS students are respectful of all races. I suppose it's remotely possible but every photo I've seen of the crowd of kids, especially the ones wearing MAGA gear and all the photos I've found of CCHS groups on their website are 99.9% devoid of POC. Coincidence?
