PARKER, Colo. -- A prom picture is stirring up quite a controversy outside of Denver, KDVR reports.
According to KDVR, students at Chaparral High School hosted prom in Denver over the weekend. While the dance was just fine, it'a a picture of students posing with guns and the Confederate flag that is grabbing the nation's attention.
The teens have done nothing illegal, KDVR reports. Still, many are questioning the logic of posing with such emotionally charged regalia.
“When he got out there he was surprised that guns were brought out and the Confederate flag was brought out,” said a mother of one of the students in the picture, who spoke to FOX31 Denver exclusively on the condition of anonymity. “There were other parents there fully supporting it and taking pictures.”
At least one student's mom doesn't condone the behavior, KDVR reports, and says her son has made a mistake.
