Like many others, Javier Miguel DeHoyos, 14, a freshman at Pius XI Catholic High School in Milwaukee, saw the video on Facebook of high school students from a Kentucky Catholic school mocking and attempting to intimidate a Native American Vietnam War veteran. DeHoyos, who is Native American, said the actions by the teens in the video left him sad and disappointed, and that his school teaches students to be kind to one another.
