Quinonez of El Rancho High School says his teacher Gregory Salcido criticized him for wearing a Marine's sweatshirt in class. Quinonez also says he was targeted by his teacher multiple times in the past. The video has since gone viral and receieved a lot of backlash from veterans and the community for Salcido's remarks. The teacher is currently on paid leave as the investigation continues.
