A secondary school in Creston, Iowa, has taught understudies who showed up in a photograph wearing white hoods and waving a Confederate banner alongside a consuming cross.

The photograph, Messerole stated, was not gone up against school grounds.
“Our examination is continuous,” Messerole said. “I would state that photo does not mirror the estimations of Creston High School, our school locale or our group at all.”
Creston Police Chief Paul Ver Meer told the Omaha World-Herald that his specialty knows about the photograph yet is not associated with an examination. A man who addressed the telephone at the police office Wednesday evening alluded inquiries from The Associated Press to Union County Sheriff Rick Piel.
