Transcript for New videos show students appearing to throw Nazi salutes
To the growing outrage over newly discovered video showing students appearing to do a Nazi salute. A California high school now re-opening its investigation and admitting it fell short in its initial response. Gio Benitez has that story. Reporter: This morning, school district officials re-opening their investigation into hate speech at school after a new batch of videos surfaced showing students in a los Angeles area school appearing to throw Nazi salutes and wrapped in confederate flags sparking outrage. In one you can see a boy carrying a German flag appearing to goose step and do the Sieg heil salute. Others appearing to make the same salute in unison coming to light after this video of students from Pacifica high school also appearing to do a Sieg heil salute went viral earlier this week. School officials saying they knew about the video but did not inform parents or teachers. I'm not asking for an explanation. There is no excuse. It's beyond unacceptable. We were completely blindsided and feel outraged. Reporter: School officials apologizing for a lack of transparency and say an initial investigation fell drastically short. This new information which continues to unfold minute by minute demands a school-wide call to action to address the severity of these claims to ensure hate speech never happens again. Reporter: After that first video the school had said the incident occurred in an unsupervised banquet room. The school now says any students engaging in hate speech or activities will face disciplinary action but parents want this to happen. It is shocking to see those images. It really is.
