Covington Catholic Teen; ‘I Had Every Right’ To Stand There

Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic Teen who has been at the center of controversy until recent details emerged of what really happened during Friday’s highly publicized stand-off with Native American activist Nathan Phillips in Washington, D.C., believes his actions were “not disrespectful,’ and told Savannah Guthrie he “had every right” to stand there.

As reported by the Huffington Post, Footage of the Covington Catholic High School student ― and his peers ― went viral following the incident, showing the group surrounding Phillips on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial as he performed an American Indian Movement song.

Sandmann is seen in the video smiling just inches away from the Native American elder’s face and when questioned, he told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie he “had every right” to stand before Phillips.

“My position is that I was not disrespectful to Mr. Phillips. I respect him, I would like to talk to him,” he said. “In hindsight, I wish we could have walked away and avoided the whole thing.”

Sandmann’s sit-down interview comes after an earlier statement was released on his behalf by a public relations firm in which he claimed to have been singled out by Phillips, also according to the Post.

“I believed that by remaining motionless and calm, I was helping to [defuse] the situation,” it read. “I said a silent prayer that the situation would not get out of hand.” – READ MORE
