PICO RIVERA, Calif. (KABC) --
El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera finds itself in the throes of a social media crisis after a student secretly recorded a teacher disparaging U.S. veterans in class.

The teacher, Gregory Salcido, is also a Pico Rivera City Councilmember.

You can't see him in the cellphone video, but his voice can be heard making fun of members of the military.

"Think about the people who you know who are over there, your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever," Salcido is heard telling his class. "They're dumb*****. They're not like high-level thinkers. They're not academic people. They're not intellectual people. They're the freaking lowest of our low."
