If You Are Reading This, You May Already Be In Danger of Being Suspended!
This is, without a doubt, one of the most ridiculous stories I have ever read.
A student in Costa Mesa, California, got on the popular teen website Myspace and created a group, the name of which was, "I hate [name of the girl.]" He invited some friends to join this group. He had a folder, within which was posted, "Who here in [this group] wants to take a shotgun and blast her in the head over a thousand times?"
Now, this is clearly disturbing and something that needs to be dealt with. The school district is attempting to expel him.
But here's the thing: The students who looked at the group -- didn't actively participate, simply LOOKED at the group -- were suspended.
This is thought police stuff, folks. I'm all about preventing bullying and that sort of thing, but all these students did was click on a website. At home. On their own time.
Abandon all thoughts of the constitution, ye who enter the TeWinkle Middle School.
