How much longer are people going to put up with this crap?
Oh, good GRIEF.
Pardon my language.
Holy fucking shit.
Maybe they should concentrate on teaching their residents to not kill lesbians instead of worrying about a food fight.
Maybe they shouldn't have thrown the fucking fries. When you're at school, and you're told not to something, you either don't do it or you get in trouble for doing it. I really don't see anything wrong with teaching these girls a little lesson.
Why does the city prosecutor need to be involved in this? Just send the little bitches home for a few days. Damn.
Well they did get suspended for three days so its not like they got away with it.
The super duper extreme wording they are using here is crazy. French fries=missiles and now the city is involved is just stupid.
Oh, I really hope you're saying this sarcastically.
Yeah, they shouldn't have thrown the fries and yeah, they should've been taught a lesson - the suspension was fine. But to get the city prosecutor involved? To cite them for "hurling missiles"? To allege that they were trying to incite a riot?
Jeebus, they need to lighten up.
They should have shot that disrespecting little bitch, before she potentially maybe could have in a far away galaxy called kookoocrack land hurt somebody with a FRENCH FRY!
I'm glad taxes go to good use, paying the salary of a peace officer, who can stop FOOD FIGHTS in a school.
fuck this shit. there is going to be a revolution, when people get their tv's taken away.
DC Code has a similar statute about throwing "missiles" and it being a $2.00 fine per "missle" thrown. Although they are using the term "missle" loosely, the kids are not literaly throwing missles, it is nothing more than poor language in the statute. I would guess it would be better to call them "projectiles" rather than "missiles", they wouldn't write a separate statute for throwing french fries or food.
BTW, big ups for the Cherry Dart contest.
QFT. The suspension was a little excessive, I think one day would have been fine. But I see nothing coming of this. I guareentee the girls' future will not be damaged by getting this citation. This non story centers around attention whores. From the girls saying we are going to challenge the system mannnnnnnnnnn. To the bored city prosecutor, who has nothing else better to do with his time.
The principal of Laramie Junior High and a police officer had warned students during an assembly the day before the french fries' launch that if they threw food, they had to suffer the consequences, Police Chief Bob Deutsch said. The warning came after school officials had heard rumors of an impending food fight.
They were warned the day before and made an concious and informed decision to "buck" the system and go ahead and throw food anyways. its not like they werent being watched. Its not like it was 30 days later. IT WAS THE NEXT FUCKING DAY. They deserve everything coming to them. Make an example of them. they wanna be the cool rebellious crowd in Jr high. Not so cool anymore.
At least they didn't hurl Freedom Fries, then they would be unpatriotic little whores.
I don't have a problem with the girls being disciplined, because they should have been. They were told not to do something and they decided to do it anyway. The suspension would have been enough. Why did the school have to call the authorities? Why should the tax payers' dollars go towards having the people in the city prosecutor's office work on this?
Once upon a time things like this were handled in the school and at home. You'd do something wrong, the school would call your parents, you'd get suspended from school for a few days and would probably get grounded or have some privilege taken away at home (like no phone or tv for a week). The police weren't involved. A food fight? Get real..they have much more important things to do than cite two 13 year olds for attempting to do what 13 year olds do which is push the envelope to see how far they can go.
That's where I have a problem with this whole situation.
Oh and a french fry is not a missile. Even if it was to hit someone in the eye I doubt seriously that the kid would lose an eye.
Like I've always suspected. McDonalds is harboring Weapons of Mass Destruction.
What do you expect? As adults we're allowing it to happen and setting a shitty example:
Look man, I understand your passion when it comes to that particular topic. These two topics are unrelated and is perfect example of a stance that I have been taking lately. I understand the woe is us as a society mentality. Sometimes you have to judge each case on its indvidual merits and stop lumping everying together.
Over-reacting and over-punishing in the name of proving a point and keeping us safe from ourselves?
How are they separate issues? They do it to us as adults, then we teach our children to keep their heads down and not get hurt and they'll be more successful than someone who makes waves.
If you throw French Fries, we will prosecute you as adults to teach you a lesson! If you use your cell phone in your car, we're going to charge you $700 to keep you safe!
It's the same shit.
What I'm saying is, I guarantee you that those girls are not going to be into orange jumpsuits and made to do a perp walk.
No, but the police department was involved at the threat of a food fight... How fucking retarded are the administrators and parents that they thought that was even necessary?
So on senior skip day is the FBI going to come give them a speech pertaining to military desertion?
Not everything should be a police matter, from food fights to cell phones, and we, as adults that set the example, are allowing that mentality to propagate by allowing this sort of horseshit.
MJ would have loved this story
Is it alright to ask what happened to him. I hope he is okay.
He's fine, personal decision based on a disagreement. No banning or anything.
what a hack line.
and here's another hack line
"Does this mean I can now call my thighs silos???????" oh you!!! I'm incorrigible!
Their punishment should have been ****, by a close family friend.
Billy Madison was arrested earlier this week...
