FTA...John Matthews, 18, was suspended for eight days after printing pornographic images and then dropping them down a stairwell at New Trier High School.

He didn't just print porn from a school computer, but distributed it too when he dropped the printed images down a stairwell.

Sounds like the teen is a real asshole,

He's doing it wrong.

Surprised he's not a registered sex offender now.

Isn't it a felony to distribute pornography to minors? He should be glad he isn't going to federal PMITA prison.

18 and distributing pr0n to minors.. I think someone is gonna get a knock soon.

that is some deep kimche that he has no idea....

If it's a public school it shouldn't be a problem.

Jeebus, I'm surprised "Porky's" was ever filmed, since the kids who could get in to see it saw boobies and everything. Which makes me wonder if an adult brings a kid to see an R-rated film that shows nudity, can the adult be charged with a crime? And the theatre is also distributing porn to the kid as well.
 
2011-06-01 08:31:48 PM
Yeah. That's sounds like a no-walk offense. Printing porn? No. Printing porn and throwing down a stairwell? Yeah.
 
2011-06-01 08:32:31 PM
Hah!

Two guys in my high school did this their senior year. They printed out a bunch of nude photos of some porn actress, and they wanted them in color, so they used the fancy new color laser printer which was.... locked in the teacher's office.

The looks on their faces were priceless when my buddies and I ran into them, peering into the office through that little rectangular window. The teacher found the prints the next morning, complete with a cover page that clearly stated the computer account used to print the pages and a timestamp.

They didn't get to go to graduation, either.

He should have burned the porn to CDs and dropped them down the stairwell. He could've used the AOL defense.

When I was a senior in high school they warned us repeatedly that if we farked around and caused trouble then we would not walk. It's a standard rule.

I'm getting a kick out of this as I caught a kid flat-out cheating on a test yesterday, reported it -- and proceeded to get reamed out by the parent today. When I spoke with the mother on the phone, all she kept on saying was:
"My child WILL NOT fail -- what are YOU going to do to keep him from failing?!?"
As usual, I responded with: "Well, as always, I'm available after school for extra help every day of the week as I have been for the entire school year"

/the kid had a 33% in the class before I caught him cheating

The Jami Turman Fan Club: Dumbass is lucky he gets to graduate at all.


I was thinking the same thing. I fully expected the school to overreact, expel them, and have them arrested. Then brought up on charges by the local DA looking to get elected mayor, found guilty, and then put on the sex offender list for their entire lives. But suspension? That just seems ... reasonable. What the fark is going on?

/my graduation was boring as hell - wouldn't of cared if I missed it

did any minors see the porn? did he get arrested for distributing porn to minors?

Because he did it with the intention of distributing explicit material to minors and causing a scene.

Let him face the legal charges like an adult.

Nah, he's just a typical senior.

I put up with senior pranks at NT for four years, and I'd have to say that releasing a live pig in the cafeteria is MUCH worse, damage-for-damage, than dropping some porn down the main stairwell.

Back when I was in HS (Late 1960's) someone pulled the old "Playboy Centerfold rolled up in the map" trick. On a female teacher.

Laughs were had all around. Then we got back to work. No revenge-based "justice" back in those days.

I'm a substitute teacher and it's crap like this that keeps me from seriously considering doing it full time.

How fired would you be if you say that well I could dumb the class down low enough so even your moron kid can pass but the other kids in class may not understand all the grunting and cave paintings?

New Trier is arguably the best public high school in the state of Illinois, but it's also in Winnetka, which is the Beverly Hills of Illinois. When I was in 8th grade, my parents were thinking of sending me to New Trier, and even as an upper-middle class family, I was too poor to go there. You need parents whose incomes are in the six figures to even sniff the cafeteria of that high school. Lots of spoiled, rich fark-ups that yonder direction, so this surprises me not.

I could almost guarantee you that if this happened at an inner-city Chicago Public high school, the parents wouldn't be suing. No, their little Northwestern-bound snowflake just HAS to walk.

I'd seriously pay to see the look on the parents face.

Meanwhile, I busted a local elementary teacher for being flat out wrong in her grading on a math workbook. (I tutor the student) The principal backed the teacher because she had "graded it the same way twice". Go figure ...
 
2011-06-01 09:45:05 PM
Why do people think graduation is a right? It is (or rather, should be) a privilege you earn by studying hard and behaving yourself. Seriously! Let the kid deal with the consequences.

I seriously laughed out loud...
I have to remember that line.
Not that I ever get that question. I'm one of the toughest teachers in the district for my subject area. But... I never give the kids soft squishy "participation" grades. I can back up every grade. I offer plenty of time to make up the work, and plenty of ways to make sure the work gets done and the student can pass... it's not my fault if 40+% of these kids are too lazy to try.

As for the idiot in the article... fark 'im. Graduation's a pointless ceremony that's about 99% circle jerk for everyone involved, and 1% honoring somebody by letting them give a boring-ass commencement address.

Bleah... instead of rewarding the kid by not letting him walk, they should make him sit through the whole thing and not call his name at all. Arrest him and his parents if they make any sort of scene at all... disturbing the peace and all that.

You were way too nice to the idiot mom. You should have finished your statement with, "however, since you and your child are doing everything you can to prevent him from graduating, I'm really at a loss as to what more I could do to help, you ignorant slut."
