I defaced a towel this morning while getting out of the shower. At least the kid didn't use the flag to dry his genitals.

He *should* have been suspended.
He didn't follow instructions;
"To vote for entries, click the checkboxes of the ones you like. Enter your password in the box at the top. Click 'vote'. Wipe hands on pants."

a one day in-school suspension for the incident.

Eh, it's not really that harsh, but is this worthwhile? Seems like a lecture about manners, value, and protocol would have been more effective than ISS, which in my experience involves sitting in a room with a bunch of burnouts and doing your homework. A place so boring that you leave your coat on, but run a headphone plug up your sleeve so you can listen to Gary Meier and Steve Dahl on AM 1600.

/not that i've ever done that

Because you know, if a white kid did it, they'd offer him the whole flag to wipe his ass with

1. Regarding the record clearing:

"Unless it involves the words "tried as an adult", no one gives a shiat about your middle school record."

2. How much ISS did the kid get? Like if this was an end of the day assembly and they just sent the kid to ISS instead of the assembly I'm not really outraged. Just a "Hey, next time tell the teacher the restroom is out of paper towels, don't go wiping your hands on random things." If the kid did serious time in ISS, then it is bullshiat.

/also shake them out a few times and back of the pants kids, it works for the rest of it

"they believe their boy was harshly punished because he is the only African-American seventh grade student in the school's gifted program, even though the school's principal is black."

Black + Black = Not Racist
White + Black = Maybe Racist
Black + White = Reverse Racist
White + White = Good To GOI!

However, Moses Hinton's parents told NewsChannel 3 the incident did not happen, and they believe their boy was harshly punished because he is the only African-American seventh grade student in the school's gifted program, even though the school's principal is black.


Like little parrots, stupidly repeating knee-jerk defenses that The TV taught them.

But keep telling me that it's just the "oppressor" group keeping racism alive and well.

In-school suspension is not really suspension. Its like detention except that you don't stay after school. The kid just sits their alone all day and does his schoolwork. It's not like he's getting 0's on any tests or assignments on that day.

people who worship the flag are about as stupid as people who worship invisible sky wizards

Its a piece of fabric, more than likely made in China who gives a shiat

NO, I think that Wellon Dowd: (I defaced a towel this morning ) already did that.

Somewhat related: do native Missourians pronounce it "Missour-ee" or "Missour-uh"?

This! It takes teamwork to keep racism alive and well. All of us poor people of all races, me and you, working together to keep each other down!

Now where's today's Zimmerman thread? I need to tell you people what I really think about THUGS.

At least he didn't follow the Shawn Michaels method of flag etiquette.

You guys mixing up "defaced" with "defecated" ... not sure if trolling, or just stupid.

That said, crying racism because your kid got one day of ISS for being disrespectful to a national symbol ... that's actually stupid.

OlDood: And the race card is done in 1. Plus, he's 13 and still calls her "mommy"?


This!

Also, I don't like the crazy, patriotic, protect-the-flag bullshiat, but the kid walked out of the bathroom and wiped his hands on school property. He's not getting hit with anything hard. Just ISS.

That's maybe a little tough (versus the talking-to he probably would have received if it hadn't been the flag), but it's not ridiculous. Suck it up, learn to respect the property of others, and move on.

So since a school is a quasi-governmental entity, wouldn't it have been easier to argue a violation of his first amendment rights to free speech?

So what? My son is 13. He still calls my wife "Mommy".
Hell, for that matter, my brother is 44 and calls our mother "Mommy".


Anyway... Yes. The school overreacted. But the kid only got one day ISS at the very end of the year. This shouldn't have even made the news.

Crying "racism" is easier, and resonates with a larger group of morons across the country.

School kids don't have constitutional rights. This has been well established.

THIS IS NOT TRUE

The famous case says school kids DO NOT give up their constitutional rights when they enter a school. What the courts have ruled is that schools have a lot of leeway when it comes to "disruptive behavior" or actions that would disrupt the school and being able to regulate it

That is how they have been suspending kids with hair color, or tee shirts or whatever.

Had the parents not jumped instantly to the race card, I might have backed them up.

One day of ISS is not bad. I got three in the seventh grade for a fight that I started. Since the guy I hit hit back, we both got ISS. It was boring and we got two bathroom breaks plus we weren't allowed to go to the cafeteria so we had to bring our lunch. There was absolutely no talking. I was so happy for those three days to be finished.

He couldn't wipe his hands on his pants?

Side note:

I don't know if it's the recession, but for some reason, it seems like more and more public restrooms keep running out of paper towels.

ISS is the most boring punishment. But it was good for the kids that would probably just sit at home doing bong hits watching TV. If I would ahve ever got suspended from school my folks would have had a list for me to do.

Well at least he didn't try to eat ole freebie that could have started an intergalagtic war with the crab people
