Ambivalence: This should surprise no one. Parents expect schools to raise their children and schools expect police to discipline them. Everyone is passing the buck in child rearing.

Of course they do. You get arrested when you try to rear children all by yourself.

As a functional idiot I'm OK with jailing people that dress in a manner I don't like. It says nothing about the rebelliousness of youth and everything about the tearing apart of the fabric of all that is good. Kids that dress odd never grow out of it or get jobs. Arrest the youth. Squandering our rights means nothing next to fixing this. I'm a functional idiot.

Flatulence? Seriously?

There are more than a few people in my family who should definitely stay out of Mississippi then.

rebelyell2006: Things really have changed. When I was a kid, the rest of the students just mercilessly ridiculed students who farted in class. Nobody was arrested.

I was wondering exactly how much you had to rip one to end up being arrested.

Sure it's more than a one cheek sneak, but are you eating beans and boiled eggs and holding it in until you've got a really big one that reverberates down the halls and into the gymn?

Wrong borders. Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado belong with Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.

/ That's about what it would take to loosen Utah up a bit.
// Oklahoma can stay with the rest of the bible belt.
/// Or Utah and Idaho can be their own country... Udaho.

They do that because it means they want gay sex in prison. As a white, upper-middle class, middle-aged man I am well versed in both prison culture and the fashion symbols of black, urban youth so you know I'm right.

RexTalionis: But there's no racism in the deep south.

Meridian Public School Superintendent Dr. Alvin Taylor, Ph.D, frowns at your ignorant, stereotypical assumption.

ZAZ: xynix

Do you mean Pennsylvania "kids for cash", which resulted in federal prison sentences for state judges, or was there another case in Virginia?

Yeah that one.. In that other Virginia know as Pennsylvania.
