Not everyone has middle school, Mr. AAG. Or are you just living up to your username? :)

As an employee of an organisation that recieves veilded threats on a frequent basis, I understand the investigation. Joke or not, a threat of retalliation is still a threat.

According to a quick search the school has kindergarten through eighth grade classes.

Normally, I would agree... but the student was clever enough not to say what they were going to do on Dec.4th... they knew if they did (and it was something criminal) they would be charged with a crime. I am afraid the student should not have followed up their initial statement of Goodbye Corvina with Just wait till Dec. 4th... that implied a very serious threat... With these school and theater shootings that seem to be occurring more and more frequently (something I never even imagined when growing up), it seems wise for the principle to say fark you kid...

You bring up a good point, and I do agree. Even thinly veiled threats should be looked into. Obviously, the kid wasn't the brighest bulb in the first place.

I was just bemoaning this generation's obsession with Facebook espionage. Then again, the same can be said for idiots posting what you mentioned/bragging about burglaries/etc.

No threat made no crime no intent. Even as a 13 YO I would have no issues telling the whole lot to pound salt while laughing.... while laughing in a menacing way

DNRTFA, but was this kid stupid enough to leave her profile public and/or friend the principal or a teacher?

Social Media needs to be a class in junior high school right alongside sex ed and...oh, wait...never mind. We're too busy having them memorize the date of the Battle of Gettysburg to teach them useful shiat.

nope you're good... no double post :)

I agree with you on that point as well. We just seem to be living in a progressively more war-zone like society (random knock outs on the street, school shootings, just all kinds of crap)... something that wasn't even around when I grew up... and it appears to be getting worse unfortunately.

Yep. It was the "Wait until December 4th" comment that sent up a red flag and rightly so. Of course, that wouldn't have whipped the mouth breathers into a froth, and so the submitter chose to use the "See ya Cortina" quote in the headline to get a reaction. Personally, my headline would have been,"Principal of Cortina Elementary School wants to suspend a student for the rest of the year for having a Facebook account".

Mice don't look over their shoulder, they just run at the slightest hint of something possibly maybe being there.

This. There's such a thing as being prudent in response to threats, but this is just cowardice.

A 13-year-old didn't think about all the possible ways a sentence could be read before writing it? Say it ain't so. XP

There used to be this really old-fashioned notion called "innocent until proven guilty".

I've always wondered about that. If they're innocent then why are they being punished?
 
2012-11-21 01:24:32 PM  
So a perceived threat was investigated, deemed harmless, and no charges were filed? Um, what's the issue again?

The police will not be filing charges, but the principal is going to do everything possible to prevent this kid going back to school.

As if not being enrolled means there's no way for them to get on campus.

True, the principal is going a little overboard, but while the subby's headline says "Principal of Cortina Elementary School wants to suspend a student for the rest of the year because she wrote, "See ya Cortina" on Facebook"

The actual article says: "However, Cortina Principal Cort Monroe said the student will not be returning to school in December."

Since the kid was already suspended for a week for the initial alcohol infraction, the principal is adding another two to three weeks (depending on how long the December winter break lasts) for the perceived threat. Granted two or three weeks suspension is a bit severe, but subby made it look way overboard by posting "the rest of the year" which would make you think the school year as opposed to the end of next month.

So basically Principal Cort Monroe wants to feel like a big man by overreacting and trying to ruin a 13 year old kid's life because the suspended student posted See ya on December 4th (the day the suspension ended).

Man, I thought the adults were supposed to be more mature than the students, not vengeful pricks looking for reasons that don't exist to try to ruin their lives, lol.

Don't give Cort Monroe a reason to act like a dick, he feels threatened by the Taylor Swift-set!

Terrible Old Man: So basically Principal Cort Monroe wants to feel like a big man by overreacting and trying to ruin a 13 year old kid's life because the suspended student posted See ya on December 4th (the day the suspension ended).


Well, kudos for skimming the article, but what it really says is: "The student, who was not identified by police or Principal Cort Monroe, wrote "See ya Cortina" on Facebook after the suspension. After going back and forth with some friends who questioned why the student wrote that, the student wrote "Wait until Dec. 4," said Sheriff's Office Sgt. Brandon Jones."

How on earth does an additional 2 week suspension for a perceived threat by the kids friends and their parents become ruining his life?
