Road flare in principal's car  - These things happen

UFIA - These things happen.

I heard the pope just canonized them.

Back when I went to school, girls used to set each other's hair on fire in the hallway all the time. I thought it was just a fashion thing.
 
2013-05-12 09:23:55 PM  
What would you prefer, subby? That the principal not be allowed to treat cases of misconduct on a case-by-case basis?
 
2013-05-12 09:24:15 PM  
Well they do.

It's called "The Flaming Amazon".

If the principal is set on fire, launched by trebuchet into a junkyard filled with glass shards, then ran over with a steamroller, well...

(you can see where this is going)

...these things happen!
 
2013-05-12 09:26:57 PM  
If these things didn't happen, we wouldn't get articles about them.
 
2013-05-12 09:27:26 PM  
Better than my principal's response when Billy Clarkson beat the shiat out of me on a daily basis: "These things *don't* happen"
 
2013-05-12 09:27:56 PM  
Are you sure her hair was on fire?  Because her friends smacking her in the head with the excuse of putting her hair out would be a good prank.

/saying 'you have a bug on you' is only good for one smack, but burning hair is good for atleast a few.

Do it to the principal and see if he thinks it's cool then....
 
2013-05-12 09:31:30 PM  
As someone who works in a high school, this shiat does happen. I try and stick to the problems between male students. The ladies be crazy...

He's right. It happened.

O'Conner said her daughter is really shy and has been too scared to go to school because of teasing. But she plans on taking her daughter on Monday and stay with her the whole day if she has to do that.

No, don't do this. She has friends now watching more closely for her, and before the other girls get back there needs to be some procedures in place to assure as minimal contact as possible such as directing them down other hallways.

Her mother said the school officials told her they couldn't do anything if it was just words.

Bullsh*t. You can minimize contact between periods, during lunch, and in classes as well as have some interventions via teachers not only for consequences for the girls but to support this girl in the case of further issues. If this continues with words, frequently, this would be bullying.

Butler transferred from North Chicago this year and has always been on the honor roll. O'Conner said she signed papers so she can skip a grade next year, but it will put her in the same class as the other two girls.

I doubt this will place them in the same classes. She is being accelerated, whereas the other girls are likely low achievers.

once upon a time there used to be some people you would call when you get assaulted like that.

is... is this woman for real? the police consider it bad enough to merit opening a case and the principal is still saying only an "incident report" needs to be filed... wtf?
 
2013-05-12 09:35:23 PM  
Charges and jail time for arson, aggravated assault, and attempted murder. These things happen.

So is that how the kids talk these days?  They don't say, "That's cool." they say, "These things happen"?
I'm old so it's hard to keep up.

Guess they would have to kill her to get expelled.

Where in the headline is subby calling for zero-tolerence? That's what you're insinuating.

To change him and make him better, you gotta touch his freakin' heart. You can't expect a kid to change if all you do is just tell him.

The school district where I work gives out 3 day OSSs for possessing tobacco products, which includes lighters. Fighting gets kids 5-20 days OSSs, depending on the severity of the assault (and if it's more than 10 days, the case is then kicked over to the district office to determine if the kid should be expelled or not). Furthermore, if the assault results in serious injury to a person or damage to an object/property, the kid is given a shiny pair of chained bracelets and driven to the local jail.

So if this had happened in my school district, I have a feeling the girls with the lighter would be taking a little ride downtown. The three day OSS they were given would have only covered having the lighter.

tldr: how the hell does the principal think a 3 day suspension is sufficient enough for trying to immolate someone?

INeedAName: As someone who works in a high school, this shiat does happen. I try and stick to the problems between male students. The ladies be crazy...


THIS. The guys will usually back off if barked at long enough (apparently, I'm a pretty scary 5'4 woman when I'm in discipline mode). The girls will continue until the SRO shows up.

Somehow I knew it would be Tatayana and her mother before I clicked; or perhaps one of her neighbors.

No, usually they say "It is what it is, y'know?"

I'd have called the cops the instant I heard that my kid's hair was set on fire and she was punched.  Never trust a schooler to report anything.

Vangor: Her mother said the school officials told her they couldn't do anything if it was just words.


I don't really know the procedure when it's just words.  But that's not really relevant, because it's no longer just words, it's felony assault.

Does the principal look like Donald Sutherland?  Or maybe he'll look like this later...

I say expel the girl/s that did it once proven. And if it's proven there is a pattern of bullying from this girl or girls, then all the better. Criminal charges yes but I don't think attempted murder, as commented by another Farker, will fly. Don't know that aggravated assault will either as there was no mention of serious bodily injury. Burnt hair is cosmetic and a punch to the forehead most likely will be simple assault. But a simple three day suspension is a joke.

It is time we consider installing Arena's in schools.  These sort of matters really need to be settled through martial prowess.  The victor shall eat the heart of the fallen to gain their strength and the rest of the body will be sent to the cafeteria to be used in making pizza's.

Well, he was right. These things happen. Things happen all the time.

As usual, principals take the side of the bullies because they were and are bullies themselves.

Arena's ... pizza's?! I think someone needs to go back to grammar school and learn how to spell plural words.

Hah, I did that to my wife once. She goes insane when there are mosquitos around, and one time she was swatting away and I said "hold still" and gave her a slap on the forehead. "Did you get it?" "Get what?"

Perhaps they are tired of dealing with every whining victim and helicopter parent.

Guzman said police are moving forward with an investigation despite the principal just calling for a report of the incident.

I have to admit you got me.  I can't deny that was sloppy in the extreme.
