plastic bottles and balloons filled with water were thrown at students and administrators

I can imagine getting hit with a full water bottle could hurt quite a bit.

Last day of school my senior class we had a huge water/shaving cream/silly string fight in the school parking lot and many of the teachers just watched, amused.

1: Assault and battery charges for a water balloon?
2: a 17 year old freshman?!? Please tell me that's wrong.

I can't believe the public is still exposed to this horrifying compound.  After all the deaths attributed to it, you'd think someone would do something.

Water ballons?
Man, I would be a felon if I went to schools today.

Clearly, the perpetrators must be charged with domestic terrorism for using a weapon of mass destruction.

At least the kids weren't drinking that stuff.  I've heard every serial killer uses DHMO

A friend of mine was hit by a water balloon thrown out of a moving vehicle. She described it like being hit by baseball bat right in the gut.

// I'll leave it to the physicists to figure out the energy comparison between a baseball bat and a water balloon traveling at 35MPH

Thank goodness those kids weren't using dehydrogenated water, though. That could have gotten ugly.

You missed the best part:
"Justin Devon Mangum, 17, of Walnut Bluff Lane in Raleigh was charged with assault and battery for throwing a water balloon, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said. The balloon he is charged with throwing hit an employee of AlliedBarton, a security firm employed by the school system, Sughrue said.
Mangum is a freshman, officials said."

So I guess if you hit a rent a cop with a water balloon you do hard time now?

Hell, in my school it was inside school grounds! The tradition was graduating class vs the rest if the high school for epic water balloon battle.

First day of senior year, I hung out of a friend's passenger window and spat fake blood towards the freshmen (not on them) w/ death metal blasting out of the window... can't imagine that would go over as well now, and that wasn't that long ago.

When did news organizations start publishing the names of minors involved in infractions?
 
2013-05-22 06:51:40 PM
We must put controls on that dangerous substance.

I say we make it illegal to collect it, and only available commercially
 
2013-05-22 06:52:05 PM
Just down the street from my old place.  I'm thanking Baby Jesus as I write this, for sparing me the tragedy.  That school was so close, there's a chance some of those materials may have spilled over onto my lawn.  I can only imagine the damage it might've done.
 
2013-05-22 06:52:23 PM
I can't remember seeing the names of minors accused of a crime in a paper before. Not saying that it's illegal, just unusual. And the school had 2,300 students with a contracted security team? It just seems like that's an environment that would lead to students to think of themselves as hoodlums from a young age. I've seen those big schools with metal detectors and police, etc. Seems odd to me. Almost like a prison. Imagine a student who was on the edge of being a hoodlum going to a school like that or conversely going to a bucolic school with a normal number of students, lunch in a real dining room versus herding students into those awful cafeterias, etc. I think it makes a difference. I think people behave somewhat according to the environment you put them in and what becomes normalized early on.

You seem to think that assault and battery is a serious charge.  It can be a misedemeanor or a felony.

I wouldn't call it a "lockdown" unless I was a reporter, but keeping kids in classrooms while corralling these farkwits is perfectly sensible.

I wonder what "other substances" they were threatening to use... I assume that the police wouldn't have shown up if they knew it was just going to be water balloons.  Also, you don't get to do stuff like this unless you're a senior, and none of these kids were seniors (being a 17 year old freshman doesn't count).

It's called 'zero tolerance'.  Equates to 'zero intelligence' for administrators.  Gives them the excuse to not have to step in and make decisions -- just call them the police and let them deal with it. Beats thinking anytime.

As a parent of high-school aged kids, I have to warn them that everything they do can be taken out of context, and what they perceive as a harmless incident can be blown completely out of proportion by zero intelligence administration, and end up with them being charged with a crime -- even when it's anything *but* a crime.  Being a kid is criminal these days.

Did you know that virtually everyone on the Titanic who perished was found to have died as a direct result of exposure to that chemical?  It can be delivered to the human skin at a temperature which will cause death in a matter of minutes in cases of total immersion (or even a matter of seconds at the upper temperature end of its liquid state).  Of course, those who were unfortunate enough to inhale it died even faster -- a matter of seconds is all it takes to induce unconsciousness.

I simply cannot believe that the majority of the civilized world is so blind that they have it actually piped into their dwellings.  Mark my words -- DHMO will continue to cause thousands of deaths per year.  During natural disasters, and in circumstances where there seems the least risk.

Watch yourselves, people..

TFA:Seven Enloe High School students face misdemeanor charges and possible school disciplinary action for an incident Thursday in which plastic bottles and balloons filled with water were thrown at students and administrators ordered students kept in their classrooms.

In all fairness, that would hurt like hell.  The response doesn't seem that out-of-line.

/similarly, a normal water balloon may be funny, but put it in the freezer for a while and it becomes far less funny

Hydrofluoric acid.  It wouldn't even hurt -- not right away, anyway.

While this is funny it is also, sadly enough, entirely possible. Given the " hang 'm high " attitude of school administrators these days that would be their first thought.
 
2013-05-22 08:08:51 PM
the balloons held tap water despite rumors and Twitter posts suggesting before the event that they might hold something else.

Hm, the perpetrators were all teenage boys. I think it's possible the balloons DID hold "something else"...but not the substance that administrators are thinking of...
