School Nazis

Students Suspended For Living

A middle school student faces expulsion for allegedly posting graphic threats against a classmate on the popular Web site, and 20 of his classmates were suspended for viewing the posting, school officials said.

Now, I have very little problem with the school suspending the student who made the posting. However, suspending the other kids is like suspending a kid for being in the same room when someone says "Hey, I wanna kill that guy". This MySpace backlash has got to end. Schools should just block the site (yes, I know, there's ways around it) and be done with it. MySpace isn't doing anything new in this context. It just makes it easier.
Jesus. I am so fucking sick of this sort of panic and over-reaction.
Who do they think they are kidding?
Did violence not take place before the Inter-web? Did people all love each other become cable modems?
Its all about pointing fingers.
Its all about not taking responsibility.
Its all about trying to make complicated problems into a something you can target.
Yeah, thats much better than solving things.
Thank goodness.

No, you know what? FUCK YOU!
