"A high school student in New Berlin, just west of Wauwatosa, was charged earlier this month with blackmailing other male students into having sex
with him after convincing them to send him nude photos of themselves via Facebook — where he had pretended to be a number of attractive female
This is most likely the reason for the student being dealt with by law enforcement. In alot of the schools in our area, and others, there is a huge
issue with inschool behaviour. Things that children get away with now is ridiculous, and the teachers are powerless because parents bring lawyers
into the picture. So instead of suffering continuous law suites, a school is simply going to find a mediator for troublesome students. This isn't a
police state situation. This is most likely a troubled child whos causing more problems than shes worth. I know hundreds of youths who need to get
pulled into line. Sure I'm all for freedoms, but children aren't meant to have "freedoms" because they barely comprehend the concept of
responsibility. For christ sake, most adults dont even know the meaning of the word. The thing is though, that there have been so many problems in
regards to cyber harassment that cell phones arent allowed in alot of schools. When you break the rules repeatedly, and the school isnt allowed to
discipline you, they get the police involved.
As a personal note. I am currently attending NAIT here in Alberta. Its a technical college. Its pretty small time compared to some of the
universities and colleges out there. Its gotten to the point, that if you're caught with a cell phone, you're gone. No suspension, no second
chances, just GONE. As in terminated. With us its a little more serious, its time and money wasted. The reason behind this was simple. Phones were
producing to many interuptions in the classroom. People were using them to cheat on exams, etc. Now if you are caught with a phone on the premises
your gone. Its a big deal. Now imagine a grown adult not taking it seriously and acting like a punk to the management at this school. Refusing to
leave on the basis of this punishment. The school would involve law enforcement, and it has happened. Is it unlawful? No. When we enter that
school we go there under a stipulation that we will follow rules. In the old days they would just kick your ass, but now, the laws are to extreme for
physical applications of force. So the police mediate, and when you throw a tantrum, you spend time in the tank.
Anyways, have a good one.
