Video Report Embedded

An African-American football player reportedly had a noose put around his neck by white teammates.

Many folks are frowning in the "City with a smile" after hearing news of possibly racially-charged hazing involving members of the Wynne High School's junior varsity football team.

"There was an incident in the ninth grade locker room," said Superintendent Carl Easley. "Two students are being recommended for expulsion and five have been suspended from school."

It's really sad to see things like this, because it's likely some of the students learned this kind of behavior from their parents. There isn't much reference to lynching in today's media.

Two students are being recommended for expulsion

Why? I think this is a good example of when education can trump severe punishment.

Unless he's being expelled to an predominately black school, I don't think those kids should be kicked out. After all, they're teenagers. Racist **** teenagers, but teenagersnone the less. I think with a some counseling and some detention....you know what... never find. Fuck those kids.

It's a Fucking noose.

I read the Book of Galatians and noticed a certain verse which is most certainly is of relation to hanging of people especially considering the Bible's influence upon the western world. [quote="Paul"] Galatians 3 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.

The kids are 14:| You've clearly never worked with children before. What are you trying to accomplish by expelling a 9th grader?

I wasn't doing stupid sh!t like that when I was 14. No one I know was doing stupid sh!t like that when they were 14. Fvcking 10 year olds know better than that, unless they're raised by parents so terrible they should be charged with child abuse just for being so dumb.

Very, very good question.

Lets assume they have racist parents that told them this is acceptable. Then what? Now what? Lets assume they have zero parietal guidance in their lives and were influenced by lousy friends/some internet forum that told them this is acceptable. Now what?

I don't care if they're 14. that's old enough to know some sh!t like that isn't acceptable, regardless of what some piece of sh!t friends or an internet forum says.

Yeah, not buying that argument. I'm glad you were the boy scout valedictorian but these students clearly are not. I'm sure there was a lot of crazy **** going on in your middle school/high school that you were unaware of at the time.

Please, don't ever work with at-risk children. Ever.

Edit: not to assume these children would have been labeledas such before this event, but they clearly need help, not expulsion.

Wow. Lol of the week. I don't even know how to respond to that. I don't know what kind of fvcked up community you're dealing with, where the only kids not engaging in horrifyingly racist, violent hazings, are the boy scouts and valedictorians, but it sounds like a terrible place. I hope, for your sake, you're not planning on raising your own children there.

And no, there wasn't any crazy sh!t, even close to that kind of crazy sh!t, going on in my school.

It was probably a stupid prank, but they should know better than that. Poor judgement.

How many times do we all have to hear the "I did XZY so anyone that didn't is wrong" argument? That was your original point which is why I called you the valedictorian. Glad you laughed. "I wasn't doing stupid sh!t like that when I was 14. No one I know was doing stupid sh!t like that when they were 14." It's great that in 9th grade you didn't get in trouble. It's great that you knew this kind of behavior was wrong. But you can't expect everyone to have the same experience as you and kicking these kids out of school is a mistake.

So some kids are ignorant and racist, and you think that problem should be dealt with by denying them an education? That will only make the problem worse, assuming their school is decent.

I got into plenty of trouble in 9th grade. There's a difference between the typical, boys being boys kind of mischief that kids get into, and hazing a kid with a fvcking noose. It's not a matter of just not getting into trouble. There are plenty of things kids do to get into trouble that pales in comparison to something like this. And yes, it is great that I knew this kind of behavior was wrong when I was that age. But not that great, because it's not that hard to know. And yes, I can expect other kids to know better than that. The only way they couldn't is if they were raised horribly wrong.These kids are fvcked up in the head, and don't belong in a regular school with the normal kids. Expel them, and investigate their parents.

Wait...what?! Investigate their parents for what, exactly? What reason is there for the parents to be investigated for anything?

Or maybe, just maybe, they're racist?

People do stupid things but a noose, a f*cking noose?? That sends a clear message. They should be expelled because they might still pose a threat to the affected students and others.
