School Moves to End "Rape Tag" Playground Game

Feb 3, 2012 Full story: NBC Dallas 36

The recess game was similar to freeze tag "except that a person had to be humped to be unfrozen," Washington Elementary School Principal Bill Sprung wrote in a letter to parents.

How long before the administrators decided that this was grossly inappropriate behavior for elementary school students?

right every child goes to the principal/teacher/school-board and announce their intention to play rape tag

please note I left out a school guard , because we didn't need one ....the teachers ran the school , not mommy/daddy/student

Too bad, we were going to play stab tag next. Then maybe smoke crack tag after that. I'm sure that the majority single moms were upset(that their kid got caught). I'm sure they can find another good game, like hitting kittens with baseball bats. Such good kids.

Soooo, you are saying that these children were outside, UNSUPERVISED, playing rape tag. Is that what you are saying? If that was the case, then the school has far more serious problems than a game.

LOL! I was agreeing with you.
If I was a teacher it would have been a no brainer, ya know? And I do understand going through the motions, but really? I would hop right on that behavior and probably gotten fired, lol.
