Can we simply accept that kids are going to do these types of things and to make a big deal out of it just makes it worse? Isn't this just an extention of Freedom of Speech? Does anyone really think these kids have the intention or opportunity to really commit a violent act? This is the same state where grown men can walk around naked in front of small children in public and have local politicians FIGHT for their right to do so, yet local administrators go over the edge if some kids hang the likeness of a politician. WE HAVE BECOME A TRULLY INSANE NATION.

Many adults in this country did the same thing to Bush. It was called free speech. Teachers do what Dylan said and get out of the way. You are incapable of teaching chidren, and what you do is against most people's moral compass. Just worry about putting the condoms on the banana and let political speech go. We ARE Americans. Maybe you needed to be in Nam with me and millions of others to understand what I am saying.

I go to White River, and trust me, knowing the kids who did it, it WAS an act of racism. And the administrators of the district know that too, they just can't come straight out and say it. But that is why they were expelled.
