The guy shouldn't have made a pass in front of other people....It's obvious the kid is in the closet,because gay people do not make passes on others that they know are straight.At least that is what Forest Gump told me and he would know,He's Gay!!!

This is absolutely hilarious. "Nobody at this school can fight no way?" "You are probably a queer to?"

Have any of these posters actually graduated from school? I have seen some of the worst examples of grammar/punctuation/spelling on this board. Such a shame. No wonder so many people from other parts of the country view southerners as idiots...these posts (many of them, anyway) validate that stereotype.

Perhaps cell phones and fighting aren't what we should be so concerned with. Maybe they're just byproducts of a much more disturbing problem...the fact that the next generation is populated with undereducated slackers that are too lazy to try to get more than a passing grade in any class.

I would be embarrassed if my 12 yr old daughter posted comments as poorly written and childish as so many that I have read on this board. I understand that the anonymity of an internet forum board might embolden some posters to "talk tough" and endeavor to portray themselves as badasses, but it's all quite silly. No one can climb through the telephone lines and "whup" anyone else's ass, so how can they consider themselves to be the least bit intimidating?

I love so many things about Crossville, but the mental laziness, and additionally, the apparent pride so many people take in their own ignorance is rather disconcerting to a person who was educated in this city a generation ago.

Hey kids, continue to think that using proper grammar/punctuation/spelling is uncool and we'll see how cool you are when you're 40 years old and kids make fun of you for being a "stupid redneck."

Many kids actually pay attention in school and take pride in their learning; God bless those kids and may they accomplish everything they set their hearts on.

I'm really impressed with the spelling and writing skills that have been on display here. Maybe if kids didn't have cell phones they wouldn't write like they are typing text messages to each other and punctuation is expendable. Besides that... how are teachers or administrators supposed to protect students? They aren't legally allowed to protect THEMSELVES in their schools. Our education system is broken across the board, and the behavior of our children is a disgrace. Oh, and Dee.... your attitudes concerning kicking "arse" is where kids originally learn it's acceptable to be a jerk to teachers and other students. Keep up the good work, parents. You're doing just great.

The guy was probably gay behind the scene and the openly gay guy outed him. There is a big gay movement in that area these days. None of those guys from there can fight good anyway.
That is the stupidest thing i have ever heard. You probably wouldn't last 2 hours here, before someone whipped your butt.

This story is not about students having cell phones. It is about a hate-crime. It is a good thing that they got it on a video. If the students and parents of Crossville would not believe that it was a hate crime.
It wasn't a flippin hate crime! The gay kid harrassed the other kid and he didn't like it. That's all!

I personally go to SMHS. Students having their cellphones out is the least of our worries. We have rumors flying around like crazy causing fights. People are discriminating against gay kids. I've heard people say things like, "Well if they don't want to be beat up they shouldn't tell everyone they are gay." Why should students have to walk the hallways in fear. It's not fair to anyone who gets discriminated against. We are forced to come to school and yet we have to live with the fear of being beaten up.
The school needs to come up with a better punishment for fighting. If we have to come then they should have to protect everyone. People are getting off to easily and they are not learning any lessons from it, so they need to make the punishment worse.
we know exactly what you are talking about, well at least danielle does. we personally attended SMHS too. my buddy danielle is homosexual also and we are friends of chaz sanders. i think that it was not right to have to go to different classes to avoid kids that would be a threat because that kid was gay. school is for education not for a chance for kids with a grudge to have the oppurtunity to beat on other children who are DIFFERENT.

I dont think anyone has the right to violate another person especially sexually. I have been reading the posts and have come to the conclusion that Ben was just making sure that the other young man understood that no ment no. If you are gay that does not give you the right to touch anyone in a place that is private. that goes for a straight person. Call me a prude but if i dont want to be touched by a man or woman its my choice not theirs. its my body and my right to say no. if I am touched in that way i think its only natural to fight back its called self protection.

Where are the parents in all of this? I am so tired of hearing about "gay" children in school and yes, that is exactly what they are. Children, and children who are very confused and in need of some help like yesterday!

Well after reading most of these posts, it is obvious most of you are not really in high school yet or are so spaced out on crack you can't learn to type, punctuate, or probably even speak clearly. If I am wrong and you are in the Crossville school system, you should ask for a refund.
