I think this is a One sided story. The MEDIA did not tell the complete story. There is a lot more to this than what the one side stated! I think that Hurricane Middle should be ashamed of themselves ,also the Superintendant and this family for not telling the whole story!!!!!!!

How utterly irresponsible of WOWK-TV to run a headline story on "School Bullies" without first verifying ALL of the facts with ALL of the parties involved. Tell me, WOWK (and your affilate media outlets), what efforts did you make to determine what led to this fight? I don't suppose it occurred to you that the "poor baby" who got smacked around may have had a role in instigating the fight?

You played a video clip without putting it in the context of all events leading up to the fight - which, of course, you didn't bother to ascertain. And then, you indict, try, and convict the other girl in the public eye without "due process". I suppose the damage that you have done to this girl will more than exceed any punishment the school system could conceive. Doesn't that, then, also make you the exalted executioner?

In addition, you showed a video clip without making any effort to afford the other girl, a minor, a miniscule of privacy.

Goodness, exactly HOW MANY times did you violate the Radio-Television News Directors Associations & Foundation's Code of Ethics by running just this one tiny little piece. That is, if your organization HAS any ethics!!

Wonder if, in the the long run, it will have been worth it.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
