sounds like some young boys got a little lipstick on their dipstick and then bragged about it. She was a teen at the time of the "alleged" abuse. Curious to see this one play out!

Weren't all the victims female?

No boy in his right mind would take a class in hip hop dancing and anyway they were all just about the same ages including the teacher.

Need more information on this one?

It's sickening, yet refreshing to see that finally people realize that, yes females can also be responsible for sex offenses and violence. Most daytime talk shows, and on certain TV channels, the talk or plot always involves men committing these offenses. Well ladies, you wanted equal rights, you got 'em.

14 year-old boy and 17 year-old girl ? That's a fantasy come true, not a crime.

Until just recently 14 was the age of consent in Hawaii....not that I support baby rapers but I have to wonder if this is not some kind of vendetta against the dance instructor.

a hippity-hop dance class as a "healthy drug-free environment".......... that is definitely a contradiction in terms.

why not send orthodox jewish children to a healthy drug-free southern barbecue summer camp.

why not send nuns to a healthy drug-free brazilian bikini-wax clinic.

We know nothing here and have no evidence in front of us.

It looks dangerous to be a dance teacher these days - maybe they're all doing all of this, but maybe some of them are caught up in a trend/frenzy like the preschool teacher disgrace when children were encouraged to come up with wilder and wilder scenarios and good innocent people were put away.

Dance teacher? Let us not stop there. Let us take a look at other teachers such as Boy Scout leaders, Sunday school teachers and school teachers that plays favorite to some kids in exchange for whatever they can get. We should now "look" at the people/teachers that comes in contact with our kids and be aware of their actions.

Absolutely RIGHT. We have NOTHING, ZILCH, NADA. Lets get the facts first. Star-Bulletin's reporter should delve into this more, before reporting to us.

Von, lots of kids, including boys, participate in hip hop. It's a nice way to keep them out of trouble and get some healthy exercise. Like anything in life, it has it's bad apples. Dont' throw the baby out with the bath water. These programs are a great activity for our kids. Take a look at the television series, "America's Best Dance Crew" and "So you Think You can Dance" for examples of hip hop, breaking, and popping taken to the extreme.

I agree.

I want to see explicit detailed color photos of every aspect. Also what exactly are the dance teacher's body dimensions, hair, color, Etc.

This is very important so I can make some kind of determination in this matter.

Ok sorry, I will take your word for it.:)

I'm not much into hip hop dance.

If the vertical hip hop is legal, why not the horizontal?

Just because the victim and alleged perpetrator are close in age, doesn't mean there was consent. Can a 30 year old not sexually assault a 27 year old? Can a 13 year old not sexually assault a 10 year old? Can a woman not sexually assault another woman?

There are a lot of silly assumptions being made in comments on this story.
