What a moronic father. He should be thanking the school for trying to the stop the child from going down the wrong road. He is just embarrassed that he has not made the effort to discipline his son.

I dont think the school can deny the student his opportunity to complete his homework and assignments can they? I'd just enjoy my three days off, and take the good with the bad. Doesnt look like it was much of a fight by the pictures.

If this boy were the Colonel's son I whip him from Tulsa to the state line and thank the school for helping teach him a lesson. As for the low life dad, he'll probably buy the boy a radar detector when he gets his first speeding ticket!

If the parents would put as much energy in to raising children as they do griping about poor Jonny being punished, we would have fewer issues like this.

Funny thing: I never, EVER fought when I was in school. EVER. Other kids fought... but I had parents who taught me right from wrong. Too bad this dad didn't do the same for his son. You have no sympathy from me. This does send a message:

CURB YOUR CHILD!

Have any of you thought that maybe this kid didn't initiate the fight? If that were my son I would be very upset that the school is giving punishment for a fight that happened off of school property JUST to make a statement to the other kids. They have no jurisdiction over a store accross the street. Yes, the dad should punish the kid if it is due..but NOT the school!

Another example where the school system has taken on th role of parent because parenting isn't done at home. My da always toldme (and I told mine) that if they got in trouble at school, they'd get it worse at home. Since this was related to a school function, th school system set a good example by disciplining this young man and setting the tone for others. The dad isn't doing his kid any service in the long term by attacking the school publicly instead of in private,because now the kid will think he can run to Daddy whenever he does wrong and it'll be defended, right or not. Bottom line, if you don't want others involved in the discipline of your children, you need to make sure your children respect (and maybe a little old fashioned healthy fear) you enough not to do wrong and expect you to defend it.

Was the other kid suspended for fighting too? Because if he wasn't, this certainly was not fair. All you people going off on the father, yeah, the kid shouldn't be fighting and there are obviously some issues there. But hello, the bigger issue here is the school taking its "rights" too far. So you punish someone BEFORE they commit a crime on school property? How does this make sense? This kid did nothing wrong on school property, how can they punish him? Hell, they might as well punish all the kids that fight at home with their siblings, because you know, that could end up happening on school property too.

Amazing that most of these comments are about the father. I think he is right to stick up for his son. Why a three day suspension? What happened to after school suspensions or Saturday suspensions? Seems harsh for a warning. To send a message to the other students? Does Owasso have rampaging hordes of kids that need to be controlled with school detentions?

How far does this reach? If a kid was followed home from school and had a fight in his yard? Or would it have to be 200 kids parading behind that makes it a three day suspension? What if it was just 10?

I Agree with Losing our freedom, the rest of you go ahead and disipline your children today because you know sometime in the future they will not make a good choice.

This is why my son goes to private school. Owasso school district has made many bad decisions. I have two older children that graduated from the High school and that was a BIG reason we chose private school. My daughter who was in 11th grade wanted to change classes because of a really bad teacher the only other class offered was across the street and I was told it was to dangerous for her to cross the street. Yet the Quarterback at that time was able to with out a problem. Not to mention that he crossed the street to take the class from his mother. When I moved to Oklahoma I was told that Owasso was the best school system in the area. They have proved more then once that is not the case anymore.

Well, since any student can begin a fight at any time rather on school grounds or not, then use their justification and just suspend all the students because they "might" start a fight. This superintendent has crossed the lines of discipline.

Yes, your son should be punished for fighting across the street from the school. This is still a school related issue and Tulsa kids are suspended for this very thing all the time. How, might I ask, is the school using your son??? You obviously condone this kind of crap or you would not be making such a fuss.

No violence period. Your child and the other one planned this at the school.

Rather then teaching your son to take responsibility for his actions your teaching him how to whine and moan because he is being served discipline.

Ok will someone please explain how in the world 200 students left the game and went across the street to watch a fight and not 1 Owasso police officer saw this. Half the Owasso police department is at the football games. I agree with the parents of this boy, and have experienced fighting at a game with my own son in the past and the police dept. just kicked them out of the game. The school system is wrong and the asst. superintendent in my opinion is worthless. I have called him in the past with concerns in the schools and he NEVER returned my call.

The question isn't what should be punishment be... it's about who should determine the punishment!

Gee after reading the responses on here, I wonder if anyone actually heard what the father said. He is punishing his son for fighting and is handling it at home. I agree that if you want to send a message then make it a in school suspension that you actually have to do work, away from your friends. Give extra work. Making him stay home, yeah that's real punishment.
