These poor boys may lose 2 or 3 months out of their life for this little prank. But then, that's Mass.

If the victim had been of a different race or orientation, those poor boys would lose a lot more than that..........

You ARE a bright one, aren't you? All those years of selective inbreeding show, don't they?

Hopefully, those "poor boys" get the book thrown at them and also the mean girls in the school. The faculty and staff who turned their back on this young girl and allowed this kind of behavior to continue should also be held responsible.

Throw the BOOK at them and the staff at the school. The system failed to protect a young girl who needed help. If this gets swept under the rug, shame on all of us for allowing that to happen.

Ouch, the "inbreeding" joke, what a zinger! How does someone come back against such witty, cutting edge humor like that? Seriously, how did you ever come up with a joke about inbreeding? Be honest, this is a team of comedy writers posting this, isn't it?

-- Do you have any idea how difficult it is to pursue "bullying" in a school? Teachers are not allowed to keep a student after school for homework completion, a relatively routine situation, and easy to prove,without permission. So now you expect a teacher to survive the process of accusing a prince/princess of bullying? The parents will descend upon the school, the local liberal establishment will race to protect the accused, citing their free speech. The testicle-free administrators and counselors will cave, and accuse the teacher of over-reacting. The result is the teachers cannot win. They cannot be in charge, but are readily available for the blame as the administration/school board duck and cover. It is not likely to change until teachers, and the few capable administrators are allowed the ability, as well as the responsibility, to make the tough decisions most people know need to be made. Less Government involvement/interference with the process. Oh yes, thats going to happen.

What ever happened to no tolerance? Why was this allowed to go on, and why are the school employees who knew but did nothing about it not being prosecuted?

i wish there was a way someone could erect a giant billboard splashed with the names and pictures of all nine of these evil disgusting teens. I hope they get punished to the max the law will allow and I hope that what they did to Phoebe haunts them to the day the die. May the all be left barren and impotent because none of them ever deserve to have children - h*ll, there parents should've aborted THEM!
