What I would like to know is why didn't the school staff escort the 2 white girls out? The school should be held accountable for the actions it did not take to prevent the fight. As a well established white male, I am very ashamed and embarrassed by the actions of these 2 white girls.
My sympathy reaches out to the parent and daughter. This should never have occurred.
Mr. Anderson - I couldn't agree with you more. Why weren't those two White girls romoved from the auditoriam and asked to leave the school building and property? They were obviously causing a disruption... disrepecting not only the Black girl who was performing but all the people seated near them there to see the show. I'll say this with confidence: If those two girls causing the disturbance were Black, they would have not only been removed from the auditorium, but escorted off the premisis by the Stratford Police.

I cannot believe those two girls were not immediately removed from the building. I wonder if the situation were reversed and it was two black girls shouting out racial slurs what the outcome would have been.

These girls' parents should be ashamed of themselves, including the black girl's mother. Better to walk out like a lady with your head held high than in handcuffs.

Yea right. The white girls at Bunnell would not be all snobby and snooty cause someone named John Harkins was the Mayor? You're more ignorant than those stupid little girls.

Bunnell Administrators and Teachers ALL admitted that these two white girls taunted and yelled racial remarks at the black girl while she was performing on stage and they never took action or contacted the police. Why? This melee could have been avoided. Lets see how fast the BOE & Cornish will act now. This type of behavior never took when OC (Ray O'Connell)was in charge!
For Weizel, you're still the haircomb bandit for even mentioning SHS!

Our gem of a high school is a joke.
Lets report the truth, this school would be in the paper every day for negative issues.
It's got a $2 million football field with 24hr video surveillance

And the Town is worse than it ever was. The Demacraps and Miron have completely screwed up Stratford.
A real mayor would step in and try to fix these problems.
The future of Stratford is dependent on changing the direction our town has taken. Our town government and leaders must reestablish trust with the people and must commit themselves to putting Stratford above personal gain. Our Republican Town Council has attempted to do this but, unfortunately, others in town government have not been as open to this concept. I have watched our town fall deeper and deeper into turmoil and as the rancor between the Mayor and the people has gotten louder, as the headlines and news stories have become more disheartening.The only way to change this is to change the person leading our town. Never has an election been as important to our town as the election this November. It is our duty as citizens to come together and bring about the change Stratford needs.
Last year I formed a committee for the purpose of exploring my potential candidacy for the Office of Mayor. I have spoken to members of the community and have been encouraged by the support that has been forthcoming. Many people have come to me or called and asked me if I was planning on running for Mayor in 2009. My decision has became clear.
I have decided to seek the Office of Mayor in 2009. This is a major undertaking. I am asking for your help as a citizen of Stratford who, wants to see our town prosper and flourish. I believe the involvement is vital to the success of Stratford. I love this town and believe it can be a town that all others will be envious of.
The next Mayor will face many complex issues. From managing the fragile fiscal situation, to reestablishing trust with our town employees, to ensuring that town services are provided to all our citizens in a cost effective and customer friendly manner, the next Mayor must hit the ground running . This is a seven day a week 24 hour a day job. Not only am I prepared and up to this task, I am looking forward to it.
Working together with you I believe we can successfully guide the Town to a position of pride, security and cost effectiveness. This is the time when we need to come together and present a united effort.
I hope that you will support my decision. I am very interested in your thoughts and ideas. I encourage you to contact me if you would like to discuss an issue of importance that we can work together on. I look forward to talking with you soon.
Thank you for your consideration.

and to all you morons who need to know where the dads are(but I can't see what that has to do with anything); well seeing how the 2 white girls live in stratford, their fathers are out working hard to pay the high taxes to LIVE in this town. both of these girls come from a 2 parent household, not that it is any of your fucking business.
