I think that if the kids were drinking that's one thing but if they went to the party saw what was going on and left(removed theirselves from the situation) I think they shouldn't be in trouble. Also the Football coach gets fired then the pictures show up. It's been said that Mr. Myers own daughters turned the pictures in because no one would support their father at the board meeting. I believe it was blackmail and maliciousness on the part of the coach. Let's sum it up this way "If I'm fired then guess what I'm getting even"! That's how I see it. As far as rehab. and community service goes that's not the schools place to sentence the kids it's the laws job. No law was involved. If the kids in the picture were drinking then suspend them but if they weren't then don't go there. This happened 5 or 6 years ago and it involved wrestlers and swimmers and the police busted the party. Now the kicker is that the school suspended the wrestlers but not the swimmers. Well let's just say the wrestlers were not champions the swimmers were. See it's all about winning. Yes the board had to reverse that decision also. It's who you are and who your related to in Watkins. Suspend the students that you have proof were drinking and let it go the school is not the law.
