One news report stated: "a student's parents offered to pay for damages" - really? Nice, but is an injustice being created by not allowing the student to accept the consequences of his actions?

. I have to agree with you if it was a black making racial threats they would have them in juvenile by now and expelled for the next two years but because they are white they get they hand tapped and that is not right a prank is playing hurt wetting people putting plastic wrap on the toilet so they can't use the bathroom but to put on them thin cheap sheets over there head and threats saying the south will rise I don't think stuttgart can handle those kind of threats they need to deal with them and they should be seniors again next year when they return maybe they can learn the difference between prank and threats

Wrong color to be racist. Trayvon got shot and all hell broke loose, Oklahoma baseball player gets shot and it hasn't hardly hit the news. Middle class white man is the most discriminated against person in the country.

What's racist about that statement? Black folks always looking for something to cry about. Cry over the hoodies not the statement!!!

Race is not just between white and black! When will people realize that!? What happen at the school was wrong. But I'm disappointed how the new handled it. The school should have never allowed the media to get involved!!

The race we should be worried about are them towel heads! Instead us Americans are Turning into other countries that just kill eachother for no reason! It's disgusting to me!!!

They didn't run through the halls during school hours dressed in kkk gear screaming "the south will rise again". If they would have painted this on the side of Walmart dressed in kkk gear would everyone still say the kids needed to be thrown out of school. NO! They need to be punished for defacing school property and that should be turned over to the law.

Right! They need to be punished for being idiots and vandalizing school property but thrown out of school, no way! How is depriving them of an education going to help them?

They were kids doing something stupid that in their little minds they thought was funny. it wasnt funny and i can guarantee you now they are not laughing. They need to pay for it be on punishment at school and home, but honestly kicking them out of school is not the answer. They did something they will regret for a long time. But their right to an education should not be taken away.

I think first everyone should realize that the boy's pictured in with the KKK outfits on WERE NOT the same boy's that painted on the school. That was a week before and totally different kids! They do deserve punishment without a doubt, but the media is who put the 2 pictures side by side

Really? So they weren't dress up like clan members? Wow now the media needs to be made to correct their error.
