If they charged this girl the other three should be charged as well.

Exactly.

Teen age girls can be the worst when it comes to harassing those who may appear butch.

Solution would be a prolonged detention class dedicated to sensitivity training.

That is one solution, but as I said if one girl faces criminal charges so should the others.

Detention is one thing but if these parents face having to pay to defend their little darlings from criminal charges, I think that will make a greater impact on the girls.

A CLEAR case of selective prosecution.

What if we didn't let the government be in charge of "education"?

True. It is an example of arbitrary and capricious Texas justice.

Sensitivity training has specific goals to prevent violence against minorities.

Isn't that the fox guarding the hen house?

I am all for training majorities that they have no right to violate the rights of minorities, that is what it is all about in a Republic compared to a Democracy where the majority rules.

I have been to both private schools and the government run public schools as well as what is called home schooling. I must have protected my gay cousin at least 100 times in the government run public schools because nothing, and I do mean nothing was done to stop violence against my gay cousin. In the private schools as with home schooling there was not a single incident of a bully calling him a name or threatening violence because he was gay.

My comment was meant to suggest that if the government was not in charge the students might have received that sensitivity training and the incidence would not have happened. In private schools the school officials are paid to see that violence does not happen where in the government schools teachers do not teach right and wrong.

No it isn't.

Public schools are full of insensitive kids. Private schools have higher standards. They can kick you out for just about anything. Yea, I see your point. Public schools often function down to the lowest common denominator. No wonder some kids nut out and go on a rampage.
