I totally agree, whoever gave him the thought about doing the drug thing should be hunted down and arrested because Tyler is an awesome person. He is one of my closest friends and I don't believe its right at all. Sure he had the drugs but they should really try to find the person that gave the Marijuana to Tyler

The people commenting on this are only sticking up for this stupid teen because they themselves are probably users of these drugs. The girl that overdosed was known to be messed up in the head as well as a "druggie." Tyler knew what he was doing, and I do believe that he should be treated for the charges. Obviously if he had these drugs in his car he has issues of his own, maybe a little jail time will help him figure out what is right.
On a different topic the adults in the Byron school system are oblivious to what actually goes on. Pleanty of kids use in the school, but the school fails to take proper actions for this.
Tyler deserves whatever he is dealt and I feel it should be harsh. Teach him, and other kids thinking about doing what he did to make better decisions!

Destroying a kid legally and all that entails for a lifetime over drugs is worse than the kid even experimenting with drugs in the first place.

STOP this insanity you call the drug war. It's not a war on drugs, it's a war on people. We have no business declaring war on each other especially when we're all hypocrites.

I never liked the kid to begin with. I personally hope he gets the maximum sentence. No one forced him to do what he did, it was all his choice. Oh and fyi, the girl that overdosed isn't messed up in the head or what you call a "druggie" Dont start accusing her and calling her things that she's not until you no all of the facts. And tyler was a straight A kid. He didn't have the need to use or sell drugs but he decided to anyways. Ya live and ya learn and ya learn a lot of stuff the hard way. And the best way to learn stuff and to remember it is to learn it the hard way. Like it or not, thats my opinion. If you don't like it, i really don't care. Get over it

This is just typical Byron drama; school officials drum up something into a local-media fiasco to try to make out-of-touch parents feel like the school is keeping their children safe in lieu of the said parents' virtual absence in their child's life. Students bring drugs to school? How is this a headline? In what alternate universe did anyone post-1950 live where this didn't happen? At risk of sounding like an old timer, students brought drugs to school in my day, they did it in my parents day, and of course they are now. The world is not ending, this is old hat. Guess where those prescription drugs come from? The Rolling Stones' song "Mother's Little Helper" sums up the matter, and that was written 45 years ago(!)

Does anyone remember a few years back when Byron football players were hazing/sexually assaulting newcomers? I'm sure you'll recall how quickly they tried to brush that one under the rug, because it had to do with something the teachers and school officials value and draw money from--organized sports. When it comes to students other than their star athletes, Byron is notorious for throwing them under the bus and claiming it as some sort of victory.

Just shameful.

Comment to "beleive it"... First of all just because someone sticks up for another does not make them a user.
Secondly, Tyler made a big mistake you are correct on that, but punishing him HARSHLY and to be used as a example for the ONE mistake rather than helping him and other realize the mistake and change for the better, simply does not make sence.
He may be 18, but only an adult by months. Yes, he should be punished for what he has done, and to be made an example of in a possitive way rather than HARSHLY.
He is a good kid, straight A student as quoted by a fellow student, who made a bad choice give him a chance to make right what he did wrong. Seriously, if he is so horrible what is jail time going to do for him or anyone else for that matter? Jail time or HARSH treatment will not change someone who will repeat later. How about a little kindness and helping your fellow person. He is a kid who made a big mistake lets help him learn so he does not do it again.

Dumb ****, aka "A concerned Mom," I know who Kyle Keyes and AJ Worth are that commented before me so I do know for a fact that they have partaken in a fair share of drugs. And John Smith, I agree with Hart that Tyler deserves everything he will get. It was his choice, and if he actually cared about his future he wouldn't have made those choices. I personally could care less if he isn't able to get a good job in the future. Pretty sure that I wouldn't want a person that sold drugs to other children working for, or with me anyways. So, I hope that Tyler suffers the consequences and learns that he made a stupid mistake!

So this is what the useless pigs are wasting time on? A few scripts and some green? This is bs; spending all this time and effort on a harmless individual. Do these ignorant police not realize there are hundreds of thizzles and gram upon gram of blow circulating WI schools EVERY day?

If you've ever dealt with Tyler Lanand long enough, you would know that he is super aware of what's going on in his life and the consequences. You'd also know that he is an extremely manipulative person. So more than likely, he knew what he was doing and knew what could potentially happen if he got caught. On the other hand, he is an extreme conformist and will do anything to fit in. So if he thought it was the "cool" thing to do, he'd do it. Ultimately, he's a teenager, it's what teenagers do.(not all, but a lot.) Tyler should definately be punished, but maybe not as harshly as they want. It would destroy his whole life. He got caught, he's probably scared sh!tless, let that and some community service be his punishment. Not to mention having to face his mother now is going to be punishment enough.

Give him the jail time!! this isnt his first time f*ck!ng up. Not many people kno, but about a year ago he posted nude pics of one of his ex's on the internet with ALL her personal info!! Name, number, ADDRESS!! He wasn't even supposed to HAVE the picture. and she was 17! This kid knows EXACTLY what he's doing and he was completely aware of the consequences. I like Tyler, and I feel bad that this happened to him, but he's a **** deep down. plain and simple. I feel that whatever he gets, whether that be a slap on the wrist or jail time, he deserves it.

before you call people dumb whatevers, take a look in the mirror. If you know these kids as you say you do and if they are using you must be their supplier and you give them the drugs for free, because one kid has no money. besides that if he was using with the numbers of adults he has in his life it would be impossible for him to go undetected as a user that you claim he is. you don't know half of the information that you claim you do. maybe we need to find out who you are and have the police talk with you - question are you trying to take some focus off of you????? just something to think about..
