Coopersville Hazing: Read the transcript

Look at it this way please. What if YOUR child came home and told you the same thing? You found out it DID happen. What would be your reaction? As parents we try to protect our kids. We tell them that cops and firemen are the good guys. We tell them that IF anything happens at school to go tell a teacher or an adult. Who really failed these kids? We as parents taught our kids from the time they were first starting school. The school as even brought in police officers and firmen and told them that these people were the " GOOD GUYS". I remember back when, the school had an assembly regarding going to your teacher if something happens or an adult. I told mine if something happens in school tell a teacher, heck tell the lunch lady. Bt , what if it happens in school with teachers/ coaches around. Who do your kids turn too? About the money? Seriously look at it this way for a minute. What if your child was in a horrible accident? Would you not want who was responsible to pay for hospital bills or pain and suffering? Your lost wages for having to take them back and forth to doctor appointments or PT? Or even a couselor because they are having nightmares ( flash backs)? This is NO different. Now the amount may be throwing everyone. But its because our school is run by the state and the state is the ones who decide if this is federal crime. The boys involved have already been charged and found quilty. Could you imagine letting these boys back into a school where the victim is still attending? The horrific things that will come out of that? Yes I understand these boys want to graduate with their clasmates. But there has to be a line drawn somewhere. Look ahead to all the "what if's" if these students are allowed back. Just remember we have spent years trying to protect our children and keep them safe and tell them who is good and who is bad. I am pretty sure if they are allowed back there will be a huge protest on this. And then the school will have more problems on their hands. Maybe that is what the school needs. Just food for thought I suppose. I send prayers out to ALL the families. Wishing them peace within.  (Jun 7, 2008 | post #14)

UPDATE: Man charged in coopersville hold-up

Rest assure I am NOT Dan's wife. I've only recently met his wife. No matter how people feel about certian situations that have happened we are all suppose to have compassion and hearts. I fear more for those who have no compassion. But God bless the souls who don't.  (Apr 2, 2008 | post #40)
