    Not really enough info in the article to see if it was an acceptable punishment. If the kids had been repeatedly talked to about this and the punishments grew and grew - suspension might have been the only option left on the punishment scale. It did say that they were repeat offenders. GI problems? get a doctors note and it goes away.

    At my high school you get suspended for missing class if you skip the detention and then skip the saturday school for missing the detention. I am not saying it was necessary but we don't know the whole story.

    Dude. He farted on a bus. Farted... I don't care how many times he did it. It happens. That's ridiculous no matter how you look at it.

    If you are in Indiana you can't refuse a police officer wanting to search your home anymore, warrant/no warrant. Any reason. This happened because govt. authority can do whatever the fuck they feel like anymore.

    I am not saying it isn't rediculous - I am just saying that none of us have the real story on what happened nor will we ever considering you can believe mainstream media. We don't know if there is a pattern of him (them) doing this for attention, if this was an "accident", a medical problem. If it is a repeated not acceptable behavior and he has been disciplined before for it then yes suspension may be an appropriate course of punishment.

    With that said there is a general lack of parental and student civility, respect and ownership of one's self that is taking place in society today. In my decade of being an educator I have never seen such "helpless" parents and such disrespect for anyone by the current teenage generation.

    Honestly the 80's generation is seriously screwing up society with the type of children they are raising. My only hope is that my generation is seeing what is going on and will take us back to the day where it was ok to dicipline your child, teach them what is acceptable in public, how to treat adults, how to hold a job, that making less than 15.00 an hour is ok when you are in high school, that you don't need or get to have a brand new vehicle, etc.

    kids need to live in fear of their parents, and need to be disciplined accordingly. too much government intervention, pretty soon you wont even be able to yell at your child.

    on that note, he fuckin farted. big deal. its not like he took a shit in the middle of the aisle.

    You still won't get the whole story. The kid will lie to help his case, the parents will lie to help their son or make his case look better in the lawsuit, the admin will fudge the truth to fit the punishment, the "witnessess" have the collective short term memory of a gold fish and the bus driver is jaded because he has to spend more time with these whippersnappers than their own parents do. The only hope for the truth is if there was a Youtube shaky as hell camera phone video shot and that has gone viral. But by that time there we will need to wade through all of the "remixes" and "autotunes' of the event.

    I teach journalism and work in a school - it isn't much work for me. It is a reality I deal with every day. But I would rather be here than anywhere else.

    I guess it could be one thing if he is sitting there farting not bringing too much attention to it.
    I could see him getting this punishment if he is busting ass in peoples faces or trying to get the whole bus going for it.

    Things have changed since that time - back then cartoons were on Saturday morning and Looney Toons weren't considered "bad for children"

    Fuck you (^.^)/, next time look in to something before you think you are funny.

    Court: No right to resist illegal cop entry into home

    Guess its possible it's fake, everything you have ever heard or seen is debatable

    the case that stems from is when the police had probable cause to investigate a domestic dispute that started outside the dwelling. youre taking it far too literally.

    Didn't you read the article? Maybe you need to go back to school and relearn some reading comprehension skills. It doesn't matter what it stems from. They can do it for anything/reason. I don't think you understand how case law works in this country.

    Yes I read it, I also comprehend that a state can't pass laws that contradict a Federal Law. Eventually this will get repealed because it's an illegal law.

    Maybe it's because I'm so laid back, but I'm not worried about it.
