    I think it is terrible that this girl has done such an inappropriate thing and caused at least a dozen young boys who happen to be my friends legal and social pain. She should be ashamed of herself. Especially since they all got suspended and the administration at Okemos did nothing to her. It is a ridiculous double standard. She should at least be suspended.

    I commented on the thread about the Pickney girl, and what I said there, goes for this story too. I will say, in addition, that what I thought would happen, has happened. Because of the big deal they made over the Pickney girl, now other students are trying the same thing to see if they can get away with it. That's what I said would happen, and it has, so "I told you so" applies here. Here's a simple solution. Either take away cell phones from the students (yes, it's the students doing the behavior, but it's the the same thing as not allowing guns in the schools), take away the cell phones, and that would solve part of the problem. Why are they needed in class? As for the parent's responsibility: they need to NOT get a cell phone for their teen that has a camera, or internet access...problem solved. If they need a cell phone to be able to call the parent for a ride after school, then a simple cell phone with none of those features is all that's needed.

    I think that this should not be on the news. The girl probably feels bad enough and it is tearing her apart seeing and hearing a bunch of rumors about her. The school should be keeping it on the down low to save it reputation and the students. Although now it is already out the press needs to back off and give individuals there space. All people make mistakes and need to be given another chance and start fresh.

    Why do students need cell phones in school anyway? Teachers and adminstration should have phones, but not students. It disrupts their education and the phone is more of a status symbol, which schools can do without.

    You know...a lot of kids make it seem like it is not a big deal, but it is. Although, you do have to realize that these kids probably regret what they did. What makes it worse, is when a teacher makes an unneeded comment about it, when they don't know what is going on...hurting their students....

    Gee, maybe they should STOP putting this type of thing on the news. Kids think its funny using cell phones in this manner. Lets keep giving them all sorts of ideas....keep it on the news for them all to see!
