Condom Toss Gets Student Tossed Out Of School
From WTCV, Channel 9 (ABC )
(MY HERO OF THE DAY FOLKS!!!!!)



A prank pulled by a Red Bank High senior has resulted in a ten day suspension from school.
Josh Eustice says he was trying to educate his classmates about having safe sex.
But his actions angered school officials.
The senior was modeling tuxedos for Red Bank's upcoming prom.
As he walked off stage at the packed gym assembly last Friday, he tossed out condoms to his classmates.
He was in trouble before he got off the stage.

Eustice treads lightly at home and in school this afternoon.
His dad gave him a long list of house cleaning chores after the Red Bank senior tossed about 30 condoms to his classmates last Friday.
And his assistant principal suspended him for ten days.
That makes Josh bristle.
Eustice said, "I don't agree with the ten days at all. I mean I didn't throw out anything illegal that was hazardous like cigarettes or anything. People have done much worse things and got suspended for much less days."

The senior says the prom fair in a packed gym seemed the appropriate stage.
He adds he threw out the single condoms to protect his classmates after Red Bank's prom.
"I did it more or less for a reminder so people would think about stuff like that. STD's and pregnancies and stuff like that it happens all the time."

Josh admits he didn't mind the attention, but the school wishes it would go away.
Principal Wade Kelly said this was an internal discipline issue, stood behind the harsh punishment and says he's frustated to be second guessed.

1. This kid is a HERO
and that nitwit principal should be FIRED.

Condoms are LEGAL and he did make his classmates think about what sex means.

That is an education they desperately need.

6. Done and kick.
Let the punishment fit WHAT crime, reward Josh and be proud of what he did rather than punish him.

5. If he threw 5.56 bullets with "Enlist!" written on them...
he'd probably get a scholarship to Oral Roberts University.
