55. The Blunt Truth
Edited on Tue Oct-28-03 01:28 PM by jiacinto
What if this girl was serious and then a shooting took place? Then people everywhere--along with many DUers--would be asking "why did the school district not do anything?" The school district would then face lawsuits and left and right.

The district did what they thought was appropriate to protect them from getting sued. Period. That's what it's really about.

What they should have done, IMO, is refer the matter to the school psychologist. They then should have called the parents. They should have evaluated the girl's mental state and then taken whatever appropriate action they deemed necessary.
