CNN.com has the story of ten middle schoolers who, whilst on a field trip to Washington, DC, decided to have an orgy in one of the hotel rooms. Clearly, this is not something you can tolerate on a school class trip, but interestingly, only eight kids seem to have been punished. . . and they were expelled from school.
This seems weird on any number of levels. There is nothing in the article that discusses what punishment – if any – was given to the remaining two kids, which is the kind of reporting I think we’ve all come to expect from CNN. What happened to those kids, and why was their punishment not the same as everyone else’s? Perhaps the two kids were simply not very effective at having sex – or even remarkably ugly – and therefore technically not guilty of the same crime. . .
And one has to wonder what the punishment would have been if these same ten kids had gotten into a fight. Would they have been expelled for that? I guess it would depend on the severity of the fight. If so, this must have been some very severe sex.
But as usual, those of us who like to think and stuff are left scratching our heads over another story broadcast on CNN.
