Former Student Owen Labrie at St. Paul’s School Acquitted of Felony Sexual Assault … Convicted on Three Counts of Misdemeanor Sexual Assault (VIDEO)
One more “Senior Salute” to women for the St. Paul’s Prep School …
Owen Labrie, a former student at the prestigious New England prep-school, The St. Paul’s School in Concord, NH, has been found not guilty and acquitted of the three felony rape charges and of misdemeanor simple assault. Each of the felony charges could have carried uo to 20 years in prison. However, Labrie was convicted on three counts of misdemeanor sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and a felony count of using a computer to seduce a minor under 16, which requires him to register as a sex offender. Labrie was originally accused of raping the girl in May 2014 at their boarding academy in what Prosecutors said he did it as part of a ritual called the “Senior Salute,” in which graduating seniors try to have sex with underclassmen. WOW, what a special tradition from a prep-school that cost over $55,000 a year to attend. One would think that maybe with this type of education, the St Pal School could teach a little character and crack down on this disgusting tradition.
Both the victim and Lebrie cried during the reading of the verdict.
A former New Hampshire prep school student accused of raping a freshman girl as part of a campus tradition was acquitted Friday of the most serious charges against him.
Owen Labrie, now 19, was cleared of three counts of felony sexual assault, each of which carried up to 20 years in prison. He was convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault and a separate felony charge that carries up to seven years.
Labrie sobbed in court as the verdict — reached by a jury of three women and nine men — was read.

Labrie will face sentencing on Oct. 29, and is out on $15,000 bail in the meantime. He must adhere to a 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew and turn over his passport.
Owen Labrie, of Vermont, had received a full scholarship to Harvard, which was put on hold, and had planned to go to divinity school after graduating from college. Ain’t that something. I guess he can kiss Harvard goodbye and have fun the rest of his life as a registered sex offender.
4 People Threatened With Jail Time for Cheering Too Loudly at Highschool Graduation in Senatobia, Mississippi
DOES ANYONE THINK THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD APPROVE OF THIS INSANITY?
Four people have been charged with disturbing the peace for cheering to loudly at a high school graduation ceremony in Senatobia, Mississippi. UNREAL. What has this country come to when you have to sit on your hands and be quiet as your child, sister, brother, etc. graduates at long last from high school? Are you telling me that a school system cannot extend the length of a graduation ceremony so that loved ones can clap, cheer and shout out to the graduates? But what would you expect from the public school education system of today that tries to control heart, mind and thought. Schools have become buildings of indoctrination. The parents have had no issue with the liberal agendas forced on their children, what is one more over-reaching rule? Henry Walker, one of the individuals cited with disturbing the peace said, “It’s crazy. The fact that I might have to bond out of jail, pay court costs, or a $500 fine for expressing my love, it’s ridiculous man. It’s ridiculous.” YES IT IS. The four individuals charged are expected to appear in court on June 9.
It would be hard to believe that a judge would not throw this case out or the charges are dropped prior to going to court due to bad PR. But then again, many current rules, regulations and laws make it hard to believe that we still live in the United States of America.
Four people were charged with disturbing the peace after cheering too loudly at a high school graduation ceremony in Senatobia, Miss., Memphis television station WREG reported on Tuesday.
Police at Northwest Mississippi Community College, where the ceremony was held, told WREG that Senatobia Municipal School District Superintendent Jay Foster, told attendees at the ceremony to refrain from cheering and applause until the end of the ceremony.
Four people, including Ursula Miller and Henry Walker (pictured above), both of whom are black, were asked to leave the ceremony after cheering on the graduates.
When Lanarcia Walker graduated, Miller yelled out her niece’s name.
“When she went across the stage I just called her name out. ‘Lakaydra’. Just like that,” Miller told WREG.
Gee, why didn’t they just handcuff these criminals for cheering or taser them? (sarcasm intended)
A note to the the folks at TMP, stop making this a racial thing. This has nothing to do with race, it has to do with typical liberal stupidity in our educational system. The libs have no problem with the liberal indoctrination of students from K thru high school. Suddenly they find fault with the system when it goes against their freedom of speech.
Take a look at the school district superintendents message below from the districts webpage. Hey dude, part of placing a strong emphasis on the success of all students in all aspects of the school experience…academically, socially, emotionally, and physically is to celebrate their graduation with squelching the speech and joy of their loved ones in celebrating their success.

Our goal is to set a standard for excellence in all academic areas as well as the co-curricular activities. Senatobia teachers focus on success for each student by creating opportunities where students are actively engaged in acquiring not only knowledge, but also skills necessary for lifelong learners.
All students are important in Senatobia schools, and we place strong emphasis on the success of all students in all aspects of the school experience…academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

The SCOTUS Reject Free Speech Appeal over Cinco de Mayo School Dispute Filed by 3 Students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA
The Supreme Court of Mexico rejected Cinco de Mayo school dispute appeal … T0o bad it was the Supreme Court of the United States … What happened to the Country I grew up in?
Reuters reports that the SCOTUS rejected the on Monday appeal and left in tact a lower courts ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the United States flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo. REALLY? So a school can tell American students in America to remove their American flag shirts because it would cause an incident at an American school. Honestly, what the “F” happened to this once great nation? Justice isn’t just blind at the SCOTUS, it also appears to be stupid.
Just curious, who thinks that the SCOTUS would have decided 180 degrees different if the school officials had asked the Mexican students to take off their shirts with the Mexican flag on it so not to insight a riot? Or if it were black students who were made to take off shirts that might cause an incident? Or if Gay-Lesbian students were forced to take off their rainbow shirts for fear of causing an incident? I think we all know the answer.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact an appeals court ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the U.S. flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.
The court declined to hear an appeal filed by three students at Live Oak High School in the town of Morgan Hill, south of San Francisco. School staff at the May 5, 2010, event told several students their clothing could cause an incident. Two chose to leave for home after refusing to turn their shirts inside out.
The school had been experiencing gang-related tensions and racially charged altercations between white and Hispanic students at the time. School officials said they feared the imposition of American patriotic imagery by some students at an event where other students were celebrating their pride in their Mexican heritage would incite fights between the two groups.
What part that this is America doesn’t the Supreme Court quite not get? Only in America is it considered a bad thing to wear something patriotic. This is just pathetic. Unlike in Mexico, citizens are supposed to have rights in the United States. Supreme Court, that means all citizens, including white Americans.
Just so everyone understands, Cinca de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, it celebrates the defeat of the French army during the Battle of Puebla in Mexico on May 5, 1862. Mexico’s Independence Day is on Dieciséis de Septiembre, but that doesn’t quite have the same ring does it? However let’s get real, today Cinco de Mayo has become more of an American holiday than a Mexican one giving folks the excuse to suck down some Margaritas and some cervezas like Negra Modelo, Dos Equis, Tecate or Corona.

LAPD have arrested 10 male Venice High students in connection with a series of sex crimes that began more than a year ago and involved at least two underage female classmates.

The alleged assaults dated back to December 2013, although most of the incidents occurred in the past two months. Cmdr.

Ten students at Venice High School were arrested Friday, and four other minors were being sought for a series of alleged sexual assaults involving two female victims, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
A possible sexual assault was reported on Tuesday by school officials to the LAPD’s Special Assault Section, LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said at a news conference.

They were expected to be charged with unlawful sex with minors and forced oral copulation.
“Some of these were forced sexual acts, sexual assaults. Others were consensual with individuals who are too young to give consent,” Smith said.

What gives a right for a student to assault a teacher in today’s society … taking away their cell phone of course.
Darri Stephens, director of Digital Learning, Common Sense and a former member of Teach for America, appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss the recent attack by a 16 year old punk at JFK High School in Paterson, NJ. What might be as bad as the attack on the innocent teacher, was the fact that the 62 year old educator did not fight back, in fear of losing his job if he did and that no one came to the teachers aide. They all moved away and instead of breaking up the fight, they recorded it on their cell phone to post on YouTube. After Darri Stephens discussed how we change the dynamic of “school culture” in our schools, F&F’s host Steve Doocy added, “but we are leaving something out and that is the parents.” Steve opined, “the parents in students lives are a big part of the back ground and the character of the students we put in the schools.”
“I think is what is more worrisome is the fact that the other students stood back and what we call ‘bystanders’. How can we build empathy in kids to stand up and have the confidence to get involved or at least get help. How do we build that positive school culture nowadays in our classrooms?”
Student at JFK High School Attacks 62 Year Old Teacher for Taking Away the Punks Cell Phone in Paterson, NJ
LET ME GUESS, AL SHARPTON WILL SAY THAT THE TEEN WAS PROVOKED TO TAKE THESE ACTIONS …
A black 16 year old thug student attacked a 62 year old teacher at JFK High School in Paterson, New Jersey after the teacher had taken away his cell phone. The teen was charged with third degree aggravated assault charges. The teen punk was arrested and has been suspended from school. Sadly, instead of any brave souls in the room coming to the aid of the teacher, someone in the classroom recorded the assault, which officials say took place at about 1 pm on Tuesday, and the video has been posted on YouTube. You can actually see some students walking away from the attack saying, “I’m out” and that they didn’t want any part of this. Profiles in bravery.
This is just another example of the sad state of affairs in our inner city schools. The reason why I say “our” is because I have been in JFK High as well as near by East Side High and many of the apartment complexes in this neighborhood back in the day as a result of work. Those that would call others racist for having an educated opinion. The lack of respect that black males teens show for teachers isjust another example of the lack of respect for authority. What else would you call this but a lack of respect for authority? Who man-handles a teacher? Imagine if the white, 62 year old teacher had made any effort to wrestle or fight with the student, let alone defend himself? Sharpton, Jackson and the NAACP would be marching in the streets of Paterson with the mantra, “Black’s cell phones matter” and “Stand up, don’t take my cell phone away”. (Sarcasm intended)
Aggravated assault charges have been filed against a northern New Jersey high school student who allegedly attacked his 62-year-old teacher in a dispute over a cellphone.
The incident occurred Tuesday at John F. Kennedy High School in Paterson, when the teacher allegedly confiscated a phone from a student.
The phone’s owner, another youth identified only as a 16-year-old boy, soon tried to get the phone back.
“He has no respect for anybody. There are rules every where you go.”
The district filed a complaint against the student earlier this week, a spokeswoman said, and Paterson police said they arrested him at his home on Friday.
“We took a statement from the teacher today,” said Capt. Heriberto Rodriguez. “After that, we went out and found the juvenile and arrested him.” The teenager was charged with third-degree aggravated assault, the captain said.
David Cozart, principal of operations at JFK, said the incident happened during a physics class.
He said the teacher apparently confiscated the phone — which belonged to the assailant — from another student. The principal said students are allowed to use cellphones in class for academic purposes, but staff may take the devices and return them at the end of the day if students use them for other reasons.
District officials have not revealed the name of the teacher or student. Peter Tirri, president of the Paterson Education Association, the teachers union, said the teacher has worked in the district since 2003.
“Let me say that this is a very upsetting incident and certainly one that we take seriously as the safety of our students and staff is our top priority,” said Terry Corallo, district spokeswoman.
She said the student while on suspension will receive home instruction and a disciplinary hearing will determine “an appropriate, educational placement” for the rest of the school year.
“I’m disappointed I didn’t see any other kids in the classroom help [the teacher] out,” Tirri said about the events depicted in the short video. “Maybe they were afraid. I don’t know.”
“What strikes me is that the teacher never even defended himself,” said Lee McNulty, a retired JFK teacher who has been vocal recently with criticism about violence and disorder in the high school. “That just shows how much teachers are afraid of losing their job.”
Taliban Terrorists Attack School … Kill 126 People, Most Children, Take Hostages in Peshawar, Pakistan (VIDEO) (Update: 141 Dead)
Yup, you got terrorism is on the run President Obama …
Bahramand Khan, director of information for the regional Chief Minister’s Secretariat, said at least 126 people were killed and 122 wounded. A group of Taliban gunman attacked the school and murdered children in response to the Pakistan military launching a military offense against them. This is their justification, slaughtering children?
At least 126 people, most of them children, were killed on Tuesday when Taliban gunmen stormed a school in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, taking hundreds of students hostage in the bloodiest insurgent attack in the country in years.
Troops surrounded the building and an operation was underway to rescue children still trapped inside, the army said.
Hours into the siege, three explosions were heard inside the military-run high school, and a Reuters journalist at the scene said he heard heavy gunfire.
Outside, as helicopters rumbled overhead, police struggled to hold back distraught parents who were trying to break past a security cordon and get into the school.
Bahramand Khan, director of information for the regional Chief Minister’s Secretariat, said at least 126 people were killed and 122 wounded.
All six attackers are said by officials to have been killed but the security forces are still checking for bombs they may have left.
Scores of survivors are being treated in hospitals as frantic parents search for news of their children.
The attack is the deadliest ever by the Taliban in Pakistan.
The BBC’s Shahzeb Jillani in Karachi says the militants appear to have been intent on killing as many students as possible – rather than taking hostages, as initially thought.

An assault led by the Taliban on a Pakistan military-run school Tuesday left 141 people dead, 132 of which were children, officials say, in the worst attack to hit the country in years.
The horrific attack in Peshawar, carried out by a relatively small number of militants from the Tehreek-e-Taliban group, a Pakistani militant group trying to overthrow the government, also sent dozens of wounded flooding into local hospitals as terrified parents searched for their children.
Pakistani military spokesman Asim Bajwa told a news conference Tuesday that 132 of the dead were children and another nine were staff members.
He said there were seven attackers, who all wore explosive vests.
UPDATE II: Country shuts down today to mourn deaths.
President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and other political leaders and people from all walks of life Tuesday strongly condemned the cowardly terrorist attack on Army Public School in Peshawar in which many precious human lives were lost.
They expressed sorrow and grief over the loss of precious human lives in the attack. They also expressed deep sympathies with the bereaved families and directed the authorities concerned to provide the best medical assistance to the injured. They also reiterated that such coward attacks cannot deter the resolve and morale of Pakistani nation, adding that operation against militants would continue till the elimination of last terrorist.
The prime minister and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister announced the three-day mourning over the tragedy.The prime minister also called a meeting of all the parliamentary parties at Governor’s House today (Wednesday) at 11.00 am to discuss the situation arising out of the terrorist attack at the Army Public School and College.
