    How things have changed from when I was young and the worst thing you could do was post a girl's phone number on the bathroom wall

    Looks like Aisha Chapman needs to pay better attention with what Ajuan is doing with his spare time.

    I have a couple of questions, the first being is if this happened during school hours and using school equipment?
    The second is if it did not, when did schools earn the right to punish a student for something that has occurred off school grounds and time?
    Lastly, since this girl posted the picture on Hearn's Facebook page how does qualify as bullying? As a parent of a daughter, I would hate this to happen to her but I also understand that if my daughter gave some a photo of her own free will that there could very well be consequences which might come of it

    In general, Tweeting and FaceBook have outpaced the maturity level and common sense of the user - at any age!

    To both questions, I don't think we have enough information to decide. I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to this story.

    Not too much info to go on... Why would the school be involved unless it happened while on school grounds or with school equipment?

    Also... if the girl posted the photo online herself first... unless there is evidence she was coerced/forced to do that... then it's already "out there" in the ether so it shouldn't matter who forwards it after that... she posted it.

    Though... IF it is deemed underage pornography, then anyone forwarding it would be guilty of that... BUT also she herself would be guilty as well.

    Too little info to go on here.

    The photo and the story is on the link preceding the original quote. Not pornographic, and more detail in the story.

    Thinking about it, my guess is this whole mess has very little to do with the picture but rather his comment in the tweet

    I didn't have time earlier... but now have read the article. Ok, so the picture is racy but not illegally so and the girl posted it herself (as opposed to it being stolen from her or taken without her permission)...

    So... the only thing left is IF any of this happened on school grounds OR using school equipment. IF it didn't involve school property, then I don't understand what the school has to do with anything involving any kind of punishment even if some punishment is necessary.

    Also... seems like the girl would have to be punished too for posting the picture in the first place.

    The punishment wasnt for posting the picture though. It was for "bullying", which I am guessing has to do with the expletive used in the pictures description. That would explain why the retweeters were not also punished.

    Was it a five digit phone number?

    Back when I was young the worst was posting a Polaroid instant photo on the school bulletin board. I suppose if you were young before instant photos a phone number might be the worst that could be done (other than cave paintings of a fellow student).

    Sorry, 7 digit number (298-7368) is as far back as I go ;)

    I don't recall my school having a bulletin board or at least I had no idea where it was. Not like I ever had to worry about making the honor roll. The only nude picture I can ever remember circulating around was that of Candy Loving, 25th anniversary Playboy Bunny. :D

    In my judgment, the photo isn't pornographic, provocative or even questionable. It looks like part of a swimsuit to me. School admins need to butt out of our kids private lives.
