High school “mean girls” fake sexual assault

In this “Me Too” era, men are being held accountable for sexual misconduct, whether it be unwanted comments, harassment, abuse, or assault. But at least one young man has been punished for things he didn’t even do.

A boy at Seneca Valley High School in Harmony, Pennsylvania, has endured more than a year of hell, after five girls who “didn’t like to look at him” fabricated stories of sexual abuse and fed their lies to school officials, who bought it hook, line, and sinker. Later admitting to conspiring against their classmate, one girl admitted it was all a farce.

But the damage was already done. After the girls’ allegations came to light, the entire school turned on him, ostracizing him and placing “predator” stickers on his back. He was bullied to the point of his parents withdrawing him, to homeschool.

The parents of the boy, who is only identified as T.F., filed a lawsuit against the school, Seneca Valley School district, and the parents of the girls involved, citing multiple court appearances, the losing of their son’s job, juvenile detention, and other hardships he faced, just because some girls didn’t like his face.

The school district defends its actions at the time, reportedly refusing to apologize to T.F. and his family, and insisting the lawsuit against them “is without merit.” So a boy’s life was destroyed, no big deal.

Faculty and students alike at Seneca Valley High School are suddenly rallying around T.F. (who, wisely, will not be returning to their school), inventing hashtags in support of him, wearing t-shirts with his name, and cheering for him at football games he probably isn’t even attending. One has to wonder where these students were when he was being bullied, in the first place.

Mob mentality is at its height in places like schools, when hundreds of students are crowded together and feed off one another, causing riots, collectively singling out the weak from the herd to pick to death. It’s incredibly cruel, and incredibly unnatural. It’s no secret that to be a white male in this country is one of the worst things to be, right now, when you can be vilified merely if a girl looks at you the wrong way. If this is what we see in our schools, what will it be like when this generation is running our country?

The girls appear to be suffering no direct consequences, as the school refuses to mar their academic records with the information, and the district attorney’s office won’t prosecute them.

Kindergarten student discovered by teacher with bag of cocaine in her mouth

A 6-year-old in Philadelphia came dangerously close to a drug overdose, today, when she was found by her kindergarten teacher with a bag of cocaine in her mouth. The little girl believed it to be candy. The teacher, undoubtedly having seen something like it before, suspected it was drugs, and alerted the authorities. The child claimed to have gotten it from the backpack a classmate, who denied it. Both children were sent to the nurse, and then sent home (to refill their stash?), and the remaining 20-plus students were searched. No other drugs were found. The school’s essentially calling it “case closed,” because you know, kids will be kids. What 6-year-old hasn’t had a bag of cocaine in their mouth at some point, after all?

Hardy Williams Elementary is a charter school serving grades K-6. On their website, they state: “Hardy Williams is a special place where your child will experience the joy of learning in a safe, positive environment. We focus on 5 core values: respect, responsibility, hard work, teamwork and kindness.” These values were well represented, today:

  1. Respect was shown to the teacher, as the child spit out the “candy” right away, and did not wind up ingesting any.
  2. Responsibility, because hey, the teacher may not have seen where the child actually acquired said bag of “candy,” but at least she got over there in time, right? I smell a Teacher of the Year award.
  3. Hard work, because it’s no easy task being a 6-year-old dealer. Most kindergartners can’t even hold their pencil properly, and these kids are rolling blunts.
  4. Teamwork, because you’ve got to learn early not to rat out your supplier. No one likes a fink.
  5. Kindness, because kindergarten is all about learning how to share, and taking turns. I wonder who’ll get the bag of candy next time?

A “typical day” is outlined on Hardy Williams’s website, including “dressing in full uniform excited to start their day,” and “2-3 hours of reading where they work in small groups. I’d like to propose a few changes to said schedule:

  • Students come to school dressed in full uniform (complete with extra pockets, for cash, supply, and paraphernalia) excited to find new customers – if only Harvey Williams would add a preschool.
  • The day starts with free breakfast, and a bong.
  • Students are greeted by their stoned teacher and head to their classroom for morning report on how much they’ve sold, and which customers just aren’t paying up.
  • We value reading.  Students have at least 2-3 hours of reading IOUs from customers and supply updates from the cartels.
  • Students have classes in math (bookkeeping – real world connections! and of course measuring and scaling dime bags), social studies (geography – whose corner is whose, and the like), and science (how else are you going to know how to make the “good” meth?).
  • Students head back to the cafeteria to enjoy free lunch (but that’s the only thing that’s free, here – pay up, Timmy, or you won’t be getting your fix this afternoon).
  • Afterwards, students enjoy free play or structured recess (whose thumbs should we break first?).
  • Students engage in art (all those really cool bongs), physical education (running after the squealers), music (when you’re high, everything sounds like music, man) or foreign language (how else are you going to know how to communicate with the cartels down in Mexico?). We are proud to educate the whole child at Mastery (including the part headed straight to prison).
  • Once the school day is over, students may stay to partake in supervised drug use, because we’re nothing if not responsible.

Rest assured: Hardy Williams Elementary School is within 5 miles of no less than a dozen police stations. I, for one, think all that law enforcement is definitely helping stem the tide of the drug crisis in our nation’s schools.
