For the children - SWAT teams and sexual harrassment

Under the heading WTF? How can this be happening in America? A SWAT team descended on a high school student's home and confiscated $20,000 worth of electronics because he changed the headline of a story about a football game on the school website from "defeated" to "crushed." He didn't even hack into the site. His web design teacher gave him permissions so he could work on upgrading it. Couldn't they have just given him detention?

Even more incredible, During the 2005-06 school year, 28 kindergarten students in Maryland were suspended for sex offenses, including sexual assault, sexual harassment and sexual activity, according to state data. Are they effin' kidding me?

In my day they called it playing doctor and if you were caught, usually your parents gave you a spanking and sent you to your room for a couple of days. I wonder if these 5 year olds will have to register as sex offenders?
