Farts in Your General Direction
No Gas in Class!

Police in Florida arrest a 12-year-old boy for farting in class.  School administrators are so lame they let law enforcement officers do the “disciplining.”  Police say on November 4th, the boy “deliberately passed gas to disrupt the class.”  He is also accused of shutting off the computers of fellow students at Stuart’s Spectrum Jr./Sr. High School.

The boy confessed to police and was turned over to his mother.

The Smoking Gun has a copy of the police report.

  1. I write a low brow story and suddenly the NY Times and Washington Post are linked to me. Weird.

    Suzanne, if I read this in fiction, I wouldn’t believe it!

  2. Helen, this is such poor management of a classroom. That kid should have had detention. If he’s been a habitual behavior problem, then there should be some non-news-making intervention. Arrested is just nuts.

  3. Yes, arresting a 12-year old for farting in class is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. I can’t believe the police were willing to get involved!

  4. the words “travesty”,”miscarriage”,”abomination” and “flat-out disgrace” hardly come close to how I want to describe the justice (or a disturbing grand lack there of) carried out in this situation. At first, all I did was shake my head and chuckle but the more I thought about it,the less sense it made.
    It is a rectal boil on the face of the justice system!
    (or what was once a decent system)

  5. i love how impeaching bush for crimes against the constitution is just insane, but sicking the cops on farting teenager is an appropriate distribution of justice….

    wait, was the kid wearing a flag pin? cuz if he was, I know of a way to make this all disappear…

    munch the porons,
