Young girls groped on bus
The Washington Times ^ | 5-31-05 | Jon Ward

Posted on 05/31/2005 11:21:11 AM PDT by JZelle

Authorities in Frederick County, Md., have begun investigating a report of repeated incidents in which eighth-grade boys fondled and taunted first-grade girls on a public school bus last fall. The mother of one first-grade girl said she first learned of the fondling accusations this month and is criticizing school officials for not alerting her. Detective Willie Ollie of the Frederick County Sheriff's Department said he has opened an investigation into the case.

Agreed, it's obviously Society's fault and not the 8th grade boys' fault.

If my 8th grade boy behaved that way, he'd get smacked upside the head, but good.

Lucky for him he doesn't exist.

If Fredrick county's "sex ed" program was anything like the one that just got tossed in Montgomery county I could give a good guess.

Come to think of it, do first-grade girls even have anything to grope? Maybe all those additives in our food really are making girls 'mature' faster. hmmm....

Look to the culture. These boys are being bombarded with sex talk, images, etc...so not having the maturity to control themselves, they go after the weak. Morality being only in the eye of the beholder and the schools being too busy instructing the kids to respect all sexual orientations, no one bothers with teaching them how to distinguish between true right and wrong. And typical of human nature at its worst, they try to hide this disaster after the fact.

God help the children of this generation. They've got fools in charge of them.

It's both society's fault and the boy's fault. You don't get 12 and 13-year-old boys behaving this way without a little help from society. That doesn't make them less guilty, but it doesn't let everyone else off the hook either.

More snips from the article.

She found out about the fondling this month while talking to the bus driver.

Mrs. Sechler said bus driver Bob Baxley told her in January that two eighth-grade boys had been disciplined for talking sexually to her daughter and two other girls since early last fall.

One boy was removed from West Frederick Middle School and the other was suspended for three days, she said.

Mrs. Sechler said she learned from Mr. Baxley on May 11 that the boys had been "inappropriately touching" her daughter.

"He couldn't believe [school system officials] had not told me," Mrs. Sechler said. "They never told me about the touching. I found out by accident."

Mine does. And if he did this, it would take a great deal of self control to keep from injuring him. But I would beat him, you can be sure of that.

I remember in second grade a boy would do this to us girls. He would pull down his pants and show his, ahem, private parts. He would come up behind us and grind his crotch into our butt. This was second grade and it was over twenty years ago...

When will the rest of the country catch up to what's happening here in Massachusetts. We're way past groping now. A student was raped on the bus on her way home just this past Friday.

Take the 8th grade boys out behind the shed and give them 5 whacks on the butt with a 5' piece of bamboo and it won't happen again. I'm available to do the whacking.

Families aren't as large anymore. The chances of running afoul of an older brother have diminished.

It doesn't help kids to see slutty teachers released from prison, for getting their groove back with twelve year olds, only to become one of the greatest love stories of mankind.

"Mine does. And if he did this, it would take a great deal of self control to keep from injuring him. But I would beat him, you can be sure of that."

I said on another thread that hitting should be the last option in a parent's arsenal and saved for the worst of transgressions. This is a perfect example of one.

Dont know how slutty she was...just mentally ill.

The Public education system is dumping ground for the academicly challenged and mentally ill (as far as teachers go.) Don't get me wrong...there are many good teachers, but at the same token those many when compared to the whole...are too few.

"I said on another thread that hitting should be the last option in a parent's arsenal and saved for the worst of transgressions. This is a perfect example of one."

It's a strange thing. Hitting is essential, yet should be used rarely. It takes common sense in the application, and that's why liberals oppose it so much, they lack sense.

Babies - never, ever spanked.
Young child - Around 1 to 5 years old, should be spanked for safety, (don't run in the street). And for impasses, (when they try to see who is boss).
Kids - 6 to 11 or 12, should be spanked only on severe infractions. Generally these kids if spanked earlier won't require spanking. Reasoning with them actually works!
Young adults - 13 and up, almost never should be struck. A case like this story about fondling is one of the rare cases where I'd apply force, and lots of it.

Just my view on this topic. :)

BTW, I'm in favor of corporal punishment at school too. (It worked for me).

School buses, in my opinion, should have adult supervision onboard.

What responsible parents would allow their elementary age children to spend 30 minutes or so at a neighbor's house, where there were as many as 20 other children -- AND NO ADULTS? No many! But how many parents allow their children to ride school buses?

A school bus is the same as a sitting room, on wheels, with no adults to keep an eye on the safety and welfare of the children. Oh, yes, there's a driver, but the driver cannot possibly supervise the children.

Parents should insist that school buses be supervised.
