Teen Expelled Over Profane Tweet
March 28, 2012 by staff
Teen Expelled Over Profane Tweet, An Indiana high school expels a student for a silly, profane tweet, even though it seems to have been sent at 2:30 a.m. The school suggests that it may track all of its students’ tweets, regardless of what time or where they were sent. I am sure that the people who run Garrett High School in Indiana radiate intelligence.
Perhaps, though, they have tossed a little inkblot onto their pristine record with the expulsion of senior Austin Carroll. He didn’t assault anyone. He didn’t toss a projectile, nor brandish a knife. No, it seems that he merely tweeted.
Please prepare your best judgmental pose while I transcribe (mostly) his supposedly most offensive tweet: “F*** is one of those F****** words you can F****** put anywhere in a F****** sentence and it still F****** makes sense.”
There, how did that feel? Juvenile? To some, perhaps. Amusing? Mostly to his peers, surely. But offensive? Offensive enough to get him thrown out of school, with a mere three months of his time there left to serve? With this, some might struggle.
You might wonder whether he sent this tweet during school hours. Perhaps he had been moved by a reading of Hunter S. Thompson. Well, in an interview with Indiana News Center he said that he had tweeted from home.
