You two ought to wait until the facts are known before you pass judgment. You have heard of innocent until proven guilty haven't you?

Seeing the gang signs posted on the victims FB pages, I doubt the victims were 100% innocent in what occurred. No one deserves to lose their lives or be shot and the shooter should definitely be prosecuted, but I have a feeling there is more to this story than just an angry man that decided to shoot to kill two people. I don't know the story and neither do most of the people in this judgmental…

thanks for the link. So often though, descriptions of studies lean toward their preferred outcome. 40% is very low correlation, and he even concludes "environmental" factors have much greater influence. He tries to separate that from social factors, but indeed social factors are a big part of it. Interesting they found no genetic link at all in women. I think the early childhood is big, which…

In a truly free society morality is only enforced by the state when there is a victim. Prostitution, gambling, and smoking weed have no victims, hence no crime. Murder, theft and statutory rape have victims, this is why they are crimes.

Quincy High School suspends 50 seniors following prank

1 year, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

Students are out of school until Tuesday and not allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities

On the heels of senior prank that has nearly 40 Highland (Mo.) High School students being held out of graduation, some Quincy High School students decided to pull a stunt themselves.

"There was a student prank at 9 a.m. this morning involving approximately 50 students," said QHS Principal Danielle Edgar. "We are addressing this with student disciplinary consequences."

There are approximately 455 seniors in this year's QHS graduating class.

The students involved were dismissed from school at midday and are suspended until Tuesday. 

"When a student is out-of-school suspended, he/she is excluded from extra-curriculars for the length of the suspension," Edgar said in a follow-up response to a question from Quincy Journal. 

Edgar did not elaborate on what the students did. One parent of a suspended student described it as "Students left their classrooms and ran hallways with Silly String," the parent said in a text message to Quincy Journal. "Some left the building then came back...chaos and disturbance." 

Weekend activities some seniors could miss if they were involved include QHS baseball games on Friday and Saturday, QHS softball games on Friday and Monday, the District Track meet and the Choir and Jazz Band Pops Concert on Sunday,
