Why do (esp. underprivileged?)) students even think a "10 days suspension " is appropriate!? This incident has no intent or malice, and no harm. Why are so many of the staff that serve her in that school, called Officers!? We don't need to back up a little, we need to back up a lot!
I have a problem with all of the links under the article being about racism. Why is it that every time something bad happens to a black person it's all about race? Why aren't the same links under articles about the 17 year old blonde girl that got kicked out of school for intending to drive a drunk girl home after a private party?
