    school staff should be charged with tampering with evidence & the kid should be let go for lack of evidence as it was destroyed , & the judge/cops should be tarred & feathered.

    There is an expectation of privacy in a public school classroom?

    I wouldn't think so, but apparently. Or it could just be a cop being stupid.

    No, that never happens.

    Seriously though, how much of a failure do you have to be as a parent if your little sh** child is bullying other kids, especially disabled kids?

    Yes, Pennsylvania is one of the twelve states that require all parties to a conversation to be aware of the recording. (CA, CT, DE, FL, IL, MD, MA, MI, MT, NH, PA and WA) It is unfortunate but it is the law. Maybe Ms. Love will work to get that law changed as it is in the other 38 states so that only one person on the recording needs to be aware of it.

    Yep, and I hope the school district gets skinned alive in the civil suit. Maybe it'll shock them into having a stronger anti-bullying policies. By stronger I mean one where you don't punish the victim.

    Yes, this will be going on for a while. Have the bullies sought to have a federal case brought for the civil right violation? After all, their privacy was invaded.

    Not being able to record in the classroom and the guy getting bullied ends up being the victim twice. First by the kids then by the administration. Poor guy.

    And this is a classroom where recording should be encouraged. So if a student decides he wants to record the lecture, but didn't notify the teacher or other kids who might get caught on tape as they blurt out, etc. then the student pays the price.

    Things have just gotten so backwards.

    Reminds me of the kid that got sent home with a cross on his shirt, but the hand flipping the bird on shirt was acceptable.

    What is next. Someone running a red light and hitting someone in a crosswalk and the person who got hit gets in trouble for being in the way.

    Odd-world!

    In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania it is illegal to record anyone without everyone who will be on the order giving consent. 12 states have this law.

    I should probably reconsider my opinion then! :D:p

    ----------

    What a horrible law. Glad my state isn't one of those states.

    If local news sources are an indication, some representives are already proposing a new bill that will allow for recording in situations like this.

    As far as this young man goes, aprantly the local Country DA had all charges dropped, and the conviction for disorderly conduct revoked and removed.

    This is why you post on the internet first, then call authorities. Public opinion is a great weapon when every one hears or sees the truth.

    Yep. Should have youtubed it right away.

    And for the bullies...picking on a disabled kid...Yeah, I'd clear a wing of all security and let the biggest bulls in the yard have some one on one time for 24hrs. Show them what's it's like to be powerless and humiliated.

    My parents always said I was free to defend myself with whatever means necessary, but if I were caught bullying the belt would be waiting for me after school.
