    It should be noted, he also turned other students computers off. He was hauled out for being disrupted, not for just having gas. :rolleyes:

    While I must say this may be a little to far, maybe a suspension would been enough. But from just reading the quote, they can arrest him for what he did and it is a disruption in another's education. Therefor in a way, he deserves what he gets.

    If I was one of the classmates, I would say that he should get the death penalty. Anyone who breaks wind before me deserves to die.

    Seriously, I think that he should have just been suspended. There's no need to get the police involved in something as small as this.

    Whilst the outcome was a little extreme, yes he was being disrupted and should have been removed from the classroom.

    That's a stupid and misleading headline. The student was arrested for being disruptive, not specifically for farting.

    Whether that was an appropriate response to his actions is yet another discussion...

    If he would have set up a fan in the direction of the other students they could have gotten him on malicious intent.:D

    I've voted him "Most Likely to Die (or suffer major burns) in a Blue Flame Club Accident."

    If I could be arrested for farting, I would be serving multiple life sentences :eek: :D

    He was not just farting, he was turning off the computers, and who knows what else. He was being a disruption to the class. While I don't agree, he should have been arrested. But damn well deserved a suspension. But he did break a law and could/have been arrested.

    how does any of that warrant arrest?

    are schools that powerless now that they cant even hand out a detention?

    Like I said, I don't think he should been arrested.

    But disruption of a class room is illegal.

    If that's true, then 60% of my senior class would be receiving the death penalty right now. :rolleyes:

    illegal? oh please. farting isn't against the law. now if he walked up to his teacher, took his/her bag and proceeded to **** in it, then it would be a different story. this is just like that little black girl who got handcuffed by the police because they didn't know how to deal with a kid.

    dude, thats at a university, not a bunch of kids. If you get arrested there its a disturbing the piece kinda charge (aka, there annoyed by you so they slap a bogus charge on you). KIDS in grade/highschool getting arrested? no, thats where suspention/detentions come in.

    Yep, Florida sucks... Got like a day or two suspension... I think we where throwing paper balls and what not when the teacher was not looking. Oh and good old paper football! Some one else had a laser, also. Interesting day, but it goes on in allot of classrooms... Teacher just flipped, she was a new/young teacher... She quite like half way through the school year.

    People killing each other in the streets, yet we have to grab the "farters" of the world. Oh well, I'd be pissed if the lil booger farted around me too.:mad:
