So-called education bloggers (other than Fitz and Hombre Blanco) are up in arms about a recent incident in which administrators at a Columbus, Ohio high school attempted to cover up an alleged sexual assault by two young fellows of a young retarded girl.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two students were charged today with sexually assaulting a mentally disabled girl in a high school auditorium. The former principal was charged with failing to notify police.
The case generated criticism because school officials did not immediately report the allegations to police and said they feared negative media attention if they did.
The 16-year-old girl told a teacher at Mifflin High School that she had been dragged into the auditorium March 9 and forced to perform oral sex on at least two boys as other students watched and one boy videotaped, according to investigators.
Two boys, Brandyn Hobbs, 15, and Timothy C. Armistead, 16, were charged with juvenile counts of sexual battery and kidnapping.
Regina Crenshaw, who was removed as principal because of the incident, was charged with failing to call police. If convicted, she could get anything from probation to 30 days in jail.
First of all, I'd like you to all notice how selective the mainstream media is in applying its little euphemisms. The retarded girl gets to be called "mentally disabled," but the two young fellows are charged with sexual assault, not "wisely traveling the path of least resistance."
Also, you have to wonder what the fact that this broad is "mentally disabled" really has to do with the story in the first place? Would it have been any less of a "sexual assault" if the individual in question had been reasonably intelligent (for a girl)? Or did the journalistic activist that wrote this only include that fact to make these two young fellows look bad.
Now, it's my opinion that retarded people, like pregnant women, shouldn't be allowed to attend regular schools in the first place. I mean, if their parents feel like they need to drop 30K a year so that they can go somewhere for 8 hours a day and attract flies, then fine. But I really can't see anybody mounting a successful argument as to why we should be wasting any of our taxpayer's dollars to try to educate people who, by definition, can't be educated. Seriously, it's not like we'd be losing a cancer cure by locking them all in a room somewhere.
I'm not saying that these young fellows definitely should have done what they've been alleged to have done, but I guess what I'm saying is that I can certainly sympathize with the kind of guys who would have a tough time getting any action from the kind of woman that would know any better. And it was really the PC "Let's educate everybody!" crowd that put them in this unfortunate position in the first place.
I really do feel bad for everybody involved, but I think the best course of action at this juncture might just be to give the girl some kind of nominal position working in the school's library and pretend like this never happened.
