Apparently, a 12 yr old was arrested for farting on purpose to disrupt the entire classroom, so the cops arrested him. What are your thoughts on this?
here's the video if you want to know more:

Really? All I can think of in reply is,
Beans, beans, they're good for your heart. The more you eat.. (well, you know the rest).
On a more serious note, some school districts are using the police in lieu of regular disciplinary tactics. Texas has been ticketing children as young as six: http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thelookou … as-schools
good grief. giving out tickets for misbehavior now? sheesh, whatever happened to the good old days when schools used to handle disciplining kids without law enforcement?
In those days, they had this lovely wooden thing called a "paddle." It was a rather simple, self-explanatory instrument that got the job done right the FIRST time.
Unfortunately, if one so much as showed up in a classroom these days, a student would yell "ABUSE! ABUSER!!!" and they would be immediately ruined forever and likely thrown in jail. T_T
I hope his parents will be able to help him retain a modicum of respect for school and law enforcement authorities.
This is what happens in liberal fascist settings like some schools have become though.
Well, in context of the video, the kid really wasn't arrested. He was taken home to his parents... Seeing that it's a recurring event, I'm sure that the law enforcement was used by the school district just to kind of scare the kid. Somewhat like the videos "scared straight." If this has been an issue that was addressed to the child and/or his parents, and I'm sure it was, then I see nothing wrong with it. The kid is choosing to do this voluntarily, if he had absolutely no control over his bowl movements it would probably be different.
hmm...i never thought of it like that. you may have a good point there, as they did say they just took the kid home, so the whole scared straight thing would make sense.
Seems to me the role of police in dealing with classroom issues should be confined to bomb threats, assaults with deadly weapons and the like. I never saw a cop on school property when I was a kid. The few issues were handled by teachers, the principal and parents. I was once sent to the pricipal's office for making a noise in the library by blowing into an empty Chicklets box when Miss Daniel wasn't looking. When she disappeared behind the stacks I did it again, but she was peering through the books and caught me red-handed. I was sent to the principa[s office. Fortunately, he wasn't there. I waited for a few minutes and left, unscathed. I doubt very seriously that Miss Daniels or the principal would have even considered calling the police if I had farted instead of making a noise.
Woman farts in pool.

For damn real? This planet is Looney Tunes? To be fair...if that's the case...they should have allowed him a hall pass to go outside and fart. If they did this to every kid that let one go...and adult??? Whoops...better not give the government any ideas...they could find a whole new way to generate loads of revenue off of fart tickets by the police. Maybe, the Police can sit outside each school with thermo-heat sensing graphs and go in and write tickets for the kids with heat dispensened from the bottom of their desk...to out in the classroom. I tell ya'...Looney Tunes doesn't give this particular incident proper credit...
you taught him well steven!!! that shows you how well the police is used, what a joke!
Well, yes, of course it makes sense for him to be arrested since we've achieved world peace and equality among humanity, and he obviously upset that quite a bit, did he not?
What's shocking is that his classmates didn't all join in and make it a farty party (otherwise known as a "riot" to schools and police). Then the cops could've tear-gassed the place, thus out doing farts and winning the battle.
It could just a natural impulse. Or, could be PUBLIC NUISANCE!!
Um, maybe the child has an intestinal problem and should be taken to the doctor! Of course the threat of a doctor visit can scare a kid, so if he stops on that account then he could be making a game of it. But if he can't stop, then get him to a doctor! It could be his diet and needs it revised!
Of course it could have been fear of the doctor that made him fart in the first place.
I think that is a reasonable possibility and it should be checked.
Though some schools have a community liaison officer, and he might have just been nearby at the time, I don't think the police should have been called. They should have ordered the national guard in.
I think calling in the national guard is a bit extreme as calling the police.
Kids who are going to disrupt will find another way if one doesn't work. If his diet was fixed where his body didn't produce enough gas to let him be able to do a thing like this, then why punish him if he does it and isn't his fault if he has an intestinal tract syndrome such has IBS or Chrones disease. If he's not been checked then it's kind of cruel to punish him for it. But he should be taught to ask to go out to the hall way or bathroom.
lucky for him he didn't do a boom boom in his pants...
I think that is a capital offense
As a regular curry eater over the years I have become a world expert on TST. TST or Trouser Seepage Time is dependent on a couple of things, what you have eaten and how thick your trousers are.
TST is measured in seconds and denotes the time it takes a fart to escape from your trousers and reach the nose. Boxer shorts have a low TST and heavy corduroy have a high TST which gives you enough time to retire and save any embarrassment.
If it were fair, my oldest son would be #1 on America's Most Wanted. About the time he hit fourteen, the CIA would have taken him out. On our trip to London, MI6 would have put out a kill order on him.
Seriously, in-school suspension - yes. Arrest him - no.
I would hope LEOs would have more important things to do with their time.
How about arresting a 12-year-old for attempted armed robbery with a loaded handgun?

o.o yes that nasty when my dog used to do that! Hate that when the cat does that as well and sits in your face! lol
As far as possible, kids shouldn't be exposed to the police in a negative setting. If the cops are called for every minor incident then kids will just get used to riding in the back seat of a cop car. By the time they're in their late teens, the cops will hold no fear for them at all and then where's the deterrent to more serious misbehaviour?
"farting on purpose to disrupt the entire classroom" DISRUPT is the key word here. The means are not important, his purpose was to disrupt the class. In my time he would have been promptly intruduced to the "board of education" which was the big wooden paddle the good sisters used to administer discipline.
Cops? Absolutely not. I personally probably wouldn't do anything. But if a teacher wanted to put him outside on timeout, I could see something like that happening.
Maybe there is something going on in this child's life that he feels he needs this kind of attention. Oh well, welcome to the real world where all your needs don't necessarily get met and you are expected to live by certain rules of conduct.
The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) is an arms control agreement which outlaws the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons. Its full name is the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction. The agreement is administered by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which is an independent organization based in The Hague, Netherlands.
The main obligation under the convention is the prohibition of use and production of chemical weapons, as well as the destruction of all chemical weapons. The destruction activities are verified by the OPCW. As of July 2010, circa 60% of the (declared) stockpile of chemical weapons has thus been destroyed. The convention also has provisions for systematic evaluation of chemical and military plants, as well as for investigations of allegations of use and production of chemical weapons based on intelligence of other state parties.
As of August 2010, 188 states are party to the CWC, and another two countries have signed but not yet ratified the conventio

What are your thoughts on the new Illinois law making it a felony to video an arrest?This law went into effect ahead of Chicago's G8 summit - where there tends to be a lot of protests. It also, in my opinion, is a threat to our constitution and freedom. Why should it be a felony to...

As my stomach turn listening to former NY Mayor, Guiliani blame the President and the current mayor for the deaths of the 2 officers in Bed-Sty, New York City, I had reason to pause. I think for myself and the insinuation that all the people involved in PEACEFUL protests were incited beyond reason...
