    I seen on the news tonight that the child was charged, thats good--but I have two children in this school, every few days I hear stories about fights, drugs, and other foolish stuff---- I think that -that is a bigger deal than taking my sons cell phone when he is in the hall-- when he was not talking on it -- he only opened it to check the time. Maybe those teachers should watch for more important stuff---- kind of reminds me of when they were at Foley when they didn't wear a belt and had to call me at work--WE NEED TO WORRY ABOUT WHATS IMPORTANT!!!!
