Food Fight Suspects In Court

Some teens involved in a school food fight that got them arrested appeared in court Wednesday morning.

The six teens pleaded not guilty on disorderly conduct charges.

Officials at South Laurel High School say the students started a food fight that injured a teacher. The student body president and class valedictorian were among the students arrested,

The six seniors didn't participate in last week's graduation, but they did still receive their diplomas.

    Maybe we should just forget about the food fight and all move to whatever location it is that John Belushi lives in. Seems to me it is the only spot on earth where no crimes or crazy situations ever occur.

    Yeah I think they got what was coming to each one of them. I also think the 6 students and their parents should have cleaned the mess in the lunchroom. I guess the students might have just learned a valuable lesson, let's just hope the parents did too. The parents of these students did not do such a good job teaching the lesson at home. Who you are does not mean you are above the law!!!!

    Doug, it is not the job of our educators to teach our children morals. Morals should be taught at home at an early age. Children aren't the problem - it's the parents.

    There was an article in the local paper that had a picture of the people involved in the food fight that was taken with a cell phone camera. I was under the impression that cell phones were not allowed to be at school?? So did any of these students get any punishment? Also, are you just allowed to take pictures of people and put them in the paper without permission of the person or persons involved?

    I depended on the school system to enforce the morals taught at home. I think a lot of what is going wrong right now is due to lack of accountability for actions, or lack of consequences for actions. The bottom line is respect for authority and these kids had none.

    When I attended South Laurel there was no "tradition" of a food fight. Where this came from is a mystery to me. class of 1999-NO FOOD FIGHT!! So this was a tradition? The school rule then was you miss graduation practice you don't get to walk the line. Nothing has changed these students made a big mistake after knowing the consequences

    We send our children to school to not only learn Math, Reading and such, but we also depend on the educational system to teach morals. If the administration of South Laurel High School had let this slip by without making a statement, then upcoming senior classes would have felt it was ok to do the same thing. Students must learn that rules are rules....later...laws are laws.

    If graduation was important to them they should have not behaved the way they did. If you let one time go just so they can graduate what would follow next year for a few students to try next. They got what they ask for act like preschoolers get treated like preschoolers I say.

    FOOD FIGHT!!!!! I got paid big buck in Animal House for starting a food fight. Seriously speaking though, I find it very interesting that most of the stories involving crazy situations have happened in Laurel County. Wal-Mart stabbing, Food Fight, Stolen Party Balloon fight, etc. I'm just so happy I don't live in or near Laurel County.
