If I could mod this up, I would. This is the definition of why the electoral college was established, and why the United States is not a true democracy.
Something that I haven't seen commented on is the fact that the girl lied and didn't take responsibility for creating the MySpace page when first questioned about it.
That action there probably didn't help her avoid the suspension.
With the language used in the page, lying and avoidance of responsibility, no question that she should have been suspended.
What about the parents? Shouldn't they have backed up the penalties?
