Calling the Highlands baseball team "Dirty Birds" is a GROSS understatement

    No doubt, this is a runaway train and the leaders over at HHS might wanna re-think the "no comment" stance they have taken so far.

    If they delete their tweets is that destruction of evidence?

    What are they to comment on? The conduct by the minors that lead to the suspension? The punishment levied on the minors? Or, the complaint made by the other minor?

    And have any of the baseball coaches or players encouraged or insisted that the victim rejoins the team? If slinging urine warrants a mere 5 game suspension how difficult is it to let by gones be by gones and start a new chapter post "urine trouble?"
    Very good point. When I was a young teenager, I was unnecessarily mean to someone who didn't deserve it. By today's standards it would be nothing. Her mom called my mom and my mom yelled at me and marched me up to that girl's house for a face to face apology. We need more of that today.

    So the extreme of dipping the toe in urine means "off the team" in your book?

    Sad thing is that you have to now take into consideration that if you apologize , especially in something like this, are you admitting guilt and giving ammo for a lawsuit? Sad but has to be considered.

    Interesting legal question, I don't really know. But there is one thing I do know, deleting video or pictures of the urine incident like this may very well be a crime.

    Don't name the names, don't even have to give the dirty details... But this is going viral, so they should say... "This is our policy and here is how we handled it"... Furthermore, they should state that any HHS student that further adds "bullying" or "harassment" to this situation will be dealt with immediately according to their guidelines... And if it doesn't include social media bullying they should say that it does include it now...
    HHS has to get out infront of this thing... Although it's possibly already too late.

    Based on what I have been reading from some of the most active people on this thread, in my opinion, the younger generation of boys are emulating some of the older generation. Adults on this thread are bullied and harassed for having a different opinion. Its comical and sad at the same time.

    I know where you are going, but you can't use that apology in a trial.

    The things being said by current and former HHS students and student-athletes is so concerning. Even kids from other schools have chimed in a bit. If I were their parents I'd be livid. They look like entitled, spoiled, and disrespectful know it all brats. If you don't hammer in the seriousness of this or use it as an example for your child, then you're part of the problem. I'm so tired of adults that make excuses for their entitled teenagers and young adults poor behavior. Make them realize consequences!

    You to huh...I can relate. Amazing concept of what can take place when a "teaching moment" like that occurs. Folks become more conscientious and have greater respect for the consequences of their actions!
