    OMG, a "lynch list"?

    They've crossed a line. Counter protest? Classless but fine. Threatening lynching (physical violence) against a fellow classmate? Crosses a line.

    I might even consider civil legal action if my child's name were on that list. Hit the bigots where it hurts: in their pocket book. I'd wager to bet most people in McGuffey middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania are judgment proof, but it'd at least cost them attorney's fees, and you could attempt to garnish their paychecks.

    You do NOT threaten somebody's physical safety. That is not a form of protest.

    I wonder if the school has an LGBT group that we could all support somehow?

    This must be a rural high school in the remote mountains of central Pennsylvania where hate and ignorance is still unfortunately the norm, disgusting icon_mad.gif

    I stand corrected, Claysville is a rural, redneck dinky dink on both US 40 and I-70 between the West Virginia state line and Washington, Pennsylvania. Regardless of location, this anti-gay event is highly repugnant and there should be corrective disciplinary action against the students who started this stupid shiticon_mad.gif

    Is this also one of those schools where the parents groups are "pro-bullying?"

    Hands up, Don't Shoot Liberals.

    How come no one can find the alleged lynch list?

    Someone has NEVER been in a court case. Do you realize how difficult it is to obtain physical evidence? It literally takes a discovery request or court order, and even then you're not likely to obtain it. "We're unable to locate the item in question."

    They (the bigots) have ever reason to NOT disclose or otherwise provide the lynch list. Why in the F would a person turn over a document that damns them? Are you remedial?

    I have to ask this.
    You make common cause with every anti-gay person or group out there.
    You consistently tell us all how much you despise gays.
    So, really, what the fuck are you doing here?

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, if they are so anti gay, then why are they hugging all over each other and why are some on their knees in front of their buds? perhaps they are running away from their true feelings for each other....... these manboys should be stripped down, tied up, and edged mercilessly for hours. that's what they really want.

    I don't know about him, but you most certainly are remedial. If you are accusing somebody of a crime, it is incumbent upon the accuser to produce the evidence. Another thing about court cases in the U.S., you are innocent until proven guilty. And it is because of people like you who have their own hatred (however justified you may think it is, or whatever name you decide to call it) who will condemn without evidence, that we have presumption of innocence in the first place. You are the one who is considering using legal proceedings against a group of idiot teenagers. You see something you hate just as much, and you want to respond to them by ruining their lives.

    You want to make this kids out to be evil incarnate...that's fine. But the truth is they are most likely just some immature teenagers doing something stupid. The huffington post most certainly sees the former as reality. But there will now be blowback against them.

    And frankly I don't know if they deserve it. Maybe they are bigots, maybe they aren't. consider the source of the reporting. There is obviously an axe to grind. reading an article by huffpomabiut this tiny corner of PA (which I have been to and is nowhere near as bad as they make it out to be), is like reading an article on P-Town in the Tehran Times.

    Ruin their lives? No ones ruined their lives but themselves. The internet is forever. How do those yahoos expect to get into a good votech school now?

    Flannel? Really? I guess they couldn't afford Armani suits. Or do they just have an ax to grind with lesbians?

    If you think you need a smoking gun (i.e., the lynch list) to win a case, criminal or civil, then you don't know what you're talking about.

    Sworn testimony IS evidence and satisfies the plaintiff or state's burden of production and can satisfy their burden of persuasion (depending on what the jury finds).

    I get it, you're covering for the bigots. Who, by the way, didn't have a "straight pride" day, but had an affirmatively ANTI-gay day. A distinction with a meaning. I'm not going to have a conversation about the deterrent effect legal proceeings can have with a person who is blanket-defending known bigots by admission and doesn't understand that testimony of seeing the list (e.g., when the kid said he SAW a list) is direct evidence.

    You'd be the perfect dude to edge them as they beg to have you blow them. Who you want to do first? I'll tie him up for you. lol

    Make them all do what the admin did in another school. Each of those boys would have to hold hands with a gay student all day. In the school where it was done, a lesson was learned.

    MIL, where was that? I'm sure that wouldn't have flown here in the highly litigious US. Someone would have surely been sued.

    Really incredible, this isn't 1990. I'm surprised the superintendent wasn't more concerned. I would think this would be front page news with this kind of bullshit.

    If they were adults, I would have been more angry but teenagers' judgement is impaired. Will these be the anti-gay members of tomorrow?

    Between the corn (overly) fed bellies, bowl haircuts, and buck teeth, I don't know where to start reading. The library is open.

    Apparently plaid has become the new anti-gay statement.
