    Same thing has been started at my school this year for juniors and younger in my school.


    The 'give students laptops' thing, not the 'spying on students' thing. At least, I hope not.

    Wow. I'd be ready to throw fists if that happened to me. That's really bothersome.

    What the fuck? What sick pedophile thought of this? I'd sue the school for every cent they have.

    Yeah, that makes sense. Give teenagers laptops to take home. Don't think for a second that one of them might use it for jacking off. *sarcasm*

    Kinda sounds like the principal might've been BSing them. In my experience, teachers generally aren't very good with computers.

    My thoughts exactly. None of my teachers can work a computer properly... then again the computers in my school suck. How can I fix the issue I'm having with them if I can't even access "My documents"? They put this stupid firewall block that doesn't let you access anything but the essentials like Internet explorer or microsoft office applications. Not to mention the damn firewall that doesn't let you go on any site. During my spare time I go on Failblog.org with my friends. Nope, they blocked that now. Bastards :banghead:

    Oh man...please let there have been inadvertent child porn, oh please. The karma tsunami would be epic.

    But really, this beggars belief. At what point did anyone at that school imagine, for an instant, that this wouldn't come back to bite them in the ass? I mean all one parent has to do is vaguely say something about "These pedophiles were filming our children in their bedrooms! I'll bet they were getting their jollies watching them undress." and someone could actually face some jailtime for this.

    Not to mention the incredible negative press.

    So, anyone remember that thread awhile ago about school authoritarianism? Ah, here it is: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/general-discussion/278321-high-school-suspends-students-after-banning-word-meep.html

    And here's the slippery slope that sort of thinking has led to.

    Oh look, from the school website:

    But that obviously cannot be true since they disciplined a student for something he did at home.

    Man, the court proceedings will be quite funny.

    I can't even fathom how stupid this idea was to watch kids at home. And the fact that a kid got in trouble by the school probably because he was touching himself.

    The court proceedings will be quite funny indeed.
    "We were planning on Disciplining this student for we have intentionally filmed him (without him knowing) masturbating on these new laptops we issued out to a number of students in our school."
    Christ, and I thought my school was stupid.

    There are people on this Earth who should have died already for such stupidity.

    Oh goody! Here's the filing already: http://craphound.com/robbins17.pdf

    Uh-oh, page 2 says that PA has some sort of wiretapping law on the books already. Yeah, this is basically impossible to defend against. Page 6 notes that nobody received any documentation stating the school was capable of remotely turning on the webcam.

    Page 14, Item 66! There's the pedo-porn allegation!

    So hosed. So very, very hosed.

    Damn the lawyers must have been lined up around the block to try to get this case. Serious wtf were they thinking XD. The zero tolerance taken too far crap is bad enough but this is even worse. The school is so screwed and heads will roll.
