A Norwalk High School (NHS) student faces 88 days of suspended detention time for attacking a 14-year-old girl over things written about her on Facebook.

The 16-year-old defendant has been ordered to report to the Erie County Juvenile Justice Center by 4 p.m. Friday to serve two days in detention. She was charged with assault, a first-degree misdemeanor if committed by an adult, for the Nov. 11 incident in the crowded, front NHS hallway.

Huron County Juvenile Court Administrator Chris Mushett said the defendant hadn't been in detention since the altercation, which was witnessed by multiple students who were walking through the halls at the time. "She'd been at home," Mushett said.

it seems to be another article that is difficult to understand... when you say "suspended detention time" do you mean that she is suspended from schools as her detention??? or do you mean that she is supposed to be in detention for 88 days, but it is "suspended"??? either way, Judge.. it is not nearly enough "detention" .... if you could get an honest answer from this "school thug" and if you asked her if she learned her lesson, and will never do it again, and seek the revenge that she wanted by her "suspended detention" if she were honest, she would tell you that she would do it again in a heartbeat!!!so now "we" have given her a free pass to torture and terrorize anyone she likes, because she knows that the "punishment" is way worth doing what you want.....isn't "punishment" supposed to be so "awful" that you learn a lesson?? isn't it supposed to act as a deterrent??? I hardly think that happened here.. so it will be happening more often now, ...and we can thank you "judge" for your tough stance on crime... just like you promised when you ran for office!!!!!

She should have gotten more than the weekend in the DH. I agree with you Swiss on this one!

You can bet that if this happened to my daughter, I'd be demanding more than 2 days in a detention home for little Miss 14 yr. old. And no matter how many days she was suspended from school, it's still not a severe enough punishment.

myownopinion

Back when I was in high school, we got into fights and got suspended from school. that was it. The girl was in the wrong, they both were. But that is a teenager, when will the parents learn to teach their kids that there is a reaction to every action to what they do. I'm not in any way promoting what happened, but she should have known the girl would get pissed and do something about it. And yes I do have kids, would I or do I allow that? NO I as their parent monitor what goes on their facebooks or any other social networking site, cell phones and who they hang out with.

swiss family

to "myown" you are correct.. for every action there is a "response" or maybe as you say a reaction... but you make it seem as if violence and revenge are the only viable solutions?? they are not.... I would suggest that you learn more about Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Ghandi, or Mother Theresa.. they also reacted to a stimulus... but not in a violent manner (which by the way, violence is the easiest response, but not the correct response)... and if these teens were taught that those reactions are far better, and more meaningful and fulfilling, perhaps they would be more likely to choose to react the correct way...

also to anyone who says that "if this had happened to my kid, niece, nephew, neighbor etc" you are missing a large point here... because the judge gave such a small, laughable sentence, and I would doubt that the sentence had any affect on this girl or any other teenage faced with similar pressures, the judge has pretty much told them . that if they do this.. they will get the severe punishment of 2 days in the DH... so that probably increases the chances that it will happen to your loved one 1000 fold... so why wait to be outraged then... I suggest y that you get outraged now, and stop it before it becomes too commonplace here!

myownopinion

I didn't say that they need to resort to violence. But that what parents should teach their kids. That some parents also need to monitor their children a little better. Know what they are doing, who they are with that sort of thing. Because we all know they are kids.
Mine know very well "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all!" That's what I was taught growing up. No matter if you like the person or not! I didn't get into fights in school, nor do my kids. I have tried very hard to teach them proper ways of dealing with things. My oldest is 15 with my youngest being 5. So I deal with all the diff. levels that children have to offer. But alot and I mean alot of parents don't!

What's really unfortunate is that this whole ordeal could have likely been avoided if both sets of parents in the situation had been more involved with their children. Parents have a responsibility to teach their children how to react appropriately in any given situation. This includes how to appropriately use social networking websites. In order to make sure a child is using these websites appropriately, a parent must view what they post regularly. The human brain continues to develop well into the mid 20's, and thus children and teens (this includes young adults)require the guidance of their parents. The notion of privacy where a teenager is concerned is a false one.
If a parent had known what was being said, the parents could first address the issue with the teens, and then address the issue between the adults if the situation hadn't been rectified.

U get what u give

This is too funny cuz all of u talkin about u monitor your kids is so full of it because NO parent knows everything that goes on with their kids and if u say u do ur lyin period! All kids make mistakes and in this case they both did!Swiss is right with the whole judge thing for sure but and u know she would do it agian!.........sad part this girl is gettin all kinds if things said to her people being bullies cuz their friend decided to catch some girl from behind in front of the office knowing they had cameras! Me i would have takin my daughter out of school but her mom didn't her choice i wouldn't let my daughter deal with that reguardless of what she said on "facebook"!! This girl thought she was hard and cool by doing what she did and she talked mess all day about how she was going to beat this girl up and u know how kids are they hype things up and now shes got to pay for doing what she did! People crack me up by saying oh my kid knows better or i know what's going on please watch some reality t.v. sometime!Me i talk to all my kids friends ect... sometimes they come to me instead of their parents and i still sometimes don't know everything and i try to be in all the drama that goes on so i can give them my point of view!It is what you learn from your mistakes i tell them that ALL OF THE TIME!Now she knows don't talk about people and the other girl knows not to put her hands on peeople!What kid don't know u fight in school u get in trouble?It is what they learn so only time will tell! Some parents need to keep it real and not say what makes you feel better or sounds good to make youself look good! It is them type of parents whos kids either end up pregnant or in jail i see it all the time oh i know whats goin on ect!No matter what you do or no matter how hard you try kids don't tell you everything that goes on so stop foolin yourself just sayin!Have a good day folks!

Most Wanted

Please tell me you are not really a parent! If you are, I am starting to get it and it isn't pretty.

daylynn

I've taught my child to take up for himself, and that is what he does...do not let people walk on you or your life will be crap!

skyemommy

I know I'm horribly off base here, but I just realized at the end of the video the girl that got pulled to the ground by her hair walks off toward the HS office, and as she does she reaches up and UNCLIPS her long hair!!! Totally random, I know. But I couldn't resist sharing :)

bigwinner

Really she could grow up to be the mayor of this town someday,
Just what Norwalk needs a Big Bully???
Just say'in it could happen it wouldn't be a first.
;)
This is going to be a really great year.

Its pretty typical for this to happen in school just be glad she handled it with her fists considering what we've seen happen at other schools for kids teasing and taunting others. Most people learn the hard way. Kids will be kids.

I too, just love all you good righteous people with perfect little play by the book kids. My parents were great and yes understanding, i received punishments at home. but by comment standards they were terrible. I got suspended in or out of school around 3-4 times thru life. It happens, kids blowup or tensions high or yes maybe a little macho stuff. When did it become a law thing? and yes people one suspension was the year on student council, so not a bad kid by 70-80's standard. i would just hate to be a teen now. Prison for a little school fight? sexual offender for convincing a freshman i was her only true love? just to be with her best friend the next week? but honest i loved them all!.....at the time. Everywhere you turn they are getting people to be good little socialist. It's always someone else's fault society.

talksmack

Honestly, if the 16 yr old got in trouble i believe the 14 yr old should have also. She was just just as much involved. The 14 yr old is acting like she did nothing but the things she said makes her just as guilty as the 16 yr old. People fight everyday and everyone is saying that it's their parents fault but that's not the whole reason. I was raised well but if some girl got in my face and said things that weren't true believe you me i wouldnt let her hold her head up high. At this age boyfriends mean everything to girls and I'm sure even people commenting on this have had problems with other girls taking their boyfriends and so on when they were younger. It happens everyday and I'm glad the girl stuck up for herself.

thaturtleking

lmao @ how she pulls her extensions out as shes walking to the office!! thats funny they didnt come out wen yanked from behind AHHHAHAHAH

sweetmarie1980

Kick them both out for the rest of the year and do commtiy seirv togather,Im not saying shake hands and make up,There is so much hate today in these kids now days.
