There was no science fair....nor was she preparing for one.
She thought it was cool and was showing other kids how to do it.
She knew it was wrong and got smacked.
The charges will be dropped, but she will remember that rules and laws are there for a reason....they are to be followed or you suffer the punishment.
Something that most of you degenerates don't comprehend.
Oh, how nice, you insult anyone who disagrees with you. Congrats, you have the mentality of an 8 year old
Obviously you punish the kid. Suspend her from school a couple days, maybe call in the cops and talk about how serious this is. But you dont kick her out of school and have her arrested. Shes 16 and was showing her friends a cool science experiment, not trying to blow up the fuging school
Have you ever been around kids? They make mistakes, you cant freak the fug out if they make one mistake. This girl is not a problem child in that school, this girl is not the reason that rule was written in the first place. Hold her to these needlessly strict standards helps no one and only serves to ruin her life.
