I would hope that text records were pulled prior to arrest. Riel has a bad history of trying to "befriend" the students. He has landed himself in legal battles over trying to befriend his students in the past. He was actually countersued by a student, then Riel decided it was within his best interest to dismiss his law suit. Ironically, these 3 boys were never charged criminally. Now, if they had done something wrong, I feel confident that Riel would have taken out criminal charges on them. Just because you do not like a student is no reason to accuse them of wrong doing and attempt to financially gain from a law suit. This is news worthy because Riel is a BULLY, and when the students showed no fear of his "bullying"..... he attempted to sue them!
