Have you considered that handling this as a civil suit, rather than as a criminal case, was likely the most humane way to hold these students accountable and to invoke a response from their parents? A civil suit would not hurt them on a college or job application, as would a conviction for harrassment. I suspect the forks in the yard were not the primary issue and there is more than one side to the story, even though we are lead to believe otherwise. I know Mark Riel and have seen the good that he has done. Please don't jump to conclusions based on accusations and inflammatory comments.
