LHS, Facebook

August 17, 2012


To the editor:

Monday morning, while drinking my first great cup of coffee, I got a bitter taste in my mouth when I suddenly read from one of my Facebook friends that someone has posted a Facebook page called Lawrence HS Halls. It is an LHS gossip column. On the Lawrence HS Halls Facebook cover page it is quoted to say, “Loving is Hard, Hating Is Easy.”

I have a child in middle school this year that is planning to attend LHS next year. It is disturbing that a FB page like this is used to attract this cyber negativity and the anticipated children and families that will be hurt in the process. Please, advise children not to friend this page.

I could not find Lawrence HS Halls on Facebook this morning. Maybe it was taken down.

I just now went on FB and found it. To the parent or parents of the kid or kids who are responsible for this page: Please remove it. It encourages negativity and bullying...and I am convinced that at some point, someone very vulnerable will be targeted through this medium. I cannot believe that this actually exists...perhaps I live in a bubble, but I am so proud to say of my own son that he would NEVER do something like this or participate in it. He is working to hard in school and standing up for the rights of LGBTQ folk, as well as other marginalized individuals. sigh

Additionally, the logo for LHS is on the page, which implies endorsement by the school, even if they do NOT support this. Might want to look into it, parents...

USD 497 should look into this. Parents can sue other parents over this trash if minors are involved. The parents can be held liable for their child's crimes; civil court might also help.

I found it by taking the "halls" off and searching for Lawrence HS on facebook. When you do the "hall" part pops back up. LHS needs to take this sight down now. It looks like an official site when you first open it.

** Before you look for it Be Warned**

The serial killer in training kid who goes by Adolf Thry Black* who is posting the pics is one sick puppy who should be deep deep in therapy.

This is NOT a harmless fun site.

Liberal, the original "there's nothing there" comment - which you could obviously see was changed - was referring to the actual Lawrence HS Halls FB page, not Adolph's page. Sorry for the confusion, and sorry to ruin your painting of me as being "Kids will be kids".

If they are using the school's name or any copyrighted images, they can work on the problem. This could be a learning experience for all concerned. If the kid quoted above is serious, his parents need to intervene.

I checked the phone book and there was not a Bla%*#&@k family listed. Does anyone know where they might live?

If it causes trouble in school, they can complain to FB. THey can also discipline kids for off campus behaviors if they splash back into the halls of LHS.

If there are threats notify the police.

Have parents reported the page to Facebook? LPD? At the very least, it needs to be monitored. I have not personally read it, but from what other posters have quoted from it, it is a HUGE red flag.

Can't stand people who think their kids are perfect little angels. My son would NEVER will probably bite you in the butt one day.

I understand what you are saying, but I do not think my son is a perfect little angel. He does drive me nuts sometimes, I think all teenagers will, but what I meant was that he has never been one to bully or gossip about others, to spread hurtful rumors, etc. I did not raise him that way. He is more the kind who sticks up for the underdog. Being that I was bullied in school, I am very sensitive to kids who do it so nonchalantly.

This happened last year across the border:

Just in case you think that students can't be disciplined for things posted online.
