Girls Basketball Team Pours Urine Into Rivals' Water

Girls' Basketball Prank Shocks Two Communities

In an incident that has parents in two Missouri communities reeling, four members of Cassville High School's girls basketball team are being disciplined for spiking the drinking water of their opponents at Monett High — with urine.

With concerns running high about the possibility that the stunt may have transmitted disease, the Monett Times reports that school officials immediately notified parents by letter. But Brad Hanson, Monett's superintendent, is calling for cool heads: "We all need to remember that people make mistakes whether we're adults or 14- to 18-year-old kids. . . . I'm asking for our students, coaches, and community to take the high road on this and show we are the classy people we are."

Sure kids and adults make bad choices. This is disgusting, disrespectful, and premeditated. It's one thing to slip up yourself with a bad choice, but entirely another thing when you involve someone else and they could get hurt. Community service and an apology would do good here.

This is the kind of disgusting thing expulsions are meant for. It amazes me that something as sickening as this goes relatively unpunished but a six year old child gets suspended for hugging/kissing another child innocently. I think a revamp of the schools is greatly overdue and a more common sense approach is necessary. They want six year olds to act like adults but allow young adults to act like children? Hummm...

It's sad that young adults no longer have enough respect to be decent. This is rude and disgusting. If my son did this he'd be doing community service for a long time. Also he would go directly to everyone he contaminated and apologize. We need a higher standard of behavior in this country period.

I'd think a little community service should be in order so that these students can see exactly what happens when you risk the safety and health of other people in the real world.
