What You Put Online

I've talked to a lot of students who say they don't really expect privacy online - that there's a good chance that whatever they post could somehow become public.  A teenager in Ohio recently found that out firsthand when a photo she appeared in led to her suspension from her high school's cheerleading squad.

This is a tough question, and there's no right or wrong answer to it:  How do you decide what's okay to put online?

    I decide what's good to put online and what's not good by going by school rules. Everyone knows what is appropriate or not and should always try to make the right decision. You should know by now that all websites leave little "cookies" behind and they can always come back and trace your computer. So be careful what you put online or you will regrett it in the future!!!

      The internet is the last free media. Trying to police it is removing freedom of expression

    I think that putting pictures or blogging about someone else isn't a good thing because you never know who's going to see it. The picture or blog of that person can create embarassment or a problem.

    I would never put any pictures online that I wouldn't want my grandmother to see.

    The most I ever put on is a picture. And COMPLETELY dressed. On my facebook or myspace or any other online website I will NOT give out my address or town and state I live in. Taking it to far is people adding prive things phone number,town and state they live in ect.

    How do you know? Well, here's all you have to think: would I say or show this stuff in person? Think of that.

    You can only know if it is good to put it online if it is something that wouldn't get you in trouble somehow. What happened to the girl could happen to any of us. No information online is private. There are hackers that can find it. So if it is something that you don't want someone to see then don't put it up or on or post it etc.

    October 25, 2010 at 6:11 pm |
  8. Lauren

    The way I would decide on what to put online would be if I would say or show it to others. If not its probably not good to put online because you never know who may see it.

    i really just dont put stuff that is inappropriate, or private, online. if my parents let me look at it, i put it online.

    In my opinion, what is okay to post online is something that won't hurt you or someone else. Kids have learned from a young age what may hurt someones feelings and they should do the same things while they're online. Kid's shouldn't post their or anyone else's information while online for that reason. Kid's should use their own judgement on what's inappropriate and if they think it may be at all they should be safe and not post it or they may get in a lot of trouble.

    It is common sense not to put something bad online. Anything to anyone that is offensive, or just follow movie ratings

    October 25, 2010 at 7:06 pm |
  14. Sarah

    I decide what to put online according to my grandma's seal of approval. If something i put online might be inappropriate i wonder what my grandma would say about it if she saw it.

  15. Gabriela

    People should know that what you put online is what should be there or not. It can be easy to put things any where online which we should be careful of.

    October 25, 2010 at 7:40 pm |
  16. Brianna

    I think you have to be very careful about what you put online. I feel that there is always a chance someone can read it, and that it can go public. When I decide what to put online I usually make sure that its not offensive to anyone in anyway, because then I feel like I dont have to worry about hurting anyones feelings. I think when we are younger it is harder to be the judge of what's wrong to put online, but some stuff is obvious. But its hard to not make mistakes because the internet is becoming apart of a lot of people's daily lives, and many people want to express their opinion on things, but a big part to my decision is whether its offensive or inappropriot. If it is, it definately changes my decision on whether or not I post it or not.

    Kids should be able to put stuff on line because it is there opinion if they want to or dont want to that is my opinon.

    You should always think to yourself, "Will what I'm posting right now will effect me later?" And always get a parents opionion on what you post from photos to status updates.Always feel confidnent in what you post!

    October 25, 2010 at 8:02 pm |
  19. Mollie :)

    How I decide to post something online is I think about who I am afecting by posting this. When I want to put a picture up I think about if there is anyone I could hurt in anyway including my self by posting this online. Also it is never aceptable to post personal info of someone else online leave it to them to do what they want online . This is how I decided what to post online.

  21. Aaron

    you should first think about if you will get in trouble, because we have all been in an situation or probably been in one but about 75% of us would put it on line 25% would think about it. But remember would you want someone to do that to you. What comes around goes around. Read this carefully and you will learn.

    i do not have a facebook but if i did i would post something that's appropriate and intresting for others to observe, enjoy and they can sometimes learn from it

  23. Anya

    I think that bad photos should never be put online because if your going into work somewhere, they would go ahead and look at your pages and when they look at your facebook and thats on there, they won't allow you.

    October 25, 2010 at 8:14 pm |
  24. Maria

    If there is ever even the slightest bit if hesitation about putting something online – don't put it.

  25. Samantha

    There is nothing wrong with that picutre. If someone was holding the beer and that picture was taken she cant be in position of it because shes not holding it. I am pretty sure she wasnt drinking it so the school had no reason to suspend her at all. I am a criminal justice student and she cant be suspended if she didnt have it in her hand and also if she wasnt drinking it.

    October 25, 2010 at 8:21 pm |
  26. Bobby

    I think that this should not be a problem because if your old enough to get on the website. You should be old enough to know by now what is bad to post and what is good. What I think you should do is think to your self what happens if all of your family sees the photo and is it school "safe".

    October 25, 2010 at 8:24 pm |
  27. vanessa

    i really think that people should not people should but pictures like that or unapporiate because you never know who is going to see it and what might happen to you for others looking at your blog and seeing your pictures

    October 25, 2010 at 8:25 pm |
  28. Prithivraj

    It's okay to put blocked out photo's... but it is still wrong to do because of what the people look at. It could potentially put you in danger.

    Well i have a facebook account and i set up privacy thing where no one can go on google or anything like that and look up my name and be conected to my facebook wall. But a lot of my friend's dont have any kind of privacy setting on there account so i could go to google images type there name in an a picture of them well come up. They don't see a problem with it though. I think its kind of sad and anybody could search them up online get to their facebook page and insantly know where they go to school every thing.

    October 25, 2010 at 8:37 pm |

    I would'nt put any pictures online that my family would be embarrassed by me.

    Be careful what you put online because the world will see it even if you don't want them too so only put things that you will feel comfortable about letting people see online

  32. Deanna

    I don't have a facebook but some of my friends do. They don't have pictures like that but if they did I would be disapointed that they would do that.

    October 25, 2010 at 8:52 pm |
  33. Michael

    I think when you post something online you should think that millions of people will see and you should be careful about what you post. When you take a picture you should think about if it will hurt someones feelings or make them humiliated.

    October 25, 2010 at 8:53 pm |

    I never put any personal information online. Even when a site asks for a birthday I make one up.

  35. Austen

    I think people should know what to put online and not to put online using common sense. I think that school had no right to suspend that girl from cheerleading because it was outside of school and her and her parents told them what happened. They're just telling their students we don't trust you.

    October 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm |
  36. Austin

    Theres no true right and wrong on what you put on the Internet (in moderation) we can only infer by experience and possibly your morals and ethics that you embody as a person. Remember it is your responsibility to make the right decision, a a slip, even a minute one can ultimatly affect you in the end.

    October 25, 2010 at 9:23 pm |
  37. Angie

    What I put online shouldn't matter, because those sites said that they were going to give us privacy, however, we can never expect that. Me, personally, would never even post a picture of myself, my friends, or my family. If I wanna share a picture, I'll text to my friends. For a profile pic, I'll find some kind of icon, or make something at picnik. You never know who is going to see what you post online even if you set it on "Friends Only" or whatever because there are really smart people out there that can hack facebook/myspace/etc and see your pictures. I just wish that one day, we can post pictures and know that no one but our friends can see...that day is far, far, FAR, away.

  38. Manyta

    I honestly think that she should have been more careful with what is posted on facebook. I mean almost every teenager has one and every other parent has one it is a huge socializing network. However I do agree with the mom too they had a person watching out if there was any drinking going on and do you think she was the type of mom who would letter daughter drink?!

    What bussiness of the schools what she puts on her facebook? That's her private bussiness. The shouldn't invated her privecse. They have no bussiness on her page! That my take on it.

  41. Sofia

    I think the pictures that you put on facebook must be extremely appropriate. You should never include pictures that you don't want the entire world to see.

    October 25, 2010 at 9:36 pm |
  42. michael

    I think that you should not post anything online if you dont want anyone to see it. And should not put anything online if it has to do with things like that. Plus in the pic. does not show there hands so they could be lying

    I feel like whatever you put online you should be careful and will never go away. Things that get online spread quicker than anyone knows

    If you dont want others to see it,or you think they will think something bad about it,DONT PUT IT ON THE INTERNET!!

  45. Jee

    what's okay to be put online is that people can accept the consequences. When people think they can take care of the possibly worst consequence, then they can put online whatever they want.

    October 25, 2010 at 9:52 pm |
  46. Annika

    If you put something online you should check if it is ok and won't hurt your life.

    October 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm |
  47. Jesse

    I believe in appropriateness, but I also believe in honesty. Most people should want to be liked and respected for who they are, not who they may think they need to pretend to be. Of course, with this comes people who may not like or respect said person, but at least they're still being themselves. I know that I, personally, do not put up a facade to please a certain group or person, so I have no regrets when, for example, posting a picture or sharing a link on Facebook, even if a certain person may not appreciate it, I, and other people, may appreciate it. The bottom line is that whatever is posted online is up for critique by anyone, and their mind will form its own opinions on the matter, and they will deem it in a completely different way than someone else.

    October 25, 2010 at 10:14 pm |
  48. Kalea

    I think if it's something you or your friend doesn't want people to know, it's not okay to put online. If it's something about a friend or someone at school it's defineatly not okay to put online without permission. People also shouldn't post personal information online because anyone has access to it, and that could be dangerous.

    October 25, 2010 at 10:15 pm |

    I think you can put something online as long as it's not private.

    Some people post embarrassing photos or comments of people mostly because they are jealous or really hate that person. If you know that what you're doing is wrong, then don't do it, because it can lead trouble, and someone might be upset because of it.

    October 25, 2010 at 10:23 pm |
  52. Christine

    I ask my parents before even putting anything online. i ask them what's appropriate to them and what's not and they tell me exactly which pictures to put on the internet. i make sure that it's appropriate and that it's a good picture then i post it with my parents permission.

    October 25, 2010 at 10:29 pm |
  53. Alex

    You can put things online that are appropriate. If you wouldn't let your parents or teachers see them, it's not safe to put online.

  55. Thomas

    What you put on a social network can sometimes have a consequence to them. If you post th wrong photo than it can lead to problems and i n some cases suspension from school. To make a decision on weather or not to post a picture on facebook, think it through first. Surely if you stop and think about the photo you're about to post, common sense should kick in and let you know weather or not it should be posted or not. Basically, the way to choose weather or not to make a post is to think about the consequences and make sure they are ALL positive before you make any kind of post on a social network.

    October 25, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  56. katia!

    i would have to say anything that you would not be embarrassed to show your parents or anyone in your family. and don' t put anything private that can be used against you.

  57. Amanda

    People shouldn't put anything online! Not only is it always there forever, but any one can see it! Everyone INCLUDES your grandmother or even a burgler or kidnapper! That's why if I post anything at all, it's pictures of random, nice things or pictures of my pets.

    Only you can decide what is okay to put online. If you don't want people making rude comments about it or if you don't want to get in trouble, think twice before pressing upload.

    October 25, 2010 at 11:34 pm |
  61. Johnny

    This is wrong of the school to do without evidence, there is nothing wrong about the picture and i think that the school should withdraw the suspension.

    If I were her, I will set my facebook as a private account. So only me can see my account, my information and my pictures.If others want to see my account, ask my permission first then I will let them check it.

  63. Ameera

    I think that we should use our common sense to think if something is inappropriate or not. You shouldn't post anything that you wouldn't want the public to view or something very personal to you. Things posted online should be appropriate, safe, and won't harm any damage to your own identity.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:24 am |
  64. Aaron

    Whatever you post online is not always about whether it is funny or interesting, it would be wise to think about how it will affect YOU before you actually post it online

    October 26, 2010 at 12:25 am |
  65. Raghav

    I think it's ok to put pictures online of you and your friends at, for example, social events, but not anything that shows you in an inappropriate or embarrassing situation. These could potentially be used against you and affect you in later life if your peers find it. Be conservative when posting pictures and information online, and you should be fine. (:

    October 26, 2010 at 12:27 am |
  66. Mae

    I make sure that they aren't too private and the people that are in it allow it to be on publicized. What is on facebook stays on facebook, its still there after you delete it. You just can see it and at the same time, people can source for you on your photos. The best we can do if we really want to post pictures is to change the privacy status of it, so you can try to keep it as private as possible.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:27 am |
  67. Youjin

    I think that the photos that we post online should not contain any offensive message to anyone although it may sound like a joke. People should think about what would other people think when they see the inappropriate pictures. Although an online site such as Facebook has privacy settings, the pictures can leak out in some way and impact anyone's life easily.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:28 am |
  68. William

    I think something is acceptable to put online only if you could directly tell anybody what the people were doing in the photo. The picture should not have even been taken if to some people, it looks suspicious as a violation to the law, or to something anyone (even a stranger) could take offense to.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:28 am |
  69. Kate

    In this day and age, any information stored online is available to possibly thousands of random people. Using key words or names, any picture, post or other information, anyone with the right Google Search can see countless pictures or other private information. This is to be expected, and people, especially teens, should be wary what they put online.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:28 am |
  70. Fab

    I think the things you put online should be appropriate. The things you put online are the things that you know are going to be announced to the whole world. You should also know that whatever you put online shows that you aren't the one doing inappropriate things. You should control any pictures that you think are unnecessary and delete them or you don't upload it to Facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:28 am |
  71. Karan

    I decide what's good to put online and what's not good by going by school rules. Everyone knows what is appropriate or not and should always try to make the right decision. the things you do online may affect your and may affect other peoples future also!!!!!

    October 26, 2010 at 12:28 am |
  72. Anamika

    First thing is that why would we want to put something inappropriate? Even if you think its inappropriate, you would get that sense of not putting it in there the first place. There are other things that are inappropriate for kids to see. I don't think the teenagers photo is a very big issue. The school must provide them with enough information about their accounts and other private things that are online.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:28 am |
  73. Brian

    I think you should think carefully before post something online. They shouldn't post anything that might heart someones's feeling and get in to trouble. Once it is posted on online everyone can see and make comment about it.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:29 am |
  74. Dakshina

    I don't post images of myself on interactive sites such as Facebook according to school-wide regulations. I do so predominantly because I don't suppose school should barge into activities outside of school. It is though, important to fathom the significance of the images that are shared internationally. They represent you and symbolize your character, your personality and your behavior. Facebook is also a tool of judgment. Images with alcohol, derogatory comportment or revealing outfits can have a negative impact on the way people perceive you. Never post an image of yourself that would be considered appalling by anyone else's standards.

  77. Minjung

    I think people should put their level's poster. It means, child should not put adult's poster or bad language toward to other people. And adults should not put the obstacles for children. All of kinds of people have to try to make internet better.

    If it even looks misleading then don't put it on anything that you don't want the world to see, it's just a fact.

  81. Sidney

    Ty,
    You are so correct.
    Once you post something it is there for everyone to see and you can't always delete it if you already hurt them.
    I think that they are being unjust and unfair they don't have to beleive everything they see in a picture you know.....

    We should put photos in Facebook which isn't sexual,swearing,and violent.Even kids are using it.

    In regard to the girl who was suspended by her school for the pic she posted on FB, bad judgemnet, yes! I still don't think she should be punished for something she did off school grounds. For last 2 months or so, I've been hearing about how bullying is so rampant in our schools. where are administrators and their "0" tolerance then? Are they waiting to gather up troops for the anti-bullying task force?

  84. Ben

    I think that if she really thought about it, she wouldn't have posted that picture. She knew others would see it, and it did look like SHE was the one drinking, not the other person. The school should have every right to suspend someone they think drunk, even once, from school activities/. She should now think before she posts.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:32 am |
  85. Ben

    I never would post a picture of me with beer online, where anyone could see it. So I really think the school has every right to suspend her from cheerleading. That picture made it look like she was the one drinking, not the other person, and because of that, look at the turnout. This might be a warning to think before you post, because this could end up pretty bad, so just be carful what you put online.

    I think the best things to put online are things that won't hurt others feelings and something that does not give others weird thoughts about you.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:57 am |
  88. anonymous

    i belive that you need to be cautious when posting things online so that people don't get the wrong idea about you also you need to use common sense to not poast anything bad

    October 26, 2010 at 7:14 am |
  89. Sammey

    I think that this could go both ways the girl was posing or she was drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:20 am |

    i put online what i think is best for me and what i know is good to everyone

    October 26, 2010 at 7:22 am |
  91. Tristan

    Nothing is really ok to put online. Just dont putanything bad in the blog, Facebook page, Email. 9 times out of 10 your gunna have it go to others.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:25 am |
  92. Aidan

    Most of the people out there are effected by what they post on facebook. It can destroy their whole life. I agree with Ty, you should put only what you think is comfortable and for others to. It should never effect anyones feelings in any bad way.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:30 am |
  93. Grace

    I decide what to put online by thinking about what my mom would be okay with seeing online.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:59 am |
  94. Dagen

    I think kids should be able to put any picture they want on facebook. Just as long as its not with drugs or alcohol. Kids should have the freedom of what they put on facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:00 am |
  95. Tye

    I think people have a right to have their own lives outside of school or work. People need to just stay out of their business. Just as long as their personal life doesn't interfere with their education or work.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:02 am |
  96. Myranda

    I decide by thinking what I would want other people to see. 'cause whatever you post online could be seen by ANYONE.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:03 am |
  97. Kevin

    I think personally that other people shouldn't check on peoples facebook cause thats how that person lives there outside life and it has nothing to do with getting a job.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:05 am |
  98. steffin

    i think whatever you put on your Facebook is your business as long it is appropiate

    October 26, 2010 at 8:07 am |
  99. Austin

    I choose to put only good stuff on ma facebook because my mom has one so she can see whats on it to.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:07 am |
  100. Zach

    in my opinion, i think things that would be harmful to my life and things that can hold me back from playing hockey and getting a job are the worst things to post so i would never do it. and if you really want to have every thing be okay, you can ask your parents to check what you are posting every once in a while

    October 26, 2010 at 8:08 am |
  101. josh

    its okay to put something online that you wouldn't mind you parent seeing

    October 26, 2010 at 8:08 am |
  102. misty

    I don't put any pictures that someone could blackmail me with. I watch what i put on my status because it could get back to my mom or taken the wrong way. I don't put any personal information (address, phone number, name, ect.)

    October 26, 2010 at 8:10 am |
  103. Julio

    I personally wouldn't post anything I wouldn't want people to know. You know if it's ok if you don't mind people knowing what you post, but it's not ok if you know it can get you in trouble (ex. drugs, alcohol, etc...)

    October 26, 2010 at 8:11 am |
  104. donald

    People have learned from a very young age what you should and shouldn't put on the internet. A person should be more aware of what they put on their profile. Like we have a cop that is on most if not all of the students facebook......so it's more of a danger for my school if we get cought with a picture or a stat that says something that might get us into trouble not only with our boss or school but also with the police.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:12 am |
  105. Trey

    What you say or put online can not be held against you. There is freedom of speech in the United State. My school did this to me once and we overruled this because it was on Facebook, and they could not hold something against me that was online, it is an out of school activity.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:15 am |
  106. Danielle

    Deciding what to put online isn't a hard question because you know what schools,jobs,parents look for in the pictures. Everything that is posted online can be seen so don't post anything you wouldn't want someone seeing.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:17 am |
  107. Eric

    I think she should of notice that the picture looked bad, so I question why she put her with a beer bottle in front of her mouth on facebook?

    October 26, 2010 at 8:19 am |
  108. Juny

    As far as I'm concerned, I upload my photos unless they
    harm other people(privacy or other rights). I also think merely
    holding beer bottles does not prove you had alcohol...The standards are a little bit ambiguous but still this is clearly
    a matter of serious debate.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:19 am |
  109. Alec

    Its true you really should monitor what you put online cause it can really hurt you in the long run but that doesnt give the school a right to suspend her for a picture online. Especially without the concent of her parents.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:20 am |
  110. Luke

    I think kids have good enough judgement to know what to put online or not what put online by using common sense, knowing if there going to get in trouble or not.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:21 am |
  111. Alix

    You should always make sure that what you put online isn't misleading. If the picture had just been zoomed out a little and the girl next to her really was holding the bottle, she probably wouldn't have been suspended. It's her own fault.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:22 am |
  112. Ellie

    I think this girl shouldn't be kicked off cheerleading squad. I don't think they have the proof that it was in her position. Yes, it was in the picture, but it didn't show that she had it in her hand.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:23 am |
  113. billy

    I think what she did was inapropriate she shouldn't have even been around the beer.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:24 am |
  114. josiah

    I think that the school should not have suspended her because her parents don't support under age drinking and they had an officer to prevent this from happening

    October 26, 2010 at 8:24 am |
  115. Cara

    i think she should still b on cheerleading because she didnt have it in her hand. Its not right. it may be illegal but still...

    October 26, 2010 at 8:25 am |
  116. Jimbo

    I think it was a good idea for the school to suspend her for putting pictures like that online. Now kids might start thinking about what they put online. Kids have become much to careless about privacy these days.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:25 am |
  117. achmead

    this is inappropreate because she is to young

    October 26, 2010 at 8:26 am |
  118. kaylyn

    I personally don't think that they should have suspended that girl. I do realize when you put pictures up online you need to be carefull, but they had no proof that she was drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:27 am |
  119. Brandon

    would this be good for my boss to see if not dont post it.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:28 am |
  120. Maxx

    Theres no good way to tell whatss ok to put online and whats not. There are to many opinions to appease them all for you to be considered good by all. Youy just need to put what you personaly feel is ok and keep the originals or the same picture from diffrent angels to prove what your saying. the only way to truly conteract a photo is with another photo.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:29 am |
  121. Amanda

    I have a facebook, and i put pictures of friends but i make sure it does not look like im doing something bad.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:31 am |
  122. kyler

    i dont think it really matters what you put online. its what you want. if you put a picture of you with a beer bottle up online then yes people are going to see a picture of you with a beer bottle online. i think if you want people to know you, then put up pictures or information of things you do regardless of what people think. The beer bottle picture on facebook is ridiculous nor should a school get involved outside of school. after all its a social network and we all have lied about ourselves to make ourselves look better at some point. it is a social network after all

    October 26, 2010 at 8:32 am |
  123. vincent

    Never put something online that you wouldnt show your parents!

    October 26, 2010 at 8:33 am |
  124. Samantha

    I think people should whatch what they put online because you don't know who is going to see it.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:34 am |
  125. Devin

    I think that if you want to put photos online even facebook that you should only put on want you want people to see. If you didn't want people to see the picture why are you advertiseing it on the internet for everyone to see. If the picture is "missleading" like the girl in the shows was and you don't know if people will take it in the wrong way then keep it off the web. But on the other hand I don't think schools should suspended you based on your facebook page either.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:35 am |
  126. C.J.

    Even though it may not be smart to post photos on facebook, it is a person's right to do so. The school should not discipline a student based on an outside photo.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:35 am |
  127. hanhee

    we have to care about the stuff that going to send or looked by friends.Some reason, we need some special company that protect person's private stuff in online.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:38 am |
  128. John

    Yes, you never know whos going to look at the pic but its not right to jump to conclusions right away.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:49 am |
  129. Brian

    On the issue with the cheerleader, the photo was taken off-campus at an event that the school was not sponsoring. If issues such as this involve another student off-campus out of school hours, then that issue should be dealt with among the students' parents.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:54 am |
  130. Brian

    When I post something on Facebook, I first make sure that the photo does not break rules. For photos that have other people in them, I take them down when I hear directly from them to do so.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:56 am |
  131. Shook

    The things that I'm ready to put on internet is the things that can not be used in any bad way. For example, if I put my email address on the internet, I would get millions of spam mail. But if I put pictures of me reading a book on a couch would not be any problem.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:59 am |
  132. KEVIN

    I think she should'nt got insuspnend for that. Their goes the school blowing staff out of the water again.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:05 am |
  133. Mitchell

    I think that it's okay in my opinion overall for someone to post an image of something on FaceBook that the whole world can see. There is no reason to be susspended from school just for an image.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:06 am |
  134. Samistine

    I think that suspending the cheerleader was wrong because she wasn't even on school property.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:09 am |
  135. Lynsie

    i think that students do need to be careful what they post online but it was not in school so i think that the punishment is not fair. When your parents see the picture and dont get upset then the school has no right to be involved. Its a parents problem not the students.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:15 am |
  136. Lynsie

    i think that students do need to be careful what they put online because alot of people can see your pictures. But i also think that she should not have gotten in trouble because she was not present in school therefore its a parents problem not the schools problem.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:17 am |
  137. katarina

    it would be bad for you and what will happen so I wouldn't unless I'm sure of the picture

    October 26, 2010 at 9:18 am |
  138. john

    what you post onlline is your business not the schools .

    October 26, 2010 at 9:20 am |
  139. Makiya

    Minors or anyone under 21 should'nt have alchohol. She's lucky she only got a suspension from school. It could have resulted in something way worse that had to do with the law!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  140. Nicole

    I think it’s rely stupid that they suspended her for going to a wedding and having innocent fun with her family. First of all it wasn’t even her drink and it wasn’t in her hand. Second, this action had nothing to do with school, anyways. Third, why in the world would somebody turn in a picture of a girl they know from school? Her mom sounds frustrated and so does she, I say just let her back in school and let’s move on.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  141. Jordan

    To decide what you put online whether it is a picture or comment you shouldn’t put it online if you wouldn’t want your parents or your school principle to see it.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:23 am |
  142. Brent

    If there is nothing illegal in the picture, or nothing inappropriate then it is okay to post. Also, it is okay to post a picture of another person only after asking them for permission.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:25 am |
  143. Nick

    People should be careful what they put online. Make sure it is appropriate. If it's inappropriatemake sure you have good privacy, therefore people you don't want to see it, won't.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:25 am |
  144. Amy

    They way you should know if some thing is alright to put online is think about what you you find alright and your age level. Think about if your mother or father would allow it. If you know some one in your family would think its not then don't post it, if you aren't sure if is or isn't then ask your parents. If they say no then don't put it up but if they say it is alright then go for it.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:26 am |
  145. Ashley

    If you think anything is questionable you should not put it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:26 am |
  146. Tysean

    I decide by doing this if you wouldnt want your mom to see it then dont put it on the internet

    October 26, 2010 at 9:26 am |
  147. miranda

    never put too much information online.
    don't put anything innapropriate.
    be careful what you say.
    think about who will see what you post.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:27 am |
  148. Dakota

    Drinking screws up your life anyway so you shouldn't pretend to drink in pictures.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:27 am |
  149. alex

    i do not put anything online that gives out any personal information or that my parents will not really like.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:27 am |
  150. Tray

    I think it;s kind of hypocrtical because who's to say what's right and what's wrong and besides what say does a school have over what a girl does at her own time besides you can put juristiction on what someone does for fun that's messed up.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:27 am |
  151. Belen

    In my opinion i think you should put something that wont hurt you or someone els. Also you shouldnt put pictures that you dont want people to see or that you know would get you introuble.Before putting something on facebook you should think about.:)

    October 26, 2010 at 9:27 am |
  152. Quinten

    I think that the person should not put some thing on their blog that they can no take back. I also think that they should have a parent check it.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:28 am |
  153. Chloe

    we all know what we put on line is there forever. what you but on there should not be any thing that has drugs or any thing that is not very acceptable for the law.I would but picks of me and my friends and family having good times.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:29 am |
  154. tevoon

    oh okay i feel as though kids know from right to wronq so it's your decision !

    October 26, 2010 at 9:29 am |
  155. aliyah

    I decide what is good to put online by making sure that nothing is inappropriate for the viewers, or nothing will come off as inappropriate. If I post any of my friends on my page i would ask them first before going further in the posting process.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:29 am |
  156. alcie

    In my opinion, what is okay to online is something that won't hurt anyboby's feelings. Also, one that is safe that you can put online, or won't be viewed in a negative way, or predator way so they know where they might find you and do something inappropriate.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:29 am |
  157. Zachariah

    First I would look for any bad pictures online, then I would pick any bad photos( if there are any )out and if they are dirty or if its a violation of the code of conduct i would delete them or wouldn't post it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:30 am |
  158. Teresa

    that you shouldn't put pictures on the internet that you don't want people to see . like when your not well dressed in pictures you shouldn't post them on any website

    October 26, 2010 at 9:30 am |
  159. karla

    you should put what evr you think wont make you introuble, and put pictures thta you know that you would get introuble in school or with your parents. you knw what i mean

    October 26, 2010 at 9:30 am |
  160. Teresa

    You shouldn't post inapproiate pictures on there that you don't want your friends, family or strangers see cause you will never know who looking at your pictures. plus you don't barely get any privacy on websites like facebook , myspace , and ect.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:33 am |
  161. Justin

    Somethingsshould be private and not public,so everyone can see.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:34 am |
  162. JB

    I would not put up a picture that even looks like i had something in my hand that i should not have.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:34 am |
  163. Sloane

    I decide what to put online by looking and seeing what is on it or in it. If it is something bad or something that you should not be doing then do not ever get caught doing it or take pictures or vidoes of you doing watever it is that you are doing. If so you might get caught and get in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:35 am |
  164. jonae

    Well I wouldn’t put inappropriate photos on online where ever one can see them because just it might come back and haunt me just like what happened to the teenage girl in Ohio.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:36 am |
  165. kayla

    i think kids should ask there self if they would be okay with there parents seeing the picture, and if so then its exeptable to put on the internet.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:37 am |
  166. Brandon

    If you post something online it shouldn't affect school unless it actually shows you doing something wrong. She might have been holding the bottle but it can't be proven and she didn't drink it, is it a crime to hold it for a photo or be in a photo with some. Innocent until proven guilty. And it can't be proved!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:43 am |
  167. Kayla

    You should not put pictures up online if you dont want the whole internet to see them.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:48 am |
  168. Leelinde

    Well I guess if you put a misleading picture up then it's only reasonable that people would take it the wrong way. Either way you shouldn't be suspended for events that happen outside of school.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:48 am |
  169. Leanna

    The question i ask before i put anything on my facebook: IS WHAT I AM DOING LEGAL??? obviously if i say yes then i am not going to put it on there. Everything that you put on the internet can be brought back up. IT IS PERMANENT!!!!!!!!!!!! if you dont want to get in trouble for it then dont put it on any social networks or on the interent!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:49 am |
  170. Colin

    While students should be careful putting anything on the internet, schools should really not be looking at their social networks. Also, there are several programs that can easily edit objects into pictures

    October 26, 2010 at 9:50 am |
  171. Mase

    With everyone being able to view what you put online, you should put into consideration what you wouldnt want your parents or school officals would get heated over.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:50 am |
  172. Savannah

    Any one posting something online should keep in mind who will see the post and refrain from things that are illegal or potentially embarassing.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:51 am |
  173. Elizabeth

    if it goes against your morals dont post it, but if it doesnt do work!!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:52 am |
  174. Mary

    Everyone uses the internet, don't put pictures on the internet that will get you in trouble. Why would you want a picture of yourself looking like your holding or drinking a beer (even though you may not be) on the internet? The only answer I can think of is that the person wants attention, or wants to be thought of drinking. It serves them right to be suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:52 am |
  175. Camryn

    Whoa! This story just proves the whole concept of having good privacy! If the family told the school SHE DID NOT DO IT the school should belive them! Everyone out there who uses Facebook: BE CAREFUL! Its sad she got banned from the cheerleading team for something she didnt do! This is not OK... Kids should know when something is going to get them in trouble!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:53 am |
  176. Laniciana

    just dont put anything online or ask your parents.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:55 am |
  177. Kishanda

    before you post your pictures keep in mind that anything on the internet is not private, i dont know why you would post pictures of you drinking or smoking if you know there is a chance of it getting you in toruble, if you post pictures like that then it shouldnt be a suprise if you get suspened or kick off a team at school.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  178. Jacob

    Ithink you should ask your parents before you put something online that you dont know if it would be ok.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  179. Matthew

    Anything that deals with some sort of indecency would be bad for a picture, but the school shouldn't be going into the personal life's of the students. If it was in school then she should be suspended, not for her sisters wedding.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  180. Anna

    If you're doing something that even looks bad, I wouldn't put it online. Anyone can see it and they wont know what really happened. Anyone can see it and it could lead to suspension.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:56 am |
  181. sidnee

    if its something with drugs in the picture or it's inappropriate you should not post it.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  182. RACHEL

    I think you should belooking at the picture first or what you are posting because you can get in troble or someone else will get hurt. So people out there...
    DO NOT BE POSTING BAD THINGS!!!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  183. Ashley

    If you're willing to write it or post it, you should be willing to accept the consequences. Everyone has different judgement but you're going to have to live with the reputation of what you post online.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:57 am |
  184. karla.

    I think people should know what's right and whats wrong. They're not dumb. They have rules. If you know you're not suppose to be next to alcohol why would you even do it?? if you know you have alot of enemies that will try to get you in trouble then you need to watch what you do for your own good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    October 26, 2010 at 9:58 am |
  185. Andrew.

    YOu shouldn't PUT ANY PIC WITH DRUGS ALCOHOL OR SEXUALLY SUGGESTIVE CONTENT IN IT ON THE INTERNET

    October 26, 2010 at 10:04 am |
  186. Chris

    As a student athlete you are automatically held to a higher standard. Facebook has become a social giant and a great form of technology. However, as a high school athlete you need to be extra cautious about what photos you post online. I feel the disciplinary actions were justified because the school policy clearly outlines what is considered inappropriate. I understand the parent’s disagreement, but I feel that it was a clear violation of the school's policies and a lack of judgment on all of the parties involved. The bottom line is that if you are underage you shouldn’t be in a photograph with alcohol and it certainly shouldn’t be posted on a social website.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:08 am |
  187. Gabbie

    The best way to know what not to put online is this. If you dont want your teachers or parents seeing it, keep it offline.

    She put that photo of her friend drinking. She posted that up on her personal profile if it was posted on her privacy no one has the right to take her photo and send it to her high school.

    I think that the school was wrong by suspending her from cheerleading. One kid from my school made a facebook page about a negative thing to our school but they didn't suspend him because they say it was out of school.

    I personally don't agree that the school should have suspended her from cheerleading, if she said that she wasn't drinking the beer , LET HER BE ! It does not matter what she does in her personal life . They should have never suspended the girl over a picture on facebook.

    I believe if a person is going to post a picture on a social networking site, he/she should consider whether or not the picture would get them in trouble in some way. At the same time, I do think that if it doesn't affect her school life, she shouldn't have been suspended from the squad!!!!!

    Beer is a dangerous thing to be holding. I can't blame the teachers for being worried, but I wouldn't suspend her from the cheerleading squad unless there was proof that she had been drinking from the bottle.

    If you want people to read it or see it, then put it on your website. If you don't want people to see it or you think it is offensive, then keep it to yourself

    I won't put a picture of me on any website, because i dont want to get in trouble,and people might take the picture and show some one, if them was in your school they might show the teachers will some one else.

    Putting things online are okay but if you know itz something privite or personal why bother to put it online . Remeber whats on the internet stays on the internet. You might just get people in trouble for something they didnt know was wrong.

      Don't put something online that will come back and haunt you someday. Parents,college,jobs,andschool look at what you post. Jobs and colleges don't want someone that will seem reckless and imature.

    If her mom was ok with her having the picture on facebook, then there really shouldn't be a problem. The school wouldn't have even known that the picture existed if someone hadn't ratted her out. I think that the school should have talked with her when her parents were present. The schoold doesn't have any proof that she was actually drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:16 am |

    i feel like the school board doesnt have the right to suspend her from her sport , then it was a picture with a beer that's none of there buisness ! and they would have found out unless somebody told probably somebody didnt like her and told ! and i agree with the mother her daughter wasnt drinking , and they have NO RIGHTS

    October 26, 2010 at 10:17 am |

    i think that its ok for the school to look at what you post on facebook because i think that you should only post stuff that you would be ok wish shareing to your whole school at a convacation. the consaquences were a little harsh though, for a picure mistakenly said for under-age dringing

    October 26, 2010 at 10:18 am |
  202. julia

    I think that the girl should not be suspended because she didn't drink any beer it was her sisters beer but they crossed their arms so its really stupid to accuse her of drinking when the mom said there was no underage drinking and there was also a cop there to prevent the that from happening.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:18 am |
  203. Naya

    I think that the Cheerleader shouldn't be punished.. I say that because I am a Cheerleader.. And if something like that would have happened I would be dissapointed, because I didnt do it. But the school really dosent have facts that the grirl was drinking. Her mother even said she wasnt. Why would somebody send the picture to the school. Were people jealous?I really think the school should have thought twice about the decision.....

  204. Athena

    There is no way to be sure who will look at what you put on line. You may not mean for anyone but your friends to see it, but its always possible. Make sure its appropriate, and if another friend is in the picture ask them before you post it. If you're younger you might want to ask an adult before posting it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:19 am |
  205. Keldrick

    I think the story on the girl suspended from the cheerleading team is wrong because facebook is a site to talk to friends and the school has no right to suspended her for something she posted on her own facebook page. The girl was not even drinking and just because she is next to someone who has a beer it's no reason to get her suspended, and i think the person who told the school is a hater and she might not have liked her. For example at my school this kid posted on facebook that we needed a new principal, but he did not get suspended but its all up to the school....

  207. James

    If you put something online that everybody can see that they deserve to be punished. But they should have done a legal search for invaision of privacy. The kid was holding a drink is not the same as drinking it. Iwouldn't even hold a drink because i would get in big trouble. The smartist thing to do is to get more information on the subject.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:19 am |
  208. TAYLOR

    I think that they shouldn't have put the girl off of the cheer leading team. The school needs to stay out of her business. Like she said, the picture shows that the girl next to her was holding the bottle. I could see if she was the only one in the picture holding the bottle, that would be a good reason to kick her off the team. They have no proof that she was drinking. What they should have done is ask some people at the party if she was drinking before they took action.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:19 am |
  209. Drake

    What you do after school is your own business. In the story, there isn't any actual proof that she was holding the beer.

  210. max

    Dont put anything online that could get you in trouble. even if it is on private you should not put anything on the internet that even LOOKS inappropate. I saw a picture of me holding a beer bottle and if anyone saw it i dont think i should get in trouble for it.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:19 am |

    The cheerleader was not drinking. She wasn't even holding the bottle. However, it wasn't the most appropriate picture. I wonder how school officials received site of the image.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:20 am |
  212. Alanna

    Personally, I think that suspending the poor girl was a little harsh. All she did was post a picture of her sister's wedding. She was just holding the bottle, and so the school suspended her. What if it had been like a root beer bottle or something? That would be a good headline. GIRL SUSPENDED FOR DRINKING ROOT BEER. Nice.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:20 am |
  213. Ben

    I think that schools shouldn't get involved with things that don't involve the school. to kick someone off the cheer leading squad is one thing but publicly embarrassing her when you don't know the whole story is another.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:20 am |
  214. Austin

    I do think that since she was underage and in a picture with a beer bottle towards her mouth, it was unacceptable. Since she was not at a school event or on school property, she should not be punished at school in any way. (Drugs are bad.) WWJD:)

  215. isaias

    I believe that the people or students should not invade other student's privacy and that this shouldn't be a big problem if there parents were there. I dont think this girl should be suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:20 am |
  216. Serenity

    I think that it's wrong that she got suspended from cheerleading because if her facebook page was private then people shouldn't be giving the school that picture. A private page is private not for everyone to see. What if she was holding a root beer bottle? And if it really was beer, it was her friend's bottle not hers. She wouldn't post a picture of her drinking anyway. These are my thoughts on this topic.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:20 am |
  217. Alan

    The school was wrong by suspending her from the cheerleading squad. There was no evidence from the picture that she was drinking, or even holding the drink. I think that the school needed to think about this a lot more instead of just suspending her without evidence that she was holding or drinking the drink. I believe if they thought about this more and talked to her parents, then she wouldn't be suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:20 am |
  218. Hannah

    I think that it's your choice to choose what you put online. If you post a picture or a status, it will most likely be seen by someone. If you don't want to be called out about something you post, don't post it. I think that the school went a little overboard. If she said that she wasn't drinking, then she wasn't drinking. If you saw a kid holding the steering wheel of a car, would you say that he was driving? Why would she be drinking if she knew that she could lose her spot on the cheering squad?|\

    In my opinion you should only post online what is smart. if you put a picture of a baby sitting on the edge of an open car door. Then the next day CPS is knocking on your door trying to take your baby. So only post smart things that will make since.

  222. Patrick

    I think that it is totally fair that she got suspended because if you put a picture out there for the world to see, and when someone interprets it the wrong way then you have no right to be angry.

    i agree because she should have not let the girl take the picture with beer, without knowing what could happen, Now she is suspended for a picture, she should have thought about what she did.

    I know what is ok to put online and what isnt ok, because of common knowledge also because, my parental units have talked to me about what is appropriate and what is not. Also, the girl wasn't even drinking, her friend was and her friend was holding the bottle. Just because the girl thought it was a funny picture and posted it doesn't mean it was wrong. It isn't the school's business about what goes on after school. It's just a picture and the punishment shouldn't have been that extreme. The school didn't even take the time to get the girl's side of the story. They just assumed that she was drinking and suspended her.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:23 am |
  229. Kaylen

    In my opinion , i believe you should only put appropriate things online , especially when it is PUBLIC . But i honestly think the school was wrong to suspend her because they cant really say she was guilty if drinking , by a picture ? They don't really have any proof ! I think they should have gotten some drug testing done or something , I mean cheer leading is this girl's life i don't believe she would drink beer knowing it will effect her.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:23 am |
  230. Oliver

    I think it was only right for the school to suspend her from the cheerleading squad because it is against the law to drink, and there is no clear evidence that she wasn't drinking. First of all, I don't think she should have posted such a suspicious picture, and second, I don't think that this 'anounymous' person who sent this picture to the school should have done that. So, I really don't think that it was the school's fault, but the person who posted the picture and the person who sent it to the school weren't mature about this.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:24 am |
  231. Katherine

    I think that the school had every right to suspend her from the cheerleading sqaud. I think that she should have thought about what people might think about it. The school did not go searching for the photo someone sent it in. The school is only following its rules. If they were to ignore the photo for one person they would have to for the whole student body.

    I disagree with the school's suspension. There is no evidence of her actualy holding the beer bottle. The school needs to become more lenient on suspending people. The action taken by the school upset this girl severly. This is something that must stop.

    i think that the girl should not have gottten suspended , but why would yu post a picture like that. At the time you might think that it is ok but in reality if you are under the age of 21 you should not be holding any type of alcohol . I have seen many people that are under ageholding a beer on facebook and the first thought through my mind was thats not very smart ! If it is only for a few games of the cheerlaeding squad then she shouldnt be over dramatic! It was her decision to post something for the world to see.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:25 am |

    I think it's okay that the girl was suspended for cheerleading.In the picture she was holding a beer and we can only inffer what really happened. It wasn't smart to post that picture anyway.

    That poor girl she didnt deserve to be suspended from the cheer leading she may have been in front of the beer bottle but no sign showed she was drinking it and school over steped their bounds.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:27 am |
  242. JADA

    I think that she shouldn't have to be kicked off the cheerleading squad for that because it wasn't for the school and it was outside of school and the picture wasn't that bad she was at an authorized wedding and I know that someone reported her but they should have said "I'm sorry but that is not that bad and unless you can PROVE IT that she was drinking that beer then there is nothing we can do I'm sorry" I mean it's not like she was a 5-year-old in a car seat at the weel driving with a beer and even if she was the mom and dad should get in trouble for letting the 5-year-old drive and have beer.

  244. Jeanae

    I think that what you decide to put on the internet is your choice and you know the consequences. So if you decide to post yourself drinking underage then you know what will happen if you get caught. But if you do what this girl did then you don't have any proof that she was actually drinking. Also if the picture wasn't cut off then people would understand what was really going on in the picture. People shouldn't be so quick to judge or comment on anyone's pictures or statuses. The person who told the principal about the picture didn't have any business telling about something that didn't involve him/her.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:30 am |

    I say if its questionable dont put it on. In this specific story she shouldnt have put it on just because there was a beer bottle in it nomatter who is holding it. Its questionable so think before you press click.

  246. Kathy

    I think that as long as you feel like the picture is appropriate then you can put it on the internet. You have to decide for yourself what kind of attention you want to attract from others people.

    I think schools bringing priavte private matters into the school is a rising action. The fact that the picture was outside the fasility and not connected in any way to the school, the school should not have had the right to bring the outside matter into the builing and punish the student.

All together if you wouldnt come to scholl wearing a t-shirt that has it on it don't put it online although the girl that got suspended was unfairly punished and should take legal action against the school to settle this matter leagally once and for all

  259. Kirstie

    People should use their common sense. People who are under the age of drinking should not put photos of them or other people drinking.. if they do. If you are 21 and older you can do that, but make it more respectful. Use your brain people! Don't put stuff online or post things that you know could get you in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:48 am |

    She should not be suspended because there is not enough evidnece to prove that she was actually drinking. Her mother even said she was not drinking that the other girl next to her was the one drinking and not her daughter.

  261. payton

    This is the girls fault. First don't add people as friends who could get you in trouble. You can set all your Facebook settings to private. Don't allow yourself to be tagged in the picture. And mostly don't drink at the party. She says that it wasn't her drink and her mom was "devastated". Sounds pretty fake to me.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:48 am |
  262. Elizabeth

    Don't put anything online you wouldn't want your granny to see. It's that simple. Use your common sense. I agree with her suspension. If I saw that online, then I would assume she was drinking too. Unless it is made completely clear by the photo that she is not holding the bottle, then it is fair to assume she was drinking.

    I'm pretty sure what she puts on her profile is her business and her business only. Having said that, I think she should have changed her privacy settings to a manner in which she was comfortable with, so this kind of thing wouldn't have happened. However, I myself wouldn't have expected a school to use something like suspension as a punishment for one indecent picture, and probably would have done the same thing.

    First of all, the school had no right to look at her personal information as it was not school related. There was also no conclusive evidence that she was holding the bottle. However I am not condoning her decision for posting that picture on a site that anyone can see. It was poor judgment on her and her parents part but regardless, the school's actions were too sudden and harsh.

    We are all old enough to know that what goes online is available for a lot of people to see so the smartest thing to do is think twice about what you are going to put online or even say. Teens usually think social networks are their own personal space but actually it is more complicated than that. Be careful of what is posted online for any future references it may come back to haunt you in a bad way.

    I think teachers at schools should't concern themselves with what students do outside of school, especially if they're not sure what they saw was right.

  273. Andre

    Well you should look at the things you are puting on online before you u do it.You should really think if u put something online and its not good you should make sure how much trouble you can get in to.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:53 am |
  274. Cameron

    I think the parents should superivse on what the kids post. Whatch what they post and and get online to see what they posted.

  275. De'von

    To decide what to put on line you should think twice and stay wise

    October 26, 2010 at 10:53 am |
  276. Sean

    I think the right way to decide whats alright to put on the internet is like appropriate thing such as just taking a group pictures with friend but not showing you nothing illegal or wrong on those pictures such as drinking beer or smoking or showing weapons.I think the pictures you have on the internet is a big cause of what things people might judge you on

    October 26, 2010 at 10:53 am |
  277. Michael

    I think you should post stuff online that wont come back and hurt you in the future. If you half to think twic about a post or a picture you put online don't put it. I say that because if you think twic about something someone in the world is too, and they might use that agent you in the future.

  278. Kaela

    I personally think it's ridiculous that they suspended that girl from Ohio, but she should have thought twice about putting the picture of her with a beer bottle on Facebook. If something is on the internet, that means everyone can see it. Even though it was a joke, and the school blew it way out of proportion, she should have figured a 16 year old with a beer bottle really isn't appropriate, especially for someone at school to see.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:54 am |
  279. Baron

    If you are in school or you still have a home then just put something on the internet that is appropriate. For example if you put a picture of yourself drinking or doing drugs then you could get into alot of trouble and your parents might be disapointed in you.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:54 am |
  280. marissa

    I would have not put that picture on facebook because anyone can look at it and if it has beer in the picture I would not at all put it on knowing that it would cause a problem like this,because anyone can look at it.It would be ok if you put a picture of a appropriet picture on it but notihng innappropriet that will cause problems or get me in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:54 am |
  281. Devin

    Think about if it's appropriate or if it effects somebody else. If you put something up, you are responsible.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:55 am |
  282. Lane

    The school should give her a second chance, but she also has to watch what she puts online.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:57 am |

    i think it was not smart(:

    October 26, 2010 at 10:57 am |
  284. Cortney

    I think that anything inappropriate that has to do with drinking,drugs, or illegal things should not be posted online. If it is going to harm you or any other person you should not post it online. People need to use there own judgment, if they wouldn't want their grandparents to see it then it shouldn't be online.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:58 am |
  285. Angel & Courtney & Jessica

    In our opinion you should not put revealing pictures of yourself or anyone online. It could come back to haunt you, and ruien your reputation of what people think of you. If you put a revealing picture of yourself, its at your own risk.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:58 am |
  286. Katie

    I don't think she should have been suspended but it was also not a very good idea to put that picture online in the first place. If she wasn't drinking then it wasn't really a big deal.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:58 am |
  287. Shelby

    people are on the internet all the time,i think people dont need to put bad pictures online because everyone will see them.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:58 am |
  288. JJ

    You could check with your parents.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:59 am |
  289. Jay

    I think that you should only put
    things online that wouldn't get
    you in trouble or arrested. You
    should also think about if you
    want the public to see it because
    anyone can view it when it's online,
    and it never goes away.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:59 am |
  290. Casey

    I think what is okay to put online is something that isn't inappropriate. I think that picture was not okay to put up on facebook because hundreds of people look at it and it looks like she was drinking. So whats the point of putting it up on facebook all it did was get her into trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:00 am |
  291. Christopher

    I personally think that even the thought of posting pictures of yourself online is just idiotic, think about all the creepers out there that you just let know what you look like. As for being suspended for a picture, wow! I think that a simple explanation would have been fine and that suspension is pushing it over the edge. And I don't see how the school could even not bother with talking to the parents first, I thought they were supposed to when a situation like this surfaces?

    October 26, 2010 at 11:00 am |
  292. Drew

    I think this girl got what she deserved! She admitted that it was in fact her beer when she spoke to the school administration. Then later when questioned, she changed her story saying it wasn't. She was probably just trying to be a "cool" teen and drink... She's a liar! She should go to jail and never be set free!

    October 26, 2010 at 11:01 am |
  293. Kenni

    I think people should take caution in things they put online. When posting things onto pages you have to notice even the little things. These things may not matter to you, but they might be big issues to others.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:01 am |
  294. zach

    i think if there is any question about someone doing anything wrong that it should not be put on the internet. if you know that you are not doing anything wrong and that the picture will not hurt you or anyone else, you should be able to post what you want.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:01 am |
  295. Richard

    I think she's guilty

    October 26, 2010 at 11:02 am |
  296. alex

    In my opinion it was dumb to put on here because most of schools policy is that any kind of possession of alcohol will be punished. They should have known that before they did it and now they are playing it off like they had no clue of the policy. She deserved it no excuses they are making to big of a deal out of something so small they shouldnt have done in the first place.Why even put it on there?

    October 26, 2010 at 11:02 am |
  297. Kaitlynn

    I think that the school had no right to get into a students problem outside of school and if she says the bottel waasnt in her hand in that picture then believe her it aint like the school or anyone else was there to say otherwise, even her mother said and showed the truth about what was going on in the picture. Its crazy how schools think they can run you even when your outside of school, i've had the same problem.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  298. Jonah

    I think because there is a bottle of beer in her hands that she should be suspended but only for a week since the school doesn't know details. It was stupid on her part for putting the picture on anyways. Anybody in there right mind would think "I probably shouldn't put this photo on facebook since there is a beer infront of my face".

    October 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  299. Morgan

    I think people are puting mean pictures on the internet because they want to be mean to that person. They are just being bullies.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  300. William

    She should have never put it on facebook where everybody could see .Knowing the consequences of acting or doing that .

    October 26, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  301. Emily

    I think that what you put online is your business, and as long as you're not hurting yourself, or anyone else. Although, if you're breaking school rules and drinking or being in the possession of an alcoholic drink, you need to prepare yourself for questions, and in this case, being suspended and you are going to have to suffer the consequences.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:05 am |
  302. alexa

    well to know what to put online is to look at what you say,like language,no profanity,and apropiate pictures.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:05 am |
  303. Laura

    In my personal opinion, students should know by now what is apporpriate and what isnt as for the pictures they post on facebook. When you post a picture or comment you are having anyone see and having them decide which way to interpret. Be responisble, respectful and know the standards. Use your common judgement, even if you think it was appropraite to be associated with a beer bottle at a wedding than so be it, but except the consequences that are in place following the school guidlines if to get caught.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:06 am |
  304. Logan

    I thought that this girl should be kicked off her cheer leading squad. She admited once to doing it, but when mom gets involved she copletely denies everything. If her mom is fighting so hard for her, she might want to take a step back and take a look at her daughter a little more and see who she is hanging out with and what kind of life style she is living behind her back. From my highschool experience, I can usually look at a person and find out what kind of life style that person has weather it is good or bad. I think this girl has a life style that her mom doesnt approve of, but is really good at keeping secerets.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:06 am |
  305. Tristan

    You have to think if it's illegal to put on the internet, but sometimes you should not post it if it's just inappropriate or can harm others. Remember that almost everything on a computer is public to everybody. Would you say all the things to your teachers that you put on the internet?

    October 26, 2010 at 11:08 am |
  306. Shelby

    i dont think people should put bad pictures on the internet beacause people are on there all the time. people could get in trouble for bad pictures,but it really depends on what it is. They could get in trouble at school like that one chick did and now shes not on the cheer team.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:08 am |
  307. brandi

    I think you should be very careful of what you post online. Maybe before posting a picture, comment, or anything, ask yourself this: "Would I be ashamed if my parents, grandparents, teachers, etc. saw this?" Also, if you know that your not doing anything bad in a picture but it may look like you are, take it off just in case. Some people dont care about your alibi or explanation, and will report it. Then you will be on the hot seat for something that wasnt even worth putting online whether you think its good or bad.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:09 am |
  308. mekayon

    You know what to put online because you know what's appropiate and what's not appropiate.Also,the pictures will spread all around the world,so you should not let people influence you by pictures.I would like to hear more advice behind this.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:11 am |
  309. Amber

    How in the world did they get that picture and plus there privacy right. There must of been someone mad at her for doing something to them or just picking on them.

    I think that we have are own chose on what we put on facebook or myspace is not the schools decision it's your decision.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:17 am |
  310. Mike

    First of all, i think we've all held alchoholic beverages for adults in our lives. Second, the school has no right to look at her facebook page unless it depicts the school or a student without permission. Last, the school doesn't know that the photo wasn't edited!

    October 26, 2010 at 11:18 am |
  311. Alex

    whoever did that to her was a bad person and i think she should be allowed back in cheerleading. a person should be allowed to have a life other than school and teachrs should not follow kids on facebook

    October 26, 2010 at 11:19 am |
  312. Gaeriel

    In my opinion, the way you decide what you can put online is dependant on your age, if your 13 and have [inappropriate] pictures on your facebook or myspace, you shouldn't be able to be on those websites. you are intitled to show what you want though, but be caustious

    October 26, 2010 at 11:21 am |
  313. Julia

    They have a right to be worried about her but I personaly would be too but I think it was a little low for them to susspend her.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:21 am |
  314. winnie

    i haven't post the aggressive comments and privacy information online. In my opinion, something you put online will be searched from all over the world. Internet is a public place, just like a big hall. you can't speak aggressively and loudly, or you will be taken as a madman, interfering with the people around. I like to post beautiful photos i took online, i hope people to appreciate those, and it's good to hear that someone likes my photos.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:22 am |
  315. joker

    i think that the skool shouldnt be going on peoples webpages like that looking through the photos, messages, and etc. sometimes its best just to leave ur nose to urself......

    October 26, 2010 at 11:30 am |
  316. Josh

    I think that what you post online will at some point be viewed and what you decide to put online is your own fault if you get in trouble. Whether or not she was holding the beer it looked like she was drinking and think that the school made a good choice. And Facebook gives you lots of cookies ( Viruses that make your computer start acting wierd ).

    October 26, 2010 at 11:34 am |

    i would not put ieligil stuff online

    October 26, 2010 at 11:37 am |
  318. josh

    I dont think she needs to get suspended for a picture thats just not cool anymore and what if she wasnt even holding the bottle someone else was she got suspended for nothing and there was a cop there so she couldnt...

    October 26, 2010 at 11:39 am |
  319. Michael

    Ever since google admitted they took emails & addresses from streetview, one has to expect that most social websites are easy access to find information on someone. I believe people younger than 18 shouldn't be allowed to have pictures of that genre

    October 26, 2010 at 11:40 am |
  320. Dave

    This is a good life lesson for this young person. It is better to be suspended from a school activity now than lose a job later.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:40 am |
  321. miles

    it realy shouldnt matter cuase not its in person or actual proof

    October 26, 2010 at 11:41 am |
  322. Connor

    The way you decide if you post online is if you wouldnt do it in front of your parents dont do it at all.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:44 am |
  323. Orrin

    I do not think she should have been kicked of the cheerleading team for that but it just goes for show what you put on the internet everybody sees it.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:45 am |
  324. Jess

    I think it was okey to put that picture online they really have no proof that it was her that was drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:45 am |
  325. Lance

    i think you should be careful what you put on the internet because it would be seen by everyone and if you don't your parents or your teachers or say preacher to see it then don't put it up

    October 26, 2010 at 11:47 am |
  326. Hayley

    I think that putting pictures on Facebook or Twitter or something is wrong because you have no idea who is going to see the pic because what if it is a really bad picture and some one you know sees it. It can embrass you and anyone else in the picture.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:49 am |
  327. Cameron

    I think that if it's something that you post on the Internet shouldn't be something that might hurt you. And it should be something you are proud of. I don't think you should put something that would hurt others too. And people shouldn't post things that have yours or someone else information.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:52 am |
  328. Tanner

    I think that it isnt the schools right to suspend her from something that isnt school related because that is her personal life and they shouldnt be able to punnish her from the cheerleading squad because of that, plus if someone wouldn't have ever sent in that picture then nobody would have ever found out. I also dont think it would have been that big of a deal if someone else was holding the bottle of beer and she wasnt drinking it.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:52 am |
  329. Jarren

    I think they should suspend the cheerleader because she posted the picture on face book with the beer bottle under her mouth. That shows the principal and the teachers that she could have drank the beer and could have used drugs.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:52 am |
  330. Anthony

    I think that girl should not be suspension. I know she didn't have a beer in her head.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:52 am |
  331. Brooke

    Your privacy online should be private. Its your life outside of school. I could see if you did something to another student also outside of school if it involved something that happened at school, but School Adminastrative need to focus more on things like Drugs and things that could kill others. Not pictures taken and put online.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:54 am |
  332. Jarren

    I think you decide what you should put on your face book because it doesn't hurt other people. It's your decision what you should put on there for the whole world to see. But it's illegal do drink under the age of 21 and that picture explains whether she drank the beer or not.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:56 am |
  333. Hannah

    i think the cheerleading thingy was wrong the parents had alot of evidence to back this problem up. but yes the school had the right to suspend her from cheerleading because ye the picture did look like she was drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:56 am |
  334. Catherine

    I think there is a line between what is appropriate and what's not. Students should be able to know these restrictions. Parents also should monitor they're activities online. If the students know how fast information and other things can transfer they would realize how sometimes things should not be downloaded on to the internet. Things can always be used in the future against those kids. In conclusion, the girl should know better.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:58 am |
  335. Amy

    I think it is kinda dangerous for us to post everything online.But I would like to choose some to be public that my friends will know what is going on around me recently...

    October 26, 2010 at 11:58 am |
  336. Hunter

    befor you put somthing online you should stop and think befor it gets posted and wonder what people would do or say.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:01 pm |

    These kinds of incidents always convince me even more why social networking sites are bad for someone's reputation

    October 26, 2010 at 12:03 pm |
  339. Jodi

    If I think a picture may make somebody else take it a different way it does not need to be online. I see where she thought it was okay because her parents were there and it was just her sisters wedding but you can't really tell if she is holding it or if her sister is in the picture; therefore she could have just lied and said that not to get in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:03 pm |
  340. -Sara :)

    When you post something online, you need to think to yourself if you would show that to someone you didn't even know in the first place. Always be careful that you don't effect other people with what you post too.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:04 pm |
  341. Scott

    The school should not just assume that the alcoholic beverage was her's. This is an obstruction of her rights as a student. The event occured outside of her school. She deserves to stay a cheerleader for the remainder of the season.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:08 pm |
  342. Destiny

    well if its not graphical pictures then i would put it online, plus that would be embarrassing to put something like that online and have people to look at that.. cause you'd get judged. so if is not nudity or pictures with drugs/alcohol then you could put it online, just be careful though. you never know what will happen, or who is looking at your page...

    October 26, 2010 at 12:10 pm |
  343. Dessy.

    well when you look at it, why would you even want to post inappropriate pictures online? its really immature, and obviously you know someone is gonna look at your page and tell someone else, then its probably going to get to a teacher. its common sense, and i think people should use it these days..

    October 26, 2010 at 12:13 pm |
  344. Shila

    I decide what to put online based on my own personal values. I personally believe that the situation right now with this girl is ridiculous because she wasn't representing her school...

    October 26, 2010 at 12:18 pm |
  345. Morgan

    I believe the student is in the wrong. She represented the school and was suspose to be a role model.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:21 pm |
  346. Luis

    i think that the school stuff just went to far, she does not deserved to be suspended if her family knows about what she is posting on facebook i thinks its fine..... Luis

    October 26, 2010 at 12:21 pm |
  347. Breanna

    Even tho she said she wasn't drinking she shouldn't have put the picture on facebook because it looks like she was drinking. It may be misleading but she shouldn't have done that.!

    October 26, 2010 at 12:22 pm |
  348. Keondra

    You should be able to put whatever you want because its your personal page and your life.

    Today on CNN Student News: pictures on face book

    I think that if a teachers looks at your face book they should not be allowed to punish you at school. What’s on your face book should not be judged at school. What if all the students got on their teachers face book and judged them would they get in trouble. If we get punished the teachers should too. They get special treatment we should too!!!!!!!!!!

    October 26, 2010 at 12:22 pm |
  350. Isabelle

    How do you decide what to put online...that they should not discriminate against other races and that they do not have bad words on them and that they are not offensive photo's.

    Even though the law does state, that they WE THE PEOPLE have freedom of speech, so the teachers should not say anything to us about what we post on face book or myspace, unless it is A. Discrimanating, B. showing [inappropriate] photos...

    October 26, 2010 at 12:24 pm |
  351. Kyrstin

    If there is any alcoholic drink in the picture you take, I wouldn't post it online, because people could take it in a wrong way, and say you had possession of alcohol.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:24 pm |
  352. Jordyn and Kim

    Common sense and you feel comfortable with your postings.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:24 pm |
  353. Steph

    i think that if the picture was zoomed out a little bit more to show that her sister was holding the bottle, she wouldn't be suspended and she would be in school right now.

    -Steph

  354. megan

    I think that who ever put that picture online obiously did not like her.I know that what you but online will haut you forever.I want to know though why did she take that bottle and Did she know about the supension.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:31 pm |
  355. -Shania

    I think kids should start thinking before they do certain things online because sometimes it could be very serious! I also thought that the school should have had the parents present of the student with the bottle because things could have been more straighten out than they are now!

    October 26, 2010 at 12:37 pm |
  356. Savannah

    I don't have a Facebook or a Myspace, but I still wouldn't post anything explicit. If I wouldn't show it to my mom, then I wouldn't post it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:38 pm |
  357. -Shania

    The way i know rather to put something online about someone else or not is to say to myself would i want someone putting this about me online ?

    October 26, 2010 at 12:40 pm |

    Just be careful what you post, think about who might see it and how they might take it.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:48 pm |
  359. Talea

    I think of two things when I post one that I don't post in the heat of the moment and that I don't post things I wouldn't want my parents to see

    October 26, 2010 at 12:48 pm |
  360. morgan

    i think what is okay to put online is what my parents tell me is okay because if they see a a picture onmy camera that they do not like then they delete it. So really she should have thought about it to and realize that could affect you in the future.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:48 pm |
  361. Shauni

    If you don't want someone to see it, don't post it. You never know who is going to see it.

  362. Mckinnon

    I think that it was not right to banne her from cheerleading they should of talk to the parents and then deside. But it was an outrage that they took her from the cheerleading squad.

    October 26, 2010 at 12:52 pm |

    there's a good chance that whatever they post could somehow become public. A teenager in Ohio recently found that out firsthand when a photo she appeared in led to her suspension from her high school's cheerleading squad. it should be up to her moom and dad.

    you really shouldn't put you personal info online because it dangerous and stupid use your common since thats what God gave it to you for

    in my opinion, what is okay to post online is something that won't hurt you or someone else. Kids have learned from a young age what may hurt someones feelings and they should do the same things while they're online. Kid's shouldn't post their or anyone else's information while online for that reason. Kid's should use their own judgement on what's inappropriate and if they think it may be at all they should be safe and not post it or they may get in a lot of trouIf you post something online it shouldn't affect school unless it actually shows you doing something wrong. She might have been holding the bottle but it can't be proven and she didn't drink it, is it a crime to hold it for a photo or be in a photo with some. Innocent until proven guilty. And it can't be proved!

    before i put a photo on my facebook page i ask an adult if it looks ok to post so i dont ruin my life from people teasing me about my picture but that was inapropriate to post because the school doesnt know if she was drinking it or not i think it was better to suspend her i dont even know if she was holding it when you showed the picture if it was a wait up you would have more evidence.

    I believe parents should check what their kids put online. If a Parent is ok with it being put on the internet then the school should have no say with it. There was a Cop at that Wedding and if something bad had happened then wouldn't he have said something? The school Had NO right to speak with this girl without her parents there to defend her.

    If your putting something online you should always remember that everyone in the world could get it.

    What i have to say about this. Is that it was very wrong of them to suspend her for something like that. I am a cheerleader and yes i have been suspended before. But they have NO proof that it was in her hand. It doesn't show her hand in that picture. Therefore they can not suspend her for that. It was very wrong on there part.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:03 pm |

    I think that you should be able to put anything online that doesn't show proof of you doing something that could get you in trouble.

    If you dont know if you should put a photo on a social network or not a question you should ask yourself is would i be okay if a person you are friends with was there when the picture was taken would you be okay with that. If not dont post the picture and if so then go ahead.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:03 pm |
  372. Aime

    I feel like it's your decision what you put online. You should know the risks about what could happen but it's not like someone would put something inappropriate on purpose. If you think it's okay, then you think it's okay. Even when you have parents that use the same "social networking" site.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm |
  373. Mackenzie

    I think it's wrong to post any pictures online that have any sort of alcohol in them. Also an easy way to stay out of that situation is to not go to a party where there's going to be drugs or alcohol.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm |
  374. Misty

    How I decide what's okay to put online, is I know not to put anything appropriate. Also my mom looks over my pictures, and if she doesn't think they are appropriate then I delete them off.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm |
  375. Ben

    I think that the best way to decide what you put online is to put yourself in other peoples shoes. What would you think of that picture or post if you were just looking at it. Or even if you hated the person who put that online what would do, would you try to make controversy about it to get back at them or just accept it. What you think you would do I would you is it to help you decide.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm |
  376. Even

    I think that that photo was ok because she wasn't probably holding the beer or she would have thought that she might have got kicked off the squad. But there is a limit like if she was holding the beer she shouldn't have done that for the same reason.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:05 pm |
  377. brendon

    I think that this is ridicules. If the mother allowed this photo to be on facebook than they should not kick her off the team. If they had a problem with the photo then they should of talked to her parents.

    It's okay to post stuff online, you just have to think before posting it.

    If your going to post things like photos online, youh shouldn't put up things that youh think might cause trouble for youh. But i think the girls school was wrong about what they did, because its clear that she wasn't drinking it. They should have undone her suspension for the misunderstanding and apoligized to her and her family

    October 26, 2010 at 1:06 pm |

    If I put anything personal on there, which is seldom, I make it so only friends of mine can see them. If I post pictures sometimes I make it so only family or friends can see it. You can choose who can look at what information. And you can also block people from your page. There is really no excuse on someone seeing something you didn't want them to.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:07 pm |
  382. Ryan

    what you put online really depends on how much you care about your image. theres no list of terms a picture needs to meet. its all your opinion.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:07 pm |
  383. Mady

    I think that people should only post pictures of themselves that would be uplifting to others. Pictures that you wouldn't want to see if you were someone else, shouldn't be posted.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:08 pm |
  384. Sarah

    Everybody has to be their own judge of what they put online. There is a lot more privacy options now like with facebook and myspace to make your page private, so only your friends can see it. I still think that even if it looks like you might be doing something wrong you shouldn't put it up. I always think of my family, I wouldn't want them to be disappointed in me, nobody should want that.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:08 pm |
  385. Christina

    I would decide that its appropriate, my parents would feel it's okay. And that my friends are okay with them being up if it has friends in it. Then I would feel that it would be okay for me to put the picture up on any social network.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:08 pm |
  386. Tiana

    What I think is okay to post online is anything that wont get you or anyone else in to trouble. I believe if you are putting a picture online and you have to stop an think about weather you will get in trouble or not then you most likely shouldn't put it on. But I also don't think it was fair to suspend that girl just because it was near her, if it was in her hand then yeah that would be a different story but she wasn't even touching it.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:08 pm |
  387. Wyatt

    Its hard to remember that you school has access to the things you post online. But anyone with a computer can access what you post. You have to be a little paranoid when you post something.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:09 pm |
  388. Destinee

    I decided what is bad to put online and what is good by personal opinion. If a certain picture might look like something is going on, I wouldn't post it, if everyone knew what the picture was about that would be different. I think that it's what you decide to put on, not someone's opinion, just yours.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:09 pm |
  389. Sean

    I think that the school should follow its rules. The drink did look like she was holding it, and even if her excuse was truthful, anyone can make an excuse.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:10 pm |
  390. Travis

    I'm very cautious of what I put online, whether it's a picture of me or information I post. I dont think people realize who could access the stuff people put on the internet. They should consider of what they put online, because you never know who's behind that computer screen.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:11 pm |
  391. Calvin

    I think it is inappropriate for the picture to be taken in that nature period. She admitted that she had beer in her hand to the school officials. Image is everything and this 16 yr old student who is a Cheerleader (Public Figure) is not representing herself, community, family, and school in a respectable manner. If mom really scanned the picturess before they were posted, she would of not allowed it to be posted, any good parent would.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:11 pm |
  392. Christinaa

    I think that if it even looks bad you shouldn't put it on there. You should know what is appropriate and what is not appropriate. You shouldn't put anything online that you know might get you in trouble with your school, parents, or anyone. Putting something bad online could always have consequences in the future. So always be careful because you never know who is watching what you do.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:11 pm |
  393. Jake

    I think that people should be more careful on what they put on facebook and what there privacy settings are, but people don't have the right to look at someones facebook, look threw probably all the pictures and tell on them because they found this one picture. I understand that she's underage and she is a cheerleader, but let the school find out for themselves, don't tell on the person. So what if someone is drinking underage, it is there business.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:12 pm |
  394. Kayleigh

    My class thinks Bree is lying. She was at a party where alchol was available and probably thought she could get away with it. School officials usually don't lie just to punish a cheerleader. We find it hard to believe that three adiministrators would lie just to get a cheerleader suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:12 pm |
  395. Gullette

    You should not put anything illegal or inappropriate on the internet because the school or police could find out and you would be in trouble. You should post appropriate photos, information, and videos and no bad things will happen to you.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:14 pm |
  396. Maxwell

    I think that what goes on facebook should not affect school. If it was on school grounds that she did that then yes she should be punished.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:15 pm |
  397. Herschel

    I totally agree on what the school did in this case it was very inappropriate.

  398. Shawn

    As a user of online services, I know how much privacy is an issue. In the end, only I can decide what to put on the internet and where it is shared and where it is protected. Many people don’t realize how important privacy. I can tell firsthand that I wouldn’t like someone looking at my information and spreading it.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:19 pm |
  399. KARA

    The term "cheerleader" is known all around the world, along with the fact that cheerleaders are supposed to be "upperclassman".We cheerleaders are highly respected and should fulfill our duties in doing the right thing and setting a good example for "younger eyes", even if it means not posting certain things on the internet, or etc. Think of it this way, if you wouldn't show it to your grandmother, or your 5 year old brother or sister, then don't post it to where the whole world can see it.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:20 pm |
  400. Jamison

    I decide what to put online by asking myself if I would feel comfortable saying my comment in front of a large group of students. Also I wouldn't say anything that would embarrass my family, friends, or myself.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:21 pm |
  401. Connor

    I dont think it is right for a kid to get suspended for having a picture of them with some type of drug in the picture. What if there parent put it on there social page with out asking them. How would the school know that??

    October 26, 2010 at 1:22 pm |

    I wouldn't say anything that would disgrace my Father God in heaven.

  404. Morgan

    she shouldnt be introuble for something that was done outside of school, they shouldnt suspend her because it doesnt show if she has ahold of the bottle or if it is the person beside her.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:24 pm |
  405. Trisha

    i think that she shouldnt of put the picture online if i looked like she was drinking even if she wasnt, my opinion about this is that you shouldnt put pictures up on the internet that do not need to be seen.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:24 pm |
  406. Reece

    I think that it is wrong for the high school to suspend her because the picture didn't actually show her drinking the alcohol or under the influence. Plus on top of all her parents were at teh wedding along with a deputy sheriff. It would have been different if she was actually drinking...

    October 26, 2010 at 1:25 pm |
  407. Brie

    When you put something online it should look okay, feel okay to you and to other people, and something that doesnt involve drugs or other bad stuff.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:25 pm |
  408. MacKenzii

    What i put online is stuff that can't harm me or others. My parents see every pic. i put on.

  409. Bethany

    It is up to your parents what they say you can put online. I think that parents should be in control over what thier children put online. The school never should have subspended her just because they got an email with a note, and it LOOKED like she was holding the bottel. =]

    October 26, 2010 at 1:26 pm |
  410. Drew

    I agree that I don't expect privacy, but this went out of hand. I believe you can't always prove what's online and you can't interpret it correctly. Be careful what you post on the internet. It can go anywhere.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:27 pm |
  411. Daphne

    You are responsible for what you put on line, so don't put anything on if you can't handle the consequences. The key word is responsible. In this story the mom and the junior in highschool were not taking responsiblity for their actions, but looking to blame; that's the second mistake. The first was playing with an impression. Clearly the picture was taken to give the impression she was drinking and that is just what she got. Now she wants to give the impression she and her mom are upstanding moral people. Well, then lets see some pictures of that which would be a nice change from the junk put on line now.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:27 pm |
  412. Zacch

    I think that you decide what you put online is up to yourself or your parents. No one should tell you that what you put online can not be there.

  419. Sydnee

    Well i think that they shouldnt get in trouble for that cuase you can tell that she wasnt drinking and i think that if it is going to far like something worse than that then you shouldnt do that but if it isnt or maybe your parents check it if your parents think its ok then thats what they think is approiriate!

    October 26, 2010 at 1:31 pm |
  420. Taylor

    I think the that the school should go find proof that the girl was actually drinking the alcohol before the suspend her. She shouldn't have been suspended. I think if her parents saw the picture and was fine with it, then why shouldn't the school be? You still need to be careful about what you put online, it will NEVER go away!

    October 26, 2010 at 1:38 pm |
  421. duncan

    October 26, 2010 at 1:41 pm |
  422. Mariah

    My opinion is that the school shouldnt suspension her because there was a police officer there to make sure there was no underage drinking. the school should concider that she was at a wedding and the person next to her was holding a drink not her.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:41 pm |

  425. Arkeith

    I think you shouldn't put any Pictures On Facebook With You Doing any illegal Activity but it would be okay too put pictures up with your family and stuff !

    October 26, 2010 at 1:43 pm |
  426. Nakia

    I think you should ask your self what reaction would i get from this picture and then put it up or not. If that doesn't work then ask your parents if its appropiate.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:44 pm |
  427. Avery

    Sense they did not know if she was drinking it or not they should not get in to it. It was out of school it was on their property and they should not inspect that she was drinking. Just like they said the police were there and they would not let her drink. So I think that just because it was a party they should not think that she was the one drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:46 pm |
  428. Chantelle

    I think people should make sure that the pictures they post cannot send the wrong message, and it's obvious what they're doing in it.

  429. Nakia

    I think you should ask yourself what reaction would i get from this picture and then put the picture up if it would be a good reaction, or ask your parents if it's appropiate

    October 26, 2010 at 1:47 pm |
  430. Brittany

    The girl has to take full responsibility for how it looks on the internet. No one knows that she wasn't drinking at the wedding, yet the picure looks like she was.
    She is representing her school, and it looks bad.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:47 pm |
  431. Mark

    I think that the school had a good reson to suspend the student for what the picture shows but if i were the person makeing the disions i would ask the officer that was there or beleve the parrent.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:49 pm |
  432. Ryan

    I think don't put on photos that have any thing harmful or illegal while you are in the photo.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:54 pm |
  433. Christie

    What you put online is for all to see. If there is anyone who you do not want to see a conversation, pictures, etc. don't put them online!!! I've heard of people putting pictures online when they were young and not getting accepted into collages for it! Just be careful what you put online because it might not just affect you.

    October 26, 2010 at 1:54 pm |
  434. Hailey

    i think thats its unfair when all they saw was a picture i think they shouldve look into it more and see what was going on before they made a decision to suspend her.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:05 pm |
  439. EJ

    i think the principal made a mistake and should have brought the parents up to school to try and explain what really happened. I hope the daughter got to state her opinion.

  441. Tyler

    It very imature of the school to jump to conclusions and looked into
    it more. This school is trying to "nit pick" because they have nothing else to do they need to focuse less on her pictures and more on her education

    October 26, 2010 at 2:08 pm |
  442. Carlos

    not to put somthing online that you dont want people to see and the school shouldent have suspended her they should have tald to her parents about it before they did anything

    October 26, 2010 at 2:09 pm |
  443. Jacob

    You should always be careful what you put online, especially pictures. You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:09 pm |
  444. Mercedes

    I don't think she should be suspended because since for one she didn't hold it and there was an officer at the party so i don't think the officer would allow it to happen i think they should bring the sister and the parents into the office to tell the story.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:10 pm |
  445. Randy

    This is a very unfortunate situation for the young lady in Ohio. I feel that the administrators should have called the young lady and the parents into the office and gave her a chance to remove the picture. However, people should consider the old cliche' "When in Doubt, Don't" about taking pictures that could be posted online.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:11 pm |
  446. Shae'Mailah

    Why would she put a picture like that? As a cheerleader, she is representing her school, her town, and her family. Underage drinking is something that is completely unacceptable. She deserved more punishment, like getting kicked out of school.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:11 pm |
  447. jose

    that is not right what the school did they should have asked before blaming and suspending

    October 26, 2010 at 2:13 pm |

  449. Kobe

    I think what's ok to put online is up to you it's your decision and most people make the good decision about not putting bad things on just regular things that you would do.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:14 pm |
  450. Keaton

    This is totally Crazy How could they do that if they say that the picture was of the other persons alchohal. If that was me i would be very mad at the school.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:15 pm |
  451. Keegan

    I think that the school should have investigated more before suspending her. I believe the girls mother because she knows what was going on because she was there and they also had the police officer at the wedding to keep it under control.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:16 pm |
  452. Libbey

    i think that i was stupid for her or her mom to put that picture online. becasue i think is that is drawing the wrong kind of attention and if you put something on facebook or my space dont think that nobody will see it . thats what i think about her putting the picture online.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:17 pm |
  453. Sarah

    My advice would be to not put anything online that you wouldn't want someone to read/see.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:17 pm |
  454. samantha

    I think if you wouldn't want a teacher, or the whole world to see, you shouldn't post it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:17 pm |
  455. Hannah

    I think if a picure is put online where someone has to give an explanation for it to be apropriate it shouldn't be onlie. When i put pictures on facebook i always consider what would someone think if they saw this and would my grandma be ok with this? 😉

    October 26, 2010 at 2:18 pm |
  456. Katie

    I think this would be the hardest descision... what you may think is funny and completly appropriate someone may find offending. The best way to decside this is if you are posting pictures of you and friends, ask the friend if it is alright. Also ask parents and school faculty members if you are unsure if a certain photo will get you in trouble.

    I think how you decide whats ok to put online is up to you. But you should go over the picture or whatever you are putting online and make sure it does'nt look misleading, and if it looks misleading don't put it up especially on like facebook or myspace.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:19 pm |
  458. Ayla

    How you decide what to put on the web is based on how embarassing it really is. I think the girl could have thought about how it really looked.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:19 pm |
  459. jordan

    I think that she was not drinking in the picture, it was just taken at an angle that made it look like the drank was next to her mouth.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:20 pm |
  460. ustin

    i think that the girl should nit be suspended from school there is not enough proof it is hers.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:20 pm |
  461. Meghan

    I think its really stupid to suspend someone who used a picture that envolved a beer bottle that WAS NOT hers...The picture was probably cropped for size...I don`t see how you can suspend someone because of a facebook picture..I`m not saying I would put a picture of myself with a beer bottle but the point is that she put that picture up on her facebook of her sister`s wedding...the school shouldn`t have got involved and the fact that they did is VARY stupid..I don`t know who sent the school the picture but that was wrong,it was her privet matter and that person and the school shouldn`t have seen it...it was a wedding for her sister, I see nothing wrong with it.......

  462. Amariah

    It's wrong to put something on the computer that can get you in trouble and that can cause you to get in trouble by the police or any other person.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:21 pm |
  463. Preston

    I think this is a good example of why you should not put these kind of photos on Facebook,Twitter,Myspace, ect. I also think that the school needs to look more into the photo. It appeared that she was holding the bottle but from our perspective it looked like the friend was!

    October 26, 2010 at 2:21 pm |
  464. Hanna

    If there's something I don't want to people to see I won't put it on facebook. I actually don't have any pictures on facebook right now. I don't know if I will put my pictures on facebook anymore because of this story. I think that it's really unfair that they suspended her from the team. It seems like they didn't hear her or her parents out.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:21 pm |
  465. Autumn

    I think you should check your picture or your writing to see if it's inappropriate or something you might get in trouble for.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:22 pm |
  466. Jessica

    What i put on line all ways go through my mom. I have her go through my camera every weekend to see which ones i can put online and if she dosent like them well they get deleted.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:22 pm |
  467. Yehuda

    It's not good to act like you are doing something inappropriate, that why there was a consequence.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:23 pm |
  468. Shelby

    I decide which photos I put online by deciding if they are not really personal and if they don't look like I'm doing anything innopropriate. I know that everyone can see my photos and I don't want to put any online if it could get me in a lot of trouble or if I could loose my personality.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:23 pm |
  469. Kaitlyn

    I decide what I put online by the context of the photo, if it is something that I have questions about then I won't put it up or I may even say that this is just a joke.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:23 pm |
  470. Makala

    I think that it was wrong for her to get in trouble because if she said it was the other person's bottle they should believe her. I think you should also be careful what you put online that is inappropriate and can get you in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:24 pm |
  471. Jonas

    I really think the school should cut her some slack because she claims she isn't holding the drink. Plus it's none of their buisness anyway.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:24 pm |
  472. Jeral

    One way you can pick things to put on the wrbsite is to ask if the picture is worth putting on facebook. Be wise about what you put on your page.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:25 pm |
  473. Brooke

    Thats so stupid

    October 26, 2010 at 2:26 pm |
  474. Elenia

    how i decied to wats ok online is by asking my self if this apropriet or not or i simply ask for a parent or friend aproval.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:27 pm |
  475. Cris

    If you think with a open mind then you can see why the picture was caught as her drinking the beer when she wasn't, but the picture has no proof to show that she didn't have any beer. Also If I was her then I wouldn't have put the photo up at all because of how miss leading it is. Plus the parents should of said to take the picture off of facebook and anywhere else she put it on. So that someone doesn't miss take it for something else.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:29 pm |
  476. Jordan

    She was not on school grounds there was a police officer at the wedding, I dont think she didnt do anything wrong because if she did the officer would probably stop it.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:31 pm |
  477. jonathan

    I would always check what i put online even though these girls were innocent you should always be carefull what you put online.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:31 pm |
  478. Rachel

    I think that if you put something online that is should not have any thing that would be misunderstood.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:31 pm |
  479. MIA

    I think that it is crazy that the school staff is worried about what she is doing at her sisters wedding. That is her buisness and not theirs, even though she has a beer glass held by her mouth that does not mean it was hers. I personally think that is stupid she got suspended from the cheerleading squad.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:32 pm |
  480. Drew

    I think you always have to be careful on what you put on your Facebook. I also think apropriate things should only be posted because alot of people have facebook and anyone could look at it.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:33 pm |
  481. Courtnei

    It is none of school's business. All she was doing is just having fun. She was not within school boundaries, so she shouldn't get trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:34 pm |
  482. tabitha

    really it's pretty easy.don't post anything private or something that'll get in public.you don't know who's out there to find out about you and spread rumors.so choose carefully what you put online.if you wouldn't do it in reality don't do it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:34 pm |
  483. Mindy

    If people you don't know can see your information (i.e. facebook), you should not put personal things you don't want shared. At anytime, you should not put pictures that degrade yourself. If you want others to respect you, you must respect yourself. As far as the cheerleader goes, a guardian should have been present when the school interviewed her about the picture.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:35 pm |
  484. Taylor

    i think people shouldn't put that stuff on ther even though it is at a wedding but you can get in real trouble for doing that and that especially if the principal or the teacher saw it and you are in sports and you get kicked off the team and get suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:35 pm |
  485. Kira

    I think that it was hers because if it was her sisters then the girl would have had her drink by her sisters face. Also I think she put it on facebook to show how cool she thought she was cause she got one. And to get attention

    October 26, 2010 at 2:35 pm |
  486. Austyn

    They should look more into what actually was in the picture. If she is in possession of alcohol then she should get in trouble because of the signed contract.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:35 pm |
  487. Candice

    I don't think it was right for her to get kicked off the cheerleading squad. but it was still wrong for her to put on facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm |
  488. Grace

    I think they should let her back on the cheerleading squad because she probably didn't drink the beer and not suspend her.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm |
  489. Erica

    She shouldn't have got sespended from cheerleading. It was just a picture, its not like she was drinking it. It was her sisters beer not hers. Do you really think she would disobey her moms rules? Wouldn't someone have seen her drinking the beer?

    October 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm |
  490. tayler

    they had no right talking to her about that when her parents werent and they kicked her the team for no reason

    October 26, 2010 at 2:38 pm |
  491. Brandon

    I think that if you actually zoomed out and looked at the photo you would see that the other person ( I think her mom or Sister) is holding the bottle and that she is not. It was probably sent to the school by sombody who envies her or the photo could have been slightly edited. That is not a good enoucg reason to suspend her. In a court of law there would need to be more evidence. Why not in a school ruling. They diden't even consult her parents!

    October 26, 2010 at 2:38 pm |
  492. Ryan

    I dont think that is right because it happened off school grounds and had nothing to do with the school.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm |
  493. Kendrick

    I think she should not be suspended from the cheer squad. Her friend was holding the beer, not her. I also think the school administrator's should not be snooping through her facebook page either.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:51 pm |
  494. Alejandro

    The true problem is that you're not always in control of the pictures uploaded to social networking sites. Anyone could take a picture place it on facebook, so maybe students shouldn't do things they would be worried about others knowing about.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:52 pm |
  495. Darnell

    Facebook pages are not school's business. They don't know if she is holding the beer. It could've been rootbeer!

    October 26, 2010 at 2:54 pm |
  496. Julie

    They should make an exception for weddings because they are a cultural event in our society . Its like having a bit of wine at a religious ceremony or at a church, mosque or temple.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:56 pm |
  497. Devin

    By putting a picture on Facebook, you are allowing the entire world to see your photos. She knew that before she posted the picture. I doubt she'll put inappropriate pictures on the site anymore.

    October 26, 2010 at 2:57 pm |
  498. Brianna

    I think that she wasnt holding the beer and i dont think she should have got suspeneded from the cheere squad or school.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm |
  499. Ricky

    I would see it was age appropriate for my friends on my social network or I would try to set that picture on private for only my friends could see.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  500. Allison

    I honestly think that if there was a sheriff at the wedding he would of seen the girl drink, but also the picture did look like she was holding the beer so I see both sides of the story.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:01 pm |
  501. Kodie

    When i personally post picture I make sure there is nothing in my pictures that will or could get me in trouble. You should be very careful when posting pictures.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:02 pm |
  502. Mykala

    I don't really think it's right to suspend her from school and the cheer squad that's she been doing most of her life. But then again, why post a picture on Facebook or any social network having a beer or anything else in the picture that everybody else can see. I wouldn't post stuff on any social network that's not appropriate or where everybody else can see and get you in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:02 pm |
  503. Hanna

    I dont think she should have gotten suspended because it really doest have any thing to do with cheerleading....If I were her parents I would sue the school! 😦

    October 26, 2010 at 3:03 pm |
  504. Morgan

    I believe that the school should not be able to tell you what you can and can not post online. But you should also not be posting anything online that has anything to do with drugs or any inappropriate language.

    Well um biii have a good day....

    October 26, 2010 at 3:03 pm |
  505. Kaylie

    I think that was stupid!! If she wasn't drinking or even holding the beer then she shouldn't of gotten suspended. Her parents should sue because they didn't she was being questioned about the incident.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:04 pm |
  506. Dalton

    I think it is veruy unfair of the school to jump to conclusion! They should talk to the deputy at the wedding and see if she was actually the one who was holding the alcoholic beverage.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:04 pm |
  507. Ali

    I think everyone should be more careful of what they put online to prevent these things.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:05 pm |
  508. Haleigh

    ok this is wrong her friend was holding the bottle not her! the school should have no right to just say 'your suspended from the cheer squad because your friends holding a beer bottle' does that even make sense i dont think so and she looks like a nice person. the school doesnt need to be looking at students facebook pages anyway that would be considered a little ummmmmmm weird i guess is the word

    October 26, 2010 at 3:06 pm |
  509. Cole

    I think it was unfair to suspend her because it had nothing to do with school. the school obviously thinks that their students facbook accounts are more important than the students education. they were just having fun at a memorable occation...but then again i wouldnt put a picture like that online.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:07 pm |
  510. Jordan

    Just see how it could affect you later in your life

    October 26, 2010 at 3:07 pm |
  511. Zach

    the only person that decides what to put on the internet is you. choose wisely and if it looks like your doing something bad, dont post it.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:08 pm |
  512. Ashtonn

    I think that if you are to put anything on facebook, that the website should have some exceptions. You should only be able to put on pictures that are actually good for others to see. If you dont want others seeing it DON'T PUT IT ON THE WEBSIGHT!!!!!!!! No inapropriate pictures

    October 26, 2010 at 3:10 pm |
  513. BOBBY

    She has no right to be suspended from the cheerleading squad because she wasnt even drinking the beer. She doesnt look like the type of person who would disobey her parents rules anyway.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:13 pm |
  514. Kate

    Do not post anything online that could be taken out of context or that could have any negative attachment to it. Do not put anything that could backfire on yourself or anyone else.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:15 pm |
  515. Hayley

    =( (shakes head in dismay) people people people focus more on her education not her pictures

    October 26, 2010 at 3:15 pm |
  516. Megan

    i think you should always just let your parents look at the photos before you put them online because like the girl in the vidoe you could get suspended from school or any school type team you are on. to me this is my personal opion i think if you arnt sure it is a good idea dont post any picture online like facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:16 pm |
  517. Hadlie

    I do have to say that it was not a smart move for here to have a beer in her hand if she did but i hope she gets back on the squad some time. 🙂

    October 26, 2010 at 3:17 pm |
  518. Chasitie

    What to put on your facebook should depend on your parents not your school, and if your school has questions they can talk to your parents about their misuderstanding.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:19 pm |
  519. Madison

    I think that since the event, and the taking of the photo did not happen on school grounds, and that facebook should not be related to student suspensions of any kind, that She should be able to cheer. It's none of the school's buisness, and also, the school's officials should talk to the sister, who was holding the beer, to comment on the situation. Another point would be that there could have been a student, seeking revenge on Bree, that could have told school officials about the picture, and getting her suspended from cheering in the final two games.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:20 pm |
  520. Madeeha

    Anything that you wouldn't say or show to your principal or parent, but i don't think she should be suspended because the school has no proof since you can't see her arms. Also, if there were police at the wedding obviously she couldn't have.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:21 pm |
  521. Heather

    It doesn't matter if the beer was hers or not, the picture is clearly questionable and should not have been posted on facebook. When you are in extra curricular activities you are held to a higher standard!

    October 26, 2010 at 3:22 pm |
  522. Jacob

    I think she is lying and was drinking she just didnt want to amit it.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:26 pm |
  523. Sierra

    Honestly i think it was wrong for the school to suspend her that is her privacy not the schools. And if she did she isnt breaking the law she was with her parents.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:28 pm |
  524. Abbi

    It wasnt the schools responsibility, becasuse she wasnt at a school evert. So It wouldnt matter. Her friend was wrong for sending it to the school. She shouldnt of been suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:28 pm |
  525. Tyler

    what i put on my facebook is that i put on anything that my mom doesn't ground me on.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:33 pm |
  526. annabelle

    I think that if she admited that she had a beer in her hand at one point, then I think the school administrators have a point. But they don't have all the proof. The mom said there was an officer at the wedding, contact this officer and get proof.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:34 pm |
  527. Ashley

    I dont think it was fair to suspend her. Someone was obviously trying to frame her or at least getting in trouble. Blackmailing isnt a fair thing and the school had no right to do that. I would take her word for it. Pictures can be misleading and they can be posed. So I say it wasn't fair of them to jump to conclusions. We have rights as students and we sould get a fair chance.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:35 pm |
  528. Ashley

    I think it is up to the person to choose what is roght. Its their choice but in this case she didnt put it up and so she probly thought it was wrong and the photo could have been staged.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:36 pm |
  529. Laura

    I think that there is a fine line between what is okay and what is not. In the picture, it looks like she is holding the bottle, and even if she wasn't it was a good move to post it. The school had every right to take her off the team because it is one of their rules. My rules are if you wouldn't show it to your principal or a teacher, you probobly shouldn't put it on the web.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:37 pm |
  530. Elle

    There is no proof that wasn't her holding the beer. I'm sure it wasn't, but truth be told their was no need to have it in the picture.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:37 pm |
  531. Kody

    I don't think the school should have punished her without fully investigating the situation. If the school would have talked to her parents first. All the fact would have been known before she was punished unfairly.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:38 pm |
  532. Abigail

    It all depends on what you think is right and ok because we all believe in different things and look at things a different way than anybody else.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:41 pm |
  533. Katrina

    I think that the picture should have been streched out so they can see the friend holding the beer. I think nothing is safe to put on facebook cause you could get into serious troulble thats why I am not on facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:41 pm |
  534. Zach

    "I think she should have been more cautious about what she posted its there forever."

    October 26, 2010 at 3:41 pm |
  535. Andrew

    I think that the school has all rights to punish her, her mom who looked at all the pictures should have seen what that looked like

    October 26, 2010 at 3:42 pm |
  536. jennifer

    she shouldn't post the picture anyway

    October 26, 2010 at 3:42 pm |
  537. makayla

    i let my parents look at it first and then they let me put it on. but if you didnt ask your parents its your choice to put something on it because it is you repatation.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:42 pm |
  538. Candi

    You decide what is ok to put online but looking carefully and asking others if they think it could be easily misread.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:43 pm |
  539. Danika

    I think that the school has all the right to suspend her. it looked like she was holding it and they cant twist the rules for one person. At least it ws only two games the she didmt get to cheer in.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:43 pm |
  540. Riley

    People usually don't decide they just put pictures on thinking nobody will think that they are doing something wrong, i have done it plenty of times.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:44 pm |
  541. Gavin

    I think art is an explosion over coming the explosian thats what u decide.long story short they should have never kicked her out without knowing the full background of detail.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:45 pm |
  542. Tyler

    What I put one my Facebook page is what would not hurt my friends or family. Also I put on my facebook is what I think is okay for my age group. Also I put my page on privet so only my friends can see what I post.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:46 pm |
  543. Audre

    I think a good way to know if it shouldnt be online is to ask yourself if your grandparents or parents would not have a problem with it. If you are even in between you probobly shouldn't put it online. Also remember, You can take it offline too.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:47 pm |
  544. Garrett

    I can't believe she got suspended for that! She, and her parents both said it wasn't her beer so why did she get suspended? I would just tell her to take the picture off, i wouldn't go and suspend her!

    October 26, 2010 at 3:48 pm |
  545. Brook

    I think you should check your photos very carefully before posting them on facebook because you never know who is looking at your photos!

    October 26, 2010 at 3:48 pm |
  546. chris

    if i was that girl i would of posted it as private and set my account so nobody would be able to see it.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:49 pm |
  547. Tierce

    The family gave the proof that she wasnt holding so why is she still suspended from cheerleading? So the school needs to lay off and admit they were wrong and put her back on the cheerleading squad.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:50 pm |
  548. Laike

    To know what to put online just think about the picture at someone elses point of view. Even if you know that you weren't holding the beer like in the picture no one else knows that.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:50 pm |
  549. spanky

    they should have listened to what she said instead of just over reacting to something. it did look like she was holding it but i have seen many teachers with bad pictures on theirs also

    October 26, 2010 at 3:51 pm |
  550. Brooke

    I don't think that it was right but i can understand where they were coming from. Sometimes things like this get posted and don't get people punished when they really were doing it.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:52 pm |
  551. andrizay

    Personally, when choosing what to put online I think people should think first, then publish.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:52 pm |
  553. Michael

    I don't think the school should have suspended her because it wasn't at a school event. They have no proof that she was holding the beer because you couldn't see the girls hands. For all that anybody knows it could have been the girl next to her holding the beer.

    October 26, 2010 at 3:54 pm |
  554. Dominic

    I think it was wrong for the school to suspend her, because the school has no proof that she was holding the drink. Plus it was wrong for her friend to send the pic to the school. If that was my friend who sent the picture i would of been extremely upset!!

    October 26, 2010 at 3:55 pm |
  555. Taylor

    I think the school first off should NOT be looking at a student's profile it is an invasion of their outside life. Also She should have not posted the picture if it did look like she was the one drinking. She should not be suspended from it though just because of what it looked like to the school....

    if you know what you put on is going to harm you in any way you should not put in on.

    i think that there is no need for the beer to be in the picture anyway but maybe this will just be a lesson learned to the girl and make sure she doesnt do it again!

    Anything that you don't say or do in front of your parents, you shouldn't do online. I don't think that she should have put it online. If I were her, I wouldn't have put it online.

  559. Alice

    I've put things online before that are hurtful to others and I know the consequences. It hurts you, too, in the long run. If what you're posting could by any chance hurt someone else's feelings or the way people think of you, DON'T POST IT!

    October 26, 2010 at 4:00 pm |
  560. Beatrice

    i think that you should never put a picture on the internet with any kind of beer or drug knowing that someone could say something or do something that could turn the picture into something its not.

    I was a cheerleading coach for several years and I am now teaching and starting a career as a principal. I tell me students repeated what you put on face book or MySpace or any other online source is open to the public. My cheerleaders and their parents signed a character contract. As leaders I expect my students to carry themselves with integrity. That means DON'T POST IT! I will and I must hold all my students accountable for their actions on and off the field. I have dismissed girls in previous years for the same or similar offense. I felt bad and I feel bad for this young lady but we must hold our student leaders to higher standards. Lead by example, if the world can’t see it then perhaps you shouldn’t be doing it.

    She shouldn`t have posted that on line. If she did she should of had proof, that she wasn`t holding it.

    i think that the school should not have been going through her facebook that stuff should just be between her and who ever she wants to share it with not the school.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:08 pm |
  564. Cameron

    Ok, with this example, it's kind of hard to tell.... Because it does kind of look like she's drinking that, I don't think that she should have put that on Facebook. The person who took the picture(Or even the girl herself) Could've easily just taken another picture, but included the other girls hand in it. I'm not saying that anyone was wrong or right, but honestly, There needs to be some level of maturity at age 16.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:08 pm |
  565. matt

    I think it is dumb that the school does that to her when she wasn't doing it at school and they can't see if it is hers. If they did have a deputy on duty im sure he would have saw

    I think the school staff is over reacting...because if the parents saw the picture being taken and the police were there...you'd think they'd give you the benefit of the doubt...

  568. Derek

    I believe the school took the picture too seriously. They didn't even have her parents. I think this punishment should not be active. The school board should provide proof that this girl really drank alcohol instead of thinking that she did and not believing her parents.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:10 pm |
  569. Mason

    I think this event is just a waste of time. I mean its there Facebook page and account they should have the right to post whatever they want.

  570. christie

    i think some people need to watch what they do at parties and what pictures they are going to take if thy are going to be put on line but also people need to watch what pictures and they put on line for everyone to see

    October 26, 2010 at 4:11 pm |
  571. Bella

    I don't see why she put that beer under her lips?But wheather she did it or no.She now knows that she'll won't send any pictures like that if she wants to keep her cheerleader squad.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:12 pm |
  572. Derek

    The school board went way overboard. I mean, there was a police officer there at the wedding. The school didn't have the right to suspend her for what they think she did.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:13 pm |
  573. Layla

    Don't ever put anything online that you wouldn't show your grandparents. And when it comes to alcohol, it's NOT FUNNY!!!

  574. kira

    I believe that there is proper pictures to put on Face Book and none proper pictures. I think she was being honest when she said that it wasn't her that was holding the beer. I don't think that they should have kicked her off the cheer leading squad for it.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm |
  575. Megan

    I agree with the school, they are trying to keep their students safe and to prevent incidents from happening. It could have been preventable, the teenager could just have asked nicely whoever put the photo on Facebook, to let her look at them first. Having an alcoholic drink on a worldwide website could urge students to make the wrong decision. I don't think it's the teenager's fault, but she could have prevented it.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm |

    You just need to remember that whatever you put on the internet will be seen and noticed. Put only things that will be okay with other people and yourself on the internet. Be respectful and remember other peoples privacy.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:16 pm |
  579. Audrie

    I think you should let your parents see the photos before there put online, and you should also put pictures on facebook or anything that are good for others to see.

  580. Shawn

    People should be aware of the consequences of posting items such as: pictures, post, etc. If you dont want negative feedback then don't post it. In addition, i also feel that what people do on there free time is not important to others, so why pretend it is and spread it to people.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:17 pm |
  581. Jacob

    They are just making a big deal over nothing. Besides why would the school be looking through some ones personal stuff.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:18 pm |
  582. Mary Alice

    One time, I posted something mean about my friend without intending it to be hurtful and I've definitely learned my lessen. I don't want anybody to make the same mistake I did, so don't ever post anything that can be taken the wrong way and think about it before pushing the "share" button!

    October 26, 2010 at 4:18 pm |
  583. Michaela

    I honestly think that the girl got what she deserved. I would tell her to use common sense, but apparently it's not that common anymore!

  584. David

    I say your allowed to put anything you want on there as long as you know that anyone can see it.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:21 pm |
  585. Briana

    People should be very careful about what they post online because you never know who will see what you post. Colleges, jobs, and many other people can see the pictures or post on a social network page. There really isn't any privacy online, no matter what you set your privacy setting to.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:24 pm |
  586. Kenda

    Why did she put pictures like that? Is she trying to be cool? Well if she does that let me tell you that's not how you become cool. I have been mean to people at my school and I would do some dumb stuff. And later on people didn't like that. I lost my friends, my family got after me. And I felt like a loser. It was all, because I made up a lie that I was smoking, and pretending that I was drinking too. Please don't choose a bad habit.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:24 pm |
  587. Liz

    I think that we need to be very careful what we post online because pretty much anyone can see it.

    I realy dont think it matters unless you are doing somthing ileagal.
    If you are puting stuff on your facebook that is ileagal then i think there is somthing messed up with you!

    why does the school care about what she's doing out side of school. and wheres the proof of her holding the beer?

    October 26, 2010 at 4:27 pm |
  590. ethan

    I thick they should have even have took the picture in the first place and you should always check the picture to see if there is any thing that against the school rules.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:28 pm |
  591. Benjamin

    Rule number 1 about facebook: anyone who has access to the web can go on facebook and see what you put on there. rule number 2: you should never post ANYTHING on facebook that could hurt you or anyone esle in any way. I'm not saying she was holding the beer, I wasn't there, and there was a police officer there would he have seen it done something? The school should not have confornted her without her parents, and there is no eviedence she was even HOLDING the beer. Why would she? The policeman would have seen her! How could someone have taken that picture without the policeman seeing it? Come on people lets think logicly here!

    October 26, 2010 at 4:28 pm |
  592. Justin

    i dont think thats fare thay should question the girl next to her because what if the girl wasent even holding the botlle and the girl was just holding it to her mouth

    October 26, 2010 at 4:32 pm |
  593. Tizz

    She still shouldn't have the beer in her hands even if it wasn't hers. It's just like how at parties where people are drinking and you're not, you still will get in trouble if you're with that group. (Not saying who she was with is bad). Keeping pictures with things like that on should just stay off the internet.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:34 pm |
  594. Richard

    Actually this is quite a easy question since most everything online is public all you have to do is ask yourself weather you would was your parents to see it or your current or future employer but once you put something online it can be hard/impossible to take back so think carefully.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:35 pm |
  595. Adrianaaa

    i Believe theres No right or wrong thing to be put online, if you dont want people to see it then dont put it online, as simple as that .

    October 26, 2010 at 4:37 pm |
  596. Rocky

    I don't understand why anyone (in this case, the school) are upset about something online when it's not affecting them. Even if she did just touch a beer bottle it doesn't mean she's actually bringing beer to school or game practice. My point being, anything is okay to put online; some people may not like some photo or video posted, but that's their own problem.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:38 pm |
  597. brennen

    When i put something online I check and she what it is first. I don't want to put something that could put me in jail or get people to make fun of me. Its a good thing to check what you post online.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:42 pm |
  598. Towanda

    I decide if its an okay post by thinking what would my mom say if she saw this. Clearly if I could get in trouble for it, then I would not put it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:43 pm |
  599. Ethan

    The school, in my opinion, should have done some background check before they pointed fingers. They should have also talked to the parents about this before the school talked to the child. This is the school's fault, not the kid's problem. 🙂

    October 26, 2010 at 4:51 pm |
  600. Ashlyn

    The internet is a dangerous place. putting on the wrong imformation could really hurt you. I try to never give out anything more then a nickname. Just to stay on the safe side!

    October 26, 2010 at 4:52 pm |
  601. Stanton

    How do you decide what's okay to put online?
    How i decide to put online is:
    1. Is it appropriate?
    2. Wil it build better friendships?
    3. Is it benificial to all concerned?
    That is how i decide what to put online.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:52 pm |
  602. Ben

    i would believe the parents that she was not drinking the beer and the school should have let her keep cheerleading

    October 26, 2010 at 4:53 pm |
  603. Cindy

    There is no proof that she was drinking beer. There were witnesses like her mom and that lady, and what if she was just holding the beer for someone? I don't think that she really needed to be suspended, since there's no proof.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:55 pm |
  604. Azim

    I would not put bad pictures or messages online. In the teenager's case, i don't believe that it is fair to suspend a student for something done outside of school. I have heard of people who get suspended just for having a facebook. We should have our civil rights.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:55 pm |
  605. Richie

    I think the school is invading her privacy. They dont even have proof. It wasn't even done in school. Well, i guess she should be more careful about what she posts on Facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:56 pm |
  606. kaitlyn

    i think privacy is a big thing.I say if you want it private don't put it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:57 pm |

    i think the school should be dealing with things that happened at school not outside of it

    October 26, 2010 at 4:59 pm |
  608. Richie

    I don't put much pictures of me online, but when i do i keep it safe: No alchlohol, nude, or craziness.

    October 26, 2010 at 4:59 pm |
  609. Kori

    I think that what you do outside of school, in your personal life, is your business. It had nothing to do with school or the cheerleading squad, so she shouldn't have been suspended.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:02 pm |
  610. kaitlyn

    i say to myself will this put me in any danger? does this have any private information ?and finally i ask my mom. that's how i decide whether or not to put things online. If my mom says no even if it does not put me in any danger or give information i still cant put it online! 😀

    October 26, 2010 at 5:02 pm |
  611. Tyler

    I think that you should only put photos online if you know that you are not going to be acused of something bad. I also doubt she was drinking at the wedding.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:03 pm |
  612. Caitlyn

    If you don't want ot have trouble online, just don't post things that could get you in trouble. I do feel bad for that girl.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:05 pm |
  613. randy

    i think that she shouldn't have gotin sepened because it was at a wedding and it was on face book

    October 26, 2010 at 5:07 pm |
  614. Jon

    The school should have conducted a more formal investigation and contacted the parents of the student. If they have done that there would possibly be limited issues. But no one knows what could have happened, only what did. :/

    October 26, 2010 at 5:09 pm |
  615. Vladimir

    I think that when you put something online that shouldn't be there that you're either being pressured to do it, or because you don't know that it's something that could get you into trouble. Not all schools have school rules about online photos, so you have to be careful.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:12 pm |
  616. Leah

    Here's a good rule of thumb: if you can think of ANYONE, anyone at all, from your parents, to your best friend, to your significant other, to a teacher, anyone at all that you don't want to see that picture, don't put it online.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:13 pm |
  617. Laura

    ...If you post something online, it should be something that you would be ok showing your parents or family. Even if you or your parents may think it's ok, it still might get you in trouble...

    October 26, 2010 at 5:16 pm |
  618. Teagan

    I would decide what to put online by looking at it to see if had anything that would get me hurt or in trouble. I would also let my mom or dad check before I posted it.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:16 pm |
  619. Michaela

    I only put a few pictures of me on, and I'd never put anything bad up because anyone can see it. Also if my friends are going to put some of me up, i ask them to ask me first.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:20 pm |
  620. andrew

    i think that u should look at some of the rules that the school has and see your pictures or just don't have something that looks like alcohol or a drug.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:21 pm |
  621. Chris

    I myself, think that you may put what you want on the internet. As long as you know what your doing, and what the consequences will be if you put something you know you shouldnt on.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:22 pm |
  622. Danny :)

    I was in the same situation, but me and my friend were dancing to the lego beer song. 🙂
    At the end of the video we showed that the cans we used were fully empty, my principal watched the video somehow, but didnt watch the end. I was suspended from band and 2 days out of school.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:22 pm |
  623. Annie

    With all this social networking in this day and age it is easy to turn an innocent picture into something criminal like, you have to be super careful and before you post any picture look it over and ask yourself "would my grandmother approve?"

    October 26, 2010 at 5:25 pm |
  624. Jianna

    I think that you shouldnt even take a picture with someone that had beer because that picture might end up on something like Facebook or Myspace.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:27 pm |
  625. joe

    Well the internet is good if you use it in the right way. It is not good if you use it in the wrong way.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:27 pm |
  626. Cynthia

    i think that if you cant post something good than don't post it at all i mean come on if you cant find something something interesting that doesn't hurt some one than don't post it.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:30 pm |
  627. Dom

    Teens should not be posting pictures like that on Facebook if they know it could cause trouble. Though the school should have had a meeting with the parents before the student.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:33 pm |
  628. Abby

    Did you know there is a law that regulates how old you need to be to use a social networking site? It's either 13 or 14. I don't use any site. If I want someone to know something, I can tell them in person or write a letter. Social Networking is dangerous. It's like the world's largest gossip center.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:33 pm |
  629. Gabrielle

    i say that if you want to put something on the internet do it with something that wont be efencive to anyone and/or wont do any thing bad. If you have to say somthing or have a picture that the person is in doesnt say you can than dont.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:35 pm |
  630. Christopher

    I think it was not really her fault. Because the reason i say that is because it was not her fault. If it was then you have a reason to kick her at of school but she didn't so y would u kick her out?

    October 26, 2010 at 5:36 pm |
  631. nick

    i think that you shouldn`t put any thing on the internet that might get you in trouble with the police or your school.

  632. natashia

    be careful what you put online and look close like what you will put online

    October 26, 2010 at 5:38 pm |
  633. Jinoh

    The problem with socail netowrks such as Facebook is that the default "privacy" setting is "public." Therefore, once we put something out on to the internet, it will instantly be viewable by millions of people.
    This means we have to be extra-considerate on what we post. Obviously, we should not post content that might harm in the future (e.g. inappopriate found by your employer when you are applying for a job.) What we put out onto the internet should not be obscene for our own protection. We also shouldn't but personal and private information, such as our addresses and phone numbers.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:38 pm |
  634. Layla

    I say, if you were ashamed if your parents saw it don't put it up at all.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:39 pm |
  635. Gracie

    I think if you put something online, you should make sure it doesn't look like it's wrong, even if someone else is really doing the wrong thing.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:39 pm |
  636. Hope

    A pictures worth a thousand words... but in this case these are the wrong ones!!! I think it's wrong that the school suspended her from cheerleading. They have no control over her out of school. But on the other hand, she could have signed an agreement saying she won't do it so they would have control over her in that case. They can't prove anything from my perspective.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:39 pm |
  637. Paul

    I think the best idea is to just stay out of social networking sites because schools like to get involved in those sites and when they do the outcome isn't usually good for whomever they have acused of doing something wrong. Schools often times just instinctively take someone who they think did something wrong and punish them. The school may wrongly acuse someone of doing something wrong with these websites and get a student into a lot of trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:41 pm |
  638. angie

    that was so cruel it is here life so they had no wright to do that becuase she did not do it they are so crule thaking away what she likes to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why would they do that? and make a little girl cry (teenager).

    October 26, 2010 at 5:41 pm |
  639. Garrison

    If you wouldn't show a picture or post that you were going to put online, to your teacher or parent then its probably not appropriate for strangers to see either. That is the question i think all teenagers and kids should ask them self before putting something online.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:43 pm |
  640. Paul

    The problem with social networking sites is that you don't decide what's goes onto the sites. You may have a small amount of control over these matters but normally whomever is near you with a camera in hand has control over these sites. You yourself can decide what's wrong or right to put on these sites by practicing judgement.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:45 pm |
  641. Brooke

    I think people should really watch what they say online. The whole world can see. No one has actual proof on any photos. It is true, a picture can be worth a thousand words

    October 26, 2010 at 5:45 pm |
  642. sujey(SUE-HEY)

    kids are crazy this year but one thing people shouldn't post ion the internet is NOTHING PERSONAL thats what i think

    October 26, 2010 at 5:46 pm |
  643. Nafisa

    I believe what is right or not is a matter of opinion. In any case, you shouldn't put up anything online if you wouldn't normally say/show that to your mom or principal or someone else of high standards. It really matters because what you post really WILL matter in the long run. Something wrong but that everyone does anyways is use FaceBook before a certain age. Don't deny it because 90% of students at my school probably have and use one and I am pretty sure they aren't the legal age. But it is our responsibility and we will be held accountable for it.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:46 pm |
  644. Mitchell

    I think that suspending somebody from a school for an accident not even caused by her should get her suspended from a thing she really likes, but its the schools choice for the consequences.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:47 pm |
  645. Sammy

    If I were to post anything, I'd OK it with my guardian, others may think that their decision is always the better, you never really know, anyone can see it, and with wrong decisions, there are always consequences to be paid in the end.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  646. Jacklynn

    If I put a picture online that could maybe, in the slightest come off as inappropriate, I would'nt post it because the internet is for ever and you don't know whos gonna see it.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:51 pm |
  647. Alexis

    We must realise the Internet isn't as clean at we think it should be. Things have changed. If you even have to ask yourself "should I put this out there?" It's not a good idea!

    October 26, 2010 at 5:53 pm |
  648. Thomas

    It's her own fault for posting it online. The school has every right to suspend her for being that close to a banned drink. I am, however, curious as to why the school was looking on her Facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 5:54 pm |
  649. Andy

    I think that drinking is bad for teen. although i tink that she should not be suspended because she was probly telling the truth

    I think we should think about the consequences of posting anything online for people to see before posting. If we all thought about it more it would happen less often but it still though may happen in some cases. We can't tell if posting will have bad consequences or not all of the time but we can do our best to try and think before we act. You can think about three things: will anybody be offended?, can this get me in trouble?, what might this trouble be?. If we think about these things we are less likely to result in bad consequences for our postings.

    You need to be careful what you post online. Look at me for example, I'm posting online and I could end up on CNN!

    I think if it shows nothing inappropriate you should be able to put it online. There are some other rules though such as don't give out personal information, don't write things that could hurt others, and be careful what you sign up for because there could be consequences. Just watch your back for things you could regret later.

    I agree that she should have been taken off of the team because even though she may have not been drinking the beer, it was still in her possesion.

    I would never put anything online that could potentially get me in trouble, such as a picture of me with a alcohol bottle in my hand. I also don't put any extremely personal information online like on facebook, for example i would'nt put my address.

    i just know what to put on and what not to.
    I'ts obviously easy, to decide that this picture is going to do me a harm when teachers see, and if the picture just looks like something bad, I'd write something about the pic.

    I have to agree that you must be careful about what you put online..
    But it WAS her decision to put that on there. I don't think she was drinking exactly, maybe she was just holding it to be funny.. but thats just another example that you should be careful about what you put on Facebook, Myspace, or anything on the internet.

    I think it is stupid that they suspended that girl from school cuz her parents were there and a cop at the weeding so if she did have a beer in her hand one of them would take it away as soon as they saw it.

  668. Massie

    I can see where the school is coming from but they don't know what happened at the wedding and should not have jumped to conclusions. If she really was holding that beer, she would have known not to post it publicly for the whole world to see.

    i think it was totally unfair that a girl go expelled from her cheerleading squad and that kids can be crazy i know becasue i am one but sometimes a kid is a kid and u could never change that until you give them a chance to grow up

    I think it is good for teachers and school administrators to check on what we're doing online. But Facebook or any other network sharing websites should have a system that checks on the pictures we upload to see if it is appropriate if the user is at a certain age where it is not.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:15 pm |
  672. Kate

  673. Raida

    I think that the school had no right to suspend her because she had a picture of herself with a beer bottle. I mean seriously, It's a picture you cant even see if she's holding it. Obviously, someone was trying to get her in trouble. You just don't see a peer sending a picture to a principle, no matter how bad it is. But the thing that got to me the most was that they questioned her without her parents there. Now that is something they need to take a second look at.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:17 pm |
  674. Drew

    The correct way to put any picture online is to make sure it's OK with your parent/guardian. If you live alone then you can really put anything you want online UNLESS you know that the person doesn't want their picture online. I don't think the schools should be able to have any say about it unless there is some kind of proof that it is cyber-bullying. The school should have no say over something like the beer because whether it's legal or not for someone underage to drink, if the parents allow it online, it's there.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:17 pm |
  675. Abi

    I think if you decide to post anything online to a public site, you have to be sure it's not very personal. Anything about your address, last name, or phone number is too much. If you do decide to post anything like that, or a personal picture, it could get you in big trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:18 pm |
  676. Britani

    Personally the picture should not have been publicly shown. There are risks to posting it and she should have pondered about it before hand. She thought nothing of the picture at the time, and the risks.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:18 pm |
  677. Brooke

    I think what you put online shouldn't be a big deal. Most people know what is appropriate to be shown. The girl in the story wasn't even doing anything wrong in the picture and should not have been suspended for it. They have no proof that she was doing anything wrong and she got in trouble.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:18 pm |

    I wouldn't take any chances. Even if you know somthing about the thing you post online, other people don't, and you couldn get in trouble because of it even if you're innocent.

    I Understand that the picture looks like she is holding a beer, but They should have given her a warning and reminded her that they don't allow students to have alcohol. Suspending her from cheerleading was NOT the right thing to do.

    October 26, 2010 at 6:21 pm |
  680. Hope

    This is totaly ridiculous. The school had no proof that she had drank beer. And people shouldn't post stuff on the internet that looks sispicious or illigal. Also, you have to be 13 to have a Facebook account.

    I think that what you post on internet/social sights is your responsibility and your problem. People shouldn't interfere with what you post. And I think it is okay for anything to be posted because if you are on a Social Network sight then you should have only your friends from school and relatives and friends. You should also keep your profile private so anyone that is NOT your friend can't see what you do on it.

    its none of the school's buisness about what she does in her personal life, but when they see a pic of someone with an alcohol containter near someone's mouth the last thing they shud do is jump to conclutions. especially if they cannot see the person's hand.

    It's innapropriate to put your name, adress or number on the internet for any reason. Try making up a username or if someone asks you to post personal information, tell them you can't unless you know them in person really well.

    It's a tough call, people have a very different veiws of what is good or bad to put up on their account. But really the school had no right to talk to the girl with out her parents present at the time. Also the mother said a cop was there so why would teh girl be drinking????

    You should decide what is OK to put online by asking yourself the question, "What would my parents, teachers, guardians, or future employers, think about this?"
    After you answer that question for yourself, you can decide what is appropriate.

    I think the cheerleader had no right to even put a picture online, if it involed drinking, even if she wasn't. It is smart not to post a picture on Facebook that looks like your drinking, but is not really yours. If that happened to me, I would take total responsibility for that action. But, I wouldn't be the happiest about it.

    I think that you should use your judgement on what you put online. If a picture looks like you could get in trouble for it then i wouldn't post it to public website. Take this girl from Ohio for example. She didn't think that the picture would get her in trouble but it got her suspended from cheerleading. That's why it might not be smart to post pictures that look like they can get you in trouble. Maybe before posting pictures to public websites you can look at them and think, do I really want that to go public?

    To know what to put and not put online try to put yourself in the principals or superintendants shoes. It 's the superintendants job to keep the school safe. Basically you should know the rules of the school and follow them, whatever you put on the internet will be there forever.

    While the school's administration does not know for sure if that was in fact her beverage, it did look as if she was holding it. Considering how most schools have their athletes sign a drug and alcohol agreement form, I do not think the school was far out of line in suspending her from the team.

    Well think about who will be able to see it. If you wouldn't want your parents, friends, teachers, bosses, or coworkers see something, DON'T POST IT ONLINE. Anything, whether you've deleted it or not, is online, in some sort of archive. Even if someone searches on Google, with the right keywords, your photos can come up in the results.

    Never put anything you think is inappropriate. If your not sure if its safe ask your friends or your family. And privacy is very important . So don't any pictures like this one, because people will send it to people like the principal and most likely get you in trouble and get you suspended in thing you like to do like being in a sport. This was a important lesson everybody should have learned.

    I think its unfair. No one could tell she was holding it the beer. Her mom looks like a sensible person, not like someone who would alow under age drinking. If this had happened to me I would talk to the school board and explain. Maybe even have that other girl in the picture there to confirm my story.

    On the other hand why would she have tounge out like she was going to lick the rim of the bottle. That in itself could be enough to suspend her.

    I think you have to be very careful what you put online. To tell whether something is appropriate to put online or not is a very important thing. I would really think about what I was writing. I would think about what others would think and if I were to see this on a social networking site what would I think about it. Also I would see if it would come across as something different than I had intended it to come across as. People may interpret things different then you do, so you have to be careful what you put online because once it’s out there it stays there forever.

    Lots of kids are saying not to put anything inapropriate online. In my opinion you shouldn't have anything inapropriate in the first place.

    And about ther girl I think that It's rediclious that the school would suspend her because of a photo on her personal facebook. How would the school know if some one changed it or not. Plus they don't know the whole story. In this case a picture doesnt say one thoudand words.

    The fact that she was kicked off the squad due to a picture in her personal life, that`s not fair to anyone. She got kicked off because of the drinking of her friend. It would be like me taking a picture with my family in it and there being beer around me.

    Even if she wasn't holding the beer she was still joking about drinking alcohol so I agree that they should suspend her.

    i would never put an inapropiate pictuer on the internet where everyone can see because then i would just make myself look like a fool and im not even allowed to have one because my parents are afraid i will put something bad up.

    I think that if you have any pictures on a website that it should not affect your education and your extra curricular activities unless they were with that subject.

  744. Mackenzie

    I think that if your web browser knows something is not okay to post online, it should just give you an error message saying that this photo is inappropriate to post online.

  745. Rachel

    I really dont think that the school should have punished her for what she did because she didnt do it on school property, she wasnt accessing it on school property, and i don't think that the school shouldn't have had a meeting with her without her parents present or even knowing about it. i would only put pictures on facebook if it was ok with my parents and i wouldnt be ashamed if anyone were to look at it.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:34 pm |
  746. heaven

    i decide by thinking what will my parents do what would people think of me because i would just make myself have a bad image and it could personally wreck my chances of getting into a good college because they look at your profile pictuers and what you put on the internet

    Add a caption! That way, people know what exactly was going on and don't make assumptions... Or, just don't put up pictures of yourself that could be misunderstood in any way. It's better to be safe than sorry.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:41 pm |
  751. Bingo

    The picture looks suspicious, but I'm positive that the school officials were just acting on what they saw, which isn't an effective way to run a school system. She wasn't actually drinking it. You don't punish a girl for an unconfirmed suspicion. That's simply a matter or morality.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:41 pm |
  752. Travis

    Before I post a photo on the internet, I would ask myself if there would any consequence if parents, teachers, principals, friends, or the police saw this photo.

    You have to use some common sense in posting photos. You should be asking yourself, " Would I want my parents to see this?".

  755. Anna

    I think that this is ridiculous that she would get in that much trouble. i watched the show today and saw the picture. if her parents KNEW that she was not drinking then it must be okay. for all they knew, somebody asked her to bring it to her dad or something. this girl obviously wasn't drinking the beer. like her mother say, if she was actually drinking that beer (which she wouldn't have been?) her mother wouldn't have let her put that picture on facebook anyways

    October 26, 2010 at 7:50 pm |
  756. sky

    I have my own facebook, like she does. And I put my picture too. I don`t know why did she post the picture that looks like she`s drinking? Maybe they didn`t think what is going to happen in the future, but they have the responsibility to take care of their picture.

    The online may be used for a place for you to get out of the struggling hands of school, but you still shouldn't post pictures like that online for the police may put you in jail even if you didn't do or drink it.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:52 pm |
  758. Haily

    That was a harsh punishment. But it goes to show that you really need to be careful what you put online. Because you have no idea who will be looking at it.

  759. Katlyn

    If you want other people to know about your personnal business then put it online, and if you don't want people to know about your own personnal business then don't put it online ,especially if you know it will get you in trouble. I mean come on man it's just common sense.

  763. Griffin

    I think that what is posted online is never private. When deciding whether to post a picture online try to look at it from an other persons point of view. If there is any possibility that someone could think there is something in the post that can get you in trouble don't share it. As for this girl I don't believe that she should have received the punishment she got. All in all try to be rather conservative in what you post on Facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:55 pm |
  764. Matthew

    I belive that if the photo was not taken on school property, then it is not the schools job to take action. Also, the person who sent the photo in should also be punished if possible.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:55 pm |
  765. Christine

    This is all stupid. She didn't know that the pictures would be looked at by her classmates. One girl probably thought it would be funny to torture someone she hated. Inmy opinion, this isn't her fault. Just someone who hated her.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:56 pm |
  766. Angela

    I think that what people post online should be determined by the person posting. They should know that if it's going to, in any way, get them in trouble, not to post it. I feel sorry for the girl who got suspended, but that picture should have never been posted in the first place.

    October 26, 2010 at 7:56 pm |
  767. Paul

    When posting things online I always check to make sure that what I'm trying to say is always clear and that people won't mistaken it for something else.

    When you put something online make sure that it is not private information like, your address, phone #, or even your town and street. Whenever you put things online, make sure it's not private info and ask a parent or guardian.

  769. Florance

    I think their should be some controll to go throught sites like Faceok and Twitter for kids that may post unapporiate picturres or messages. Before the post would go through it should be looked at for any unapropriate pictures or words. That was many children and adult wouldn't get in trouble because of their facebook or twitter account.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:02 pm |

    I would not post things online because many people could see you private information . Even if guadian was ok with that I would not. People could tease you behind your back and you would feel awful.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:18 pm |
  772. Tatiana

    I would decide by just knowing what the average person would do if you posted a certain kind of picture. But really, I wouldn't post any photos of you doing anything but just, standing or smiling in front of the camera. If the picture contains any drugs, alcoholic stuff, inappropriate items, I would double check just in case, because, of course, it's social networking, people can just look at your page without you knowing.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:18 pm |

    I think she should not be suspended she was at a wedding having fun. The princeipal over reacted.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:22 pm |
  774. Peyton

    I think the school needs facts before jumping to conclusions. Just because they saw the beer under her mouth does not mean it was in her posession. i would hope that the other girl in the picture wouln't let an underaged girl drink beer around her. A picture with beer in it and supposedly a police man was there, people think this through seriously. I think it's an injustice to America to basically convict someone without looking at the evidence.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:23 pm |
  775. Katie

    I THINK... that Kids should be able to post things on the internet such as facebook, myspace and Twitter all they need to do is make sure that they DO NOT put anything on there that parents, school staff and other people including there self will not think is inapropiate witch means no drugs achol ect. (And to all the veiwers make sure ur parent/guardian knows you have one of these accounts and ask before you put anything on there or u will mosat lickly end up like the girl on here who lost privleges of cheeleading)

    It's your choice and responsibility to put something online that is very appropriate; people can enjoy it which causes them sometimes to learn from what you posted online.

    I don't think it's ok but at my school some one is hacking into peoples facebook and people go to the cousulers office and they say that it's out of school so how is it fair to expel her. ( p.s. Love the show)

    I think that they should have not kicked her out of cheer leading because of a picture she took at somebody wedding and school didn't have nothing to do with it that was here own personal business...........

    October 26, 2010 at 8:31 pm |
  780. DYLAN

    I think the school should not be stalking their studenes, and her mom said that she was not drinking and that should be that. The school should not have kicked her from cheer.

    We discuss with our students on a regular basis be careful of facebook and myspace posts. Some students just make some bad errors in judgement when they do these things and it is sad to see them go through these ordeals.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:40 pm |
  783. JULIA

    I think that its dumb that the school would ban people just because of something thats on their facebook like a picture but still it dose not make a difference if it was wrong or right if it was really a big deal than they would of suspended her.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:41 pm |

  792. Hunter

    Although the school board did have a right to suspend her, they did not, however, have the right to just barge in and say she's suspended from the cheerleading squad. If they would've asked for permission, and done all the right things, then it would be o.k.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:55 pm |
  793. jeremy

    I think that it shouldn't matter what is in the picture. How do they know if she did drink.

    October 26, 2010 at 8:55 pm |
  794. Karli

    As a fellow cheerleader, I understand the severe consequences of misconduct. I believe it is perfectly acceptable for the student to be suspended from the squad, because the mission of a cheerleader is to represent the school in the best possible way and to show school spirit. Whether or not the student was actually holding the alcohol, no one will ever truly know, but as far as the Facebook photo goes, she appears to be in possession. In the handbook that all cheerleaders receive, it is clearly stated in the drug and alcohol policy that possession of alcohol will lead to suspension or removal from the squad. Cheerleaders, and all other athletes, have to be very cautious when it comes to the web.

    If it's your private social life then you shouldn't have to worry about your school or anyone you don't know seeing it. Unfortunately sites like facebook are public sites and anything that is even close to innapropriate should not be on there. It's too bad we can't put fun times on our own facebook account

    October 26, 2010 at 9:16 pm |
  804. Emily

    I can see why they would think that she was holding the beer, but if her parents were there, and a deputy sheriff was there monitoring, I don't think they should go as far as to suspend her from cheerleading, something she loves. I'm a cheerleader, so I would be devestated. Especially if it was a misunderstanding. I think the school should understand that. All the same, be careful what you put online. A picture like that is definitely misleading.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:18 pm |
  805. Ashley

    I think that schools, and work places, shouldn't have to monitor what students do off school property and after school hours that is under parental super vision, and 100% under control. Also, they need to know the WHOLE story and facts before such punishment is done.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:18 pm |
  806. cassie

    Ever since technology has become more popular to teen generation, technology can make a picture look different or someone can place a bottle that you didnt drink in front of you. So if whoever did the wrong they should get a consequence but if it was some kid rediting an appropriate picture into an inappropriate picture they should get the consequence.

    I think that by leaving out the arms of who was holding what, was a BIG mistake. If she had left (took the full pic) the arms in, I think that wouldn't have happened. Deciding what's okay to put up and not to put up, is kinda easy. All you have to do is look at the photo, and see if there is anything that might put another rock in your bag.

    I think it is fine to put pictures online if you are not hurting anyone's feelings. Sometimes you just need to think before you do it to make sure it is something that you don't care if other people see.

    Though there really is not a lot of privacy online, the girl should not have been suspended. If she's a behaved student and does what she is supposed to there, then what she does on her own time is NO ONE 'S BUSINESS! the whole thing got blown WAY out of proportion!

    I think that most things are o.k. to put online. If the picture shows inappropriate things that your school or someone with control over you can see, you should not put it online. Though, if you put a picture that is not necessarily inappropriate, you should not get in trouble for it.

    October 26, 2010 at 9:41 pm |

    I check everything that is put online by myself or someone else. Many people have misunderstood what other people put online, causing chaos for the person. I think that the person who posted it is at fault. They rejected the thought of checking their work and decided the post it without hesitation. I also think the people who saw the other persons post is at fault. People should try understanding what other people put on, using logic and the details set in front of them.

    I think if you put somthing online, you should assume the whole world is going to see it. If you post something that you didnt want people seeing then you shouldnt post it at all. You should always make sure what you post dosent give the wrong immpression,also you should never post anything of a friend without there permission.

    I think that whatever you are okay with other people seeing is where you would draw the line between what's appropriate to put online and what's not. You also have to consider if it will offend anyone else, or if you or someone else would get in trouble if an authorative figure, or anyone else, saw it. You also need to check with a parent or guardian before posting it online.

    I would say that it is going to be hard what to put online and what not to put online. The things you shouldn't put online is things that teacher,coachs,mangers anyone can see. what people should know is If you don't want to get in trouble or be used against you dont post it where everyone can see because one way it will get out and get in the wrong person's hands and it will come back to haunt you.

    It's a really simple answer, if your going to post something, you shouldn't have to second guess yourself and you should have no regrets after you do. It's really up to you if your going to make the right decision and post something thats not inappropriate or immature. It shows your character and what person you are, and who you want to be.

    What you put online will never go away. You thinks its gone because you cant phisically see it, but it will always be there floating somewhere in cyber-space. I have a facebook, and i only put picutres and posts that i think are appropriate. If i feel that something that i put up is innapropriate, or hurting others i will take it off, or never put it up in the first place. Sometimes people just put picutres and put posts up that will be there to make them look cool. It might be them drinking, or making fun of others. To me, that is pointless. It is not a very appropriate thing to put online. In my past i might have put something online that wasnt appropriate, or that hurt others, and yes, at the time it seemed like a good idea, but now looking back at it, it was not so smart of me to do. I feel that if you have a wierd feeling or your concious is telling you not to do it, you shouldnt. But if something is nice, or complementary to others that would be fine to put online. That is how i can tell what is okay to put online and what is not okay to put look online.

    If you don’t want somebody to see it don’t post it..! Really I think it was the right decision to kick her of the cheer squad (hint) all the papers you have to sing to join the team in the first place. If you break the rules you face the Consequence.

    if she put it online she must've thought it would be seen I think that if her parents ok it so should everyone else including the school board

    Never put things on your Facebok page, which you wouldn't tell to somebody you don't know.

    I think that if a person is going to be posting a picture online (not necessarily of themselves, even), then they should go over the picture very carefully and make sure that the picture contains nothing that could be considered "inappropriate". Not only could they get in trouble at school or work, they also may end up with a picture or video that they will end up regretting when it is all over the Web. If you want to post a picture online, then check it with your parents first!!!

    How i know if it is right to put on line is if i dont have to question my self its ok to put it on there and it wont hurt me or people around me

    October 26, 2010 at 10:22 pm |
  838. Muryam

    I think you should never put any personal info online no matter what. There is always a reason for people who don't have facebook or any of that.

  839. Tyler

    Personally, I put up what I want when I want. The school has no right going into matters that weren't on school grounds. What I do outside of school should have nothing to do with what happens in school. However, if the school has a strict alcohol rule for sports and you post a picture of you drinking, then you should face the consequences.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:33 pm |
  840. Melanie

    I think anyone is innocent untill proven guilty. We really dont know if she had it in her posetion or not, the picture was cut off. Her school should of done more investigating first. She should have been more careful and thought before she posted it on Facebook.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:35 pm |
  841. Sophia

    I think that whatever you post online, no matter what website, you are responsible. This could get you in trouble, or not if you only post the things you are suppose to. Just be careful whatever you do because a innocent photo could look like something different. And ruin your reputation too.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:36 pm |
  842. Kara

    Gosh, this girl was just having fun at the wedding, she didn't drink! Why on earth would the school be stalking her profile anyway? I don't think it is even right to do something like that to someone. She was just having fun, she didn't get dunk or anything, it was a wedding reception, not a college party.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:36 pm |
  843. Victoria

    I just saw the video of the girl who got suspended from cheerleading because of a photo on Facebook that was misleading. I find it to be unacceptable for the school to automatically suspend the girl without letting her give her defense. As for what you should and should not put on Facebook (or online period), I feel that the photo of the 16 year old cheerleader with the bottle of beer "appearing to be in her possession" should not have been put on Facebook. It rose suspicion to someone that the 16 year old was drinking alcohol. I firmly believe that the girl should have been allowed to give her defense and had time to prove her innocence, but I also believe that she should have thought about what people might think if they saw the picture. Even though people say, "Who cares what other people think!" you should at least think about it and ask yourself, What could be the possible consequences?

    October 26, 2010 at 10:42 pm |
  844. Joey

    i think that the school is being unreasonable beacuse if her mom said that it wasnt hers and that she doesnt let her drink she shouldnt get in trouble even thought she shouldnt have been around a person drinking.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  845. Abby

    I understand Bree situation here, but I wouldn't have still put it online if no one can see that I am not the one who is holding the material. I especially would have double checked with my parent or gaurdian saying that if it was okay to post it up in the first place. Anything that is put online can be seen by anyone and there will be consequences to pay in the end.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  846. Omar

    I think that if people are old enough to be able to put things online, then they should be able to know what to put or not.

    I think people should not be blamed for someone else's actions

  848. olivia

    I think it would be ok to put a picture online as long as i felt it was ok for the workd to see and you got to know where your limits are. I also think that people should first think about the good things in a picture before they go ahead and think about the bad things.

    October 26, 2010 at 10:58 pm |
  849. Savannah

    I think that if the school thinks she was drinking, to put it to the test. The teenager shouldn't have been called to the principles office about her picture of Facebook without a parent to know if this is legit or no legit.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:01 pm |
  850. Nichole

    I think the only things you should put online would be things that you wouldn't care if your parents/ teachers see. If you wouldn't want your parents to see what you are doing on the web, or if you are questioning if it is a bad idea, don't do it. Also, don't put anything on the Internet that looks suspicious in anyway, like with her picture and how it could have been her beer or might not have been.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:15 pm |
  851. Jacob

    Anything that you would feel uncomfortable sharing/showing to your Family, then you shouldn't post it.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:15 pm |

    see the problem is, even if she wasn't drinking or holding the beer. We all know actions speak louder than words.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:17 pm |
  853. Abby

    I think it's okay to do that because it's off school grounds. If the girl was really drinking why would they put that picture online? And, the princial sholudn't suspension from her high school's cheerleading squad because it's not his concern.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:21 pm |
  854. seamus

    I think it is not good to put stuff online if you don't want some one to see it. Becuse eaven if you don't do some thing bad it could be mistaken fore some thing eals and you cold get in alot of truble.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:26 pm |
  855. Kierra

    Well if some thing seems like it's leading to the wrong thing don't post it and be for you post ask an adult you don't want one picture or thing you say online to mess up your life

    October 26, 2010 at 11:42 pm |
  856. Hae

    If a child allows a suggestive post or picture to be put on the internet they should have to deal with any consequence. although a parent should be contacted first in any school involved facebook issue.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:50 pm |
  857. samantha

    what you put online is for everyone to see and if you don't want people to see it keep it to your self.... because if its private then don't show it to anyone.

    October 26, 2010 at 11:52 pm |
  858. Aidan

    I think that if people did not critisize what people put online, you could basically put anything online... censored though. But still, you should get your parents to revise it for you.

    October 27, 2010 at 12:01 am |
  859. Madeleine

    I think that this 16 year old girl didn't think she'd get introuble for it because she knows that she didn't have the Beer in her posetion it was in her sister's hand, but that did not show in the picture.

    October 27, 2010 at 12:05 am |
  860. Breanna

    Personally, I think that the school was wrong. If the parent allowed the picture to be posted and not deleted, why would there be any problem? She wasnt taking the photo on school campus, why was the school snooping around in her personal life? Its not right! It violates one of our amendments for sure, if I was her I would take it to court its not fair! But,
    I do think students should limit offensive pictures though. Parents should also monitor students/teenagers what they put online because you never know who is looking! 😦

    October 27, 2010 at 12:14 am |

    people shouldent post things that could get you in trouble like personal things

    I think that nobody should expect privacy. Thats just a given. If you want privacy don't put on line.

  863. Matt

    If you wouldn't show it to a school administrator don't put it online. This is a rule some of my teachers told me and one that I think everyone should follow.

  867. Nivie

    If you can't where a picture or writing on your shirt to school and everywhere you go for the day, don't post it on the internet! (My teacher told me this)

    October 27, 2010 at 1:59 am |
  868. Alexandra

    I personly think that you shouldn't post anything private or things that may post anything that would cause suspition. All though you might think that it won't cause any trouble, you should look at the things that you are posting at the viewer's point of view. That way you might prevent the problems like getting suspended. Also we should remember that what you put on face book or MySpace or any other online websites are always open to the public. Anyway, my point is just be aware!

    October 27, 2010 at 6:22 am |
  869. Alexis

    I think it's totally unfair that she got suspended from cheerleading! It wasn't school hours so the school should not be responsible for her after the bell rings.

    October 27, 2010 at 6:48 am |
  870. Chaz

    Its ridiculous to make an accuasation such as the one that the people at the school made and said that the girl was holding the alcoholic beverage. Those administrators should be more concerned with education than trying to set a precedent or make an example out of that girl.

    October 27, 2010 at 7:32 am |
  871. alexandria

    i decide if it looks like something that i might not want some one to see then i do not need to put it on there because every body makes mistakes but internet mistakes stay there forever

    October 27, 2010 at 7:46 am |
  872. sammi

    i think that schools should focus more on more impotant stuff like drugs or bullying. i mean , she didn't have the alcohol in her possession , so she shouldnt get suspended.

    October 27, 2010 at 7:59 am |
  873. joshua

    She was too careless and thoughtless. She had to be selective because many people were watching her pictures.

    October 27, 2010 at 8:10 am |
  874. Diva

    I think that you should see if what you are putting up will not hurt anyone in anyway. Whatever you put online should be something that you are ok with leaving up there for anyone to see, because once its up there, it will stay up there.

    October 27, 2010 at 8:34 am |
  875. Abbi

    The girl might have been holding the beer, we don't know.Her mom says she was not, so most people believe her. But she could have been.

    October 27, 2010 at 8:39 am |
  876. Samantha

    I think that you should watch what your putting online because people can get the wrong idea. i also think that your parents should monitor what you are putting on the internet. It is better to just not put any pictures of yourself online unless you know that it doesnt look or seem wrong i any way. That will help alot when deciding what to put online and what not to.

    October 27, 2010 at 8:48 am |
  877. emily

    i think that you should watch what you say or put online. also you should be able to have your own privacy of your own. maybe instead of just getting their fave up they should of gotten fronm the arms and up so they wouldn't of had any confusion on who was holding what.

    October 27, 2010 at 8:48 am |

    you just need to be smart with what you put on line. Pictures are a hard thing to think about because, its tough because anyone can get them. I think no pictures are safe online but, thats me. i think good pictures are of you and your friends or girlfriend or boyfriend but, they need to be Appropriate!!!!!!!

    October 27, 2010 at 9:14 am |
  880. Kendall

    I think if you put something online it should be appropriate. Because do you want to get in trouble for putting something on the internet, plus you'll get in trouble by someone. Besides you'll look like a fool. Be careful what you put on the internet because it never goes away, what ever you put on the internet it is stored. And if you want to apply for a college they can see what you have done; same thing for a job.

    October 27, 2010 at 9:16 am |
  881. Brooke

    If you had something to say, but your not sure it's respectful, do what I do... if your grandma would faint if she saw it, don't even try to post it. Even if you think you deleted the comment, nothing ever permanently goes.

    if you dont want to look bad, then you shouldnt put things online that are going to hurt your reputation. if you dont know what is safe then dont put anything on the internet.

    I think that a picture online Shouldn't matter to a school because they might not always tell the truth. but i also wouldn't put anything online to embarass me, my friends, or my family...

  885. Clover

    What you put online is your own choice, but I wouldn't put anything inaproprate! If you are ashamed of it, you shouldn't have posted it, if you can't tell your parents, friends you shouldn't have posted anything at all!

    October 27, 2010 at 10:07 am |
  886. Casey

    i think that if you wouldn't say it to anyone, don't put it online. people often think that it is okay to say it online, but not in person. that isn't true though. saying something online or in person doesn't matter, because you are still saying the same thing! so, kids need to think before they speak or type.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:08 am |
  887. Graham

    What is put online is a child's responsibility and if someone else gets in trouble the child who posted it should take the heat.

  888. Hannah

    If it's not a picture that you would show to your mom, dad or any family member don't put it online. Always be careful of what you do put online because it can never be taken away.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:08 am |
  889. Emily

    I do not think its OK to post things without my parents approval, because you never know who can see your pictures or basically anything you post to the computer.

  890. Rebecca

    I don't think it's a good idea to put bad pictures one your Facebook because the hole world can see it.When I get older and want to get a job and I have pictures of me doing bad things they won't want me to work with them.When I go to collage and play softball if you put bad pictures on it they will kick you off the the team.On my Facebook I have pictures of good things like sport teams and me with my friends.If I were you keep good pictures online.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:09 am |
  891. Lucy

    I think that what you put on line is your own business. If you want to be foolish you can put bad things on there. But that will be all you at the end

  892. Lily

    You never know what could happen to you if you take the chance to but something private online. I don't understand why people cant just keep private photos to themselves instead of posting it because it can cause you a lot of trouble in the future.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:09 am |
  893. Evan

    i think that what you put online is up to you. but u have to be ok with your best friends seeing it and your grandma seeing it. it is good to think before you click enter because it will be there forever.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:09 am |
  894. Alana

    I believe that posting stuff on the internet can lead to other things that could be what you want or something that you do not want so be careful and never post something that you only want your friends to see because it could lead other places and could get out of hand. If you don't want your parents to see then don't post it because they could most likely see it don't worry they are looking out

    October 27, 2010 at 10:10 am |
  895. Noah

    i think that your privacy online should be..... private but if you honestly want a picture of yourself then you should post one that is appropriate. but if i were to post a picture of myself it would be a picture of me in clothes.and i would just play it safe and not even think of posting a picture. (even if i am really handsome)

    October 27, 2010 at 10:10 am |
  896. Sabrina

    I don't expect the internet to be private. Everybody who has access to the internet can see it. Internet users shouldn't post anything private online. People can never remove what they put online and that can be a bad thing. Imagine if someone put something private about you, you would be very mad and disappointed in their peers. So therefore I think that you shouldn't put topics that are private to you or someone else.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:11 am |
  897. Adam

    i think that you should be very careful of what you put online. i also believe that schools should not get involved if the student puts something online they shouldn't of if it wasn't at school. if someone puts stuff on they shouldn't of at school they should be punished by the school. i believe this is a very serious topic.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:11 am |
  898. Shannanay

    What you put online doesn't only matter to you but if you think about it and decide wether you want to go through drama or the consequences it gives to you. My motto is stop think and then react. So think about it don't get introuble.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:12 am |
  899. Jenna

    I think that if you post something on line that you should be able to show it to an adult in your life and not have an embarrassing feeling.

  900. Spencer

    I think that you should be smart enough understand what could happen if you post inappropriate pictures or comments online, or even video. Having said that I am highly aware as should others on what may or can happen to people that are against this. I believe you should say to yourself before posting anything online. Is this appropriate, is this embarrassing, can I be affected in any negative way by this comment/post.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:12 am |
  901. Breanne

    I don't think that the school should be able to suspend anyone for doing something off school grounds. Her parents were there, so they are responsible for her. If it had been at school, or right after school before she went home (when she would still be the school's responsibility) then that would be much different. This story just goes to show you how crazy the world is becoming. Whoever sent the school the picture probably had a grudge against her. What I think is odd though, is that facebook doesn't let you see other users pictures unless you are their friend. So did one of her friends do this to her?

    October 27, 2010 at 10:14 am |

    I've seen a lot of pictures, blogs, etc., but i see any reason why people shouldn't blog or leave pictures. The only thing you need to do is to not put up anything too personal without knowing what would happen next.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:24 am |

    i have seen a lot pictures, videos. people should not put pictures videos because people will download it and give it to their friends.

    what your posting online is of your own willingness. you should never post anything that you will regret later in life.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:25 am |
  906. Gabby

    To decide if something is "okay" to put online, you should imagine wearing that picture or comment on your shirt the entire day. If for any reason at all you feel like covering it up, then maybe it isn't such a good idea to post it online.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:25 am |

    I think what you put online is your business and nobody should be able to tell you how to express one's self

    when you post things on line they should already know that it could end up somewhere else if they act surprised when they see it somewhere else they should its called the world wide web for a reason .

    I think that it's stupid that the school suspended her because it was someting outside of school. You shouldnt post pictures with weapons or drugs because that will get you in trouble.

    Every action has a concequence, it might be good or bad but there still is one so think things through before you post something.

  919. Megan

    I think that what yu put online should be something that you would not feel embarassed to show or tell our parents. I also think that schools should not be able to make you get in trouble from something you do outside of school

    October 27, 2010 at 11:02 am |
  920. Billianne

    I don't think she should have posted a picture like that. I also think the school had no right to say anything about it because it didn't take place on school grounds or involve the school. Plus I don't think it is illegal for her to hold a beer it's just illegal for her to drink it. But I think she still shouldn't put up pictures like that for other reasons.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:02 am |
  921. Chris

    I think you shouldn't put anything online that people could use against you or if you think it's personal iformation. I also think that the school was right to get involved but should have talked to the parents before the student.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:03 am |
  922. Whitney

    What I think is appropiet to put online is anything you wouldn't be embarrased to show your parents or siblings about ,but I think the school shouldn't be allowed to give concequences for doing something after school, they could call the parents to inform them what happens but nothing more.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:04 am |
  923. Betanya

    I think that people should look at their pictures and decide if they are appropriate. People should think if they are comfortable with pictures. Schools shouldn't get involved unless the picture directly affects them. Everyone has a right for privacy and pictures can also be misleading.

    I think that schools shouldn't get involved in facebook because it is really easy to be mislead and we don't need to be careful because the only one it hurts is oursleves

  925. Kenzie

    Posting things online is up to you, so if I really want to post something I can but if it's not something that you would tell anyone anywhere, including photos.I think that schools can ge involved but not for stupid reasons like the picture.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:04 am |
  926. Destiny

    You should never post a picture or a comment that would embarass your family, your friends, or yourself. If your post or picture is appropriate then you shouldn't have to worry if adults from your school check them:)

    October 27, 2010 at 11:06 am |
  927. Nathan

    You shouldn't put anything online that you wouldn't show your parents or your little siblings.I don't think that schools should get involved with outside of school affairs.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:07 am |
  928. Jake

    I really think about what I put online before I post it because I don't want to embarass myself or others,and I don't think the school should get involved it the picture is outside of school or non school related ,if something is school related then they have a right to get involved.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:07 am |
  929. Bridget

    I think that if you wouldn't show it to your grandma you shouldn't put it online. But teachers shouldn't be able to get invoked in what you post because it isn't about school but if it is at a school event then they do have the right too.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:08 am |
  930. Christian

    You should consider all of the consequenses then determine wether you can deal with it or not. If you wouldn't say that outloud don't post it online. I don't think that schools should get involved with outside the school affairs because the school can take action for what you do in school but not for what you do with your life outside of school.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:08 am |
  931. Zep

    I think it is not appropriate for school admin to be looking at our facebook. I don't search the teachers facebook to see what they post. I know what I should post and what not to. I wonder if my school would suspend me if I posted my old time picture that has a fake gun in my hand and. A fake bottle of alcohol in my hand. Is that realy fair?

    October 27, 2010 at 11:10 am |
  932. Sydney

    I think that yOu are old enough to be able to tell if your comment is appropriate to put online. If you would do it with your family around, you shouldn't do it online. I think it was dumb for her to get suspended because it was her decision and the picture didn't effect the school so I don't gt why thy thought it was so important. I don think the school should get involeved unless it could effect the school or safety of the students. I think they should have trusted her. If she is on cheerleading, I'm pretty sure she isn't going to be stupid and do something to hurt her on purpose.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:11 am |
  933. Allie

    I think people should think before they deiside to put personal pictures and information online. If u put something online you have to know anyone can see it. Also I think that girl shoul of been suspended because it had to with a student and harmful drugs.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:11 am |
  934. Cody

    My personal opinion is Facebook tells you what images you shouldn't put, but obviously people don't follow those instructions. Then again, no teacher has the right to monitor a kid on a social network and tell them what pictures they can and cannot post up. Yeah an underage teen shouldn't have pictures posted up making it look like they have been consuming alcoholic beverages, but then again, it's not a teachers job to monitor them. It's the parents.

  941. Matilde

    I think that they should show how you keep your profile safe in school, like we did in ours last year. Now only my family and friends see my photos and posts. But I also think that you should never show something that you don't like.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:26 am |
  942. Mario

    i think that if you put any images online that will cause trouble-it's pretty obvious which ones you know will-then don't do it.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:26 am |
  943. omar

    Well what ever you put up on the internet you just gotta be aware that everyone is able to see what you are doing so you just gotta be careful on what you put up because there are bad people out there in the world.

    i think that they shouldnt have kicked her off the team because she probably wasnt drinking and her mom said that she looked at all the pictures before they were put on facebook and i take alcohol to my mom all the time.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:35 am |
  949. anonymous

    f you post something online, it should be something that you would be ok showing your parents or family. Even if you or your parents may think it's ok, it still might get you in trouble...

    i think she wasn't drinking and her and her friend were locking arms. she should have not been kicked off the team until they knew for sure she was drinking.

    i think that they shouldnt have kicked her off the team because she probably wasnt drinking and her mom said that she looked at all the pictures before they were put on facebook and i take alcohol to my mom all the time so im against it

  954. Shelby

    I don't think she should have been kicked out of sports just because it looks like she was holding a beer. They also had a on duty police at the wedding but i guess she should have been more careful about what she was doing.

    I think that it is not ok to put bad pictures online because everyone can see what you put. Same with the comments online i have a facebook and i see alot of bad things like pictures and comment.

    I think I you should be very careful what you put online. Anything you put online could be used against you. If you put something online It can never really be tooken off the computer

  959. arian

    I THINK THAT SCHOOLS SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT WE PUT ON THE INTERNET BECAUSE WHATEVER WE DO AFTER SCHOOL IS OR BUSINESS THE SCHOOL SHOULD WORRY ABOUT BIGGER PROBLEMS LIKE KEEPING ARE SCHOOLS SAFE AND KEEPING DRUGS AWAY FROM SCHOOL AND GANG VIOLENCE

    Its your fault that you put bad stuff online

    October 27, 2010 at 12:40 pm |

    October 27, 2010 at 12:41 pm |

    i think it was wrong for them to suppend her from cheerleading because it was a mishap.!

    it was not smart to post that photo

    October 27, 2010 at 12:43 pm |

    i think you shouldnt put any photo or comment on facebook or myspace because wat you put online you cant take off ever and then the whole world will see it online

    October 27, 2010 at 12:44 pm |
  966. Cole

    i think she has now brain and it was her falt because she addmited that she had acohol in her hand that what got her supinded.and it wasn't the schools problem until that person sent it to them.

    The girl confesed so I think her parents should stop fighiting it

    October 27, 2010 at 12:46 pm |
  968. collyn :)

    I think that she sould have not got in trouble because thats her own facebook and for the school to get her in trouble when she did it on her own propertry thats her parents fault not the schools prob to worry about.

    October 27, 2010 at 12:47 pm |
  969. Robert

    i think you shouldnt put any photo or comment on facebook or myspace because wat you put online you cant take off ever and then the whole world will see it online and i understand if it is something bad like if she was drinking a beer or if she didnt have any clothes on i would understand that but she wasnt even holding the beer. Plus its personal wedding and the school has no right to do that. THier was also a deputy on duty and the wedding

    if you put something online it really shouldnt be a teacher or principles bussiness.if it has something to do with school shure i see a reason why should get in trouble.but if it has something to do with you posting a photo on facebook you shouldnt get in trouble.if its not on school property there is no reason for you to get in trouble or suspended.

  976. Trae

    I think what you put on the internet is for everyone to see. If you don't want anyone to see it it shouldn't even be on the internet. Even if you put it on private, there is always going to be a way someone is going to see it besides you. If you don't want any one to see it don't post it.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:22 pm |
  977. Marcos

    I think you should only post pictures that you would not be afraid to put on tv. Always be careful what you post.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:24 pm |
  978. Taylor

    It wasn't on school time or school property, so the school should have no say in the picture.

    We all have put pitchers on facebook ,myspace,ect. I feel that most people put many very aproprat pitchers on line but some people dont not how ever that is there chouies not ours.If kids put something online then there parents should be the only ones who can have a say. Teachers should not be invold in that chosie

    October 27, 2010 at 1:25 pm |

  981. Kira

    To be honest you don't know what can be wrong if the sites don't have standards to stop it. But having privacy about what you put on their {Besides Parents or related to school} profiles or what ever, should be to their concern. Yeah their friends should say something if they are with them at the moment when they put it up. If it's a really something so bad then don't put it up in the first place.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:40 pm |
  982. Nathaniel

    I wouldn't post anything online that would sound threatening or offensive.

  984. Bryn

    As long as you keep the mentality that NOTHING is private on the internet, then it should be easy to decide what and what not to post online. You decide what you want to keep private, because once something's online, it's accessible for the whole world.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:45 pm |
  985. Jammer

    People should not post anything inappropriate or vulgar online. Anything they post can come back to hurt them.

  986. Adrianna

    Everyone needs to remember that if you put something online it's there FOREVER! Even if you delete it, it's not really gone. The safest thing to do is to make your profiles private so you choose who sees your stuff. However, you still shouldn't post anything you don't feel comfortable showing your parents, teachers, or anything you wouldn't say or do in person.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:46 pm |
  987. Erica

    Be smart about what you put online. Obviously, if you are apart of a group or club, you should watch how you represent yourself. But also, it's online and out of school. Unless a bad photo takes place on school property or with school memorabilia, then some discipline should take place. Otherwise it's their pictures, and they have a right to post what they want.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:50 pm |
  988. Alexandra

    I think that it is sometimes not the person's fault because sometimes they have no idea. I think at that point, it is the person's fault that took the picture.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:50 pm |
  989. Mariah

    Although we have a right to privacy, many take advantage of this right by promoting material that we all know is inappropriate to put online. Putting inappropriate material online, not only reflects someone's character in a negative light, but can also be potentially damaging to their reputation. If you have no respect for yourself, then at least have respect for others who are online. There are some things that are just not meant to be viewed by everyone.

    October 27, 2010 at 1:53 pm |

    Its the people that put there picture on the Facebook If they want people to see It they sould put It blocked or at leasted keep It to urself or just don't put It on Facebook It u want a picture on Facebook then think of what Is right to put on the Internet. If the parents a prove of the picture then they should be able told put It on the Internet

    October 27, 2010 at 2:03 pm |
  991. james

    what you put online is up to you. it's your responsibility to make sure it's appropiate. if it seems "suggestive" or illegal, then you shouldnt post it. it's gonna be on a global system and most likely won't get off any time soon.

    October 27, 2010 at 2:04 pm |
  992. Jessica

    I don't think she should be suspended from the cheer squad because they don't know if she was really drinking the beer. Her friend was holding it. Her teacher should not be going through her facebook page either.

    October 27, 2010 at 2:08 pm |
  993. William

    I think they had no right to be on her facebook page. They have no right to be looking through her page.

    You should be able to make the decision would your mom or dad be mad if they saw it?, and would you care if people you didn't know saw it. Ask what would they think about it?, and that should help you decide if it is okay or not to put online.

    October 27, 2010 at 2:27 pm |
  997. Lexi

    I think that what you post online must be limited, and reasonable. I mostly suggest, though, that teachers should be busy doing what their jobs consist of, instead of worrying about students off campus. Still, you must be careful what you put online.

    October 27, 2010 at 2:29 pm |
  998. Dalton

    I think that the school invaded her privacy . Even though it did look like she was the one drinking the beer the school had no business looking at her facebook . I also think that that she has the right to put anything she wants online , as long as it has nothing to do with school . Also she needs to know that what she puts online stays there forever .

    October 27, 2010 at 2:33 pm |
  999. Dylan

    i think people need to think about what they are going to put up online.

    What you put online is up to you. What you put online can't be anything bad against anybody and it shouldn't be that you would want to hurt anybody.

    October 27, 2010 at 2:59 pm |
  1002. Alexei

    Honestly there should be no problem with posting things online as long as it isn't obscene or illegal. If I want a picture next to a beer bottle i should be able to take one. The school shouldn't be in students business outside of school anyway. School is school, home is home, only parents have power in that domain, if they're okay with it then it shouldn't matter.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:06 pm |
  1003. Jolica

    I feel that our lives outside of school should not effect us in school. Therefore, what we post online should not be such a big deal, but that does not mean we should be irresponsible either.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:07 pm |
  1004. Edward

    What you put online is being shared to everyone else. Such as putting up an embarrassing picture; YOU ARE SHARING IT WITH THE WORLD, what you put up is at your own risk. So its not the matter of what to post, its the matter of IF you want to post it.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:07 pm |
  1005. Claire

    Think before you post.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:21 pm |

    If your comfortable with the whole world seeing it and it being available forever then go for it. Its all up to you and what you feel comfortable sharing

  1009. Bree

    I think that it's a person's choice to put their personal information online. There are some consequences for their actions and if they wanna risk a dirty picture to get some attention then go ahead with your bad self.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:57 pm |
  1010. omar

    nothing is private if you put it on line of course. what do you expect so no you shouldn't expect privacy at all if you post it online. like this post whos all going to see this and read it. ANYBODY that comes across it.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:59 pm |
  1011. Veronica

    Don't post anything that will cause you problems in the future. Think about any consequences you want to avoid.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:59 pm |
  1012. Sarah

    If you feel its good for the world seeing it put it on.

    October 27, 2010 at 3:59 pm |
  1013. Michelle

    In my opinion theres not a right or wrong thing to put online. As long as its not your personal information a picture of you having fun at a party is not a huge deal. You are simply being yourself and if you feel the need to hide that than maybe you are sharing your life with the wrong people. I've learned from experience that no matter what I may post the ones that matter won't care. A school should not be able to invade your personal life that you are clearly not hiding just to get you in trouble. If you're not harming others than theres no reason they should be looking at your pictures.

    October 27, 2010 at 4:00 pm |
  1014. Mo

    I think that people should know what they're getting themselves into when they post stuff up online, so they have to face the consequences.

  1015. Ana

    If you aren't sure about pictures you put online, don't put them online. you never know who is going to see it. It could be a teacher or parent that sees it. you could get in big trouble just for putting a picture online.

    October 27, 2010 at 4:00 pm |

    I would never put anything like that online without giving the truth before. If you want to put something like that online think!

    when you post a coment picture etc. you have to keep in mind that millions and mllions of people are going to see it or read it so beware were about what to post online

    October 27, 2010 at 4:01 pm |
  1018. Thalia

    Life in school should not be affected by out of school. That just goes against our rights of privacy and the bit of freedom that each person has. As for posting things online, it is at one's fault if we decide to post something or not because it is public. Sadly, privacy doesn't really exist, when it should.

    October 27, 2010 at 4:01 pm |
  1019. Matthew

    When you post a picture online you are showing it to the whole world, and making it available for anyone to take and use it as the please. So you should not post anything that diminishes your character, unless you want people to think low of you.

    October 27, 2010 at 4:01 pm |

    It's okay to post anything online... as long as you know your limitats and cautious about what you share.

  1022. paulina

    i think you should feel free to post anything you are comfortable with on the internet and not feel like your being judged in any way because what you post is a reflection of yourself. The internet is a free space to express yourself but you have to know that the whole world is seeing it also.

    October 27, 2010 at 4:02 pm |
  1023. Nathaniel

    When I post something online I know if it is the right or wrong thing: Before you post something on for example someones blog think: Would I say this to that person if they were standing right here.

    What happened here was wrong in my opinion. First of all, holding an alcoholic beverage outside of school with your family, does not qualify for her to be possessing alcohol or under the influence of alcohol. There is no evidence it is her's or that she drank any of it. Then, she is hit with a punishment which is completely iniquitous based on her actions, which in my opinion were not even wrong in the slightest bit in the first place. The punishment was a suspension of her school sport cheerleading, which is unjust because cheerleading is optional, so obviously it is a sport she really loves, and they took it away from her for really doing nothing wrong at all from my perspective. Also this can all be tied back to the Bill of Rights, in the fourth amendment, which has to do with peoples privacy. Why should the schools administrators be allowed to look through students personal lives on facebook? What people put on there is their own business. But, she also has to respect the fact that whatever you put on the internet can be seen by anybody. But again, the school has no business looking through students private life, and in someways, could be considered a violation of the fourth amendment.

    You need to use common sense to decide whether to put a certain picture online. You might think that it's just a picture and it's not going to do any harm, but many people all over the world are exposed to that picture and they can over react to what they see. Then, you can end up in some serious trouble.

    What you put online the world will see it . So if you put a picture online it should be some thing that all people can see it . Like your sister , brother , parents and people you do not know .

    I dont think that she should have got suspended from cheerleading because like they said on the cnn news it could have been the girl next to her in the picture. unless they know for sure they shouldnt have done anything.

    i think it is very important to make sure you ask your parent before even going online. they can tell you what is safe and not safe and they probably will tell you not to put any of your information on there.

  1039. AllisonKate

    I believe that a picture like that is personal. If you know that it may cause trouble don't put it on facebook. But i also understand it is wrong to suspend her from cheerleading, if the picture was misunderstood.

    I think to myself, if i would want a little kid age 4 or my greatgrandmother to see it, why should i post it. When in doubt do a quick turn around and dont do it.

    Dont expect anything you put online to be private. Somebody always see's what you post or put online. It's called the world wide web for a reason.

    it is bad to put your personal info online because like on the news she was a cheerleader but think about what would have happened if she was head cheerleader. that would be a total disaster.

    I think if you wouldnt want your pastor,Mother, or dad to see what you put online you shouldn't put it at all online then. I also think its a bad in fluence on young children.

    I think that school officials shouldn't focus on facts from Facebook and other social networking sites. They should be worried about what happens in the school and not outside the school. If she didn't come to school drunk or hungover it shouldn't be that big a deal.

    October 27, 2010 at 5:04 pm |

    What we post online will eventually get out to anyone who wants to see it, so if you wouldnt want to say it in front of your parents, siblings, or a group of people, then dont post it at all.

  1051. Nicole

    i don't think that the girl should have gotten suspended from cheerleading because it wasn't her that was drinking. I think that the school that she goes to should have put more effort into investigating this before kicking her of the squad.

    October 27, 2010 at 5:12 pm |
  1052. Valenator

    When you are thinking about putting something online, think of who you might not what to see or read it. Also, think about the consequences that might occur if that person saw or read what you posted. This is common sense.

    I think that keeping private pictures should be banned from any website due to sex affenders throughout the United States.

    You should not post anything online that you would not want a college or a job you are applying for to see . Also anything you would not want your parents to see you should not post online.

    i know teachers go on face book to but it is not there problem or there time when the student is not at school to be punishing that is like a teacher comiing to YOUR house (not there classroom) and telling you what to do it is their job to make sure you are not doing drugs or in contact with any drugs on SCHOOL PROPERTY it is not there business what happens at home now what you put online you should always be carful with i think there should be an end to what you put but online but it is the parents job on what happens at home

    i dont think that schools should be able to punish you for things that you do in your personal life. If you post something on a social networking site schools should be able to suspend you because they dont like it. Administrators should focus more on things that happen in school.

    I think that girl in Ohio didn't know the consequences when she put that picture on Facebook.We should all think before we post something online.Once its online, it never comes off. whenever you want to post something online,ask yourself,"Would I say or do this in front of my family or friends?"

    October 27, 2010 at 5:37 pm |
  1064. Kole

    If they don't have enough evidence they shouldn't kick her off the team,and they don't show the whole picture to she whose arm is the sister or the younger girl,but I wouldn't show pictures just that fast.

    October 27, 2010 at 5:42 pm |
  1065. Daniel

    The school shouldn't of suspend her because the photo was not taken on school property so the school shouldn't of gotten involved. If they were concerned about a student getting into drugs of alcohol they should take further investigation into the problem. But this could all be avoided by watching what you put on line.

    October 27, 2010 at 5:46 pm |

    You should never post any photo that shows drugs or alcohol any where near you or around you because people might translate that in the wrong way as in that you may have used them. That doesn't mean that you can't take pictures like that just don't post them on any site

    October 27, 2010 at 5:48 pm |
  1068. Lexci

    When deciding what to put online I think its important to stop and think, 'How would I feel if my parents or teachers saw or heard me say this?' Everything you put on line is able to be seen by everyone. Be careful what you say online because everyone can read it and what you say may really hurt someone else's feelings and you could end up getting in alot of trouble for it. Even if you have a privacy setting there are ways certain people could end up seeing your personal entries. So always STOP and THINK before you POST!!!

    i think that what you put online is your own business and school administartors should not be looking at there students. but if you wouldnt show it to your family members or you mother then you shouldnt post it online. you need to watch what you say bu tyou shouldnt have people watching you.

    Make sure you think if the picture relates to anything. If it looks like you're doing something nobody else wants to see make sure you DON'T do it. People ignore the words do not and don't.

    there are multiple harmful people out there and the internet can put your life and your love ones life in danger.

    I think if you wouldn't say it or do it in person then you shouldn't put it online either. You never know what you put online could do to you or someone else.

    I know from having a Facebook account that there are certain things you put on line and certain things you don't. When your uploading photos or comments or even statuses, you need to think to yourself and make sure what you are about to do won't negatively affect anyone in any way. Also, you need to be smart about what is appropriate and what is not. Anything you put online, you should feel comfortable being shown on the front page of the newspapers for the society to see. If there is something you are wavering about putting up online, you shouldn’t put up, even if you just second guess yourself for a minute. You may not always think of it right away, but one inappropriate picture could ruin someone’s future.

    This article brings me back to when i first made a Facebook. When i made a Facebook, I knew in the back of my head that somehow my comments will become viral to my friends and people i dont know. After i read about what happened to this girl i came up with a way to make myself more private. I made myself more private by making my pictures and comments viewable to only my friends. I personally think that this is one of the most useful tools that any social website should have.

Why should I put something on line if I can't trust the website. Some people can, I can't. What if a staker sees some things on line and tries to find you and kill? Online you can still be bullied, so create a fake ID. THis way people can't hunt you down. For examples, stalkes, bullies, and your schools.

    I think schools should respect your privacy online. It is your personal life and if the school is going to look at your profile they should at least ask permission from an adult first. But yet I think you should watch what you're putting online. You never know who's going to see it and if it might affect yourself.

    When you put something online it could start as a cool thing. But could make you end up in court. Or in this case get you kicked out of a sport.

    I think you should be careful what you put online because you could get arrested or in some other form of "hot water'.But I dont think that school adminastrators or police officers should de looking for people to bust.That would be disreaspectful and crule.other students are allowed to look at what you post,but thay should not be printing it out or emailing it to people to embarras or "snitch"on someone,thats just mean!So be carful for what you put online for those reasons.

    What I half to say is to think before you post. If you wouldn't say something bad in person don't do it online. On Facebook if you post a bad picture you could get in deep trouble.
    DON'T DO ANYTHING BAD ONLINE!!!

    I feel that what you put online is your responcibility, it effects yu as a person. Though I do believe that the things you post on websites such as facebook should be left to be dealt with by parents or if needed police. Schools should not be allowed to go onto private pages on unrelated school websites and punish the children unless the students accessed this website and posted this from the school grounds.

    I think that you should really think about the things you put on the internet. You should really ask yourself if what you are going to put up is going to end up hurting you in the feature or inappropriate. This is the way i decide whether i should but something you or just lave it. i have had to deal with this kind of situation before and form all of the stuff i have heard it really makes me think twice. just like with the cheerleader, i think it was really unfair to have had her kicked off the squad. the school didn't even hear the full out story and just went with what they saw. i believe this should make people more cautious of things you do even though it was not fair what they did to the girl.

    Many people and I understand the meaning of freedom of expression yet that right is under your control. You can' be mad if someone does something you don't like or would ever want to happen to you but once you put it on the computer EVERYONE and ANYONE CAN have access to it. Prevent future regrets caused by bd dicisions!

    Its your choice and though what to put online... You gotta think before you do something, doesn't matter what it is. One mess up and the whole world can see it. You have to be smart and wise when it comes to putting pictures on the internet.

    You should only post things on Facebook if you would feel comfortable to talk about it with friends,family, and neighbors you know you can trust. But in the long run, you should'nt do it in the first place. The picture implies that you are doing something that you should'nt be doing.

  1127. Adrianna

    I think it is really important to look at a what you are about to put on the internet before you do, because it may offend some people. Also because you just might get into a little bit of trouble. But I also think that the School Administrators should NOT be looking at your private pictures and talking to you without parental consent. It was a bad move and i would be very upset if i were them.

    October 27, 2010 at 8:47 pm |
  1128. alex!!!!

    what you put online isnt always the best choice. it all depends on who and what the picture is of. You shouldn't put a picture or a post that shows you were drinking or taking drugs even if you were faking it because some people can take it the wrong way

    You hear from teachers and parents, "Be involved in activities at school" then you come to school one day to find out that your suspended from the cheer squad for something on Facebook? I think your facebook is your facebook. Adminastrators shouldn't suspend you from the cheer squad for one "bad" picture. Espically when your mom "okay-ed it".

    Whenever there is something that is school inappropriate you should be able to know it shouldn't be put online. You control what is put online by you, so try to make it appropriate.

    I think it is obivous what we should put online and what we shouldn't. Anything you put on Facebook or MySpace will be seen, so if you put something you don't want to be seen by other people than use your common sense. Most people I know like to keep some photos private. I think it was wrong of her to put the picture where everyone can see and, but she should not have gotten in that much trouble. The school shouldn't have even interfered. They weren't at the party and they just heard from someone who maybe took the photo the wrong way. She did say that her parents and police where there monitoring the party. I think it was stupid of the school to take the sport that she loved away for puting a picture on the Internet.

    When you post something online you need to think about if it will jeoprodize a future career opportunity. People don't understand that they are being watch closer than they think. You need to set a postitive example for everyone including your friends, family, and coworkers. This can be done by making sure you are only putting tasteful and appropriate things online.

    Well, a picture is worth a thousand words. Everyone has their own say on what happens in a picture. Think of it like this: if you can go to church, or any public place, and say what the picture is and what you were doing, then people might start to believe you.

    It stupid to punish someone for something they did not do. And even if she had it in her hand doesnt mean that she was drinking because her parents were there and they said she did not drink. some people need to stop getting into other people's business and it also wasn't right to kick that girl off the team for something that she did at party if it wasn't even bad.

    how would i decide wats right , puting things up online?
    i been on facebook, alot of times, even hours
    i know what is best to be posted,
    if you try to show something to the other world, just make sure, if it is ok.
    but if you try to show off, than don't show things that you really want it to be, so the whole world won't see it.
    if i was you i would just forget about posting things, && just start worrying what would others would say.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:41 pm |
  1163. Jack

    When deciding whether or not to put a picture online, my information online, or anything like that, I always think to myself, could someone that I dont know or have and relation to in the world find this picture/information. Obviously, if I am ordering, for example, a new shirt from Nike, i would not be afraid to put down my address, considering Nike is a reliable, well-known company. So, any large companies, such as Nike, Adidas, Apple, and Reebok, I would be fine with putting down my information. However, websites like MySpace, facebook, and Twitter could be dangerous to have your personal information or even pictures up. So, when it comes to social networking sites, i am very careful of what I put down. I never put down my information, especially my address and phone number, and i don't upload pictures of myself. When following those rules, it is easy for me to decide what and what not to put on the internent.

    October 27, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  1164. Karina

    If you can't show it to your little brother or sister without them asking questions then don't put it online. Everyone can see it and it could ruin your life if the wrong person sees it. It's just not worth it.

  1166. Seth

    I dont think there is any safe or secure way to post pictures on the Internet especially on Facebook. If the photo seems like it may cause trouble just dont put it on the Internet! I can understand why the High School Administrator suspened her but i think the parents should have been notified and brought to the school before the girl was suspended.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:31 pm |
  1167. Aman

    What you think you post on facebook or myspace is only visible to your freinds, your wrong. Anything you post on the internet is there for the world to see. It was wrong for the school to suspend that girl from the cheerleading squad. The mother said that there was a deputy sheriff present at the wedding, and that the girl was questioned without her parents present, which is most definitely wrong.

    October 27, 2010 at 11:35 pm |

    Carl, i think that it is very issue for what people put online. I think it is more of a problem with teenage girls rather than boys. Parents should have the right to look over what their child is putting on before they get the chance to upload it.

  1171. Paige

    My class and I have talked about it and most of the class thinks thta it was none of the schools business and like you said someone told them so someone in the school didn't like the person it happened to if that person didn't tell then the school would have never found out about it.

    For me, it is okay to put pictures, blogs, or any type of information online as long as it doesn't make any viewer uncomfortable, of course within laws or ethics. One case of mine, for example, was that my friend got angry because there were my girlfriend who he also liked at that time in it when I put a photo which I intended to show just a snap of my room on SNS.
    What I mean is that perception always varies among people even toward the same object.

    A couple years ago when the Vanessa Hudgens photo scandal came out my mother had a long talk with me and the main things she said were: If you wouldn't want your Grandmother to see it don't put it online. And if you make a bad choice it WILL effect you later on in life.

    I would happen to disagree with that. What you should put online should not be used against you or cause you to be suspended from an activity that you really like. Frankly, I think that what happened with the student is very inappropriate and the principal should not stop her from cheerleading and let her back on the team. He cannot prove that the picture was true and he should ask the people that were at the wedding to find out what happened.

    I personally believe that there is some what of a limit as to what you put on the internet. You can choose how you behave on the internet, and if you just so happen not to behave well, there most likely will be punishment. If you behave on the internet, your life will resume as is.

    People should think before pictures online where everybody can see. If it isn't something you want everyone to see, then dont put it up. you should decide whether its appropriate or not. Someone could find out that you had posted the picture, and your future will be ruined.

    Well it depends, if only your friends are gonna see it, then its alright. If there's somebody you don't know who is seeing it, they could tell anybody they wanted about whatever it is you posted. Honestly I think anybody can post what they want.

    I think that I know what is the right thing to put online is "Would you say the same thing to that person or peoples faces if not than don't do it. Or if something sexual NEVER put it online because it is ALWAYS there it can never be deleted.

    October 28, 2010 at 10:54 am |
  1195. santo

    Think of it this way, if a picture has drug, alcohol or sexual references, probably not a good idea to put it online. Doesn't matter how old you are. Facebook is global, everyone can see what you put online, not just your friends. Remember that and be cautious about what you post. If you don't want it to be seen, don't post it!!!!!

    I think that how you decide what to be put on line would be to think about would you ever show this picture to your family, or maybe even younger siblings or would you approve of one of your best friends or close friends putting this online? Would you be okay with the hole world having acess becuase once you put something online it's there forever and can never really be deleted, you would have to think about that, if there is anything bad that could cause an issue or conflict or implie making fun of someone or something then I would save your self the trouble and not post it becuase everyone talks and the word could get back to someone who you don't want to see it, so think about what your doing.

    I think that you are responsible for what you put online, but also the school really shouldn't be concerned about what you put on your facebook or myspace. And that picture that the girl got kicked off her cheer squad for was not that bad, she should be able to be on her cheer squad.

    Deciding what to put on line should not be up to kids under their parents house hold. The Parents should start taking action over what kids do online, such as parental blocks. Kids should also know whats appropriate and what is not by how they were raised, if they were raised correctly they should know better if not, the child and the parent will face consequences.

    I'm a bold guy. I say what I mean and I mean what I say, despite the opinions of others. I believe that everyone has the right to say or post what they want. After all, we have freedom of speech, and folks in other countries would give a lot to have the rights we have. School and personal life should be separate. Now, I can't say I'm an advocate of drinking(or drugs, or smoking), as I'm STRONGLY against those things, but it's her life. There's not even proof that she drank at all, or that she was even holding the bottle. I heard something about her having said that she did in the school report, but that's a little sketchy.

    I have a Facebook account that I love to upload pictures on to, but when I'm deciding what to put on there I think about who is in the pictures and who is looking at the pictures. Is it going to put me or anyone else to shame? My mom, sister and brother all have Facebook. I would never put anything on that would make them ashamed to have me under their "family" tab.

    You should know what you should put online. If you’re in high school you should know you can’t have a picture with beer in it. Of course you will in get trouble. If you are an adult it’s okay to have a picture of beer, you’re an adult you can do what you want.

    What you put online is totally up to you. However you need to consider what is inappropriate. The whole world can see what you post online. Even bosses, sometimes they will not pick you for a certain job if you look like a big party person. People need to think and rethink what the post online because everyone can see it. If you wouldn’t willingly show it to your parents, teachers, and grandparents it probably is inappropriate.

    I think it was aqn invasionof the fgirls privacy. You can't tell people what someone did out of school and get kicked off the cheerleading squad. She should of never gotten in that much trouble with her mother around.

    When I decide what I put online I look at it and think.. would my parents be happy if i put this on? Will I be happy to say that at my age that was me doing whatever I am doing? Or here's a even better one, will my sports and academic coaches be proud to say I am a learner of theirs? Would my school be happy to see this? When I put things online I make sure I wont regret it, everyone makes mistakes but they are not mistakes if you learn from them. But that still does not make it right.

    I think it was too extreme for the school to suspend her from the team. As she said, it was her sister that was holding the alcohol, not her. The school don't have the right to search her. Also, it is not a good enough reason to assume that she was drinking. However, she should've been careful with the pictures.

    I belive, that us kids do have a privalage on the computer. It's not a right. When you post something on the computer, you should excpect people to find out. But whoever gave that picture to the princable, that's not their right. If the princable saw it on their own, that would be a diffrent thing. But when being in the computer is a privalage, you shouldnt post that stuff. If it was a right you could put whatever you want on there. But it's not. So you should really watch what you put on the computer.

    Here's what i think if you wouldn't show the picture to your mother or father then don't put it on line!!! But seriously posting things online that may be just some silly little pictures to you can be more than just some silly little pictures to someone else.

    You should only post things that will not hurt you in future. These days people think that what you post online will not be seen by others or it can get deleted. But technically all the things can be seen deleted or not. Like any other things you do you first think about it and then do it. Like they say think before you do anything so always think before you post things online and also think what would people think about you if you posted any inappropriate things online.

    Personally, I think people need to watch what they put online. When girls dress a certain way, people view them as something they may not be! And vise viersa. If your parents don't approve, then dont put it on facebook. And if your parents allow it, then thats a shame....

    I think there should be a limit on what you could put on social networking sites. There are kids on those sites and what would parents think when they find out that thier friends profile picture is innappropriate. As for school, they should mind thier own business.

    If a teacher is going to waste their time watching one of their students on facebook rather than watching over there school, then they shouldn't be a teacher. I don't see what that girl did wrong, all i know is that the teacher needs something better to do.

    I think that was wrong for her to put it online... because DUH you don't take pictures that could get you in trouble at all! You also should think about other people. Because if you take a picture that could ruin anyone's reputation. She could've been a really good cheerleader. But no, she had to go and take some dumb picture that got her kicked off her cheerleading squad.

    I think that if you know that it is inappropraite, than don't put it online. It's bad enough what people say to you online sometimes, so don't make it worse by having them make fun of your pictures.

    October 28, 2010 at 4:43 pm |
  1241. Paul

    My responce to this ussue is that the girl should have thought about what she was doing and how it could affect her out of school activities before she posted the picture. Also, I dissagree with her harsh punishment because everyone makes mistakes and thats how people learn from making wrong decisons. Obviously this girl didnt expect that some people who viewed her picture would think of it as harmful to herself and her schools image. Overall, I think this girl did wrong but hopefully learned her lesson and will be careful when posting pictures online.

    October 28, 2010 at 4:56 pm |
  1242. Ally

    I could see this both ways, I could see the school saying we found this and you are not allowed to be doing things like this. I could also see it her way because it's kind of like school's getting into her personal life, and school isn't meant to be part of your personal life.

    Teens should be responsible for what they put online for they have no way of knowing who is going to see it. If someone is taking pictures and you are doing something you dont want other people to see dont do it! Parents also should be paying attention to what their kids put on their facebooks, myspace, and twitters to monitor them and be sure to talk to them about it and make sure that it wont happen again.

    October 28, 2010 at 5:27 pm |

    The school should not worry about it because she did not drink on school campus and she did not show up drunk at school, so the school had nothing to do about it. Plus the school did not have enough evidence, you could not even see who was holding it and there were plenty eye witnesses at the party ask one of them what really happened.

I have been tought by my mother and my school to watch what I put up, i find that is picture of this girl at the wedding inosent and the school has done wrong. It is just a picture of a girl having fun at her sister's wedding. they should not be punishing this girl for taking a picture with someone else who was drinking not her! Another things is that, she was with family the whole time she was at the wedding its not like she had gone out with friends and they wer all drinking in the picture. there are way worse things that the school should be worried about then this picture.

    Quite honestly, anyone who can use a blog or social networking site knows that what you leave is there forever. These people aren't stupid, they are just naive and not thinking of what might happen in the future.

    It's an invasion of her privacy for the school to go through her facebook. She wasn't on school property. But in a way, it's also her fault for putting up a picture that she probably knew was bad. When you post online, use common sense and set rules for yourself because it affects your future.

    I think that the punishment she got was fair. It wasnt that bad that she should have been suspended. Her picture could look like shes drinking to some people. She put it online, so now its up to the school to decide if it looks like shes drinking or not.

    According to the fourth Amendment, people have the right of privacy, they can't be searched without probable cause. But i think that the things you put on Facebook are not privacy. Because the purpose of putting things on Facebook is to show people what you are doing recently. That teenager should think about the results before she put anything on Facebook. When people browsing internet, they just focus on result and ignore reasons. If they see a teenage hold beer, they would think he must drink alcohol. So the whole thing is the teenager's wrong, she courts trouble for herself

    Ages 1-10 should partly know what to put online.Ages 11 and up, should know what not to put online. So if she was drinking i don't think she would put it on there. Some websites ask you for your age and people are always watching what you put on the internet in case its illegal. So that says the cops know how old she is, and if she did drink it there would be a good chance she would be breaking the law. In fact its absolute.

    October 28, 2010 at 9:12 pm |

    What you put online will probably be seen by the whole world. So you should not put personal stuff online. People will see it and show it to other people and your personal stuff will be seen by people that you probably don't even know!

    Well I think you decide by what other people could think, Reactions to the material, and what can happen if its not good. for example I would not put a picture of myself holding a beer or near a beer unless I was able to drink. Everything not inappropriate is usually OK.

  1289. Calista

    Well, it all depends on what privacy you set on your facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc. You can't say they that you had no privacy because you are able to set privacy settings online. It's your choice on what you put online. That's why adults always say to watch what you post or do online because something bad will always rebound to you. Also, I don't think other people ratting out each other is not a good idea because the situation is not always harmful. It may be a joke or only posted for fun. The school district doesn't have to always get involved into everything unless it is very important. On this case, I don't think she was actually drinking. I believe that she was only taking the picture for fun. There is no reason to be all so dramatic about it, but you may never really know. Either way if she was drinking that bottle of alcohol or not, this shows how effective posting such things online are.

  1292. Parker

    I think if you are old enough to go on a website and post something, you should be able to decide what is okay to put online. By now, you should be old enough to know what is bad to post and what is good to post. If someone has the slightest bit of hesitation on what to post, then they should not post it. The problem in defining what is “appropriate.” Obviously, the Ohio cheerleader thought the picture was appropriate, but someone in “authority” did not. So, while a teenager might think something is appropriate, they might want to ask themselves if an adult would agree.

    October 28, 2010 at 10:14 pm |

    I think that adults at school should not go that deep in peoples lives. All students should have there privacy, and Teachers or coaches shouldn't be exploiting there students like that, you don't see students exploiting teachers like that.

  1294. Bethy

    When you put things on the internet, they are public. By definition the World Wide Web is accessible to the world. If you don't want to create a bad image for yourself, don't post things that could incriminate you or offend someone. Everyone can see it and even though you may not believe a picture or status update is inappropriate, millions of others may think otherwise and within a matter of minutes you have developed a bad reputation.

    Even if you are ok, maybe t he other person will get hert because you put something about them.But if ti's not about anyone but you, you can put it on the internet.

    If you wouldnt take a certain picture of yourself to school because you could get in trouble, or if you would be embarassed to show it to a friend, teacher, or an adult, then you shouldnt post it on facebook.

    The question I like to ask myself is, "Will I want the viewers to see this picture and not think of me as the same good person?" Facebook is not the same as it was when it first came out and now is even more public than ever. I now realize that my teenage friends are not the only ones as my "friends" anymore that now family, teachers, ect. are featured on the social website. The bottom line is to not post anything in which you would not want absolutely EVERYONE to see.

    October 28, 2010 at 11:31 pm |
  1302. Dillon

    I think that she should be more careful about what she puts on Facebook or any chat site. Even if she didn't hold the beer or drink it it looks like she was holding the beer.

    hackers sometimes get into kids accounts and do things, things like puting innapropriate language on the network. So what im saying if a child says something that doesnt sound normal it probably has a hacker involved.

    October 29, 2010 at 12:17 am |
  1304. Moore

    Well, things post online which shouldn't get involved in anyone's privacy.

    October 29, 2010 at 12:54 am |

    If you wouldn't do it in person you shouldn't do it online.

  1306. Ramachan

    People shouldn't put stuff on the internet unless they realize the worst case scenario. What happened to this girl would be considered as worst case scenario. Think BEFORE you act, not after.

    October 29, 2010 at 1:11 am |
  1307. Morgan

    I check it over and make sure it isn't mean or gives out information.

  1308. Andrew

    I think that posting pictures on the Internet is wrong. It isn't our opinion that matters on what the picture represents of yourself. If it looks like a bad picture, then it not only affects you, but your school. However, I don't think she should've gotten suspended from cheerleading because she wasn't the one actually holding the alcohol in the picture.

    October 29, 2010 at 6:39 am |
  1309. Damon

    What you put is totally up to you. Whatever you feel comfortable with; but emember it dosn't go away.

    October 29, 2010 at 7:17 am |
  1310. dashaun

    I think that you should be careful of what u put online even if it is your privatcy my mom always said never put anything online that you wouldnt do in person

    October 29, 2010 at 7:52 am |
  1311. Sarranna

    Well, i think that before a child puts something online, a parent should check it out and see wether it is appropriate for others to see, or if you should not post it at all. Because us, as parents, it is our job to moniter what our children put online.

    October 29, 2010 at 8:15 am |
  1312. McKenzie

    I think the web is a way for students to express themselves. You should also be careful because what you will be there for lifeand anyone could see it.

    October 29, 2010 at 8:42 am |
  1313. Ana

    I think that if you post something online, think about it before you put it. I don't think that she should have gotten into that much trouble, but I think it could get worse. At least she wasn't suspended from school! Or EXPELLED!!! But still, people need to think about who is going to see it BEFORE they post it.

    October 29, 2010 at 8:43 am |
  1314. Ana

    If you think anyone would even think that, don't put it online. Its bad enough that she got suspended from something she loves, next it may be expelled from school!

    October 29, 2010 at 8:44 am |
  1315. Logan

    The things you put online should be private, Just because you see a picture or something doesn't mean it is true. There is an old saying that states"Never judge a book by its cover," and I personally have found the truth to that out. Anything you put online is out for the world, however teachers have no business in your private life.

    October 29, 2010 at 8:57 am |
  1316. Brooke

    I personally think that you are fully responsible for what you put online. If you think of the consequences first then you won't have to figure out what is appropriate and what is not. Once you post something on Facebook it is hard for people to resist commenting and then it is even harder to get rid of the picture or blog. Therefore, if you think that you do not want your classmates, peers, and family to see what you commented, bloged or posted then you you shouldn't even think about posting it.

    October 29, 2010 at 9:22 am |
  1317. Amy

    i think the school was being harsh w/ her, she shouldnt have gotten suspended from the cheerleading team and frankly i dont think they should be the ones dealing with it becasue it is off of the school propreity and if the teachers or what ever talked to her with out her parents then that is also wrong.

    October 29, 2010 at 9:26 am |
  1318. Emily

    We think that she should not have got susepended from the cheerleading team. But we think it was stupid if whoever took a picture of that, THEN posted it on facebook. Even though she wasn't the one who was even holding the bottle, it was her sister. It was just that the picture was cut off at the bottom, so you couldn't see that there arms were crossed.

    October 29, 2010 at 9:35 am |
  1319. Kody

    Well i think that you shouldn't put anything online that could come back to you like a picture of you wearing a school sweatshirt or showing something you wouldn't show in front of your parents.

    October 29, 2010 at 10:06 am |
  1320. Vic

    I think you should watch what you put online, becuase once you put it on there you can't take it off. Also stuff sreads fast before you now it everyone will be talking about it so why put it on

    October 29, 2010 at 10:26 am |
  1321. Miranda

    Honestly.. What you post online anyone can see andit doesn't matter how private you try to make it anyone could see it. Think about it when you save photos to your facebook anyone can press the right key and save the photo to there computer and show it to there friends and pass it on and on. If you don't want the world to see it, don't post it.

    October 29, 2010 at 10:26 am |
  1322. auberon

    i think think you should watch what you put online because, stuff gets around fast, ruins your reputation. there's people that can get see what your dion, and it could result in somethign serious

  1326. Jackie

    I think that people should watch what they put online.
    Alot of things are posted that many people dont want.
    So, be careful what you tell friends or post online.
    cause things can be hurtful.

    October 29, 2010 at 10:39 am |
  1327. svannah

    You should post whatever you want on the internet,but make sure your not judging people and don't say anything that may make someone be put down or something that's inappropriate also.

    October 29, 2010 at 10:41 am |
  1329. oscar

    people should think more on what they want to post on the internet so they know they don't get in to much trouble if it is bad for other people.

  1330. Eli

  1332. KYRA JESSE TESLA ASPEN JOSH KEITH MR. WOLTING TAYLOR LOREN

    We think that what you put on line out of school should not effect what happens in school. If you don't want people to see it don't put it on there.

    October 29, 2010 at 11:13 am |
  1333. Joey

    I think she deserved to be kicked off but the school should really have more to concintrate on then this.

    October 29, 2010 at 11:16 am |
  1334. Dylan

    Before i post something i think if i would say it in front of my parents or grandparents. You have to make sure it is okay to post online because once you post it, it is on the internet forever. You need to be careful of the pictures you post also. You also you to be careful how you say so that way someone doesn't take it the wrong way and get offended.

    October 29, 2010 at 11:48 am |
  1335. Iliana

    You can put on facebook pictures and block certain people from seeing your them, but I still think you should becareful with what you put.

  1337. LaNia

    I think that if you wont show your parents what you put on there you shouldn't put it on there at all. If your not sure about putting it or not i think the best idea is not to.

    October 29, 2010 at 1:22 pm |
  1338. Tylar

    I think what you put online is your choice. Just be ready for whatever consequence comes.

  1344. Augie

    If you have to hide it from your parents then don't put it on the internet. Some parents know how to look through your stuff on the computer.

    I Think its not thatbig of aproblem, if its anybodys fault its her parents for letting her post it

  1346. jerrell

    I think you shouldnt say anything that u wouldn't say to your grandparents or parent but i dont think the school should be all in your buissness.

    October 29, 2010 at 1:35 pm |
  1347. clarence

    i would not put anything online. Cause watever u put online. can be found and be used against you.

    October 29, 2010 at 1:37 pm |
  1348. deontay

    Personally, I think that the school was wrong. If the parent allowed the picture to be posted and not deleted, why would there be any problem? She wasnt taking the photo on school campus, why was the school snooping around in her personal life? Its not right! It violates one of our amendments for sure, if I was her I would take it to court its not fair! But,
    I do think students should limit offensive pictures though. Parents should also monitor students/teenagers what they put online because you never know who is looking!

    October 29, 2010 at 1:37 pm |
  1349. jerrell

    i think that you shouldnt put something on there that you wouldnt say to you mom but i dont think the school should be all in your buissnes and you shouldnt get in trouble by your school let the parents deal with it

    October 29, 2010 at 1:38 pm |

    i think that as long as its appropreate then its ok. if its nude or has any gang\cursing words or signs thats not cool. it just shows a bad reputation on your self and it makes u look cool for a little while but later it will bite you back and who knows what will happen to you next. just watch what you put on the internet because it could start something or get you into ALOT of trouble!!

    October 29, 2010 at 1:45 pm |
  1353. ericka

    i think it is really wrong for the school people looking at kids things online.but im also on the school side because if dont want know one to see it then dont post it online because people might see it.

  1354. Brehonna

    I think it is crazy for that to have gotten in big trouble for her sisters bottle of beer that was in her sisters hand and not hers, especially when she wasn't even drinking it.

    October 29, 2010 at 2:34 pm |
  1355. Mim

    It is important to know if the students in a school are alcohol-free, and whatever is put on the world wide web will be seen, everywhere. Though the principal should have told the parents about meeting with the student.

    October 29, 2010 at 3:19 pm |
  1356. mellisa

    i think that people should set an example for others to follow and not post pics like that on and other webset let alone facebook. if you think about it its not a save place to post things if you think that only u and your friends can see that then your wrong anybody can see the things that you post on facebook.

    October 29, 2010 at 3:47 pm |
  1357. Annie

    Seriously, That person at school said that you can only be suspended from having posession of alcohol. She wasn't possesing it . It was in her mothers hand. There are so many people in High school that do worse things that drink, maybe we should worry more about that!

    October 29, 2010 at 3:53 pm |
  1358. Eli

    you want to be carful what you put on the internet. what you put on ther reflects you, your personality, and reputation. i know from older friends that employers will check a person's myspace and facebook before adding them. so be carefull or you might not get that dream summer job.

    October 29, 2010 at 3:57 pm |
  1359. Ruth

    yea she should be suspended from highschool and with a highly punishment... thats what i think they should do to her. She should be very careful what she puts online ^& she should put only appropiate things on facebook

    October 29, 2010 at 3:58 pm |
  1360. Ellen

    I think I know what is good or what is not good to put online becausae of what my school told me. They told me like not putting bad photos or your address. The person that sees it might come to steal you or hurt you

    October 29, 2010 at 3:59 pm |
  1361. Dominique

    I Think That You Should Watch What You Put Online Because You Might Put Something That You Will Regret In The Future,You Should Never Put Your Adress Or Anything Personal Like That Because You Never Know Who Can See It,You Also Should Never Put Bad Things About People Online.You Should Be Appropriate Pictures Online And Not Inappropriate Pictures Online!I Don't Think She Should Have Got In Trouble Either It Had To Do Out Side of School And Not Inside.Her Parents Should Have Handled It.

    October 29, 2010 at 3:59 pm |

    i say just be more cautious in the future. people don't seem to get the concept that if something is put online, EVERYONE will be able to see it one way or another.

    October 29, 2010 at 4:00 pm |
  1364. Luis

    It’s up to each individual to post what they want, but for every action there is a consequence. If you wouldn’t show a picture to someone in person why should you post it up for the world to see? If it embarrasses you don’t post it!

    October 29, 2010 at 4:01 pm |
  1365. marcus

    EVERYBUDY!!! should really show thier pics in person to the person u wanna give it to instead of showing the intire world and if you do post it.Make sure if u really want to share it to the world and appropriate images on the internet when you post it.

    October 29, 2010 at 4:02 pm |

    PEOPLE ALREADY KNOW WHAT THEY CAN AND CANNOT PUT ONLINE SO NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO TELL THEM WHAT KIND OF THINGS THEY SUPPOSED TO PUT ONLINE.

    October 29, 2010 at 4:03 pm |
  1368. Roxanne

    It all depends on what the photo was. anything that you post on facebook is for everyone to see but yes,you do gotta think twice before what u wanna post and ALWAYs be careful because you may never know if anything will get out of hand or who is looking through your page. *not unless your page is put on private and just for u and your friends too see* if u put it on public *which some people do* then yes it tends to be that everybody can see it and see what your doing

    October 29, 2010 at 4:05 pm |

  1371. Nikole

    I make sure I put what I would not think could embarres me in the future so that way i don't have to worry about it later and life can go on as i know it now.

  1372. Danae

    i think that people don't understand that what you put online can go with you for the rest of your life! i mean say your'e twenty or so and you give the guy your resime he can go to your facebook and myspace and see what pictures and comments you posted and most of them won't be good! you need to be careful because what you post can affect you in the near future!

    October 29, 2010 at 4:12 pm |

    what we put online is up to us. If you get in trouble for it there is no one eles to blame but us.

    I agree....you should not post things on the internet that you do not want others to see; but come on, people! What ever happened to our rights? We live in america, don't we? The school COMPLETELY overreacted!

    October 29, 2010 at 5:08 pm |
  1378. Eva

    The Whole world sees what you put online one way or another. If you don't want people to know ALL of your business, don't put it out there for the world to see.

    October 29, 2010 at 5:11 pm |
  1379. Lexi

    I think about my future! If I think before I post anything. I don't want to offend anyone! What you post reflects on you and the people you hang out with. Also, I think you should mak eyour profile only visible by friends!

    October 29, 2010 at 5:12 pm |
  1380. TYLER

    I think people should think before they act, So don't put say or post or even when they upload a picture.So all i have to say to everyone think before you act

    October 29, 2010 at 5:23 pm |
  1381. Hilsan

    i think what you put online is not safe. But you'll never know who will see it .This is a really serois matter.

    October 29, 2010 at 5:31 pm |
  1382. Claire

    There are many reasons how to decide what to put online. One example for how to decide what to put online is that if you wouldn't say something in front of the person, then don't put it online. Another example is that you should only post things online that won't embarrass you our that you don't mind anyone seeing like other people on the internet you don't know online or your parents. And the last example is if you post a picture online you would want to make sure it's appropriate since a teacher could find out and get you suspended. That's how I think you could decide what to put online.

    October 29, 2010 at 5:54 pm |
  1383. Pierce

    In my opinion just because you have a picture of something on the internet that may not seem appropriate to someone it gives no one the right to suspend a student because of a photo when they have no background information on what happened and no concrete evidence on said alcohol actually belonging to them

    October 29, 2010 at 5:59 pm |
  1384. Jacob

    I just put on the stuff that I believe my parents agree with. If my parents say its okay for me to do it, then I do it, it's not that difficult.

    October 29, 2010 at 6:21 pm |
  1385. Ravyn

    You should only put stuff online if you know its not good to post and remember it will be viewed by millons of people.

    October 29, 2010 at 6:24 pm |
  1386. Morgan

    You now what you say what goes around comes around. You should never post a picture of anyone, or YOU! Most importantly it might affect who you are and how you live. HELP A FRIEND to not do a stupid thing like that.

    October 29, 2010 at 7:06 pm |
  1387. lexi

    If it's not okay with your parents it shouldn't be on there.

    October 29, 2010 at 7:50 pm |
  1388. Freddy

    I think the school administrators should not have suspended that girl because they have no proof wether she drank the beer or not. Plus if your gunna post stuff post things you wouldn't get introuble for

    October 29, 2010 at 9:02 pm |
  1389. Misty

    Yo u don't need to put stuff online that could come back and bite you on the rear. Lets all be more carefull about what we put online.

    When I post something online I make sure that it represents something that Im proud to say that I am a part of. I believe that thats how someone decides what and what not to post online.

    October 29, 2010 at 9:37 pm |
  1393. Linda

    I think that kids under 18 should not be allowed on facebook and I don't like it at all. Really, there not even supposed to be allowed to have a facebook under the age of 15 or something. People spend to much time on it and even get addicted.

    October 29, 2010 at 9:41 pm |
  1394. Jocelyn

    What you put online can be your choice. before putting it online you should ask a a friend/family member what they think of it. if that were me i would have looked at it myself and think what will i become? so think about what you put online before you really do it.

    October 29, 2010 at 10:26 pm |
  1395. Michaela

    I don't think the school should be able to suspend you for sports just because of a picture you put online. Especially when they don't know what's going on.

    October 29, 2010 at 10:30 pm |

    kids need to be carful of what they put on the internet it will never be erased and teachers shouldnt suspend them for what they put up on myspace or facebook they have no right to its not on school properties

    Just because it looks like she is drinking beer does not mean she is her mother confirmed that her daughter was not drinking, the person who sent this in to the school must have had a reason but it was her sisters so as long as it shows that there is no way it is her beer it should be fine . The websites you can post things on like face book allows you to post what you want but if you get kicked off that's your fault but that is a personal life. if you are not aloud to mix personal with business life you shouldn't mix personal with school. it was not right for her to get kicked off the cheer team!

    October 30, 2010 at 12:40 am |
  1398. Casper

    Its not like its her beer but even if it was hers kids are always told by parents not to mix business with personal so why should she be kicked off the cheer team if it was her beer i could understand but it wasn't.

    October 30, 2010 at 12:46 am |
  1399. frank

    well first of all teachers or administrators should be more worried about what students do at school or in school than what they post on social networks or what they do on their own personal time and if your in a picture holding a beer bottle don't post it on the web because it might or will incriminate you

    October 30, 2010 at 2:48 am |

    I think that kids should express themselves online with pictures and videos.....But they need to always think ahead on what they are putting online.

    I ask my dad before i post any pictures on the internet. Then I go to my mm about it. If they both agree it is okay, I post it.

    What you posst on the internet is for everyone and anyone to see, so I post things on the internet with remission from my mom and dad. I NEVER give out any personal information.

    Think before you post stuff online. Knowing that colleges are looking at everything you post could ruin your future. It may seem funny at first but you're gonna have to pay the consequences. It's not gonna be funny then, is it?

    I think that if you post something online then you should know that the whole world can see so you would know not to post innapropriate things on the web.

    I feel it's not safe to put any pictures of drugs,or any pictures showing skin you don't want to show. If you wouldn't do it in front of a bunch of strangers, don't do or put it online. It can possibly effect you, your society, or people around you. Think a little...

    October 30, 2010 at 11:30 am |
  1408. Madison

    We need to be more careful about what we put online because we don't know who will see! I think it's not just about what pictures you put online because you could say something bad about someone and then your friends, parents, and teachers could find out and you could get in a lot of trouble or maybe even kicked off that website!! No one should get in trouble for what the put on the internet as long as they use their brain!

    its hard to tell what to do. if it looked like she was drinking then other adults might belive it and blam it on the school and parents in my deffense they did to the right thing that photo should have not been posted and none of this would have happend.

    October 30, 2010 at 12:52 pm |
  1410. Zienab

    It depends on you and your parents. Personally, I don't post any pictures online for everybody to see, but I still respect the fact that other people do, and I don't try to change them.

    October 30, 2010 at 1:23 pm |
  1411. Chris

    Why would you put something up like that unless you think it through? The people in this world are careless of what they do sometimes, so they usually don't think about the things that come after. Multiple people see it so it is easy for someone at your school to actually report it, making you get in trouble easily.

    October 30, 2010 at 1:44 pm |
  1412. TeKia

    The Internet keeps everything you post for years, even if you delete it, it's still there. So, if you post something bad, then it's gonna stick there, so the best thing is to just not do it.

    October 30, 2010 at 2:49 pm |

    You should watch what you put online because it stay there forever and it can't be removed after that and millions of people see stuff online

    no matter what you put on the internet everyone can see it. I believe FACEBOOK is the most popular website in the world. you have to use your head. don't post stuff you don't want people to see. oh, and when i said "use your head" I meant think before you post, not ram your head through the computer! 🙂 we can all enjoy the internet as long as we are all safe while doing so!!!! 🙂

    you don't put things that are bad like pics and that kind of stuff. you think before you post something that is it good for people to see it.

    What you put online should be your own business. Sure its bad but whoever did it will learn their lesson. If you don't want to fase the consequences then just don't do it.

    What's good to put online are things like music or a movie you have seen. Posting things like the latest gossip or talking about someone you dislike isn't really a good thing. Either way it depends on how it sounds whe you type it out.

    I believe privacy is very important. That girl should've been careful of what she put online. She's old enough to know that a picture of her and a bottle of beer shouldn't be posted on her Facebook or internet in general so the whole world can see it.
    She shouldn't have been suspended if there was a cop on duty! She is underaged and at a family members wedding. Her mother wouldn't allow her to do that.

    October 30, 2010 at 7:54 pm |
  1423. David

    Privacy is very important, and I wouldn't put anything online that I wouldn't want my Grandmother to see. A bottle of beer under my mouth isn't something I would post online for the whole world to see in my opinion.

    What you put online is your business, though what you put online should be monitered, it should be by your parents. Not the school.

    October 30, 2010 at 9:10 pm |
  1426. Kaitlyn

    the best way to moniter what you post online is deciding whether you would be comfortable explaining it to your parents or grandparents. i have alot of my family on facebook so i always makesure i dont post anything that would get me in trouble.

    i think it people who think that its okay to put these things online are just plain stupid because some major rumors can start bout them and the parents aren't dealing with it the right way instead there accepting it.

    October 30, 2010 at 10:44 pm |
  1429. eddie

    yell some stuff is good to put online and some stuff is just plain stupid like who would put a picture of yourself drinking beer when you know you cant drink that and you also know that your in a sport and you singed a paper that says you cant drink beer.

    October 30, 2010 at 10:50 pm |

    I think honestly that she should have gotten suspended because she should have realized if she was going to get in trouble or not

    October 30, 2010 at 11:55 pm |
  1433. Bethany

    I chose what I put online by thinking"Would my parents like this?" If the answer is no then probably shouldn't post it. Also when ever I post pictures or anything on FB I make sure that the settings are set to friends only so there is less of a chance that it will become public.

    October 31, 2010 at 1:10 am |
  1434. Danielle

    what you put online is your bussiness. Its not any of the school bussiness cause its her personal life not there's. You can also see in the picture that the other girl was clearly holding the bottle.

    October 31, 2010 at 10:37 am |
  1435. Samantha

    If u wouldn't show or do it in your class room or at home or in front of someone don't do it online.

  1437. Jeffrey

    I think that it's wrong to post pictures like that on websites such as facebook, twitter, myspace, etc.
    Instead of worrying about things that are in public, why not focus on the fact that she was doing "underage drinking"? That must be more important than a picture on facebook.

    October 31, 2010 at 4:43 pm |
  1438. natasha

    when desiding whether or not you want to post a photo online, if you are feeling doubtful then dont post it! Make sure that when posting its nothing that is:
    1) revealing yourself in any way
    2)looks like your doing something illegal or wrong
    3)bad for someone else
    4)showing where you live
    Just remember to be safe when posting online because you dont know what people out there are like! Its important to think before you post. If your really unsure ask your parents!!

    October 31, 2010 at 5:05 pm |
  1439. Leann

    if you put bad things online, it can come back to haunt you so when you take a picture with your camera and are going through them on your computor, dont think about your friends, think of what your school officials might think abut that certiant picture.

    October 31, 2010 at 5:05 pm |
  1440. Taylor

    I honestly believe that it is horrible that they would suspend her for that. Obviously they need to spend more time on drug prevention, than on a picture . They had no proof she drank anyways!

    October 31, 2010 at 5:13 pm |
  1441. Jordan

    One way to tell that you are doing something wrong is that people at school start treating you weird the next day or your parents get a phone call or e-mail. You should always becareful what you do on the internet because once it is out there you cant erase it or delete it. You may think you have but you didn't...

    October 31, 2010 at 6:26 pm |
  1442. Pauline

    What I put on Facebook is what I think there is no ethical problems with it.

    October 31, 2010 at 7:07 pm |
  1443. Sasha

    I think what people are saying about being careful what you put on the internet is completely true. But, the school had no right to punish the girl for her private business. It had nothing to do with the school or school activities so it' s not fair for them to just suspend her from activities when it doesn't concern them.

    October 31, 2010 at 8:31 pm |
  1444. Trice

    I think that they should decide is by seeing if the content is apropriet for all ages and has info discribing it

    October 31, 2010 at 9:54 pm |
  1445. Justin

    I think the cheerleader should not have been suspended from cheeringleading squad because she has the right to put any picture she wants in facebook because in fourth Amendment clearly states
    that"which guards against unreasonable searches " .I think the principal has no right to check the pictures on facebook of the girl and suspend her.

    October 31, 2010 at 10:33 pm |
  1446. Devin

    I think that people should be more aware of their internet security because if they don't, then they can have their information stolen and sold.

    November 1, 2010 at 3:27 am |
  1447. Kasey

    I wouldnt have put the picture on there. My classmates or teachers could look at it and tell what might happen in my future and how i am different at home. I wouldnt put nothing on there that would make me look rediculous and outragouse.

    November 1, 2010 at 6:48 am |
  1448. Noah

    When i post on my Facebook i look over what i just wrote and then look it over to see if it could be turned around and get me in trouble. Also if you post picture make sure they are appropriate but that is outrages how she got suspended for that picture and what see posts should be private to her.

    November 1, 2010 at 7:26 am |
  1449. Harry

    I think if you put something personal online it will never go away even if you try

    November 1, 2010 at 8:00 am |
  1450. Jazmin

    To decide if something is okay to put online you must be considerate of others people’s feelings. If what you are going to post is offensive in any way it would be the right thing to not post it at all. Nothing is private online and you never know how could be reading your blog or looking at your picture. Also putting pictures and blogs of other people online can create conflict and the right thing would be not posting them at all.

    November 1, 2010 at 9:15 am |
  1451. teresa

    I believe you shouldn't put anything online that you wouldn't want any certain person then it does belong online. But however you don't put anything illegal. & for the girl that got kicked of the cheering team, she knew the rules of the squad & whether she was drinking or not, it still doesn't matter, she would have been more careful.

    November 1, 2010 at 10:56 am |
  1452. Chelsea

    I think that its your desicion what you put online but you have to be carefull with what you put because there could be consequences or something that you didnt want anyone to find out about so people should think before they put things online or something will happen that you didnt want to happen

    November 1, 2010 at 11:37 am |

    if you put it on line than you are responsable for the outcome and what it can do to your life. if i put a pic on line i would be carful of what i do and what i say or post.

  1455. Diana

    I think the people in school should respect your privacy and you should always set your Facebook profile private unless you want the whole world to see your information.

    I believe that what you put online is your responsability. If you get teased, rude comments, and or get kicked off a website because of what you posted, its your fault no matter how you look at it.

  1458. josh

    I think it does matter what you put online because it could be something someone didnt want to see or something somebody didnt want you to put online about them.Most importantly it could also be bullying.

    November 1, 2010 at 11:40 am |
  1459. Natalie

    You have to think, that whatever you put online is what the world is going to see which, could get you into trouble. So, sometimes is better not to put certain things online.

    November 1, 2010 at 11:40 am |
  1460. Morgan

    Ithink you need to set your set your setting to private so that only your friends can see your pictures and coments. If you don't choose wisely because the hole world can see them.

    If you decide to post your privacy life online make sure no one but your freinds can see it or family members.So beaware if people that you really didn't want to know about your privacy life and they know it's because you didn't put your post on private.

    November 1, 2010 at 11:44 am |
  1468. Daniel

    Just put a decent picture up of yourself or others and think about the consequences before you do so.

    November 1, 2010 at 11:45 am |
  1469. Lauren

    What you put online the whole world can see. I thought it was stupid that the cheerleader got suspended of the team because she took a picture with beer. If she had her profile private that never would have happened to her. This is a lessonm she had learned.

    November 1, 2010 at 11:46 am |
  1470. Tiona

    I think people should realise what friends and privacy they have on there online account . because some people get the rounge expressions on many blogs, pictures & ect. so befor most people post pictures or blogs think twice of who's going to see it and what different kinds of expressions they will have against it .

    November 1, 2010 at 11:47 am |
  1471. Matthew

    I don't use mybook or facespace so I think its stupid to have those plus the friends on those websites you probaly see everyday its probaly easier to text them

    November 1, 2010 at 11:47 am |
  1472. edual

    well as long as you dont put up anything private about yourself then you'll be ok,but if you do, get ready to suffer the consequences

    November 1, 2010 at 11:48 am |
  1473. Lily

    I think you should talk it over with your parents to make sure it's apprpriate, safe and it's not going to hurt your reputation. If you put something on facebook that will hurt the number of friends you have or get you kicked out of school etc. don't do it!

    November 1, 2010 at 11:56 am |
  1474. Brie

    if you wont show it to your friends or familydont put it online where strangers can see it and you should also think about what you put online because depending on what it is people could take it completley wrong and you could get in serious trouble or into a bad situation

    You have to think about what people will think of it and think about you.And you have to make sure that its not embarrasing or bad.If it is embarrasing than anyone can see it anf they might think of you differently.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:09 pm |
  1481. Cassie

    I decide what's right and whats wrong by asking my self, " Would i show this to my whole school?" Also, if the comments get WAY too crazy, I'll just delete the picture.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:11 pm |
  1482. Brenda

    I decide what to put on my profile because i know what is appropriate.My profile would be set on private because what you put on facebook or on myspace is there property now so watch out what you put online it can haunt you forever.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:13 pm |
  1483. Tahiry

    I think that what you poste online , like if its on a website and u have it on private other people dont need to care like its your bussiness what you do not theirs . people need to start minding thier own bussiness and stay out of other peoples life. live your life not someone elses . The sudent that posted that picture she was with her parent its her personal life she wasnt on school campas so the eople at the school dont need to care, and who ever got that picture and sent it didnt have the right to do that.But i still think that you shouldnt put like crazy embarrasing pictures if u dont want people to see it then keep it to yourself and dont put it up.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:13 pm |
  1484. Teysia

    I think you should be able to put online what you like and if you dont want the world to see it or its to inappropriate then put your profile on private. Also i think that you should be careful with inappropriate pictures because just like the girl from Ohio you could face cosequences for something you may or may not have done.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:14 pm |
  1485. Francis

    What I do when I don't know is ask youself or would you show this picture to everybody.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:16 pm |
  1486. karla

    I think people should put their settings to privite so when ever some one looks it up only there friends can see it. Or so they can only see the profile picture. If I had a profile picture on any social online contact I would put a picture that does not look like myself.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:17 pm |
  1487. li$$ette

    you should really think before you put something bad online because if its a bad picture you wouldnt want no one to laugh at you it'll hurt even if makes you lol!

    November 1, 2010 at 1:17 pm |
  1488. billybob

    the things you put on the internet stay for ever for every one to see so i think u should be carful about what you put online. cause you never now who is going to see them. thing such as drugs alcohol and eny thing that reference somthing you shouldent be doing.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:18 pm |

    i think you shouldnt put other peoples pictures online. if you want to put yours then thats your problem but dont put pictures of other people without them knowing.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:19 pm |
  1492. Priscilla & Maria

    i Think when people put personal stuff that there not suppose put they never expect to have consequences but they end up having them i also believe if you put a picture like that and you signed somthing that you said you are not suppose to drink and you do and you have evidence you are seriously going to have a consequences.

    November 1, 2010 at 1:27 pm |
  1493. Stanford

    While the school's administration does not know for sure if that was in fact her beverage, it did look as if she was holding it. Considering how most schools have their athletes sign a drug and alcohol agreement form, I do not think the school was far out of line in suspending her from the team.

    most of the time people dont know what there putting/ reading. some little kid could get on the internter find a picture he thinks is funny, when it might be innapropriate. a kid might get online and post a picture on twitter or facebook not knowing what it really means.

    What happened here was wrong in my opinion. First of all, holding an alcoholic beverage outside of school with your family, does not qualify for her to be possessing alcohol or under the influence of alcohol. There is no evidence it is her's or that she drank any of it. Then, she is hit with a punishment which is completely iniquitous based on her actions, which in my opinion were not even wrong in the slightest bit in the first place. The punishment was a suspension of her school sport cheerleading, which is unjust because cheerleading is optional, so obviously it is a sport she really loves, and they took it away from her for really doing nothing wrong at all from my perspective. Also this can all be tied back to the Bill of Rights, in the fourth amendment, which has to do with peoples privacy. Why should the schools administrators be allowed to look through students personal lives on facebook? What people put on there is their own business. But, she also has to respect the fact that whatever you put on the internet can be seen by anybody. But again, the school has no business looking through students private life, and in someways, could be considered a violation of the fourth amendment.therefore i personally think thst you shouldnt post because it is very bad, hurtfull, and it doesnt help anyone, NOT EVEN YOU.........

    I think you should not put any information on the internet because even our name is a big piece of information. Just make everything up that will keep you safe.

    I think that you should never expect privacy on the internet. That is why you need to know what you are on and be responsable for what website you are onj.

    I don't put anything online that would put shame on me. I never put anything that wouldn't be ok to show my grandma. I am very careful about what I put online I wouldn't want to put shame on my name. What you put on the internet can't be taken off. So, it's there forever so I make sure I never put something on that I would regret later in life.

    I dont think that children under 12 should be able to go online without an adult with them. I think this because too many kids are able to see things on the internet that are only ment for adult eyes.Thats why I think that children under 12 should not be able to go on the internet with out an adult with them.

    Its okay to post things on facebook but people can be offended by the things you put on your facebook page, and some people might even make fun of you because the things you put on facebook.

    I think that when someone put a post or blog about something they should be carefull,because someone can use that statement to ruin your reputation or some stranger can use that against you which will allow them to bully you verbally via online.....
    and for blogers out there be sure to be alarmed or be knowledge about what you post or where you post because it never goes away

    Think before you post. Anything you say or post can be used against you in any way.

    When you post something, anyone and EVERYONE can see it! if you are going to post something, you need to think about whether or not you want people to see it.

    I think people should think before they post things on facebook and stuff. Things you put on faceboobk or myspace should just be between your family or friends. And watch out on wat you put on their cause other people can see and that will cause things.

    One way to know what to put online and what not to put online is if you wouldn't show it to your grandma, younger sister/brother, or even principal than don't bother posting in consequence it might be held against you.

    I agree with both sides. she should have looked at the picture and decided if she wanted it put online or not. Then i also agree with her. The school shouldn't have suspended her for something that wasnt her fault. She wasn't the one holding the drink so they can't say that she was the one drinking it

    if your putting something that you don't want to see about you online your just asking for trouble. honestly if you wouldn't proudly without hesitation say it in front of billions of people don't post it, because by putting it online that is exactly what you are doing, you ARE showing it to billions of people and once its there you can never take it off.

    If your not sure what is right or wrong to put online ask a grown up or don't put it online because everyone will be able to see it and it won't end up in a good place at the end.

    Privacy online is an oxymoron. If you put something online, expect others will see it and react.

    I dont think that schools should be able to interfere with what you do outside of school. If so just about my whole school would not be able to be in school.
