US teen cuffed for disorderly classroom texting
SMS-happy whippersnapper heads for court
A text-happy Wisconsin teen who refused to stop messaging during a high school maths lesson was arrested, charged with disorderly conduct, and now faces a court appearance for her trouble.
The unnamed 14-year-old girl was busted last Wednesday at Wauwatosa East High School. According to the rap sheet posted on The Smoking Gun, the SMS-crazed ne'er-do-well declined not only to cease her texting, but also to surrender her Samsung Cricket.
Cue law enforcement intervention, and the offending mobe - which the girl had attempted to conceal about her person - was finally extracted "from the buttocks area".
The hardened perp was banned from school property until 17 February, had her phone confiscated and will appear in court on 20 April on a the disorderly conduct misdemeanour charge. ®
Let's face it, since the girl initially refused to be searched, she was lucky to avoid a solid tasering. Mark my words, it's the only language these feral kids understand, etc etc.
@AC: No, it was fine.
It should be:
"Meanwhile nobody learns nothing"
At least it were when I were at school
Well only in the US south where double negation is emphasis, rather than double negation.
You could say "Meanwhile everybody learns nothing" or "Meanwhile noone learns anything".
After all if nobody learns nothing, then everyone (being every body not covered by nobody) learns something (being not nothing). That's the only logical way to parse that. Of course applying logic to the south's use of english is probably why it has never made sense to me. It just doesn't work that way.
When you have kids that use 1100 to 1300 texts a month (US system which charges for received as well) you have to wonder if they do any work at school.

My grandson is 12 years old , and at his school cellphones are veboten.
Anyone with one will get it confiscated, and i doubt the cops would be involved.
