You shoulda asked one of the smarter kids to help you try to pass yourself off as a teacher.

Common sense...why would teachers instigate trouble that would just multiply their problems....the students came from home with this attitude, and no teacher can change it....Brooks has changed from one of the elite schools in the county to one of the less remarkable....it isn't the faculty, yet we can not be honest enough with ourselves to agree that the home place is the instigator of all this.....


Again....thats all kids everywhere. Not just Brooks. HAS ANYONE HEARD OF COACH HILL IS PLANNING ON LEAVING BROOKS?

As I previously stated, it is not my intention to imply that all or even most of the teachers at Brooks behave in such a negative manner—I just want people to understand that there are a few that you have to watch out for…I am sure this occurs at other schools as well. As I also stated previously, there are good teachers. As for bringing the issue to light, again, as previously stated, it was called to the attention of the principal and basically, nothing was done about it. The situation is currently being brought to the BOE’s attention. I think it is understood that there are “bad apples” in every profession but in certain jobs the employee is to be held at higher standards—teaching is one of those professions. In addition, yes, I do agree that most times the problems begin at home but like my original point, this is not always (emphasis on not always) the case.


I wasnt referring to anyone in specific, you and I were actually typing our posts at the same time, I didnt read your post until after I posted mine.

I see all the 'friends' of dgreen are coming out of the woodwork.

I dont see a conflict here? I told dgreen to grow up and act like an adult AND then I told educator to help him to grow up and act like an adult (in a different post), since he seems to think so highly of him and knows him personally.

I believe some of these folks are all one person. There are lots of new ID's floating around this topic....

Nope, the kid stated a point and then followed that up with a threat to anyone who didnt like or agree with what he had to say. Free speach does not give you the right to threaten to beat others into submission.

I knew I was not speaking to an adult when I told him to grow up. My parents always taught me that if I wanted to interact with adults and adult conversations when I was a teenager, I needed to act the part and speak with a little sense. He came into an adult conversation, he should act like one or go back to texting his friends.

Love of school does not give someone the right to go around trying to bully those that disagree with him. Someone should teach him to respect his school by demonstrating that its students are above acting childish in public (and this is a public forum).

And, for the record, I made a statement about him needing to grow up. I did not continue to make fun of him at any point. I continued to argue with you and your friends (his friends I am guessing, if there is more than one person behind the new id's) about whether or not it was a threat in the first place.

If you would quit trying to defend him by ganging up on me and the entire situation will go away. But your high school mentality is showing, as I am sure most of us adults remember well. I guess you guys arent used to someone sticking by their statements when you gang up on them at school, are you?

If a child is reading this then he needs better adults in his life to monitor his internet activity. I'm sorry, I don't even care about the situation at Brooks, but to jump on a forum member for posting a response to another poster is ridiculous. If you play with adults you get treated like an adult. Obviously he is learning that the hard way. Sometimes that is what it takes.

BTW -- I read the post about "name the time and place" the same way Jeepin' did -- as a threat. When I was a kid it was 'meet me at the flagpole at 3 o'clock' or 'meet me at the creek'. If that isn't what he meant -- then he shouldn't have posted something that could be misunderstood or taken as anything else other than a threat. At the time I read it -- I didn't know he was a kid, but that is no excuse. If you dish it out you better be ready for what comes back.

Just my 2 cents worth. Hang in there Jeepin' -- maybe they will realize that if they would get on to the boy for posting what he did instead of babying him they'd make a better adult out of him. Oh wait, that's right, that's part of what this thread was about -- kids behaving badly. Yep, full circle.

SO back off and grow up....stop trying to make things worse...do you have kids..well you should think about that when you post mean and rude things to a kid!


Still havent answered my question, where is the conflict? If he didnt want to be called out on how he acted, he should not have made the comment public.

And yes, I'm a parent, and I wouldnt' expect my children to act that way either....

I don't deny my dumbness but I'm not the one trying to make people think I'm a teacher either. No wonder the parents are mad. Where are your teachers while you're playing like you're a teacher on the internet in the middle of a school day? What are they doing while you kids are playing around?

Hehe, go back and read your post, old Jeep Man didnt post this. Imagine that, someone else disagrees with you....

Jeepin'
Let me say this. I am an educator, a special education teacher to be exact. I am convinced that the only person who would be posting such nonsense is either a disgruntled parent, former teacher or former student. No law abiding citizen with no "beans in this race" would be wasting so much time on this forum taunting children. The student you are speaking of is a bright young man.
To the one who continues to make horrible comments to a child: We work as a team of faculty at Brooks High to make a difference in the lives of children. It is my passion to work with the kids who are not the most popular..NOT the jocks...It happens to be a priority to make a difference in the lives of these children. I have never made a comment on any such forum but I could NOT sit back and watch an adult make comments to a child. If that makes you feel good about yourself..I am sorry for you pain.
Let's stop the comments guys..and hush this foolishness up on this forum.
Let's put our time and effort into making Brooks High School the best it can possibly be. Let's set an example for our students and community and pray that we can encourage our students to be lifelong learners and law abiding citizens!

Let me tell you two smart ones something...Kids are allowed to read the Times Daily at their schools and it's a shame that when they do they have to enteract with people like you! This is out of hand and you were trying to make this kid mad or upset...he did not make a threat to you only was not scared to admit who he is and what he stands for and thats his school and his teachers! Shame on you as an adult and a parent for doing this to a child....It's ok for a kid to make a point on here just like you..he has that right, but you also knew you were talking to a child and you kept on! SO STOP, as a parent you should know better!


Honey, I'm quite sure that if you would stop the conversation would stop. It's a 2-way street. You keep agging this drama on just as much as anyone else. Please, by all means, tell the rest of us how to act -- but please, lead by example. As a parent, you should know better.

As far as the kids being allowed to read the Times Daily -- yes, read, but to allow them to post on Facebook and forums and other venues of that nature -- could be considered irresponsible if there is no monitoring and no control.

So, its ok for a student to exercise their right to free speech but no one else has that right? Ive got news, anyone that posts on this forum (or reads this forum for that matter) expose themselves to conversations with everyone else on this forum, whether they like what people have to say or not. It doesnt matter if they are 14 or 40, if they dont like someone elses opinion, they can close their browser just like everyone else. There is nothing in the TOS that states that we have to be aware of who are children here in the forums (and not critisize them). What is says is act civil to one another. More veteran posters than I took this as not being civil.

If you are an educator, you can look back at my posts and see that I support most of you. You can also tell they my entire problem has been with the threat in the post. And the funny thing is, everyone but dgreen has denied that it was a threat . Can you explain that?

This has gone so far past the original post dgreen made and so far into the fact that those of you that 'agree' with his stance on the subject want to overlook what was said (or twist it into something else when the original poster hasnt even said he didnt mean it like alot of us took it .)

If you are an educator at Brooks, I can tell you that many of the neutral folks here can now see some of the interworkings at the school.

Now you can let it go, or you can keep on, I really dont care because you are not going to change my mind about his intent in his original post.

TD please delete Ang4Blake. No one is attacking any kids on this thread. It is a discussion and just because people disagree doesn't mean they are attacking.

Furthermore, if kids decide to join an adult coversation then they should be prepared to handle opposition. If not, then they should stick to something more age appropriate.
I've got to agree with Jeepin and Eastside, I also took dgreens initial post to Jeepin to be a threat. I think he needs to re-read #3 on the "Things to keep in mind when posting" on the front page of the forums. All threats will be taken seriously. If you're going to post on a Public forum and want to be taken seriously as an adult by other adult posters; don't make threats unless you want them taken seriously as well........

It's entertaining to see all of the Newbies that come out of the wood works to support their "friend" when he started it. I have to agree with whomever posted that it's probably the same person trying to back out of what they originally said. Instead, he should just "man up" and admit he was trying to pick a fight or clear the air himself. No one has attacked anyone except dgreen trying to pick a fight in his original post. If anyone should be deleted it should be him. Funny, too, they want the thread deleted since they know they've made themselves (and Brooks) look silly instead of just stopping their drama several pages ago.

We all have a 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech. Thank you for reminding us of that Jeepin -- it's not for the young or the "educators" .........

If you will go back and look the kid took his post off! He had a right to speak just as you do, it's a shame that you felt the need to continue the harrasment of a child.


Why is it that you have deleted 7 of your 10 posts on this topic? Just in case you didnt know, when another poster quotes you, that quote is not deleted when you delete your original post. So most folks here can see how much you have instigated this argument, even though you try to hide it.

I thought maybe you had decided to drop it and move on, but apparently not, you just dont want to look like you are one of those causing all the trouble. Good luck with that......

And BTW, freedom of speech comes with responsibility for what you say.....

So, agree with me or Im gonna kick your *** is his statement. With that statement alone, I put no trust in anything dgreen says. And I dont put alot of weight behind anyone who defends him....

You fail to see that this truly stopped being about the kid and started being about you several posts ago. Actually, I didn't harass anyone. You harassed Jeepin. I called you out for your drama -- I never truly said much to the "kid", but thanks mom. He had a right to speak and he also had a responsibility to say "hey I was wrong" -- instead, delete delete delete. I do love the quote button, but if you can't stand up for what you say then why post at all? If you are so proud of what he said and what you've said -- why delete delete delete? Man up and deal with the drama you created. And I'm not talking about the kid -- I'm talking about the rest of your posts that harassed Jeepin and now me because you couldn't just let it go. Great example for our kids. Drama drama drama....Big Grin For someone that didn't intend to argue -- you sure do that a lot. Big Grin Sorry, this has been entertaining today! Thanks!

Is Jerry Hill leaving. I hope so. He's no Coach Redding.

I loved Brooks when I went there and honestly don't remember too much bad stuff that happened during that time. Now its Allen Wilson and Andrew Scott and many others who drag the school's name thru the dirt. Time marches on.
These folks who are students and teachers that are posting during the school day have to be posting from their cell phones because I work in the Lauderdale County School system and I can read the paper online but you cannot even read the forums much less post on it. The forums are locked out on the county website.

Every school has its issues. I honestly don't think that Brooks has it any worse than any other school in the county.
All this fuss because of saying something to a kid for making a post that I thought was a disgrace to his school for both the poor grammar and his threat of violence. What's most appalling is "educator" commenting about people that "have no beans in this race" sorry but this is one of OUR schools, everyone in the community has "beans in this race" and you will find plenty in the community (including myself) who will stick their nose into school business whether it’s welcomed or not.
The calls for TD to delete this thread are ridiculous, are you just trying to sweep your dirty laundry under the rug? Do you really feel that everything that happens at Brooks should stay at Brooks?
I did not see as where anything that was said could be taken as picking on the kid, he came here with an angry & threatening post and a few people called him out for it. If any of the new posters claiming to be teachers really are adults then your condoning such behavior from the kid and making excuses for it is part of the problem.
If I'm not mistaken -- most of those supporting this "kid" have now deleted all of their posts on this topic. Great support there. Unfortunately for this kid and others like him, no one corrects their bad behavior. They give them the "poor little baby" kisses and coddle them and then act amazed and dumbfounded when the kids screw up and get pregnant or get on drugs or get in trouble with the law. You helped mold them and shape them that way so when they do bad things you only have yourself to blame. If I had made a threat like that when I was a kid -- whether on a public forum, to a person's face, or just in conversation and my dad found out -- boy my behind would have been sore for days and I would have learned my lesson not to pick fights. Oh wait, then my dad would have been accused of child abuse by these "coddlers" and thrown in jail for trying to raise me.......Big Grin Roll Eyes
