The story of the bullied kid who recorded his bullies, only to then get bullied by his school and the local police, is about to end on a happy note. The District Attorney is getting the last say, and will drop the charges entirely.

No one in our office who was authorized to give advice on wiretap issues or school conduct issues was ever contacted in this matter. We have made multiple attempts to contact the officer who wrote the citation. Those attempts have been unsuccessful. It is our intention to withdraw the citation on April 29 because we do not believe his conduct rises to the level of a citation.

Would there have been a positive ending if blogs hadn’t turned the story into a national issue? Unlikely.

Its only a happy note if the principal is fired, the faculty is replaced and the school property sold to a private charter facility.

How did we ever agree to let these people "educate" children.

So, back to the original issue: WTF will the school or the police do about the bullying, and the teacher who tolerated it in her class?

"The officer"? How about a name? How about names for ALL the a$$hat bureaucrats behind this appalling episode so they can be appropriately shamed?

If we're going to disclose the names of people who contribute $1,000 to Prop 8 and hound them out of a job it seems like people who so horrifically abuse children are worthy of the same, at the very least.

It's lawsuit time. Long past lawsuit time.

We're long past the lawsuit time as many of the thugs own the courts.

This is nothing more than a CYA moment. The powers that be want it to just go away.

It probably has to do with police union rules.

The DA has no guts, unless he tells us he is pursuing charges to all the morons involved in the case...or at least firings

If they realize that they are wrong now, why don't they drop the charges NOW? Why leave the kid and his family dangling, subject to fears that they might change their minds again?

Maybe that is the first available date on the court's docket.
