    WHY was someone escorted out by police? For daring to mention the name "Prince"!

    It was against the rules! Even NOW...Phoebe is silenced. IMO

    During the meeting, held at South Hadley High School, Boisselle ejected at least two people, including parent Luke T. Gelinas, saying he said broke rules that asked speakers not to mention the Princes out of consideration for he family.

    I doubt they based their decision on the feelings of Phoebe's family. Personally, I think they were trying to save face. Why can't they just call a spade a spade?

    Boisselle's resigning...
    SOUTH HADLEY -- Nine days after being reelected, the South Hadley School Committee chairman -- entrenched in criticism over an alleged bullying-related high school student suicide -- announced Wednesday night that he is stepping down from the post.

    Edward J. Boisselle, who has served on the board for the past 10 years, including the last year as chairman, was quick to distance the move from being related to the ongoing controversy raised when prosecutors recently said some high school staff knew 15-year-old Phoebe Prince was being harassed by classmates, but did not take action to stop the bullying.

    Instead, Boisselle, said at Wednesday night's school board meeting that his action was because, “I’ve always felt that the chairmanship should rotate every year.” Boisselle will remain on the School Committee.

    A split, standing-room-only crowd of local residents addressed school officials Wednesday night, expressing both anger and support toward the administrators during a meeting that saw multiple outbursts, including two the first speakers who were removed by police at Boisselle’s request. He said they were kicked out because they “talked about things that should not be talked about in public.”

    What's even worse, imo...they hold their bogus rally and then forbid anyone from standing up and speaking out for Phoebe...on the 4 month anniversary of her death. These people are beyond the pale...someone should do some genetic research in this area. IMO

    School officials said they have yet to meet with Northwestern District Attorney Elizabeth D. Scheibel to further discuss the details prosecutors uncovered in their investigation into Prince's death. But, said Boiselle, they hope to do soon.

    “I take responsibility that we have not gotten together earlier after the actions of the Northwestern district attorney's office,” said Boisselle, who relinquished his chairmanship to vice chairwoman JoAnn Jordan.

    didn't watch the meeting but am catching up on the news now....skimmed the pdf of Luke Gelinas's speech but this part stuck out and made me sick...#5 on the pdf version, btw.

    …where Miss Prince stated that she was in fear of immediate bodily harm from her persecutors, requested that she wanted to call her mother and go home, and was told to go back to class
    http://media.masslive.com/breakingne...0414213535.pdf

    I know we already knew this but sometimes just re-reading certain things different ways makes them stand out more in your head...if that makes sense (I'm a little tired). Ugh this sentence made me sick to my stomach. I can feel how Phoebe felt in that moment...I can feel how her mother must feel knowing her daughter was trying to reach her and tell her she wanted to come home because she was scared and she was sent back to class. On behalf of both of them, I want to throw up.

    My goodness...it doesn't stop. Does nobody love him? Would someone please tell him he sounds like a dimwitted fool?
    SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) - South hadley Superintendent Gus Sayer made a lengthy statement after the public speak out.

    Sayer said administrators consistently and immediately disciplined students who were involved in bullying.

    I think my Lovecraft crack a few days ago may be closer to the mark than I realized.

    I know, right? That's what I'm sayin'! I would have more respect for these people if they were honest about their intentions.

    Their main concern seems to appearances. They will not admit to error or defeat or frailty, of any kind...from my observations.

    Ironic...because it makes them look worse.

    In order to fix a problem...you must first admit you have one.

    IMO
