Student Disciplined for Spiking Brownies Then Testing Reveals That They Contain . . . Brownies

TexasThree students at the Chapin High School in El Paso, Texas seems to have fallen under the Red Queen of Hearts rule of “Sentence first—verdict afterwards.” Three high school students were disciplined after they were accused of lacing brownies with laxatives — and later confessed under investigation by the school. There is only one problem: the Armstrong Forensic Laboratory Inc. in Arlington found the the brownies contained pure, uncut . . . brownies.

There is no question that the students should have been punished for causing such a ruckus and creating what could be viewed as a threat to the Andress High dance team that ate the brownies. Media ran with the story of brownies laced with at poisoning, Clorox, and laxatives in November.

The district suspended the three students for three days, barred them from football games and were going to be placed in an alternative school for the remainder of the semester.

  1. LJM,
    Maybe you are right, maybe folks like Daloe would follow a life of crime if they didn’t have such important trolling to do here.

  2. I’m so glad the internet keeps folks like Daloe busy. Otherwise, who knows what they’d be doing?

  3. Daloe,
    at least do some work and post a different non-responsive answer for each thread. I know that trolling is alot of fun, but don’t you get tired of spewing the same nonsense on every thread?

  4. The school administrators learned that students handed out laced brownies. They investigated. Some students admitted that that they had used laxatives in the mix. The school set a boundary per the established hand book. If you boast you made mischief and get caught up in it, I think the suspensions were balanced not bogus.

    Just step around irrelevant posts like you would horseshit, mine included if need be.

    Make no mistake: GOP is paying trolls to “blog attack” link here:

  5. Guantanamo Commander Says Prison Won’t Close, Even With Obama in Office

    Wednesday, December 10, 2008

    GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba — Guantanamo’s commander knows that the prison on this base won’t close anytime soon after President-elect Barack Obama takes office.

    “Obama knows the hard part, the important part to get ready is where you’re going to put the detainees, and the legal process that you intend to use to continue any sort of prosecution or resolution of their cases,” Thomas told reporters Tuesday night. “The easy part is taking them from JTF-Guantanamo and putting them on an airplane.”

    Thomas, who took command six months ago of the Joint Task Force that runs the prison camps, said no member of Obama’s transition team has visited the base or is scheduled to do so in the next six months calender.

    “If and when there is an order to close it, we will close it,” Thomas said in a discussion with U.S. and foreign reporters on the base for pretrial hearings for five men charged with carrying out the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

  6. Wow. That is a heavy penalty for being innocent! I think the administrators and teachers that were involved in the sentencing should have a suspension for the same number of days, without pay. Buddah, don’t Bogart that Brownie, pass it over to me!(without the nuts)

  7. Hey JT: here is a constitutional question for you while you are sweating it out working off those candy bars 40 pounds on your eliptical trainer:

    Well, CAN WE?

  8. If pure, uncut brownies are a crime I could be in trouble. I’m a repeat offender. With the special circumstance of ice cream, whipped cream and chopped nuts used in commission of a delicious crime.

    And speaking of nuts, the secret word for those of you playing the home version of “Which One of These Things Is Not Like the Others” is “irrelevant”.

  9. Duckworth comments on consideration for SenateBy Alexis Hunt
    Saturday, November 08, 2008 at 9:48 p.m.

    QUINCY, IL — Now that Barack Obama will be moving to the White House, his seat in the U.S. Senate representing Illinois will have to be filled.

    Obama met with Governor Rod Blagojevich earlier this week to discuss it. Illinois law states that the governor chooses that replacement. There’s already been speculation about his selection…from Congressman Jesse Jackson, Junior to Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs Director Tammy Duckworth.

    Duckworth made an appearance in Saturday’s Veterans’ parade in Quincy. We asked her about the possibility of filling Obama’s seat.

    “The Governor’s office confirmed yesterday that he is considering me and I am deeply honored jus to be considered. I hope whoever is selected is someone who is willing to travel around the state and gets to know this wonderful state. I’m just honored to be considered,” Duckworth said.

    The governor expects to make his decision before Christmas. Part of the timing depends on when Obama officially vacates his senate seat.

  10. BTW,

    A great way to get kicked out of Boy Scout Summer Camp is to get caught with Citrate of Magnesia (looks and tastes like 7-UP).


  11. Remember Barney Miller?

    Yemana: [when he’s stoned on the brownies with the hashish] Barney, Barney, Barney, is your mother from Killarney?

    [a minute later]

    Yemana: What do you say we guys go down to the beach, and shoot some clams?

  12. Cook County Dem: Thanks; we should care, because Holmes’ use of the colon is much classier than a semicolon.

  13. Henry thank you and I do care, your Uber Beautiful Baby!

    Seamus that’s pure crazy talk, the Queen of Hearts could’ave had your head.

  14. Cook County Dem: It depends whether the statement is false (which I suppose it would be if everyone in the theater were male). Justice Holmes’ words were “The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic.” Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47, 52 (1919). This is frequently misquoted by omitting “falsely” and inserting “crowded.” (Holmes did not address the question whether the First Amendment would protect a woman in falsely shouting fire in a theatre, but under later interpretations of the Equal Protection Clause, we may assume that it would not.)

    In case anyone cares, another famous line of Holmes’ is also frequently misquoted in print. He said, in his book _The Common Law_, “The life of the law has not been logic: it has been experience.” On most occasions that I see this line quoted, a semicolon is substituted for the colon.

  15. Wouldn’t it be similar to yelling vagina in a crowded movie theater?
    OOpps I mean fire.
    I read the possibly related posts.
