    i agree that they should understand the dangers of doing something like this. but do not think it is fair that these students not be allowed to walk at there graduation because of one harmless prank .no one got hurt and no damage was done they earned the right to walk down and accept their diploma .

    I think the punishment is definitely too harsh, I do understand that there are possible dangers, but it really isn’t as harmful as the administration may pose it to be. I think the administration may be over dramatizing it, they are not little kids and I am pretty positive they are smart enough to know not to be reckless about it. Believe it or not, in my French class, my teacher would have a Star Wars lightsaber duels between him and another student or between two students and believe me, there was never really any harm, it was actually incredibly enjoyable.

  • I think it’s very obvious that their school adminstrators are Trekkies. Well, all I can say is . . . , live long and prosper (with five fingers converted to three) because the force is definitely not with you.
