Talk about cyber bullying! Not to mention lousy writing
Oddly enough, Principal Mark Jackson had informed Dylan and family on Friday that he was indeed banned from the June 6 graduation ceremony.
While Ms. Carpio was somewhat correct in saying he was the, "white, male, senior High School student who threatened to bring a gun to school" she is wrong about him "racially harassing black students." More like the other way around.
She's also wrong about Dylan "not being allowed to return to Amherst High School." School authorities issued a 12 day suspension after the January 27 "unforeseen circumstances" school closing: Ten days for the Facebook threat and two days for using the "N-word" (the five letter version ending in A).
The parents decided to keep him out for the rest of the year because school authorities had done little to nothing to the three black students who threatened him -- one of whom laid hands on him.
Since this regrettable drama started over 3.5 months ago no media outlet (or blog) has mentioned Dylan's name. Yet Camila Carpio does so in an Internet petition which has the potential to be viewed by millions.
With factual errors bordering on libel.
