There is a definite trend of today’s youth getting into trouble on the many social media sites available to them. As the school year comes to an end, I guess this student decided he would relieve a little stress by using social media to take a jab at his principal. Black Media Scoop reported:
A high school senior in Georgia was suspended from school after posting his principal’s mugshot on Instagram. After learning about the incident, Principal Jamille Miller-Brown called KeAndre Varner to her office and slapped the student with a four day suspension. “There was a violation of policy,” Miller-Brown told the New York Daily News, saying that she felt uncomfortable discussing the matter any further.
Jamille Brown-Miller’s mugshot was allegedly taken after she failed to show up to court for a speeding ticket. KeAndre Varner suggested on Instagram that it might have been for a DUI. But Varner’s mother, Nakesha Thomas, believes her child was suspended for passing around false information about his principal on the popular photo sharing site.
When another user on Instagram asked why Miller-Brown was arrested, Varner guessed wrongly that it was for a DUI. Miller-Brown wasn’t too happy about that — she says the mug was taken after she failed to show up to court for a speeding ticket. The student was originally given a four-day suspension. Miller-Brown later reduced that to two days.
The principal was apparently angered by the student’s claim that she had been arrested for a DUI. The student claimed that he merely THOUGHT she was arrested for a DUI, but never said it was a sure fact. The high schooler told a reporter that he did not intend to jeopardize his principal’s reputation; he was only posting a picture of something he’d come across on the Internet.
The school justified KeAndre’s suspension by stating that he unlawfully used the school’s computer to share the photo on Instagram.
