Mistakes and the News

So apparently a certain person who works at my school got into some trouble last night and everyone at school was talking about it today. It was also all over the web since his position is what it is, but I didn't pay much attention to it because everyone makes mistakes.

Well, during seventh period today I had to go to the bathroom in the front of the school because the one I usually used was locked. Before I walked in I noticed a certain news van (not saying any names) parked outside my school's gates. At first I didn't think much about it but then I realized why they were out there: to get students to talk about what happened.

Walking back up I thought about what they were doing. It's wrong, why come and prey on the students of high schools about bad things like this? By doing this you are only adding to our schools already bad reputation when we aren't actually all that bad school.

Why couldn't they come and cover the One Acts Festival that our schools drama club held last Friday? They couldn't wait outside the school to ask students how they felt about our school going to states to preform their one act? Why not a story on our schools magnet programs and the good things we do at school?

I understand that he is suppose to be a role model for us students but everyone make mistakes. And by making this mistake he can tell us not to do it since he experienced the consequences for what happens when you make these mistakes.

So I got two more things to say before ending this: students and parents should stop making this such a big deal and move on with their lives and that certain news crew needs to stop preying on high school students and find better news to report.
