Five 14 or 15 year old male students in South Carolina must have sore hands from giving high-fives. Sure, Ms. Ward is no 10, but when you’re a 14 or 15 year old guy and you get to touch boobie — or anything else — it’s cause for celebration.
I just don’t get this kind of sentiment:
None of the victims were there to face their former teacher in person. Attornies say their lives have been forever scarred. “Their mindset has been damaged basically for the rest of their lives, and in fact, it is a life sentence on these kids.”
Wait, what? I remember back in 10th grade wanting nothing more in life than to get naked with my hot, 22-year-old government teacher. Ms. Whatsherface (who says teachers don’t leave lasting impressions?) was certainly way hotter than Allena Ward (and about a million times hotter than Karen Robbins, who is the 3rd Laurens County, SC teacher to be charged with kiddie touching in the last year), but at 16 or so, I wouldn’t have turned that down, let alone turn her in. But then again, neither Allena nor Karen were finger-pointed; they were emo enough to write letters or diaries, and keep them in their desks. That’s idiocy.
