This is ridiculous. Better yet, let them get right back to their education today! The school officials who suspended them should be fired! Tax’s are paid paid for a reason, one is for these students to reap the benefits of education. What these students do outside of school should be little their concern unless its endangering themselves or others. They should NOT be doing community service, they broke absolutely NO laws. Those punishing them should be ashamed.
Some of the players who were punished don’t even want to come back to the team after all this nonsense. No laws were broken, no property was torn up, nobody got hurt, real criminals have been dealt lesser punishments. People who act like they are holier than thou when they arn’t will eventually be exposed for what they are….Hypocrites !
