Mock Lightsaber Fight Results in Suspension

Video link

Like many soon-to-be graduates, two seniors of Westfield High School in Westfield, Mass., decided to pull a little senior prank during lunch in their high school's cafeteria. The two staged a mock lightsaber fight, "battling" for about 30 seconds in front of a packed lunchroom before ending to a standing ovation from the crowd. The principal didn't find the homage to Star Wars as impressive as the students did, however, and suspended the two seniors from school, adding that they won't be able to walk in their graduation next week. The incident is currently under review and the decision may be reversed after a hearing next week. There's a Facebook group petitioning the school to allow the pair to walk, if you care to add your support.

It depends what sabers they were using and what scene they were doing.

Prequels = They should be expelled and they do not graduate at all.

Classic = They are held to a higher standard and the principal is fired.

I walked into my towns High school to sign in to use the track during the day and was told, that, I could not be on the grounds for any reason and that I was trespassing AT THAT MOMENT. THIS HUGE TOOL WAS THE ONE WHO BUZZED ME TO COME INSIDE. This is a rural school not in the inner city. These are the kind of people that our kids are dealing with every day. The kids and their parents are considered criminals till proven innocent!

The principle basically just said we are punishing these students for what COULD have happened. I hope this doesn't leak into the real world. Get pulled over for speeding, face jail time for manslaughter...
