so they are going to have a techno themed prom but get upset when someone does something that might represent ectasy? I`ve never heard of Thizz... I guess I`m too old or just don`t listen to enough rap.

If the parents are buying this, they`re more retarded than their son. Of COURSE it`s a drug reference. Putting the fact aside that these kids are morons, a 3 day suspension is nothing. The kids at this school are just using it as a reason to bitch and moan because this is the worst thing to happen to them in their pathetic suburbanite existance. It`s not going to have any affect on the rest of their lives. No body cares what you do in high school. Does anyone really think this will even be remembered in 10 years? The saddest commentary is that this actually made the, "News" in that town. Pathetic, all the way around. What is the reporter who wrote that story thinking about their career. If that`s where my years of study & practice of journalism got me, I`d go swimming with large bricks in my pockets.

thizzing mostly comes from cali, it`s big in the bay area. tha 40 water and thizz nah mean.lol either way , they were probably pretty popular and kids know what they are saying and three days is nothing, btw no one has ever done 5 to 10 years for the middle finger, so guy got off for flipping two cops off with the finger, so in the court room both cops flipped the judge off saying it was just a gesture. "thefunK`` your cousin lied to you about that one, i hate to tell you it but he did not just flip someone off he probably selling or doing something that actually justifies 5 to 10 years plz.

Good old Sacramento Area High Schools. Lodi is a chickenpoo town sout of here. Bunch of rednecks who probably have never even heard of Extacy. If they were from Sacramento High School and flashed an S sign, the principal would have said it stood for Stoner. THESE JACKASSES ARE TEACHING OUR KIDS!!

whats sick is, at my school we would have gotten in deep for wearing the shirts afterwards
There was once a sort of one day fundraiser charging one dollar for a shirt to get this kid out of jail when he streaked accross the basketball court *during a game* kids were told that if they didnt take off the shirts they would be suspended.
I was also suspended for wearing a "pro-choice" shirt to school.

they flip out on kids "THIS IS A HIGH SCHOOL NOT SOME PLACE TO COME AND BE ALL, SEXUAL!!!"
This sounds like something my school would do.

glad ive never had iss sitting in a room staring at a blank blue wall for 6 and a half hours straight not even allowed to put your head down. damn.
I know a kid that got 12 straight days of it too.
I think id rather have oss. which is suppose to be worse, but i cant imagine how.

when I was in high school, all the students in the various orgs (sports, music, etc.) would try to sneak in the middle finger for their group pics. Worst thing that happened to them was detention, but usually, not even that. Retakes sucked, though. T for techno city? T for Thizz? More like T for `Tard. I vote "dumbass" all around.

haha we did get kicked out of the dance though cause some annoying ass kid kept bothering rob so he punched him twice and he was out

"Sooner or later someone is going to get in huge trouble flashing the peace sign and someone is going to misinterpret it."

about 6 years ago my cousin got suspended from school for three days for flashing a peace sign to a security camera at his school... the schools administration suspended him on the grounds that the way he flashed the peace sign made it look like a gang sign from one of the gangs in chicago. the thing is, however, that he was in 8th grade... in the suburbs... where there were no gangs around that area... so yea schools have been going to poo lately

My first thought before hearing their commentary was that it might have had something to do with AIDS awareness, as in `T-count`; too bad they didn`t have the wherewithal to come up with that one. Then they SURELY could have guilted the highschool into reconsidering their completely left-field interpretation. What worries me more is that the principle, or whatever authority figure responsible for this call is more familiar with gang/drug culture then their own students! Mac-Dre? How obscure is that? Just another example of the positive effects of `forcefully` integrating black sub-culture into American culture at large...

I would bet this is a school that is having trouble with student discipline and conduct. At my high school kids would "make out" and be extremely "sexually explicit" during lunch and passing periods because it was cool. The faculty was not only embarrassed about this issue, but could not control the issue, so they were extremely edgy about stuff. Probably the same problem is going on here.

...Back in my day we only had one word for Extacy. It was "Extacy". Or Ecstacy. Or X-tacy. Each of these were represented by a person by either making an "X" with your hands or a lower case "e" with one hand. Never heard of "thizz" and took a long time to get it spelled right for google. But "T for Techno City" is LAME. They must have been the cornious couple at that school to want to do that. This is our youth now. Turn out the lights America. It`s alllll over.
