MySpace Photo – Arrested Teen

DENVER, Colorado (AP) — A 16-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday after postings on the popular Web site MySpace.com allegedly showed him holding handguns, authorities said.

It is ironic that I post something about MySpace and the next day someone gets arrested because they posted a photo of them that wasn’t appropriate. I’m all about looking at pictures, but people need to judge what they post before they do. If they are going to post something they shouldn’t, they will have to accept the punishment.

“The photos were very disturbing, and while the content was not a direct threat, we just felt it was important for us to take appropriate disciplinary action,” Kaufman said, adding the student could be expelled.

Evergreen High School is in the same district as Columbine High School, where two teenage gunmen killed 12 students and a teacher before committing suicide in 1999. One of the gunmen had posted a threat on the Internet before the shootings.
