Certainly plenty of talk about the ill-power of MySpace.com. Can't say I didn't predict a situation like this would occur. But middle school kids? Man...
Makes my gut tighten a bit. Granted, a 'worst case scenario' always comes along, but this one does make you wonder:
Students at Coon Rapids Middle School allegedly created a MySpace account that was meant to damage the reputation of a teacher at the school by misrepresenting itself as the teacher's MySpace page, according to law enforcement officers familiar with the investigation.
The page on the popular social networking site included pornography and demeaning references to religious heritage and sexual orientation, the officers said.
Police would not speak about the case in detail because it still is under investigation, said Capt. Cary Parks of the Coon Rapids Police Department.
"The victim is a teacher at Coon Rapids Middle School, and apparently some students, what the investigation is leading to, is some students are upset with him and created a phony MySpace website and put things about him that were incorrect," Parks said.
