There's something kind of fishy about the recent report that Wheaton's Community School District 200 called in the cops to arrest two 14 year old boys for "harassment by electronic communication, transmitting an obscene message and obscenity."

First, it's odd that a grammar school principal should call in armed government agents to arrest kids who were not engaged in violent activity.
And second, it's very odd that the government prosecutor, one State's Attorney Robert Berlin wouldn't say what it was all about, because the kids are juveniles.
It's one thing to withhold their names -- but not reveal the particulars of what they are charged with?
He would only say that they weren't taking lewd photos of themselves or other students -- so called "sexting."
The new chief Edison school marm, a former school librarian in her first year as top Edison educrat, one Rachel Bednar, sent a note to parents alleging that some of her wards had posted "inappropriate images involving students and staff" on social media sites."
Bednar then wrote that she worked "diligently, with the authorities and appropriate disciplinary action was taken."
She didn't say that she worked diligently with the parents and the students themselves - just said she dropped a dime to the cops.
Could it be that neophyte Principal Fieber-Bednar didn't know how to handle the "Wheaton Facebook fiasco," herself, so she found it easier to just call in the cops and have the 8th grade kids taken off in irons to the Wheaton hoosegow?
And no one is talking. There's something very fishy about that. There's something very strange going on at CUSD 200's Edison Middle School and until the veil of secrecy is lifted, civil libertarians ought be quite concerned and quite vigilant.
