School Girl Suspended Over Osama Facebook Post

Facebook is as we all know the biggest and most popular social networking site on the planet, with so many millions of people logging on every day the way in which the site is used is very much varied, from Kleenex helping allergy sufferers to Parents taking inspiration for their babies name Facebook seems to accommodate for anything you could ever think of.

Of course when you are going about your daily business and getting your fix of social networking goodness it’s always important to keep your wits about you, these words should have been uttered to the young school girl who was suspended after a comment she made on Facebook involving her teacher and Osama Bin laden.

According to a recent post by Foxnews, the thirteen year-old girl was suspended by her school for five days after posting on her Facebook page that she “Wished Osama Bin Laden killed her math teacher. The suspension has left the girl’s mother Kimberly Dell’isola outraged as she feels the punishment was a bit extreme considering her daughter should be entitled to free speech.

Although Dell’isola claims she regularly checks her daughters Facebook use she was not aware of this post until she received a phone call from the school’s principal, even though she didn’t condone what her daughter had said she feels that the punishment should have been left down to her to carry out as her daughter had updated her page while she was at home.

We’re not going to question who should have been held responsible for punishing the young girl or what the punishment should have been, we do think she is quiet lucky though not to get a visit from Secret Services like another thirteen year-old did when he posted a comment about Osama Bin Laden.

What are your thoughts? Do you think the school overreacted?

      It wasn't a teacher who checked the FB account. A parent of one of the daughter's friends reported it to the principal. Another article reported that fact.
