In Minnesota at this past Friday’s St. Francis High School football game, for the third game this season 5 students streaked the field. School officials decided to toughen the penalties for the students as a result, now the students could face suspensions, a ban from school activities or forced transfers or expulsion.
Last month at an away game two of the St. Francis students were arrested after they made their naked run across the field. One of the teens was charged with disorderly conduct and the other may be charged with fifth degree criminal sexual conduct for exposing himself to a minor under the age of 16. A conviction for that would require the teen to register as a sex offender for 10 years. Because, you know, that seems an appropriate punishment for a harmless prank. It’s not like streaking hasn’t been HILARIOUS for as long as crowds have gathered.
I hate prudes. Don’t the school officials recognize that streaking in Minnesota’s frigid temperatures is punishment enough?
