    Default [Serious SGI News] Students told friends dead in police hoax

    POLICE and teachers who told a group of Californian high school students that two dozen of their classmates had been killed in road smashes had to admit it was just a hoax when the teenagers became hysterical with grief.

    The fake announcement was part of a El Camino High Schol's road safety campaign meant to scare the students off drink-driving.

    To make it seem real, highway patrol officers visited the school on a Monday morning to deliver the grim news explaining why 26 students were missing from class. The Associated Press reports some students wept, some felt physically ill and others were completely overcome.
    Sensing the hoax had gone too far, some teachers decided to break character and tell the grief-stricken students it was not true.
    Word quickly spread throughout the school and shock and pain was replaced by fury and disbelief.
    One student, named as Michelle, who had been told her friend David had been killed, was quoted as saying: "They got the shock they wanted". She had been told David had died instantly after a drink-driver crashed into his car.
    Another student she felt betrayed by people she is supposed to be able to trust.
    When the hoax was revealed, students began screaming in anger at the teaching staff. At a later assembly, they held signs saying: "Death is real. Don't play with our emotions", the AP reported.
    Those who were slow to hear the news of the hoax then had the added shock of seeing their "dead" friends turn up for class.
    School officials are unrepentant. "They were traumatised, but we wanted them to be traumatised," a guidance counsellor was quoted as saying.
    The area's schools superintendent said there had only been a handful of complaints and that it appeared as though the message had got through.


    Well I just want to know what you think about this? Do you think what the Police and Staff did is worth 'the message'? Is it right or wrong to pull such stunts in order to raise awareness of safety?

    worst teachers ever. It'd be bad enough if one or 2 kids volunteered, but for 26 students to "die" in drunk driving accidents, it makes it seem there was a massacre over the weekend or something. Ridiculous.

    I approve. Seeing how much of what we hear--especially in media--is utter nonsense, this serves as a brisk reminder of the fact.

    Bah.

    Okay, if a student can't say someone's dead, why could a teacher? They tell us to put so much faith into them, and lookie here, they used that faith in betrayal. I don't trust teachers unless I actually stay after school a lot, like my sensei. I trust her. X.x

    Psh, and then they wonder why students don't ask their teachers for personal help e.e

    This is so messed up. True, it was meant to teach them a lesson but nobody, TEACHERS and POLICE officers especialy has the right to mess with people's emotions to prove a point. These are supposed to be trusted authorities to be looked up to, do they really think the students are gonna beleive a word they say now?

    Quite frankly any educator who thought this was a good idea should resign.

    If teachers did that to me, they'd lose all credibility and respect. End of discussion. In fact, I'd probably campaign to have every officer and educator responsible removed or demoted. This sends a message that you CAN'T trust the Police or teachers, because they will lie to you to prove a point.

    Just curious, how many of the students that were told this actually drink alcohol or even own a car/have a driver's license?

    Oh man, that's hilarious. I don't find it wrong at all (This is me though...).

    To me it shows what CAN actually happen. Sure it was a "cruel" way. But hey, sometimes that what it takes. I mean, sure some of the kids probably didn't deserve this prank. Still...it can get someone thinking on the possibilities towards what can happen(Ignoring how it could lead to paranoia, ibeing insecure, etc.). Especially on that whole underage drinking thing.

    "Death is real. Don't play with our emotions."

    Ha-ha. It is real, this can help keep that in mind for you. Unless you're like me and could care less about death, or view it as some form of redemption. Still pretty damn funny to me. AGain, totally my opinion.

    That's aweful. Why would they do such a thing? And how about the students that were "dead?" Did they pay them or give them school credit? If people drive drunk, they'll learn the consequences. And 26 students?! I mean one or two, but 26?! That's ridiculous. Those people.....have something wrong with them.

    I'm somewhat suprised that they didn't have a rebellion. If police came to my school and told me that 26 students died in a number of drunk driving incidents, I would naturally assume a police conspiracy. I'd demand the student body baracade themselves in the gym for protection, since they are obviously trying to take us out one by one.

    Well that's certainly presenting the problem quite bluntly O.O; I guess that'll teach the students a lesson, but it's really not that good to be playing with peoples' emotions, especially kids, because this is when a person's emotions are developing most, and in this stage, they're emotional wrecks!! @.@ But before the Police and teachers tried this...what would they expect a reaction would be?? 0.0;

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    People got a chance to talk to each other before the administration admitted the jig was up. So even if they didn't read a list off, they still let everyone know that 26 students were "dead".

    Also, if that was the case that the police only told me that one student was dead, and a friend told me that the police told him a different student was dead, and another friend told me a third student was dead, I would even more-so suspect conspiracy.

    That's the message I'm getting from this.

    And besides, knowing that a few dozen of my classmates just died would distract the hell out of me and keep my focus away from actual classwork that I should be doing.

    That's just downright stupid. But, I guess it got the message through about drink-driving.

    I actually think it was a good idea. Exteme? Yes. But in this case, I think the extreme action was well worth it. Also, the students that played dead did it of their own free will. I was watching an interview on the news earlier that had one of the tricked students, and one of her friends that played dead, and I agreed with what both said. The one who played dead said it would really shock their friends, but they knew that knowing that feeling would keep them from drunk driving. The girl who was tricked said it was shocking at first, and she asked why her friends would do that to her, but when she calmed down, she thought about it again, and said it was a good idea, and would really make an impact on the decisions of the students.

    Most teenagers are dense. It takes more than just "don't do this" to actually have any sort of effect.

    Teachers and police are already not respected by most of the student population, I don't see how this can make anything worse.

    That method was very effective, atleast the students thought about it.

    Now the students know how others will feel when they drink/drive and then die....That will teach them to lay of the alcholic beverage during driving.

    Its a very good educational experience......

    I actually agree with it somewhat... It's a good way to portray the dangerous-ness of drunk driving.. It gives something for students to think about and experience first-hand.

    On the other hand, I think this was a bit over the top. 26 students? 10 would be enough.

    Uh so? this is what happens. there is a highshool where they pull the whole shabang with making an accident in the front and having paramedics and morgue bags. They put one kid in the morgue bag and have the other kid like severely messed up. This is all fake but it is just to say like kids don't do that.

    Still, eh whatever, they will get over it when Stacey becomes teenage pregnant from Prom night and Bill who got her pregnant comes out of the closet. OH NOES HIGHSCHOOL DRAMA!

    That reminds me: Those students that played dead? Again, if it were me, and any of my friends pulled that not only would we not be friends anymore, but they'd better not walk past me carrying something heavy/fragile. Hell, I'd start telling anybody who'd listen their most embarassing secrets I know about the person in the hopes that they kill themselves for real.

    If you're going to fake your death, the only acceptable reason is as a joke. I'll accept none of this "Important Moral Lesson" nonsense.

    I dont agree with this at all one bit. These are teachers, figureheads in a teenagers life to look up to and trust. Finding people to trust in a teens life, with all the pressures presented to them to handle: sex, drugs, violence, etc, is a very sensitive and important issue for them. A teacher has no right or reason to ignore that responsiblity of trust to these individuals at this point in life. A doctor makes an oath to heal and save lives. An oath that they know well they should never go against. Teachers too should have a similiar and unwritten oath to bestow and maintain trust in the minds they dedicated their careers to enlightening. This surely can not be a sensible way of doing that. At least some teachers had enough sense to see it was going too far and confessed it to be a hoax. But where were these educators' nerves at when the event was being organized in secret?
    "They were traumatised, but we wanted them to be traumatised"
    This quote came from the mouth of a guidance counsellor for crying out loud. Students come to these people for guidance and to talk about their problems. The last person Id expect to aid in the traumatizing of teenagers is a school guidance counselor. I certainly wouldnt go to one that would betray and deceive students and I wouldnt be surprised if no one else does either.

    Seriously, how is this suppose to protect them from drunk driving? What if one of them were killed by a drunk student driver from another school that never even saw the "demonstration". Or if some 25, 30, 40, or 50 year old decided to get wasted one night, without any common sense, plowed through a group of these students walking home from a friends house. Maybe a good handful of these students learned something from this, in my opinion, shameful and insensitive ploy, but how does that save their lives from another individual that was less educated to know better. Im reminded of a moving poem written in the form of farewell letter of a dieing girl to her mother of how she was good and didnt drink but asked why was she paying for someone elses carelessness. I dont think they prevented anything doing this. v.v

    ....those fools!
