Two freshmen boys at Omaha Westside High School are in trouble after a disturbing stunt in a home economics class. The assignment was to make baked items and frost them. At some point the boys excused themselves and went to the restroom and apparently put bodily fluid in the frosting container. They continued the project and the teacher did sample the baked goods. The incident was reported by another student.
Dr. Janice Kuhn is an Omaha psychotherapist and says this far exceeds the category of a classroom prank. She says, “This is in a category of disgusting and hyper-sexualization. Kids can think of all kinds of things to prank teachers but when a you are going into that zone that child is into a lot of other things. Our world is about choices and consequences and the best time to do that is when our kids are growing up. If you choose a behavior there are consequences.”
The police were called and the 14 and 15 year old boys now face misdemeanor disturbing the peace charges. It is not known what other criminal charges they may face. The boys also face some form of discipline from the district but that too is not known.
