Setting: A high school football game in the district RG resides
Main Characters: RG - female age 12 and ME - male friend of RG age 12(the one writing the report)
At about 7:00 P.M. I bought my ticket at the ticket booth at the front gate of the West Geauga football game. I entered the game and RG and I found some friends that she knew. Their names were TG, JR, BK and a couple other girls I do not know the names of. For about 10 minutes we just stood around near the entrance concession stand and talked about miscellaneous things. After that we decide to go find other friends such as RC, JE, and MD. When we find them we all get to say hi because I have known them from earlier experiences because I have hung out with them before and seen them many times with RG. When we find them we all make our way to the grass area to the left of the home stands at the football game. We are all there having fun just talking till about 6:20 left in the 3rd quarter and a kid named Gus shows up right next to us with a couple of his friends. At first we don’t really notice him till one of RG’s friends spots him out and RG says “Oh no.’’ A little time goes by and with about 2:20 now on the clock RG and Gus get into a little confrontation with RG slapping him. Gus proceeds to say the word “retard” about 4-5 times and this angers me because I have a sister who is mentally retarded so by the 6th time Gus says “Alright RG you’re still the most retarded person” and this angers me even more and I proceed to punch him in the face three times under is his eye near the cheek. After that Gus grabs me and then lets go and that was the end of the fight for that time. Everyone is shocked including me and we go our separate ways and do not see each other for the rest of the night. After the fight it starts the 4th quarter and RG and I continue to hang out with MD, TG, BK, JR, and a couple other people I cannot remember. Through the 4th quarter we continue to stay in the grass area with our friends and find no other trouble throughout the night. At the end of the game RG and I find RG’s little brother and proceed to the front entrance to find RG’s Dad who is with RG’s sister and her friend. We have to wait to let the football players go into the locker room and once they are done we head toward the car at 9:12 P.M. And leave the West Geauga football game.
Things to think about:
If you were the parent of ME, what would you do?
If you were the parent of Gus, what would you do?
Should the authorities be notified?
Are assault charges appropriate for ME?
Should RG and ME be suspended from school?
