I love stories like this, LXXXIII

In the latest from the government-funded compulsory-attendance matriculation centers, it's a 12-year-old special education student that's been arrested now. She's been charged with disorderly conduct:

Young Girl Facing Charges After Wetting Pants

(AP) DANVILLE, Pa. A 12-year-old special education student in Montour County was charged with disorderly conduct after authorities said she deliberately wet her pants at school.

Her mother told the Press Enterprise it happened because her daughter was frightened by the principal.

The story goes on to say that "school officials are at their “wit’s end” with the girl, and they believe her actions were deliberate." Well, even if they were, wouldn't, say, suspension be more in order than having her arrested and charged? Work with me on this.
