According to police, “body piercing has become an on-going problem” at schools in Fayette County, Ga.
Right up there with wearing saggy pants, no doubt.
Generally speaking, we question why law enforcement officers even have an opinion on the subject, let alone whether they have crime statistics to back up such an absurd statement.
Granted, we do agree piercings should be voluntary. And that isn’t always the case, it seems.
Just the other day, a 13-year-old girl decided to let classmates pierce her belly button at Fayette County High School, then changed her mind — only they didn’t change their minds.
Naturally, some dork went to narc them out to the assistant principal, who did what assistant principals do, and proceeded to intervene to prevent the forced piercing. Then, he called local police. Because, you know, he’s a dork, too.
And, to be fair, it was a piercing-related crime. You know what a problem that’s become.
"An emergency medical technician checked out the 13-year-old, and she was fine," said a news article.
The “victim” and three of her friends were arrested.
