Chaperones Spray ‘Groping’ Teens With Lysol At Worst Prom Ever
When it comes to teens and prom, few things are shocking. It’s a night of cliches, after all: getting wasted, losing your virginity â€“ that kind of stuff. But now a group of Colorado teenagers is alleging that two mothers â€“ chaperones at their high school prom â€“ sprayed Lysol disinfectant on their faces after they were caught groping (aka dirty dancing). They also claim they were called “sluts” and “whores,” which in my opinion is even worse than the whole Lysol thing (though that’s pretty bad, too). What the hell were these mothers thinking?!
The incident took place at Manitou Springs High School, just outside of Colorado Springs. The mothers, Jennifer Farmer and Hannah Rockey, both 42, told an on-duty police officer that the bumping and grinding was “filthy” and “similar to what you would see on MTV.” (Hi, is 1983 home?) “It’s like they are having sex with their clothes on,” they explained.
As far as I’m concerned, the question isn’t whether or not these teens were being inappropriate. If they were, then yes, they should have been disciplined. But last I checked, spraying someone with Lysol isn’t the most effective way to teach a lesson. And calling girls “sluts” and “whores” is just plain idiotic. Again, what were these women thinking?
Thankfully, one of the students has filed a police report, and an investigation is underway. Of course, there are two sides to every story, and so it’ll be interesting to hear Farmer and Hockey’s side. If they’re charged and convicted, however, they could face fines of up to $750 and up to six months in jail.
Quick, somebody buy the movie rights!
