The AP reports from Costa Mesa, California:

A middle school student faces expulsion for allegedly posting graphic threats against a classmate on the popular Web site, and 20 of his classmates were suspended for viewing the posting, school officials said.

For viewing it? What?

[Assistant Superintendent Bob] Metz said the students' suspensions in mid-February were appropriate because the incident involved student safety.

Oh. Well, I guess that's OK then.
