Four teenage boys in Milton, Georgia were arrested by police and found in possession of a stolen goat. One of them explained that he was planning on photographing the goat so that he could use the image as a prop when asking a girl, "Would you goat with me to prom?" according to police.
“In ‘promposals,’ you’re supposed to go big,” he said. “It’s kind of a trending thing now, too, where everyone just asks in a really creative way.”
Ahmad also said wonders if the school only punished because he is Middle Eastern, and he thinks that any other student probably wouldn’t have faced the same consequences.
The superintendent released this statement to KPTV:
Our administrators and staff are committed to creating learning environments where all students are safe and parents feel comfortable sending their children to school. Given all that is going on in the world today, even simulated weapons/devices can undermine our collective efforts to create a safe school and therefore are handled with appropriate disciplinary actions.
