Drop all disciplary actions taken against Aleczander Scott.

Aleczander Scott is the a down syndrome child, who does not comprehend hate. He knows nothing but love and affection. He hugs everyone he sees. He is currently facing arrest by juvenile and has been suspended for 15 days.  The school has pressed charges of sexual assault for giving his bus aide a hug. She states Alec tried to "hump" her. However, his home health aid was a witness, and she states this never happened. It was a normal "alec" hug where he jumps up and down, and yells in excitement and happiness. Alec is the most loving boy you will ever meet and doesn't even understand why he can't go to school right now, let alone that he sexually assaulted someone. Please help end this absurdity.

I can tell you there was no board meeting, we did however meet with mr mayberry on monday the 19th and some demands were agreed to, but there was also false hope given to us.

      This is just wrong. These kids are the most loving people you will ever meet. They do not understand that that "society" is messed up to the point that giving someone a hug is "wrong". Having actually known a child with D S, I know how sweet these kids are.

      I am signing this as it is posativly ridiculous that this young man is being accused! First of all -It was a HUG! plain and simple- I would not think a child without DS would mean it sexually much less a person with DS who is not capable of such ignorance! Shame on the person accusing! I hope she gets charged with harrasing him!!

      This is totally absurd. Look at this boy. He certainly does not understand sexual harassment. How dare he be accused of such a thing.

      This child is innocent and has not a clue that he did anything wrong. How petti and childish can this bus driver be?! I am OUTRAGED at this school for being so simple minded. If i was the parent(s), i would sue the school for discrimination, public humilitaion, slander, and false accusations! This isn't right and the people responsible should be ashamed of themselves!Im sure they can get in trouble for witholding evidence(survallence video) as well!
