South Dakota High School’s Sick Prank Means No Homecoming
In this day and age, you would think this type of "joke" would not have even been a thought. Because of some students’ actions in South Dakota, the local school board has called off homecoming festivites for one school according to the Rapid City Journal.
The prank happened at an annual event known as car bash, where students smash a car with a sledge hammer, Wednesday night, (Oct 11). It is worth noting this event is not a school sponsored event and the prank was aimed toward Pine Ridge High School, on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The students involved in the prank were from Sturgis Brown High School.
Students were able to get a junk car and proceed with the event and once the pictures from the event spread on social media, the public was outraged. The issue is the words spray painted on the junked car such as "Go back to the Rez." Also "SS" symbols painted on the vehicle – apparently a reference to Nazi Germany.
In response to thier sick prank, the Meade School District canceled the homecoming festivities at Sturgis Brown and this means no dance and anything associated with homecoming fun.
You would think something like this would not happened which only demonstrates society still has a long way to go.
