A school in California is taking some heat for a school program geared to "scare" kids to not drink and drive. What the school did was announce that several of the schools students had been killed in drunk driving accidents over the weekend. This was untrue. The students said to have died were alive and well and waiting for their cue to reappear, four hours later.
How did the students react?
One teacher reported some students were effected horribly which forced the teacher to reveal it was all a hoax, and that only enraged the falsely grief stricken students.
As more students learned that it was all a hoax they were outraged. Some students protesting with signs that read "Death is Real! Don't play with our emotions!" The school defends its program. One student was quoted as saying "They got the shock they wanted."
Do you think the school went a little to far, or do you feel that if it saves one life it was worth it?
