    ANGEL OF DEATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    I. Factual History

    In 1994 Brandon Smith was a senior at North Boone
    High School in Boone County, Illinois. On October
    14 of that year Brandon participated in a lip
    sync/1 contest at North Boone's homecoming school
    assembly. Prior to the contest, the school
    officials notified all students that anyone wishing
    to participate was required to sign up in advance
    and obtain prior approval for his or her particular
    lip sync routine.

    There was an effort in 1994 to increase control
    over the homecoming lip sync contest because in the
    fall of 1993, several students engaged in lip sync
    performances that were determined to be
    inappropriate for a school assembly (i.e., repeated
    crotch grabbing and other tasteless conduct).
    Brandon and several of his friends who participated
    in the 1993 lip sync performance were disqualified
    from the contest and were verbally admonished by
    faculty members at that time.

    Undeterred by the disapproval of his conduct in
    1993, Brandon and some of his classmates decided to
    participate in the 1994 homecoming lip sync
    contest--without signing up or obtaining any other
    form of prior approval. In order to keep their
    surprise performance unknown to the North Boone
    administrators and faculty, they concocted a plan.
    Another group signed up for the lip sync event
    explaining that they would perform a number from
    the musical "Grease." While the "Grease" lip sync
    was in progress, Brandon and friends, disguised by
    face make-up, body paint, and torn clothing would
    come from backstage and begin their own lip sync
    performance, chasing the other group from the
    stage.

    The plan was carried out and immediately after
    taking the stage, Brandon and his friends began
    their lip sync rendition of "Angel of Death,"
    originally performed by the group "Slayer." In the
    performance, Brandon and his group made a mock
    attack on a woman and her child. After the woman
    was knocked to the ground, Brandon produced a chain
    saw which he lifted to his groin area in simulation
    of an erect penis. He then approached the woman and
    child and pretended to mutilate the woman with the
    chain saw while his friends joined in beating her
    with their guitars.

    Reacting to the performance, teachers attempted
    to stop it by closing the stage curtain. Brandon
    was not to be constrained, however, and he came
    around the partially-closed stage curtain, produced
    a live boa constrictor and pretended he was going
    to throw the snake into the assembly audience of
    students, parents, and faculty.

    Prior to Brandon's performance, Barb Fedderson,
    the faculty member responsible for the lip sync
    contest, was backstage. According to Fedderson,
    just seconds before the "Grease" lip sync
    performance began she saw Brandon preparing to take
    the stage. Because it was only moments before the
    lip sync was to begin, Fedderson made eye contact
    with Brandon and told him "don't do anything you'll
    regret." According to Fedderson she did not see
    that Brandon had a chain saw or a snake.

    North Boone school principal Karen Severn was
    also present at the homecoming assembly. Following
    Brandon's stage appearance, she decided to call a
    meeting to evaluate Brandon's conduct. The lip sync
    contest took place on Friday afternoon, October 14,
    and Severn contacted Brandon's mother, Cheryl
    Smith, on Monday, October 17, setting a meeting for
    the following day, Tuesday, October 18. At the
    meeting on October 18, a discussion was held
    involving Severn, Fedderson, Mrs. Smith, and
    Brandon. A video tape of the lip sync contest was
    viewed. Fedderson reaffirmed that only moments
    before Brandon took the stage she had told him
    "don't do anything you'll regret." Additionally,
    Brandon and Mrs. Smith were also given the
    opportunity to ask questions and discuss their
    version of the incident. At the conclusion of the
    meeting, Severn told Mrs. Smith and Brandon that
    she was suspending Brandon for three days for his
    insubordinate conduct. She determined that Brandon
    had violated the established rule that all lip sync
    performers must sign up prior to their
    participation, and that he had failed to heed Mrs.
    Fedderson's warning that he should refrain from
    doing anything that would be in violation of school
    regulations. Beyond the verbal notice of suspension
    and articulation of the basis for the action,
    Severn did not, at that time, give Mrs. Smith or
    Brandon any written notice that Brandon was being
    suspended or that Brandon could appeal his
    suspension.

    3 days? thats pussy shit. i was suspended for the last two weeks of my senior year (including finals) because of my little 'mock rock' lip sync performance.
    i was also escourted off the premises from my own commencements by the police, simply out of fear that i 'might' do something.
