Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

And the Lifetime movie begins filming in 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . .

Katy cheerleaders could face jail for hazing charges | Moms | - Houston Chronicle: "It was only a tradition — a friendly pre-dawn breakfast hosted by the varsity cheerleaders at Katy's Morton Ranch High School for the girls of the junior varsity squad. But this year, a grand jury indictment handed up on Wednesday alleges, something went horribly wrong.

Rather than being driven to an area restaurant, the junior cheerleaders were taken to a private home where, bound and blindfolded, they were pushed into a swimming pool, the indictment charges. Seven members of the varsity squad, aged 17 and 18, were charged as adults with hazing, a Class B misdemeanor that could bring a maximum six-month jail sentence and a $2,000 fine upon conviction."

When did grand juries start handing indictments "up" instead of "down"?

Once again, it's Texas leading the way; this time it's an assault on common usage. Silly Benjie.
