Senior tradition = 6-car crash by school

This happened in Memphis, MO (pop. 2000+), senior chase tradition on
first day of school.

Apparently they have also had that tradition on the last day of school
as well.  One cop resigns, chief suspended.
Having been a graduate of a conference rival high school, I’d laugh if
the entire student body AND the police force ended up behind bars!

    High school tradition takes a bad turn

     MEMPHIS, MO.)  A senior tradition gone wrong sends three Heartland
    teens to the hospital and leads to the resignation of a police officer
    and the suspension of the city marshal.

    It’s called the "Senior Chase".   And it started years ago as a parade
    where seniors could make their mark on the first day of school at
    Scotland County R-1.      

    The slow-paced parade has since evolved into a high-speed procession.

    The skid marks prove just how dangerous the "Senior Chase" can be.
    Monday morning six cars crashed into one another just about a block
    from school.      

    Three students were sent to the hospital, one with a broken
    collar-bone. They have all since been treated and released.      

    Scotland County R-1 Superintendent, Dave Shalley, says this tradition
    is not a school-sanctioned event.

    "It’s similar to schools having Senior Skip Day. It’s not something
    that’s on your calendar. You don’t plan it. You don’t have anything to
    do with it. There’s no school sponsorship to it at all," said Shalley.

    Memphis Police Officer Michelle Miller escorted the students during
    the "Senior Chase".

    Meeting in executive session Tuesday night, the Memphis City Council
    voted unanimously to accept Miller’s resignation.

    The council also voted 4-0 to suspend Memphis City Marshal Steve
    Snodgrass without pay for 14 days starting August 28th.

    In a statement, the council said Snodgrass was disciplined for failure
    to follow a directive issued by the city council earlier this year.
    The marshal was told his department was not to have any involvement in
    the traditional "Senior Chases" that often occur on the first and last
    days of school each year.

    See? That nice man in the white jacket showed you how to cut and
    paste! He really is your friend.
    Make sure to take the pills he gives you, and practice, practice,
    practice! Soon, you’ll be able to do this on your own!

    put a new perspective on your life.
