Speaking of moms lunging at principals

With our mobile lifestyle, we are often presented with information that changes meaning when taken out of context. For example, we have this story on news10.net about the mom who allegedly attacked her child’s principal at a Stockton elementary school.

Pami Gibbs, a student’s mother, hit the first-year principal in the face after her son was told he either had to change the shirt he was wearing or turn it inside out because it did not conform to the school’s uniform or dress code, according to authorities. The shirt may have had skull images or something similar on it…After the mother was pulled off of the principal, she allegedly lunged toward the principal again and then fled.

The mobile version of the story ends with this sentence…

You do not get the linking (Nice plug, News10) so you think it’s part of the story. Or at least poorly placed. What, there wasn’t a thread already on MomsLikeMe about Moms wanting to attack their child’s principal?

I have this image in my head of someone pulling the mom off the principal and things starting to calm down and then the mom getting fired up again and taking off (“lunging”) after the principal. Oh, and what’s similar to skull images?
