Larson Interviewed by KARE 11

Professor David Allen Larson was interviewed by KARE 11 regarding a Rogers High School Senior who was suspended for allegedly confirming via Twitter that he had kissed a twenty-eight year old teacher. Larson discussed how quickly and widely social media postings can be shared and the fact that this student's remark had to be taken seriously because it describes possible criminal sexual misconduct involving a person of authority and a person under the age of 18. Larson pointed out the fact that digital communications can cause far more injury than the speaker may have intended or anticipated. You can watch the interview online at KARE 11.
