The principal & police involvement in 2012 Issaquah May Madness

The principal and Issaquah’s May Madness

Musician/artist in a room in a Washington state local high school that has been shutting down a May Madness contest. Boys reportedly hurt the feelings of some girls by rating their photos . . . Boys are superficial. Some of them believe that cheerleaders, athletes, runners and swimmers are especially cute. It is unknown if the boys give points to girls who do some ordinary walking for more than 30 minutes a day. What does Issaquah High School teach about art creation and art appreciation, in terms of how and why? In 2012 and 2013, police may have checked the scene of the crime.

In 2013, Paula Phelps sent out a letter which discussed May Madness.  Her letter says, “We are working with the Issaquah Police Department to identify the site location and the individuals involved.  With the assistance of the cybercrimes detective we were able to shut down the site last year.”

Phelps makes it appear that the contest itself was in some way in violation of the law.  At best, she does not describe why law enforcement began to be involved.

According to a Seattle times article of about the same time, “Issaquah High officials keep in touch with police, ask hosting websites to shut down May Madness, and work “back channels” to find out from students who might be responsible.”

The article in the Seattle times goes on,

Issaquah High’s contest lost a bit of steam last year after city police warned some students they could be guilty of criminal computer trespass for using other people’s login credentials, police Cmdr. Scott Behrbaum said.

But police haven’t received any criminal complaints this year and aren’t as involved as they were last year, Behrbaum said.

Ok, that is better.  Now that no one is complaining that person A hacked into the physical computer or email account or websites or facebook of person B, police are less involved.  The real question is whether or not, if there was such a complaint made last year, if the “complaint” of computer hacking, website hacking or email or facebook hacking was genuine.   Or, was such a “complaint” in fact made up or created to bring in the police so as to scare people away from the contest?

I don’t know, but I think the Issaquah police department has some public disclosure request procedure.  These things should be interesting to read.  Of course, I wonder if someone made a false or malicious complaint of email or facebook account hacking.
