A Massachusetts high school senior has been stripped of her title as captain of the volleyball team and suspended for five games after she was caught with a bunch of other teens at an underage drinking party.

But, as it turned out (and confirmed by the police), Erin Cox wasn't there to drink — she was there to pick up a friend who was too drunk to drive.

Gotta love our "No Tolerance" policies. They're black and white when they should be gray. The girl should have obviously let her friend drive home drunk, at least that's what the school thinks.

If the police confirmed she was there to pick up a drunk friend, Erin should be reinstated and receive a public apology. The school district would lose this case (if a judge ever founds grounds for jurisdiction) and makes itself look foolish trying to even let it go before a judge. Erin neither violated the law, school policy, or was an accomplice to illegal or unsanctioned activity. I'd love to read this set of rules to see where a violation occurred. Her simply being at the party is no proof of wrongdoing.
