Twitter account under fire for encouraging drinking, sexual acts of Long Island high school students
A Twitter feed dedicated to graphic pictures of Long Island high school students engaging in drunken activities and sexual acts has parents outraged.
Many of the pictures displayed on the Twitter page @LIPartyStories display underage students who appear to be drunk, passed out and in sexually compromising situations. The names of some students are easily identifiable, along with their high school and township.
The account is under fire for encouraging illegal behavior.
Marge Lee, of DEDICATEDD, says parents need to "wake up."
"I would venture to say the majority of the kids in these pictures are good kids. They're not criminals. They're stupid with a capital S," Lee told News 12. "And their parents are just as stupid for not knowing that their kids are out there doing this."
DEDICATEDD is a nonprofit group that works on Long Island to assist victims and educate about the dangers of drunken and drugged driving.
Several school districts contacted by News 12 did not comment on this report. Two separate public relations companies that handle many of Long Island's schools say they would not comment because nothing happened on school grounds.
News 12 counted more than 40 different locations represented on the page, including Sachem North, Calhoun High School, Port Jefferson, West Babylon and Chaminade.
The page has more than 18,000 followers.
