Super Team Haiku causing controversy_67298144

After reviewing a controversial book written by a group of Victor High School students, the Ontario County District Attorney’s Office has decided no criminal action will be taken.

The “Super Team Haiku” book was published by a group of students in April. 

The District Attorney’s Office says the contents of the book are “vulgar, derogatory, and bullying to some readers,” but the content is protected by First Amendment rights.

In its initial response to the book, the Victor Central School District released a statement saying, “… the intent of the students’ work, while highly inappropriate, was not meant to hurt or harm, rather it was intended to be humorous and satirical. Those students involved with the book have since been disciplined in accordance with the school’s code of conduct.”
