Parents are reacting to sexually explicit video that's surfaced from Murphy High School prom.
The video shows students dancing to loud music. The ones featured in the video are either mugging for the camera or, in some cases simulating sex acts with their dancing.
In the nine minute edited video some people try to stop the shooter from recording the dancing. The video was posted to YouTube on April 2nd has about 11-hundred hits today.
We showed the video to parents around downtown Mobile this afternoon. Most people we talked with said this just wasn't appropriate behavior for high school students.
"I'm outraged but not surprised because I've seen this sort of stuff coming for a few years," Theresa McPherson, Exec. Director Lights of Empowerment.
The Mobile County Public School System released a statement saying it does not condone inappropriate behavior. "Students need to value themselves and value others when students behave badly it reflects poorly on the entire school and the students' parents. Students need to think before they act."
This isn't something school administrators want to see. The principal of Murphy High School says he was initially horrified by a video posted to YouTube from the schools prom. He says they had 26 chaperones and five administrators at the convention center that night. 31 people were watching more than 800 kids. Smith says they didn't see anyone doing these freaky moves.
When we see it we break it up, I don't think anybody observed this, says Smith. They may not have had enough chaperones or it may be hard to spot. When kids do this they huddle to avoid adult eyes. The principal says the vast majority of students behaved themselves that night. This is just a slice of what happened that night. The video - which was pulled off line after we broke the story - only shows nine minutes out of a four hour long prom. Smith says even though a small amount of students acted out of line it's not okay and they may pursue disciplinary action.
I am going to hold those students accountable what I am going to do I haven't decided yet but they definitely need to be held accountable and they're parents need to know they were involved in this, says Smith.
