School disciplines girl for list of frustrations

NEVADA -- School administrators suspended a student in March after they found a list she created of people with whom she is "frustrated."

The Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School student was suspended for 10 days after school officials learned of the list, which included names of fellow classmates who frustrate her.

A sheriff's investigation into the incident concluded that the girl posed no immediate threat because she did not have access to any weapons and she did not make any direct threats.

The sheriff's department got involved after receiving an anonymous tip.

Richard Siegel, president of the American Civil Liberties of Nevada criticized Douglas County officials for "overstepping their bounds."
