Signing our Dancing Feet Away

As the times change, so must school policies. One of the newest policies to change in recent years is the way schools approach dances. Recently schools have begun to utilize "dance contracts" to cut down on bad behavior and sexually suggestive dancing. The contract requires a student to abide by certain behaviors while at the dance, for example both feet must be on the ground at all time. If found to be dancing in violation of the dance contract they face expulsion from the dance or worse penalties. There are many local schools that employ these contracts including Downey High School, Aliso Niguel High School, and Biola University.

Legal Help Live is curious, do you think dance contracts are necessary for our kids?

Should you report a robbery?

Is it worth reporting a robbery if you fear retribution from those involved?

Robberies aren't supposed to happen, but when they do should you report it? Many don't report small robberies thinking nothing will be done and just move, while others are afraid but do so anyways. The problem is, citizens who do report crimes shouldn't have to worry about the robber retaliating against them.

Legal Help Live wants to know, have you been robbed and did you report it, or have you been the threatened for reporting a crime? Take a look at the unbelievable story of Khristina Henry and leave a comment below.

"After midnight on a cool September morning three years ago, Khristina Henry and her boyfriend stepped out of the El Dorado Bowling Alley near LAX. Nearby, a group of about 20 young men stared hard as the pair of 17-year-olds walked to their car."
