Parents outraged after cop uses Windsor High School students' MySpace pages for Internet safety assembly

August 20, 2008

Students and parents at Windsor High School are outraged after a Wyoming police officer doing an Internet safety presentation at the school scrutinized individual students’ MySpace pages, calling the students “slutty” and saying photos on their sites invited sexual predators.

The officer, John F. Gay III of the Cheyenne Police Department, picked out six or seven Windsor High School students’ MySpace page and began to criticize photos, comments and other content until one student left the room crying

“He told the entire student body that he had shared her info with a sexual predator in prison,” said Ty Nordic, whose daughter Shaylah Nordic’s MySpace page was put on display.

Nordic said Gay then told the student body that the predator said he would masturbate to her picture.

Shaylah Nordic then left the room as Gay pulled up her phone number and called
her on stage to demonstrate how easy it was to get a hold of contact information via the Internet.

“He told about a story about a girl in another state who was tracked through MySpace who was raped and shot and then said Shaylah’s page is inviting people to do the exact same things to her,” Nordic said.

Windsor High School Principal Rick Porter said today that he was aware of what the speaker was going to talk about and that he would likely use a couple My Space pages of Windsor High School students as an example.

Porter said he had no idea that Gay was going to make his presentation in the manner he did or use the language he is accused of using.

“I was very disappointed,” Porter said. “I never heard him say things like that before.”

Gay could not be reached for comment.

April Rigg, a Windsor High senior, said her MySpace page was also put on display, though she was not at the assembly.

“Me and my best friend are in a lot of those pictures. We have our arms around each other and he was saying that I was touching her,” Rigg said other students told her. “That just sucks because I don’t want people to get the wrong impression of me.”
