"What Would You Do?"

Today’s guests found themselves in unique situations where their actions would greatly affect their own and others’ lives. Learn more about their choices and decide whether you agree below:


When Jacqueline was told that she couldn’t wear her self-designed Confederate Flag dress to the prom, she was astonished and felt that her First Amendment rights were being violated. The high school senior had spent years making the gown in honor of what she felt it stood for: family values, chivalry and honor.

When she tried to attend prom despite the school’s decision, Jacqueline was met by police and told that she wouldn’t graduate if she tried to enter the building. With the help of her attorney Earl Ray, Jacqueline is now suing the school on the grounds that the dress may have been potentially offensive, but it was her right to wear it.



In Lacey and Carmen’s case, a mother’s intuition ultimately was responsible for putting a criminal behind bars. At age 14, Lacey was dating a 17-year-old, with whom she was skipping school and sneaking out. Carmen became suspicious of their activities and consequently eavesdropping on their phone conversations, from which she learned that Lacey’s boyfriend had mugged a local woman. After Carmen notified the police, Lacey’s boyfriend was convicted and put in jail. The twist? Carmen’s actions were considered illegal per the Washington Privacy Act, which prohibits eavesdropping. However, Carmen maintains that she did the right thing and would do it again, whether legal or not.



The question of accountability came into play when Randall Tidland was jailed for his daughters Rose and Mary’s frequent truancy from school. At the beginning of the school year, parents at their school were asked to sign a contract saying they would ensure the kids attended school and suffer the consequences if truancy occurred. Though Rose and Mary say they were well aware of the contract and its consequences, it didn’t keep them from skipping more than 20 days of school. Some question the effectiveness of a policy that punishes parents for children’s mistakes; however, Randall still had to pay the price by spending an afternoon behind bars.
