Ella Fishbough is an eighth-grade student who received detention for giving her friend a hug before school. Ella attends Jackson Heights Middle School in Oviedo, Florida. Her friend was having a bad day, so Ella gave him a hug, which resulted in detention. That's it! As if junior high weren't difficult enough, kids keep getting in trouble for ridiculous stuff. The hug allegedly violated the student conduct and discipline code, which broadly prohibits "inappropriate touching":

Inappropriate or Obscene Act – the use of oral or written language, electronic messages, pictures, objects, gestures, or engaging in unwelcome or inappropriate touching, or any other physical act that is considered to be offensive, socially unacceptable, or not suitable for an educational setting.
