Did one Arizona principal go too far?  Did he promote homophobia and bullying?

Shaming by public embarassment certainly does teach a lesson, but in this day and age with social media at everyone's fingertips, can it get out of hand?  Many believe it did at Westwood High School.

After two male students were caught fighting, they were given a choice- either they could be suspended, or they could hold hands in front of their fellow students for one hour.  They chose to hold hands and now the principle is coming under fire for the public shaming.

Their peers taunted them, posting photos of the incident on Facebook and Twitter.  When it was all said and done, the principal was accused of promoting homophobia and bullying.  However some said "holding hands" was a way to represent unity and promote peace.

How do you feel?  Did the principal go too far?
