A Laney High School student cut another student with a sharp metal item during class, according to a Richmond County tribunal finding made public today.

The student refused to follow instructions from the assistant principal and school safety officer, and cursed at and struggled with the officer during the Jan. 7 incident.

The tribunal held Jan. 24 suspended him for the rest of this school year and the first semester of the 2011-12 school year with the option to attend the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program.

In other Jan. 24 tribunal findings:

  • Five Glenn Hills High School students were suspended for the rest of the school year, with the option to attend the alternative program, after a Jan. 8 fight caused a "huge disruption" during dismissal. A sixth student was given time served and placed on probation for the rest of the school year.
  • A Hornsby K-8 School pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year, with the option to attend the alternative program, after he used a cell phone on Jan. 6 to record another pupil using the restroom, and then showed the video to other pupils.

Why is a school tribunal

Why is a school tribunal dealing with a student who cut another with a sharp metal object. Would that not be some sort of battery that should be dealt with in the court systems?

Whatever teachers and school

Whatever teachers and school staff are getting paid, it's not enough. When they walk though those school doors every morning they don't know if they're going to be cussed out, beat, cut, or shot. I don't see how they teach anything.

There should be substantial

There should be substantial penalties for the parents of such child criminals.

There's a time for a child to assume full responsibility for his or her actions, but it certainly isn't during K-12.

Sweet Tooth kids certainly

Sweet Tooth kids certainly can assume full responsibility for their actions. A 17 yr old goes to adult jail if they are arrested. Over 13 yrs of age kids who commit certain serious crimes are automatically tried as adults. The parents are not charged. The kid is.They know better.

Even if they are charged

Even if they are charged criminally the students are still sent to tribunal.

I'm from Florida and the schools in the counties I live in there worked with the sherrif's department. There was not a seperate law division for the schools, we had regular uniformed deputies at our schools. It seems to me they might respect a deputy more but here they are already stretched too thin.

Textbooks teach these

Textbooks teach these students they all came from an ape like creature then we all shocked when they act that way. Fortunately Real Science has always debunked the evolution religion preached in our public schools. Unfortunately tax USERS are not listening, as usual.

Apes DON"T act like that. That's just another made-up excuse for poor parenting.

Apes are better than that,

Apes are better than that, Corgi. As a man is in his heart, so is he, some worse than apes...
An ape did rip some ladies face off, in case fan hadn't heard.

Crime, most of these kids who commit these acts couldn't tell you what evolution means, and certainly didn't do any supplemental reading of the textbook to find out various ideas of human ancestry.

All4Mine, Sounds great to me.

All4Mine,

Sounds great to me. At least two deputies in each middle and high school at all times complemented by a school crimes squad of at least four other deputies would make a good start.

Would cost too much? How much will the continuing erosion of respect for authority figures cost us if this erosion is allowed to continue unabated?

But if that's the way you

But if that's the way you feel, Crime Rewards, why is it that millions of Americans were taught about evolution and they don't act like apes? And be sure and include yourself in that, because somebody taught YOU about evolution. So do you act like an ape, too?

I laugh every time I see somebody post that- they conveniently forget that THEY were taught about evolution, too.

Blows up that theory, doesn't it?
