16 Year Old Cypress Lake High School Student Who Wrestled Loaded Hand Gun Away from Another Teen Gets Suspended for Three Days
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN … now we punish teenagers for a heroic acts.
A 16 year old Cypress Lake High School student in Fort Meyers, FL who wrestled a loaded hand gun away from another teen threatening to shoot, is being punished with a three day suspension. WHAT!!! That’s is correct, this is the lessons that we are teaching students in out dysfunctional public schools these days. The student managed to get the gun away from the 15 year old suspect on the bus ride home. Witnesses on the bus said that the suspect aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him. The 16 year old who wrestled the .22 caliber loaded revolver from the teen most likely saved a kids life. What did he get for his heroic actions … a three day suspension. I can remember a time when such an act would have been praised. I can remember a time when it was expected that one do the right thing and prevent bullying and stand up to those on school buses who would try to cause harm to others.
The student, who Fox 4 has agreed not to identify because he fears for his safety, says there’s “no doubt” he saved a life by disarming the gunman. And for that he was suspended for three days.
“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” the student said. “Not taking no pity.”
The student says he wrestled the .22 caliber RG-14 Revolver away from the suspect, a football player, who witnesses say threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
“No doubt,” the student said, “he was going to shoot him point blank.”
The teen we spoke to and authorities both confirm the Revolver was loaded. According to the arrest report the suspect, who Fox 4 is not naming because he is a minor, was “pointing the gun directly” at another student and “threatening to shoot him.”
That’s when the student we spoke with says he and two others tackled the teen and wrestled away the gun. The next day the school slapped him with a three day suspension.
What have our schools become and what messages are they teaching our children? as the American Thinker stated, Our children are being intimidated and punished by a malicious government and an ever-weakened society. According to the idiots from the Lee County School District, a teen should be suspended for doing the right thing. I guess the school administrators would rather have their kids look the other way and have students killed? Get this, the teen who saved lives is being suspended because of being part of an “incident” where a weapon was present. WTF!!! Are you telling me that the school does not differentiate between the shooter and the hero? The 15 year old suspect was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. How do they know it was not intent to kill? These school administrators should be ashamed of themselves. What has happened to the country I grew up in?
“It’s dumb,” he said. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?”
According to the referral, he was suspended for being part of an “incident” where a weapon was present and given an “emergency suspension.”
