If you can get suspended for averting a potential disaster on a school bus one wonders what punishment you would get for saving the entire school:
A Florida high school student was suspended after he disarmed another student who allegedly threatened to shoot someone while on a school bus.
An unnamed 16-year-old student from Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers, Fla., was suspended for three days after he disarmed a 15-year-old peer who allegedly threatened to shoot another student with a loaded revolver during a Feb. 26 fight on a school bus, according WFTX.
“It’s dumb,” the suspended student told the station. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?”
The teen, who reportedly took away the .22 caliber RG-14 revolver away from his armed peer, was allowed to return to class on Monday, WFTX notes.
Officials later revealed the student was suspended because he didn’t cooperate with the investigation.
The boy’s mother said she believes her son wouldn’t reveal the details to police because he was “born and raised” not to “snitch.”
“I’m going to stand beside my son 100% no matter what,” the unnamed mother told WBBH. “He was very heroic; I think he did the right thing.”
However, according to a release by the school district, anyone involved in a school bus altercation is subject to discipline, per the code of student conduct and Florida law, WBBH reports.
The alleged gunman was later identified as Quadryle Davis. He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, WZVN reports. He was taken to the Lee County Juvenile Assessment Center.
Remember when suspensions used to mean something? Now it is a badge of honour in commemoration of heroism and personal integrity.
Now tell me that our education system isn’t in disarray!
