Shit is going down at Tolman High School in Pawtucket, RI. Apparently a school resource officer had to arrest some dingbat kid and his dingbat brother interfered so he got taken down and arrested too. This has brought out the inner hippie of many in the student body and led to more protests that led to…….you got it – protester violence!!!!
Police said a school resource officer (SRO) assigned to the school was trying to bring a 14-year-old disorderly student under control on Wednesday. The officer believed the boy was trying to fight another student.
The SRO brought the boy into the office, where police said he continued to yell obscenities and punch the walls. When the teen ignored the officer’s commands to stop, the SRO decided to arrest the boy for disorderly conduct.
While the officer was placing the 14-year-old under arrest, police said the boy’s 17-year-old brother entered the office and started to push the officer and then both brothers started attacking him.
Police said the SRO was able to get the 17-year-old to the ground. However, while he attempted to handcuff the teen, the younger brother started to approach the officer from behind. At that time, police said the officer grabbed the boy, using a takedown move.
Once again, the only political candidate in Rhode Island with a sensible solution for this is Al Dente:
There you have it folks – this is why the PawSox are moving to Worcester. This is why Lou Merloni, Lars Anderson, and Ryan Lavarnway hated being sent down from Boston twenty times each season.
This is all the hippie’s fault. These kids have been brought up to believe that police don’t have the right to arrest you if you’re an asshole – they do.
They’ve been led to believe that if you don’t like the job the police are doing you can go up to them and interfere with an arrest – you can’t.
They’ve been led to believe that their opinion actually matters – it doesn’t.
They’ve been led to believe that they are all experts in police training and what is the proper way to arrest someone – they have absolutely no clue what they’re talking about.
And in schools they’ve been led to believe that if they’re having a bad day they can express themselves by punching things in the main office – they can’t.
Thanks hippies. Hey kids, you know what a great way to not get slammed to the ground to the cops is? Don’t start punching shit in the main office. Don’t touch police officers. Go to class. Learn. Do something productive with your life. Kids who do these things don’t get arrested. They go to college and move out of Pawtucket, like you’re supposed to do.
Watch this interview of the two kids were taken down in the officer:
According to police, Tyler was throwing punches at a wall. “No I was just angry, I hit my fist on the bench – that’s it.”
Oh, is that all you were doing? Why didn’t you just say so. Because if you’re upset in school you have the right to punch things. All rules of civility are suspended if your delicate butthurt is on high that day.
“I didn’t hit the officer. I just held his hand down to get off my brother.”
Is that it? Because 17 year olds definitely have the right to hold down the hands of a police officer when they don’t think the cop should be arresting their brother. This is how the real world works.
Anyway this led to another protest in which more kids were arrested and pepper sprayed:
Eight juveniles and two adults were placed under arrest and some were pepper-sprayed following a protest outside Tolman High School in Pawtucket Thursday morning.
About 100 students took part in the protest, which was staged in response to a video that surfaced online Wednesday purportedly showing police slamming a teenage student to the floor.
“The message is for cops to ease up on kids. We shouldn’t be treated as criminals,” said student Montrell Sivils.
Oh, you shouldn’t be treated as criminals? Hey here’s a good way to not get treated like a criminal – don’t commit crimes. You’re not allowed to punch things in a school and you’re not allowed to hold down a police officer. If you do those things, then you’re a criminal. But please, tell me more about what you think, because your opinion definitely matters. Definitely.
The demonstration began peacefully around 8 a.m., but then erupted into chaos after a fire alarm went off in the school, causing students to be evacuated.
Pawtucket police and Mayor Donald Grebien were on-scene encouraging students to be obedient and return to class.
“I’m asking you to put your trust in me. I’m going to listen to you,” Grebien pleaded.
A small delegation of students were invited to City Hall to discuss the video. However, police said a couple hundred students remained outside.Grebien said the protest took a turn after a student reportedly broke a car window.
The protest then moved from City Hall to the parking lot of a private business. Police said the protesters were spitting at and threatening police officers, at which point one of the officers discharged pepper spray at several individuals. Police said a total of 10 people were arrested – including the student who pulled the fire alarm and the person who broke the window.
See that? That’s the problem right there. We’re giving them the impression that they have a say. They don’t. Their job is to sit down, follow the rules, and shutup. Because until they turn 18 and start living on their own and paying taxes, their opinion is irrelevant. But instead the idiot mayor invites them to City Hall for a discussion. And how do they thank him for this? By breaking a car window and spitting on cops.
Ya know how the mayor should’ve been able to realize that these junior morons should not be taken seriously? They had signs like this:
As soon as you see #Free(insert name here or “they boyz”), you can tell that you’re dealing with people who have absolutely no fucking clue what they’re talking about. These people are to be laughed at, but they certainly should not get special meetings with the mayor. Because people who draw liquor bottles on protest signs are a joke and should be treated as such.
When are we gonna learn that negotiating with people who behave like this is not an effective way to run a school or a society? The bottom line is that this proves more than ever that we need cops in schools. This cop should be given a pat on the back, but instead he’s being “investigated” by the mayor.
I say we get rid of the mayor and replace him with Al Dente and his protester plow. They’ll be begging to have the cops back in school in no time.
