Three arrested in after school fight

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Three teenage girls are likely in trouble at home tonight after getting in trouble with cops this afternoon. Officers had to pepper spray the trio to get them to stop fighting in front of a crowd of onlookers near 12th and Rankin Streets. One of the girls is a juvenille. She was released into the custody of her grandparents. The other two: Jasmine Marie Hansley and Khalia Jade McLaurie, who are both 17, have been charged with disorderly conduct and released to their families.

wow 3 girls fighting in the projects that aint nothing knew.
why send them home you know they didnt get into any trouble. the cops need to stay in patrol out there thats why theres so many fights and shootings.. if the government would stop housing the african americans and paying for everything and make them grow up and pay then maybe they would appreciate more and act like human beings.. if you go to a regular white neighborhood you dont see that hardly ever, theres always something on the news about shootings or fights or drug activity or something.. i mean this is stupid

I used to teach in the school those girls most likely attend. Things haven't changed in 40 years and they are never going to. I doubt they got any punishment when they got home or even a talking to. Disheartening that our society cannnot seem to progress behind this kind of petty bickering.

Why pepper spray them? Just give them room and let them battle it out. As long as they don't hurt anyone else or damage any property, why charge them with anything?

It's ashame how you generalize the African American community as a whole. Racism is so prevelant in Wilmington that it's a dam shame. Of course we all want better for our kids. Would it be fair for me to say that I don't want my child to be sent to a school with your kids, b/c your kids are known to take the school hostage and go on shooting rampage or set bombs to the school. I am an African American "PROUD" with morals, and values. It's all in how you were raised as a child. Yes we have African Americans in the project but we also have Whites in the trailer park! As for me, I grew up in a single family home I got into a fight in High School but that didn't define who I am, but who I am is a Nurse at the Hospital and may have had to help you or one of your family members. By sending "YOUR" kids to neighborhood schools is setting them up for failure. When they do go outside the bubble the will encounter people from all walks of life and they won't know how to adapt. Proud to say I graduated from Laney with people from low, middle, and high income homes again ALL WALKS OF LIFE!!!

"Would it be fair for me to say that I don't want my child to be sent to a school with your kids, b/c your kids are known to take the school hostage and go on shooting rampage or set bombs to the school."

Sounds like a fair statement to me. I don't want my kids going to school witht he ones you mentioned or the ones in the article. Government schools are useless.

Mr. Nick Rhodes! Prime example of why busing was rejected in New Hanover County. I doubt there were serious repercussions at home. This is where the problem is nurtured. When your term as NHC board member expires , maybe you can secure a NAACP position to see how the white community contributed to such incidents. Accountablilty will not be an option of course.

You are right. They probably from around the corner like 11th st. Same neighborhood, and same people. I am not surprised by this. These actions are more common than you think.

These girls need to vent their anger by hitting the turf in the Women's sandlot football league in town. Let's see who is bad then.

These girls don't mess around.

GHETTO!!!!!All ready acting out at tis age? Wow. and people wonder why no one wants these kids bussed into better schools???

U know what, it is a shame how these kids act i bet none of them live out in Rankin. The need to take that mess where they live
