New Hanover High student charged in shooting

READ MORE:
WILMINGTON -- We're learning more about the New Hanover County High School student charged in a shooting near the school last week. It turns out that student was actually arrested later in the day in the school. New Hanover High School Principal Chris Furr says the student was arrested on campus in PE class by the school resource officer. The shooting happened just blocks away and prompted four area schools to go on lock down. New Hanover High was one of them. Furr says once law enforcement informed school authorities that three of the four suspects were in custody, the schools once again opened their doors. That's when the fourth suspect -- who was a student -- went to school and to class after allegedly shooting a man. Furr says the student was not in class in the morning and after the incident when he was, didn't bring the gun in to the school. Furr says the gun was never brought on school grounds. The student is no longer at New Hanover High and is facing disciplinary action along with criminal charges.

It seems with all the

It seems with all the negative press lately that New Hanover High School has a lot of problems that need to be resolved. First they need to better monitor the neighborhood's that surround the school. Second they should weed out all the thugs that detract from the students who are actually there to learn but I'm sure that's not the PC thing to do now is it?

Unfortunately, there are not

Unfortunately, there are not enough people to monitor the surrounding community. Something needs to be done, but I'm not sure what it is. There may not be anything that can be done

thugs

if these animals had any upbringing there would be no need for monitoring the community.thugs are taught to be thugs. they and the parents think it is cute.if they had their rearends torn up when they misbehaved the would not grow up to be unlawful savages.but i guess this is what keeps lawyers and judges in business.

I AGREE WITH ROWP

SOME PARENTS DO FIND IT FUNNY WHEN THERE KIDS ACT LIKE THUGS. I SEE ALOT OF PARENTS WHERE I LIVE LAUGHING ABOUT WHAT THERE KIDS DO AND SAY ITS NOT AT ALL FUNNY. I THINK THAT MAYBE IF THE JUDGES START HOLDING SOME PARENTS RESPONSIBLE FOR THERE KIDS ACTIONS THERE WILL BE LESS WANT TO BE THUGS.
