The Political Agitator response: It takes some time to load this up into a vehicle I would think. I would think more than one trip to and from. But why would he act as if he was going to do something or get ignant with the principal and the police because what good would that had done? I don’t know what his plans were but I do know that he could have done some damn serious damage somewhere be it the school or wherever with all of that ammo. But an 18 year old with all of that, whey did he get that stuff from legally?
MIDDLESEX COUNTY, Va. — A Middlesex High School student was arrested after investigators found four loaded guns, knives and more than 600 rounds of ammunition inside his SUV parked outside the school Friday, according to Middlesex County Sheriff’s investigators.
Police said they found the weapons in 18-year-old Austin James Martin’s SUV while they used drug dogs to conduct a sweep in the school’s parking lot. The guns, investigators said, were scattered about the vehicle.
Both the school superintendent and Middlesex Sheriff’s Officials said there was no indication Martin planned to attack the school. They said he was very cooperative when he was brought to the front of the school to asked about the weapons. (Source: Read more)
I have been hearing about a Press Release that the school system has shared with only 2 people that I know of but why has it not been in the local news?
It is sad that with all of the school issues that are going on with gangs, violence, shooting and etc. that the Nash-Rocky Mount school system need to address this issue so that this mess will not lead up to potential hate among our children.
If someone have a copy of the Nash-Rocky Mount School system Press Release about the 6 white girls in the controversial photo will you please forward it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This goes for the school system because I know they read my blog. Don’t let folks make you think they don’t read it because I know they do and some have told me they do.
Check out the controversy surrounding the Nash Central High School controversy and form your own decision. The following is my ignant opinion.
I am pass the 6 girls in the photo and the 7th person that took the photo because although it didn’t happen at school, it is now a school issue because the school is providing police protection. The controversy comes at a time when towns across the United States are speaking out against the murdering of black folks by the police.
FACT: The girls posted the photo on Instagram and obviously some students took issue with it because the white girls have been given police protection by the school system. So therefore it is now a school issue.
FACT: The NAACP and the community are now being made aware of the issue that took place a couple of weeks ago so don’t act as if the NAACP started this mess. They are questioning the mess.
Fact: It is 6 girls in the photo so who is the 7th person that took the photo?
For me it is about questioning whether the school system is following their own policies and procedures and being a community activist dating back to the late 80’s and a Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP I believe the school is not treating this mess like they have other incidents within the system especially when it comes to dealing with black students.
I don’t want to talk about the girls, the KKK and other at the moment I want to talk about the school system not following their policies and procedures and if that is proven then the issue with the girls being suspended will take care of itself.
I have also stated that I want to know who the parents are because that may help solve why the mess is being treated the way it has. Somebody is protecting somebody.
I have seen the Press Release from the NAACP so where is the Press Release from the school system that should have come a couple of weeks ago.
Something is wrong with this picture and it is greater than the girls. Again for me it is now about the school system policies and procedures.
The Political Agitator response: See comments after the article. The problem I have is that this is about policy and procedures and the school system need to be held accountable for their actions. They need to prove they have followed their own policy as it relates to handling of the situation to make sure it was properly communicated to the students, parents and community and that will determine if the children needed to be suspended.
The Rocky Mount branch of the NAACP is calling on Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools officials to take action against students pictured in an incendiary Internet photo that has gone viral.
The photo was posted on the social media website Instagram in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. In it, six unidentified female Nash Central High School students dressed in white and wearing white, cone-shaped hats reminiscent of Ku Klux Klan costumes are seen pointing their fingers in the shape of guns toward the camera.
“The young ladies’ actions on their social media page have incited a storm of controversy here in the Rocky Mount area,” branch president Andre Knight said in a written statement. “They should be held accountable for their actions and the Nash-Rocky Mount school system should speak to our region about their intolerance for the support of hatred in school or out of school by any group, student, employee or elected official affiliated with the public school system.” (Source: Read more)
