Student Shot at School Gets Detention

Student shot at school gets detention for taking part in school- shooting protest:

Caffrey, now 16, was one of two students shot and two others injured during the resulting confusion Feb. 29, 2016, when James “Austin” Hancock, now 17, stole a gun from his great-grandmother, brought it to school in his backpack and ultimately used it at lunchtime. The other student shot, Cameron Smith, was hit in the back and unable to walk for weeks, according to his grandmother.

I think his dad has got exactly the correct attitude about it:

“The whole purpose of a walkout is to protest against an establishment,” Marty Caffrey wrote on Facebook. “I do not expect the establishment to support the walkout.”

Exactly! I can support this kid's walk-out but the school can't.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
