Five face riot charges after fight at Chaney High School

Published: Fri, April 1, 2011 @ 11:48 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Five Chaney High School students, including two 18-year-old males, face riot charges after police say they were involved in a pair of fights at the building.

Police say a fight involving about 15 people in the school’s main hallway, by the old gymnasium, started about 1:20 p.m. Several teachers and staff were trying to break it up when two officers responded.

There were so many bystanders near the fight that officers couldn’t use pepper spray to stop the brawl, according to a police report.

Shortly after that fight was stopped, the five students charged with rioting, started another fight, police said.

Officers called for a lockdown of the building and with the assistance of teachers and other staff, the five were arrested.

The two 18-year-olds were arraigned today in Youngstown Municipal Court. Their bond was set at $3,000 each with their next court appearances scheduled for 10:30 a.m. April 14. The cases of the three others were sent to the Mahoning County Juvenile Justice Center.

Animals aren't as bad as these so called "students." At least animals can be trained. Better to get more Jail cells, I mean "meditation" cells ready.
This new plan for the city schools will be in the dump before too long too. With "students" like these they'll end up being taught in prison.

They need to get rid of all the charter schools and put the money back into the city schools. Then what they need to do is find something that gets these kids' interests. If they don't find something that these kids are good at and enjoy, the crime rate is going to continue to grow, these kids are going to continue to get into trouble, drop out of school, and continue to live a lifetime of crime. There has to be something better than what seems to be happening.

To Sally1952 get their interest? Gangs, drugs, jail. Chaney School is infested, and they need to ban these animals from the school and sent home to be home school for the rest of their school years. Youngstown City Schools need to get rid of these trouble making gang banging kids out, and let the ones that really want to learn something as they have a right to. Since the parents of these type of kids are not being held accountable let them deal with them all day at home being home schooled. Its free and they get a computer to do classes online. I feel for the ones that want to learn something but can't because they have these little idiots roaming the halls and teachers can't do their jobs because they are mainly babysitting.

"Then what they need to do is find something that gets these kids' interests."

Interest? School is about LEARNING and about being DISCIPLINED to neither further your education or start in the work force. If you can't be civilized in school then there is no hope of them becoming a productive member of society.
Interest! How long have schools been around and why is it all of sudden catering to these animals that have no parent upbringing, no morals, no discipline, etc. when the other students take pride in there school work and school. Have to quit catering to these wanna be gangstas. That's the part of the problem.
