Student shot with stun gun faces charges

Published: Fri, October 7, 2011 @ 7:05 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A shock device was used on an East High School student Thursday morning, and the student faces charges of assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and aggravated menacing.

According to a police report, the incident happened after a verbal argument in the school’s cafeteria threatened to turn physical between the student and a fellow classmate.

An East High senior became irate and angry after an officer asked her not to use her cellphone, a violation of school policy. When he grabbed it from her, she grabbed it back and, according to the police report, struck the officer on his left shoulder with her right hand — knocking him back several feet.

The officer stated he used a shock device to stun the student in the back as she tried to leave the office, after he ordered her to drop to her knees and inter-lace her hands behind her head.

The student threatened to come back and shoot him after the arrest, the officer contends.

The 17-year-old student was released to her guardian after the officials at the Martin P. Joyce Juvenile Justice Center refused to book her without medical clearance.

The other student was charged with disorderly conduct.

"The student threatened to come back and shoot him after the arrest, the officer contends."

So typical.

No respect for authority what-so-ever.

That is why East High is what it is.

And they can't book her without medical clearance?

What a crock!

The codes of the hood carry right into the school . The threats made by the student are very real . A social worker will now have to negotiate the peace . . ..

WOW. I see East High has not changed since the eighties..Let's just call a spade a spade:


Let's be honest..Y-town is over ruled by "poor" minorities that blame the local, state and federal govenrment for their problems...

Again, call a spade a spade: PARENTING STARTS AND ENDS AT HOME!!!

Now, I am not racist and grew up in the hood. I am sure the comments will flow: "it did not mention the race of the 17 year old girl"...either way, START PARENTING YOUR KIDS OR TAKE A BUS TO WYOMING...

Get physical and threaten a police offer should land you in jail.......

Even living in Florida we get tired of reading this crap....

Is it for this that Martin Luther King marched in Selma?

I wonder if he confronted this person, how she would answer his question of "Why"? I doubt she could.

There are no jobs available and the hood is hurting for money . The cellphone may very well be one of the few possessions that she has . Jobs need to be generated right in the hood . They parents have no money and the kids have no money unless they are dealing in drugs .

Small factories scattered around the hoods linked to a central warehouse may very well be the answer . Our city's leaders main concern is to beautify Wick Park . Job generation should be priority one !
