So much crazy stuff has happened in the past week at my school. Normally we're pretty normal, just your run-of-the-mill public High School, but not this week...
The first thing that happened was a kid got arrested for sexual harassment. Apparently he posted some nasty things on MySpace, and a few people printed his comments out and showed them to our resident police officer (we have a police officer at our school instead of a security guard... he has guns). I know this kid pretty well, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was physically abusing them, too. See, ever since I met this kid more than 5 years ago, he has been nothing but an ass. He respects no one and no thing (Oh, the stories I could tell you). So really, I was relieved that he got arrested.
The next thing is this:
A kid recorded this 4 minute video on his cell phone; a fight between a black kid (Deon) and a white kid (Joe). The creepy thing is I know just about everyone in the video. Watch it.
Next, the police officers in our small village just bought some new guns. They are HK53 assault rifles, each with a laser sight and .223-caliber rounds. They say they need these guns to "keep up with the bad guys," but the worst the "bad guys" in our village get is what you see in the video above. Besides, the police already have pistols and shotguns at their disposal. They really don't need these guns.
And finally, just yesterday, one of my best friends was arrested. I have no idea why, I only have the testimonials of a few kids who said they saw him getting into a squad car. He could just have been brought in to be questioned about said sexual harasser, since the two of them used to hang out a whole lot, but I'm not sure. My friend has talked a lot about drinking and doing drugs, but I never thought he really did any of that...
So yeah. My school is a mess. All of this in the past week. I'm REALLY looking forward to spring break next week.
