Today’s winners are The Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Spectrum Junior-Senior High School Principal Raymond Parrish. They get the award for the following-
A student at Spectrum Junior-Senior High School was arrested earlier this month after he passed gas and turned off his classmate’s computers, according to a report released Friday by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the report, the incident occurred Nov. 4, when the 13-year-old boy “continually disrupted his classroom environment” by purposely breaking wind. He then shut off some computers other students were using.
A school resource officer placed the boy under arrest after he confessed about his behavior, according to the report. He was charged with disruption of school function and released to his mother.
Hasn’t anyone heard of detention? Note- Spectrum is not a ordinary school. It is specifically designed for dropout prevention That probably means the students there aren’t the best behaved. Considering what this one student did, it seems to me having them arrested in counter productive in light of the school’s objectives.
Bottom line- That school and law enforcement officials feel this was a criminal activity is just absurd. Therefore I name the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and Spectrum Junior-Senior High School Principal Raymond Parrish today’s Knuckleheads of the Day.
