Students Suspended After Wrestling Away a Loaded Gun from Another Student on a Bus

Quote:
A 16-year-old Cypress Lake High, Florida student in Fort Myers wrestled a loaded .22 caliber gun away from another teen on the schoolbus ride home this week and was slapped with a suspension in return.

The student told there was "no doubt" he saved a life after grappling for the revolver being aimed point-blank at another student on Tuesday.

"I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there," said the suspended student, not identified, because of safety concerns. "Not taking no pity."

The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.

Authorities confirmed the gun was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified as Quadryle Davis, was "pointing the gun directly" at the other student and "threatening to shoot him."

That's when, the 16 year-old teenager and 2 others on the bus tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all 3 were suspended.

"How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?" he asked.

The school's referral slip said he was given an "emergency suspension" for being involved in an "incident" with a weapon.

Lee County School District spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said in a statement that "If there is a potentially dangerous situation, Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing."

"Those kids had to fight for their lives," the mother of the suspended teen said. "All the kids that was involved in this they should have a pat on their backs because they did the right thing to save someone from burying their child."

The suspended teen is allowed to go back to school Monday.

Meanwhile, the student accused of pointing the weapon has been charged only with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon "without intent" to kill.

The sheriff's office said the investigation is ongoing and that the charges are "based on our findings at this time."

The bus camera wasn't working properly at that time so investigators can only work with what witnesses saw.

Im sure its just a procedure thing while they investigate and tick off all the boxes they need. Might be a good idea to keep their head down for a few days after a incident like this just incase a mate of the pussy with a gun turns up. Good on them risking their lives for a classmate

Could also be for fear of reprisals. I think this might be one instance where there was actually some logic to the decision.

You suspend the CHILDREN from the school in order to cover your ass legally.

You cannot just say "you cant come in tomorrow" and hope for the best.

If an incident were to occur on school grounds and no legal paper was signed off (the suspension) to keep them off the property, you'll be looking at a hefty law suit.

Thats the reason why they were suspended. If the school wanted to get rid of them, they'd expel them.

Re: Students Suspended After Wrestling Away a Loaded Gun from Another Student on a Bu

they had to suspend him..... im sure that football players friends werent too please watching their boy get in trouble. they probably suspended him for his own protection! where i grew up, it doesnt matter what you did... if you got a person in trouble, you were at high risk of getting your ass kicked by that person's friends, even if you did the right thing.

Those kids should all be rewarded and the nutcase with the gun should be charged with attempted murder.
