this bitch

it ain’t fake i been going to this school for 3 years and i know the teacher who got shot and the next day we got checked by security
can y’all relax it was a toy gun


These kids be learning from you? By your comments it’s obvious you don’t know anything .


this kid will be a future delinquent . wtf are you doing with a bb gun and wtf are your fucking parents


The thing is, his parents didn’t know he had owned one. He is a pretty decent (still really annoying) kid but this practically ruined and destroyed his reputation. Even though he is a close friend of mine, what he did was really stupid!


I knew him too. It was a pretty stupid decision of him to bring a weapon like that to school. I hope he’s changed over time and has learned from the mistakes he’s made in the past. Although he made a pretty stupid decision, I understand that it was just an accident. We all make accidents.

Replying to dummies

No this shit aint fake the next day “12” put metal detectors at the entrance so everykid got checked




to be honest, you guys should chill just a little. Yes, it was his mistake that he shot a teacher with a BB gun in the ankle, but he is still a good kid! yes, he can also be quite annoying, but how would you guys feel if you did a small little mistake that led to you getting expelled


I know, but what if she did die? Just cause she didn’t die because of it doesn’t make it okay. Just sayin’ not hatin.


Remember Bob the handyman in this school? Good guy. I saw him on Maurice ave. He’s still a nice guy


Omg I’m going to 6th grade next year,and that’s the school I swear I’m transferring from the school next to it which goes up to 5th grade buy when students asked on the tour of the middle school teachers said it is not true but we heard rumored the day after and that school holdss alot,more scary rum orange that have not been confirmed
