EASTON, Md. (WJZ) Outrage is growing after two high school students are suspended one taken away in handcuffs over items found in their lacrosse equipment bags. Those items are banned from school property.
A police officer came and took him away in handcuffs and they said Give us 40 minutes, we have to process him, Laura Dennis said. So they did mug shots and they fingerprinted. I was able to pick him up from the police department 45 minutes later.

So? What did they find in their equipment bags?
So... what did they find in their bags?
A lighter, pen knife and leatherman. Geez.
I’ll just jump to a conclusion that these are probably white boys.....wonder if they ever check the basketball bus?....of course not...
Anybody who's ever had a lacrosse stick knows that those are essential tools for string repair.
If there isn't more to this story (which, it being one of those types of stories, there could be), then some of these "administrators" need to be slapped down very, very hard.
my solution.....everybody in the school start carrying a leatherman like tool (maker of leatherman apparently a closet leftist) or a pen knife.....I’d like to see the school do this to all the kids...fools and idiots...
As if Baltimore cops didn’t have bigger problems than pen knives in lacrosse players’ bags.
This is beyond stupid. There is no indication that the boys did anything with the tools then to simply possess them with their equipment.
Nuts as it is yet this is the kind of stuff that shows people what happens when you put nanny-state liberal Democrats in charge of school districts.
Pen knife and lighter vs lacross stick.
Next they will arrest the baseball team for having Bats...
Bureaucrats and other petty tyrants love to hide behind their anonymity. The parents need to figure out the names of everyone involved in this decision and start handing out fliers and marching with protest signs where the NAMES of those people figure prominently. Seriously. It works.
Yeah my daughter, a figure skater, had a screwdriver in her skate bag for her skates. Wonder what those kooks would have thought about that. Looney Tunes.
My friend used a lighter to melt her mascara before putting it on. Wonder if she should have been arrested.
They ought to be fired and have their pensions ripped right out of their greedy little hands, and then, sued individually!
Uh, you go ahead and search the basketball bus...
america has so quickly become a police state at so many levels. Historically, I don’t know any precedents which had things getting better without getting much much worse first once a republic reaches this state.
I had to break out the smelling salts just reading that.
Lucky they didn’t find a BB, they would have them for attempted murder.
exactly right. They love their anonymity. they love to hide and so avoid blame. Name the b@st@rds.
Public school is child abuse.
Zero tolerance public school administrators are simply Pharaohs in their own personal taxpayer funded fiefdoms.
