It is obvious that he waited until school hours so that he could use this as an excuse for getting out of class. I think a week of detention should be in order here. Possibly wait to take the bullet out until after the detention. That should teach him.

What a strange article. Am sure the real story has been twisted out of recognition by some idiot journalist trying to get it to fit his world-view.
Why does one go to an elementary school for medical care? Are school nurses trained to treat gun-shot wounds? Why wait? Can I assume the wound was so superficial, the youngster probably thought it wasn’t even worth mentioning?
Whatever this article is - it is not the truth.

Hood, church members and community groups had already scheduled a weekend rally in Lawndale to call on Gov. Pat Quinn to fund a full Cease Fire program in the community. Those funds would bring three additional violence interrupters and two additional outreach workers to try and bring an end to the warfare, Hood said.
violence interrupters....WTF are those ?
Are they LEO, Kungfoo fighters, hot chicks in bikinis, swat team members, robots on segways ???
Two additional outreach workers will definitively do the trick to get these gangbangers on the straight and narrow...
I wonder if they realize how absurd the whole thing sounds?

Has he been so brainwashed that school is the center of the universe?
