The Johnston County Eagle Scout who was expelled from Princeton High School for accidentally bringing a shotgun on campus was offered an opportunity to attend an alternative school so he can graduate Thursday. ...
In a news release sent to ABC11 Thursday, an attorney for the district denied Withrow was actually expelled or suspended for 365 days as previously reported and as officials told ABC11 Wednesday. ...
Whatever happens with Johnston County schools, Withrow's future education appears to be taken care of. Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. has offered the teen a full scholarship to the university.

See you in court.
Why should he have to change schools? He isn’t a criminal. Agree with the sentiment: See you in court.
Not backpedaling. Typical liberal/progressive tactics. 1) Take an extreme measure, 2) ride out critics for as long as possible,3) then offer a fig leaf. In the end they win by moving their intolerant behavior further into mainstream.
Meanwhile, “little” Trayvon Martin was only suspended for a week for marijuana, burglar’s tools and stolen goods and another week for actually assaulting a bus driver. And is now a hero and a martyr to millions of people. The world turned upside down.
There are a different set of rules for while males who are upstanding members of society. (BTW, there is a black female on the school board.)
If he claimed he was a gay eagle scout he would probably get full Yale scholarship.
You are probably correct. I tried to talk my daughter into writing on her college applications that she was a "male, trans-species homosexual trapped in a female body."
I got some.
You any good with knots?
OBVIOUSLY SARCASM in case the idiot thought police can’t cope.
I give my kids similar sounding advice that they always refuse to follow. For some reason I’m not taken seriously by them.
Well, personally I’m rootin for a big payday for this kid and his folks....
Who is the snitch who squealed on this guy?
“Who is the snitch who squealed on this guy?”
In the original article I seem to recall that he was overheard on the phone to his mother about coming to school and picking up the gun by someone in the administration. He said that school policy forbade him leaving the campus after his initial arrival under pain of discipline. That was his first mistake.
I hear ya... but at least the little demon is dead.
We know the name of the kid, I think they should publish the name of the school employee who ratted the kid out.
Shouldn’t he or she be considered a “hero” for “saving” the school from this gun toting monster?
“alternative school” = “reform school.”
“I think they should publish the name of the school employee who ratted the kid out.”
Nah, he/she is a RAT weasel. They enjoy “applying the law,” but want to do it anonymously. I am constantly amazed and what passes for “educators” today. They are the highest paid “migrant workers” in the country. Just look and where this “Superintendent of the Year” from the Atlanta Schools has been and the money she’s ripped off the taxpayers for. I only hope she goes to jail for the rest of her miserable life for what she’s done. Another “Holder’s Person” caught stealing.
