Three Students Arrested At J.H. Rose

There's been yet another fight at a Greenville high school, the third there in less than two weeks.

Pitt County Schools spokeswoman Heather Mayo says three girls were arrested by Greenville police after a fight at J.H. Rose today.

Mayo says the girls, between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, started fighting during lunch in the school's courtyard. Two resource officers were able to grab the teens and handcuff them without using pepper spray.

Last Wednesday three boys got into a fight where pepper spray was used to break it up. Two girls were arrested after pepper spray had to be used to break up a fight on November 14th at the same school.

J.H. Rose has since increased supervision during lunchtime when close to 1200 students are passing through the halls.

The school system says there could be additional arrests in today's disturbance.

    When my son was in the fourth grade, he was taught the n-word by a black teacher of who within weeks accused him of using it another child in class... and then had the nerve to state "it all starts in the home" I never... I raised my child to be fair, I raised my child not to hate, I raised my child to respect others for how they act... not the color of their skin or even their religion... today with others of all backgrounds, he goes to war, for our country, and for our belief in freedom amd choice. Put the kids of today in uniforms and bring back the principals paddle, it is long over due, because there does not seem to be anyone else parenting them.

    in my school, the black kids were the bullies. i remember one girl thought i stepped on her toe (mistaken identity) and she slung me into a door post by my neck. no one said anything to her. i would say about eighty percent or more of the fights were the black kids, either with eachother or pounding on someone for not saying 'excuse me'. if people are wondering where racial hatred festers, its in your public schools, starting at about sixth grade. i was shocked when i went to college and realized i didnt have to fear black people. anyways, im pretty sure this behavior isnt taught in schools or in general society. i think theres alot of parents that need to grow up and teach their children to be respectful of others, and to respect themselves enough not to behave like thugs. i hate the thought of my children feeling like i did when i went to school. by the way, i am very against racism, i was just stating a statistical observation for anyone frothing at the mouth..

    Not ever child has two sides. I teach a lot of good students ever day that make their parents proud. Just FYI Alpha Female.

    Sometimes a child can inherit a bad attitude, but I think parental supervision at home would alleviate a lot of problems. But sadly a lot of parents cannot afford to be home every night.

    I have a child in Rose. This is getting out of control. Does every child have to fear for their safety? You can't even get an education without fear of being harmed.

    If parent only knew what their kids were really like when they weren't around. Every child has two sides....the side the parents see..and the side everyone else see when parents aren't around. I wonder how many comments I'm going to get saying......"not my kid, my child is never disrespectful....I raised them better than that". LOL so naive

    I do agree with Bill and SSGT,there have always been fights in schools and there are going to continue to be fights because of all these different personalities. Fighting is not the best solution, but why are they focusing on the few bad things instead of focusing on the good. I'm sure the good outweigh the bad. The school being in the projects isn't a legitimate argument either because I'm sure some good parents are there too. Also,I wonder why people keep saying it's the parents fault. That is so not true,we all have the sweetest kids but once they mingle with society starting with Pre K,they start to learn some of the bad things.I know children that grew up in church with pastors as parents,children of officers,I know people, black and white,that grew up with the best parents that show all the love they possibly could,but some of them are the most terrible and disrepectful people today.In actual fights or comments like ours, attack problems not people.

    I grew up in a college town just a little larger than Greenville. All the "bad seeds" were sent to an alternative school where they would not be a disruption to kids who wanted to succeed. Maybe the school board should look into the possibilty of a school for juvenile deliquents.
