Student Charged With BB Pistol At School

A 16-year-old high school student is accused of bringing a weapon onto school grounds.

Kinston police charged Quashon Bryant, after Kinston High School officials say they found him in possession of an BB pistol on Tuesday.

The principal says an anonymous tip told them Bryant had a weapon, and they found it in his backpack.

He is charged with misdemeanor possession of a weapon on school property and released on a $500 bond. Bryant has a December 15th court date.

    Marie, wow, I feel dumber after reading your post. If some folks would have one or two kids instead of five or six by different "baby daddies", then maybe they could keep up with what their kids are doing. It seems like the ones having the most kids, should be the ones that should be "fixed". Can't afford the first kid you have...shot in the arm at least to avoid other kids from coming into the world to be "raised" by parents who have an 8th grade education and can't afford to feed them without government assistance. I mean, really...you're a prime example of what's wrong with our country now.

    I find it amazing that someone is ignorant enough to compare ENC public schools with a well funded, well managed private school! Look at the stats please, ENC schools are among the lowest performing schools in the ENTIRE STATE! With classes that on average have 30 students to 1 teacher, lack of funding, and then dealing with gang banger wanna be's that take guns to school it is no wonder that people choose private schools! My son would sit at home and be home schooled before he was turned loose to run with the untamed, uneducated children that lurk the hall's and make learning something that is thought of AFTER security/safety has been addressed. Seriously, what does the government run that has been run with success? You really want to leave it to a bunch of state workers to educate your children?

    Dear Anonymous, 248 sets of parents disagree with you, many sacrifice a lot to give their children the opportunity that you dismiss. My daughter goes to a private school in NB. She had to complete 3 interviews, write 2 essays to get in. As the classes are full, I'm assuming that some applicants did not make it. I have found the staff to well qualified and passionate to teach the children in their charge. Most have masters several have Doctorates. All could make more money elsewere. The children are respectful and want to learn. 92% of the recent graduating class were selected to their 1st choice school. I personally know one who was an early selectee to NC State (only 8% get an early selection). Sure does sound like a bunch of losers. I don't think that you know what you are talking about Anonymous. Fortunately for my daughter her parents don't share your opinions. My daughter deserves the best that I can do for her

    You are right anonymous at 06:42 with all the budget cuts and layoffs we don't know what is going to happen. I think people should start praying and stop judging people. This world is going down fast. It is becoming scary especially when the hospitals start laying off.

    It is amazing that so many talk of private schools in ENC. Many of these schools have uncertified teachers and lack in many of the higher classes that are available in public schools. Like it or not your children will at some point have to deal with the public. If things keep going the way they are the majority of us are going to poor as well and you won't be able to afford that private school. I guarantee you that if two kids that have equal grades are applying for the same scholarship and one is from public school and one is from private school the public school kid will win out every time.

    Maire, I really don't know where to begin, your lack of education is clear, ignorance is no excuse for children who don't listen, and wont abide laws. It's these children with no true leadership, male or female, no community help, that are the ruin of this country. Lazy, young, uneducated people that have more kids than they can handle, and the unwillingness to care. Stories like this, and posts like Maries, reaffirms that my kids will always go to private school.

    Just because this idiotic law is on the books does not make it logical. It is a BB gun!!! It is not a weapon and much less dangerous than the injury you could inflict with a pencil. These laws do nothing to keep kids safe because they will never know if a kid brings a real gun to school, with ill intentions, until the shooting starts.
