High School Basketball Shooting Results In Arrest Of SC Teen

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies have arrested a 16-year-old in connection with a shooting after a South Carolina high school basketball game.

Spartanburg County sheriff's spokesman Tony Ivey said Randall Dewon Armstrong of Cowpens was arrested Friday night and will be charged as an adult.

Ivey said Saturday that Armstrong refused to answer police questions and denied any involvement in the shooting. He was being held at the state Juvenile Justice Department awaiting a bail hearing. Ivey said Armstrong did not yet have an attorney.

According to a police report, one man at the scene said his leg was grazed by a bullet, but he did not want to press charges. Witnesses told deputies shots were fired from the parking lot near the gym and several suspects left in a dark sedan.

    Neo and Jethro Bodine write the same comments everytime they come on this site. Everybody child(especially if they think the child is black) who committs a crime parents are on welfare. I mean everytime. They don't have any proof that they are and I think that Neo and Jethro are the ones on welfare. Wasting the taxpayer money tapping on their computer day in and day off.

    Just keep this out of NC. They may have to look real closely at places such as Plymouth, Goldsboro, Kinston, and Rocky Mount and make sure it does not happen there.

    "Daisy Dufus", I have never received a welfare check, but there are entire neighborhoods that have subsisted off of these reparations for decades. If my comment hit home and you are one of these people who had children you had no business having, it was intended to do just that. These children hit the streets because of lack of supervision and parenting skills as soon as they are able to run from "the man" and never get life figured out. At least, they get nothing figured out except how to prey off of others in society, then they get sent off and the momma who never disciplined him cries about an injustice being done. If we are going to make it profitable for them to be brought into this world we also need to invest in the prisons to house them.

    Where did Neo and Jethro Bodine get these facts? Sounds like they assume that all those involved with a crime are just like them!

    One thing to add though: When a majority of the population becomes this way (or those that know better tolerate this behavior) won't this now be considered 'normal' behavior and thus be expected of the masses? Or is that what we are seeing now?

    To Neo: Yup!

    This is what happens when you give away welfare checks, encouraging people who have no parenting skills or morals to have children they could otherwise never afford to feed. Society is rearing the beast that will eat it.
