Police Called To St. Paul Charter School For Fight

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Police officers were called to a St. Paul school Thursday, after a 13-year-old boy was cut by another teen with a small pocketknife.

Police were called to the scene around 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning at the charter school St. Paul City School, which is located at 643 Virginia St.

Police say the 13-year-old was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after getting in a fight with a 14-year-old boy in the bathroom. The 14-year-old allegedly cut the other teen with a small pocketknife, causing a small abrasion to his chin and a couple of scratches on his neck.

Officers arrested the 14-year-old boy and brought him to police headquarters.

The school’s director, Nancy Dana, said they have 370 students enrolled from pre-K to eighth grade. She said they have a zero-tolerance policy for weapons, but would not comment on the incident.

    This is clearly a hate crime. 14 year olds have been targeting 13 year olds for far too long.

    I don’t think it’s a hate crime and who cares if the kid got good test scores or not! I think the state needs to let parents physically dicipline their kids, period. Then maybe things wouldn’t escalate to this point. Maybe the older kids parent(s) at home aren’t paying him enough attention or care what he does! Some of these kids now a days are raising themselves because the parents are too focused on them selves or a man!

    Yeah! why can’t these children learn to be more respectful. You know, like the grown-ups in this forum!

    This is a great example of of kids not having clear boundries set out for them. It is ultimately the job of parents to teach kids the rules at home are set so they know they know that society also has rules called laws. Parents need to tell their children that there is much Mom or Dad can do when they fail to follow rules (laws). Kids will be wishing it was just getting grounded when they end up being tried as an adult and sent to prison.

    I think when kids do grown up crimes they should be tried as an adult. What the parent should do to her kid, well any parent, they should teach them tough love. Parenting starts @ home, school is not the baby sitter. If your kid keep’s acting up, take them to jail, find a probation officer, introduce them to the jail system, meaning give them a taste of what it would be like, if they did not behave themselves. Let them sit in a jail cell nd have some thinking time. let them meet other people that really have jail time. Scare them straight. This is what I hhad to do to my child when she was 13, now she is in the United States Army. Sitting in Juvi @ such a joung age taught her what she did not want to wind up doing. she is 19 now very good young lady. Scared straight.
