Theres nothing fishy about it. Im sure if you lived in a town of 3/4 of a million, thats fresno and clovis combined, and knew the area that roosevelt high is in (i lived across the street from RHS 2yrs), you would understand why they have armed police there. That is in a bad side of town and is ran by gangs. Alot of the gang kids think they run the schools in fresno. I wouldnt doubt it was some sort of gang initiation.
As previous posters stated, if you attack a man that is carrying a gun with a baseball bat, you had better expect to get shot. The kid suckered him from behind and split his skull open, could have possibly killed him, and he paid the price for his stupidity. In his situation i would have done the same thing(except i dont carry autos, i carry revolvers) so my clip would not have fallen out on first attempt at reaching.
Just my .02 from a local fresno yocal.
Look Iam just going to say one thing since noone is reading this thread all the way through and automatically jumping on the I hate schism bandwagon. Then I will not check it anymore. So if you still want to continue to rip on a ghost then please send me more useless ATS points. I'm not egotistically whatsoever and I will admit when I was wrong. In my op and some of the others I was wrong. I jumped to a conclusion too fast. And thanks to those that have constructively helped me come to this conclusion. Too all others, I will not waste my time to continue to argue with someone who has not read my previous posts. I just want to say this, bats and violence and cops and medal detectors have no place in school, and in a society that requires these things to be in schools, we have all lost as a society. Soon schools will shut down in fear of their own children. Now thats a world I do not want to live in.
The suspect continued to advance toward Perry with the bat over his head, yelling profanities and telling the officer, "What are you going to do now?"
Dyer said Perry yelled for help, drew a backup firearm from an ankle holster and fired once. The suspect fell backward, Dyer said. While the student was on ground, he yelled. "Go ahead, kill me," Dyer said.
Dyer said Fresno police had had two prior contacts with Carrizales. In February 2005, he was found to be in possession of a butcher knife. Then, last Aug. 8, Carrizales' parents summoned police regarding their son. Dyer said he was precluded from discussing what prompted that contact.
In my op and some of the others I was wrong. I jumped to a conclusion too fast. And thanks to those that have constructively helped me come to this conclusion.
For the record, I have a 9mm and if some huge guy came at me with a bat, I'd start shooting and I wouldn't stop until the 16 round clip was empty.
