Three middle schoolers climbed onto their own school roof after classes one day. They never expected that police officers with assault rifles would arrive screaming at them and telling them to submit. When police arrived they began screaming at the boys to get down. One officer pointed a shotgun at them and another retrieved his M16 and targeted the children. When the families of the boys arrived, they were threatened with arrest as well for trying to calm the situation down.

Port Charlotte Middle School in Southwest Florida justified the police response by saying the children knew they shouldn’t have climbed onto the roof.  “I don’t care if they’re in kindergarten or if they’re seniors in high school, they know the rules.” said Mike Riley, a spokesperson for the school district.

    One day these pigs will regret these actions..

    • Joe Clam

      You wrote that a month ago. Any of the pigs regretting it yet?… Just as I thought…

        I’m not really sure what you are saying here, meaning who your anger is directed towards?

        • Joe Clam

          My anger is at the cops of course, and even more so at that asshole Mike Riley. Your month ago comment only highlights the fact these pigwad fascist bastards rarely if ever are made to regret their behavior. If your comment was a year ago the outcome would still probably be the same: Punishment and abuse for kids behaving like kids, no consequences whatsoever for adults behaving like nazis.

    Mike Riley seems like a delightful person… -_-

  • Joe Clam

    Mike Riley is precisely the kind of vicious nazi goosestepping imbecile who doesn’t belong within 100 miles of anybody’s children.

  • Dominic Vietti

    How many of you have seen the property damage this sort of thing does? Loser kids get arrested. Deal with it.

    • Jay Brown

      Were they damaging property and if they weren’t how does that justify the response? And how are these kids losers?

  • citizen

    Facebook tells me somebody replied to one of my comments. For some reason I can’t see the reply, or even my original comment. WTF?

  • Susan P

    Mike Riley needs to IMMEDIATELY lose his job. His remarks show that he has no business being within 100 miles of a child.

    This type of “over the top” response to children climbing on a roof is totally unacceptable on the part of every adult involved.
