After Wrestling Gun Away from Student on Bus, Teen Suspended for His Heroism

School Bus

What would you do in this scenario:

You’re back in high school, riding the bus home, when another kid pulls out a gun and holds it to the head of another student and threatens to shoot them?

If you answered that you’d wrestle the gun away from the other kid, saving the life of at least of of your classmates, I’d call you a “hero”.

Apparently that’s not what the school thinks. Instead of being lauded as a hero, the boy was given an “emergency three day suspension” for being “part of an incident  where a “weapon was involved”.

 “The student grappled the gun away from the 15-year-old suspect on the bus ride home Tuesday after witnesses say he aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him. The student, who Fox 4 has agreed not to identify because he fears for his safety, says there’s ‘no doubt’ he saved a life by disarming the gunman… ‘I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,’ the student said. ‘Not taking no pity.’ The student says he wrestled the .22 caliber RG-14 Revolver away from the suspect, a football player, who witnesses say threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend. ‘No doubt,’ the student said, ‘he was going to shoot him point blank.’ The teen we spoke to and authorities both confirm the Revolver was loaded. According to the arrest report the suspect, who Fox 4 is not naming because he is a minor, was ‘pointing the gun directly’ at another student and ‘threatening to shoot him.’”
