New Bloody Shirt for All to Wave
13 Jan 2006
15 year old 8th-Grader Chris Penley from LONGWOOD, Fla. was shot and wounded by a SWAT team officer in a Milwee Middle School bathroom Friday after he pulled out a pellet gun which was altered to look like a real 9mm handgun.

The boy failed to speak with negotiators or to disarm. He feigned a threat of suicide. Finally, he aimed the weapon at the police officer, and was of course, shot.

The rest of the students got a free holiday for the rest of the day.

Penley's friend Kelly Swofford said Penley was having trouble with bullies and over girls.

Marie Hargis promptly began an anti-violence protest outside the school.

This was obviously a case of police brutality and symptomatic of the capitalist system run amok. All guns should be banned, and people should begin accepting gays and eating soy protein.

How the hell does a 15 year old modify a pellet gun to look like a real 9 mm?

Also, didn't that kid watch enough TV to know that you just don't point a gun at a pig with a gun, duh!!

You need to read more stupid. He colored over the orange safety material. Really. Get a god damned education. Also, a 15 year old can modify just aboput anything. Are you really that much of a half-ape?
