South Carolina student dead, officer hurt after fight at school
An altercation between a South Carolina high school student and a school resource officer ended tragically Friday with the student dead of a gunshot wound and the officer hospitalized after being stabbed.
Police officers in body armor vests are on the scene after violence at a school near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The incident took place about 8:25 a.m., and both the officer and the 16-year-old student were transported to Conway Medical Center, where the student died, said Sgt. Robert Kegler of the Horry County Police Department.
No information is available at this time as to why the student fought the officer or exactly what happened. But it seems as if the student went to the officer's office with the intent of starting some sort of drama.
It's sad that high school students are so full of rage in today's society with no real outlet. They feel oppressed, shunned, outcast, what have you, and with no way to vent these frustrations, they turn violent in the worst ways.
Was it worth it? No. It never is. Did it happen anyway? Sadly, yes.
