Student Detained at Calaveras High School after He Reportedly Talked of Bringing Gun to School

San Andreas, CA...Today, 3-6-18, Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the Calaveras High School located in San Andreas for a report that a student had mentioned bringing a firearm to campus. It was reported that during a discussion regarding lock down drills and school safety, the 15 year old male student was heard making statements similar to “I guess I better not bring a gun that day”. This same student was overheard talking about guns in another conversation. School staff was made aware of the comments and notified the Sheriff’s Office.




Deputies conducting the investigation confirmed that there was no specific expressed threats made and no weapons in the student’s possession. Deputies arrested the student, removing him from campus and transported him to juvenile probation while parent notification is underway. The Sheriff’s Office is committed to completing full and immediate investigations involving threats and/or weapons at our local schools. Inappropriate comments or statements, whether students think they are a joke or made as a threat, will be taken seriously with just and serious consequences.

Can someone explain why arresting a 15 year old for the 'crime' of not thinking will be helpful? Now he has two strikes to deal with - he's stupid and he has an arrest record. Sounds like a plan to send him down the wrong path in life instead of straightening him out before it's too late.

      Just re-read it. He did get arrested. That's still a black mark. Seems like hauling him in for questioning and scaring the s**t out of him might have been sufficient when it's obvious that this is just a stupid kid with a big mouth.

      1973, I brought my 30-30 hunting rifle on the high school bus from Groveland to Sonora High on a Monday morning after deer hunting over the weekend, I put it in my locker at school and then took it home after school...... we built and worked on guns in shop class.....everybody's truck had a gun rack in the back window with rifles in them, today you say "Gun" at school and you get arrested, What happened?
      Why didn't all those guns back then kill anyone?.....some of them were the same caliber and action as the bad guns of today? what happened?.....

        Really? You have to ask: "what happened." The mental hospitals were closed. They threw them out to blindside others just going about their daily lives. Now they have mass procreated! It now will be a very long time to get the dysfunctional mentally ill population back down. It is time to remove these people from the general public.

    Think about Florida, they refused to arrest that kid even though they knew he was a potential problem. Even joking about bringing a gun to school has to get at least the kid's cage rattled.

    Not saying this local boy is guilty or a potential danger or anything like that. Here is one response to some of the questions being asked here.

    COLUMBINE STUDENT'S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER after Columbine-

    Guess our national leaders didn't expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

    They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The following is a portion of the transcript:
    "Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

    "The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.

    "In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death.

    Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent.

    I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

    Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
    Your words are empty air.
    You've stripped away our heritage,
    You've outlawed simple prayer.
    Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
    And precious children die.
    You seek for answers everywhere,
    And ask the question "Why?"
    You regulate restrictive laws,
    Through legislative creed.
    And yet you fail to understand,
    That God is what we need!

    "Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

    "As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!

    My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"

    Wait a minute folks. The report says he said something "similar to". We don't know what he said exactly. One thing may sound like a cynical comment and another may sound more like a threat. Given the state of things, police are on the safer side in being more proactive until the status of things are clear.

    A police officer can arrest you on suspicion that a crime was committed and that you are suspected of committing that crime. However if after an investigation, it is determined there is no crime, then there is no basis to charge you. I believe in California that until there is a formal charging, there is no recording of the arrest.

    maybe this is insensitive of me, but it kinda sounds like the kid was cracking a joke. that is something I would have said as a kid during a drill... it seems like sarcasm. They would give us a heads up about locker checks when i was in school and i would crack jokes like 'welp, I better find somewhere else to stash my guns and drugs'- never done drugs and don't own a gun.

    We are very close to 1984, where thoughtcrime is a thing...

    Because if the current situation with any threat needing to be taken seriously, the police are attempting to impress on the teenage brain that any comments about bringing a gun to school is serious. Hopefully it will sink in to the kids and they, and adults, will start thinking before talking.

      So, just making the mention of "guns" in a conversation is wrong now? So, if kids go hunting and are talking at school about for instance " I was carrying my gun down the trail looking for that buck...." it's wrong to have that conversation or any mention of gun? This is a little extreme, sorry, think again there poster.

      #1 it's an election year, anything to get Rick more votes and look good, sorry, won't work for me.

      #2 that student is 15 y.o. There is a law that went through uping the age of Miranda Rigbts and taking a child into custody 15 years of age and under. If he was read those without a council or parent there I sure hope the sherriff thinks twice on that, as I see a HUGE lawsuit on that. I know another school that did this recently and a dept that ignored that law. It was 13 and under BUT you can go retrospective to this new law. I sure hope the parents ask a good lawyer about this one I mentioned.

      #3 sherriff dept saw no treat or cause to be a threat and no weapons, then why are they holding him?

      #4 school is making this worse than it is, of course an agenda just as with another school or 2 in this county I know of.

      I think some better really look at the whole story/investigation before jumping "the gun."

      That's the problem. It's not the job of the police to teach right and wrong
      It's not the governments job to teach the children right and wrong it falls on the parents, family and society to teach respect... however in today's society with all the governments help and hand outs, making it easier to have broken homes, crime goes unpunished. Get arrested... get out with a promise to appear... over and over again.... how about all the drugs that the big pharmaceutical companies hand out (big money), to help with all the new born mental illness that just came about in the last 30 years or so.
      Oh wait that's not it either, it's the guns fault...... all of the sudden guns are killing innocent people... that's it ban guns, end of problem

No sense of community anymore.
Posted on: 2018-03-06 17:44:49   By: Anonymous
 
It use to be that children were taught to not tarnish the family name in the community. There was a sense of community and everyone made an effort to know others, often attending the community events to get to know others in the community. The deviant were ostracized and did not fit in. The worst of the deviant, disfunctional mentally ill and child molesters were shortly ran out of town. The kid must not have a coherent parent. Not bringing up the subject to a child about opening their pie hole ,with words that are unacceptable because of the recent events, is very suspect and telling of the type of parent involved.

            AR-15-platform rifles are among the most popular firearms being sold. They are today’s modern sporting rifle.
            The AR in “AR-15” rifle stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.”
            AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun. Automatic firearms have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934.

He opened his mouth and said something typical of a teenager. He broke no law. Thank God there is nothing better for law enforcement to do here in this county. I'd be surprised if his parents don't sue. Are we still living in the great US of A? The rights of men and women are being compromised to suite their plans.

    I believe you are missing the point. Kids are practicing and learning the act of establishing themselves in the community. Words give insight to a persons inside self and soul. Saying things that intentionally hurt, intimidate, frighten, or terrorize others is a sure way to find yourself on the outside of the community Words have always had consequences. It is possible to use words as a form of bullying.

    I hope his parents do sue, this *bleep* could affect him the rest of his life. Colleges will see this *bleep*.

    Kid gets arrested for making a joke in passing, it is crazy. He didn't say he was going to shoot up a school.
