Hundreds of students from several schools in Stockton, California, walked out of class to protest guns in the wake of the Florida high school shooting. While some chanted, “No more guns,” others started throwing rocks and damaging property.
NBC News reported that 100 students out of 300 turned rowdy and jumped a fence and started throwing rocks at civilian cars and police cars. A college student spoke to reporters and said she was on her way to class when she noticed her back windows were busted out of her car.
Those students from Stagg, Edison, Chavez, Lincoln, and Village Oak high schools that weren’t vandalizing created traffic issues and disturbances as they stormed through nearby malls in large groups. Police made five arrests on charges of battery on an officer, resisting arrest, stealing an officer’s baton, and vandalism. Apparently, these kids hate guns but are perfectly fine with rocks. They've scheduled another walkout for April on the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.
Watch NBC News’s coverage:
When Stockton students aren’t protesting guns with rocks, they’re planning the next school shooting. On Monday, a 14-year-old student at Venture Academy was arrested and sent to juvenile hall after it was discovered that he had written out plans to shoot up the school. Reports say police found no illegal items at the boy’s home.
Love trumps hate, huh, California?
