School Crime Report for Jan. 11, 2013

The Newton County Sheriff's Office provides School Resource Officers to each high school and middle school in Newton County. The following is a list of reports filed by these officers that have been received this week by the Newton Citizen:


-- A teacher complained of being threatened to a school resource officer on Dec. 17, when around 9:15 a.m. a student was allegedly being disruptive in her classroom. When she asked him to correct his behavior, he allegedly began cussing her, approached her in a menacing manner and threatened to slap her. Also, he allegedly threatened the rest of the students in the classroom telling them not to hit the panic button to summon the resource officer. When the resource officer did arrive, Christian Guadalupe-Jimenez, 17, of Clairmont Drive was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats.

--A deputy reported that on Jan. 5 around 2 p.m. he was called to Alcovy High School in reference to a fight in the gym. He questioned the coaching staff and was told that the JV women's basketball team was playing Henry County High School. "During the game two players got into an argument/fight. While arguing, numerous adults and other fans rushed the court and began fighting also." The report goes on to say a parent was struck in the face by an unknown assailant, causing his nose and mouth to bleed. Newton EMS provided medical treatment to the man and no other injuries were reported. " ... all other parties and staff were escorted off the premises," the report states.


A deputy reported on Jan. 5 that around 5:45 p.m. he was leaving the NHS gymnasium following the Newton/Eastside basketball game when someone yelled there was a fight in the parking lot. He said he ran to the area and saw several fights taking place. More deputies and the Covington Police Department responded to the scene and several people were arrested for disorderly conduct, including two juveniles. Adults facing charges are Leala Roberts and Brittany Nesbit, both of 15 Shadowbrook Ct., and London Carroll of 1604 Burlington Ct., Conyers.


-- The school resource officer was notified on Dec. 10 by a student that an item had been stolen.

-- The school resource officer was notified on Dec. 10 that a student's cell phone had been stolen.

-- A woman employed by Newton High School informed the resource officer on Dec. 14 that her vehicle had been damaged while at the school.

-- The school resource officer reported on Dec. 20 around 10:30 a.m. he was called to the administration office due to a student who was being disruptive. The officer asked the student to step inside the administrator's office. The student reluctantly went inside the office and had to be asked three times to sit down. The administrator began explaining a disciplinary problem and the student became angry and called the administrator a racist and threatened to harm her if he saw her on the street. No charges were made.

Out of control. But no one seems to care.

My husband said it was an Alcovy student at the EHS game that caused this so that should be noted.

As for the Alcovy basketball team involved with a brawl, you simply kick every player off the team who was involved or whose parent was involved. But that wont happen because no one has the guts. Get ready for even more problems due to a lack of discipline. The parents wont do the right thing but the school system can. And if the coaches wont handle it then NCSS should suspend them. It's time to get serious!

None of this activity suprises me after being a substitue teacher in the NCSS. Students know that there is little that adminastration can & will do (they don't want to get a bad report card) ISS is a joke (most are repeat attendees), students can stay in school until they are 21 & with the right birtday until almost 22. My opinion is that adult age students have a life style to support & have convenient access to a large group to help them live the life they wish. Many of these issues start at home with the footsteps parents make or don't make for the children.

Newton administrator is threatened and called a racist, I wonder where this thug learned to use the word racist. Why was the child not charged with threatening the administrator, this thug should have gone straight to jail and kicked out of school. By using the word racist this thug shows how smart he is. Also, threatening a woman he is a real man. As for the fight at the AHS basketball game, a ghetto school and the parents look as though they taught the kids their street skills, the parent or parents involved should be banned from all school activities forever and their kid should be kicked off the team. I can see the parent now, obama phone, EBT card, section 8, and 5 kids by the time she is 27 and no dad because she just has kids to get more welfare. I almost forgot the free lunch also.

(shaking my head) This wont get any better until NCSS starts standing up to these thugs and their parents. They need to learn respect somehow.

Yet NCSS wastes money on bringing in consultants to tell teachers how to teach. They already know how to, they just cant do it in this environment! NCSS needs someone at the county level in charge of discipline who has a spine

Oh well. The school system keeps this reporter plenty to report about.

What?!? There is a running column in the paper now about "school crime"?

If i was ever unsure about whether I made the right decision a few years ago to move my family and kids out of Newton County and away from what used to be a half-way decent place to live, I certainly am sure now.

Good Grief.
