POMFRET, Md. – On June 15 at approximately 8:15 a.m., a student from McDonough High School, who was previously suspended, showed up at the school this morning and was asked to leave.

He complied; however, he walked to Robert D. Stethem Educational Center where he was observed inside the gymnasium playing basketball. 

An administrator approached the student and noticed what appeared to be a knife in his pocket. Further investigation revealed the student was in possession of brass knuckles with a blade. The weapon was recovered.

  1. “…a student from McDonough High School, who was previously suspended…”
    OBAMA’S “PROMISE PROGRAM” IS WORKING WELL, I SEE.
    “…he walked to Robert D. Stethem Educational Center where he was observed inside the gymnasium playing basketball.”
    I GUESS THAT ANSWERS MY FIRST QUESTION.
    “…The student’s relatives were contacted and he was released to them.”
    IT DOESN’T SAY “PARENTS” NOW DOES IT…
