Fight Between N.O., Houston Students Leads To School Riot

Why can't we all just get along?

http://www.click2houston.com/news/4967912/detail.html

"We are trying to help them and they are coming over here beating up our children. I don't think it's fair," one parent told KPRC Local 2.

"One of the Jones' kids tossed a soft drink can into the group of News Orleans' kids," HISD spokesman Terry Abbot said.

Now is that anyway for us to be treating our guests, parent?

"Take (the New Orleans students) out of Jones. That's what they need to do and go to their own school. That's what they need to do," Houston parent Carol Rigsby said.

This wouldn't be the first time displaced New Orleansians were causing very serious trouble.

Seems like you just can't do some people any favors.  And judging by the very trashy attitudes of the displaced that I have met, I have to say I'll be glad when they go back.

That article has nothing to do with the situation at Jesse Jones High. In addition, it appears that "displaced New Orleansians" were not the instigators.

Here-let me post this one more time:"One of the Jones' kids tossed a soft drink can into the group of News Orleans' kids," HISD spokesman Terry Abbot said.

I'm not commenting on anyone's trashy attitudes. I'm only repeating the facts.

Well, they (whomever engineered this marvelous plan) took kids from one ghetto, and transplanted them into another one. We have enough problems with rival cross-town gangs, now we have to deal with "MagNOLiA" vs. Southpark H-Town. Go figure..

I just can't wait until the new "K - trina" rap song drops. :rolleyes:

Man, has this storm turned things upside down, or what? :P

I just saw the 10pm newscast. How pathetic: "They should go to they own school." Indeed how pathetic Mrs. Rigsby.

Yup..

Well, score another "gold" for Houston. We can put this gem right next to Enron on the mantle.

I think its sad that this is even an issue. I wonder though, why couldn't temporary schools for New Orleans high schoolers be opened here? It seems high school is where the most conflict occurs.

WAIT. The NATION OF ISLAM is allowed to council in a Public School? The same school system you can't sing "Silent Night" in during December?

a little mention about Mayor White's Ministerial Advisory Board

from the article:

The program is being organized through religious communities because they have corps of volunteers called to help, said the Rev. Willie R. Davis, pastor of Greater St. Paul's Missionary Baptist Church.

"That is the mandate of God: Love thy neighbor as thyself," said Davis, president of the ministerial advisory board to Mayor Bill White.

contrast that thought with this one from another member of the Mayor's Ministerial Board, which was enacted under the leadership of Mayor Lee P. Brown:
Robert Muhammad, southwest regional minister of the Nation of Islam, said leaders must address the concerns of Houston students. Muhammad, along with other members of the Ministerial Advisory Board to the mayor of Houston, will be on hand to counsel families at Jones today.

"We must address these legitimate complaints of our children. We can't sweep this under the rug," he said. "Those who have always been the least, the lost in this city (Houston) would feel somewhat neglected.""The welcome mat in Houston is already being pulled back," he said.

Michael Lewis says, from his perspective, the students are just mirroring the frustration of many adults.

"You have ladies that have been trying to get on welfare and food stamps, trying to get government assistance, housing. And then evacuees coming here and getting it instantly," said Lewis. "The whole city is a melting pot."

Don't even get me started on these welfare divas.

Even Switzerland and Germany have reported on this.

Mabye we can flood our own ghettos and send them to Oregon.

Thanks a lot, you local thugs! Only a matter of time before they end up in prison.

And they wonder why they get no respect.

One incident blown completly out of proportion. We've taken in almost 2000 college students and over 3400 public school students and all anyone can talk about is some Houston vs. NO Thugfest at Jesse Jones? Of course there's going to be trouble. It seems to me, however, that all these new students seem to be getting along pretty well with the regulars and vice versa. It's interesting but not worth the hype KPRC put's on it-and everthing else it seems to consider real "news". [don't EVEN get me started on Ch. 2]

I still think this should be a non-story.

But it's a Ch 2 exclusive BIG STORY.

But the local ghetto rats deserve a few racial slurs today. There is no doubt in my mind who started this, and it's not the evacuees.

I agree that KPRC is making a mountain out of a mole-hill - but over 200 students involved?

What does race have to do with a bunch of idiots? I'd like to know MidtownCoog, what would be your racial slurs of choice?

I'd start by calling them a bunch of crazy wetbacks.

Cause if you watched the news, you could tell it's a bunch of crazy wetbacks.

Per KPRC's original report, they claimed that around 200 hundred students were involved. I'm sure it was as mentioned earlier however that only 20 or so were actually involved and that the other 180 or so were merely instigating.

The best was last night on KTRK 13. They interviewed a male student who claimed that the whole incident was an accident. He claimed that one Jones student had tossed the un-opened can of soda to another classmate. Somehow the New Orleans kids got in the way.

Hows that for perspective? :huh:

The New Orleans kids should have been split up into a variety of schools.. such as Lamar, Westside, Bellaire, Westbury, Madison, etc.

And if the whole thing started because of an accident...

Yeah, Jones is a crazy place.. but even so, our poor need to be compassionate towards the Louisiana poor. And vice versa.

The kids at my school are nice to the Louisiana transfer students.

>>When did it grow to 200? It was 25 yesterday. Was it not a big enough BIG STORY at 25 kids in a fight?

RedScare, I'm amazed that you do not know the answer to this!

The first is they did a recount. (I know you just luuuuv them recounts!)

The second reason is that they forgot to count all the volunteers that were attending with the students! (you know, helping them carry their books, cheat on tests, do their homework for them, etc...)

You seriously lack a sense of humor. Do you work for Airport security?

I don't recall sarcasm requiring anything to be factual. However I do have a cure for your condition.... Go rent Kentucky Fried Movie. It features something called comedy. Watch, notate, repeat.

Yeah, it does help to note the date and time of the post. If it's Friday night after 2:00 am, it's a good bet these posts are not meant to be serious dialogue. :lol:
