What the hell? Is this what we've come to, really? This woman obviously has a void to fill in her clearly empty, insignificant life. Going after a Middle School Student? ::rolls eyes::

DECEMBER 22--A 13-year-old boy was arrested Friday for using a permanent marker while in class at his Oklahoma City middle school, a violation of an obscure city ordinance.

According to an Oklahoma City Police Department report, the boy was spotted “in possession of a permanent marker” by Roosevelt Middle School teacher DeLynn Woodside. The 50-year-old educator told cop Miguel Campos that the student was “writing on a piece of paper, which caused it to bleed over onto the desk.”

Woodside, pictured at right, reported that the child, whose name was redacted by police from the report, attempted to hide the marker when she asked him for it. Strangely, Woodside’s Facebook page reveals that her “likes and interests” include the official “Sharpie Permanent Markers” page on Facebook.

Campos reported that he allowed Woodside, a seventh grade math teacher, to “sign a citation” against the boy, who was then transported to the Community Intervention Center, a juvenile holding facility. A police sergeant subsequently “booked the marker into the property room.”

A police spokesman referred to the student’s bust as a “citizen’s arrest” effectuated by Woodside.

The marker ban--which apparently is aimed at curbing graffiti--stems from a city ordinance making it illegal to possess spray paint or a permanent marker on private property (without the owner’s permission). (2 pages)

The difference between you and the rest of the world Aquarian, is you see the boy as a poor victim. To those who find out the truth, he probably is writing on every bathroom wall in the school. Kids know the school rules and they know the difference, when they go buy a marker. They know damn well any janitor will be able to clean the non-permanat kinds off, but the permanant marker stays. You have no question why the kid had a permanant marker??? I'm a little tired of the millions of dollars spent on grafitti defacing everything from block walls to every bathroom stall in the schools.

That's pretty irrelevant considering that was not the case here. The student was not using the marker for graffiti. The student was not using the marker in any damaging way. In fact, most students that age love permanent markers because of the way they write. Either way, there is no excuse to send him to juvenile detention for this. Nothing in the article mentions that the student was a participant in graffiti. I don't care if it was against city ordinance or not, having a 13 year old arrested for having a marker, which he was using on paper for school, is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard

Aquarian, I totally agree with you. This is an outrage. If I were his mother, I'd be raising holy hell. I'd sue the school, the city and the teacher personally for the trauma of the arrest and imprisonment.

stems from a city ordinance making it illegal to possess spray paint or a permanent marker on private property

A public school is not "private property". The story doesn't say if this is a private school or a public school. If it is a public school then the city ordinance doesn't apply. Here we go, it's a public school: http://www.publicschoolreview.com/schoo ... l_id/66329

Now, these pens are sold in stores around the city, but they're not "allowed" to be brought onto private property. That is so stupid, it reminds me of the smoking bans. The kid brings one to school, uses it on paper, and it bleeds onto the desk. The punishment should be detention and he should have to clean it off his desk with finger nail polish remover. Anyone who has accidentally written on a white board with a permanent marker knows that acetone takes it off. But, I guess Greeney isn't aware of this fact. Funny that.

When I was younger, I loved those little markers and I didn't really know why other than I found them fascinatingly entertaining to write with. It probably had to do with the fact that there are colors of them akin to crayons. Let's face it. The kid didn't have a bomb, a taser, a gun, or even a kitchen knife, hell, not even a butter knife. Stupid. Stupid. STUPID ❗

When I first saw the thread I thought maybe he got into trouble for sniffing a marker and trying to get high off it or something.

I agree. It is an outrage. My jaw dropped. I can see MAYBE what Nesaie said but even that is pushing it unless the kid already had a reputation for being unruly or this was a repeat offense.

Let it be known that December 23, 2010 @ approximately 6:00-ish eastern time, Frrostedman has agreed with Aquarian.

That is all Laugh

I retract a part of what I said to be honest. If this is in fact, a truly innocent possession of the wrong kind of marker, it was outrageous, but kids are supose to know the school rules. That said, I never thought about the getting high part, so thats a consideration. also the fact grafiti is so much a part of todays culture, thats why we have strict rules about minors buying spray paint, and things like permanant markers. Seriously it costs insurance companies and the taxpayers probably hundreds of millions everyyear nationwide for grafiti cleanup. It does not come off block walls without showing. How would you like your $10,000 block wall marked and sprayed up? At the most, if the marker was a school rule, sending him to the boys VP is this level, like a dress code violation. Maybe an hour of detention, but arrest if its innocent was too far.

It truly is the "end of the world as we know it". Laugh

Greeney, there is a type of paint that repels graffiti. It's a little more expensive, but spray paint just washes off. Contractors tend to not tell people about it, because they don't have a reason to come back out and repaint.

This kid wasn't accused of sniffing the pen, he was accused of using it to write on paper and the ink bled onto the desktop. That is the accusation. He was also on public property. The city ordinance doesn't cover public property, only private property. I remember when I was a kid there were markers that encouraged kids to sniff them. They came in different "flavors", purple was grape, red was cherry, and so on. I wonder what chemicals were in those and what effect they had on children.

If this was merely school rules, the teacher could have easily confiscated the pen and forced him to clean up the mess. She could have done it in class, to prove a point to others, or after school to teach him. There was no need to involve tax funded cops and to incarcerate him in tax payer juvenile detention. How much did it cost the tax payers for the cops involved, his time in juvenile? Or, could she have actually saved tax money by acting as an adult? She could have taken care of the situation. Instead, she cost the tax payers way more. If his parents have any sense, they'll cost the tax payers a lot more money just to prove a point through civil court.

By the way, I like where the article talks about the obese teacher's face book page. Laugh Laugh Laugh One of her "friends" is sharpie markers. Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh 😎

And Greeney, if you're recanting you're earlier words, I applaud you. It takes a strong man to admit he was mistaken. 😉
