Gun Violence Protests Result in Several High School Students Being Arrested

by ECT

Stockton Police reported Friday that several student-led protests against gun violence at local high schools resulted in acts of violence against the community and officers.

According to police, during one protest, over a couple of hundred students walked off campus. While many of these students were demonstrating peacefully against gun violence, several students took this opportunity to commit acts of violence against our community members and officers.

Rocks were thrown by these students which caused damage to uninvolved vehicles and Stockton Police vehicles.

During one incident, as a Stockton Police Officer was patrolling the area of a high school which was on lockdown, the officer saw several students leaving campus by jumping a fence. The officer went to contact the students when the students fought with the officer and took his baton.

A citizen saw what was happening and came to the officer’s aid until more officers arrived. The following students were arrested:

  • Verania Cervantes, 18, for battery on an officer and resisting arrest. She was booked into the S.J. County Jail.
  • A 15 year old male for battery on an officer, taking an officer’s baton, and resisting arrest;
  • A 14 year old male for battery on an officer and resisting arrest;
  • A 17 year old female for battery on an officer and resisting arrest; and
  • A 16 year old female for battery on an officer and resisting arrest.

All the juveniles were cited to their parents.

Stockton Police Department’s Public Information Officer Joe Silva said, “We do support the freedom to protest peacefully and freedom of speech. While the majority of the students were peaceful today, we don’t condone the violence which was committed by a small handful of students. It’s unacceptable to batter a police officer and especially to take an officer’s baton.”

Students protesting violence by being violent. But the media said that doesnt happen…..This must be fake news.

Stan Feb 24, 2018 - 12:57 am

Yeah, these are the kids we should be making an example of. Maybe this will wake up the lefty libs and remind them why KIDS don’t vote and kids don’t yet have a political say.

Let’s not forget, these are the tide pod chomping generation.

Legal voting age should be raised not lowered Feb 24, 2018 - 4:02 am

So what about the script that cnn gave the student to read on air?? Hmm they dont talk about that much. Sad the dems are using kids to push their agenda. Banning guns wont fix the problem itll just be another law that is broken. Other areas need to be addressed like mental health and law enforcement taking threats seriously. Wait what happened to daca?? Oh thats right something new came up they can jump on

We all need to join the NRA. Especially with the last round of BS (enterprise rental cars, dropping their support).

Kyle Feb 25, 2018 - 9:02 am

They don’t need enterprise when they buy politicians buy the dozen, genius.

Rscalzo Feb 26, 2018 - 11:56 am

What a moron. The NRA donated about one million to all levels of politicians. How much did the unions donate to keep their benefits flowing?

Captain Feb 25, 2018 - 9:42 am

Yea because we shop at enterprise so much idiot?

elizabeth Feb 25, 2018 - 1:55 pm

I am compiling a list of those businesses who are blasting the NRA ……. and I do use Enterprise as needed, but that has come to an end. I am so glad that a large number of my relatives just joined the NRA and the GOA ……. and I’m been a life member of the NRA for many years!

Captain Feb 24, 2018 - 9:15 pm

Yea I hope they continue to fu*k shit up. The only way of actual change is to demand change!

EBJ Feb 25, 2018 - 1:58 pm

Hey Captain! You’re off your meds again! Get back on them and get some psychiatric help! Or, put down that bottle already!

Stan Feb 25, 2018 - 3:24 pm

Hey Captain (not so Obvious),

OBVIOUSLY enough people do “shop” or as smarter people like to say, “rent” from Enterprise That’s how they have stayed in business up to this point. It doesn’t take a genius to see that their PR just took a major hit. I can only surmise from your postings that this level of commen sense is lost on you.

A good bet is they are going to take somewhat of a financial hit and loss of a percentage of their customer base.

Dawn Feb 25, 2018 - 4:16 pm

More and more people have signed up for the NRA since the shooting in Florida! The reason we have so few shootings is because of the message the NRA puts out. Go to their website and read their message statement. I have been a member for 5 years and my many relatives have as well. I will boycott ANY business which, in their ignorance, is badmouthing this organization.

Fred Wilks Feb 25, 2018 - 11:51 pm

No need to boycott Dawn, the NRA buys more politicians than Exxon. It’s all a sham and it’s sad that you’re a pawn in their game.

Rscalzo Feb 26, 2018 - 12:01 pm

Donated one million to all political levels.

Exxon donated 1.5 million.

Teachers unions donations to Democrats…..Political contributions hit a high in 2016, where donations hit $33.2 million. Of the money that went to politicians directly, 93 percent went to Democrats.

Any wonder attempt a to hold them accou table for a failing system go nowhere

Girly Feb 26, 2018 - 8:10 pm

Hey Fred, why don’t you STFU! That’s right, since you don’t seem to care about groups that support the 2nd amendment and you “want to fight fire with fire” how do you feel about being told to give up your 1st amendment right? So shut your yapper.

Didn’t like having your right infringed on?

Didn’t think so.

Lola Saavedra Feb 25, 2018 - 4:36 pm

The NRA was formed to make gun use SAFER. When they spread across the US, gun related deaths dropped considerably. It is the intent of people, not the guns that kill. I am a life member of the NRA!

Maybe we should also cars, knifes, forks, screw drivers, hatchets, scissors, axes, utility knives, hedge trimmers, glass bottles,cue balls and bats ….. all can be used as weapons.

Fred Wilks Feb 25, 2018 - 11:51 pm

2nd amendment zombies hold onto the rhetoric that one day they may have to open fire on our military in the face of a tyrant. Yet, that’ll never happen, and we just keep overlooking the massive death toll from daily assault rifle usage. But, let’s fight fire with fire right? Literally.

Rscalzo Feb 26, 2018 - 12:08 pm

Dead toll from ALL long guns ..460 per year according to the UCR…Fatalities due to impaired driving…10,245. Where’s the outrage and changes to motor vehicle use. 209 under the age of 14.

Overdose drug deaths….53,000. They should make drugs illegial.

Fred Wilks Feb 26, 2018 - 9:08 pm

Ok keep circle jerking the NRA, yet why are guns banned from their conventions? Why are they banned from the White House? Republican national convention? What’s with the gun fetish that I don’t understand?

Fred Wilks Feb 26, 2018 - 9:10 pm

And your stats are pretty sad compared with the rest of the world whose numbers are obviously lower. With all the war our country has caused, I don’t understand why people are obsessed with guns so much.

Girly Feb 26, 2018 - 5:48 pm

Proud NRA member and 2nd amendment supporter. If you think the Bill of Rights and the amendments are a joke Fred Wilks, then you are the zombie. It’s not rhetoric, its a RIGHT. If you don’t like it then please feel free to leave. That would be your right and none of us will hold you back.

What the hell is wrong with people. If you don’t understand our founding documents and governance system, then you probably shouldn’t be trying to opine against those of us that do. Sheeeeeeeesh!

Fred Wilks Feb 26, 2018 - 6:20 pm

Girly, please look up what “amendment” even means. It means they had to change the original documents because despite what you think, they didn’t understand the 2018 world in 1787.

Wow everyone. Feb 26, 2018 - 10:47 pm

I hate when people talk about cars being just as bad as guns. Or cue balls, really? One doesn’t equal the other. It’s like comparing apples to rocks. I think people are outraged over impaired driving and drug related deaths.

I guess I can see someone’s adoration for the NRA and guns and you can sit back and tell me that it’s the person that kills not the guns. It’s all crap. Of course someone has to pull a trigger to kill someone with a gun. That’s how they work. I don’t think anyone is saying any different. In fact I think it’s the exact point of most people.

I don’t pretend to know what the answer is but it isn’t what we’ve got going right now. What we have right now isn’t working and something needs to change. People are getting tired of these mass shootings. I guess I just don’t understand why someone would want to own an automatic weapon…just so you can say you do? Just because you can? Sometimes just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

I’m sure this will be met with disdain. We all are so easily outraged these days and I think that’s part of the problem. If you don’t buy into my staunch position well then eff you you’re an idiot and by the way get out of the country if you don’t like it!! It seems like a horrible way to live. And no, I’m not a lefty lib. I’m just human.

Stan Feb 27, 2018 - 8:41 am

Fred, The Amendments were additions, not corrections. Perhaps it is you that needs to comprehend what Amendments meant in this most important milestone in the founding of our Country. The Founding Fathers understood the framing of our Government and system that governs us. They understood that no mater how times would change, the fundamentals should stay the same. What that means is that our Bill of Rights, Delaration of Independence and the US Constitution were NOT working documents, nor subject to your individual interpretation. They understood that weapons of war would continue to evolve which is why there is such specific language in the 2nd ammendment. You should read it sometime.

Actually they understood Government very well, regardless of where and when.

American Feb 27, 2018 - 11:44 am

Guns are here to stay forever. If outlawed only outlaws will have them. The great part of responsible gun owners is that it is highly unlikely we will have a war or invasion on US soil. This is because every good American citizen with a gun would not allow it. As far as Wackos. If not a gun it would be a knife, a bomb, chemicals, or who knows what. The problem is mental health and public indicators a person displays that are ignored. Don’t blame guns, it’s your government who failed, and even that said there will be those who slipped through the cracks. We used to have facilities to help troubled people. Maybe bring those back.
