PERRY HALL - According to Baltimore County Public Schools, around 1:50 p.m. on Thursday, Perry Hall High School went into lockdown as police responded to an assault in the area behind the school.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that police chased suspects into the woods near the school and that helicopter and k9 units were involved.
Police said a student was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, and this incident remains under investigation.

The protestors were reacting to a recent string of violence at area schools, including a student wielding a baseball bat to defend herself from bullies on September 28th.

Quit blaming the schools. The school and government are not the parents. Poor parenting leads to most of this. Not enforcing rules leads to most of this. Soft on crime leads to this behavior. Where is the deterrent?
