How about i`ll give the facts! He didnt have a total of four credits, He is NOT MENTALLY CHALLENGED and if you where to meet him you would never think of him in this type of situation.I seen him everyday and was in one of his classes. Oh also he is not 19 he is 18! When you move from a different area the cirriculum is different. The area where you were before might have had a weaker cirriculum therefore you get held back a grade. Oh and Jerome is white! lol
Grow up! There is no excuse for attacking a police officer or teacher. You aparently have no facts b/c what you just stated contains no facts regarding the case. This kid is a sh*thead and needs to stay locked up for a long time! With your attitude you will be following right in his footsteps. It is also true that the NY and Allentown scum have been ruining our suburban schools. When I graduated this type of behavior was never heard of. I went back to my school recently and I couldn't believe the trash and low-life scum walking the halls. Thanks to NY and Allentown our once great schools are going to he*l!

I believe the latest incidents at your subarban school, i.e. underage drinking in Emmaus and Porno at Parkland had nothing to do with Allentown students moving into your schools. This is so typical of subarban parents, blame the city schools because you are too blind to see that your own children could do something bad. How about all the thousands of homes being built in your area with triple the kids each year going to your schools.

HAH -- Jerome at 19 is in 11th grade, and he's still ahead of his home boys, Tyrone and Germaine, who are still stuck in 9th grade and also 19. Jerome is the success story.

WHY DON'T WE HEAR ABOUT THEM!! Don't you read the paper: emmaus 10 for underage drinking, parkland, porn, steaking, drugs on bus, Allentown kids with guns etc, etc... YES it is happening in other schools why do you think we have to have police, metal detectors, cameras at schools. The younger generation has no respect for others or even themselves. Its a thrill to them to get their name in the paper and the punishment is to soft. And of course the parents think their child can do no wrong.
OK, calm down. I was talking about the fighting! I made no reference to the porn, guns, and stuff like that. I was trying to make a point that kids have been fighting with teachers and "security" in schools for decades. It does not excuse it, but it happens. When I went to WHS there were fights all the time, and none of them made the MCall. Sad reality is that there will always be fights in school. And you are right respect for authority needs to start at home, no question! Don't think that will ever come full circle!!

I'd have to agree with alot of the Whitehall grads comments! I, also a graduate of WHS has to agree that Whitehall is not the same place it was back when I was in school. I always wanted my kids to graduate from Whitehall, as I did. Things have changed so much, I'm thinking twice about it. We had great teachers back then....it's a shame to think they have to deal with all this crap from these young "thug" punk kids!

Typical uneducated punk attitude. How can you compare assaulting a police officer or teacher to other mistakes kids make? Your mindset is widespread and is part of the reason we see it so often. Today's youth are far more violent than the youth of my days. Why is that?

I went to a local suburban school. Fights were rare but they never involved teachers or police. In fact, I can't remember the police ever being called to the school.

I graduated from Whitehall as well and will tell you this. The majority of kids that go to Whitehall today are the same kids "we" went to school with back in the 90's. There are some kids that make it seem like the school is out of control. If your kid does well academically, he will never see any of those kids in his class. Trust me, I see good ones everyday.
