Wow am I glad this was Banal High instead of SHS...Hey Weizel, you're a real dick for reporting some of this stuff: "Look at that black [expletive]. She's so black you can't even see her."
What kind of crap is that to put in an article???? You're asking to cause unnecessary problems...the last thing Stratford needs is a racial conflict stirred up by your irresponsible reporting...suck an egg jack-off

Maybe Ms. Cornish will, stop hiding things from the polic so they can act. Maybe Ms. Cornish will stop ordering her staff and teachers to not cooperate with police. Ms. Cornish has been hiding things from the police and town and parents for years to save her job. Maybe we should get all the Bridgeport kids out of stratford schools.

What I would like to know is why didn't the school staff escort the 2 white girls out? The school should be held accountable for the actions it did not take to prevent the fight. As a well established white male, I am very ashamed and embarrassed by the actions of these 2 white girls.
My sympathy reaches out to the parent and daughter. This should never have occurred.

The police report is open for public record anyway, you moron. It's also better that people know what kinds of things are being said in this type of incident, that racial conflicts do in fact still exist in the Stratford schools -- and at Bunnell, as you said, not just Stratford High School.
You clearly don't know the first thing about good journalism. The reporter quoted the police report. Would you prefer the censorship of communist countries and those controlled by dictators? You're an un-American fool. Or you would clearly prefer that we didn't live in a free country where we have the right to know about these incidents. Again, you are a jerk.

I would guess they thought the girls would stop and that yanking them out would cause too much disruption. Unfortunately they were wrong...it can be a tough call inthat situation...Cornish is however an incompetent, lying boob. I was is Stratford before she came and she has thrown a real monkey wrench into the works...the teachers in Stratford hate her universally...

"... The girl who was taunted, however, threw the first punch after her mother, 34-year-old Shawon Mercer of Harriett Street, became embroiled in a verbal confrontation with the white students ... The two white students, whose names were not released because of their age, were charged with second-degree breach of peace ... Both were released to the custody of their mothers and are scheduled to appear Feb. 18 in Juvenile Court."

Where are the fathers of these three girls?

What does Bridgeport have to do with this?? Oh, because the girl was black, get off of the stupid junk. The problem is clear somebody should have prevented this from happening.All Black people do not live in Bridgeport.

Jeeze calling me a moron is a bit harsh, but since you don't work in one of the schools I guess you don't know some of the damage stuff like that can do or some of the hurt it can cause...also I don't know if you are familiar w/ some of the reporting of Weitzel...the man is a lunatic who has a real hard-on for Stratford schools. Now if someone called your mother a whore at a meeting, I'll bet you wouldn't want that in the papers even if it was true...it is a sensitivity issue...being sensitive to the people in a given community.

thanks dude...you are right...put every hateful, spiteful thing in the paper regardless of people's feelings...maybe they should have interviewed the White Wolves for comment...in fact if I go downtown and shout the N word 75 times, they should print it everytime just to drive the point home...but your commentary is very insightful nonetheless..

""34-year-old Shawon Mercer of Harriett Street"" Harriett St is in Bridgeport, the girl probably "lives" with her grandmother in Stratford, yea, right. I thought they hired Imbro to look into these cases?

Stratford huh. White wolves are a bunch of Fa%%%ots who jump people with weapons. Too scared to fight with fists. Would love to get one of them by the neck.

Yes, you clearly are a moron. Sorry, but you show how dumb you are with your stupid assumpions. How do you know I don't work in a school?
In fact, I DO work in the Statford school system, and as previous postings poined out Cornish is despised because she tries to cover these incidents up. All I'm saying is, don't blame the reporter for writing facts from the police report, as I know the story was reported just as it happened. So, in the future, don't ASSUME you know what you're talking about, because you have proven you don't have a clue. Go back and hide under a rock, coward. It's easy to hide behind an anonymous name and throw stones at the messenger.

So now we even have brawls and racial incidents during a talent show at Bunnell High School. What is this school system coming too? I guess that RYASAP report about the rising violence in Stratford among youth that school administrators, the Board of Education and students tried so hard to play down was right on the money. Why don't they all admit there is a real problem in the Stratford schools instead of trying to say, as they did at a recent forum, that its not a school problem.
I guess this one wasn't in one of the schools either, hugh? Just like the fight in the Stratford cafeteria wasn't in one of the schoools, right? Got anything to say Supt. Cornish, or school board chairs? I didn't think so.

Went to a hockey game yesterday, suddenly a talent show broke out.
Agree with mr.anderson, school staff dropped the ball in this case - never shoulda happened.

I think it's insane that anyone could STILL be as ignorant as the two white girls. That school may not be QUITE as diverse as SHS, but they still have some diversity. Seriously? In the society we live in today people are STILL of the same mind set as people way back in the 1800s?!
And has anyone else noticed how this reporter just HAPPENED to slip in the little paragraph at the bottom about SHS? As though he means to try to bring the attention off of Bunnell and onto SHS? Seriously, what relevance does the fight in November have to do with this? I could see if it were a brawl over race in that circumstance to show that racism is a problem, but it wasn't. It was over a girl.
Play fair Weizel! Bunnell students are the ones that messed up this time! SHS has nothing to do with this one. Leave us out of it.

Is that in the paper? It's not in the online article.
