My minor mentally challanged son takes GED classes at Phillips County Community College. Today during break time he was talking to two students right outside the building(Raymond Stevens and his brother live in projects 107 Baker Street in West Helena)Raymond asked my son if he could use his phone to call his mom. The two boys took the the iphone 4gs and ran toward the hill. My son, like a idiot chased them onl...y to loose them around Blundells trailer park. I went to the college and asked the teacher for the boys names, keep in mind the boys are over 18, and the teacher tells me it is confidential and she can't tell me their names. I called for HWH police department to come. In the mean time college security comes and asked me for my name and information about me like I had done something wrong. Cyrus Vance then came in and I proceded to tell him what happened when he cut me off and said "your son chased the boys and ended up off campus and because he left campus on break he is expelled for good". He also said that if my son let the boy use the phone that it "was not stealing". My son asked Mr. Vance, "If I ask to use your phone and take off running, I can just keep it? you would not say I stole it?"Mr. Vance replied "I am not stupid enough to let anyone use my phone".So now is he calling my kid stupid?Security then said that I could not talk to the HWH police on campus that I had to leave and take my kid since he had left campus and could no longer be a student. I had to go to the police department where I had to fill out a police report. Although I then knew the boys names and I have a tracking device on the phone and could locate it to 107 Baker Street, nothing can be done about it until the judge says so. By then the phone will be long gone.Where is justice?

Constitutional Justice is surely not in the City Of Helena-West Helena. The only justice here is the justice that you create for yourself... This sounds like something from the Mississippi Burning or A Time to kill... No justice lives here! Only in Hell-town would this be allowed to happen, especially to a minor child.

lesson learned.
Karma never sleeps
and those walmart go phones get great signal, and less likely to get stole.

As far as being expelled for " leaving campus" I would contact an official at the university of arkansas and see what could be done, also find someone at the state department of education to write to.

Be sure since the other 2 boys left campus also that they are expelled as well. If not demand so. And sue the person in charge of making that decision. Don't sue the school, no since others education should be affected, but definitely sue the person.
