Big Man on Campus

A female student at Elizabeth Andrews High School in Stone Mountain, Ga., said a fellow student “playfully” pointed a gun at her on campus. DeKalb County School Police searched the other student’s car and sure enough, found a gun. Mustapha Dukereh, 21, was arrested and charged with possession of a gun on school grounds, a felony. Dukereh’s father was furious to learn his son had a gun, let alone at school. “I’m more than upset, because that’s not my lifestyle,” the unnamed man said. “I don’t raise my kids to be that.” He said he would let his son sit in jail “to teach him a lesson.” (RC/WSB Atlanta) ...He’s 21 and still in high school? Somehow, I doubt that lesson is going to take.
