Police: 12-Year-Old Brings Gun to Charter School of Boynton Beach; Belligerent Teacher Arrested

The Charter School of Boynton Beach was locked down this morning after a 12-year-old student was arrested on weapons charges for allegedly bringing a gun to school. He said he found a gun and "brought it to school to scare another student who he was having a disagreement with," according to Boynton Beach Police.

But the student wasn't the only one arrested -- a teacher was arrested for allegedly fighting with the school principal and later police when his students weren't allowed to go to the bathroom during the lockdown.

Police say 55-year-old Mark Kleiman, of Cooper City, violated the lockdown procedure when he unlocked and opened his classroom door and "refused to listen to the Headmaster when he was explaining that the classroom needed to remain secure," according to the arrest report.

Kleiman said students needed to use the bathroom; the principal said too bad, according to the report. Kleiman got the same response when he asked a police supervisor if students could go to the bathroom.

"Again Kleiman refused to comply and was asked by the Headmaster to step out of the classroom where he was replaced by another member of the faculty who secured the classroom," wrote Boynton Beach Sgt. Hap Crowell.

Kleiman continued to make a scene and was warned three times that he would be arrested if he didn't quit it, according to police. But he didn't quit it, and now he's in Palm Beach County Jail charged with obstructing a law enforcement officer.

There is almost certainly more to the story than this; the school houses students in kindergarten through eighth grade; it's not clear how old Kleiman's students were or why it was so vital some of them get to the bathroom. More, probably, to come.

Anger issues much? Heck, I'm 13 and you don't see me saying things like, "SHUT THE FUCK UP CAUSE I GO TO THE SCHOOL AND IF YOU DNT KNOW NUTHING SHUT THE FUCK UP." You're just immature. Besides, bringing a gun to school is illegal because they don't know for sure that he won't use it.

police report says 9:48am  schools starts at what?  8:30? 

when was the normal break for students? 

I do agree that the whole lock down is over kill, just like road cops blocking off 3 lanes when the accident is on the right lane, is overkill.   but they get to make the rules...

How long was this lock down, that children needed to hold off, going to the bathroom?Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.I supose, this child will be treated as an adult, and put in prison for life, that is if they can not execute him. This world has gone crazy. Dear Lord please come, we need a real Judge.One with Justice and Mercy.

Cops love to put the world on hold for their own convenience or maybe just because they can. Give a medal to the teacher. What would Officer Britto have done?

It is very trendy to lock down a school any time the educrats get their panties in a twist.  It is also useless, stupid and protects nobody from anything.  A pointless disruption of lives and a violation of the student's liberty.  Also it is against the law to prevent people from going about their business just because some educrat get scared.   Children are people too.
