According to an inside source, school police officers working at Washington and Pike Township Schools were put on high alert today for potential gang violence after the IMPD reportedly issued a warning that threats were made by gang members from North Central High School against gang members who are associated with the Pike Township high school.Vice continues on detailing the security problems in the Washington Township Schools that have gone on without being addressed by the administration.
This comes after school officials reportedly called on school police officers today to remove an alleged gang member from a Washington Township School.
Nerves have been on edge since threats of gang violence erupted at Northview Middle School a few weeks ago in an ongoing Black vs. Hispanic scenario.
According to a knowledgeable source, two students were recently arrested for bringing knives to the middle school. The student perpetrators were allegedly recruited by members of the notorious Latin King Gang and given the assignment to stab another student at Northview Middle School. Rumors have been circulating that the Northview Middle School incident may be related to an Indianapolis gang-murder investigation.
Unfortunately the Washington Township administration has a reputation of being more concerned about its image than the welfare of the students. Pike has similiar problem - an administration out of touch with teachers, students and the community. The adminstrations of both school districts have a far too cozy relationship with their respective school board members. School boards should be a check on school administration, not a rubber stamp for whatever school leaders want to do.
