If you've relocated to Pascagoula, you should feel much safer knowing that
your kids are safe from security personnel carrying guns. Never mind that
the crooks are carrying knives.
ZERO TOLERANCE IN REAL LIFE, MISSISSIPPI EDITION: Security guard and bail
bondsman George Stevenson, 33, saw an apparent burglar at an apartment
complex in Pascagoula, Miss., and gave chase -- into a nearby
elementary school. Stevenson chased the suspect through the school's
halls and, when he saw a school security guard, asked her to call
police. The school did call police -- demanding they arrest Stevenson
because he was carrying a licensed gun. Stevenson was charged with
possession of a firearm at a school, a felony, and jailed without bond.
If he is convicted he will lose his licenses, killing his career. The
alleged burglar, Steven McCuller, 20, was charged with possession of a
knife at a school, a misdemeanor, and was released despite already
being out on bond for a previous aggravated assault charge. Within days
he was arrested again at the scene of yet another burglary. (Pascagoula
Mississippi Press) ...School officials are investigating reports that
the police officers who responded to make the arrests were also armed.
