Ex-student arrested for threatening South Oldham High principal

This from C-J:
A former South Oldham High School student has been charged with making threatening phone calls to principal Dorenda Neihof over the summer, Oldham County Police said.

Samuel Harper, 19, left four messages at the school between July 11 and July 15 threatening Neihof's life, Detective James Brown said. He said Harper also made threatening phone calls to Neihof in February 2008.

Harper was arrested July 16 and charged with four counts of terroristic threatening in the second degree and four counts of harassing communications, Brown said. He also was charged with second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief for breaking into and damaging a home in the Orchard Grass area, Brown said....

Only when the schools adopt a zero tolerance policy toward these dangerous kids, will all of us be safe.

I'll never forget how my former principal at Tates Creek Middle tried to convince an art teacher who was assaulted by a student not to press charges.

The only way to help such dangerous students is to remove them from areas where they can hurt others.

Teachers really do provoke students these days...I think the entire education system in Kentucky needs an overhaul. In Illinois, we have laws to review all principals on a bi-weekly basis. I simply do not understand why some teachers generate such's time to look at your attitude.
