Police say teen arrested for taking gun, knife into South Salem High School – Salem Reporter:

A 17-year-old boy with a loaded gun and a knife fled South Salem High School on Wednesday as police arrived and was subsequently arrested, according to Salem police and school officials.

The teen, who was not identified by authorities because of juvenile status, has been accused of two counts of possession of a weapon in a public building, illegal possession of a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.

For all the complaints about schools being a school-to-prison pipeline, the one thing that’s left unacknowledged is that some kids, like some adults, belong in jail.
