Indianapolis School Expels Gay Student When He Pulls Stun Gun On Bullies
Arsenal Tech High School expelled 17-year-old Darnell Young for bringing a stun gun to school. His mother gave it to him to protect him from students who were bullying him.
After months of what Young calls relentless taunting and physical violence, his mom, Chelisa Grimes, gave him the stun gun for self-defense, and to reverse Young’s sharp slide in grades and degrading emotional health. On April 16, surrounded by six antagonists, Young fired the gun in the air, prompting police to arrest him and his school to eventually expel him for a year.
