Get MS-13 out of our schools

This past week saw a horrific MS-13 gang knife attack against a 16-year-old Huntington High School student at the Burger King on New York Avenue in Huntington.  The student was eating after class with several classmates when they noticed three gang members glaring at them.  When they tried to leave, the gang attacked, stabbing the 16 year old in the back. The police and the high school need to protect our children. We need a “zero tolerance” policy and to expel and – if deport – anyone involved with MS-13.  The high school and the police have a lot of explaining to do.

This past week saw a horrific MS-13 gang knife attack against a 16-year-old Huntington High School student at the Burger King on New York Avenue in Huntington.  The student was eating after class with several classmates when they noticed three gang members glaring at them.  When they tried to leave, the gang attacked, stabbing the 16 year old in the back.  He lived and is expected to recover.

Police arrested the three, and found blood-covered knives hidden one of the attacker’s clothes.  Worse was that the attackers were known MS-13 gang members; were also students at Huntington High School; and were not kids, but adult men – the two oldest are 19 and 20.  All three attackers are illegal aliens – and so-called “dreamers.”

Just the day before the stabbing, a group of “community leaders” met with the County Police to protest the police assisting ICE in deporting another MS-13 Huntington High School student, three months ago.  The school officer who reported that student was later “transferred” to another school.

When kids are being menaced and stabbed – there can be no debate.  We need a “zero tolerance” policy towards MS-13.  If high school students organized a chapter of the Nazi Party or the KKK, you can bet school administrators would jump into action.  MS-13 is worse.  They have murdered scores of children – often by hacking them to death with machetes.  They target kids to join the gang or die.  Joining often stabbing another person as an initiation rite.

For too long corrupt Suffolk officials, like former Police Chief James Burke (now a convicted criminal felon) or District Attorney Tom Spota (now under federal felony indictment) and County Executive Steve Bellone (now running for re-election !) were happy to look the other way while MS-13 spread through Suffolk’s Central American communities.

The police and the high school need to protect our children.  Can you imagine sending your 14-year old freshman to a school with adult men 20-year old gang members ?  Even after the school identifies the adult men as members of a murder gang ?  Something is seriously broken here.  We need a “zero tolerance” policy and to expel and – if illegal deport – anyone involved with MS-13.  The high school and the police have a lot of explaining to do.
