Roni Jamison has two daughers and a son enrolled at Scott High School. One of her daughters was at Friday night's game when a fight broke out between two students. "From the story my daughter told me she felt the officers stepped over the line by macing because it was a fight between two freshman girls that could've been broken up," Ms. Jamison said. After police restored order the game resumed. The two students involved in the fight were arrested and could be facing disciplinary action at Scott.
Students and parents have expressed their displeasure at the negative publicity Friday night's incident has generated. On Tuesday afternoon Scott High School students who are members of the Student African-American Brotherhod and the Young Women of Excellence will make a presentation to the public about some of the positive programs and activities going on at Scott.
