FORT MYERS, FLA. - A sixteen year-old Florida student was suspended this week after disarming a gunmen on a school bus and saving fellow students.

It was against school rules.

A Florida high school student wrestled a loaded gun away from another teen on the bus ride home this week and was slapped with a suspension in return.

The 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Fla. reporters there was "no doubt" he saved a life after grappling for the loaded .22 caliber revolver being aimed point-blank at another student on Tuesday.

"I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there," said the suspended student, who was not identified because of safety concerns. "Not taking no pity."

The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.

Authorities confirmed the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified as Quadryle Davis, was "pointing the gun directly" at the other student and "threatening to shoot him."

That's when, the teen told said, he and two others tackled Davis and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.

"How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?" he asked.

The school's referral slip said he was given an "emergency suspension" for being involved in an "incident" with a weapon.

This is a perfect example of how messed up the world is and the course we are heading on. Some how things have gotten turned all around the last few years and not towards the good way!!! GEEZZ!!! Somebody should suspend the administration!!!

If the student had not done anything we would have a dead student on a school bus.
Is this what the superintendent wanted???

Really!!! You have got to kidding me.

I'd like to think the suspension is like when an officer is involved in a shooting. For that there is a mandatory 3 days doesn't mean anyone did wrong just time alotted for investigation and rest. But if it is other wise then it is completely B.S. for these kids to be suspended for doing something that truthfully the majority of some adults wouldn't think about.

How stupid oh ya let's just punish the student for intervening and hello a student would problem be dead if he had not get a grip people

School Rules:
If there is an armed person about to shoot a fellow student, you MUST allow that person to shoot and kill the victim, then not do anything as they kill you and everyone else on the bus, or else you will be expelled.
