The New York Daily News breathlessly reported today that a 14-year-old Harlem teen from a C-rated high school* had pepper sprayed eight other students.

The youngsters “who inhaled the noxious chemicals were rushed from the W. 129th St. school to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital.”

 

No word yet on whether or not these high schoolers were protesting something, in which case the 14-year-old’s actions would be totally justified.

*Best known for having a very Notes on a Scandal -esque incident with its principal last year.
