girls knife fighting in Maywood

Jeremy of Forest Park, a Proviso East grad, asked me to post the following Proviso Herald (David Pollard) story:
A 15 year-old female Proviso East High School student is at Loyola University Medical recovering from stab wounds that resulted from a fight last week, according to Maywood police.

Elizabeth Nellums, 17, of 1003 S. 17th Ave., Maywood, was charged Jan. 16 with attempted murder, aggravated battery great bodily harm, aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon and aggravated battery on a public way. She allegedly stabbed a 15-year-old Proviso East classmate with a knife during a fight in the area of Ninth Avenue and Madison Street.

  • Ms/ Coffee says: Well, it certainly seems like the schools are out of control...a fight after a game, a teacher beat on in the West washroom and now a girl knifed. Should the police have to clean up the schools? It seems to me that the schools should start coming down hard on the offenders. Would I want to be a teacher in 209? Hell no!

  • The better do something over there before someone gets killed, or there's a shooting. it's only a matter of time.

    There have always been discipline problems at the Proviso schools, but it seems to have gotten worse over the last year or so. It's time for the district to start cracking down, and get rid of these troublemakers.

  • No child left behind! Yea right, what a joke! At what cost? What about the other 99 percent they drag down with them?. Let them fall through the cracks where they belong. They are merely on the fast track to a revolving door in and out of the penal institution.
