Man arrested for allegedly threatening THS principal

December 6, 2011

A 51-year-old rural Tonganoxie man was arrested Monday following an incident in which he allegedly threatened Tonganoxie High School Principal Jamie Carlisle at the school.

The incident happened about 10 a.m. Monday, according to Leavenworth County sheriff’s reports.

A school resource officer with the sheriff’s office arrested the man, who had come to the school to address issues of bullying against his daughter, reports said.

The man allegedly kicked open the door to Carlisle’s office and when Carlisle indicated he was going to contact the authorities, the man said “I may not take care of it here but by God I will take care of it somewhere,” the report said.

The man was arrested for criminal threats to the principal and taken to Leavenworth County Jail. At the time of the arrest, he also was arrested on an outstanding warrant for contempt of court.

LOL.... Bullying still going on. What a suprise.

Yes, it goes on and on. They say they "have a strict policy against bullying" but it's just a piece of paper. It does no good to have a policy if you are not going to inforce it. Bullying goes on and even when they know about it, nothing is done to the bullies. What a shame.

I understand this fathers frustrations. Parents are feeling more and more up against a wall when their complaints are going unnoticed. They are tired of not being heard, or being avoided . This policy needs yo be strictly enforced. I am afraid some good students will be going elsewhere for their education, as I have been told some already have.

At least 3 kids that I know of have left for this reason. Tongie's loss. Too bad.
