Student Stabbed At Eastern Kentucky High School

A southeastern Kentucky high school student was rushed to the hospital Tuesday morning after being stabbed at school.

The ninth grade student was reportedly stabbed twice at Lynn Camp High School in Corbin after getting into an argument with another student in the hallway.

The principal says the student was stabbed with a pocketknife. He says the teen's injuries are not life threatening.

Knox County sheriff's officials were called to the school and did arrest one student. The names of the students are not being released because of their ages.

    To my knowledge the 2 juevenille's concerning the blow up at Owsley County will not be back in the Owsley County Public School System.Yes I agree that every parent should take there students out of the Owsley County School System until it is re-administrated with someone that beleives in equal punishment no matter who the parents are because to my knowledge there were more involved one of there parents works at the school. I think it's just all a big blow up by the school wanting some publicity because they have never went this far with any other similar or worst cases ever before.

    In response to Chuck from Barbourville.For your information there is no metal detectors at Lynn Camp and there is none at Barbourville,Corbin,North or South.You need to get your facts straight before you voice your opinion. This is for Amy at Barbourville.I'm wondering where you got your facts at? The school staff and administration where on duty and done a wonderful job stopping this incident before it got worst. If you think you can hold hands and walk 600 students to class with a staff of 50,your not living in a real world.My hat goes off to Principal Larry Mills[former principal at Barbourville]and Assistant Principal Earl Gregory. They have done a fine job with the discipline at Lynn Camp and have been sending the trouble students that live outside the district back to the schools they belong. As for James who said this was "typical Lynn Camp redstuff", thanks for showing all the viewers that there are ignorant people from all school.

    There is no statewide ban on spanking in schools. Apparently the decision to allow or not allow corporal punishment is left to the site based council for each district. Having recently enrolled a child in school, her father signed a form giving the school permission to use corporal punishment as they may see fit.

    There will be more and more of this. The 2 girls from our local High School that have over 100 counts against them are already out of the detention center. They are on house arrest for 30 days then they will be back to school. Thats just great isnt it? I think all the parents should keep their kids home and see how the administration likes that.

    Rsegardless of where the school is located we could hear of this happening anytime. When your child leaves for school you don't know if you will see them alive again or not. We must remember that schools are a reflection of our society. What do we hear on the news everyday: someone was shot, drug arrest, child molestation, on and on. I think too many children aren't taught right from wrong, they aren't taken to church, they see fighting and drugs at home, and this has to impact their lives. Some adults aren't very good role models.

    An incident like this has nothing to do with being redneck. All schools have the so called rednecks. All schools have kids in them that will stab or shoot anyone. If you look at the history of crimes being committed by kids, you will find it escalated when the laws of child abuse were introduced. The laws make it difficult to discipline children these days. I don't want to hurt the experts feelings but time out dosen't work. Kids crave punishment, it's a form of attention they need. I have spanked or whipped my children before, and they will always return apologizing and tell me how much they love me. It is not always how children are raised that cause them to be criminals. Some children will act as criminals upon their own choice. We need to know the facts before we decide it' a redneck thing. It probably wouldn't hurt if people knew the definition of redneck, prior to speaking about it.

    Hello, I am a current student of lynn camp highschool. I just wanted to inform all of the so called "adults" who put our school down, your no better, and you seem to think you can just talk about our school like that and not make our students feel bad? When i think about some of the things that have been said about my school it makes me want to cry. Honestly it hurts parents who talk..what if i put down your kids for their every mistake? I have tried to switch schools to escape this but i have to go to lynn camp, knox central won't accept me and i am not in the district for anywhere else. But when i think about this it makes me proud to go to a school where sterotypes are a thing we don't look at we'll take anyone in and accept them. No we don't have metal detecters but god do you all want to take all our freedom? Our kids don't want to be in school you know that you went to school once, so we need some slack. For heavensakes we have people from the state in almost everyweek making sure were doing better(learing wise)and we are don't get me wrong but god, perfect isn't reachable. I'm sorry my school doesn't live up to your stantdards but it does mine.

    My opinion is close to John's. I feel that since we took discpline out of the homes and the schools (because our gov. said so), the kids are out of hand...if the parents allow that. If one of my children gets into any trouble at school they will be punished at home. I am talking taking away things such as ipods, computers, tv, going out to eat.... stuff that hurts them the most. I wish schools were allowed to paddle the kids like when we were kids. I only remember one fight the entire four years at high school, no one wanted to go to the dreaded office. Don't talk bad about this school, this sort of thing can happen in any school. The teachers are doing all they are allowed to do to keep peace at the schools.

    This whole thing is wrong. 1- I don't see how kids can get a good education today, with all the violence, and bullying going on. Was this student provoked to the point of this? By no means does that make this ok. But, my children tell me things that go on everyday at school, and the bullying seems to be a big part of it. -2 My kids consider themselves to be "so called rednecks". The FFA program that they spend many hours involved in, has been a great benefit to their lives. The school systems need to find better ways to address these situations. And parents need to be more involved with their children.

    Look at yourself before judging others! Get the facts before making yourself look like a donkey!
