In an age when teachers and schools get sued for disciplining students, calling in the police is often the safest course of action for them.

Im the second one who got arrested I don't think it was appropriate to broad cast my information to the whole town being that I don't even live in Avon.

That would be Jessica the so called editor. She goes to the police department for info them spins what she sees into bogus stories for her blog. Not reporting...more like gossiping.

Patch is ownd by AOL and AOL is cutting the Patch budget. The editor is following the corporate formula of cut and paste and in this area, Jessie Sawyer is pretty green. She's well intentioned on some community issues, but she has made errors before (reported people as arrested who were not because the police from uses the term differently). Read this and realize that Patch content is based on a formula for content from its AOL parent: http://jimromenesko.com/2012/02/08/patch-to-reduce-staff-change-editorial-focus/ KInd of sad that we think Patch is more than it really is. Mostly AOL is selling the data gleaned from users and visitors (using your real name makes it worse). It's all the browser tracking issues in the news of late.

Well... nobody would have known that it was you if YOU did not say that it was.

To clarify for you all, this article represents traditional reporting of public information provided by the police department. No names were used because those arrested were juveniles. Susan Schoenberger/Associate Regional Editor

That's fantastic, but what you are NOT telling your readers is that you simply go to the police departments and review the arrest records. You do not review actual police reports and gather all of the FACTS before writing about something just to get a headline. This isn't news. It's half-baked reporting.

I don't understand how this is "half-baked." I go to the school and this is the basically what happened without the "he said, she said". The editor obviously can't write down specifics on the fight because it involves juveniles. The information in this article is all true and factual. I don't see Jessie "taking sides," she is simply writing about what happened. Jessie, to me, seems like a fair editor. Please don't resort to cyber-bullying to get your voice heard. If you don't like Patch, then don't read it. Nobody is asking you too.

If you don't want your business broadcast via public information/records then I suggest that you make better choices & avoid verbal and physical altercations. Next time remove yourself from the situation and ask an adult for help. You should also keep in mind that it is a privilege to attend this school as you're an outside resident.

Aren't the facts that two juveniles were arrested due to a fight at the high school? Isn't that what was reported? That's all we really need to know. If you want to know more, go down and request copies of police reports and review them yourselves. Maria F. - you seem pretty angry at Jessica. Your claims that she goes to the pd to get info to spin bogus stories is silly. She posted basic facts about the incident - no gossip, no bogus story... Would also be nice if you would post your FULL names as is Patch policy.
