City School Kids Evicted from 9/11 Memorial Site After Dropping Trash in Fountains During Field Trip

Ben Chapman et al., NY Daily News, June 24, 2012

A group of Brooklyn students on a school trip to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum were booted from the hallowed site after they callously hurled trash into its fountains.

The vile vandals from Junior High School 292 in East New York treated the solemn memorial—its reflecting pools honoring the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks—like a garbage dump.

“They kicked us out because of littering in the water. Kids were throwing baseballs in the pond thing,” said eighth-grader Anthony Price, 14, of East New York, who insisted he wasn’t one of the troublemakers.

In addition to the baseballs, witnesses reported seeing empty plastic soda bottles and other refuse in the water on Thursday.


In a separate incident on the same field trip, kids said one of their classmates was busted for attempting to bring firearm ammunition to the site.

“The kid had three bullets when they went through the metal detector,” said a JHS 292 student who wouldn’t give his name because he feared the other kids might take revenge.


Police said they discovered three .33-caliber rounds in a plastic bin in the security area of the monument on Thursday, but they did not make any arrests.

       “Like pearls before swine.”

      These are the days of our lives.

    I am absolutely certain that the vandals who threw trash into the fountains are among the one percent white student population at that very fine Brooklyn school — no, really, and I wouldn’t be sayin’ this just because the Obama bureaucrats might be listening…

  • Of course they littered and trashed the place; they were just marking their territory, not unlike a  pack of mangy, wild dogs.  

    • newscomments70

      Dogs actually bury their trash.

    • I just realized how clean and civilized my CAT is compared to black/brown children. He may be more intelligent as well, he just lacks the vocal machinery for speech.

      • Can you be really sure of that?   Have you ever heard the speech on the subway!  (The cat sounds better)

    This should not come as a surprise to anyone. Blacks and Hispanics could not care less about the 9/11 memorial site, or any other historical American landmark. The sole exception might the gruesome MLK monument in D.C.

    As the black and brown tide continues to wash over the country, I expect to see sites such as the 9/11 memorial  to fall into serious disrepair. They don’t feel it is representative of “their” history, so why pay for the upkeep? In fact, a new barrio grocery/cash advance store might go up on the site.

      Even though hundreds of their own were killed there, too. But it must be ALL black or JUST for Hispanics — if Whites are part of it, it doesn’t count as “theirs.”

        Because they think America is FOR WHITES. They use the typical “tv show” example. Which is when I say the Emmys/Grammys/ect is AMERICAS award show. Blacks have, and will continue to win THEM. The B.E.T awards are BLACKS ONLY. I also let them know how minorities are disproportionately OVER-represented in T.V/Commercials/Ect.

    • mikejones91

      Could not have said it better myself. Cliche, I know, but so true. The Story of America, is NOT their story. I guess I can’t really blame them either. 

    • tickyul

      I would not litter or disrespect the site.

      That being said, I have zero jingoistic feelings left for this once fine country.

      Insane and corrupt that is what this country is….no way I am waving a flag or blubbering over some propaganda piece. 

  • I don’t think there’s anything more lost on a Black than a place of memorial, remembrance, honoring of the fallen in battle, a place where people unlike them suffered, etc.

  • I wonder what would have happened if they had trashed a “Museum of Tolerance.”  I know there is one near the ghetto by a  Roscoe’s Chicken ‘N Waffles in L.A.

  • ncpride

    I’ll go ahead and say what we’re all thinking… What are the parents of that 1% thinking?!

    As for the trashing of the Memorial, nobody here is surprised I’m sure.

  • The only place black/brown would behave worse would be a science museum

  • Xanthippe2

    They may very well treat their own homes in the same manner.  Could be they aren’t trying to be disrespectful, they are just pig-like.

  • IstvanIN

    I can not wait for the “new” Americans” to take down Mount Rushmore.  And the Statue of Liberty has quite a bit of copper in her, at $3.00 a pound, noomsayin?

    • I’m surprised Obama hasn’t proposed adding himself to Mount Rushmore. He’ll claim it will add “diversity.”

    • How about the White House gutters? I am surprised theyre still there considering who occupies the House!!!!

  • No doubt related (at least spiritually) to the young pinheads who insulted an elderly lady to tears on a school bus last week, these are the future leaders of America.  I’m sure all our future enemies (arabs, muslims, chinese, russians) are highly impressed with America’s youths.

    (Thoroughly) Disgusted Chimpmaster

    • The worst part is that the very few white students have to act like the rest just to fit in. As bad as these brown children are, they are a terrible influence on the white minority.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Littering is a part of their “culture”, as is defiling, desecrating and “dissing” American institutions and traditions.  How DARE us criticize a culture different from our own?!  

    After all, their role model, Moochelle 0bama, said: “all this for a damned flag!” at the dedication ceremony of the 9/11 memorial so why should we expect them to show any respect??

    The leftest American media won’t touch this profane, disrespectful act; they have more important things to do like wring their hands and gnash their teeth over the NERVE of Neil Munro asking El Presidente a simple question.  Who the hell does he think he is??


  • joewest666

     Ah the virtues of diversity…

  • razorrare
  • Up to my neck in CA

    I was thinking the same thing, a typo of .22 LR, but there was a 33 caliber a long time ago. Either way why did this yoof have the bullets?

    • Michael C. Scott

      My thinking, too.  The only .33″ caliber cartridges I can think of offhand are the 8mm X 56R Hungarian Mannlicher M-1931 round, which uses a .329″ caliber bullet (other 8mm’s are generally .323″), and the old .33″ Winchester round for the Model 1886 lever-action rifle from that company.  I actually had an 1890 Mannlicher cavalry carbine and 1895 infantry rifle that had been converted sometime in the 1930s to the Hungarian 1931 round in my old collection, and swaged 225-grain .338″ bullets down to .329″ to use them for handloading (lever-actions never did anything for me).   I doubt at any rate the ammunition (sic “bullets”) recovered were actually .33″; a so-called “reporter” who refers to ammunition as “bullets” in a serious article really ought to be writing children’s books.

      Please, Mr. Chapman; they are “cartridges”.

      • Bob

        what do you expect from the “press”
        a bunch of bootlicking leftist illiterates who spend their days worshipping negros

  • mobilebay

    I’ll wager that with what goes on in classrooms today, these kids didn’t even know where they were or what the memorial stood for. A respect for our history, our country and its people is no longer taught. Teachers are too busy trying to keep the diverse ones from killing each other.

  • I like to call them–uhm,never mind!

  • WhitesRdumb

    I bet if they took these kids on a field trip to the city dump, they would bring some of the garbage home with them.
