SRO's Body Armor Stops Student's Knife Attack

October 20, 2011  | 

A North Carolina school resource officer's body armor absorbed the blade of an 8-inch knife a student stuck into the officer's back.

The Union Pines High School student, who has not been identified because of his age, has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer, possessing a weapon on school grounds, and damage to school property.

School Resource Officer Stephen Clark, 43, was attacked at the high school at 1981 Union Church Road in Cameron about 8:50 a.m. on Tuesday.

The School Resource Officers have a hard job even though it's in the schools. Some of the kids are worst than criminals on the streets. They have to be prepared for any situation. SROs please don't take your job lightly.

A prime example on always wearing your vest regardless of the assignment. Kudos Officer Clark

Must have been good quality armor! ALWAYS wear your body armor when on duty even if it feels hot or uncomfortable! Hopefully this homicidal, cowardly back stabbing little punk will be tried as an adult. He has earned a lot more than a juvenile system slap on the wrist and being regarded as some kind of hero by others that may be like-minded. Way to go Officer Clark!

Just an update. The attacker was tried as an adult and received 10 years in prison.
