A huge crowd of teens swarmed police officers and even assaulted them during a school carnival that is now cancelled. Eight children were arrested and have been charged with some major offenses.
This is a middle school! Obviously, the parents of these kids haven’t taught them to ALWAYS have respect for police officers or suffer the consequences.
The video clip below is shocking and shows teens attacking police officers.
THIS IS WHY CALIFORNIA CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS…

A crowd of more than 200 swarmed police officers at a Morgan Hill middle school carnival Friday night after the cops arrested a boy who had given a knife to another student, officials said.
Several police officers suffered minor injuries in the melee, drawing paramedics and nearly 60 law enforcement officers from surrounding cities, the sheriff’s office and the California Highway Patrol. By the end of the night, eight juveniles had been arrested and jailed.
The trouble started earlier in the day at Britton Middle School, which was holding a carnival with rides, games, food and free admission, according to the Facebook event. School employees told two Morgan Hill police officers stationed at the carnival that a boy there had a knife. That young person was arrested without any issues around 6 p.m., police said.
School officials identified the boy who had given him the knife, and told police that the same juvenile had been kicked off campus earlier in the day after causing a disturbance.
“When police attempted to contact him, he responded in an aggressive manner, took a fighting stance and threatened officers with bodily harm,” Morgan Hill police said in a statement. “Additional units responded, and the subject was taken into custody. During the arrest, Morgan Hill officers were attacked and assaulted by the suspect and two other juveniles, resulting in minor injuries to the officers.”
A large crowd of people descended on the action, many of whom confronted police and refused to disperse, according to the police department, which called it a “hostile environment.” Some of those in the crowd displayed gang signs, shouted gang slogans and wore clothing affiliated with gangs, police said.
