Bullied Student Speaks Out After Being Suspended For Bringing Weapon To School For ‘Protection’


PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Lisselox Veloz has a 3.0 grade point average and school officials say she has never been in trouble before, but last week the 16-year-old was arrested and suspended from Swenson Arts and Technology High School.

“Everyone knows about,” said Veloz. “It’s not like anything new to nobody.”

Veloz said after months of being bullied, she took matters into her own hands. The sophomore, who aspires to be a detective one day, brought a paring knife to school. A metal detector caught it and Lisselox was arrested by Philadelphia police and suspended for five days.

“I know that it was wrong to have it, but I felt like I needed something to protect myself because I know what she’s capable of,” Veloz expressed.

Lisselox said she alerted a dean at the school, several months ago, that she was being bullied. According to a spokesperson from the school district, they didn’t know there was a problem until recently.

  1. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

  2. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!
