I can tell you from experience within NYC public schools (well, at least MY school) that the NYPD rarely get involved. Just to get a kid suspended there has to be proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Sometimes, depending on the severity of the issue, a teacher's word isn't enough, you need multiple student statements to get your ducks in a row. One time, a student completely MADE UP an accusation about a teacher (the the teacher threw a book at the student) and set in motion a series of events that led an investigator to come and investigate the teacher. This despite the fact that it was the STUDENT who threw the book at the TEACHER. Nothing happened to the student even after the the interviewer determined that he didn't even need to talk to the teacher (based on the students' statements he knew the teacher was ok). Then, the next week, the teacher got upset and yelled about something in a class, and the kids all yelled back not to be" pissed because XxXxXxXx was trying to get her fired."
The kid in the video must have a history of drawing on desks or graffiti.
