On Wednesday, Chicago police say that dozens of students from Simeon Career Academy vandalized and stole from a Walmart while they were supposed to be out protesting gun violence.
Employees and shoppers were stunned by the out of control students and the amount of destruction that they caused at the Walmart located on the South Side of Chicago. Fox 32 reports:
Police say between 40 and 60 of those students crossed the street and trashed parts of the store, knocking over product displays, yanking items off shelves, breaking packages, and stealing small items like chips and candy.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Chicago Public Schools said: “We are very concerned by these allegations and we are reviewing the matter.”
Chicago police said they were reviewing “high quality” video surveillance of the incident to identify those who were involved who will most likely be charged with “misdemeanors and face discipline from the school.”
