The 15-year-old swung it at a teacher Thursday morning but struck a fellow student who intervened, Gary Police said. The victim, a 19-year-old Lew Wallace High School senior, suffered cuts on her hand and thumb protecting the teacher. School security detained the freshman and confiscated the weapon.
"It's heavy, and it's metal, and it's sharp," Detective Sgt. Darlene Breitenstein said after delivering the girl to the Lake County (Ind.) Juvenile Justice Center, where she is being held on battery charges.

She must have chosen the mace because it's easier to conceal than a lance or broadsword.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)
