Earlier this week, Logan Clark, a 14-year-old part-time student at Hug High School in Reno got himself shot while rampaging with a pair of butcher knives in a busy school courtyard, threatening his fellow students. A school resource officer came upon the scene, skipped the hugs and repeatedly ordered young Logan to drop the knives and get back. When asking nicely failed, the officer applied some ballistic intervention ending Logan’s run.
The student’s father then casts blame on everyone except his son’s behavior for the son getting shot.
That’s right – let the blame game begin. Little Logan’s daddy got on Facebook within hours and cast blame upon everyone except his son for what happened. Daddy Clark blames the cop for not using a “Tazzer” first. He blames the school because his son was a victim of bullying. He’s claims he’s gong to file suit against the Reno PD.
After watching the video clips, it looks to me that Logan’s menacing behavior with those knives wasn’t one bit defensive. The videos are embedded at the bottom of this page.
Here’s dad Justin Clark’s first post, since deleted from his Facebook page, with warts and all:
My son was shot today by the school police at hug high school. Please go to his page and tell if u can y the officer pulled his side arm and not his tazzer his name is Logan Clark he is the one with the red hat and red shirt in his profile pic. The video is not hard to find but hard to watch. I would like some public support in the battle with the city that’s sure to come from this. My son was a a superior athlete and has lost part of his lung , with alot more things that will b known over the next few days especially tomorrow. Now he won’t have the ability that he had before,so he won’t have the chance to go to college or any other way to use this gift. Cuz it’s gone , so the Reno police department needs to b held accountable. Thank you for reading this and if u watch the video and agree that nonlethal force could have been used. Leave a comment there is also a different angle at a website called Mic I was advised not to look at this video so as of now I have not
It would seem dear Dad didn’t get the response he had hoped for. A few minutes later, Mr. Clark posted this not so veiled threat:
To idiots that think Logan was wrong know he was being bullied he is not the kind to back down. He brought the knives because he was gonna b jumped and he was the school knew of this and failed to act so before u run ur mouth know the facts don’t speak. And if anyone has such opinion so strong that they would like to share it me please hit me on messenger I’ll b bald to discuss it with u personally in person
Inquiring minds checked out Logan’s Facebook page which turned out to be loaded with jewels. Ordinarily, due to privacy laws, we’d never know about Logan’s recent history of time spent in juvenile lockup. But thanks to the magic of social media we know that the kid was a regular there and hence a “part-time student”.
On April 20 he posted that he was “getting out on May 21”. On September 21 he posted that he was going to jail “rn” (right now). The next day: “they let me go but i got court today”. And on October 16th, he posted: “dam going back to jail tmmr for at least a year”, but they let him out on November 22, per another post.
It also appears that he used Facebook to fence stolen merchandise. The day after they let him out in November, he began an advertising campaign to sell some nice high-end merchandise. He was asking $100 each for Fendi belts. He also had MCM wallets and pouches as well as Gucci backpacks for sale. Earlier in the year, he had True Religion jean shorts. And Hilfiger watches. “HMU” (hit me up) he posted.
By all appearances, this kid was (and remains) a menace to society. Dad’s protestations to the contrary, he was never going to college for his superior athletics. Running from the police isn’t a collegiate sport. Neither is slashing innocent students. The blame for Logan Clark getting shot lays right at Logan Clark’s feet.
Caution: Not safe for work. Language and violence.
