“Fort Bend ISD police would not discuss the nature of the fight, and told a FortBendNow.com reporter at the scene to leave the campus.”

This sounds like the approach the FBISD admins would take. If we keep it quiet and unreported, it didn’t happen. A riot at a FBISD high school, unheard of. . . keep us updated if they don’t shut down the servers over their Jonathan!

Of course the central office is denying it was a riot.

Channel 2 covered this "riot" last night on the local Houston news. On another note the FBISD communications office issued a statement today reported in local media asking for suggestions for 2 new school names.
