Expelled Waukesha North Teen Forced Way Into Classroom, Police Say

Jordan T. Hartz is accused of threatening to kill a student at the high school on Wednesday.

An 18-year-old man who was expelled from Waukesha North High School is accused of entering the school, causing a ruckus and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend's friend, according to a criminal complaint.

Jordan T. Hartz was charged Thursday in Waukesha County Circuit Court with possession of narcotic drugs, carrying a concealed weapon, bail jumping, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also was charged Thursday with two count of burglary as a party to a crime in an unrelated incident.

According to the criminal complaint:

Hartz called his ex-girlfriend on Wednesday, yelling at her for blocking his phone number. The girl’s friend got on the phone to calm Hartz down, when Hartz threatened the male friend.

“I got heat,” said Hartz, according to the girl’s statement to police. “I’m gonna put a boot through your jaw.”

After the conversation finished, the ex-girlfriend went into her English class. She told the school resource officer Hartz pushed his way past the teacher who was trying to close the classroom door.

“Who the (expletive) was I talking to before?” Hartz yelled.

Other teachers came to help and Hartz ran away. The ex-girlfriend told police she was very frightened and was afraid Hartz would hurt or kill her.

The male friend told police Hartz threatened him.

“I am going to kill you, and I know where you live,” said Hartz, according to the male friend’s statement.

After Hartz left the building, a Waukesha police officer saw his vehicle after an attempt-to-locate call was sent via dispatch. Hartz had unpaid parking tickets, so the officer pulled him over for suspended registration.

The police officer located a 10-inch long hunting knife beneath the driver’s seat, syringes and other heroin paraphernalia, and a metal tin that tested positive for heroin.

Hartz told the school resource officer investigating the incident that he was angry the ex-girlfriend had blocked his phone number and his mother’s phone number. He felt that if he was with the girl, he would stop using heroin and cocaine.

When the male friend started speaking to him, Hartz told police, he was angry, threw a bathroom mirror on the floor and decided to go to Waukesha North High School.

Because Hartz was banned from the school, he flagged down another student at a side door to let him into the building. Waukesha North locks all doors and visitors have to be buzzed through the front door.

Hartz faces up to 38 months in prison if convicted in Wednesday’s incident. He also faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of two counts of burglary as a party to a crime.

According to the criminal complaint in the burglary case:

Hartz and a juvenile broke into two homes in the 400 block of Lake Street in October. The items from the burglary were later located by the Greenfield Police Department.

Hartz told Waukesha police he and his friend stole jewelry and a video game controller from one home and 12 rings from a different home. The two individuals sold the jewelry for $850 at two separate stores.

Yes - we have been thinking of the girl this happen to - and I truely believe that she she doesn't want him to just Rot in some Prison, she would want him to get help & become the person she knows he once was & can be come again. Drugs make people do unthinkable things. Remember - it was a Threat & yes an action - that does not deserve to be put away & the key thrown out. It does deserve that the boy get help!!! If you look on CCAP - he only just got into trouble with the Law the past 12 - 13 months. He is still a Boy that needs to be forgivin in time & still loved. I'm not saying let him out & continue to roam right now - that would be Insane & asking for trouble. He needs help & most importantly - needs to be drug free in order to see the real soul that he has & to RECEIVE the Help. Before we judge - we need to remember that we are not perfect and we have done wrong ourselves. If there is anyone out there that can honestly say "they haven't" they are then only lieing to themselves.

Our society today love's illegal substance's and even want's to legalize weed. Mental problems don't cause people to start self medicating. People start self medicating with drugs (and or alcohol) because they totally enjoy the high and they enjoy the ego trip they get among their peers who deem their friends acceptable. Having a poor sense of self worth is not a mental illness issue but rather a poor value system issue to begin with. Obviously this kid and millions of them today worst then ever have lousy values. By the time they're in 7th grade you can bet 75% of them smoke pot casually or regularily (does 420 ring a bell?). Why? Poor choices made because of poor values. They absolutely love the high, if they didn't they wouldn't continue. Addictions start because of poor values first and then loving the high secondly, period. Anyone remember the commercial with the message that began back in the late 70's that said "Don't let a good kid go bad, don't leave your keys in your car"? Anyone not comatose should be able to figure out that in reality a good kid with a good value system wouldn't steal the car because they knew it was illegal to do so, period. The commercial was excusing poor behavior but then that's what pooh-litical correctness did and still does! Note: Good people don't murder people because they know it's illegal! Again, being bad is NOT a mental health issue...it's a bad behaviorial bad value system issue. VOTING FRAUD IS DISENFRANCHISING

ALL CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES. Yes he did make mistakes. And he needs to pay the price for the mistakes he made. If we as a culture decide that his punishment is jail for a while, then that's the price he needs to pay before moving on with his life. Just because we all make mistakes does not mean that we don't have to pay the price for those mistakes.
