If we yanked the rug out from under them and expected them to make it or die, then there might be a change toward what you are talking about, but that's not going to happen in this country.

    I'm trying to figure out where this supposed "case" is to rest. And what foundation choice this alleged "case" rests on, I think it's somewhere between quicksand and tapioca pudding.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Another School Shooting

    I haven't read through the whole thread. Do we know where this kid got the gun? Was it his parents'?

    Couldn't tell you. The news stated his family has a violent history, he was a loner, and targets were picked at random but haven't heard anything about how he obtained the weapon.

    I really haven't seen much on the news about it at all. There were pix of a couple of the kids he shot, and they looked like your average white-bread plain goofball kids to me. I'm surprised we aren't hearing more details about it.

    Yeah. There may not be much coming out of the shooter right now, he could be refusing to cooperate on things like how he got the weapon. Apparently there was no solid reason he picked the targets, but it is known that there were signs he was at least thinking about violence, I can't believe in this day and age a counselor wasn't alerted so as to be able to talk to him.

    I agree-I was the new kid at a cliquish private school and had the misfortune to come from the other prep school which was girls after 6th grade. but my class was the first coed one at that school in 7th grade but I transferred to the other school's all boys upper school and unlike guys ahead of me-I didn't have any other boys go with me-they stayed at the old school or went on to public schools. So from day one of my 7th grade year I was ridiculed by some (it didn't help that my old grade school had beaten these guys in football the year before) Plus I was slightly built with thick glasses. Fortunately my dad had been the Navy boxing champion and a golden gloves finalist. well one day one of the second string bullies picked a fight with me in the woodshop class run by the wrestling coach who was a fair man and didn't like seeing a kid picked on.


    so he took us both to the nearby matt. he noted that the other kid started it and I had the choice of boxing or wrestling The other kid outweighed me by 30 pounds. So I said boxing

    I nailed the kid with three quick jabs. The kid got mad and charged me and I caught him with an elbow under the eye. the coach grabbed him and tossed him into the corner and then told me to help the kid up and shake his hand (after the bag gloves-we didn't have full gloves-game off) The kid's eye looked pretty bad but he wasn't about to piss of a 230 pound 6-2 wrestling coach. I never had a problem with that guy again and while he went to another school a couple years later we were pretty good friends after that.

    I also didn't get into any more fights after that until the summer of my junior year and that was a graduating senior who was basically the class asshole. I was a blackbelt by then and I am glad I didn't really hurt him-we now face off in court where I have had about 11 cases with him (won 9, settled one, and one is in late stages of summary judgment motions). we never had a problem again after they unwired his jaw
