    I think you mean they are sorry they got caught.

If a teacher or bus driver was around and able to stop it, they would have.
    I think he was an old guy though. Maybe he had health issues? I don't know.

    I wonder how many in here that are actively diminishing this savage attack have young children of their own? Further, what their reaction would be after getting that phone call that their young son was in the emergency room with broken bones after being attacked on the school bus?

    Somehow, I don't think they'd be telling their child, "ah well son, it happens."
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You are wrong and I'll tell you why you are wrong: Children, like adults can do whatever they want to do when there is no one there to stop them. It's called free will. We are all born with it.




    Anyone can instill whatever they want to instill in their children and there will never be a guarantee that those children won't do whatever they want to do some time in the future.

    You have GOT to be kidding here? The father saying "I'm sorry for what happened to the victim, but that's just the way it is?" What the hell is that?

    Sorry, but these kids, all three of them should be charged as adults, and serve time.

    What say you?

    I agree.This is nothing more than a I'm only sorry because I was caught and I want leniency apology.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm only 33 and we didn't have any of these problems when I went to high school.....

    As far as I'm concerned the media is promoting school shootings...

    All these clowns want is fame....

    Look ... rather than this back & forth about definitions, maybe it would be helpful if we could agree that trying to explain this away with tired clichés about "poor self-respect" or "something lacking in their lives" rather than acknowledging that society has been excusing, and consequently, encouraging, this kind of behavior and so kids (and adults) like that know they can get away with a whole lot because of that.

    I think the point is how race plays into social perception of these incidents and how that drives the justice system to react. Which is not totally without merit (the recent trayvon martin case is a perfect example).

    As far as these kids go, the sentence of probation seems extremely light given the nature of the attack

    Bull, parents that instill proper beliefs in their children from the beginning do not have these problems with their kids just about killing a class mate on a school bus.
    Free will can be reigned in with proper upbringing.

    Wrong and you know it. And unless you are absolutely blind there is no doubt they are black. On top of that it has been proven they were black and the vic white.
