Bus Drivers fault for not stopping it.
My bus route goes through the ghetto. Anything starts happening the driver pulls over and sorts it out before fists and shanks come out.
EX. First few days of school a brawl broke out in the back of the bus between some "gangstas". He went back there and PHYSICALLY broke it up.
Hollow points can come from hollow minds too. Just a sayin' Kidding with you two

Why not put the blame where it actually belongs? Like the parents and the people in the government that has basically put a strangle hold on a parents ability to properly raise thier child. And on Dr. Phil. That is one person that I would love to go back in time and shoot in the head the second they were born. His ideals on how to raise children is a big part of the reason that parents are no longer able to manage thier children.
What I find funny is the fact that there are a million and one books on how to raise a child. And not one is applicable to every single child in one town...much less the whole world.
I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang

Youth Violence Project - National Statistics
Youth Violence Project - Survey HoaxContrary to public perception, violent crime in schools has declined dramatically since 1994. The annual rate of serious violent crime in 2007 (40 per 1,000 students)was less than half of the rate in 1994. These data are victim reports collected as part of the National Crime Victimization Survey and are not derived from school records.
Facts: The rate of violent crimes in U.S. public schools has declined since 1994 (Defoe et al., 2002). The serious violent crime rate (total number of murders, aggravated assaults, robberies, and rapes per 100,000 students) in 2001 was less than half what it was in 1994.
Between 1995 and 2007, the percentage of students who feared attack or harm at school decreased from 12 to 5 percent. Between the two most recent survey years, 2005 and 2007, the percentage of students who feared attack or harm at school decreased from 6 percent to 5 percent. Away from school, there was no pattern of increase or decrease in the percentage of students who feared attack or harm between 1999 and 2007. However, the percentage of students who feared attack or harm away from school was smaller in 2007 (3 percent) than in 2005 (5 percent).
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
There are no one-liner solutions unfortunately. If we give parents and schools lots of power, next thing we know is parents and schools are beating kids. If we don't, then they have no control. The government tells parents all the things they can't do, then everyone blames the parents. Whichever you go, people bitch about the inevitable excesses.
I'm sick of hearing "blame the parents!" to give the little brats a pass. Depending on the jurisdiction, the government actually gives parents very little authority now before it becomes criminal assault, criminal abuse etc. - basically allowing parents the only choice of telling the kid "go to your room" - as if that is punishment - and hoping the kid does it. Government does not allow the parental fear factor anymore IF it should to be necessary.
However, both kids and adults getting into fights is as old as humanity itself.
Ocala Florida is a very messed up area of highly conflicting personalities and relative affluence becoming extreme levels of foreclosures and business closings. Its old KKK territory intermixed with Snowbird Yankee retirees and overwhelmingly white. Alot of different things are clashing into each other from all different directions there.
If you are looking for a great house at a low price and really dislike cold weather, its a good potential. Only save enough in your budget to buy burglar bars for the windows. A pet pitbull a good idea too.
