However, do you think a lot of the violence now is the fact that teens have no job prospects and aren't learning trades?
Either way overall violence has actually decreased among all age groups except young black men, against other young black men. Whatever violence is or is not in schools, overall it has dramatically decreased since the data has been compiled.

What do you remember doing at that age? Me, it was girls, experimenting with altered states of consciousness(sometimes to the point of unconsciousness), mowing lawns and shoveling snow for pocket change, girls, playing war and manhunt, hunting, playing hockey, martial arts, hunting, and trying to fit in some schoolwork in there. Maybe we were just way too busy to go on rampages? I know I thought about going on rampages a few times.edit on Sat, 26 Oct 2013 01:45:04 -0500 by TKDRL because: (no reason given)
