Kids these days sure are violent. My public school was the worst in the city I grew up in. For example, kids threw desks at teachers, fought in halls
and school yards, bought kitchen knives to school undetected (because they couldn't afford detection), for a short time we had this thing called
"the cage" across the street in a polish hall's parking lot.
To explain further, it was a 20ft cement wall corner fenced in 15ft, dimensions 20x20ft. The space was used to store ground keeping vehicles like
tractors, but it was mostly empty and the entrance unlocked. This led to scheduled fights commencing with no retreat, not to mention the door being
held by immature pre-teenagers. Some gruesome things happened in "the cage"... Eventually it was dismantled due to obvious reasons.
We had police cars circle the school yard frequently on schedules. Many of the school yard's play equipment was also dismantled for possible injury
reasons. Among other things, I went to a really weird public school. Was I ever involved? No, I found it was easier to play as one of the neutral
kids. Last time I checked the school was doing better, mainly due to the kids from my relevant grades being flushed out over the years.
So yes, as I said before, violence has become a problem, but who's to blame? Parents? Media? Television? All play some what of a factor I believe.
