2007 May: School Violence

School violence seems to be getting worse.  Almost every day you hear about a student bring a gun to schoolor some other weapon and then threatens other students, teachers or faculty.  This has gone from elementary schools to colleges.  School violence know no age, race or gender.  it encompasses it all.  Is there a way to prevent these or will they just continue?

  3. Hey jooberg i shure hope u know that these people who killed everyone committed suicide so when you write that u are offending the dead so next time think of the sh*t you wright. That one big pict with Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold they killed themselves right after their murder they took a single shot to the head right afer the columbine school shooting they did the shooting cause people bullied them!

  5. Actually the Kent state wasn’t a shooting by students it was by national guardsmen in the middle of a Vietnam protest 2 of the students were just going to class they weren’t even affiliated but guess what else? A undercover FBI Agent was in the crowd
    think he might have shot those innocent kids?

  6. John,

    You are correct, Kent State was not done by a student, but it was done at a school. That is why it was included here.

  11. Seriously, violence in schools needs to STOP. I’m in middle school in california and there’s 1-6 fights EVERY day. I’m student body president and I can’t stand seeing a beautiful community with beautiful minds go to waste.
    It takes one person to start a revolution.
    Come on everyone,
    pay it forward!

  12. Hey,
    you guys will be interested in the matter of fact that youtube.com is full with videos. People who tell Eric H. and Dylan K. for example “rest in Peace” and stuff like that. They´ve putted on comments like “these guys were my hero”, when is it going to stop. I feel like I wanna do something, and started to get in contact with youtube.com to stop the situation. Children , small ones with like 12 years can watch that and I think they really don´t have too.

  14. it just sucks… Ok i get that you are being bullied and stuff and that sucks, but it doesn’t make sense for you to kill people. Especially people that never even do anything to you. If you are planning to kill yourself at the end then why bring other people down with you?

  17. jen197-

    WOW! What a way to condone murder. And you did. Even IF they were bullied, they made their own CHOICE to get guns and go in and kill other human beings. They did NOT have that right. I do understand the bullying issue, however, killing another human being (or more) is NOT the answer. Period.

    Now, please go give your statement as you wrote it to the parents and loved ones of the victims. To their faces. I bet you couldn’t.
