Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Its a typical sight in American public schools: Two kids fighting either during school hours or after school. So-n-so called me a four letter word and they are going to pay! No biggie right? Fights at school have been around as long as school. Remember Nelly Olson in Little House on the Prairie? Didn’t you want Laura to punch her in the face a few times and square it all up?

Its a typical sight in American public schools: Two kids fighting either during school hours or after school. So-n-so called me a four letter word and they are going to pay! No biggie right? Fights at school have been around as long as school. Remember Nelly Olson in Little House on the Prairie? Didn’t you want Laura to punch her in the face a few times and square it all up?

But when parents get involved, it gets a little confusing. The newest tale of school fighting involves two young girls, a youtube video, several other school age peers watching and cheering, and finally the mom of one of the girls standing on the side line cheering her daughter on!

The mom was promptly arrested and faces some steep criminal charges. The girls and other bystanders got away scott free as the school says that it was not held on school ground or on school hours.

Yes, the mom should be arrested. With moms like this who needs terrorists? Our own parents can help destroy the fabric of an already crumbling society. And they can cheer their kids on while ethics go right out the window. Way to parent!

But is the school right by not punishing the girls or bystanders? Nope. Those girls animosity didn’t just erupt all of a sudden outside of school. I am sure that the rivalry was building on school hours and on school property and the school just wants to wash their hands of the whole issue. In reality, the parents and the school are both to blame because they allowed it to build up to this point. Are they going to wash their hands of it when one of the kids brings a gun to school and makes the squabble final? Then I bet the school and parents are going to say “I never saw it coming. They were such normal kids and such good students.” We have seen it before and we are going to keep seeing it until schools and parents both begin to take responsibility for creating these little monsters.
