Prospect Resident thinks the punk should lose at least a year of school.
Her behavior should have her expelled from school for 180 days.... I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF THE YOUTH IN AMERICA DOING THINGS LIKE THIS AND RECEIVING ALMOST NO APPROPRIATE CONSEQUENCES. It is time for new laws to be instilled that make kids like this LOSE THEIR RIGHT TO A FREE PUBLIC EDUCATION! ... This kid is TRASH....
Len B. notes that the girl is well behind her peer group and suggests a solution:
This 13 year-old girl is in the FIFTH grade? Shouldn't she be in at least seventh, if not eighth, grade by now? That says a lot about this 'innocent' little angel.... From what I read, there's nothing to be investigated: this little girl should be permanently expelled and forced to spend some time in a reformatory or, at the very least, a kennel with other dogs just like her.
And forward-thinking Tina and Heather agree that adults beating up 13-year-olds is the way to go.
WHAT'S FAIR IS FAIR....THAT IS WHAT WE GET WHEN WE HAVE CHILDREN WITH NO DISIPLINE. SEEMS THE KID GOT WHAT SHE DESERVED!
That little brat got what she deserved. Her parents need to teach her some manners. No kid has the right to do that to any adult.
- A 13-year-old who throws food and punches is bad. A grownup who retaliates in kind probably didn't go far enough.
- A seven-paragraph story provides sufficient insight into a person's character that one can identify the "trash."
- Reader Bob Nield doesn't seem to care much one way or the other, but is pretty sure that the problem is "POOR LEADERSHIP AT THE TOP" and that it's also related to a decision to ban cell phones at a nearby high school.
