Who hasn't read the news stories of several parents murdering their children in the last week? do all parents murder their children? No, they do not.
Agreed.

If you called for help, you'd risk those monsters going after you next. I don't blame the bystanders in this situation at all. At least recording it provides video evidence to prosecute those 2 losers with.

Now if they're laughing, hooting, and cheering or otherwise actively egging them on, that's a different story.

However, it is far more rare from suburban Black girls or Black girls in rural areas. At least that is my experience. A better question is this. Why is inner city violence so commonplace.
This might sound stupid, but I think density and environmental chaos/din contributes to a constant level of subconscious stress, and stress makes people more reactive.

In the 2015-16 school year, 5.8 percent of the nation's 3.8 million teachers were physically attacked by a student. Almost 10 percent were threatened with injury, according to federal education data. 12% of those teacher victims of verbal or physical violence saw a counselor or mental health professional after the violent incident. Additionally, 1 in 5 teachers who were the victims of physical attacks, threats of physical violence or verbal aggression/intimidation did not report that violence to school administrators, according to a 2017 survey. Fourteen percent of the victims didn't tell their colleagues about the violence. Twenty-four percent didn't even tell their families.

The first 10-20 years of my teaching career I did not know a single teacher who had been assaulted, and I only knew a couple who had been threatened with assault. Every one of the students involved in those threats had been expelled.

Since around the late 90’s that has dramatically changed. I now know numerous teachers who have been threatened, an alarmingly high number who have been actually assaulted, a shocking number who were physically harmed, and unfortunately, some who have been permanently injured. I also know some who quit teaching over it, including some who ended up with PTSD. In most cases the kid returned not only back to school in a week or often less, but usually to that teacher’s classroom.

It is too common of an occurrence in schools these days. Far too common. And in far too many cases the teacher finds themselves re-victimized by the school system for “allowing it to happen”.

BS. Research Asian and black mass killing rates. There’s are higher than those of whites in the U.S. but the media is all over the race aspect when someone white is the offender.

Yes. The racist double standards are quite obvious. Racism against whites is acceptable. Fortunately more whites are finally speaking up and aren’t afraid of being labeled a racist for simply defending their race from injustice. Cudos to them.

If you’re white and haven’t been accused of being a racist there’s a good chance you haven’t been pulling your weight.

When black folks do something wrong like criminal or say something not politically correct and are in trouble for it. I blame the black folks, but I also put blame on white liberals who perpetuate blacks to say things which than often can lead to violence. How can white liberals hold white people for using offensive speech that leads to violence but not for black people. But when black folks say something wrong, or do something wrong like violence. The white liberal is nowhere to be seen to defend black people. I personally think the white liberal, who I do love and care for, is part of the big problem we have in this country.

I stand corrected. Must be the more current events that skewed my perception.

Something has to be done just way to out of hand.

Our media doesn't report anymore they sensationalize facts to compete with other stations and the internet. News doesn't sell bias and click bait does.

Left or right both parties use events to push their own agenda's this is why we have Trump for our president, people just said f*ck it and are fed up.

thank you for sharing the above startling and scary facts, oldhag.

so 5.8%, 220,000 American public school teachers, were physically attacked by students during a single school year. I had no idea teaching public school was such a dangerous profession. no idea at all.

why do teachers allow such physical abuse by students to continue? Is there no push back from the teachers, their union, school administrations, local school boards to protect them?
