Two students face felony assault charges in the beating this week of a Como Park High School teacher ... According to the charges, the two, who were not students of Rawlings, entered the classroom while class was in session and ignored his demands that they leave. When he tried to escort them out, one punched him on the chin, while the second punched him in the right eye ... The school’s assistant principal told police they learned that the two entered the classroom to assault another student over a marijuana transaction gone bad. The student said he expected one of the students to come looking for him and said that although he was in the classroom, he was wearing headphones and didn’t see or hear the assault.A couple bucks thrown at the schools, the cops, the parents, the kids, whatever isn't going to change anything. When there are children who think nothing of wandering the halls of their school, looking for a pot dealer to beat him up, votes and laws and money and chanting and marching aren't going to accomplish a thing.
If you want social justice, however that's defined, you're going to need to get involved personally, one-on-one, with a child. Parenting can't be replaced by whatever it is you think is going to happen because of your vote.
