    I read this to some of my High School students and they got it!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Sad, but true!
    Whats sad is that the standard of living and quality of life was far better in 1957 than it is in 2010.

    I would much rather live in the 40s and 50s than in today's time. My reason for this? PEOPLE WERE NORMAL BACK THEN! Today people are helpless infants trapped in adult bodies, who rely on "the man" to protect and provide for them.

    The government we have today would have never survived back in 1957. It would have been total ANARCHY. The citizens AND government of 1957 WOULD call our current government today a boarder line communist style of government.

    i wish it were still that way,for my sake.

    and the bad kids in school are often treated better than the good kids.

    something i noticed in my freshman year at high school,a gangster wannabe brought a handgun to school,and got in a fight,thankfully the ammunition was in his locker.

    but he drew it.

    he got expelled after getting tackled by some rather fat security guards.

    but from what ive read(i cannot find stories on it anymore) he never was charged with anything.

    the public had sympathy for this "scared,worried young man"



    whereas a month or 2 beforehand at the same school,a friend of mine was expelled for having made an empty shotgun shell and a dog tag chain into a necklace,he served a few weeks in juevenile detention though i am not sure what for exactly.

    no public outcry.





    my point is,things are rarely handled properly in high school these days.

    yall remember the california kid whom was expelled last month for keeping his shotgun in his truck off school grounds during school,after he went hunting?

    and even older at my former school,the roger needham incident in which one student was killed and a 2nd wounded,that student only recieved counseling and is now well off from what ive read.

    story can be found below,about 3/4 of the way down.(feb. 1978)

    http://www.columbine-angels.com/Scho...ugust_1980.htm


    my friend i mentioned before actually had the locker next to the one with the bullet hole above it.



    sorry about the rambling,i am bored.
    not a lawyer, dont take anything i say as legal advice.
