“Uphill both ways? Really, nobody cares how bad you had it back in the day! The fact is...kids are getting cheated because Obama is putting money where it shouldnt be. Like other countries, paychecks for people who are getting paid in the millions already, programs for children in the hood. But kids who have parents fighting in the military get cheated? Really...cheating kids, at all, IS HIS legacy but to do it to military kids while he is ordering their parents to fight and live in poverty. Food is overated for your kids anyway, right? now we can cheat their education. Seriously, I challenge Obama to sit and have a nice discussion with the wife of a Army WO1. After 23 years I would love to give him some ideas where to save money in the military. (I served also) and education for our kids is not giving him any points!! I have to say I believe this is the worst president we have had yet!! somebody get us a new president NOW!!!”

“You misunderstood me..I wasnt complaining at all..and I never heard any other kid either.. That was what is was and we got it done..Oh did I omit walking to school in a foot of snow, pouring rain! Back then kids would do anything to get out of the house, today the opposite...TV, Games etc..”
“The school systems are nothing like the military!! you dont have time to stop and say anything before you are dead! This kid is obviously bigger than most 6 year olds, he is over 4 feet! The teacher are not allowed to touch the kids, not even to make them sit down!! So I think (is this the first time?) If not than the parents need to be punished right along with the child .FINE the parents, make the child and the parents sit in on a video or lecture about NO VIOLENCE in the classroom. or IF that doesnt work next course of action he has to have anger management and a FINE or lecture, IF that doesnt happen then home schooled. What makes anyone think this is a fake story??? These kids can get up and walk out of the schools!! and the teachers cant stop them. and if anyone of them figure that out those of us that are parents are going to be in big trouble! and our futures are in big trouble.!!”

“Stop. Take a breath....
If the student "walks out of school" the front office should be notified along with the Truant Officer...The school will loose their ""Money"" and the Officer may lose his job if he does not act accordingly.
Men need to act like men....
Now, I will take a breath...
A person has the right to defend themselves....Period. If not, we will have a Trayvon Martin out break...(couldn't spell epedemic)....”
“Exactly!! At 14 years old your more scared of disappointment in your parents eyes for a 'one time' mistake, than you are about anything else. And the one thing my mother was worried about was my sister and I getting pregnant before we graduated. And yes, a girl can go through something like this with telling anyone!! I never had a close enough friend to talk to about periods or boys, sex etc. I was told that I could go to my parents and close aunt about anything but I was so embarrassed and shy I would never have. And maybe I would never had known what the signs of pregnancy were. There are grown adults that didnt know they were pregnant.! I am an EMT it happens. Please dont be so quick to judge, there are different circumstances for everybody.”
“Seems their are a couple of you that have forgotten that we pay the guards to watch them so they dont hurt more of us. Now you want us to pay for guards with a medical background? And then, you want us to pay to take care of them when they are on their death bed? He had a life sentance!! He deserved to die in his cell, and he should since what he did is making that girl die inside everytime she thinks of him, and what he did to her!!
He couldnt have been stuck in bed long, where was his family? Certainly not at the jail demanding to see him and get him outside help for his last days.
It was his families responsibility to get him turned, not the guards or wardon!!”

You explain to me how the family should of turned him while the guards would not even let them lift up the sheets? They did try to get a compassionate release, but you who thinks you know of what the family has done are criticizing what you feel should of been done. If you know nothing you should say nothing.”
“you know I grew up with a broken home. I went to my fathers every weekend for years!! and being from upstate NY, i was around guns at my dads house. He kept the cabinent locked but I knew where the key was. I could very easily taken one to school and shoot my "bullies", and my parents might not have known. Though I am sure my father would have noticed it gone.
This was an accident and I dont think blaming anyone is a good idea, dont you remember being sneeky as a kid? I can remember my cousin getting a gun and it went off in the kitchen of their house, and the bullet went through his sisters leg, and the little sister got metal in her leg too.
And I am very sorry for the girls parents, I'm sure she will be just fine. I cant imagine what the boy is going through too. I know he is beating himself up about it. Nobody wants to be in his position.
Having a criminal record has absolutely no barring on this one way or the other. This boy knew how to get that gun! You cant "watch" them every minute. No, the boy should keep all the responsibility for his actions. But I dont believe he should get anything but probation and community work. he is only 9!!”
