If we had the standards of today back in the day, I'd probably still be doing time.

This is sad, that it is so true. I heard someone make a remark about the cops should do something about some kids. It starts at home.

Heck, 1977 and 1987 were the same as well compared to 2007,at least thats how it was when I went to school in 86... This was a good find, and so very true. My class of 86 was just like the school in 77.. We got our whoopins from the teachers and principals, we did out fights out in the parking lot.. Heck, we even did the hunting... We carried our shot guns in our gun racks as well.. Our parents whipped our butts when we needed it too, or we got a good backhand.

But then again, I grew up in a really small school. ( I wish it was like it used to be )

Anybody doing anything about it?
All this came about because the majority of Americans with enough sense to see how wrong it is remain silent.
Liberals should be shouted down with deafening roar every time they open their traitorous mouths.

10-Year-Old Charged With Possession Of Weapon On School Property
An elementary student in Marion County was arrested Thursday after school officials found her cutting food during lunch with a knife that she brought from home, police said.

The 10-year-old girl, a student at Sunrise Elementary School in Ocala, was charged possession of a weapon on school property, which is a felony.

According to authorities, school employees spotted the girl cutting her food while she was eating lunch and took the steak knife from her.


The girl told sheriff's deputies that she had brought the knife to school on more than one occasion in the past.

Students told officials that the girl did not threaten anyone with the knife.

The girl was arrested and transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center.

Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.
Zero tolerance means zero intelligence.

I actually did a few of those things!!!

10 years old I get a BB gun for Christmas. I take it over to my friends house around the corner and we proceed to shoot out a window in a vacant house that is up for sale. 2 days later we get caught. My step-dad takes me out in the garage and destroys the BB gun. I get whipped. I have to mow lawns to get the $20 for the new window.

18 years later I become a cop....go figure.

It is really funny to see how all your old school buds turned out. All those yahoos who became doctors, lawyers, businessmen, and the smart nerds who turned out going to rehab 6 times.

This goes along well with the whole anti-biotic and vaccination point that a lot of my elders tell me about. The world of fear has come and it is rediculous. I am only 19 and i wish i lived back then. All of these "diseases" and "problems" with kids never existed before. Its all hype IMO
