Sounds a little like it was here in the USA, when this country was made into the greatest country in history. Hard work and discipline never hurt anyone, now our kids are fat and lazy.

So what do you propose we do about it? Close all schools as woodchuck suggests?

By Saeed Ahmed and Christina Walker, CNN - Updated 3:21 PM ET, Fri April 20, 2018

We're only 16 weeks into 2018, and there have already been 20 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed. That averages out to 1.25 shootings a week.
The parameters CNN followed in this count are:

A shooting that involved at least one person being shot (not including the shooter)
A shooting that occurred on school grounds
We included grades K through college/university level
We included gang violence, fights and domestic violence
We included accidental discharge of a firearm as long as the first two parameters are met

We are not the land of liberty. That's a song.

This is a disturbingly violent place.

The United States is the country where children are shot & killed in school every single week.

We are the nation of police brutality and mass incarceration.

We must be honest here.

I don't know. I am sure that there were some of all those things in every country. But the numbers of the US vs all these other "civilized" countries is so far out of line that any comparison like that is silly. Their numbers are hardly a blip on the radar screen compared to us.

A middle school boy allegedly opened fire at an Indiana school Friday morning, police said, leaving a teacher and another student injured, the latest in a string of school shootings this year.

The suspected shooter, a student at Noblesville West Middle School, located about 27 miles north of Indianapolis, asked to be excused from class and then returned to the room armed with two handguns, Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt said at a news conference.

The teacher and student victims were shot in that room, Jowitt said, adding that the situation was resolved quickly and the suspect was taken into custody.

Really? I said that? I say any adult who owns a gun should make sure a 13 year old can not get their hands on it. Or else the adult is responsible for what happens.

Of the 96 Americans shot and killed each day, about 20 are veterans committing suicide. #MemorialDay

Kyle. I agree with you, sort of, we should do something to avoid school violence, but you are blaming the wrong tool. Prescription drugs are to blame. Please do a little homework and find that these shooters are on psychotropic drugs that alter personalities. The kids that do the killing are on DRUGS! Prescription drugs, but then again, that doesn't conform to your agenda. Please educate yourself beyond the tool used or you are part of the problem.

Are some of them on drugs? Very likely. I think there are many reason for school violence and all reasons should be investigated.

wow. What is my agenda? I support the second amendment. I support the right of all abiding adults to own guns. I also support sensible gun laws that I am sure could be strengthened in many areas such as background checks for all gun sales. So you think prescription drugs are the sole cause of school violence?

I resent you saying I am part of the problem when you have no idea what I support or don't support regarding school violence. I have just posted school shootings when they happen.

When President Donald Trump on Thursday met with victims, families and others affected by the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, which left 10 people dead and 13 wounded, at least one parent was not impressed with his demeanor, continuing a pattern of the president failing to show empathy during tragedies.

Rhonda Hart, whose daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was among eight students who died in the shooting last month, told The Associated Press her conversation with Trump “was like talking to a toddler.”
