A 16 year old launched this attack, I won't enumerate all of the school killings that have happened, it almost gives these murderers some voice to do so.
But, my question is this...
Floyd Starr coined the phrase "there is no such thing as a bad boy" back in 1913 and started a new type of reform school bases on this primus. The school took in wayward boys, delinquents, and those who just weren't wanted. I was there and fit into the third category.
It was a rough place, a lot of little criminals running around, fights were a daily occurrence as were sexual assaults, saying this I look back with some fondness at my experience there,
my asthma vanished a few weeks after I arrived, as did a skin rash that had plagued me, it took me years to realize that good had come from being there.
But, was Mr. Starr wrong? are there bad boys? Is this a nature verses nurture thing? Do these young killers come wired as such?
somehow I got a double post...sorry
