You can’t put all the blame on the kids, you got to put some on the parents and the associations around the area. For example my family belongs to OKM pool in Burke and my two daughters are at the pool almost everyday. Two of the executive board members are alcoholic’s. One is the vice president and the other is the operations manager who happens to be husband and wife. These two members are at the pool every day and night drinking in front of our children, actually promoting drinking. I’ve been there a couple of times when the swim team rep has been drinking with them working with 6-8 year olds on the team; I’ve seen them get loud and rude in front of our children. The sad part is that the rest of the board does not want to do anything about this behavior. I have had several talks with my daughters and explained the effects of drinking and what it does to you and others around you, but unfortunately the kids that hang out at the pool see this type of behavior and believes it is ok. Here you have a pool that should be a safe and fun environment for our children and you have a handful of adults leading them in the wrong direction. So don’t put all the blame on the kids.

Alcohol played no part in this stabbing. Also, you didn't use your name when you posted a comment, why is that? Did you not understand the directions? Are you embarrassed? Are you scared someone will attack and stab you? Although I do not agree with you I agree with your points, for example, lack of education in this area. Obviously "alcoholics" is a plural noun, however you used it as a possesive noun, which is grammatically incorrect. Today there was a shooting behind Lake Braddock, which is how i stumbled upon this page. If only the ignorant and violent Hispanic immigrants and the overpopulated negros would leave Burke the world would be a better place.

I choose not to use my name also. There are many valid reasons to not want your name on a public internet post.
I am an alumnus who is on the internet looking up my hometown (Burke) and my old school.
I was very disappointed to see this discourse, but most especially your very personal and decidedly nasty attack.
It is bad enough to look up my school after 17 years and find this violence has occurred, but it is not surprising after reading these last two posts.
What has happened to the place?
Please try to do us proud and take the high road next time.

matt s-w you are a rascist and with your ingnorance toward other races you offend them. By offending them you bring anger and with anger only comes violence. It is because of people like you with your ignorance, anger, and hate for other who are different that bring violence to schools and neighborhoods. If there is no one person to blame or specific group. If anyone or anything must be blamed it is the ones that bring up hate for others. Because hate is an uncontrollabe plague that spreads like wild fire and Matt you carry this plague and you are one of the many that spread this plague.
I was there during the time of the incident, I also know who was involved and why all this happened.
Kids grow up to be what there surrounded by and these kids that got stabbed grew up around jealous-angry kids and they became that. I know this cause my ex-girlfriend went out with one of the guys that got stabbed in the back and in the arm. I saw the scars in person as well.
