These students need to get back to class and try to listen to their teachers (that is a lot easier than trying to remove corruption from a foreign nation). These students need to empower themselves through education. It is there that these pathetic excuses for human beings can hopefully learn integrity, honesty, and morals (instead of disrespecting their teachers, abusing them with profanity on a daily basis, and being concerned with getting laid and finding the next high). Maybe, just maybe if they get educated they can go and individually make a difference. Protesting corruption, please! These students are the corruption!

Please don't take this in a rude way, but..... how many of these high school seniors are here legally? From what I know of Canutillo, only about 1% of the students actually make it to college, from that percentage only about another 10% actually make it through college. A bunch of these students will end up being deadbeats, heck, I bet that over 50% of them are already moms and dads, living off my taxes. nufd said.....
Almost none. The little fools will protest over here but they won't do a damned thing for their city. Protests are just another good excuse to get out of class. These kids aren't exactly doing wonders on SAT tests.

That is a nice gesture and I dont want to take anything away from the students and their good intentions. However, the violence in Juarez needs to be addressed by people in Juarez to their government and to the ones causing the violence. I am affected too by the violence like so many others living here in El Paso but it is the people of Mexico and in Juarez who need to take a stand and not have somebody else do it for them.

<quoted text>good point.. we don't need people driving under the influence. But what evidence do you have to say that driving under the influence of illegal drugs has caused any significant number of crashes. With 52 percent of Americans having admitted to using an illegal drug its evident they're driving under the influence of drugs. Ever heard of a coke user or stoned driver killing anyone?
Not likely.. It's just the nature of alcohol. Even if drugs were legalized.. there would still be laws against driving under the influence.
You must understand that keeping drugs illegal makes it impossible for addicts to get help.
You must understand that keeping drugs illegal makes drug dealers rich. They have the means to buy guns, hire hit men, and wreak havoc on our streets. That's a greater hazard to all communities.
KEEping drugs illegal means drug dealers have complete control of drugs. That means on quality control. Prohibition is the reason drug dealers introduced previously unknown drugs before the drug war was started. Crack and meth were invented by illegal dealers under drug prohibition.
End the drug war...
What evidence do you have that this won't increase if drugs are legal? If you believe that people will "do drugs" in moderation, then believe in Santa Claus and Easter Bunny. Alcohol is drug and no different from cocaine, meths, etc.. A coke user driving? Sure, haven't you?

Get help? Ever heard of "rehabs"? Why do you think rehabs exist? Apparently you haven't learn anything either. Addicts have there problems, let them to deal with it. If they said "no to drugs", we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Easy way to control dealers/cartels is to execute them. Less animals to worry about.

The reality is that people that want to make drugs legal are future users. Get over it!

I understand completely so save yourself your comments and do your homework next time.

I bet most of these students ARE FROM JUAREZ and protesting HERE? WHY, not stay in their own country instead of running from the problem STAY AND FIGHT, IT'S YOUR COUNTRY!! You run across the border instead of fighting IN THEIR CITY OF JUAREZ AND IF THEY DIE, well they died for a good cause and will have died HONORABLY FOR THEIR COUNTRY, don't use the US as a shield. GO AND FIGHT TO FREE YOUR COUNTRY FROM THE GRIP OF THE CARTELS!! Look at Egypt those are admirable people. You young people need to stand up to YOUR PRESIDENT, if he can't do the job MAKE HIM RESIGN!! You can't fight your war with your feet on the neighboring country, thats like DOING NOTHING, AND RUNNING FROM THE PROBLEM!!
