Another piece of sh!t that wont ever amount to anything. It's just a matter of time until he starts to commit worse crimes. Once again, a plea bargain has sent a criminal the wrong message. Stop pleaing with these scumbags!

It's time to revisit the public education system including the No Child Left Behind boondoggle. The intention may be noble but the means needs a whole reality check. One part of the solution would be to separate the better students from the underachieving students. The less able or unmotivated students need a different kind of attention than the quicker to learn students. Always deferring to the lower performing students is stealing education from the higher performing students.

Well, it's not right to say a 17 year old is a piece of shit. He's not even an adult yet. For all we know, that same kid could turn his life around (you know that's still available at age 17) and be a positive contribution to this world..Stop being so judgmental and be more optimistic. He's a CHILD....you don't know what he's been through!

Sounds good, but we can't seperate the whole world. We have to all work together to help eachother. Isn't that what America started on?

(unfinished-expected Enter to make new line.) Placing children in classes that match their abilities should begin in the early grades. It should be recognized we are NOT created equal in every respect. We are not all the same size, we don't have the same athletic abilities and frankly we do not all possess the same academic abilities and/or willingness to learn. All we can offer is equal Opportunities. It's for each student to make good use of those opportunities. Educators have to admit we are not educating X-million duplicate Model Z589 students who will all perform the same given the same input. This problem student, age 19-grade 11-is clearly in the wrong place. He's not attending school because he wants an education. Why haven't we learned from the countries that test students at different grades and redirect those who will not do well in school to job training suitable for their abilities? Money-wise by diverting the under performing students into jobs they can do could finance college for willing and able students. While removing the frustration and belligerence factor of the not-getting-it students from the classrooms those former students would be learning a job. After all, being able to support oneself is the purpose of our public education system.

He sounds like he will be a productive member of society. Let's see, he totally had no respect for not just one, but two authority figures! You've got to be kidding me!!
