Who needs WHITES to have racial hatred go on in our country?
Blacks and latinos, long big complainers about being discriminated against, hate each other, proving that whites have no proprietary ownership of bigotry or racism.

It's amazing that the school throws up its hands in defeat, robbing ALL students of their educational opportunity, in shutting down the school, rather than coming down hard on the PERPETRATORS of the violence!

The inmates run the asylum. The "authorities" who are supposed to be in charge show themselves to be powerless and spineless. And we wonder why more and more sociopaths keep showing up in society. Well, YOU may wonder. I do not.

Keep the school open and dont let the minority of these idiots wreck it for everyone. When we were kids, a few select bullies were baseball batted and tossed in dumpsters, problem solved!

What we need in Hempstead is a Joe Clark type of principal. Go over the books those that are not their to learn send them away. Far away from the school. Stop with this smack on the hand justice. Clean up this school. Hempstead is not a bad place we just have some bad people Lets get rid of them and the problem. Let the good ones that want to learn enjoy the good days of being in high school.

wow very shocking news! It is a shame for the few students who actually go there to learn and not to eat lunch.

So sad, once a great high school. Now the thugs, and the rest of these animals have ran into the ground. It took 30 years and "Mission Accomplished" Just another place for these useless "Iceholes" to go to occupy their day. And by night time, drive by shootings, car jackings, pushing drugs, robbing the elderly and God only knows who else, home invasions, vandelism, graffiti any other numb skull idea I left out. This is the future coming out this once great place "Hempstead Long Island"
The future tin cup crowd is getting bigger. Where do these kids believe they are going to be in 10 years????? More than likely behind bars.(What are great argument for a military draft) What a sad commentary. A high school not a place to get educated but a place to hang out and settle arguments in a violant manner when someone simply bumps into you by mistake, looks at you the wrong way or steps accidendently on your $150 dollar sneakers. I wonder what high diploma you get for that????
congrats

Someone judged your post "helpful." I think they meant "needs help."
"Princeibels?" "Caining?" Yeah, you know about education.

Or the article quote: "Laria said.'In this day and age, we don't have a racial divide.'"
Yeah right. take a look at the Presidential race to start.
Then look at gang violence trends.

Where are all the teacher bashers today? The ones who insist it is such a plum job? You want your wife working there? How much should she earn? Remember, the teacher/correction officers there aren't allowed to be armed.

Excuse me, but please do not disparage whites. Look around you. Whites have done more to help blacks and latinos than the blacks and latinos have done to help themselves. By the way, have you ever seen one of those protests about Darfur? The crowd is filled with all white people. I've never seen an American black lift 1 finger for Darfur.

Weird! It let me say "b-l-a-c-k-s" one time, but then they edited it out with "****" when I typed it a second time.

Now...maybe people will look differently at the issue of "School Vouchers" and allowing parents to choose where to send their children to school...

Unfortunately, the NY State Teachers Union will crush any ideas like this...not because they care about the children...but because they want to keep sucking the Long Island taxpayers dry...Just think about the millions of taxpayer dollars that have been thrown away in public school districts like Hempstead...

Vote for McCain-Palin...

Expect more of the same if Obama is elected.

And if Obama gets assassinated, You'll all wish you had guns.
