Most of the crime comitted in school are done by children who mentally disturbed. They do need attention from parents, teachers and peers or they need some kind of medication to calm them down. Unfortunately they do not have parents to observe their behavior at home. Once they think that they are neglected or abandoned they find a way to make headlines. By doing so, they think they are cool. We do think that schools and home are safe place for everybody. The Columbine, The Virginia Tech and other shootings in school prove us wrong.
