Another Henry High Student Attacked; Metro Transit Blamed Again
Traditional yellow school buses were phased out at Henry this semester. Only South and Southwest High School students are still taking regular buses, along with all non-high school students in Minneapolis.

Those darn Africans.
Some officials say since the attacks didn't occur on the buses, it's more of a community crime problem.
But others say they're a sign the district has made a dangerous mistake by switching kids to public transportation.
"They said,'Stay still or we'll kill you'," a Henry High School senior told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS on Friday. He filed a police report after he was attacked on Wednesday. Because his assailants haven't been caught, he and his family are still concerned for his safety, and they asked 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS not to identify them.
"They said,'We'll shoot you. Give us your stuff," the teen continued.
"They're just open targets, all of our kids," said the teen's mother.
On Wednesday, the teen was returning home from Henry on Metro Transit Route 19, when he says two young men get off at the same stop and attacked him, two blocks away at 23rd and Russell. "They tried to drag me away," he said. "Then they started punching and kicking me. They ended up stealing my iPod."

Met Council busses are death traps.
Putting kids on them is a sentence of crime against the kids..
Anyone who has taken a ride on an MTC bus understands the risk to ADULTS, kids are easy targets..

Government schools, mass busing, etc. If you want your kids to be brainwashed into the liberal idealology and become pregnant or some drug addict go for the public schools otherwise private or homeschool.... NEVER trust the social engineers known as teachers and whatnot
