How did you come up with that conclusion? If someone gets into a fight as a kid...does that mean they will become a drug addict or homeless?? What's the logic in your way of thinking?

I agree w/ Nalo Girl that Big Okole is illogical. Actually his name should be "Big Okole-Hole". Because somone is aggressive or has poor anger-management skills, desn't mean they'll end up as drug-addicts or homeless. There's no connection at all. I'm just disappointed that the acts of a few individuals can reflect badly on a whole geographic area.

nothing will happen to any of the fighting fellows.....they will circulate around the judicial system long enough to feed lawyers, judges, bailiffs, sherrifs, secretaries, court reporters, etc., etc. .....the elementary charter-school assault boy will be feeding shrinks, counselors and therapists for some time to come. and in the end.....nothing gets solved.

When I was growing up in Boston we'd have more fights than this just on the bus ride to school. Must be a slow news day for East Honolulu readers.

Yup Waianae kids are taught at a young age to disrespect authority ,,, not on purpose but through the freedom due to lack of supervision from adults.

after all it is the wild wild west

Big Okole from VA needs to wake up! Just because a kid gets into a fight in school doesn't mean they'll be drug addicts or homeless. If you had good grades & own a home now your still pretty dumb for having this kind of logic.

If its something good about the westside, you can be sure its not going to make the news. Slightest little thing "negative", you can be sure it will be printed.

Out here there are many, many good people but you don,t hear about that. Please don't judge us by the actions of a "few".

As a retired teacher from Hawaii I can assure you NOTHING will happen to the student!! Maybe the teacher will get suspended, or maybe even the mother will sue the system. Theres no Aloha in Hawaii anymore!!!

I find it amazing that sooo many people have nothing nice to say while reading a semi-true story. I also find it interesting how no one manages to write up the positive actions of the schools on the Waianae coast, but manage to get every negative detail and put it on the front page!! It seems to me that the newspaper's priorities are a little mixed up.

Instead of downing the youth, whether they're from Waianae or not, seems we should be praising and promoting the positive things to evoke change.

I can't belive that people judge us on what they here about Waianae. Waianae is a beautiful place. Just because theres a few blow outs and more things happen down that end doesn't mean that it's a bad place or the people there is bad. The same things that happen in Waianae happen around the Hawaii State. It hurts when I hear people talk down about us Waianae people.
Also I think what had happen at Kamaile and Waianae High is minor compare to what use to happen when I was going to school. Not saying that what happen is ok. I'm pretty sure that the kids will get punished for what they had done. People you should think first before you say anything about the West Side.

Hm, I didn't get enough info from the article. I'll my daughter about it.

I too think more light needs to be shed on the positive things that are happening. Such publicity could only spur on more positive actions and attitudes

I live out here, close to these affected schools and this fighting ha not been reported by the news until an incident occurs in an elementary school. The last month or so has seen lots of fights between intermediate students from waianae and nanakuli, all off campus. When the police finally show up, they do nothing except run the kids off. Trouble is, a lot of younger children observe these fights, see and hear all the bragging, talk stink, egging on and observe that this must be the way to solve problems.
It's a shame that children learn by example, usually from their peers.
So now, everyone involved got publicity an in their immature minds, "that's cool."
