I guess racism is alive and well still. What in the world would someone say something that is so disgusting and degrading. Perhaps telling the world how very ignorant you really are is fun, but it really is not fun just intolorable.

Well...let me break it down for you..."DISGUSTED"

In the normal world...adults do not go into high schools, especially in another town and make disturbances..

Schools are places...let me throw out this racist and horrible idea...idiotic idea...um...for learning...perhaps?

What I find intolerable is that this animal...and I don't care if this person is pink...went to this high school and injury resulted right before Thanksgiving vacation...

Let me throw out another idea...there was retribution for something involved and this 38 year old child who obviously was not at work like the rest of us...decided to go to a high school and to interrupt the day with her antics...drama- whatever- but this thing took ownership and decided to interrupt the education of a number of kids....

OUR CHILDREN SHOULD BE SAFE AT SCHOOL- Don't want racism? Don't create the hype with idiotic actions...

I notice that you did not include all black people. Maybe black people from Hartford, will respond to your statement. Many good black people have come from Hartford, and served in all our major wars. The punks found roaming the Hartford streets today, are of a different breed. No matter what color the person is, if its in them to do wrong, they will do wrong.

You are racist liar and your breath stinks...formulating an opinion from a two paragraph statement in the Courant doesn't even come close to justification for your tirade and cloaked (not very well) comments directed at - who?- Black people, in general is the sad part.

I think I am missing something here. There are 4 posts before mine and a short article with very, very little information about a disturbance in a Windsor Locks school. The article does not mention anything about the race of the people involved, but the 4 comments seem to imply Ms. Howard is colored. What difference does her race have to do with the offense?

Let's get down to what really happened and what the Courant was to lazy to report.

Four girls were involved along with one of the girl's mother (Ms.Howard). The evening before three of the girl's began threatening Ms. Howard's daughter stating they were going to "take care of her" the next day. All four students are bussed to Windsor Locks High from Hartford. Ms. Howard's daughter did not want to take the bus this morning for obvious reasons and Ms. Howard brought her to school. When they arrived at the school and Ms.Howard's daughter entered she was confronted by the three girls. Ms. Howard then entered the school. Members of the administration attempted to defuse the situation and Ms.Howard was heard to exclaim "let them fight so we can get this over with". The situation escalated to the point a shoving match began and Ms.Howard cut one of the students with her ring and two teachers who attempted to intervene were struck (a guidance councelor and a phys ed teacher). The WLPD officer assigned to the school finally took control of the situation and placed Ms. Howard under arrest and the student who was cut was sent to the hospital.

Why the Courant can't seem to do any real reporting and find out what the stories are is beyond me. They seem to feel that we as readers should accept that reprinting a media handout from the police dept. is news.

The Loons are migrating from their hobbled nest to newer, yet undisturbed feeding grounds, I see!

Sooner or later, Hartford will run out of resources to maintain their disorderly populations within the city limits and they'll go forth and seek easy marks on unsuspecting citizens of neighboring towns. Think it;s been bad so far? WAIT until the economy squeezes out the entitlement programs and the larcenies and robberies will incrase ten fold.......

wait, wait! remember? The African American educator who was on the hot seat as late (can't recall her name) stated that African American's (in general) were more "Ramunctious" as learners. Remeber that?

Perhaps we have it all WRONG! This fine, upstanding and misunderstood lady was expressing her exhuberance for the educational system and simply got carried away! Much like a devote person might do in providing a "testimonial" at church and resulting - to our dismay - speaking in "tongues".

That's it! It was a religious, educational experience so unjustly categorized by white dominance that it was incorrectly viewed as a racial crime. We should have all KNOWN better than that. How could we have been so mistaken. Geeez!

Colored? Like a page from a Crayola Coloring book? All bright and shiney? Full of pigment and varying tones of the color wheel?

Funny - I can't picture a "colored person"....... Let's look that up under archaic vocabulary of the late 19th and early 20th century as we continue to browse the internet on ur 21st century computers.......

Elitist?- perhaps. Concerned?- Absolutely! Racist - highly debatable! I think, should the bias be revealed, it has more to do with the person living in Hartford than what race they are.

As we know, Hartford is a horribly failed city that has been taken over by crime and criminals and is being "led" (used very loosely!) By a known criminal element and gang affiliated extortionist.

Feel better now? Understand the bias? See the difference or would you care to continue to throw out the race card when all statistical evidence points to a complete and utter failure - and breakdown of civilization (education, policing, political, spiritual, moral, etc...) of the city from Hell - Hartford?

Dear Rising Star Pinhead-
As I stated "I don't care if they are pink"..because I knew that someone like you would play the race card..Like cards? Go to the casino...As a kind reader filled in the story, if all points are on par, were right.
They have interventions in schools- and if I were to send my kid to your district, I would not, especially when my kids are bussed at taxpayer expense, create a disturbance..I do not care if this was a Gucci laden housewife from Farmington- it was disgusting....vile
Go protect your Mayor-Thank God your children in that city are trying to stop the crime-by marching-they are the only stars

When Hartford was 90% White, there were few incidents like this. Now that it's only 15% White, crime and lawlessness are widespread. See the connection?

Migration :
The word “colored” is perfectly acceptable, it is the “C” in NAACP. You look that up. www.naacp.org

what went on :
Thank you for filling in the many blanks. Sounds like a cat fight to me. If these kids really wanted to hurt each other they would have fought somewhere other than school where they had to have known they could not get far.- Too much hype over nothing. This poorly written article must have been a space filler.

WL is a trash town. I am surprised they didn't arrest any of the faculty who have been robbing a salary from the town.

Do the teachers at that school still let the students take the teachers car to get lunch at McDonalds?

I knew of one teacher there who showed a wrestlemania tape to his history class, cuzhe was hungover.

Are you from Windsor Locks? What gives you the right to say Windsor Locks is a "Trash Town"? I've lived there for 46 years and do not consider it a "Trash Town" ! I graduated from WLHS, have a very successful career, my children will be graduating from WLHS, and I have NEVER, EVER had to question the teaching ablity of one of their teachers in all their years of school there. Some mother from another town, has to go into the school, start crape, stick her nose in where it doesn't belong and all of a sudden Windsor Locks is this big horrible town. Bottom line is kids will take care of things between themselves and parents should just stay out of it, or if they are that concerned contact the school, they can't be coming into the school, disturbing the day, putting other kids and people at risk (mine was almost punched in the face). It just pisses me off...

Don't all of the "experts" tell us that we should engage in activities with our children? Aren't we being hard on a woman who was just trying to spend some "quality time" with her daughter while engaged in a parent-child activity?

Migration & Lloyd - I believe the proper term is "persons of color." I'll give you some examples..........persons of burnt umber..........persons of Prussian blue.
