Kids don't realize that once something is posted on You Tube it is out there forever, there is no taking it off of there. Jobs, colleges, etc. now search You Tube, MySpace, etc. on applicants.

Such a shame

YES, BULLIES IN SCHOOL ARE SO VERY DISRUPTIVE, THE ADULT TEACHERS SHOULD GET TO THE ROOT OF YHE PROBLEM & TAKE ACTION ON THE BULLY, NOT THE KID THAT FIGHTS BACK.
TOMMY, TELL YOUR PARENTS & INFORM THE TEACHER WHEN YOU ARE BEING BULLIED IN SCHOOL. I AM SO SORRY THAT YOU WERE PUNISHED FOR DEFENDING YOURSELF. STAY STRONG !!

thanks Wendie. he wasnt really being a bully. we just had an issue and he wanted to fight. i would not have fought him if he had not swung on me first tho. my mom was mad when i got suspended.

me an the other guy both got kikd out of school for 30 days. it waz a pretty nasty fight. but like i say it waznt my fault.

thanks for being nice about it an not blamin me.

<quoted text>I understand you have to defend yourself. Next time grab any adult, a teacher, etc. and get THEM in trouble not you.
well i see what ur sayin. but in the situation gettin a teacher would have been dumb. i meen me an the other guy had an issue between us that was just between us u know. but ur rite about not gettin in trouble. i should have told him that i would fight him after school off the grounds.

<quoted text>Um - NO! No more fighting! Getting a teacher would not be dumb and you could do it anonymously. Skip the fighting altogether. Really. You don't need someone messing up that cute face! Really - it leads to nowhere. AND what happens when they toss your butt out of school permanently? Can you imagine what your parents will go throught then? Be the bigger person here. It will pay off, trust me.
well thanks for sayin im cute. lol. i admit i had to get a couple of stitches in my bottom lip but i messd him up worse. but u know some things guys just have to settle between themselves. like i said i didnt start it. he wants to fight me again. hes just mad cuz he lost the fight at school. but we are gonna fight someplace away from school where nobody is around.

ur nice tho. u a teacher?

I suppose boys will be boys. OMG - plese stop the fighting. Find another way. What about a different school? BTW - how is it that you are able to write now? Are you suspended? No, not a teacher, a nurse.
yah im suspended. i came on this site cuz i thought it waz for teens to talk. lol. yah. im suspended. where are u a nurse? at a hospital? or at school? i had to go to the nurse at our school after the fight. they sent the other guy to the emer room so we wouldnt both be in the nurses office at the same time. she was pretty nice. i guess u have to be pretty nice to be a nurse. no a diffrent school would not help. me an the other guy live in the same neighborhood and we hate each other now so we will still fight. like i said hes still mad. and im not gonna back down from him an hes not gonna back down either. do u have any kids my age? do they ever get in fights?

Two boys - one your age - no fights thank God so far. But I give them the same advice as I gove you. You seem very nice as well. I work in a hospital and have personally seen the effects (permanent) of people thwat fight. You know these things can escalate into much more and that is why it is best to nip it in the bud. I know no one likes to back down but someone needs to be more responsible and it should be you. You seem smart and very nice and that is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of strength and intelligence.
well ur nice too. but dont worry about nobody gettin hurt bad. i meen when we fight in my nayborhood its just with fists we dont pull blades or nutthin like that. in that fight i had in school my bottom lip got cut open when that other guy threw this one punch cuz he wears a ring. and i made his nose bleed but i didnt break it. the only other thing was he had one eye that was swole up. so like i say it waznt like we waz gonna hurt each other bad. its nice of u to worry tho. ur like my mom. except she waz pretty mad when she came to school to get me. lol

<quoted text>I'll bet she was. I am sure she has enough on her plate than to worry about you getting hurt or kicked out of school. Don't you want to go to college? Isn't there an after school ativity there to keep you from these weirdos? Sports, art, etc?
not really. i hate the guyz who r into sports. they are mostly rednecks. and the cheerleaders r all stuck up. i hate that whole crowd. they look at me like im nothin cuase i dont live in a big house or have cloths that cost a thousand bucks. lol. u know me an my mom live in a trailer park and the kids who know that put me down. u know what happend one day? i was walkin down the hall an these 2 cheerleaders was talkin by their locker and i could tell they waz talkin about me. an just as I walkd by them i heard one of the cheerleaders say to the other one oh yeah hes cute but hes trailer park trash. i was gonna say somethin back but i didnt. i got some friends i hang with tho. i had a girfriend but she got mad when i got suspended an broke up with me. hey my mom is 34. how old r u?

<quoted text>OMG - my heart breaks for you. I cannot stand losers who feel they are above others. Feel sorry for them, you never know what horrible circumstances may be happening in their own lives behind closed doors. No one's life is perfect. Everyone has pain. It does not matter at all where you came from. It also does not predict where you will go in life. Sometimes those who have had struggles early on are the ones who go on to the greatest successes. Truly. Humble beginnings create appreciation in life. Think of the good things that DO exist in your life right now. I know you can think of a few. The best way out is through an education. Ignore the stupidity of the comments around you. I had the same humble beginnings myself growing up so I completely understand and I also know there is a way out. You need to find and outlet. Mine was writing. Do you have an interest in something?
P.S. Those people who are laughing now are the ones that are creating bad Karma. I am sure you have heard "what foes around, come's around". That means what you put into this world is what you can get out of it. Make positive deposits.
well ur pretty nice i can tell. i know what ur sayin. i would not hang with those cheerleaders even if they wanted to. i meen they think just because they look good an have good cloths they r better than me. i stick with the peeps who live around me. like my freinds i hang with. and my ex g/f who lives a couple of streets away even tho she dont talk to me no more. im goin with this new girl name Kandi now but my mom dont like her. so now im arguin with my mom a lot. does ur son have a g/f? an do u get along with her?

<quoted text>Well, thank you. No girlfriend at the present for him. Why does she not like her? She may have a decent reason.
well my mom says Kandi is too young for me and she blames her for me gettin suspended cuz she says i waz fightin over her. but i dont think its that way. see Kandi waz that other guys g/f an she came over to my locker an started talkin to me an her b/f got mad an came over an started talkin shit to me an thats y me an him got in the fight. see thats also y my g/f broke up with me cuz some of the kids who seen me an Shawn fightin told my g/f that we waz fightin over Kandi. anyway after the fight Kandi broke up with Shawn an now me an her r together but my mom dont like her.

It's truly lack of parent involvement! If parents paid more attention to what their kids are doing and who they're talking to we would have less violence. Check their phones, myspace accounts, emails. They can live their own life when they turn 18 UNTIL THEN...CHECK UP on them and find out what they're doing. If they get upset....OH WELLLL...that's life right!! It will keep them safe and minimize the b.s. Enough of the violence already!! Now these kids will have a record and that poor girl! What is wrong with people???? PARENTS TALK TO YOUR KIDS!! ASK THEM ABOUT THEIR DAY AND HOW SCHOOL'S GOING!! HUG them and tell them you love them! BE involved!! It doesn't take much to be involved in your child's life. They need guidance and that's what our job is as parents! If we don't help them now, the system will and their lost after that!! God help us all!!
