Send in the Troops -- Assign a Reporter to Cover Localities!

May 7, 2007 Full story:
Local News: Why do reporters wait to be notified of what's happening around the area? Much of what happens locally ... stays local! Sensationalism has taken over what's really important. New restaurants and other businesses open, as well as other newsworthy projects, but no one ever knows about it. News seems to be going opposite the time-proven procedures of research, verify! Many stories I've read are so far from the truth that even I didn't recognize them.

What ever happened to the assigned 'beat'? The facts, M'am ... just the facts: You can skip the fluffy stuff, please. Full Story

I am calling for an investigation of the Niles Middle School in particular. I am receiving reports about "BALL TAPPING" Ball tapping is when a student walks up to another student and then punches them in the private area. Also students are subject to food being thrown at them a lunch, and many other embarrasing incidents in the school. My wife has spoken several times to the school and is promised that it will be dealt with.. but the problem continues!!!! My children should not have to live in FEAR when going to school! Where are the teachers when all this is happening????? They have removed all forms of disipline from the school and the children now rule the schools. No displine, No order!!!!
I am personally going to the school and talking to the staff. This is an on going problem that I will not stand by and allow to happen to my children. I teach my children to respect authority, and other students.. I am doing my part at home! The schools are turning their heads and allowing this unexceptable behavior to go on!!!! My children should not have to live in Fear!!!! I tell my children to report this bad behavior and they have! But NOTHING is being done about it. I teach them not to take the law into their own hands... but NOTHING is being done to protect them.. They are afraid to stick up for themselves because they will get into trouble by the teachers (for defending themselves). It has to stop!!! Imagine going to work everyday and living in fear of being hurt, going to the boss and yet the problem continues???? Then you stick up for yourself (self defence) and you are protraied as a loose cannon.
It has to stop and it has to stop now!!!!
BE a man or woman and stick up for these kids!!!!! Quit turning your heads and bring disipline back in our schools.. Start teaching the children about honor and respect along with math. We citizens have to put up with God and prayer being removed from the schools? Can you not see the devistation this is causing??? How many children have to suffer before you wake up??? How many children have suffered already because of this mentality? When you take away disipline you encourage lawlessness.
GODDAMMIT
