Safe School Week? Seriously?

No... stop... please... yer killin' me.

Gotta confess... I wet myself when I got to the part about having a board sponsored "Group Hug Day...

-- TORONTO -- A fight involving knives and fists outside a high school that left three 17-year-olds injured began after a face-off between rival Asian and black youths, police said yesterday.

Two stabbed students and one who was battered during a fracas Monday on the Brockton Collegiate parking lot behind Bloor Collegiate were released from hospital, Const. Tony Vella said.

The three "are not co-operating" with police, leaving youth bureau detectives without a motive for the battle at the start of this week's Safe School Week.

There have been no arrests.
Not to worry, though... the Toronto School board is wheeling out their big gun... a version of Mr Rogers neighbourhood..
Ward 9 trustee Maria Rodrigues said psychologists and sociologists offered counselling during what she called "a group hug day."

Rodrigues was confident "this was an isolated incident" and the school does not need a full-time cop.

Having a uniformed officer would create "fear and intimidation," since many students are from families who emigrated from countries with dictatorships and distrusted police, she said.
Just one question, here Ms. Rodrigues... what sort of atmosphere does a bloody knife fight create?

Just askin'.

Yeah, and they trusted the government where they came from even less - but I don't see any lefties therefore arguing to decrease the size of the government bloat due to that...

Dumb lefty, doesn't realize that there is a good teaching moment here: the children can learn that in Canada police are generally trustworthy.

"langmann says... there is a good teaching moment here"

apparently maria rodrigues and the toronto district school board are quite happy to reinforce all the widespread preconceptions in the immigrant community about the systemically racist police in canada.

hey... nothing a good 'group hug day' won't solve.

These comments would go right over Ms. Rodrigues' head since she's not the sharpest knife in a drawer full of dull ones.

nah, gotta disagree... this is cultural, not pharmacological.

these kids had been sharing a joint... instead of their fabricated, collective sense of toughness... everybody would have been sittin' around laughin' & eatin' caramel corn.
