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.Not to worry, though... the Toronto School board is wheeling out their big gun... a version of Mr Rogers neighbourhood..
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.
Ward 9 trustee Maria Rodrigues said psychologists and sociologists offered counselling during what she called "a group hug day."Just one question, here Ms. Rodrigues... what sort of atmosphere does a bloody knife fight create?
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.
