Every day, millions of teenagers are forced to return to these prisons. To have the eye of Big Brother watch over them like
hawks, stripping every ounce of privacy from them. Everything and everyone is subject to being searched, without a warrant,
just because they look like they might be a person who could possibly be a "threat" to society. People being forced to use
clear book bags so school officials can see if you have a bomb packed a way. Even worse, some schools have banned the
things altogether, out of fear that somebody will bring in a bomb, or a gun, and wreak havoc.
Video games and movies are blamed. Has anybody ever stopped to think for a second about that. Millions of people play
violent video games. Millions of people watch violent movies. If they truly caused violent behavior, then there would be nobody
left on this planet. The manufacturers of guns are blamed, and then they get sued when somebody kills another. Guns really do
kill people, but they can only do it when there is some mentally disturbed individual in control of it.
So, what is the solution to the problem? Should we take away guns? That won't work. If the people are already breaking laws,
do you think that they will obey a law that says, "You can't have a gun anymore?" Of course not. Banning violent video games.
Oh yeah, there we go. Play Solitaire for the rest of your life. Ban violent movies. Censorship. Sounds like we're turning into Nazi
Germany. Books are banned in libraries because it might be offensive to some.
People get made fun of, each and every day, just for being a bit different from others. Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words cause mental anguish. Instead of the schools harassing the ones who have been harassed by their peers, why not
put the smack down on the "happy, shiney" people who are out smoking weed, getting drunk every night, going around, just
having sex with whomever they feel like, all the time, and leave the fragile outsiders on their own. They are generally kind
people, but after ten years of being made fun of every single day, having nobody to turn to, having few, if any friends, wouldn't
you be a bit bitter? It isn't the outsider's fault. The ones to blame are the incompassionate popular people.
Take down your cameras. Keep your doors open. Don't worry about what's in everybody's back packs. If somebody is going to
be determined enough to bring a gun to school, there is not anything that can be done to stop them, other than having two
armed guards per student and faculty member, in each and every school, all around the world.
People have a right to be free. This is one of the founding principles this great nation was founded on. Where is the freedom for
the youth of America? Cameras, thick, locked doors everywhere, uniforms, everything controlled. That really sounds like prison.
You know, prisoners have more freedom, actually.
Will anybody stand up and voice their opinion? I would say, probably not. Everybody is so apathetic, everybody is so
incompassionate, just wanting what's the quick fix to a little happiness, not looking at the future. Come on people, stand up for
yourselves. Be free.
