Speaking of Disheartening Tiverton Happenings

The behavior is bad enough, but one detail of this story leaves me with a big “huh?”:

Two 17-year-old Tiverton High School students have been charged by police and disciplined by the high school, following two separate incidents in which they allegedly broke into a home, stole cash and other items, urinated on a bed, and then two days later threatened the youth who lived there in violation of a no-contact order. …
The two, accompanied by their parents, turned themselves in Tuesday, May 6, and were charged with breaking and entering, based on confessions, a police spokesman said. Police also said a shoe of one of the two youths matched a shoe print found on the television screen.
The two were arraigned on the breaking and entering charges the next day in Family Court, and a no contact order, prohibiting them from having contact with the victim, was entered.
On Thursday, May 8, however, both youths were charged again for actions against the victim that allegedly took place at school.

Apparently, a couple of days after confessing to this crime, the two were strolling the halls of the high school, enabled to further terrorize their target. Surely a policy change is in order.

Another example of how the powers that be all get freaked out about sex among teenagers, but look the other way when it comes to violence among teenagers. Bullies being allowed to police the schools doesn’t seem to bother them.

And when the victim finally snaps in a teenage hormone-amplified moment of violence and kills these two with his grandfather’s rifle, who’s at fault?
Surely it should be the society that set up the situation into a spiral to begin with.

Why is it always society’s fault and not the criminal’s?
Liberals will be the death of this country.

A couple of junior Mafioso run the school and thug it up, and we’re blaming liberals? Ah, sweet delusion.

Now we hear that the Police Chief wants to remove the police officer assigned to the school. Sounds like a bad idea to me. I signed a petition to hopefully appeal to the Chief to keep him in place.
