      BO DIDDLEY..I don’t get your comment at all..I have a 13 year old daughter and an 18 year old son and both of my children have always been in public schools and made good grades and neither of them have ever been in trouble with the law. My husband and I had our son at a very young age and he just graduated high school as an early graduate. I don’t think what she did has anything at all to do with being in public schools. It could be many things. Parents, but not always, as many children that are raised in good homes get into trouble. Could be the people she chose to hang around, but that’s not always true either or it could just be that she made a bad choice. No matter what it is I just pray that she will inform the police as to who committed this crime with her and that she will learn from this. If not, she will be into trouble again and again. Also pray for the victim in this case as I cannot imagine being assaulted in my own home or anywhere else for that matter..Very scary..

        According to FBI stats, children who attend public/government schools go on to commit more crimes on a percentage basis. They also get pregnant more often before they graduate, like you did.

        The next time I need advice on something, I will make sure to ask you since you know it all. Those who seem to always jump to conclusions and assume everything are called Idiots, like you are!!

        How is my comment idiotic? Is it because I don’t like religion and you do? I know plenty of people that went to religious private schools and still ended up getting in trouble after graduating. Yeah, statistics show otherwise. However, I rather not send my child to a school that bases it’s creed around an 2000+ year old philosophy that doesn’t promote progressiveness.

        If you must know, yes I went to public school. I actually didn’t hang around negative crowds all through public school. I made decent grades as well 3.0 to be exact after graduation. Also, proud to say I don’t have a mark on my criminal record, a job I’m happy with, and a degree I’m pursuing. I even grew up a hardcore christian. However, when you open your mind, the truth becomes easier to see. Maybe that’s something a lot of narrow-minded folks here in NC and on this site need to consider.

    Lock her up for the max. time. She’s no good. These thugs breaking into homes deserve to be shot. Arm yourself, target practice and don’t be a sitting duck.

    Well, she just ruined her educational career. Almost as if she didn’t care about school in the first place.
