Kid has issues. Probably originating from home life. Sadly another 12 year old with a arrest record.

I could never be a teacher. If some 12 year old kid hit me, I'd kick his sorry #SS across the island.

And you would be immediately fired and arrested. Unless you have been there, you don’t know, and would likely be surprised, at how many disruptive, feral, and even violent kids there are in public middle and high schools; yet the teachers are blamed for the teenage punks’ poor attendance and academic performance and the dysfunctional families that produced them never mentioned.

The solution to improving the public schools is to find alternatives for the kids that don't want to be there. But in this liberal state, public policy is dictated by our leaders caving in to loud, unreasonable, and blinded parents.

Sorry I don't buy that - I believe that the parents are 100% to blame for poor attendance, performance and disruptive behavior. This is why I am always in favor of naming the parents in news articles when their children commit violent acts.
