    Give me a break. Let me give you the 411 on this situation. This kid's brother was charged with stopping traffic and waving a .22 pistol at passing cars on Greenville Boulevard after Christmas last year. His other brother was killed in a single vehicle accident a year or so before. Yeah, I suppose you liberals think the schools or society failed all 3 of them? What about personal responsibility? What about parenting, discipline? What about some serious prison time?

    Parents are failing their on children. The teachers cannot do everything. Raise your children at home and, you cannot start when they get old. There is a lost generation because of the lack of parent support.Parents support your children, spend time with them, and let them know that they are loved and do not expect the teacher to do everything. Stop working 3 and 4 jobs trying to make ends meet and take care of your responsibility. Do not let the system handle what is yours. Besides what does the school have to do with him calling in a bomb threat. He was probably home alone and bored to death. Blame who needs to be blamed. Teachers have a job to teach and not to enforce disicipline every few minutes. Teach your child about the love of God and at least if they stray they will come back. God is needed more now that ever. Lets just pray that our younger generation wake up and see what they are raising before it is too late.

    I actually know this young fellow, he is not exactly a bad student, just not too interested in educational advancement. This crime may have been bad, but by no means should it be a reflection of the school, or his parents. I do agree that he deserves to be punished for his actions, but not to the extent that the other commentors would like to see.

    To Robert Humberston, Sr. I know what kind of person you are. I am glad this is 2009 in stead of 1909. He should at least get 5 years in prison and work each day breaking rocks or picking up trash along the road.

    The comment made by I Love Jesus: The school is not failing them. So don't blame it on the school. Most of the time they don't want to be in there anyway. It is not the teachers fault for there Mom and Dad not raising them right. And I do agree with the fact that they need Jesus. In fact we all need him more now then ever.

    Why is this even being discussed? DEATH PENALTY, NOW. Him and all his criminal buddies.

    Even though I despise the G'ville Walmart, you can't go around making bomb threats. That's just stupid.

    "The schools are failing them." That has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Since when is it the schools responsibility to raise kids? I thought it was the parents responsibility to raise them and the schools responsibility to teach them curriculum?!? How can the school be held accountable for this anyway? It's not like God is allowed in schools...teachers will get fired for even thinking about bringing God up in a classroom! You can thank your government for that. Don't blame the school system, coming from a teacher's perspective...we are doing the best we can with very little help from some parents. Instead of blaming everyone for this child's mistake you should be praying for him, and praying to bring positive people in his life to help this young man better himself and make better choices.
