    In my days at school we use our fist and feet now these youngsters using weapons. Why??? They are cowards. Nothing like a good old fist and feet fight.

    This is another reason phones should replace school supplies and textbooks. I hear she used a two pointed compass. If it was a phone it would’ve been her prize possession and would not do anything harmful with it. Nowadays, children would find anything to harm one another. But they wouldn’t use their phone to harm someone though and there’s my point.

    This happens because we have adopted a system that caters to such behavior all in the name of progress. The offender is afforded a ‘fair’ trial with no consideration for the victim’s rights. Persons must pay for their wrong doing one way or the other. Perhaps we should seek monetary compensation civily since there seems to be no hope of justice.

      What do you mean by “there seems to be no hope of justice”?

      The girl was arrested and charged for this crime.
