  1. He got caught at…what?

  2. Jacky says:

    Would he have apologized if they were chanting “Assassinate Bush” or “Assassinate McCain”.

    I’m just disappointed to hear children say these things. The influences they have on each other are sometimes stronger than their parenting. I just browsed the article, but I’m curious to know if there was any type of sensitivity training planned for the students or the school so they begin to understand the impact of their words or at least question their decision to follow the crowd.

    An apology was due and would’ve happened no matter what in my opinion.
