According to our local Patch, the high schoolers over at Perry Hall High School are becoming truculent. It seems that because school policy forbids kids from hooving on their Marlboro Lights on school property, they stand on the property of other people and get their nico-teen fixes.
I'm sure that if all they did was stand on the lawn, enjoy a leisurely cigarette and move on quietly, there would be no problem.
But that wouldn't be like most teenagers you know, would it?
So the other day, the lady who lives at the house that the students have turned into a smoking area came out and confronted them over it, only to be smacked in the face by a female student, whose parents must be awfully proud of her today.

I like the part that says that the school has made many announcements urging the kids to behave. They couldn't have really thought that was worth the effort, could they?
I will keep an eye on this case, since I have the time now to spend on such things. Maybe I'll even go to District Court and see the young lady stand trial. I would hope to see her parents apologize to Ms Levin.
I would hope for that. At the very least, we have to wonder how this whole thing came to blows.
What is wrong with people that they can't leave each other, and each other's property, alone?
