Squawk of the Day - August 27, 2012

"Dr. Shumate, those children are not babies anymore. They are robbing stores, stealing, selling drugs, having babies and whatever else they want to do. Do not pit those children against teachers. They need to know they are high schoolers."

For more squawks, pick up a copy of today's Albany Herald.

It is very sad an sicking to see how the lack of respect for society ,their elders,their peers an authority has become the norm of the younger generation. The way a child is raised will reflect how that child acts, an view their surroundings as they grow into adulthood. ...

Without capable knowledgeable leaders, you have chaos. Without discipline, you have anarchy. When you have the absence of both, you have Albany...Stop making excuses for these thugs. Stop the welfare, stop the excuses, stop treating these punks like victims.

Sounds like a Kindertgarden Teacher is pretending to be the Principal of a High School. Plus I'm not gulliable enough to believe her little "Help my Babies" speech was not an indirect attempt to intimidate teachers. I know it is all in how you take it, but the Tribunal didn't have the benefit of the voice inflection and facial expression to derive it's opinion from.

Help my babies is just a drama queen being what she is. If they were babies they would not be in school. Just wait until one of those BIG babies beats up on her at school. She will have an eye opener at high school. See what those babies actually grew up to be. You can tell in 30 minutes who has had good home raising and respect and actually love their parents.

This is not popular, especially among liberals, but 80 percent of what you are is genetic. The 20 percent that can be adjusted needs to be done early in life. By late adolescence or early teens it is to late to change for good or bad. So, if they are stealing things from the head start class room you might as well put them on the prison ships and push them offshore. If you show mercy after that, innocent people are going to suffer.

One of her "babies" did beat up a teacher at Northside, and she didn't want the teacher to pursue charges.

Dear confusedCITIZEN: Maybe they think she is a high school prinicipal. Nonetheless, the students at Northside Elementary School are not babies. They are young children who need to be taught to respect their teachers, etc. along with the three R's. What confuses me is the mindset of the black population in referring to their children as babies from the time of birth until death. They never learn responsibility if they are always treated as babies.
