      Maybe that girl should start her own self defense class. I certainly would go. I laugh every time, I think about how she made them turn and run, run, run for hours. It is hysterical. She is my hero. Definitely she needs to market her publicity. Call Dr Phill, Opra, the talk shows. There is money to be had. Luv ya wish you well

      if one of these was my child, I would be on here commenting about him or her. About what an idiot they are. I would hope they also got penalized severely. Yes, I would be embarrassed if it was my child, but then I would probably wish I had disciplined him more. That is part of the problem, undisciplined parents, or should I say people who had a child in most of these cases, are very undisciplined themselves. and yet their offspring are good kids, they just made a bad decision. BE YOUR CHILD'S FRIEND, GAIN THEIR TRUST AND RAISE THEM WITH SOME RESPECT FOR THEMSELVES AND OTHERS!
