    Again, though, why the necessity to try to make it seem like this is only a US problem? It's not and detracts from the victim in this case. Witness.

    With all due respect and imo, I do not see a single post that says or implies that this is only a US problem.

    My take away, again fwiw, is that this should not be happening in the US. Land of the free. Home of the brave.

    I can see why the conversation came to a halt - to continue would risk this becoming a political topic for many - in the US. The topic is not political - it's about people. However, it has been made a political topic in the US by recent and long term views of so-called leaders. That is where the confusion comes in.

    Why is all others want to know. Jmo.

    Edited because I quoted wrong post(s)


    I'll agree to disagree. I don't think the intention was anything but critical. In any case, I've asked for and not received clarification, so it's up to interpretation. Sometimes there's more background to something than appears on the surface. I always appreciate your posts, @Woodland :)

    Of course there is criticism - there was no call for this to happen, to this student, in the US or anywhere else. But it did happen in the US - land of ...

    Imo, clarification would have caused the thread to devolve into something it should not.

    Cheers!

    This is not what "taking a knee" is about.

    In emergency situations, students must be able to trust the adults in their lives to make good calls and keep them safe. This poor young person now knows that no one will have their back when an emergency happens. Just so wrong and so sad.
