• Lynfield College fight: another excellent reason for not sending children to school

The comments button is at the bottom right of this post.

Would you want to send you children to school in an era where schools are a combat zone and respect for teachers is nil? Yes, there have been school fights as long as we’ve had schools, but events like this were virtually unheard of when I was at high school.

How the children really view the teacher is clear in this video, and I think that he did very well in a situation where he could never prevail and faced a real risk of injury.

Was this a riot? Consider this definition from S87 of the Crimes Act and decide for yourself:

A riot is a group of 6 or more persons who, acting together, are using violence against persons or property to the alarm of persons in the neighbourhood of that group.
