Dorothy Siegel’s argument in the essay “What Is Behind the Growth of Violence on College Campuses?” is persuasive. Siegel persuades the reader by presenting her points and validating them with facts and statistics. One of the strongest aspects of the argument is that contrary to popular belief, students are committing a majority of the crimes that take place on college campuses; the students “themselves may become the assailants”, not persons from outside of the campus. She further supported this by pointing out that students tend to know their attackers. Another strong aspect of her argument is that campus violence is due to substance abuse.
In the article “School Violence Beyond Columbine: A Complex Problem in Need of an Interdisciplinary Analysis” by Stuart Henry, he makes the argument that perpetrators of school violence typically have “previously been the victim of violence over time, and the extent of the extreme violent event is the outcome of the effects of reciprocal victimization at multiple levels rather than at just one. ”(Henry p. 1256) I will explain what the above statement means by discussing the Individual level, the Group level, and the Institutional/ Organizational level where victims experience the effects of the violence. With each level, I can express examples of student victimization and demonstrate how “it is important to identify a wide range of violence at different levels of society that affect the school and see how these are reciprocally interrelated in the school setting as a process over time”. (Henry p. 1261)

As we humans dissect the wild world, with bridges, roads, power lines, visible and invisible nation divides, jet contrails, hundreds of bear cubs from their mothers as Florida murdered over 300 Black Bears, mountains from their tops, forest from their trees. As we dismember ourselves with gated communities, cell phones, political parties, sports teams, my new daughter’s childhood with rape, we become less and less connected with the planet we depend on every second of every minute, of everyday for our very survival. Until we stand up and hold our ground against the likes of professional fraggers, like Coulter, Limbaugh, Trump, Cheney, Rove and many more, the ametuer fragging school shooters, the planet might just be better off if we hurry
Why are peer mediators more effective in solving conflicts between high school/primary school students than school counselors? Conflict is as old as humanity itself. In the words of Sigmund Freud: “Inevitable By-product of civilization because the goals and needs of individuals often clash with the goals and needs of their fellow human beings. ”(Aronson et al, 2007) Since education and schooling are crucial parts of modern civilization, it is natural that conflicts would occur in schools as well.
The horrific stories that have been all over every news channel for the past few months about school shootings are hard to watch, but in reality less than two percent of homicides of youth between the ages of five and eighteen happen at school. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), youth violence is the intentional use of physical force or power against another person, group, or community, likely to cause physical or psychological harm. Although cases of youth violence have dropped since 1992, youth violence is still the third leading cause of death of youth ages fifteen to twenty-four, and is a major problem in the United States.

The woman’s face was bloody; she cried for help, and at that time, all I could do was yell for my mother from the comfort of my home. This was a scene I never that I’d have to witness in front of my house. Her body crumpled to the ground, I remember before this, she had staggered by my house as me and my sister were playing and asked to use our house phone. Of course, at that time, my sisters and I hysterically asked our mother phone if she could use the phone, she said yes. The woman looked like she was in rush as she punched in the numbers, but I don’t remember if there was ever a response.
'Discuss and Evaluate Possible Factors That Might Contribute Towards Youth Violence' Introduction There are many various theories explaining why certain individuals may engage in violence, some focus on the individual and biological or psychological disorders they may have, while others focus on environmental factors such as poverty or social inequality.

A Cloud of Oppression Experiencing the torment of a label is difficult, especially if it is given to your whole family. In the memoir Red Scarf Girl, set in the time of the Cultural Revolution, being within the upper middle class was frowned upon and proletarians were seen as the leaders of society. The label of black class status tainted the bourgeoisie, including the Jiang family, with torture, ridicule, and incrimination by others influenced by the governmentally coercive ways of Communism.
