Many argue that the ALICE response program just exposes students to things situations that will cause unnecessary stress and fear. During the training, students are taught how to handle a situation where they is an armed intruder in their school. Many parents do not want these drills in place because they “don’t want to expose their young children to such discussions of violence” (Blad). The whole idea of a intruder coming into schools and trying to harm them is very scary, especially when your school is going over in detail how to defend yourself in a situation because the training can make it seem much more likely to occur. The training makes this situation seem much more real, which causes students to be scared and worried when they come to school because they may think they will be shot.

The Film we watched in class Tough Guise: Crisis in Masculinity, gave me a better idea of how the world and its peoples see these young men behind the mask showing their true colors. Showing their true colors meaning that they aren’t what they seem to be, as soon as the public has brutalized their mind they often set their plan for revenge. Setting their plan for revenge could include anything from the media giving a bad image of things to the students in schools bullying other children and running these young boys life into retaliation. This movie made me feel as if young boys who aren’t raised right or aren’t socially interacted with the other children are usually the ones to become outgoing into committing bad realities. Social interaction a very big part of any
As humans we always try and seek for the violent, hence why people like watching Football and UFC for the thrill of the roller coaster ride with the ups, downs, and the unknown of what will happen next.

Gossip spreads easily between teenagers and the results are usually dramatic and call for interventions by the parents and education administration if not legal authorities.

This is form of entertainment, that also distracts the person from those daily struggles. Watching a fight from a by standards viewpoint also taps into the adrenaline rush that people enjoy so
We don't say, "This is a very important election, so let's let the kids vote". We don't say, "This is a very important war so let's give our children weapons and send them to fight". So why do we say "this case is different and this kid deserves to be treated as an adult and locked away in a prison"? With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults. Precisely because their brains are still changing.
There are so many outlets that justify violence as a means to reach a solution or get ahead. The success of protagonists often requires the death, torment, or degradation of the antagonist. This simple formula is applicable to almost any popular entertainment, shows and movies like Dexter, Batman, The Hunger Games, and even the most blatant, broadcasted kickboxing matches. “Researchers point to the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as glorification of bullies in the name of entertainment and point out that the high rate of domestic violence means that many young people grow up expecting that violence is an acceptable way to get what one wants” (Rettner). And because of this, bullies find violence towards inferior individuals to be a social delicacy.
