When my baby girl got stabbed with a Popsicle stick in some non since gang activities the loving and caring principle pulled the evil child off my baby girl. I was called immediately and the school handled it very professionally by giving the other girl a WHOLE week on detention hall (Which has a very deserving punishment). Then after all that i sought after the opportunity to follow that devil child to her mama's car and me and my gurl Quonda beat the devil out of that devil child. ON MY HOOD, that school knows how to alert the parent of the students so they can handle the problem themselves, the way it should be.
