Who do young people respect or does this word actually exist anymore? We see young people every day speak to adults as if they are speaking to their peers. You hear them let out a string of expletives and dare you to say anything. Teachers encounter young people everyday who truly believe they can say anything to them. We are living with a generation of people who were encouraged to speak and share their every thought. So why would we believe they actually would curb their rhetoric when faced with law enforcement? I watched the McKinney tape and I believe the policeman was out of line when he forcibly 14 year old girl to the ground, and when he pulled his gun out on the boys he crossed so far over the line that it is hard to see him coming back from this but should the young people have simply complied? This guy was wrong but he was a man on the edge with the power to take a life. would you stop talking if it would save your life? Share your thoughts.
Would you stop talking if your life depended on it?
