100 involved in NY school fights

One student sums it up, "They be groupin' up, and I just had to defend my people and that's what I do." It's basically been the black kids fighting the Hispanic kids. The students blame the school for lack of security. The fact that these teens boast when they get suspended tells me that security isn't the main issue here. These race wars are only going to continue when they get to their prison cells if we can't come up with some inspiring ways to reach out to the troubled youth.
