Fights erupted at a high school in Louisiana...

So these dads took matters in their own hands

.

something I've been saying for a while, that society needs to get back to the real First Responders ie Family & Friends. When people started leaving those they love up to the government to take care of we saw society get worse.

By Faith Karimi and Gregory Lemos, CNN 32 mins ago

A violent week of fistfights at a Louisiana high school led to the arrests of at least 22 students last month. So a group of concerned fathers decided enough was enough.

They formed a volunteer group, Dads on Duty, and began roaming the halls of Southwood High School in Shreveport to calm students, spread positivity and keep the peace.

So far it's working.

The group of about 40 fathers, wearing Dads on Duty T-shirts, patrol the campus every weekday on different shifts, working as community leaders and liaisons.

Since they started the initiative, there's been no fighting at the school.

"Just being there makes a big difference," Tracy Harris, one of the dads, told CNN's Don Lemon this week. "At first it was kind of shaky. But now when we walk up ... we give them good affirmations for the day. And it helps ... it controls their temper.

"Just seeing us and (that) we're embracing them in a different manner, it makes all the difference in the world."

At first, the plan didn't involve the dads going to school

The dads started conversations on how to take action after a second fight broke out at the school September 17. It involved two groups of teenage girls and led to the arrests of eight students, the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office said.

That followed a brawl the day before, after which 14 male students were arrested. One student was charged with battery for punching an assistant principal, and another was arrested after he made threatening statements to the school's resource officer and a staff member, the sheriff's office said...

GOOD! Cuz Black kids are already in the school-to-prison pipeline by junior high. One little infraction can set a Black child on a totally different course in life than the same infraction for a white child.

It is late in the evening but never too late, a LINE HAS TO BE DRAWN IN THE SAND

You cannot take everyone with you and you have to label people and behavior that directly hurts family/friends/neighbors/neighborhoods

Judge Joe takes it further (the blame is lack of personal responsibility, the breakdown of family and community 1st and foremost) and including black males(mostly) he says it is also blue collar workers who become obselete, the displaced person etc as a result of computerization of industry
