Johannesburg - A grade 10 pupil was stabbed with a pair of scissors by a grade 8 pupil outside the Eric Louw High School in Musina, Limpopo police said on Friday.

      What do you expect when teachers are drunk/molesting kids, or, for the few respectable teachers, they not allowed to discipline the kid.

      So this happens at white schools as well! Where are all the commentators that were demonizing us and making us believe that it is only happening at our schools. All the hypocrites are quiet on this topic now!

      Philemon - Read the article slowly and copy and paste the section for me that refers to the race of the kids involved. I have tried but I must be missing it.

      Philemon: White kids, you must be reading between the lines!

      @Kala, Eric Louw High School must be a white school. Comment sponsored by Philemon.

    Assault? Why not attempted murder!

    This is what happens when the government, in all their wonderful wisdom and foresight in to know what they doing, take away corporate punishment!

      Philemon - 2012-03-09 15:41

      Corporal Punishment - is a form of physical punishment that involves the deliberate infliction of pain as retribution for an offence. I do not know what corporate punishment is. Please clarify.

      Kala - 2012-03-09 15:56

      Corporate punishment is what the government does to big business by imposing huge tax on their profits.

    Its time parents started taking a good long hard look at the type of values we are instilling in out children. Human life is valuable , sorry any life is valuable , be it human , animal, insect. Teach your children at home first to respect each and every living thing. If kids are not being disciplined at home and if schools are no longer allowed to discipline children , then this is the type of future all children will know. Its shocking that children think nothing of hurting another.

    I grew up in Pietersburg and we competed quite regularly against this school. Then (1992) their discipline was outstanding and the camaraderie was something to be jealous of. Funny how things change in the New South Africa.

    If these punk ass kids studied as much as they stab each and make porn with cellphones...maybe they would achieve the results that we used to get back in the day... Best Matric class "TEAM CLASS OF 2003" we runs Bytch

    I think its this whole militant thing Malema is breeding into the youth today . Any conflict ...its attack instead of dialogue .

      Rodney - 2012-03-09 16:31

      When i was at school (70's) there was a fair amount of fighting between boys, but it was only fists and the occasional boot. part of growing up some might say, but there was never any weapon of any sort ever used. The only time i saw weapons was outside nightclubs in Jo'burg. Even then, it was only thugs and cowards who used a weapon.

      Kala - 2012-03-09 16:44

      Rodney - I was thinking the same thing. There were regular fights and in most cases once things had settled down there was no hard feelings afterwards.

    Maybe it was retaliation for bullying? I do not condone the violence or the act, but a 13 year old boy does not just randomly stab a boy two grades higher than him.

  • landievdm - 2012-03-10 19:49

    Time to get the facts straight- It was a black kid who stabbed a white boy and both the kids are in grade nine. It does not matter what the one said to the other, nothing in this world gives anyone else the right to pull out a knife, scissors or anything else to hurt another human being.
