Wow, just wow. I can tell by what you just said that you never grew up or attended any kind of urban school.

See, I did. I actually lived in a rural setting, but in the 10th grade I choose to attend a "Vocational School" to learn CAD. It was in the city. I was from the country. I didn't wear cowboy boots to school, but I saw guys that did. Big guys. Guys that didn't care if the thugs didn't like it.

Let me tell you something; you LEARN, and damned quick, to be aware, to expect shit, anytime, anywhere. I was there for 2 years, and then left to go back to my rural school. I had a fucking Glock pointed at me once, right in my face. (probably explains why I'm biased against Glocks?) I was 15. The girls would not go to the bathroom alone for fear of being gang-raped. They carried large knives in their purses. I saw teachers body-slammed onto a table during lunch.

It was a great learning experience for me. You didn't look people in the eye as you walked down the halls, for fear of "disrespecting" someone and then having not only them, but their gang of "Friends" beat you down on the fucking spot. You learned to blend in, to not be seen or noticed, to be aware of your surroundings and who was behind you, exits, etc.

There is no fucking way you even understand such an environment; I can tell by what you just said.

Get a fucking clue and come out of your priviledged environment and then come talk to the rest of us living in the real world instead of the Land of Make-Believe.
