“Bullying is a big problem that effects millions of students, and it has everyone worried, not just the kids on it’s receiving end” (Lyness 1). Bullying does not just affect kids, but the parents too. It affects the parents because a lot of their children begin to be afraid attending school.

Hazing is common among high school and college students, but it can be prevented by learning the warning signs of victims who have been hazed. Statistics show that 250,000 students experience some type of hazing to join a group or an organization in college each year. In most colleges 5% of the college admits to being hazed and 40% admit to knowing about hazing activities that take place on campus.
If you were to ask teachers in the 1980’s if they thought training school faculty members gun safety and allow them to carry weapons it would be viewed as unimaginable. With the increase of school violence since 1999 more parents and faculty members have been asking how we should go about keeping our children safe in school. In the United States in 2012, there were ten school shootings leaving forty-one dead and thirteen wounded (Tyrel). Many schools in urban neighborhoods have installed metal detectors and do backpack checks prior to allowing anyone into the schools doors. Should we train and allow school faculty members to carry weapons to help keep our children safe or should we find other methods of early detections to stop these events from happening.

What can be done to prevent hate crimes in society today? A hate crime is a crime committed by someone who is prejudice against a certain group or individual. These crimes can range from simple kindergarten name-calling to terrorist airplane attacks on the Twin Towers in New York or brutal planned school shootings, such as Columbine in Colorado.

Gun control is a long disputed topic, and many people have their own opinions on what is right and wrong. This should be made possible; it would help with security, and peoples’ sense of safety. Many students are scared of roaming campus, whether at dawn or dusk because of the fact that crime rates are higher on campus, more than anywhere else in the state most likely. Some would go against this because of the recent shootings, or the infamous school shootings of the past. That being said, guns should be allowed in the hands of the right people with the right background checks.
VIOLENCE IN THE MEDIA In recent years we have witnessed an alarming increase in the crime rate, especially among young people. We have been left shocked and at a loss to find explanations for why teenagers rob and blackmail, why young people commit physical violence, why children become murderers. Some people place the blame on the way violence is represented in the media and, as a consequence, demand that there should be stricter controls, or even censorship, put in place. However, this way of dealing with the problem is not undisputed. It is necessary to take a closer look at whether or not violence in the media really is responsible for this development and then to examine what censorship may entail before taking such a far-reaching decision.
