Girl on Girl Violence - "Its Not Sexy"

Given the "riot" at Northpark mall being linked to a fight between two girls, I thought this would be relevant. Actually, Chicago is having a huge problem with this and it looks as if it's working across I-80. WGN radio spent an hour with this subject today, and the info below is from a relevant web site. QC Parents should follow this issue. According to an expert on WGN, bullying can be both physical as well as mental, from e-mail to texting. Schools and guidance counselors have failed to deal with this issue. Hope you find this informative -


1 out of 4 violent episodes are being perpetrated by teen girls, up from just a generation ago when it was 1 girl -10 boys. As can be seen, girl violence is increasing from 1-10 and now 1out of every 4 violent episodes involves girls carrying it out. According to the Justice Department, it is not just boys any longer, violence among girls is on the rise. Schools report a similar pattern in the number of girls suspended or expelled for fighting. Around the country schools, polices and teachers are seeing a growing tendency for girls to settle disputes with their fists. They are finding themselves breaking up playground fights in which girls are going at each other at an alarming rate.

· In the last month more than 10 arrests were made at Dyett Academic Center in Chicago, after violence that included a group of girls who allegedly walked into a classroom and choked a student, pushed her to the floor, and stomped on her face. Some parents at a south side Chicago public high school are refusing to send their daughters back to classes unless Chicago Public School officials address violent behavior by an alleged girl gang.

· In another allegation, a group of 17-year-old girls were walking down a hall, escorted by security officials, when a group of girls beat them.

· A 14 –year-old girl was standing in front of Allentown's South Mountain Middle School in Pennsylvania one morning last spring when another girl came up behind her, grabbed her ponytail and yanked her to her knees. After dragging her backward across the asphalt and tearing her jeans, the attacker then punched the 14-year-old six times in the face, bloodying her nose and lips. ''She didn't know my daughter,'' said the girl's mother. ''It was a problem she was having with one of my daughter's friends. She said she grabbed her because she was the closest one.'' Allentown saw aggravated assault arrests of girls nearly double last year.

· At a birthday party in Baltimore, Nicole kissed a boy on the cheek as a dare. At least 6 other girls ages 12-15 and possibly 2 adult women then savagely attacked the 12 year-old and put her in the hospital in a coma. "This is vicious, 'I-want-to-hurt-you' fighting. It's a nationwide phenomenon and it's catching us all off guard." Jansen Robinson, Former Baltimore School Police Chief.

It's not only happening in the inner city. The problem has bled into the suburbs where girls as young as 8 are getting into hallway brawls. In interviews with more than a dozen high school girls, all said they'd witnessed a girl fight in the last year, and many admitted (with pride) that they'd been in one. One 18-year-old teen girl at Liberty High School, PA said, ''A girl was saying stuff about me behind my back, 'I had to confront her.'' This means popping the girl in the face. In Benton Harbor, MI the Chief of the Benton Harbor Police Department said, “There have been some problems in the high school and amazingly it's been primarily with the young girls fighting each other.” "By 5th and 6th grades it's no longer put-downs and yelling,'' said a Medical Director of a mental health treatment center for children and teens. He went on to say, ''We're seeing more and more overt physical confrontation among girls. It can get pretty nasty.'' One in four high school girls in the nation reported they had fought at least once during a one-year period, according to the latest statistics, and arrests of teen girls for assault are off the charts.

The same can't be said for boys, who posted a decrease in aggravated assault arrests in the same time frame. In another organization similar stats are coming out. The Center for the Study of Prevention of Violence in Boulder, Colo., reports that in the last decade, the number of female juveniles arrested for violent crimes (murder, robbery and aggravated assault) increased 25 percent, with no percentage increase in arrests of male juveniles during that same time frame.

* I am sure the Q-C Times will run a full story on this, after reading my post!! :)

According to Fisher it is the fault of the photo enforcement cameras.

So much for the sugar, maybe too much spice? But nothing nice about violence among kids of any gender.

Colonel, if you follow this "newsy" approach you've shown lately you might replace the Drudge! You've already replaced the paper and local news casts for me.
Thank you, please continue!!!

Big Props....

According to the Fisher (listen to him talk to himself) show, everything wrong in Davenport is the fault of our leaders. I think the citizens need to take responsibility for their own actions. If you see something wrong going on report it don't just look the other way. We need to watch out for the other guy and help each other. Not listening to Fisher would be a good start, the poor little man is a self serving hypocrite.

I have it from good sources that the girl / girl violence upswing is due to the problems with the rental inspections.

That damn NEO. They are good-for-nothing. Don't these stores rent from the mall? Its not their fault. The NEO should have seen that these hooligans were up to no good and written them citations. The mall should not be responsible for the actions of its visitors, the City and NEO should be. Right Billy Lynn? You're our hero!

The decent people do accept responsibility for their actions, it is just the losers who don't. the good people do report to the city, but nothing happens. That is why we get so angry.

Too many people, good and bad, just look the other way. Then all they do is bitch, bitch, and bitch.

Cheap shot at the schools, Colonel. They have addressed the issue of bullying for a number of years.

Actually, that comment was rater broad based, not specifically to the Davenport School System. Again, I refer to the hour long conversation I listened to on WGN.

Nationally, schools have failed. Maybe Davenport is better, I wouldn't know.

No, you're wrong, Bill could not have been involved, there is no way on earth he could pass himself as a girl. Even Pixal would not be able to create that image. Well, there is Shrek though???
