Student violence in schools

Q:  Why do students just start shooting other students in the classrooms or school yards? Is there anything we can do to stop it?

A:  Those who would shoot or otherwise wreak havoc and death within those schools of students not yet in college, do so for several reasons, the most common one (reason) is that of emotional and action center responses. That those who would shoot others are shifting either to the instinctive or moving part of the emotional center is true, for it causes them to react in a violent, non-intellectual/reasoning manner because the intellectual center is shut out and little energy is given to “thinking” or reasoning through either actions or consequences. Rather do they merely respond at an instinctual level.

That we see this as the primary cause [for these incidents] is true; however, there are also those who would recreate a situation in which they were victims. That they responded in a way that was balanced and non-karmic creating, is not true, but that is their choice. This is the truth for three such school violence incidents; but no others.

We also see several occurrences wherein those of the second cycle have not yet found the best method in which to “conform” or fit in, nor do they completely understand those rules and restrictions as created by men. Therefore, do they “erupt” either from fear or from their inability to comprehend. That the punishments of your society will aid or prove beneficial to any of these who have perpetrated this violence is true, for those with little or no understanding of man’s rules will gain from their experiences of incarceration…at an essence level. However, those responding to imbalances (karmic situations), or to choices made while within the emotional or instinctual portion of their centers will not. This is because they already understand that which they chose and have already begun to perceive why these choices may not have been the most balanced.

That these types of violent outbursts will continue is true, but not with such regularity. Much was caused by the “triggering” of those situations by those who heard or viewed others participating within situations similar to theirs. Without sufficient catalyst, would the other incidents most likely not have occurred. However, by acknowledging the first incident and broadcasting its image and details, did it provide the catalyst for those following it. We see little to prevent similar cascading effects as long as those of the media are allowed to continue their broadcasting of all events as they happen.

You may perceive the secondary events as copies; however, we see them as scenarios awaiting that catalyst which will place them in motion. For all the elements are already placed, they merely need that match which will start the fire.

We do not wish to curtail the media, for that is not our way. But we do wonder how much responsibility is used or taken by those who would broadcast those events occurring all around every day, for it appears to us that little thought is applied to what is projected to those called audience. Even the manner in which an event is presented can affect how others perceive it. Therefore, do we wonder how much thought is given by those who would work within that medium of news or information dispersal as to what information and how it should be presented, for by presenting something as thrilling or exciting, do they instill in others the perception that it would be beneficial to perform similar actions were they to seek “fame” or notoriety. Whereas, the presenting of some information in a negative manner may give others the perception that it is not something to be proud or happy about, and so is not the type of action or example to be copied.

That is not to say that someone who would then perform some action should not take responsibility for that action. We did not say that and we do not mean that; however, we do indicate that each person should realize the extent of their responsibility for those actions that they take. Some realize not the persuasiveness and influence they wield when they speak or display scenes of events that have occurred; therefore, do they not realize or take the responsibility for that influence, and so use little or no thought when presenting their information. Just as others use little thought when performing some action, understanding not the results of their actions, nor the possible reactions and/or consequences. Again, this is a case of abdicated responsibility.
