What started as reports of an afternoon baseball bat brawl between two groups of teens ended with two boys in hospital — one shot, the other stabbed — yesterday afternoon. A fight involving eight to 15 teens broke out near George S. Henry Academy on Graydon Hall Dr., near Don Mills and York Mills Rds., at about 3:30 p.m., Toronto Police Const. Tony Vella said. During the brawl, one teen was stabbed in the back and another was shot in the back. The injured teens, believed to be about 16, were from opposing sides, Vella said. After the groups scattered, emergency crews found the stabbing victim nearby with a “minor” wound and the shooting victim on a park bench down the street, where he had collapsed with what was thought to be a life-threatening injury, Vella said. He was rushed to hospital, where he was listed in “stable” condition last night, Vella said. Though the incident happened a half hour after classes ended at the nearby high school, it was unknown whether the teens were students there. “We have a responsibility to educate today’s teens that violence is not the answer,” Vella said. “It does not help the situation. It just fuels the situation. “You have someone shot and stabbed, then that person just wants to get (revenge),” he said. “Eventually, someone is killed.” Three separate scenes were taped off by police along Graydon Hall, which is dotted with five highrise apartment buildings. “I’m used to it,” a 12-year-old girl said of violence in the area since her family moved onto the street five years ago. “I hate when this happens.” “We are very afraid, very surprised,” said a Pakistani man who moved to the area five months ago. “We thought this city was very peaceful,” his wife added. “It’s been happening everywhere,” one woman said of the violence, with her one-year-old daughter in tow. “It is what it is … It is unfortunate.” http://www.torontosun.com/news/torontoandgta/2009/11/12/11717641-sun.html
ETHNIC, RELIGIOUS GANG FIGHTS AFTER SCHOOL IS NOTHING NEW IN CANADA, I SAW THE SAME THING IN MONTREAL DURING MY PUBLIC SCHOOL DAYS TOO. But I do have to say parents and the recession, economy firstly have set the tone, the environment for the fights. Both Working parents have no time to look after the kids, and both parents often fighting amongst each other over acquiring more money, paying the bills does not help much.. and it does affect the children’s school grades negatively now too.. but blaming the fights on the schools or the lack of policing is a false cop out.

Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Satan is on the loose today, even in churches, on the net now too
