News stories on Coach Kinne and Mary Oliver

Normally I don't do a lot of news reporting since it tends to depress me. However, a reader out of the USA asked about a couple of local stories so I will add links to whatever information I can find on the stories.

On the Coach Kinne shooting, here is a link from station KLTV Channel 7, Tyler-Longview, also MSNBC News.

The Houston Chronicle as well as USA Today also carry stories on the shooting.

On the Mary Oliver/Paulette Baines story, the news links are as follows.

American Renaissance News.

Boston.com And CHUD.com

After reading over both these stories it proves to me that this society is far too violent. I have not got the patience to teach kids but if I did, I certainly wouldn't tolerate being beaten in my class room by a psychotic parent. I do hope the court orders psychiatric testing for her.

In today's fast-paced modern society this is the very last thing a bunch of very impressionable kids need to see. It only reinforces violence with adults abusing other adults. I hope this is dealt with very quickly.

I don't know what the very latest information is on either case but I will post whatever I happen to find in the future.
