Violence is not a stranger to society today. We see it among young and old people and it taints their innocence. In Reno, Nevada, a 14 year old boy was fatally shot by a school campus officer due to him waving two knives around campus and near students. Due to all of the incidents concerning citizens committing horrible crimes, this event adds to the list of the fearful situations happening in our society.

 

The young boy was at first involved in a fight with another student then revealed the concealed weapons he carried. There is no doubt that the students on campus were afraid for their lives; as they witnessed a brutal happening right before their eyes. No one knows exactly why the student brought knives with him to school.

 

The events occurring today are enough to put fear in anyone. Society must learn to be careful and aware of their surroundings and the people they are near.
