(i have had NO bad experiences with the wh police. just the opposite. i have found them to be nothing but helpful AND i have also found their response times are beyond excellent. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO what went wrong here???)

Woman Called For Police An Hour Before West Hartford Shooting

More than an hour before a man was shot in the neck on Tuesday, allegedly by a 17-year-old Conard High School student, a woman called police and asked that an officer be sent to her Abbotsford Avenue home to deal with a bullying problem.

"The same kids that are messing with my daughter in school are coming around my house, threatening me and my children," Quintina Texidor said during a three-minute phone call that began at 2:57 p.m.

"Someone will be there shortly," the dispatcher told Texidor....................

i'm not a big college basketball fan

of course i DO have a tinge of pride when uconn WOMEN and men make the final four. it just doesn't mean that much to me though

i did come across this rather unusual article about kemba walker. THIS made me smile

Stapleton: UConn's Kemba Walker uneasy in the NCAA tournament spotlight


STORRS, Conn. – The mega-ratings reality show starring Kemba Walker is far more compelling than what the television cameras have captured on the basketball court.
There is overwhelming attention paid to the Connecticut junior guard wherever he goes.
Two-dozen reporters gathered around Walker inside Gampel Pavillion, where he spoke Tuesday afternoon for more than an hour on a variety of topics — mostly centered on the thrill of having led UConn to within two victories of its third national championship.

and here is yet ANOTHER young (grrrl this time) one being bullied

a VERY touching video indeed

it seems to me schools do NOT do enough to protect children. then when something really goes wrong, schools start pointing the finger; we were never notified so and so was bullied or we did all we COULD or what the hell ever excuse they come up with. (note: i do NOT know the circumstances about ms pollack's school. i have no idea if they're helping or ignoring or what. i'm hoping the former NOT the later of course)

MY name is Alye Pollack and I am being bullied (VIDEO)

The reading comprehension exercises in Monique McClain's workbook leave her frustrated.
For the last two months, she hasn't done much because she has been out of school after she said classmates bullied her.
She was getting homework assignments from teachers at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Middletown, but not anymore. Not even a lawyer and a state marshal could get her the assignments..............



this is west hartford.........we do NOT have shootings here

at any rate, three are caught, 2 are missing. if tried and FOUND GUILTY (of course they are only alleged attempted MURDERERS as of this moment) the minors should be charged as adults and all of 'em should do the MAXIMUM time. a gun in the hand of a minor in a neighborhood. the (alleged) shooter EATING EFFING POUNDCAKE as he's firing. no. no and no

The Hartford Courant

Five young men remain in custody this morning in connection with a shooting Tuesday afternoon on Abbotsford Avenue that left a man critically injured.
Police said Thursday that a 17-year-old from West Hartford was the shooter. They did not identify him because of his age. He is charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit, and possession of less than four ounces of marijuana.
Police charged four others, including another 17-year-old who was not named, with conspiracy to commit first-degree assault. The three who police named are Andre Cooke, 18, of 62 South Quaker Lane, Marcus Stevens, 18, of 91 Red Top Drive, and Justin Reyes, 18, of 156 Dart St., Hartford...............
