  1. Disagreement or not disagreement, argument or not argument, where does all of this violent behaviour come from??? We need to ask ourselves as a society, why so much physical violence going on here?????

    • Violence has always been around, and human beings are flawed. It’s a shame but clearly it’s a part of life just like breathing air. You’re part of society, so why do you believe it happens often and do you have a solution or will you just ask questions on a forum for 10 people to read? Hopefully the young man pulls through.
