Blood sex and Booze. Drugs Drugs Drugs are fun. Stab, Stab, Stab, S…t…a…b…, poke. "So I had this dream last night where I went into a building, pulled out two P90s and started shooting everyone…, then had sex with the dead bodies. Well, not really, but it would be funny if I did." Umm, yeah, what to wright about…… I'm leaving to join the Marines and I really don't give a (obscenity) about my academics, so why does the only class that's complete Bull ****, happen to be the only required class…enough said. The model citizen would stay around to vote in new board member to change the 4 years of English policy, but no one really stays around to vote for that kind of local crap, so whoever gets there name on the Ballet with a pretty face gets to do what the (obscenity) ever they want with local ordinance. A person is smart, but people are dumb selfish animals. We can't make rules for ourselves so we vote others to do it for us, but we can't even do that right, I meen seriously, Bush for President? And our other option was John Kerry who claimed to parktake in Vietnam Special Forces missions that haven't been declassified….(obscenity) Bull ****. So Power Flower Super Mario. Pudge, hook, rot, dismember "Fresh Meat." Mostly new/young teachers are laid back, and cooperative with students as feedback and input into the curriculum and atmosphere. My current English teacher is a control freak intent on setting a gap between herself and her students like a 63 year old white male fortune 500 company CEO, and a illegal immigrant. If CG was a private catholic school, I could understand, but wtf is her problem. And baking brownies and rice crispies does not make up for it, way to try and justify yourself as a good teacher while underhandedly looking for complements on your cooking. No quarrel on you qualifications as a writer, but as a teacher, don't be surprised on inspiring the first cg shooting.
(The following is Lee's explanation of the essay above, given to the media by his lawyer.)
Authors Note: This production of writing is done in the most accurate manner I can depict of the original writing. Grammar and spelling mistakes are included at the best accuracy possible. The first phrase in questions is in fact a Green Day song. The second reference to drugs is in relation to the schools history of drug problems. I am personally clean of all controlled substances. The statement in quotes is done so as a non personal statement as I would have done in reference to a character for a story. The reference to the gun P90 is from a video game, combined with a reference to necrophilia as a comment regarding a seriously messed up situation. A situation such as the rape of villagers during a raid by U.S. troops in Vietnam. I really do not care too much about by continuing academia as in relation to grades. I do however believe on continuing my personal education, and I am actually still working for my classes. My views on the graduation requirements explain themselves. The reference to Mario and Pudge( a DOTA character) are completely random as is this essay. The reference to a person being smart and people being dumb is based on a quote from "Men in Black." I generally do believe the public opinion is best. The rest of the essay is rather self explanatory, the main statement in question I have already released a comment online about. I request that all information I have released is read together, and nothing given separately or as an excerpt as the administration has seen fit to do.
On an additional note, I have completed the MEPS (Military Entry Processing Station) examinations, and yes a psychiatric evaluation is included in the process. If I'm qualified to defend the country, I believe I'm qualified to attend school.

After I had quit high school my senior year and joined the Marines, my high school sweet hearts new boyfriend personally threatened to kill his gay art teacher and was expelled from high school. No high school would take him. His dad made him join the Marines.
I bumped into him in 11th Marines 1961 by shear coincidence just before he left for Kaneohe his new duty assignment and to marry my ex.
I saw him at our fortieth class reunion in 2000, his marriage to my old flame lasted only four years. He obtained the rank of Gunnery Sergeant, wounded in Vietnam and was a drill instructor.
All he wants to talk about is the Marine Corps.
BTW, the old flame is a multi-millionaire that lives close to Kaneohe in Kailua http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/tsmileys2/04.gifhttp://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/tsmileys2/27.gif

It seems that what this kid wrote about is all our kids see in "the public school system", i.e., teachers afraid to discipline bratty, smartass, punk, kids whose parents leave parenting to the school system, profanity in the hallways that teachers cannot take corrective action on, sex in the hallways and bathrooms, etc!!!!!

Something is wrong when you have to have policemen in the highschool hallways.

Maybe? If he didn't call his teacher a control freak..everything would be all right.Then he could join the Marines and get out on a psych(sic) discharge.:yes:

When I was in boot camp, our West Leyden High School back home (I went to East Leyden H.S.) had a shooting 1960. A suspended student was was molesting his former girlfriend in the hallway whom her parents told her to stay away from. My well liked Gym Coach Mr. Bernstein interceded and was shot (survived) but the kid killed his estranged girlfriend. 1960
