A Tragedy in Delaware

On April 21, 2016, There was a girl named Amy Inita Joyner, a sophomore student at Howard High School of Technology, in Wilmington, Delaware, Her mother had dropped her off never knowing that it would be the last time that she wold see her alive. as soon as she went into the school, two girls jumped on the student, beating up on her which later bust her head on the bathroom sink knocking her out unconscious. A few minutes later... school security guards found Amy Joyner out cold, called the police and rushed the teen to the hospital by State Trooper helicopter. Their efforts to save her life were not successful. Amy Inita Joyner was pronounced dead at the hospital from her injuries. She was 15 years-old. Now, the two girls who had started that fight over a boy were arrested for her murder and will be tried as adults. The father of that precious daughter was heartbroken to hear that Amy Joyner was dead. It even broke the mayor of Wilmington, Denis Williams said tearfully, "I'm so upset that a young lady lost her life today. Things like this shouldn't happen. My heart bleeds for the family, the kids that go to this school, administrators and our city". The rest of the school was dismissed for the day. No one was there to stop it. All you see is students taking pictures on their smartphones, putting it up on Facebook, Twitter and Instigram. They've just watch it all unfold instead of intervene this horrible tragedy to a young girl who was called "a peacemaker". She was well liked by her students, her teachers and her parents. Now as for the onlookers, you should have prevented this from happening! So, that's makes you as guilty as the two assailants are. You will feel some percussions on this one. Because you've let Amy Joyner die and didn't help her! Parents! It's time you need to step up your game and discipline your children and set them straight! There is no reason for a boy or girl to lose their life over stupid stuff like that! None! And to you school employees, you need to do your job and stop letting these kids get bullied, hurt or killed over stupid stuff. You're destroying the school system by letting things like this happen to our kids! That is unacceptable!!! That's why so many parents take their kids out of the public school system all around the country and have them home schooled, because this school system has failed our kids in a miserable and the worst way! So, parents... Get your children disciplined or your child will be next!

Yes, it was a terrible tragedy. It may not have been premeditated murder but nevertheless a child is dead.
