School violence spills to streets

To learn that violence is a problem on the Berkeley High campus is sadly of little surprise after my own incident. 

Last Oct. 24, a co-worker and myself (adult 30 year old males) were attacked by a gang of kids outside Willard Junior High School on our way on Telegraph Avenue after lunch. The kids turned out to be BHS students, let out of class early after a “pep” rally. Go team. 

If violence is being tolerated at BHS, then those lessons of tolerance are being taken into our streets.  

And we all pay for it, literally - I just got my emergency room bill and I am shopping for a lawyer.
