I don't not agree with anyone getting into a fight...ever. With that said, I am wondering why anybody cares which high school any of these kids attend. Does it really make a difference? I am a 90's Mooney grad...and very proud of it...I am also a Canfield resident and a teacher at a local high school (No, not Mooney or Canfield). I see fights break out all of the time in the hallways between groups of boys or girls of all races, religions and financial backgrounds...and believe me, they think that they are justified to have these fights no matter what the reasons were that they fought in the first place. This is not a matter of where someone grows up, goes to school or how much money a family has. It's about acting your age. Unfortunately, people who are 17 & 18 years old are acting their age when they are fighting because they are still trying to get control of their anger at this age. I am not condoning their behavior, nor am I taking sides in this matter. They were all wrong. However, everybody who is "Mooney/Canfield-bashing" or "money-bashing" has absolutely no idea what they are talking about. Get over yourselves. The kids had a fight. They are going to court. Leave it at that. If you hate Mooney or Canfield, don't send your kids to school there. What's so hard about understanding at least that much? But, understand this: no matter where you send your kids to school, there will be fights...are you going to post a comment on Vindy.com about that?
