I just read a CNN article about a teenager who killed the principal. www.cnn.2007/law/04/21/principal.shooting.ap/index.html.
What drew my attention was that the principal tackled the kid and put him in a bear hug. This just made things worse. Now, you might recall that I posted something about breaking up a fight last year. And I suggested that grabbing someone from behind was a really bad idea. Well, it *still* is a really bad idea. If you absolutely must do it, be sure to immobilize the arms so this won’t happen to you.
