What the heck does liberalism have to do with this? Yup, all liberals are for kids fighting with each other, disrespecting teachers, and ignoring police requests. Just ludicrous. The problem is there is no supervision or discipline going on at home, and thus, the kids feel they can do what they want with no repercussions. Getting thrown out of school? Not sure whether that will actually be a punishment, or a reward for these kids? It doesn't sound like learning is their top priority. Kudos to the police for coming in and keeping the peace. Sounds like we have a "Lean on Me'' moment and need a Morgan Freeman-type (Joe Clark) to come in, kick a$$ and turn things around.

Although the "slashing" was the call, it looked a heck of a lot more like Gost was, for lack of better term, giving a little tap to the jewels...

For the record, writer Ben Coccio and director Derek Cianfrance have both said Rittner was instrumental in convincing "The Place Beyond the Pines" to shoot in Schenectady. The narrative was always set in the city, but there were talks about filming it elsewhere.
