Doesn't know who hit him? Or does he just want to deal with the person himself in his own way?

I wish more people would let the police handle these things.

Presuming there was alcohol involved- (otherwise, why need a bar stool?).... since when
was alcohol allowed on school owned property? Or was this a parking lot fracas? And a lot of these attendees were under the age of twenty-one. Many places will not rent their facility for this Latina 15th birthday party event. Learned their lesson.

From stories like these, it sounds that kids' birthday parties are no longer safe from alcohol. This is for 15 and 16 year olds then there should be no alcohol there. Let the girls have their fun but don't spoil it by treating them as if they were adults.
