Bobby Kent was a steroid-pumped, 20-year-old bully who liked to dominate his peers in their comfortable, middle-class Ft. Lauderdale beach community through psychological, physical and sexual abuse. One summer night in 1993, Bobby was lured to the edge of the Florida everglades with a promise of sex and drugs, but was never seen alive again.  The tormentor had become the victim in a bizarre and brutal act of vengeance carried out with ruthless, cold-blooded efficiency by seven of his high school acquaintances, including his lifelong best friend, and instigated by one overweight, under-loved teenager who believed her life would be perfect if Bobby Kent was dead.  This book is a riveting story of adolescent rage and bloody revenge, and all the more harrowing and horrific because it's true.

This video was adapted from an original play written by Daniel S. Kehde by Jaguar Educational and Producer/Director Greg Harpold.  Kehde and Harpold.  They have previously collaborated on award-winning educational dramas depicting teenage experiences with AIDS, date rape, disabilities, and hate crimes.  The program tells the story of a teen relationship that seems like love, but is eventually taken over by possessiveness, jealousy, and anger, and begins to take precedence over daily events such as school, homework, soccer practice, parties, and other friendships.  Throughout the program, viewers are introduced to the warning signs of an abusive relationship.  The age of the actors makes the program ideal for secondary school students, but it can also be used for a younger or a more general audience.  The story is reinforced by interview segments with domestic violence counselors who make connections between events in the drama and the patterns of abuse evident in real-life situations.  The video helps young people recognize the characteristics of a dangerous relationship, and makes the point that it is NEVER too late to get help.

This book gives real evidence that video games, movies, and TV are not only conditioning children to be violent and not realizing the consequences it can bring, but are also teaching how to kill. Some of these children are as young as eleven years old, and with amazing accuracy, murdering many people. Much of this evidence is based on recent major scientific studies and research. This is a very important issue in America at present, given the events occurring throughout the country. According to the authors, those who make violent video games, the TV networks, and the Hollywood movie studios share most of the blame. This book shows that it is important for every parent, teacher, and citizen to make an effort to help stop the wave of killing and violence caused by America's youth. Most significant, it's a guideline to show how that can be accomplished.

An enormous number of children in America live in homes where guns are easily accessible.  According to recent survey data, roughly 43% of American households with kids have guns in them, and more than 1.2 million elementary school students alone have access to firearms in their homes.  In all households with guns, 28% of them do not always keep their gun(s) in a secure, locked location where they cannot be accessed by children.  Only 25% of gun-owners with children in the house "occasionally" lock and store bullets in a separate location from the gun.  Many Americans have become desensitized to school violence, and the problem of guns in school persists.  Regrettably, schools continue to be a very dangerous place for kids in America.
