To curb after-school fights between middle school students belonging to rival gangs, Albany officials, parents and community members will hand out 1,200 free donuts.
“Twelve-hundred Dunkin Donuts. That works with kids, they like that. It’s almost like an olive branch,” said organizer Alison Coleman.
Matthew Tabor is not impressed.
It might be reasonable for one to think that being so out of touch with students allowed the violence to escalate in the first place.
Well, there’s nothing like a hit of sugar to fuel the after-school stabbings.
