We’re all hearing the tragic news about the student who attacked an on-campus police officer at Roosevelt High School with a baseball bat. The officer fell to the ground and then shot the student, who died at the site. It is sad on both sides, the family who lost a son, and the police officer who tried to protect himself. The kNOw youth team also had many thoughts as they tried to process and understand the incident for themselves, fully aware that such occurrences could happen anywhere, even in their own schools.
We asked young people all across the Bay Area and the Central Valley if they were voting, what issues they think are the most crucial and who they would vote for. YO!
