It is a CRIME, in the USA to assault a person, male or female, mad or not, and this girl needs to learn some self control before it's too late. Nobody is saying the redhead is perfect, but what the other girl and her friends did was criminal.And that's where it all starts. Nip it in the bud! However, sounds as if it may already be too late!
