Kids, killings, bad behavior and little or no consequence

On Friday, In Long Beach California, two little Elementary kids - a 10 and 11 year old, got into a fight in an alley after school hours.. this fight was over a boy they both liked.
Witnesses said the fight was planned during school hours and most kids were aware of it. The girls who watched the fight said they tried to stop it but the boys didn't let them. According to Joanna's friend "the two girls took off their backpacks,  put their hair in a bun, and then that's when they said `go' and that's when they started hitting each other".She said the fight only lasted 1 minute and no one fell to the ground.

However, after the fight,10 year old Joanna Ramos went back to school to participate in after school extracurricular activities, she didn't have any physical injury but complained to her classmate and teacher that 'her head hurt'. So she was sent home.

On her way home she complained of a headache and vomited all the way, so her Mom took her to the hospital where she underwent emergency surgery for a blood clot on her brain. Unfortunately, she died six hours after the fight.
Apparently, the other girl landed some heavy blows to her head during the fight which caused some internal bleeding.
Joanna's death has now been ruled a homicide but 11 year old  has not yet been charged.

Yesterday, a 17 year old Ohio high school kid took a gun to school, shot 10 rounds and killed 3 of his school mates, leaving 1 in critical condition in the Hospital, he has since been arrested.

Then in Fresno, three fifth graders poisoned their teacher's coffee with rat poison, fortunately for the teacher however, one of the culprits changed his mind and knocked off the teacher's coffee. This incident happened in December but no one knew about it until the Mom of one of the culprits started bragging that her son saved the teacher's life.
The school authorities expelled the three kids as soon as they heard about the incident and reported it to the Fresno police.
The school teachers don't think expulsion is enough punishment though, they want the kids to have some legal action filed against them for what they did.

These are all kids who were/are just starting their lives. Why cant kids just be kids?? Go to school, study, come home, eat/ do your homework, go outside and play with other kids....like normal children.
What type of kids are we raising?? Why didn't the parents of the 5th graders severely punish their kids for trying to kill another human?? Seriously. Are these the kids that are tomorrow's future?? OMG!!

We are in trouble..BIG trouble.
