Proverbs 20:23 – Unequal weights are an abomination to the LORD, and false scales are not good.
I think this video sums things up in less time it would take me to type up a post.
However, I’ll just say that personally, I’ve witnessed this long before I ever knew about “The Pipeline”.
In my suburban high school, our basketball team got into a major parking lot brawl with another suburban high school. Cops were called, no one went to jail, and guys were bragging about the action the next day in school.
Fast forward a few years…my brother was attending a high school in the city. He got involved in a food fight in the cafeteria. School staff broke up the fight, called the police, and my parents got the call to pick him up from jail. The story didn’t end there, as he later had a court case (ironically held in our neighborhood middle school with a bunch of other school “court” cases), and had to have his recruiter vouch for him that he was a “good kid” and would soon be in the military, so don’t punish him.
Perhaps his biggest crime was not getting into a fight when he went to a school in the ‘burbs instead.
