Jackie Chism, a teacher at Jackson Heights Middle School, has long felt that violent movies and video games desensitize pre-teens to violence. But after the Sandy Hook shooting, she felt it was time to do something about it. She started Peace buy Piece, a program in which she buys back violent movies and video games brought in by her students and pays them double what stores such as Best Buy and Game Stop would pay for them. In the past year, she has collected more than 200 movies and games. She then destroys the discs and plans to create a mosiac with the broken chips.
