family is family ! no matter what a family member does you stick by their side && be there for them . you may not approve of their actions but you continue to love them && stand by them . when it comes down to it , it's not about what they did . it's about the fact that your still family no matter what . it's sad that so many people devote time out of their day to just set at a computer && talk bad about people they don't even know . I'm the mother of Rico's daughter && unborn child . i don't judge him on his actions , i love him for who he is on the inside && not the outside . if everyone wouldn't judge others on their outside image instead of their inside then maybe people could work together && get along long enough to make it a better place . if you don't know them personally then you don't know what they had in mind for their life and community . things happen , not always for the better but thats when everyone should come together to help prevent && comfort each other . you can't always blame everyone for another individuals mistakes , or those accused .
Sticking by someone just because you share a genetic link is what prevents the WV Tree of Life from blooming into something better.

I was stating that THE CRIMES were everywhere not just in Rand - Right now it is the Straugter name in the paper and he is in jail - but innocent until proven guilty = most likely as many threats on this topic, the witnesses will be scared too even state they saw him do it, so probably he will get out of it.
If I had a daughter dating known drug dealers and felons, I would expect people to think she approved of their actions. I don't see where anybody specifically accused a person by name as being a prostitute though - maybe I missed that post - I certainly did not. But it was a prostitute in Rand who beat an old man up and now he's in a nursing home for life - I'm sure you people all know about that too.
Also 30 years ago, very few people in this area had the money to buy drugs to shoot up with that I knew of anyway and the crime rate was not as bad in KANAWHA COUNTY as it is now.
II would be having my daughter DRUG TESTED, for sure due to the fact that she was hanging out with known druggies. Not just one drug test either!

Good luck with thinking parents can/will get drug tests on bull headed addicted teen girls in love with wanna be thugs. They will do what the one they love does, but would be kinda hard to drag one kicking and sceaming which is what one would probably do.

You could trick them into thinking it's a test of diabeties or something I suppose.

And yes it's normal for family to love their members no matter what - but don't enable them please by giving them a free place to hang around and money for their vices, etc.

Bottom line is, this is not TV, its real life. If you dont work honestly, what do you do? If you cant.get work, its either.because ur.lazy or you have a present or past record. People like to say, "oh, dat was da past." , well you are your past. Those guys both live that life cause it got them laid and paid. If your actions are not godly they are evil. Eventually its gonna catch up to ya. Wish we could read the paper and see these guys becoming Rev.'s instead of getting killed or being the killer. Its obvious the police in WV are 10 years behind the rest of the country, just like the whole state is ten years behind. They have.been unable to lock these guys up for good. When humans are lil babies is when they learn to respect others and learn their morality. So sorry for the families and the community. We need to put a stop to the drugs and thugs. The problem is you have the real thugs , then you have the "swagful".wanna be rapper thugs. Put GOD in front and let him lead us.. OUT

I agree it has to start when the young are open minded enough to follow good role models and stay away from the bad - as much as possible. It does roll over to the schools as that is where many mix with other types of people that may cause them to follow the wrong lead...

Should never have taken the church and discipline out of schools. Made a difference when I was growing up, even though it irritated me to think I may get a whipping in school - a couple of times just got hit on hand with a rules for chewing gum or something silly like that.

thats the whole point, we live in a time where the devil rules. but its not going to last to much longer,look around us meteours barely missing earth,children getting killed in school, same sex marriages,etc . i could go on for ever with whats going in the world. and the sad part it seems like no one cares,for if they did u would,nt have all this evil . the lord is trying to give man a chance to straighten up his act to no avail.people are greedy ,selfish and uncaring unless something happens to them. i was told by my grandfather at a young age you come into this world with nothing and your gonna leave with nothing and you reap what you sow. so i was never caught up with material things.yes its nice to have money and nice things ,but not at the expense of others . you work and you earn it . you don,t lie steal, rob and sell drugs to get it. why sell your soul for a few pieaces of gold.the world is to materialistic and laid back.

Can't get a job because of laziness? I don't think so.. My son is a college graduate and is still having a tough time getting a job! They want 2years experience , and he worked his ass off and made good grades! So don't tell me that people that don't work are lazy.. You are wrong! The job market isn't really the best right now, and hey let's face it, if a college grads are having a rough time i am pretty sure non college grads don't have a shot in hell to support their families! I'm not condoning murder, but some of you are misinformed!

I agree it's hard to get a good paying job in this day and time and it looks like employer's will even be laying off more workers due to Obama care Health Plan.

Only thing I can say is get any job you can and then if you are considered very poor and have a family, you;d have to get help from the system - food stamps, etc. Hey if you are trying to earn money that's what the HELP IS FOR. Later if and
when you get a better job, then you can go on your own.

I'm so glad I'm retired but any day they can mess with retirement plans and social security - it's scary - I made sure I paid off all big bills about the time I retired though so I could live on less money. whew!!!

Uh - well yes snitches TELL ON BIGGER DEALERS and prosecutor takes a lesser plea. Way it's been for years now, but actually only releasing small time wanna be's that turn into BIG TIME killers - such as in this instance. I've always been taught, once you kill, the second time is easier?

Scary - as I'm sure many have spoke against him and will be very afraid if he gets out soon.
