yea thats exactly what it is...NOT!!
its simply parents not teaching their children to respect things that arent theirs & a lack of discipline (i know i spelt that wrong)
it has NOTHING to do with exposure to the "black" culture

Guess what folks...I happen to know a few of these parents. They are awesome people who have worked very hard to bring up their children with respect and manners. Yes, the kids made some big mistakes and they will suffer the consequences. But the parents are struggling to understand why the kids chose to go against what they were taught.I bet that many of you made bad decisions when you were young, or, maybe someone in your family or neighborhood did. Why be so quick to judge. It is not necessary to blame...the kids are already blamed...and will be punished accordingly.

As for posting the names of the younger kids...think about it this way...If a kid made the choice to behave badly and commit the crimes that they have been arrested for, and learned a lesson from it...can't we allow him to move ahead in life without tagging him forever. While it's true that some of these guys will always be trouble, destined to go to prison...others have learned from one stupid choice.Lets let them grow beyond this in a posotive direction.

As a parent of one of those charged, I can assure you that it is not the parents, we identified that our kids were doing wrong and sought help from the county, town, police, advocacy agencies, therapists, and the schools. We were informed that with "1299" students, they could not help us in the schools. Perhaps if the school stopped spending money on meetings and police, they could afford another therapist to actually help the kids. And maybe if the police could do something more than just tell us our kids do not want to come home when they run away, we could actually ground them. And If the county did not just try to run the clock out until they became adults and were no longer part of the youth budget, we could have helped our sons more.

It's not the school's job to raise your kid for you. Here's an idea - try not blaming everyone else and take a good hard look in the mirror. Oh, and they do have a thing called "military school". It's not to late to enroll for next year.

it isnt the schools responsibility to get therapists for youre kids, that is youre job, as i have always said, take some responsibility for youre lack of parenting and get some therapy for yourself.it isnt everyone elses job to raise youre kid.

Actually, it is partially the schools job.
partially,but here is another parent blaming the school, the neighbors ,their friends ,the police, the teachers, the school board, everyone elses fault for what their kid did. it isnt their fault for not knowing where their kid was ,at all hours, or who they were with.STOP IT. let them spend some time in jail, or whatever it takes to make them grow up.
