It is like everyone keeps saying, the kids in the urban areas are terrible, violent, and trouble makers. They should just......

.....oh wait. This happened in the Suburbs. But, I thought nothing bad happens there.

.....Quick honey, time to to put the house up for sale and move out even further.

These little wiggers hang out on the Homestead bridge over the mouth of Ellicott Creek in the City of Tonawanda.

Someone should toss them into the water. Let's see them go 'gang bang' on the East Side of Buffalo and see how tough they think they are. Nothing but white trash, just like their parents most likely.

Look to all you people who want to post comments about this. This is very real, my daughter is one of the children affected by this so called gang. I can wallpaper a room in my house with the orders of protection. My daughter a straight A student was in fear for her life to go to school today. What good is an order opf protection when the school systems tells you they can not protect your child and when you offer to do it yourself you are an insurance liability? Every child has a right to a free and public education. No matter what the expense to any one else in the school. A teacher from THS told me today that the school system is more worried about lawyers and lawsuits than protecting the children in the school. So... What good is your free and public education when you are in fear of your life? How much learning are your kids going to do when they are checking over their shoulder all the time. One student is reported arrested when personally I am aware of at least three and they were from the "fresh girls" it is not just the boys, it is also the girls. Send channel 2 to my house, I can give them all the info they need. A THS parent.

Really? That is scarey - my cousins go to that school, I'll have to call them. Atleast they are taking the threats seriously. But the truth is they need to be leary of the quiet ones.

Hanging out on a bridge hardly seems criminal. I agree though - many kids from Tonawanda think they are "ghetto" sad truth is if they even had a glimpse of what a real ghetto was like they certainly wouldn't wish they lived in one.

Of course the donut suckin cops dont investigate anything anyway.
Usually when alot of kids know something is going on, it alot of talk.
Sounds to me the school needs to start teaching and the cops need to go suck another jelly donut.
I'm sure that's what they said at Columbine too.
Really stupid comment, Bill.

Yes I admit this threat should be taken seriously - but how many Buffalo Public school kids are arrested DAILY for bringing weapons in to the schools? I went to Riverside High School - a week didn't go by that someone wasn't arrested while in school - I wouldn't make comparisons until we start hearing about kids getting shot at the corner of Fletcher.

Overreacted???!?? Do you watch the news? I would be pissed my kids went to that school - and a threat was made, nothing was done, and the next day some kids get shot.

I dont think anyone would say crime doesn't happen in the suburbs,...but after going to a BPS all my life, and then sending my kids to Clarence schools - I'll take my chances with Clarence - thanks.

Obviously one of these gang members are one of your kids. If you lived here you would know that our "cops" aren't donut suckers like you and your cops are. Nice job

From what i heard these young punks hang out @ The Holmstead Bridge & Ive's Pond. The go around spray painting "FB" on things symbolozing there "Fresh Boys" gang. Its pathetic. They got this gang together becuase someones brother committed suicide beacause supposedly the football players and jocks hummiliated him. So now they want retaliation? Its rediculous. Grow up. Where are the parents? Get your kids to be home at a certain time. This city is getting filled with more and more trash and its disgusting

You hit on a big part of it Kaz. Due to rules and laws, schools can't remove the trouble making students anymore. These students (and it starts with a small percentage) need to be removed, given a chance in an alternative school and if they don't straighten out then removed all together IMO. I don't think education should be a right when the student is carring wepons, useing and selling drugs, or making the atmosphere unsafe for those who are there to learn.
