Even at 14, I hope they do get charged as adults...but the tax payers will have to support their babies.

Yeah, forget maybe trying to rehabilitate these kids so they can fulfill their potential in a positive way and become assets to their community, rather than condemning them at such a young age to the state prison system where they will most likely be molded into more hardened criminals than they are today.

This is the way we treat each other, like animals that need to be caged due to their inability to learn, and we wonder why we're in such sharp decline as a people?

The sad thing is their actions mirror what the values of their surroundings are. Things have sunk to such a drastic low in the inner city and even in less populated areas because of gang culture, parents in prison, and the youths trying to act like their role models because that is almost the only way to fit in. Kids in these areas that follow the law, try to excel in school and generally be good are admonished by their deviant peers.

No easy solutions but at fourteen charging them as adults certainly will be the decision made by the authorities as they interview, analyze and evaluate their attitudes, remorse and suitability for rehabilitation. This will depend solely on how these perps view their actions, the impact to the community and their own willingness to change for the better.

Because of the surge of gangs and gang culture in the past 20 years, we are NOW seeing their prodigies. This is what you get when gang members have children... we're seeing them now as teens. They grow up surrounded by this, and most of them are treated like garbage by their parents, or completely ignored.

People? like this don't belong in part of a free society. Not everyone is capable of living among the free. Lock em up, throw away the key, raise taxes to pay for the room and board. Maybe we can save on some welfare payments by keeping them locked up, too.

Nothing but MAGGOTS come out of Oakland. These alleged humans are maggots breeding more maggots. I was just watching tv about Oakland gangs and one case was about a 16 year old maggot named Ronnie Greer who was shot to death and his maggot of a mother, Lanikka Shelton, sat there on her big ass saying why did you kill my son? What could a 16 year old (child?) have done to deserve that? All the while showing pictures of him flashing gang signs. ROFLMAO! WHAT? Just exactly did she expect? AND why wasn't she keeping her "child" under her control? I guess that would mean that SHE would have to stay off the streets. Party time's over if you have to keep an eye on your kids. If these black sorry excuses of womanhood didn't pop out kids like they were Pez candies, they would be able to afford better living conditions and better educations for their little maggots. Also EVERYONE living between Seminary Avenue and 105th Avenue are scum wrapped in filth and tied together with a big garbage bow. Who CARES if they kill each other off? Really? I say let them. And their skanky, rag nasty daughters too. Yuck.

I watched it also. I'm still in shock as to how bad the problem is in Oakland. Too bad Janet Napolitano hasn't visited the city "after dark." Perhaps she'd change her stance on protecting illegal alien border jumers infecting the country!

Poo bear your obviously a idiot. Your probably a trailer park reject with a third grade education. Only a ignorant person would condemn an entire Community. There is good and bad in every city. Some parents in the inner city are very active in their kids' life and some of those kids go on to become college graduates and productive members of society. Not every "black mother" in the inner city have a multitude of off spring . You can find major issues such as drug & alcohol abuse, domestic violence, sexual promiscuity affecting many teens " high class" neighborhoods as well. The issue should be how do we address these issues and enforce a positive change. Condemnation and ignorance doesn't solve anything.

What those poor deprived teens need is a hug and more social assistance from our beloved Mayor Quan. Once Quan is gone, then Law and Order can be restored and they can be locked up for life, until John Burris gets them out again for a hefty fee.

I disagree. Although Ralph may have a juvenile racist way of stating matters, his content is accurate. Oakland had become the single most dangerous city per capita, and there is absolutely no parental oversight over these young hoodlums. Crack, meth, and violence are now the norm in Oakland. We have a mayor who's head is either in the clouds or buried in the sand, depending on the circumstances. The black youth culture of violence has risen to a level never seen before, and law enforcement has been totally overwhelmed by the increased frequency of violent crimes and scrutiny brought down upon itself by the Riders Scandal. The families of these hoodlums must intervene and get their offspring under control if the children of Oakland are to survive. DO NOT COUNT ON MAYOR QUAN TO SOLVE THIS DELEMA, as she is incapable of doing so.
