We should show no mercy on the hoodlums that do this. They must be very stupid to even try this. When they are caught they should be prosecuted to the letter of the law.As I have said before, maybe a stint in the military would be good for them. I would like to be the drill instructor for them. What fun I would have breaking them down.

Maybe these people,[or should call them animals) should understand that there is no free ride. You have to work, not be in a gang. My dad worked WPA during the depression and looked down his nose at anyone who wouldn't work. His famous saying was grab yourself by the seat of your a?? and go fine a job. You might have to dig ditches or shovel s??? but anyone can find a job. So don't cry on my shoulder that you are abused by society. Quit crying and make something of yourself.

I just read in the KC paper that China can put anyone into a forced labor camp for up to 2 years whithout a court trial.Sounds good to me. Kind of sounds like our old southern states chain gangs. A lot of them might straighten out their lives so they don't get sent to a labor camp again.

Unfortunately I dont understand why kids today dont have any RESPECT. Not for their parents, church, schools, the law? I was raised to RESPECT my parents, the law, teachers, etc. Learning respect and being respectful earns respect. So these kids dont deserve respect? They do, lets respect them enough to realize that they need help, they need to "start over" with the rules of society. I ALSO BLAME THE PARENTS FOR BREEDING AND NOT TAKING CARE OF WHAT THEY PLACE ON THIS EARTH. Its a sad thing that is happening in our society. It's not about race either, it's just HAPPENING.

The way to deal with gangs is simple...first mandatory prison sentences of at least 10 years for even being affiliated with a gang and if you are caught gang banging again give you a life sentence...no three strikes...gang banging is a dangerous crime. I donīt care who you are.

Vote out the governor and state legislatures if they aren't giving you laws which protect you. Vote out the mayor and city council for the same reason. Run for office and don't vote the same old "we are rich and religious and run the city" crapola.

The solution is simple--stop feeding and housing those who refuse to work. Any parent of a kid found guilty of a gang related crime found to be on public assistance should have all benefits pulled immediately.

That's good if the cops arrest gangbangers but all black people are not bad. And it isn't just black gang bangers around. White people commit just about the same or more crime then blacks. You don't hear about them all the time. And let's not forget about the whites that act black and hang with them. Cops in waterloo will go after a old lady or man. Long as their black. In their eyes we are all bad .

This isn't Califronia.
This is IOWA.
Nobody will ever do that, I hear so much about how these "hoodlums" or "animals" are being called, harsh things, labor camps etc/etc..But yet, walk in THEIR shoes, you try living a life where you don't have anything to eat, nothing wear the same clothes everyday. Everyone on here judging someone for having gang affliations is fucking pathetic, you wanna give me 10 years? I bang 24/7 I'll bang til I'm 6 feet deep. You can't stop gangs.

sorry but not all blacks are doing the crime. Every race is doing crime in Waterloo if you never been hear then you don't need to talking. There plenty of whites that murder, rob, drug abuse. so please get your fact straight.
