Ebonics,is the lazy way for blacks to communicate.Do you hear whites saying axe,hey what I did.Where your sister is.These kids are required to read the same books in school.Obviously teachers are afraid to call them on it,or the parents use it at home.If I owned a business, sight unseen on applicants if it was a burger king or taco bell.As soon as I read the names shawanda or any of the retarted names these parents give these kids,they would never get a interview.Change your name,dress appropirately,stop being so loud,Nip the ebonics in the bud.Maybe the next time you will be hired.Hispanics do not even try to speak english.These schools expect the white kids to learn spanish.

I've only been here for 1 year and this scares me to see that people here still feel this way about other races.I moved to get away from riff raff I would hate to think I came to an even bigger problem racism.Maybe I should have done more research before moving.

Look, crime has to do with parenting for the most part. Home is the first government, a neighborhood is the second(an HOA is a good example), the town is the third, and so on.
Whatever a child experiences at home is how they will continue on in other aspects of their lives. If children live in fear and violence, with insecurity and desperation, they will bring this to all other areas of the community.
Punishment(which is used to cause even more fear) does NOT solve anything-which should be quite evident by now. With punishment, people will do whatever they want, and just become "better" at their crimes. Punishment is like a antibiotic, it often just causes superbugs. Instead of $9 million dollars being invested in jail, how about investing $9 million dollars in helping poor families work out their psychological problems. How about $9 million dollars to help poor mothers raise their children with love and empathy, instead of fear and violence. This is the only solution, but most people just want revenge, not solutions. They want people to "pay". Well in the long room, so long as these families are emotionally defective and grossly injust towards their infants and toddlers, we will see children carry their family's lack of values into our neighborhoods.

How can anyone with half a brain call a family a government? You are correct with the remaining comments on the government structure.

It is not true regarding what they experience at home is how they will continue on with the rest of their lives. There are many people that grew up in ghettos that are very successful today.

There is no punishment today. When a criminal (locked up) can have more luxuries than a lot of the working class people. You state with punishment people can do as they want. Very untrue, there have been lawsuits to prove that. That being said, I am in favor of the jail like in Az (a tent jail). They have been sued several times and have won all regarding living conditions.

You want to spend $9M on the poor to work out their psychological problems, more than that is already spent. Why spend $9M more? Or you want to spend $9M more to help poor mothers raise her kids, more than that is already spent. Why spend more? Teach these kids values at home reinforce this in school, maybe that will lower the unwanted babies. It is not my responsibility to raise other peoples kids, it’s not my responsibility to pay for other peoples responsibilities.

"A government is a body that has the power to make and the authority to enforce rules and laws within a civil, corporate, religious, academic, or other organization or group.[1]" Wikipedia
Families are absolutely first governments, and the parents are usually the ruling bodies who set the boundaries/rules and enforce them. Just like there are different types of governments outside of the family, there are different types within families. Some families are dictatorships, ruled by tyrants. Others are authoritarian or democratic, and children have lots of input and a "vote". There are many variations in between, but the bottom line is the same, families are the first governments. Families are our first experience with social limits and boundaries. Families are our first experience with social and financial responsibility.
I don't know rather or not you have a background in psychology, but I do. In doing multiple regression analysis over the course of decades, most psychologist have found an adult's childhood to be a good predictor of how they will go into the world. It didn't take scientist to figure this out, hence phrases like, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" or "like father, like son". All scientist have done is proven what most humans have always known.
Since 1980 we have discovered how prevalent abuse is within families. Prior to the 1980s', there were a couple of problems with identifying abuse. One was that parents could beat their children relentlessly, and it often wasn't considered to be criminal. Children were considered to be property of their parents(at least in a social sense), and so people turned a blind eye. Women went through this same thing as well, being once considered property of their husbands. In any case, most people didn't used to consider beating children "abuse", and so statistics for abuse were not available the way they are now. Additionally, children have more power today than they used to, and so they are more willing to come forward and speak out-just like women(and now even some abused men)! Power gives people a voice, leading to awareness. Anyway....

You mentioned successful people who were raised in ghettos. Being raised poor(lacking money), doesn't necessarily mean that you were abused. In addition, being abused doesn't necessarily mean you will grow up to be abusive. It's a simple Venn diagram. Not all abused people grow up to be abusive/violent, but nearly ALL violent/abusive people have been abused and treated violently as children. This fact is highly significant. Most of us can work through child abuse and violence, and make it out fairly ok, but many of us can't. We still don't exactly know why, but we understand that there are degrees to abuse and also biochemical and structural brain differences that occur in people who are severely abused verses those who aren't. Some people were smacked in the face, others were locked in closets or chained to beds, some were raped repeatedly as infants, others raped as teens. In addition, the earlier on the abuse occurs(first 3-6 years of life) and the more frequent, the worse off the child is likely to be as far as their ability to express empathy and concern for others in a social setting.
You can take the position that it is not your responsibility, and that's fine, but I argue that it is your problem. This is a society, in which we all live. We are all responsible for it. Are you one of those people who complains about trash on your neighborhood lawn and then steps over it claiming that it doesn't belong to you? But doesn't it? If it's your neighborhood lawn, and there is trash that you see, why not pick it up? I do. It may not be my trash, or originally my responsibility to throw it away, but it becomes my problem if I don't like it and desire differently. My toddler is following suit, and picks up trash he sees all over the place. It's people who care about people who make good neighbors, good neighborhoods, and good countries. Taking the "it's not my responsibility or my problem" position is exactly why crime is rampant.
Another Venn diagram for you: not all people who think that other people are not their problem are criminals, but it is likely that nearly all criminals believe that other people are not their problem.
Families are not showing their children empathy, love and concern. They neglect their children, and then beat them or degrade them for finding themselves in trouble.
Jail is punishment, it's degrading, and it's sickening. Being caged is not a luxury, and if it is, it goes to show how empty and poor of spirit the people are who go there. Rather than perpetuation these people's emptiness and pity, yes, I much rather take my money(which is being taken from me anyway) and use it assist these people in ways that work for us all. Punishing these people is not one of those ways(we have proof of that). We know what the solution is, and other countries have figured it out as well. It seems as though we in this country are simply more interested in "an eye for an eye" than solving any problems.

I don’t need to know the definition of a government to know that a family is not and can not be a government. With your statement that a family is absolutely the first governments can be disproven very easily. A government can and does have the power to take money from its citizens by force if necessary a family can not. You can not force a 3 year old to contribute to the family government. A government can and does many things your family government can not do. Stating that a family is the absolute first government is the first form of government indoctrination which is part of the USA’s problem now.
You next go into abuse. This statement goes from a slap on the hand to total beating to verbal to psychological abuse. The spanking and scolding are not abuse unless you talk to government officials or doctors. There is a point that spankings do turn into abuse but that is not part of this discussion. Kids today do have more power than we did as kids, this has come from the government and in some cases the parents themselves.
I never stated being raised in a ghetto means you were abused; don’t read something into my statement. By you wanting to stick and give all this information regarding abuse you must deal with it daily.
It is my position that I am not responsible for you or anyone else except my family. That being said it doesn’t mean I am not to be a good citizen. By your standards I am responsible for everyone, not just my family but everyone in the world and their actions. That is a socialist idea. Being a good citizen does not have a secondary meaning of being responsible for other people. Crime being rampant has nothing to do with me being responsible for other people. Crime has a lot to do with the break down of the family.
Once again I never stated or will ever state that being locked up is a luxury. What I have always stated is that the criminals that are locked up have many luxuries that working people don’t have. You state you don’t want to spend money to lock up criminals, do you want murders, child rapist, bank robbers, etc out to roam your neighborhood? I’m sorry I don’t.

I can assure you that he has been to bond hearings and has been denied bond each and every time. The man who molested my son had 3 bond hearings, YET the Judge denied his bond based on his charges.
You also seem to be very immature with your response.
Also depending on the charges he has and whether or not he is pleading not guilty will determine how long he will sit in jail before trial. It could also be that your brother has already been tried and convicted and you are just not posting that on here. If he is pleading not guilty I can tell you right now jury trials take longer to get around to hearing.
If he abided by the law in the 1st place he wouldn't be sitting where he is at right now. I have no patience for law breakers anymore. They deserve all that they get.

One way these criminals can beat the system is all file for a speedy trial. This would force the county into either setting them free or give them better plea deals. it would put our court system to a complete overload.

Going back to the man who molested my son real quick. His case was on the trial calendar 3 times and all 3 times it was post poned. He eventually did take a plea deal(I don't agree with it, but I learned the law is not always on the victims side), and by the time he took the plea deal he had been sitting in DC for a yr.
He was denied bond everytime he went before Judge Emerson due to the charges he had against him and the number of them(7 counts of child molestation and 7 counts of sexual battery of a minor).
This man also worked for the DC BOE too in HVAC. He worked at AHS, BAES, FMS and SDES. He also attended Central Baptist and was a Sunday school teacher there who coached the upward sports program for basketball and baseball.
I just find it impossible to believe that this person has a brother who has been sitting in jail for 15 months with NO bond hearings or anything. I smell something very fishy with that story. I am guessing he has some pretty serious charges against him and they are preparing for trial.
