Did you realize that most of these comments are being made by lawyers(both worked in the DA's office). Apparantely to much free time. If i were the one id make sure im with that young girl he has. I wouldnt be spending my night on here or even cheat on her. So dont take offense to what they say there dickss
These comments are being made by ordinary citizens who are sick of the minority community doing nothing to stop their children from breaking into houses and stealing guns and then shooting each other. Not one post has been by a lawyer and by the way get your own name to post under. How many times are you going to steal other posters names?

"They need to learn how to resolve conflict without resorting to violence,'' he said. "They don't see life 10 to 15 years down the road and how they will ruin their life. The challenge is how to get parents and people to listen to them and to teach them there are other methods that don't involve violence.''

well, maybe they shouldn't be playing video games for 8 hours a day - where they shoot, mangle, mutilate, decapitate, and disembowel their opponents.

The electronic virtual society that they live in does not sponsor much in the way of non-violent conflict resolution.

Physical sports are based and modeled after gladiatorial engagements.
Not much non-violent conflict resolution there.
The more violent - the more successful - the greater the adulation and rewards - up to and including scholarships.
When was the last time you saw a nice guy non-violent scholarship doled out?
It's rare to see a performance based academic scholarship even allowed.
They are still stipulated on race as a form of discrimination or athletics.

The Erie parents can dialog all they want.
It way to little - way too late.
They are delivered unto the law of the jungle.
Only the fittest will survive.

I'd like to see ALL the black leaders step up and take a hand in addressing this.

This means politicians, reverends ,teachers, community heads, figure heads, etc...

I haven't seen this happen yet, what are they waiting for? Why is it a handful of concerned mothers?

Shame on these leaders as a whole. Address it. Don't lay it off on the white community.

When that happens, you've got my attention. Until then, it's all lip service, with smoke and mirrors from a few in charge.

Exactly! Where are the MEN? in the black community? You've hit the nail on the head. The problem with the black community is the men not taking ANY responsibility and leaving it all to the women. You go girl! is a very real and sad commentary on black culture.

The only way to help society is for the good people to make a stand. We need to stick together, If you see something report it. Don't turn your heads, or you've already became one of them. There are ways to to anonomys. Unfortunately our wonderful leaders and politicians are sending our money over seas to countries that don't even appreciate our help. Some countries burn the assistance we provide. And our poor soldiers, this is what they come home to this is the freedom that they so blindly fight for. Our country is about to experience a revolution, and the ignorant will kill each other off. I see things getting much worse from a government who has abandoned their true duties to the American people.

This problem is isolated to the black community. It's about time they steped up and took responsibility for their community and their children. Stop looking to others to fix problems you created or allowed to exist.
The problem is that drugs are illegal. If drugs were decriminalized there would be no money in selling drugs. But then policemen and judges would have to do something productive to make a living. So that is not going to happen. Ernest DiSantis has been accepting kickbacks from Charles Barber.

Tell you what ......these juvenile hoodlums think they are being persecuted & knockout games or shootings are the best way to show displeasure with America, in particular white people.
Well as these trouble makers are rounded up ......load them on a plane & drop them off in the African nation of their choice. That is any who would take them.
First we will see how long it takes them to adapt to African tribal life & the violence there.
Then we will see just how long it takes for a spiritual awakening of deep love & respect for America takes place in those still here .....I`ll bet it won`t take long.
