Parents say Enough is Enough. Heck yea enough is enough. It seems the Grand Rapids Police Department doesn't care. Sooner or later all the gangs will be gone because they all have gotten shot. Does the Grand Rapids Police Department care, what have they done to try to stop the vilonce activity?

We were at Club Revolution last night. I was parked right outside of the club and i saw the kids come out. it appeared that it was just firecrackers set off. It was not loud enough to be gun shots.

First of all, tell me how this club can restrict the parents of these kids from coming inside. The 14-17 year olds are minors are they not.I would really like to see them try to stop an adult parent trying to get their child from inside that place. It seems illegal to me. Can any one tell me what is going on here?

Good point Cracker. I'd bust that door down if I needed to get my kids out of there.

I guess its considered a private party and they can choose who to allow inside, but i dont know....I thought it seemed like a pretty safe place on the inside during all the excitement and panic. All of the security guards pushed kids to one area and made every one stay out of harms way.

I think the Parents should be held responsible for their Kids that are in GANGS they are not parenting if their kids are running the streets with guns shooting and killing other kids and other people.
And YES Something does need to be done NOW before any one else gets hurt or killed
I hear older people say back when they were young if we got out of hand Our parents would tear their behinds up now a days people are afraid to spank their kids and LOOK WHAT IS HAPPENING.kids killing kids.the courts made it ok for this
spanking and abuse are 2 different things and Parents SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO SPANK THEIR KIDS maybe then they would not end up in the streets killing each other

my parents say i cant go back to the club and i think it a load of crap. what are they going to do keep me from school if someone brings a gun. they cant protect us all the time. i will go back to the club with or without my parents premission. i dont really care i was 15 yards from the person with the gun. who cares i dont if they had better guards then stuff like this wouldent happen. but still i dont care i will be going back!!!!

ya its me again i forgot something.... so ya as for the cops and stuff trying to stop they arent doing crap if they wrer there would not be any more shootings or stabbings. so if they try harder to stop it they might be able to do something. but also the person who shot is smart enofe to know that there is going to be heat at the club now what are the chances of him comming back and doing it again.
