You know...I really don't want to hear people crying on TV about how they shouldn't have to be afraid to go to school when they aren't willing to help the police put the waste of human skin and air space that shot those kids behind bars. Either help get those pieces of filth off the streets or live with the consequences of aiding them in hiding.

They may be worried about retribution. Better to get shot by a brother than to help "the Man."

And that statement right there explains why gangs have such an easy time moving in and taking over neighborhoods where this type of thinking prevails and one third of the young men there wind up dead or in prison. Nothing is going to change until you understand that when you keep doing what you've been doing, you'll keep getting the same results you've been getting.
