I would say you are right about too rentals, but skin color doesn't have anything to do with it.

It all goes back to the simple fact that there is no discipline. Kids are not made to answer any more for their actions. When discipline was removed from the schools and parents can be sued for spanking, or fear of having their kids taken. My mom beat my rear, I love her with all my heart and I know what it means to respect others.

Read the headline again.. teen boy SHOT in leg.. not teen boy SHOT SOMEONE ELSE in leg. He may have been shot by a 40 year old man. Looks like someone else needs the discipline of reading and understanding before making judgements!

It's called people don't care about others. Has nothing to do with race. Whites, hispanics and blacks all screw up big and all do the same type of crimes. Stop being blind.... The reason is because of how he or she was raised by parents,or it could be a mental health issue that hasn't been released. We don't need people judging others on skin color. Gain a little bit more knowledge. Whites shoot people too. Just like blacks and hispanics. For some reason people don't want to except that fact.People want to hide behind the color of peoples skin. Take some criminal justice classes and see how a person's mind works. AGAIN IT DOESN'T MATTER ON THE COLOR OF SKIN. We don't live in the old days.... Let's not teach our children to be racist. Thats the last thing this world needs.

So what if they were black? What if a black sneezes on you are you going to die? Stupid crap...Teen's is the right anwer. IF the parents would put their children in activities during the summer and then after school activities as well there would be less crime going on among teens. Teens would be occupied...
