Nothing new here. Hobbs crime rate is rising by the day. We need change. Government's main purpose is to keep us safe and they are failing along with our schools, it seems the higher our taxes the less we get for our money.

What the hell do you know about Hobbs NM. Crime does not always happen because of bad government Its because of the dumb ass people like you who blame someone else for the problems.
Government is only as good as the people is serves and with people like you we know why its weak.

Yes it is rising!! Do you blame any of it on the Hispanic culture saturating the area or the temporary employees hired & brought in to expand the growth? The Government is only as good as 'we' elect and put in control...what's feeding this crime frinzy? But then Hobbs has always been a mean little town since back in the '50-60's.

What do you mean the Hispanic Culture? The Hispanic culture has been evident in Hobbs for a very long time. What really is the problem for the rising rate of crime is the irresponsible parents who let their offspring do as they please. Instead of disciplining them at an early age, they encourage them to do whatever pleases them. When they get in trouble in school, parents always blame the teacher or administrator and say they pick on the child. If their child starts a fight, then they are doing right for not letting anyone take what is theirs. Where are the parents of these kids that are walking down the street at 10 pm? What about the kids who are in 6th grade reading at a 2nd grade level because their parents don't have time to practice reading with them. Parents blame teachers and schools when their child is not doing well in class, yet they forget that they are their child's first teacher. OH Nooooooooooo, let's forget that the parent has to be responsible for their child and make sure they are supposed to be doing what needs to be done. I understand there are single parents that have to work, but come on what is the excuse for neglect. I'm tired of hearing about the "Hispanic Culture", what about the responsibilities of the parents. Where are they?

I believe that the vicinity in which one lives has little to do with the choices one makes. These people had hispanic surnames but could be of Irish descent for all we know. I blame the person who could have turned the other cheek and walked away but didn't.

Let's not forget that a long time ago most of the mothers were not working. It's a good thing that there are less people on welfare but with it comes a set of new problems, children are not supervised as they used to be in the past. Most of the mothers that work... their mothers have to work also. If you qualify for a program that will care for the children until the mother is out of work that helps. For those mothers that have to work weekends and nights it's not that easy. There are fathers that have none or very little to do with their children. There are circumstances where the mother or father do not care about supervising their children but that ocurrs in all races. There are those that can't afford sitters or daycares and don't qualify for programs or on a waiting list. I'm so tired of hearing about blacks, hispanics when the subject of crime arises. Do people forget about "911"? People of all races died that day and days after. I've been around small towns and believe me I've seen where people of a certain social status have all kinds of crime swept under the carpet. I've been through the loss of a child he was murdered. I do agree that the leniency of New Mexico laws in the reason that crime continues to escalate. The district attorneys are busy with case after murder case which makes it difficult to get convictions or convictions that are suitable to the crime. By the way my son did turn the other cheek and was killed anyway.

you know what the community really needs is a good positve hangout where some one can uplift our children, that come out of broken homes and due to drugs and alcohol. maybe thats where the anger comes from. betrayel comes into their life. fear, darkness and no trust. they feel abanded, so theres where our children go from good to bad. maybe they need soul searching or some one to help those that are criying out. for some one to minister toour children. no one is perfect we all make mistakes, but i believe people change. god only knows. if he changed me and my husband anyone could change. my life was full of darkness, hatred, anger and had a heartened heart, but now i stepped into the light, where we found my lord jesus christ. hope to be back home in a year but were going to reach the lost souls in that community. we are praying for all the people in hobbs and peace officers as well as all the government leaders. i plead ahedge of protection and the blood of the lamb over everyone of you. amen.

Margaret, you should get some friends and go to the board meetings and suggest a positive place like boys and girl clubs. It always takes someone to get the ball rolling.
