Unbelievable!!! I moved to this area a year ago expecting cowboys and good ole boys. Man was I wrong. Everywhere I go, every young adult walks around like they're from Compton. Get a life. You're not hard, and never will be! This is West Virginia! It's not L.A.
Pick up a book, do something constructive! Be a role model. Stop acting like low life wannabe thugs who can't read or write! My prayers go out to the little girl who was shot by a felon who should've been incarcerated and never had the chance to injure innocent people. Parents need to nip this in the bud early. Everytime some bar up here has hip-hop kareoke, someone ends up stabbed or shot. HIP HOP SUCKS!!!! Stop acting like rappers and act like adults that aren't brain-dead. I hope the shooter meets someone in jail who cares about children and beats the tar out of him. The cops need to take the streets back or we will!!

Seriously. It has gotten out of control. The family has fallen apart over the last thirty years. The young people of today look up to people like Snooki and Kim Kardashian. It's pathetic. Life is about good decisions and bad decisions. Start making better decisions. Push away from the fast food and start being a contributing member to society.
