Just want to thank the parents of the three murderers for their contribution to society. Thanks for the murdering scum you produced. Nice job.

Oh well at least they keep killing each other. Good.
You don't hear of white kid's hitting each other with shovels.
Wow. I must be missing something. Where in the article is their race mentioned?

We can argue all we want about the need for social service programs for inner city youth, but this is the result of someone not paying enough attention to these children when they were growing up. They became vulnerable to the grasp of gangs, and the rest is in the story above.

Granted the parents have an obligation to properly raise their children. But when they fail, society is left to clean up the mess.

Republi-thugs are quick to scream about too much spending on support programs. This is what happens when our absent Gov T-Paw pulls the plug on services to help youth.

Where in the world are the parents of these little scum bags! It just blows my mind that people produce such evil spawn...they reported on the news this morning that 1 of the kids mother stated that her son was forced into a confession and he is innocent of these charges. Sounds like they all had the same story to me! STOP having kids if you can not parent properly...I think the parents need to go down with the flipping little b-tards. I am so tired of hearing about all the violence.

Let me get this straight. "Parents"?????.
I would argue those who claim the status of parents have a good understanding of what this means.
Want-to-be parents should have an education in parenting FIRST.
But no,'they' are allowed to breed simply because they can.(It feels good) No consideration given as to consequences.
This mid-set is acceptable more and more, resulting in the dumbing down the gene pool.
The parents should be fined the costs of birthing these despicable heathens, and color does not matter.
If one can partakes of the flesh, one should be held accountable for the results. This should be ingrained in our society in the harshest of terms. Accountability...Responsibilit y...Consequences
Blame it on the dumb-ass politicians for 'buying' the votes with so-called entitlements as in 'grading on the bell-curve' where the dumbest or least motivated get the gravy with no effort.

You don't need a support program to teach your kid right and wrong and to value human life.

Sorry people, but it is more than fair to assume the race of the accused when we find out it was a gang initiation. To suggest otherwise is ignorant and naive. We all know what race the majority of gang members are, and we can logically deduce what race the majority of those who aspire to join a gang are. It's not racist, it's a statistically proven fact.

I bet you think this is really clever and cute, but it really is complete nonsense.

In your mind all children are produced so that the parents can receive financial benefit. I guess I can follow this. It's not completely outlandish. But you follow it up with some sort of hodgepodge conspiracy theory about government strategies...

Does the tinfoil hat ever cut your forehead when you are keeping them from reading your thoughts?

Regardless... The 14 year old, the 16 year old, and the 24 year old are all un-salvagable. The other 16 year old is dead. Sad.

So, since it's logically deducible, are there more white, black, asian, hispanic, or somalli gang members in minnesota?

I don't think you can logically deduce anything. You sir, are an idiot.

I'd assume all involved have some affiliation with a "program." Though that seems absent from these types of stories for whatever reason. Anyone at the PP care to answer to that?

BTW - what EXACTLY does it COST to prevent such behavior these days anyway? Nevermind, I forgot that COST is something that needs to only go up without end in sight.

Perhaps I don't need a support program. And perhaps you don't. But we have seen what happens when the safety net for our society is removed as T-Paw did with his cuts these past many years.

If this is acceptable behavior, then let's just keep cutting those budgets. I am not comfortable in saying this is acceptable behavior. Obviously T-Paw is or he would not have cut the budgets for social programs in his unallotment last year.

Way to go T-Paw! All the corporate fat cats love you, but those who are not so fortunate hate you with good reason.

Not all children. Productive members of society create and provide materially for their children, modeling positive behavior. The parasite class reproduces in order that their spawn will provide for them materially with little further thought, by forcing the productive to do with less and give to them. The mechanism of coercion for the productive to feed the parasites is government, itself a parasite.
The other 16 y.o. that wanted to be a thug is dead. Not sad.
