No cop wants to babysit a bus stop. Maybe the City should outsource this problem to an independent contractor that can solve an issue like this very quickly, for a very small fee. ;)

Apparently RPD is not listening, and the OP is frustrated.

What are some suggestions for a solution? I already gave mine.:)

A recreation center with pool tables, basketball court, X-boxes, PS2's, internet ready computers, cable TV and other activities to keep them engaged. Operated by staff members that CARE!!

They must learn how to play, solve conflict, communicate effectively... withOUT violence and intimidation.

What is the conflict? Why is there so much violence? How is another "community center" going to help?

Does this "Rally" suggest that the last several HUNDRED haven't worked?

How about they go home and do their homework and get their grades up so they can graduate. So they can get a non-minimum wage job and get off the welfare cycle.

Stop using logic and common sense on this forum - you're going to further confuse the low IQs of Rhonda, Caprice, etc.

And their parents have to attend counseling 3 times a week at the same place for their kids to attend. I want to know why their parents did not teach them to play, solve conflict and communicate effectively without violence.

Or we ban them from the buses for awhile. They either walk or their parents pick them up.

Stop busing altogether. You go to school in your own neighborhood so you can walk.

I'm not sure what the answer is. Should we reward them for bad behavior or should we punish them?

Every kid is going to argue and get in a fight occasionally. But this crap downtown is out of hand. The police need to get tough and this kids need to be shown this crap WILL NOT be tolerated downtown. Go in front of your own house and act like that.

Shouldn't that be the parents' job? The parents, if they were real parents, should have taught their kids about conflict resolution and non-violence long before it got to this point. Why do others have to continually clean up messes that these lazy, shiftless parents have made and have passed on to their kids?

Why should Rochester taxpayers fund all of these freebies for these teens who break the rules and can't behave themselves? Why should they be rewarded for trying to make Liberty Pole into a war zone?

Whose fault is it that they have nothing better to do with their time? Whose fault is it that they prefer to hang out and make nuisances of themselves instead of getting an after-school job or trying to improve their education?

How much more freebies do these kids need? The majority of them are already on welfare, get free medical care, live in subsidized housing, and have cell phones and iPods paid for by my hard-earned dollars.

When you've gotten freebies all your life and have had everything paid for by others, you start to expect the freebies will continue your entire life. The freebies need to stop and stop now.

CC> nail meet hammer,ouch! Great post! People like CC and the rest of her/his "crew" think that they are owed a free ride for life and will always demand more every chance they get.If things don't turn around soon,very soon,all hell will break loose and I don't believe any of us want that to happen.We have to change the mindset of the ones that think they have no reason to work or to better themselves.We have to teach them to have some pride and to control their lifes instead of acting like wild animals breeding,killing,raping and taking whatever they want because they want it now.Will that ever happen before the crap hits the fan?,God only knows,but I sure hope it does.---Before any of you racebaiting trolls start with the B/S what I said goes for all of the troublemakers of every race.--- Get some pride and become a man/woman so you can look your family in the face for a change without feeling like a useless POS.You might feel better about yourself. Just my true feelings,PP911.
