After being shot in the colon while selling locust on the street, Darrell found that he was the butt of many jokes thereafter.

Your comment was So uncalled for. Shouldn't you be in school? It IS a big deal because people are dying and a lot of them are innocent victims of some low-lifes actions. I hardly think people are going to be as nonchalant about this as car alarms going off in the mall parking lot. It's people from the burbs with your attitude that causes city residents to have such disdain for suburbanites. Grow up and free your mind And instead of spewing such hateful statements, get off your ass and do something to help alleviate the problem!

It's really sad to see Greece Teen's mentality in this day and age. I'll bet you that if a member of her family wer killed, she wouldn't feel as she does. Personally, I think if she's a teen, she need not be on this chat board at all hours of the day! Shouldn't she be in school or if home schooled at least be focusing on her lessons instead of arguing with everyone else that's here?

That my friend is a very good point.
The mentality you just wrote about is a window.
It is that mentality that allows camara's to be put up and police states to be allowed

Sorry but I agree with Greece Teen. And I am not White. Its sad but true. The behavior that is displayed does not show that they are seeking progress and betterment of their lives. Its already expected that as the weather gets warmer, there will be more shootings/stabbings of city residents. Why? Because that is what has been happening every year and more so as the years go by, the economy is in shambles, people can't pay their bills. Turning to drugs/alcohol to escape. Not being educated...The list is a long.

But that does not mean there isn't HOPE.

hey sis - thx for the backup - the Hope is gone - when ppl don't care about living human beings then all is lost. my dad sez it's easy to take a life but we can't give them a life back when it is taken.

the only thing that can save the hood kids is education, i think schools need to take the clowns from classes and let the ones that want to learn continue learning.

even in my school the clowns are there to show off or have fun - there are ppl who want to learn and better themselves and then there ar the ones who just don't care about anything cept themsleves.

and another thing - the skools don't teach the basics anymore - so the kids don't have basic skills - and they are doomed to fail miserably.

yep the crime will go up with the weather better now, so we'll send in the scrapers to clean up after the fact cos it's too hard to prevent it anymore cos parents gave up to

*Greece Teen* Hmm you're speaking some truth here. Some of these "parents" should have had that card taken away a long time ago. Kids don't know how to put education first and styles/clothes/bling. And tho parenting begins at home, children are with teachers more hours a day than they are with their parents. The blame is to be on everyone, yet no one owns up to it. Easier to point fingers, laugh and talk about it on blogs like this and on rants and raves.

the hood kids parents need to complain to the city more and tell them to take them clown boys and gurls out of classes.

my dad says they pay more in the city for school taxes then in our town and them kids are getting cheated cos the state just wants them out of skools and passing no matter ..
