I hear about all the gang shooting and never really thought about it. Eastside kids killing each other over turf wars or whatever else that may be buggin them for the day. On Sunday, the gang task force was arresting our neighbors. Four kids due to this shooting. We knew when they moved in "Renters" there would be issues. Shooting cars driving down the road with paint guns, playing basketball at 4 a.m., cars coming and going. You call the police and they take a report, really not much they can do. Now they are being questioned for murder. I wonder how "Mom" feels now! Perhaps, they should of been made to get a minimum wage job so they didn't have so much time on thier hands. Perhaps being taught the value of "Life"! Our neighborhood is normally quiet except for a couple of parties here and there. Our homes are well kept and we look out for one anothers property. Our property values are high and we work and raised our children to have respect for one another! Why is it so hard for parents to demand the same thing from thier children. Not arguing with the Police for picking on my children, trying to get them out of the mess they have gotten themselves into. These boys know better and if they did the crime they need to do the time. Get used to being locked in a cell, not having a choice to do things, but being told what to do for years! What a waste of a life! Don't worry I haven't heard the last from your types, I'll be paying also for your crime, in the form of taxes, to put food in your mouth because you'll just be another burden to society!

In the city of Saginaw you have the rich and the the poor. Parents raise their kids in the society they live in based on their income. higher class students have the chance to get better education and the opportunities it takes to be a successful individual. On the other hand lower class students get the short end of the stick. they are forced to go to the schools that may light the fuse for the individual to take the dangerous road of illegal success. They are constantly in an enviroment surrounded by negative influences which lack motivation in education. the madness is the killers genetics! Parents are there to be role models and share their knowledge with the future of america, Not lead their offspring into a life of crime!

You can be good perents, and set good examples. The streets will still eat your child alive if you're not carefull. Unless you have lived through it you really do not understand all of the dynamics. You son is forced to choose a side or everydoby targets him, and he's not safe to go to the mall, or sit on his own porch in the summer. What saginaw needs is to take control of this situation. The police, as well as other individuals could care less about these boys killling one another. The families are the one's hurt by this. one of the things I hated to hear when I lived there when a young man was murduered was "well he was always in trouble anyway". What kind of thing is that to say about someone son or brother. I do not care what they have done, they are human beings who someone loves. No one, absolutely no one deserve to be shot down like an animal. You are loosing a generation, doesn't anyone care?
