unfortunately soccer and baseball don't attract the "thug" element (which is a nice way of saying the N word) like basketball does.

How about when cops are called to a city facility and alerted to an imminent problem? Do you think they should show up to prevent such a problem; or just wait in their car until the problem happens and plays itself out?

We shouldn't have to hire police to babysit the "animals"!!!

The league season has been cancelled out of fear for the safety of the kids. The city will authorize overtime for cops to direct traffic at Aud events, but they can't put 2 or 3 officers at a sporting event at a city owned facility.
Nice job Palmieri.
Just another reminder that we're on our own and the police are nothing more than revenue generators and paperwork bitches after something goes down.

That poster was responding to the idiot that accused him of expecting the government to babysit because he said it was the Police's job to protect citizens. It's already known that the Police had fair warning that there was going to be gang trouble at the Rec center that night and their response was to "have a car patrolling in the area that night" instead of having officers stationed at the center to try and avoid trouble. But I guess because there were gang members there, the safety of the people who weren't trouble makers didn't matter to the Police or the Mayor.

Last game I went to, I needed to use the ladies room, and 3 little girls (not white) entered the ladies room, they didn't even use the ladies room, they were just seeing if anyone was in there so they could BEG for money. The girls were around 9 or 10. I couldn't believe it. It was pathetic. They teach them young!!!

Like Bill Cosby quoted one time on a talk show "If we want to be treated with RESPECT, then we must treat others with RESPECT. All those involved should be ashamed. It is truly disgusting!!!

Where did the poster make any excuses? The building is city owned, they sponsor the events in their facility, and they charge admission. With those circumstances considered, it can't be looked at as "hiring the police to babysit animals"! It has to be considered a situation that the police should be involved in especially because there was forewarning that there would be trouble that night! And you completely missed the other information! Every kid on those teams is not an animal and deserves to be able to play sports without the problems! It's the responsibility of both the city and the police to keep people safe there because it is a city owned property sponsoring an event and charging admission.

Wrong, it is the responsibility of the parents and the kids themselves to act like human beings and not animals. I walk in there to watch my sons game and I am petrified. I hide my purse in the car trunk so I don't get attacked by the animals.

I can't disagree with your basic statement about people and how they should be responsible for acting like human beings and not animals. But I have to say, with your logic, the cops shouldn't come to your house if you're robbed. And they shouldn't notify the public of any crimes happening in your area, because according to you, the police have no business being involved in a situation like that since it's the responsibility of everyone else to follow the law and not commit a crime. So let me know how that works out for you.

Petrified? Really? That's a bit extreme. The animals only attack if you show fear. Walk in with a "go f yourself attitude" and the monkeys will show you respect.

Why should you have to change your attitude when watching a youth basketball game? Police presence should not be needed at any youth sporting event. If you don't feel safe at a youth basketball game something is very wrong.

They shouldn't be radioed to go to a youth basketball game before tipoff. Yes I understand if there's a problem you go, which I hear they kind of took their time, but still my point is "why should you need police presence at a youth sporting event? If it has the potential to be dangerous wherever you are holding this event, maybe you shouldn't be playing at that venue.

You obviously know nothing about what went down here. Post about your nails or hair, or just go do the dishes.

If "animals" live in my house, and there is constantly trouble with the animals in my house and their animal gang people, then NO, I wouldn't expect the cops to waste their time with the animals again and again and again!!!
