Is there any program to help with all the people injured and killed by white suburban drunk drivers or are we to just continue to over look that problem as if it doesn't exist??

why should there be? I watch the news everyday and mabey 1 time a month a drunk driver kills someone or themselves but EVERYDAY there is a story of a shooting, stabbing in the CITY who the suspect is always a BLACK male and if there isn't a shooting or stabbing one night there's 3 the next. They should let the black victims die or bring them straight to the morgue and save the poor who're man innocently shot by a black who wanted his shoes.

According to this article...

The Rochester model has social workers and psychiatrists screen victims at the hospital to identify risk factors from school to home that make them more prone to be victimized again or become violent themselves.

Once the team identifies the child’s needs, be it behavioral issues or drug addiction, a plan is developed to address each one. Pathways to Peace is contacted and staffers begin working with the youths and their families, both in working through the traumatic event, intervening in any ongoing conflicts and handling follow-up

Thought:
It should be a proacative approach. Use the techniques to identify problems BEFORE a shooting occurs, not after.@$$ backwards racistchester.
Some getting played while others getting paid.
