Whoever wrote this article misspelled Sandalwood as Sandlewood. I take this as hostile graffiti. You have disrespected Sandalwood. The punks of news writer nation must pay.

I don't understand the reluctance of law enforcement agencies across the country to apprehend and prosecute these neighborhood terrorists. Are the cops so intimidated that they would rather sacrifice our public safety than do their job to serve and protect us from these organized groups of fanatical radicals?

It's all rap music's fault !
Plus all these guys are pretty worthless by themselves, that's why they join gangs. To feel tough.
Probably all have small, well, you know.....

I live across the street from Boone Park by the tennis courts. I see gang graffiti all over the park. I also see a group of young people hanging out there as well as across from my house. I've pointed this out to a policeman who lives in the area but nothing has been done. It's rather frightening.

Have police crews roam the city with industrial wood chippers.When thugs are spotted run them through the chipper.Seperate the grillz and bling and melt it down to pay for gas/operating expenses.

I lived in Jacksonville and moved back to New Jersey because i thought the crime was so bad. Well when i moved back here i found that the gangs are everywhere and so is crime. It is a battle we all have to endure. No matter where you live anymore. We have to stand up to these people and fight back !

Let me be very clear, there are no real gangs in Jacksonville. The Folk nation is claimed here so often because it was disbanded years ago allowing the suburbinites to represent without reprecussion. Under no chance are these Jax wanna-be gansters members of any gangs. They just aren't tough enough. In Jax if you listen to rap music and think you are a gangster, you are not, you are a poser

Yes they are scared. Its a shame isn't it. This country has come to the point that we can't do anything as "free" citizens. Cops sometimes don't seem to care. Prisons are over crowded. People get raped, mugged, robbed, and beaten everyday. The sad part is those who are able to do something just say "thats life". I mean look around, rape is hardly a crime. If the defense attorney can prove that a girl was wearing provocative or suggestive clothing, they can get the rapist off with barely an assault charge. The governments waste or time and our taxpayers dollars by putting people like the Edenfields in prison. You cannot restore people like that. It pisses me off that I am paying, PAYING for those people to continue living. Im going to quote the end of a news story. "The indictment also claims George Edenfield and his 58-year-old father sodomized the boy and forced him to perform oral sex while Peggy Edenfield watched and masturbated." These people are still alive. He was only six years old. Yet the news is worried about gangs. Well when our judicial system can take care of the bigger problems then maybe we can trust them with the smaller ones.

Its because most of the so called "gangs" in Jacksonville are just a bunch of jits (juveniles) trying to act tough aren't any real threat.
