Curfews: the surest confirmation available that 60 years of democrat rule turns a community into a wasteland.

And therein lies the problem - people would rather piss and moan and have it be someone else's fault than take some PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. Heaven forbid they try to actually be responsible parents! Let the city do it! That's what we pay taxes for! Right??

WRONG!

Idiots.

And no, marches DON'T solve anything. Taking PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY does.

There are no strong male figures in the homes to physcially prevent the teens from going out after dark. That's what happens when you have a single parent (just a mom) home, or the single parent works nights and no one supervises the kids.

Dads have been replaced by govt checks. But govt checks do not make a family and they don't provide a model for teenagers to emulate. On top of that, young mothers are no longer under any pressure to find good men, since they aren't going to be in the (free) household. Courtesy of your local democrat.

All the more reason for the mothers to take personal responsibility, perhaps by not becoming single mothers in the first place!

Someone once told me that the most important thing a man can do for his children is to LOVE THEIR MOTHER. How sad that so many of them have no clue...

All the more reason to encourage Birth Control (even give out free condoms and cheap BC pills on health plans) to lower unwanted pregnancy to single young moms. Also give access to abortions, so there are less unwanted/unneeded children. Cuz once they are born, then you have to pay out more Welfare.

Pregnancies usually happen due to rape. The male Afrcoid survives on the basic instincts of survival and reproduction.

You have a good point.... but I wouldn't even respond to him. Filling this forum with hundreds of racists comments isn't cool at all... I've been ignoring him, as have others. Just a thought.

Yes, not even to the Nazi scientists who unethically research the brain structures of people who can't perceive the difference between past tense and present tense! I will always defend these people!
