    You can attribute a few of those to scum we let into this country, and in your case, the scum that is born here.

    parents might know their children longer than anyone else and understand their impulses better than anyone but that's not the same thing as actually knowing what they're doing at any given moment. we need better parenting!

    why can't technology that's commercially available and acceptable for more mundane purposes be used to ensure safety??

    if we develop technology that you can't unlock your phone unless you've got the right fingerprint, why can't we do it for guns? if a child can't open a bottle of aspirin, we should make sure they can't pull a trigger on a gun.

    people are not going to church. people are not being taught God. you can tell that by the respect that's given when you pray.

    the homes are not the incubators they used to be. to actually nurture children and give them all the tools they need to begin in the world without robbin and stealin and killin. a lot of them are mimicking what they see. we have a lot of teenage mothers who don't know anything about parenting. they don't have the help to help them parent because their mothers are very young. you've got grandmothers who are 32 because kids are having babies so young. nobody knows anything about being a parent at that age. kids are growing up on their own and being taught that the world owes them something.

    .Kids that are growing up on their own, are then being raised by Hollyweird, and trying to be accepted so bad that they are vulnerable to getting involved with the wrong crowd or individuals.

    Americans are saying we fight the injustice and realise it's there, but we love our country, we applaud the progress we've made, as it's a pathway to success.

    DON'T abandon your children.

    DON'T get pregnant at 14.

    DON'T allow your neighborhoods to deteriorate into free fire zones.

    it takes a village to raise a child. but most people don't live in villages. many live in impoverished, isolated urban communities, and few Americans, really want to talk honestly and practically about what to do to raise a child in those conditions.

    after a 16 year old was shot in Dallas, a person commented: "i have 2 adult kids and there's no way they would've been walking out on the streets after dark, AND i always knew where they were. i blame the victims, all parents can do better"

    the boy in question was accompanying his friend on a short walk home to his grandmother's house. his mom knew exactly where he was. she just couldn't save him.

    .The not allowing your neighborhood to go to hell has become a major problem these days. As the government tries to find housing for millions of impoverished citizens, many lower working middle class community's are being devastated by poverty sprawl. Once the government gets a foothold in your community or neighborhood, it's all you can do in order to try and get out before you lose your entire life's investment, and history in the situation.

    The working middle class and upper middle classes are running out of places to take their investments to, especially when the government is staying right on their heels.

    i'm talking about something else. i'm talking about these folks who cry when their son is standing there in an orange jumpsuit. where were you when he was 2, 12, and 18? how come you didn't know he had pistol? these folks are not parenting. they're buying shit for their kids, like 500$ sneakers. they wouldn't spend 500$ on Hooked On Phonics.
