    Maybe the parent now wishes that they would have actually disciplined their child during the formative years.... then again, maybe the parent began the pattern of behavior themselves...

    I'm guessing she's black and her single mother has other kids by other fathers.

    So, quite different than my household at fourteen where I was taught right from wrong and that I was responsible and accountable for my actions and expected to do well in school, among a whole lot of other things this kid, and millions like her, don't get in their worlds.

    Smoke a doob, go to school, come home, deliver a couple hundred newspapers, split some firewood and drink a few beers if it was winter, work in the yard other seasons.

    When I was 14, I got my first job on the loading dock of the local newspaper, we thought of girls,beer and maybe sneaking a cigarette or joint behind the barn, not shooting people and we rode around with our deer rifles on our gun racks in our trucks all the time back then.


    People in the inner city don't have a clue what a true good time is I guess.

    Cuttin' Firewood with my Pa for the Winter... Playing Capture the Flag... Maybe Ravi-Knocking some houses and Running...

    Occasionally TPing a House.

    Sneakin' some Booze.

    A Fist Fight after School that the Crowd would End when it was Obvious it was Over...

    There is a Police Station @ my High School now...

    We had the First Police Presence there in 1989 and that was over too many Fights... That was High School, not 14 year olds...

    And Southside East Westminster ain't a Nice Area.

    And example of a Girl in my Hood (a Friends little Sister) who got mixed up in Gangs in and around High School Age, she was Busted Breaking into Houses and Stealing Guns for the Gang she was with...

    She is Entirely Detached from Society and has been a Drug Addict since her Young Teens.

    She was an Abnormality 20 years ago... Something EVERYONE thought, wow, how did that happen...

    I am Certain that this Girl in this Story is also involved with Drugs... It's Obvious she's Gang Related.

    And I don't Think it's as shocking 20 Years Later...

    And that's what the REAL Tragedy is.

    :)

    peace...

    Why do you always post articles about black kids doing something wrong? Do you and Chanel get your stories from the same place?
