Seems Representative Cynthia McKinney joins the majority of educated, alleged caring and responsible Americans Willfully Ignoring America's expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect,* aka *Poverty*, that for decades has deprived untold numbers of emotionally abused and neglected young developing children like Tupac Shakur, Freddie Gray, Michael Singleton, Michael Brown, as well as Grammy winner and victim of life scarring Childhood Trauma Kendrick Lamar, his three siblings and numerous cousins from experiencing and enjoying a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.
In paragraph eight of a January 20, 2011 LAWeekly interview published online, Kendrick, born in 1987, the same year songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and *VICTIM DENIAL* that was nominated for a Grammy award, he told the interviewer:
*"Lamar's parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. "My mom's one of 13 [THIRTEEN] siblings, and they all got SIX kids, and till I was 13 everybody was in Compton," he says."*
*"I'm 6 years old, seein' my uncles playing with shotguns, sellin' dope in front of the apartment."*
*"My moms and pops never said nothing, 'cause they were young and living wild, too. I got about 15 stories like 'Average Joe.'"*
As far as I am concerned, Kendrick revealed the 'dirty little secret' that Senator Rand Paul and virtually all alleged caring, concerned Americans willfully pretend does not exist.
Kendrick speaks about experiencing Childhood Trauma, witnessing MASS CHILD ABUSE and MALTREATMENT, violent felon family and community members who intentionally and recklessly ignored the well being of their children, depriving these kids from having a home environment where they feel safe, loved and cared for.
In school little Kendrick and his Elementary School classmates are being taught to be good citizens and to respect their neighbors.
While at home, under duress of being harmed if they open their lil mouths, families and communities are teaching their children anti-social 'people and community' harming values that often results with kids experiencing during a critical period of their childhood development a mentally debilitating condition known as Cognitive Dissonance.
No small wonder why Kendrick raps and speaks about childhood and adult depression, as well as experiencing suicidal thoughts.

*(NY Times May 18, 2015 - Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)*
At the 2015 BET Awards, twenty-eight-year-old Kendrick Lamar, a victim of early childhood trauma/abuse perpetrated by violent felon family members who exposed him, his siblings and numerous cousins to gun violence and other life threatening anti-social behaviors, performed these lyrics for a world wide audience, "“And we hate the po-po, wanna kill us dead in the street fo’ sho”."
Obviously Kendrick's mind has been bent out of shape.
He admits growing up being conditioned by violent, gun toting drug peddling family members and neighbors to accept the violent Street Culture prevalent in many communities experiencing massive Child Abuse and Neglect, while raging at the police for trying to protect his peaceful neighbors from the violence and life-harming anti-social behaviors his Violent Felon family and community members embrace.
No small wonder Kendrick is an emotional wreck.
Frankly, after twelve years of regularly witnessing and dealing with human pain suffered by far too many innocent people emotionally and/or physically injured (or worse) by teens and adults raised by single moms who in my opinion were criminally negligent in raising their newborns, infants, toddlers, children and teens...I recognized that concerns for my own deteriorating emotionally well being, my attitude, as well as concerns for my physical safety were telling me it was time to pack up and leave the madness behind me while I still had some compassion and empathy left in my soul.
Sadly, kids like Kendrick, his three siblings, his numerous cousins, many neighborhood friends, elementary and JHS classmates DO NOT have the option of packing up and leaving their mad world behind them when their mad world begins affecting their ability to remain sane, or being able to discern knowing right from wrong.
If Representative Cynthia McKinney & other Americans are sincerely concerned with protecting Americans from homelessness, drug abuse and other anti-social behaviors they will honestly recognize & truthfully address the issue of Childhood Trauma responsible for many depressed kids maturing into depressed teens who look to gangs and drugs for comfort.
Representative Cynthia McKinney is a lawmaker, how about crafting laws designed to protect young children like Kendrick from CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT PARENTING?
Yes, some police officers need to do a better job of remaining professional, adhering to their training, keeping cool and not allowing the human suffering and oppression of children many witness on a daily basis to erode their humanity or basic human respect for others.
Just as some single and married moms need to do a much better job of parenting by raising, nurturing, socializing and supervising infants, toddlers and children who mature into fairly happy, responsible teens and adults respecting their peaceful neighbors and the authority figures responsible for maintaining peace in our neighborhoods.
I'd like to know who is TAKING ACTION to protect our Nation's most vital, valuable and precious resources from experiencing Childhood Trauma at the hands of grossly irresponsible CRIMINAL & CRIMINALLY NEGLIGENT PARENTING???
How many more generations of supposedly caring, loving concerned, compassionate Americans will KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT while witnessing VIOLENCE and other anti-social behaviors committed by depressed, angry teens and adults full of rage and resentment for being introduced to a childhood of pain & struggle by grossly immature maternal caregivers who WILLFULLY IGNORE their parental responsibility and duty to their children, as well as their moral, ethical and societal obligation & duty to their neighbors and community to place the emotional well being of their children *ABOVE ALL ELSE!!*
I'm sorry to pick on moms, though they are the caregivers we look to keep us safe, cared for and loved right from our start.

At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hitman and victim of Early Childhood Trauma/Abuse, Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski, Dr. Park Dietz explains why young Richard most likely developed into a emotionally disturbed, paranoid, cruel, heartless teen and man who did not give a frig about anyone else, including his wife and kids.
