    My child just got shot in the mouth by a 17yrold and they gave him assault. Only cause he plead guilty as a mother I’m out rage how the juvenile system keep slapping these kids on the risk. I hope he recovers well like my child did. And its only been two months and a week. Prayers for this boy I will send.

    That is the problem Michelle. They go to “juvi” hall and it’s like a vacation to them. Give him a trial as adult and see what happens? Take as a example the Chardon shooter. Look what kind of sentence he got for an adult crime. Life!! Maybe that is what that”boy” should get.

    ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!! Where are these CHILDREN getting these guns? Mothers need to step up and do their jobs at home and start paying attention to their kids. They are to mean more to you then an increase in Welfare money.

    Those little thugs run around unattended while their Mommys are either high or on her back, and Daddy is in jail or dead. The guns like most things they have are stolen or traded for drugs. The parents have no more education in child rearing than the man in the moon. Just children having children.

    And we continue to appease, placate and cajole this perverted BLACK subculture with its disgusting, insidious and despicable lifestyle …… all in the sick name of diversity!

    So sad that you had to say Black subculture when you don’t even know the persons race. And sometimes it don’t matter how hard you try to give your child a good life they still do what they think is right.

        We give this black subculture so many breaks on a given day, yet all we get in return are murders, robberies, and rapes, and without any remorse whatsoever. The pain and suffering that’s left behind, sadly, can never be erased.

    White people don’t live in that neighborhood. They own the houses and collect the Section 8 checks but that’s about it
