"Some in the media inflate the number of children killed by counting as children the members of criminal teenage gangs who shoot each other in their turf fights."
They also count as kids anyone from 25 down - in crime - although they don't count the 18 year old soldiers. And they count any "kids" in gangs who are shot by the police.
A very well written article, Dr. Sowell. It's too bad the ones who need to read it - and take it to heart - won't.
