Gangs become an option for boys only when they dont see any other path. We cant give up on these inner city kids. We have to keep taking their hands and leading them back to the path. the path to stable, productive, violence free lives. It is on all of us to keep trying to reach this lost generation. Our schools are unable to do it alone, and badly underfunded. Why I read 1 school could no longer even afford toilet paper. We need a multi-pronged approach and the ONLY entity capable of making any change happen in this is government.

Do you REALLY expect us to believe that the public schools are underfunded?

The governemnt is the CAUSE of most problems, not the solution.

If the government would quit giving them a check each month they would go out and find a job somewhere which means they would leave the ghetto and that would show their children how to be responsible adults instead of lazy moochers. When they have been slaves to the government for generations what do you expect? Take the check away and get them to work. It's also proven that more money to schools isn't the answer. It's a morals problem and that starts with parents, and that means a mom and dad, teaching them that working for a living is honorable and staying in school is important. The liberal experiment hasn't worked so its time for a change.

The government has CREATED most of this mess.

More sad news out of Chicago today as violent gangs continue to take over the unarmed city. The young girl and honor student who performed at President Obama's second Inaguration just last week has been gunned down and killed. More from the New York Daily News:

 A 15-year-old Chicago honor student who participated in inaugural events celebrating President Obama's re-election was fatally shot Tuesday just blocks from her school.
