Who cares if it was Black, White , Mexican, Asian, etc....NEEDS TO STOP !!! We pay taxes to our city and county govt. to put an end to this kind of stupidity. Police cannot stop it all, it is up to the parents, city and county officials and most important the kids who are involved. Somewhere these kids have lost the value of life and love for each other. I have custody of a 9 year old WHITE child who is like these kids who were in Cooledge Park last night. We take him to counseling, church, and do our best to turn things around but it scares me that if there aren't any more changes soon he will be there too. This is not about race or poverty or social standing! Our schools in low income areas have some outstanding teachers but the school buildings are falling in and a disgrace. We are all to be held accountable! I would love to go down town at night and walk around and feel safe with my family but not with this going on. They are not even afraid of the police anymore....no respect! I am behind these police 100% when it comes to taking care of our safety! Our priorities have been misplaced! We are always looking to blame when we are all somewhat at blame for letting this get out of hand.
